I applaud the ACBL's desired insight into the financial health of Districts and Units that have the heavy burden of much of the health of our game.

3 sounds first like a game-try rather than slammish. In light of this my hand shows wasted values in and completes nothing in with 9xxx.

I like 3 as relay to 3NT in all auctions, to play or for slammish hands like these.

With 94% approval on the 1 opening, not much traction around 4NT opening, although not surprising. Thanks everyone.

4NT was suggested by a well respected local player, but it appears to not have much interest

Switch the with the and I have sympathy for 1 overcall. If this hand is ours I can show bad later in the auction

Thank you for the update. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this NABC BoG meeting. I have secured a proxy.

Good bridge to all attending and best of luck to our District 1 representatives in the three NAP flights.

I did not vote but I'll be rooting for my Canadian friends Kamel, Nic, Zyg and Fred with Nicolas and Judy

I prefer 2 to show majors allowing partner to bid 2 showing equal length in majors. At this VUL I expect partner to be 5-5 but I've seen 4-5-0-4 patterns before. Passing 2 is not an option for me

At our table I opened 2 and partner bid 2NT, what are the merits of bidding 2NT in IMPs with South's hand? The auction then went out of hand with

2 - P - 2NT - 4
5 - 5 - ?

Does this auction not warrant a 6 response?
