Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I applaud Bob Blanchard for this posting. Highlighting the need for detailed business planning to deal with our current and projected needs due to the current shutdowns is vital. I think we have to use his thoughts as a starting point - and even now, in the midst of this horrific ...
Jay Whipple, the ACBL, BBO, and clubs everywhere have joined together to set up real Black Point Club games online.
Jeff, Kudos to you, Jay Whipple, BBO and ACBL for taking quick and bold steps to try to help our clubs and our players at a time of crisis. Some of the questions and criticisms may have some validity. Nothing is perfect the first time it is attempted. We need ...

Senior COC issues with fewer teams entering
The attendance decline in the Seniors and other events warrants re-examination by our top players regarding the various rules in place that tend to discourage participation of what I would call "second-tier" players. There are a growing number of recently retired decent players who have sufficient funds and sufficient free ...
The time has come: Senior USBC Seeding
It would be ideal if we could come up with a formula that would appropriately integrate three distinct present and past performance criteria. First and foremost, the current performance at the trials in the RR should establish the highest weight. I don't presume to know what the exact formula ...
