A.J. writes-
“The other 2 sectionals were Progressive sectionals, which are almost entirely intra-Unit affairs”

But don't they use sectional sanctions? A Progressive sectional that is useful only to the members in it's locality is useless to the rest of us. It seems that at a time when tournament attendance is down, using sanctions for events that severely minimize out of town attendance should be avoided not encouraged, unless of course the aim is to minimize out of town players.

Pard makes his lead director at whatever level he wishes to play. I am not a fan of delicate probing auctions after we preempt. My pards know what I preempt with.

I play it on over any opening preempt at any level and have done so for many years.

Most club players in my neck of the woods bid slam if the combined total of points has a 3 in the front.

I played in one of the cited Greenville events. Our top bracket had 6 teams. As a Soloway KO, we played a 2 session round robin to eliminate 2 teams. We all later saw a posted result sheet showing only the 4 teams who qualified, but it was a 6 team bracket.

Kudos to whomever hired/chose the food wagons just across from the main entrance. Quite the diverse offerings, reasonably priced, and above all handy.

The late Sid Kilsheimer habitually issued the 2nd and final late play warning to a certain D11 player when the entry was sold. Followup complaints went directly to PP's.

Was this publicized in advance? From the Daily Bulletins:

No cash concessions
There will be no cash concessions at this NABC.
Food and beverage costs would have been quite
high for the players. Many outlets, including the
ABC stores, Wiki Wiki Market and Starbucks, offer
a variety of beverages, sandwiches, salads, etc. at
reasonable prices.

I play with:
A) Students
B) Clients (not the same)
C) Other pros and/or accomplished players
D) Friends

Other pros have looked appalled when they see me playing
with D, but I decided a long time ago that I would do so.
Having said that, yes it has caused a problem when person B
says, “Why not play free with me,you did with person A?”
Luckily I am willing to say,“I like them.”
