I haven't seen one as blatant as this in a long time.

West thought for significant amount of time before passing his aceless 12-count. 1NT was 15-17. What can South do over 2? North can reopen with a double but should never have been in this situation. Should West have been expected to raise clubs or make some other bid?

Now that the recorder system is going away, what does one do with hands like this? Tell the club director? Show the diagram to the opponents and gently explain what UI is? They're weak players but nice people as best I can tell.
