about me
Retired from missile defense industry. I played a lot from 1975-1987, then took about 15 years off from bridge when raising kids and coaching baseball, basketball, softball, and soccer. Then, I played 1-2 Nationals and little else for another 10 years until retiring. Since then, I've had a chance to play a lot more. Currently serve as VP, Recorder, and BOG (1st Alternate to the BOD) for D10.

What do you expect?
If you're not playing a strong , how can it be "to play"? Shouldn't it just be descriptive?

I would think that if it is (purportedly) natural, it would be governed by the rules for opening NTs. But I'm not a rules expert.

I haven't read those. Will check them out. Thanks.

The Cincinnati NABC in 2000 was excellently organized, with great hospitality. The playing site was downtown with a (large) number of excellent restaurants of varying prices. I'll take "The Nati" again, anytime.

I agree with you, Mark. But the contract was with the hotel. I don't know if another venue could have been found that would have been better (surely, it would need to be outside of Disney World). But I'd much rather go to Reno than the Swan & Dolphin ...

I now have. :)

I'm staying at the host hotel, but alas, am using Hilton Honors points. I doubt if the ACBL will get credit for me.

Yes and yes.

In ACBL's defense, the Orlando (one of the worst NABC venues in recent memory) contract was for two NABCs: 2016 and 2022(?). They paid a (relatively) small fee to get out of the latter. It has been rescheduled for Reno, as I understand.
