Convention Card Reminder -- Enforced at NABCs? Does it matter to you?

Convention Card Reminder

 

  • Each player is required to have a convention card filled out legibly and on the table throughout a session. The convention card must include the first and last name of each member of the partnership, and the cards must be identical.
  • If a director determines that neither player has a substantially completed card, the partnership may play only the Standard American Yellow Card and may use only standard carding. This restriction may be lifted only at the beginning of a subsequent round after convention cards have been properly prepared and approved by the director.
  • Further, the partnership will receive a 1/6-board matchpoint penalty for each board played, commencing with the next round and continuing until the restriction is lifted. In IMP team games, penalties shall be at the discretion of the director.
  • If the director determines the partnership has at least one substantially completed convention card but has not fully complied with ACBL regulations, the director may give warnings or assign such penalties as he deems to be appropriate under the circumstances.
  • The objective of these warnings and penalties is the encouragement of full compliance with ACBL regulations.

 

In my experience, ignored/not enforced at NABCs, doesn't bother me.
In my experience, ignored/not enforced at NABCs, I think some level of enforcement is necessary.
In my experience, partially enforced (at least one card filled out) at NABCs, that's enough.
In my experience, partially enforced (at least one card filled out) at NABCs, two cards should be required.
In my experience, partially enforced (at least one card filled out) at NABCs, penalties should be assessed.
In my experience, fully enforced (except matchpoint/IMP penalties each board) at NABCs, that's too much.
In my experience, fully enforced (except matchpoint/IMP penalties each board) at NABCs, that's enough.
In my experience, fully enforced (except matchpoint/IMP penalties each board) at NABCs, should be fully enforced.
In my experience, fully enforced (forced to use SAYC and matchpoint/IMP penalties each board) at NABCs, that's too much.
In my experience, fully enforced (forced to use SAYC and matchpoint/IMP penalties each board) at NABCs, just as it should be.
