Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
REACh has worked for us. We saw a definite increase in tables. We like the fact that players can opt in to pay for it rather than charging the clubs. Althoug, the ACBL should eliminate the $20 charge for clubs. Even though it is de minimus, it is still an ...
questions for club owners
1. Unit 188 - worse less useless, actually detrimental. They mark up STACs and host events that put us out of business those days. 2. $50 but that is New York. 3. Both free and pay advertising. 4. We run every single special game we can. We find that none of ...
BoG Committees
This thread is entitled BoG committees. Are there BoG Committees? Is so, what are they?
Will This Forum Become More Than an Exercise in Herding Squirrels?
Kevin. What you suggest has a much higher likelihood of happening than I would have thought just a few years ago and we will see if it comes to fruition, but before it can the rant must happen and then real actionable requests must be made of the ACBL. Then ...

We have had success with LBIAD. We have advertised through Groupon and others and even offered it alongside The Longest Day to get it in local papers for free as a community event. We run it just prior to the start of our beginner classes so that players who like ...
Target group >3?
It would be nice if the ACBL shared this software with club owners. In all honesty, we have not been good at tracking players and contacting the ones who no longer play. Improved retention would certainly help.
Target group >3?
Bahar was also looking at our target group. We find that fewer than ten percent of people who enter a beginner class ever play duplicate. What is it about that 10% and how do we attract them. We have to begin by identifying them. They think logically. They are willing ...
Europe Gets Marketing
Yes. I have seen these before. These low cost production efforts really create a buzz about the game. North America should use them and should have live coverage of matches on Twitch, YouTube or other low cost venues.
