ACBL Bridge Beat #32: Goodwill
A 1958 Goodwill reminder from committee chairmen, Louise Durham and John Simon:
Gloating over boards you’ve won
Offends good taste – it isn’t done.
Overlook your partner’s crime
Dress him down at dinnertime.
When a stranger is in the game
Introduce yourself by name.
Lose or win, let’s try to be
Less guilty of discourtesy.
