about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

In the past few years I've started going to most NABCs.  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.

How do you use 3NT in this auction?
Nonserious slam try, with nothing to cue bid below 3N.

And even if they don't choose to repatriate those points at that time.
First iron points to be offered in San Diego
The closest thing to a fitness program I've ever noticed at an NABC is when it's held at a location with restrooms that are very far from the playing space.
NABC event schedule
I know there are some people who find it easier to get away around Thanksgiving because they're off from work but I think there are more people who find it harder to get away around Thanksgiving because of family gatherings.
NABC event schedule
@Peg, I wasn't suggesting having Thanksgiving in the middle of the tournament. I was suggesting the tournament would be better-attended if it didn't conflict with Thanksgiving at all.
