The ACBL: It's a Great Deal
$3 is coffee at Starbucks, a gallon of gas in some places, a lot less than a movie ticket-and what we believe is a fair increase in ACBL membership dues for 2005 in order to keep up with expenses that increase from year to year. This is the first dues increase since Jan. 1, 2001. We value all of our members and know that you value the ACBL's monthly Bridge Bulletin magazine and other benefits. We also are pleased to report that there are no proposed increases in table sanction fees in 2005, keeping down the cost of play in clubs and tournaments. New members will want to join before Jan. 1, 2005, when the first-year rate increases from $24 to $26.
