On the road to bridge: Whist
In Audrey Grant's Bridge Basics 1 you play a few hands of whist before advancing to Auction Bridge. It manages to include all of the things you mention: long suits, sequences, and so on.
Everything You Need to Start Play Bridge (???) -(Believe me I Know ) (NOT!!!!!!!) - New York Magazine
If people are buying bridge tables, bidding boxes, cards, and books, I'm tickled pink. Like the author said, the game "sucks you in."
Advice for new club owners?
Mike, it's true that you can register a domain name, and when someone types it in (or uses it as a link) you can redirect to bridgewebs. But the location that appears in the browser, the bookmark that's saved, and the link that appears in a Google search ...

Image, the business of bridge, the ACBL, and pride.
"I am not sure that the younger generation is as motivated by wealth as the bridge generation is/was." Yes, I've been thinking about leveraging that somehow. They say that the current generations are more interested in having experiences than acquiring things. What better experience is there than developing ...
