RIP John Sutherlin
John & Peggy were more than expert bridge players. They both made immense contributions to the game as volunteers in multiple aspects. In 2008, they were jointly recognized as ACBL's Honorary Member of The Year. My sincere condolences to Peggy on her personal loss. John's passing leaves a deep ...
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Steve: That has never been my expectation (to read every page). I don't read every page, only what interests me. But what I said was "even a cursory glance through the magazine would make it clear who the CEO is" and just looking at the January front cover photo ...
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
Stu: Your question pertaining to the fairness (NOT) of a 3000 member District having the same representation (be it on the ACBL Board or number of GNT teams or NAP qualifiers) as a 20,000 member District, the answer is a resounding NO. But if "none (of the restructuring ideas ...

Dave W.: Lest there be any doubt, Bahar Gidwani is a class act; the ACBL Board of Directors are anything but
One Glaring Example of ACBL's Bloated Bureaucracy
Yours is one of several "obvious" examples where Districts should be merged. Today, there are huge disparities both in geographical size and membership. I think District 8 has fallen to 2,800 members and could easily be merged with District 15. Then you have Florida (D. 9) with ballpark 20 ...
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
I believe the following proposal "Ensuring the Future of Bridge" from Bob Hamman's group (Paul Street, Allan Graves) was originally distributed in June, 2015. The ACBL Board rebuffed and refused all efforts to change. https://playbetterbridge.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/ensuring-the-future-of-bridge.pdf Still valid almost three years later.
ACBL Search Committee Up and Rolling
Bob Hamman turns 80 on August 6, 2018. It may not be politically correct to say someone is too old (age discrimination?) but let's be realistic. Bob is among the all-time greatest bridge players and remains a force today. He tried a few years ago to reorganize the ACBL ...
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Bahar had many ideas, programs and plans. He was very upfront. If you try something like REACH and it doesn't work, you don't do it again. If it works, you keep it. I was told some players and staff didn't "like" Bahar. You don't hire a ...
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Marty, The number one tangible benefit of membership dues is the monthly ACBL Bridge Bulletin. This is veering off topic but it would be of interest to hear from the ACBL Bulletin Editors. I believe there have been multiple surveys of membership regarding the Bulletin. With ballpark 160,000 members ...
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Steve, comments like yours may make me wonder how many of the regular BW pundits are even members of the ACBL who play at clubs and tournaments. All ACBL members receive the monthly ACBL Bridge Bulletin. Even a cursory glance through the magazine would make it clear who the CEO ...
