The people I grew up first playing against, in the late 1970s, most of them fun and pleasant…and almost all gone. :(

I agree with the director's ruling with the addendum that I'd assess a procedural penalty against N/S. They were warned to disclosed their style and deliberately didn't do it.

Last I checked all players were responsible for knowing the CoC of the event they enter. They should be stripped of their title.

Anyone aware of anything that would be open for dinner Thanksgiving day late afternoon/early evening (in time to make the evening session) close to the hotel?

I don't think anyone would say Multi must be allowed at ALL levels–I certainly wouldn't. But I do think it should be allowed in 2-board segments under Open or Open+

How do you play bridge with your head stuck that far in the sand?

Any policy where 1NT-2M is alertable, where 2M is natural and non-forcing, can be thrown in the garbage. Thanks. That's ridiculous.
