Fast Pairs--Request for Feedback

Anyone out there  play in the NABC+ Fast Pairs in Atlanta? Anyone besides me like to see it turned into a primary event, and/or see the Fast Pairs format applied to other pair games? FYI it was 11 minutes for 2 hands. If you miss by a nanosecond it's an automatic slow play penalty (1/6 of a board) to both pairs, unless both agree that only one pair was at fault (sure!), with no warning given and no appeal. It was great fun.

The most aggravating thing about pair events is all the waiting around. Using this format you could get 32 boards in vs the usual 26 during the "normal" allotted time for a pair event--more bridge, less waiting.

Thoughts?
