The disappearing evening club game
"Some of the people that played at night were as old as the people who now don't want to play at night." Very true. Back when I started, people of all ages played in games that ended at 11 pm, then they went and closed the bar. Bridge was ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
You can vote your Board director out. It just has to be done indirectly, through the Unit Board members who cast the final votes. It starts with identifying a good (and willing -- not always easy) candidate to challenge the incumbent, then enlisting supporters throughout your District to lobby their Unit ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
You're shooting at the messenger. I doubt that Jay was happy about having to make this plea, but he's trying to reduce the potential damages of a decision that was made seven years ago by a Board he wasn't even on. If this convinces anyone to give ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
I attempted to talk to a Board Member about the decision to hold the meeting in Hawaii. It went like this: ME: Why did you vote "yes" to meet in Hawaii? BM: Because we have so much important business that cannot wait until spring. ME: It can't be done ...
Table feel vs Cheating
I'm late to the discussion, but I'll confirm that Barry is right. Although the Bulletin editors don't "officially endorse" what their columnists write, they review every article for content, accuracy and clarity. The editors are accomplished players and are very thorough. If I write that "most experts ...
The best bridge book for beginners
I learned bridge from "Five Weeks" and have recommended it to many people. Its only disadvantage is that it teaches 4-card majors, but it's relatively easy to adapt the principles to a 5-card major system. Bridge for Dummies is excellent, too -- as is just about anything by Kantar. His ...
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
There always seems to be a hint -- or sometimes a bludgeon -- of ageism in these discussions. Is the age of other players really that much of a deterrent? When I started playing, I enjoyed "hanging out with a bunch of old people". I had just spent four years with 35 ...
How to deal with a problem at the local club
I'm sorry this happened to you, Amir, and doubly sorry that some questioned the accuracy of your account. I have no idea whether or not you were exaggerating. What I do know is that this woman's feelings are not unusual. She just happened to be louder and more ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Jeff: You don't need to read the whole thread. Here's the gist of it: This is the Crime of the Millennium. We are outraged that we've been duped, stolen from, injured by Horton's sins. He is a corrupt human being who should be fired and boycotted ...
Am I Incorrect - OR .....
The ACBL's technology shortcomings can be partly blamed for many of these problems. In a qualifying event a few years ago, we knew we had qualified but didn't get an email from ACBLDead until the next morning. The board scores had a bottom-to-top error in our favor (our ...
