So a 50-year-old decides to go back to college, they get a junior discount?

Not that it would be a big deal -- I can't imagine there would be more than 1 or 2 such people in the entire ACBL at a time, and how many of them would be going to NABCs with or without the discount?

I think that if you're *full-time* student, it shouldn't really matter. A 50-year-old going back to school to finally finish that B.Sc. now that he's retired? Go for it! We can afford $100, $200/year to support him.

Taking one night class? No, I don't think so.

But there's a reason I avoid bridge politics, and bridge administration.

I would be very much in favor of providing free play for all members who are 55 years old.

However, after my birthday next Wednesday, I would change that to free play for all members who are 56 years old.
