    District 11 ACBL Director Report - A. Beth Reid: Winter 2013                                district11director@acbl.org
    The Phoenix Committee put on a great NABC.  After arriving during a record rainfall, the weather was perfect and I even managed to see a mesa or two and Taliesin West (Frank Lloyd Wright) on this, my first visit to Arizona.  I spent Thanksgiving on a very rocky road in a pink jeep!  Alas, all was not bliss---unfortunately for all of us, some bridge players behaved so poorly---abusing hotel staff and stealing from concession stations--- that the Sheraton staff begged to change shifts to avoid bridge players.  Very disturbing and completely embarrassing.  Behavior anywhere at an NABC is subject to ACBL discipline but it’s sad to think it’s come to that.  I’m sure no one from THIS district would ever behave is such a way but I urge everyone to CALL fellow bridge players on unacceptable behavior!  ....
