about me

I am the ACBL National Recorder. I was on the NAC (appeals committee) from 1984 until its demise. I joined the ACBL Laws Commission in 2006. I was added to the ACBL Ethical Oversight in 2010. I am particularly proud (and mystified) about being appointed to the ACBL Goodwill committee. My hobbies include my dogs, singing, wine, and watching baseball and basketball. Former member District 17 Board and former 1st Alternate Director D17.

Is bridge dying? Maybe, maybe not.
I certainly agree that the best Face-to-Face growth opportunities are in large and mid-size population areas. Given that much of our recruitment deals with older folks (witness the sea change over 20 years from the large club games being in the evenings) and older folks are generally less fond of ...

No - nothing special. I stayed at the NABC, and I checked out. My reservation was through the ACBL.
