Copy to my cards View/Print
No one should ever EXPECT a team to withdraw -- particularly a team of aspiring players looking to get experience. I have heard that some teams have done so, but have not experienced it. When my team plays one of the top tier teams (always as a 4 bagger) we tell ...
ACBL Scheduling: Adjusting Spring NABC Schedule to avoid excluding certain genders/ages
The problem with the Spring NABC is that it seems to have almost gone out of its way to make it as difficult as possible for working-age folks to maximize leave AND the ability to play in NABC games. Like Linda, most of my friends are Plat eligible, but we ...
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
Betty, it's not quite that simple. 1) A bridge tournament, even a nationals,is not quite like a cruise or special vacation.There will be another one in 3 months (tho with different events). 2) I think many people want to and plan to attend an NABC, but if ...
ACBL Nationals Start times
Yehudit, thanks for the survey. It was well done. I think, however, that you missed one key question. Do you work full time? possibly also are you self employed or do you depend on allocated vacation.
ACBL Nationals Start times
I'm also still a working "stiff". I can go to a full 10 day Nationals 2 to 3 times per year BECAUSE I can work for a couple of hours most mornings and check in with my office in between sessions if necessary. With that available I can always ...
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
For Positive Suggestions: 1. I think a BIG one is that there MUST be a managed waitlist moving forward. What do they pay ONPeak the big bucks for? That just common sense and good for repeat business. If you just missed getting a room or end up in the secondary ...
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
It's not yet clear whether San Diego is a really attractive location and more people than the last few fall NABCs are planning to go, or if rooms were just really constrained. It used to be that you could get a room at the host WHILE YOU WERE ATTENDING ...
BOG Motions in Orlando - Linda Trent
Those wondering why there is a proposal for using new cards at the beginning of an NABC must not have played the team games the last weekend of the recent DC Nationals. At least a plurality of the boards held cards that were in bad shape, a significant number unplayable ...
Starting Times and Playing Schedules
My concern with "democratizing" the process is that we need to be extremely careful not to make it close to impossible for our youngest active members to participate effectively. If we make it more difficult/expensive/stressful for the 20 and 30 somethings to play (or think their voices matter ...
Starting Times and Playing Schedules
Not at all! If gametime is 10 am, rather than being able to get up at 8 or 8:30 (5 - 5:30 body time) and eat/workout/prepare before the 10 am start, I would need to get up earlier or squeeze something in before 10. When the session ...
