Answering Sabine's Question
I am against calculators until at least Jr High. Kids don’t learn a “feel” for numbers. They can be off 3 decimal places and have no clue. Some of the younger cashiers have problems making change - I bought a $20 item and gave the cashier a $50 - I asked ...
New ACBL Convention Charts But Old Alert Chart
There are 2 sub-committees. The Convention Card is being redesigned and the Alert Procedure is `being updated.
@Zia You gave me your badge in Philly and I have gathered about 5 pages of signatures from Regionals and club players. When the desk clerk at my hotel asked what the badge was and I explained he signed the petition and said NO TO . . .

Traveler View - negative good will for the club?
I feel bad at the club (just the % is shown) for the players who think they have high scores the first 4 rounds or so and then can’t figure out at the end of the day why their game is in the 40’s%.
Part of the problem is with so many bridge players at the host hotel, most of us have elite status. I think OnPeak should have our numbers to send to he hotel so those with highest level get proper customer service. We never get a king bed when we come ...
Long Ago and Far Away
I made a motion in a BOG meeting that we should have a “Director Memo” like the player memo system for lots of reasons many of them positive. I think 3 people at the meeting supported my motion. I made the motion within the last year.
