AJ Stephani Resigns from the ACBL Board of Directors
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have resigned from the ACBL Board of Directors, effective today. I wanted to provide all of you with at least a partial explanation for my actions, for several reasons:
* I abhor the generic "personal and family reasons" explanation, especially when it's clear the truth lies elsewhere;
* I wanted to at least try to squash shotgun speculation about my personal motivations, particularly when the resignation occurs before my new 4-year term has even begun;
* Most of all, the ACBL membership deserves better – our organization exists for you, to preserve your enjoyment of bridge, and to act as the steward of our great game in North America to ensure it survives to live another day. You are owed an explanation.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE D11 NORTH AMERICAN PAIRS FINALISTS!
Finalists qualify for the North American Pairs Championships to be held in New Orleans Louisiana in March 2023.
Stipends for 1st and 2nd place are paid by the ACBL at the venue. Stipends for 3rd and 4th are paid by Distirct 11 on proof of participation in the event. People who qualify must confirm their intent to play in New Orleans with the ACBL. If finalist pairs choose not to play, the next pair in the order of finish will be invited in their place.
Louisville NABC Fundraising - The District 11 Board voted unanimously to approve the following fundraising to support the work of the 2024 Louisville NABC Committee:
1) Beginning October 1, 2022 through March 1, 2024, all Regional and Sectional tournaments (but not Sectional Tournaments at Clubs - STaCs) will be assessed a $1 per person surcharge. This surcharge will be forwarded to the 2024 Lousiville NABC Committee Treasurer (TBA). This includes NLM and progressive tournaments.
2) Clubs wishing to offer special fundraising games may do so during the following weeks:
April 23 - April 29, 2023
In normal times, fundraising starts 3 years in advance of the NABC. We are starting 18 months late because of the covid pandemic. Please participate fully and play often - we want the Committee to have the funds it needs to provide the welcome everyone should experience at an NABC tournament held in District 11.
How Well Do You Know Bridge Ethics and Proprieties?
Here is a 5 minute Norwegian film (english Subtitles) that will test your sense of proper behavior at the bridge table. How many mistakes can you count? Watch the video and check your count against this LIST. Thanks to the Norwegian Bridge Federation for the video, and Sofie SjøDal for posting this to Bridge winners at: The Sheriff Is Not Always Ethical
NEW ACBL CONVENTION CARD
The ACBL will begin production of the new forms when the current inventory runs out. There will be a transition period from the old card to the new one. The formal use of the card in tournaments will take place this year, after multiple Bulletin articles to help explain the changes and the proper way to fill out the card. This version does not include a score sheet, only the front page. Here is a .pdf ELECTRONIC FORM you can fill out then print or save and share electronically with your partner. You have to manually fill in your lead agreements.
