about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I'm the president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
I can't remember the last time I stayed in an American hotel (other than a destination resort) that included any meal other than breakfast.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
We had a couple of days of choice pairs at our local regional (Reston, VA) last summer. And the earlier games were much more popular than the evening games.
ACBL units getting phished
You mean I should stop pretending to be me?
Meckwell versu Cappelletti
Multi-Landy does that too.
ACBL units getting phished
Our treasurer has gotten a lot of those, purportedly from me.
Lebhar IMP Pairs in Memphis
They can play silver ribbon pairs Friday and Saturday, and then imp pairs on Sunday and Monday. This schedule is much better for those of us who are too young for silver ribbon pairs and aren't playing in the Vanderbilt for one reason or another.
Team League, Round Robin Format
Having a format where each team plays every other team each night avoids the event blowing up (i.e., having to come up with something that nobody is happy with) if one team drops out after a couple of weeks).
Team League, Round Robin Format
We do something like this in our unit, except played in players' homes. The round robin is 2 12-board matches against each team, and there's a playoff after that (our event is bigger than yours, but with 5 teams, I think the playoff format would be 2/3 play ...
