For Club Managers
I only run one stac a year for my players. The open players don't care and they get fewer points than they do for a charity game. The Open STaC game does not credit for the lower level games.
Jeff, This sounds like a great idea. A couple of questions. Is there any teaching materials on Canasta? How many lessons, etc? Do you need to buy any materials? I used to play hand and foot. A multi-deck shuffler was used, I think.
Yes using boosted posts in Facebook.
I tried advertising a beginner class recently and had no success. Will try again in september
World-wide Pairs popularity
Not only are there no extra awards, unless you are one of the very few high scorers, the awards for a large club are actually smaller. Typically my open game gets credit for the 20 to 25 tables of limited games. The acbl now has these special games that do ...

1NT p 2NT showing diamonds

Clearly showing longer clubs is more important if responder has weak minors. Showing superacceptance ...
K98x vs AQ7x
We can only pick up the 5-0 break by cashing the king. You won't pick up JTxx -x because you can't finesse on the second round. It is clear to lead low to the Ace.
Yesterday, I had 12 1/2 tables. The players would rather have a 3 board sit out instead of a 2 board movement. I tried the 12 table 8 round with a East/West rover and North/South sitout at the party table. Most confusing movement I have ever run ...
