Open San Francisco Discussion Thread
Just a FYI, taxi fare from SFO to the hotel is $52/with tip.
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
I think there is a huge gulf between those with 2000 MP and those graduating gold rush with 750. To bridge the gap, the league must either separate the strats to allow only those with 0-1000 to compete or let things stand as is. It is unfair to tell a ...
District 8 Georgia Heth Elected ACBL President
I am sure everyone (but me) knew that District 8 comprises St. Louis, Central and Southern Illinois & Paducah. And District 16 compromises most of Texas and all of Mexico. Thanks for the update Chris.
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
I am loathe to discuss Birmingham in 1967 (4 years after a church bombing killed 4 little girls and 10 years before anyone was indicted for that horrific crime); suffice it to say that if I had been old enough to play then, I would not only have been unwelcome ...
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton
Well done Phil!
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
@Richard, I thought I replied to make it work for you -- however you can. "Attitude" can be hard to judge on a forum (and I am NOT one who can make the emojis). I agree that there is a problem, one not likely be be "fixed" by a rating system.
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
@Richard, ok Boomer? I now have a 7 year wait until I am eligible for the senior events. I hope that younger folks stick with bridge, notwithstanding the decision of the ACBL to move away from providing child care at all NABCs. But really, do you think that the ACBL ...
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
@Shawn, the ACBL is not going to dismantle/replace its Masterpoint system. Like it or not, it is the MP system that keeps butts in the seats. Perhaps I am mistaken, but I cannot fathom a purported ranking system being utilized to replace MP for entries into any tournament events ...
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
@Kevin, because the political reality of the matter is that as soon as someone with "diminished skills" but plenty of MP wins anything in a "limited event" there will be an uproar that will not easily be quashed. The proposed rating system will not a substitute for seeding points -- also ...
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
@Kevin, no performance rating system is going to allow someone with 3000MP to play in the gold rush. Not going to happen. The system only works one way -- to allow the 1500 MP person to play in bracket 1. Talk about unprepared.
