Religious Restrictions and our Conditions of Contest
Marty - no pun intended, but can you help me understand how use of bidding boxes is kosher, but use of pen/pencil is not? I wondered about this during the 2019 USBCs and then again during the recent Collegiate event in Sodom Nevada
Religious Restrictions and our Conditions of Contest
I like Adam's idea that we enlist some of the players to confer with their religious leader(s) to see if there is an approach that we heathens cannot imagine. Perhaps their ability to get a dispensation just postpones a secular solution - but it couldn't hoit...i mean ...
Religious Restrictions and our Conditions of Contest

System Filing for Late-Added Pairs
the final paragraph is thought-provoking. however, isn't the situation of a potential pair looking for a team less likely than a team adding a late pair/player? the posted deadline for submission of SSF/CC is much more likely to be a factor in that latter case.
System Filing for Late-Added Pairs
as a non-player who believes in full disclosure, i am curious as to how the "early entry date"* a) is bad for the players b) is a convenience "minimally, at that" for the organizer rather than a necessary time span for organizers, participants and even viewers * are you referring to ...
