To: For the Players

Received: May 4, 2015

I am inquiring regarding the latest news concerning the Orlando Bridge Club. The matter in which the board has represented themselves has both surprised and disgusted me. It appears that it is their belief that the players should have absolutely no part in the operation of the club. This is a display of arrogance. Their behavior has been both appalling and childish. It was my hope that more transparency would have occurred. I guess I should not be surprised how those in power react. Instead of accepting change they become more entrenched in their views. This all could have been avoided with good faith negotiation. Sad state of affairs for the club. It is a problem that should have been easily solved.
