On May 24 and 25, committees from District 6 & 7 met to
develop plans for the transition to running their regional Tournaments. In
summary they agreed to:
Start running the tournaments and assume
financial control at the conclusion of the Charleston Tournament on Jan 5, 2015
Continue to have a smaller MABC organization to
handle issues where it makes economic and practical sense. Items like tables, Bridgemates,
consumables, flyers, etc.
The new MABC would develop a budget and be
funded based on usage by Districts 6 & 7.
Districts would develop capabilities within
their organization to handle the Regional tournament in their respective
Districts after the Jan date.
To that effect, D7 has formed a Tournament Operations
Committee (TOC) to handle our Tournaments. It will be chaired by the District
VP-Dick Myers, and is already working on contracts, schedules, advertising and
procedures for tournaments after January, starting with Callaway Gardens.
We will be having a District wide open meeting on Saturday
morning July 12 at the Columbia regional to share information and solicit input
from the members of the District. Look for details in the daily bulletin.
