The Common Game

Starting Monday, June 30, we will be participating in The Common Game. This means we will play the same hands as many players across the country. On The Common Game website, you will be able to see your scores matchpointed across all clubs that played the same boards as well as view hand analysis from various experts on many of the boards played. Obviously some changes in the way results are viewed must come with this. We will still post results on acbl.org where they have been for awhile (although the hand records there will not show the double dummy analysis of what each side can make), but here are some new links you will want to save and frequent.

http://thecommongame.com/ is the main page for the Common Game. You can enter your ACBL number in the top right and see your personal results. You can also browse the archives to see old hand records/analysis.

http://thecommongame.com/clubwebhost/130252/ has the results from the games at MDBC, with hand records and double dummy analysis, and, if available, expert analysis.

Regional Recap

The first Macon Middle Georgia regional was a success. Although attendance was only 1507 tables, everyone was pleased with the volunteer work and playing area except for the Monster Trucks next door in the Centreplex arena. The following is from the tournament chair, Len Perkins:

It's over! We surpassed 1500 tables and got numerous compliments from our guests.What went wrong was 99% beyond our control:e.g. loud ,smelly trucks and a hotel that thought bridge players (against my stern warnings) would pay $13 for lunch and Marriott prices for anything else.

What went right falls entirely on the usual volunteer spirit of this club.There were too many of you who spent time and effort to name in a short note so I will list the folks who were responsible for various tournament segments:

Emory Whitaker was both co-chair and instigator of the entire event.In addition he handled the prize room flawlessly and was with me numerous times as we groped our way through negotiations and other hurdles.

Jan Lee and Sheila Paul dealt with registration daily.The hours they and their group put in were,to say the least,commendable.

Andre Asbury handled both our bulletin and the caddies.I know he put in more hours effort on site than anyone.His efforts were special.

Tom Wight coordinated our efforts with Intown Macon and the C&V resulting in reduced trolley prices and still more compliments.

Sally Wilfong was responsible for hosptality and garnered numerous kudos for us on our evening spreads.

The directors as well as MABC heads spoke highly of our efforts.Therefore with the permission of the best bridge club in the USA.we will pursue a repeat in 2015.

Gratefully,
Len
