Reevaluating GLM-Eligible Events
I should have added those originally, although the GNT Championship flight is pretty top-heavy as opposed to the NAP.
Reevaluating GLM-Eligible Events
I agree that it should be subjective and the ACBL can look at the past decade to see what they think qualifies. As for team trials, the major ones all count for GLM status.
Reevaluating GLM-Eligible Events

Reevaluating GLM-Eligible Events

Using Twitch as a Platform for Bridge
That actually sounds really cool. Thanks for the idea! I'm not really artsy but would love to integrate these if possible.
