Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ACBL Board of Governors Teacher and Club Manager Committee Check out this picture. This is what happens when you advertise your card game. It is not that younger people aren’t playing cards. They just aren’t playing bridge because our sponsoring organization refuses to to invest in attracting new ...
ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
Wow. That should be the model for all units and districts.
ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
You are certainly correct but how do you change the BOD? They are not going to voluntarily relinquish power. How do you propose to shake things up?
ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment

ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
I was my unit President. So, I know the mechanics of unit finances. The units get the 11% for the members in their unit. The ACBL doesn’t give units other money but they give units the ability to make money by marking up the price that is charged to ...
ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
People are losing the forest for the trees. Chris’ original point was that the current system is arbitrary and unfair. Can we agree that giving the rebate to units and districts simply for having that member in their geographical jurisdiction is totally arbitrary and unfair? Can we also agree that ...
Attracting New Bridge Players - What Works and What Doesn't?
That’s awesome. Did the ACBL pay for that or was it a Bridge playing writer?
