My thoughts about how the ACBL should be structured.
Mike - I think I can answer this? STACs are Silver points and REACH is Gold points? Therefore, since Units would be in charge - they get to choose - more money from STACs - or Sectionals? Or maybe the Unit doesn't want either. Up to them?
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Remember when Silver Points came in with a conversion factor? My brother, who was around 200 masterpoints suddenly needed 0.38 Silver to be a Life Master? His response? In the New Life Master 1000 points - there was his name. Played all the way to 1k avoiding all silver games ...

Ray - yes - to further clarify - There is an ENORMOUS "grandfather" - NEW Life Master RULES only apply if you joined the ACBL after January 2010 and a whole bunch of other stuff - looking at it on my iPhone - don't do links well - but the ACBL web site (for once) took ...

Peg - Can't boil water but I now have great OMAHA steak crock pot meals at bargain prices! Omaha too cold for me so would you please forward my Gold Points to Omaha Steak so they can include them in my next order. No extra shipping because gold points weigh ...

REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Ray Y ABA tournaments are a ton of fun - was going to play one day this year but there some odd events that afternoon but none me and my brother - Unmixed Teams, Men's, Women's - (something like that or maybe you couldn't be related?) - and their flier was ...
My thoughts about how the ACBL should be structured.
I think STACs are District wide - for a long while we had Western Conference STACs - 5? Districts scored across. That made no sense to me because I think when the field is so big the top masterpoints diminish a lot! If each District in the Western Conference ran a separate ...
Board of Governors Input on Tournament Reorganization
I have been trying for years to get a 1 day Swiss Pairs at an NABC - The B/C/D pairs would all probably win a match and get some sprinkles. I would then guess the B/C/D pair matchpoint participation would go down. I don't think ACBLscore ...
My thoughts about how the ACBL should be structured.
Len - I have taught many beginners - love seeing the "light bulbs" turn on. I have never asked students after a dozen lessons to fork over $39 to join the ACBL. I think that is just wrong. I would have no problem asking a new student to pay $3.25 a ...
My thoughts about how the ACBL should be structured.
Gary - like Brian said - the first sell is the difficult one. Member dues for his organization are $4.50 per month. Not many quit even though they aren't "playing" so to speak.
