Sorry, I was referring to this thread after the verdict and I may have missed it. There have so many comments by others.

As I understand it, the winning teams score of 25 was turned in by someone other than the captain of the team.
I also notice that none of the winning team has chimed in here but thats not a suprise.

I think we should ask the director's of this snafu and the GNT organizer for District 22(John Kissinger) to join “The Well”

Bridge needs an overhaul and some of us or should I say a lot of us are tired of the way where bridge is at right now!! It should be fun and exciting and its been around for over 100 years and we should have learned how to run a tournament and train directors and deal with getting playing sites and accommodations at a reasonable price. Instead were getting a lot of bumbling people running the ACBL who spend money wastefully, have no backbone when it comes to lawsuits. Do I need to go on? Yes, I'm frustrated and you should be too!!
Any suggestions? Im sure no one in Horn Lake will listen but then again they don't care about us, so why should we care about them? Just saying . . .

I hope that we get to see the result of the “improper player behavior” in this match.

So there were two copies originally. As I stated previously above in this thread one of the copies should have been taped to the directors desk or more copies could have been brought or printed at the site. This is not rocket science!! It's very possible a player took one or both of the CoC's. In any case there were no copies after the original 2 were taken. CoC's were asked for more than once but somebody didn't listen!

I wouldn't wish this problem on anyone. It's a no win situation. I'm sure they will come up with what they think is a fair solution even though they may have personal feelings in this matter.

Peg: Is it possible that the other team heard the explanation of the Director from Flight B?

This was from Dustin Stout earlier in this thred.
I don't know why there was confusion in the B flight. The format was explained ahead of time. I don't think it was the best format, but the director did explain the conditions of contest at least in our bracket.

Bridge is a timed event! not opening for more than 1 or 2 minutes after being reminded that it is the bidders opening call and that gives unauthorized information to partner. Obviously it influenced partner to bid. If he had opened in a normal tempo I very much doubt that partner would have bid. I would think that I would go out of my way NOT to do anything but pass as responder with that particular hand. that's just my opinion. There seem to be a number of I didn't hear or I forgot or didn't see in this match. No one is accusing your team of anything other than taking unusual action. Don't get your panties in a twist.
This was such a poorly run event that someone needs to step in and restore some kind of equity for all concerned.

Susan Kissinger:
Maybe just maybe you should have taped one of the copies to the desk of the director! and here's a thought: brought a few more copies with you? or printed out a few copies at the site?
