In the Well: Russ Jones
The 34 pages of the meeting minutes from Honolulu show that the vast majority of the Board’s time was spent on masterpoint changes, club fees, NABC gifts, bylaws language and other technicalities and managerial chores. The Board spent little if any time on the issues that are critical to ...
Memphis hotels
Couple of notes: The Peabody adds a $13/night "resort fee" to the above price, payable at the hotel. If you're a new Hotwire customer, use the code 30NCFEB2019 at checkout for $30 off your booking.
Confused old man
I can relate to your problem and I have a lot of sympathy for the position you're in, but is it really so bad that it "ruins" the game for everyone? I've dealt with several players like Harry during the decades I've been running club games. They ...

A Request from Ms Manners
Robb -- That was you, and it was my favorite response in that long, acrimonious thread. I laughed out loud again when I found it in the archives.
A Request from Ms Manners
Thanks for posting this Peg. It reminded me of my attempt, almost 25 years ago, to request some civility in the old Usenet newsgroup rec.games.bridge. Although most responses to my plea were positive, a surprising number of grouches saw it as another opportunity to hurl personal insults. I ...
A Request from Ms Manners
Some are non-native English speakers . . . and some are men. In general, women are better at being diplomatic and courteous in written communication. Men tend to be more "economical" in expressing themselves -- they blurt out their opinions without adding the extra words that might soften a criticism. I concede that you ...
