Have many, but having our team Kibitzed by 3 players I knew were on the top 500 list, wondering who our opponents must be.

ACBL Ranking
Ruby Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
REACH
REACH IMHO is a valid approach to awarding pigmented points. What would I do to increase participation. 1) Reduce the front in cost to the players. 2) Include players using ACBL club results if provided within 24Hours of the daily session. Yes it is difficult to explain. The player must ...
Handicap scores to increase open game players attendance.
Good comment David. Typically it is my more established players wanting more than a three or four table game, saying we use to handicap why not do it now. Handicapping as ACBL documents are way before masterpoint inflation. They provided handicaps essentially to below and at or little after life ...
Handicap scores to increase open game players attendance.
Handicap instead of strata. ACBL does not allow both in the same club session game. Problem with ACBL stratification is it requires strat to be set at 5 or more pairs for overalls or 3 or more in a field. If you have a small or moderate size game (7 ...
Handicap scores to increase open game players attendance.
Mark, in my checking I found this approach is not uncommon. Thus answer 2 to question, but even stronger. This appears to be a mapping of the handicap to make a game a flighted event. Not what normally comes to mind when thinking of a handicap.
Club GNT Game
The same cost of a Unit Championship with lots more points. A very valid choice for a team game in the GNT time frame, and not using one of the Unit's game 24 yearly sanctions. As long as you are willing to stay within the GNT stratification flight structure ...
Bridgescore+ used for Truscott Senior Swiss Teams
Nick, can you explain where the time savings exists in your method. Players still must report and wait for assignments.
Jackpots in club games - Increase attendance?
We have 3 types of Jackpots here. 1. optional 50 cents per pair; top pair gets jackpot; split on tie. 2. optional 50 cents per pair; guess you game pct. Closest gets the Jackpot. I doubt either 1 or 2 has brought in another player. 3. Summer only; (NAP months ...
World Bridge Day
Non profit, member owned.
World Bridge Day
But the AA served as a catalyst, the events would have been hard to do without an valid purpose higher than a bridge club. And the newspaper articles were AA generated.
World Bridge Day
Don, it may be one way but has some success at our club. First year we held games outside the club at a college and in a restaurant during meal time. Got two new players both from restaurant. Every year during the afternoon game a member of the Alzh. Assoc ...
