The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

My impression of the ACBL’s position

The ACBL recently has been tweeting up a storm about the New York Time’s completely rational decision to end it’s bridge column. (My local rag has had a poker column in the sports pages for the last several years). The ACBL’s basic strategy is begging the NYT to reverse its decision. But bridge is apparently doing just fine in the rest of the world, but it’s dying here … probably just a coincidence.

We've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas

Perhaps I should be actively working against the ACBL, so that a better organization arises in its place. But I’m lazy.

  1. Are these people without internet access? I assume they complain to the Times by writing letters?

  2. Someone should at least spruce up their wiki page.

    “The administrative headquarters of the ACBL, located on a flood plain in Horn Lake, Mississippi, also houses its Hall of Fame, library and museum.”

    It sounds like it is waiting to be swept away.

    • It nearly was. They were mostly closed for a week due to flooding not long ago.
