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.

Billy Rosen (1928-2019)
He was also an options trader on the CBOE for many years - a tough competitor there as well!
Billy Rosen (1928-2019)
An era has passed. The last pre-Blue Team American Bermuda Bowl champion (and the youngest in at the time in 1954)
What would you say if you were director?
Law 77 is the Duplicate Scoring Table. A player is always allowed to ask a director what the Law is. NOTICE - this is my personal opinion and NOT that of the ACBL Laws Commission.
So...now is time to consider an electronic Bridge Bulletin & Daily Bulletin?
If only we could convince The Bridge World to at least have an on-line version.

Terrible Tempo
@David - no trees would die if we just used the electronic memo. @Peter - you have a valid point - as an educational tool BW is valuable. @others - I have not found this to be as big a problem as suggested. However, I am willing to put up with the "flood". I ...
