18 Board Movements on BBO
Only if the game exceeds 27 boards. So far our 34 (typo) board games haven't been well attended. Our directors get overtime pay after 1 board. It raises their compensation by a factor of 10 for each board after that. Think of it, $0 times 10 to the power ...
18 Board Movements on BBO
A club can do what it wants regarding number of rounds, boards per round and Mitchell/Howell. Our club usually has between 21 and 34 boards depending on number of pairs and movement (Mitchell/Howell). We have had at least one game with a 9X3 movement. BBO does not set ...

ACBL Reorg Fails by One Vote.
As a member of D18 (and former president of D18), I asked our rep (Claire Jones) to post his reasons on the D18 website (wasumi.org). Maybe he will.
Simultaneous play and claim
Robert: was the law followed? It seems that the players (not the director) made the ruling Paul: you said "They clearly have the right to call the director, make their statements and do whatever the director rules." I agree. Why didn't they call, rather than make their own ruling ...
