BridgeMates Showing Percentages
My experience is whatever the settings are at the start of the session cannot be changed. At least the ones involving displaying results.
Seating Seeding in clubs
Ed, due to dwindling table counts at our club, I am not blaming our club's Board of Directors to do nearly anything to stem the tide. I'm sure this is happening everywhere and I have not directed a section larger than 10 1/2 tables for at least ...

This will sound stupid, but my club's Board of Directors effectively banned a single round arrow switch. I never have seen the exact wording of this "order" (caused by a misconception of players and administrators at our club) and perhaps being in the middle of the session, I could ...
Bumper Movement Foul-up
In case it was not mentioned, this is one area of the laws that is changing with the 2017 laws. Law 15B - Wrong Board Discovered During Auction or Play Period If, after the commencement of the auction period, the Director discovers that a contestant is playing a board not designated ...

Here is an example of an 8-table 9x3 Hesitation Mitchell where Table 1 is the pivot table. Table 2 shares with pivot Table 1. In return for the inconvenience of sharing, I don't arrow switch at Table 2 (although I should). It looks like a Howell where one pair ...
Seating Seeding in clubs
When I create table guide cards for my movements, if there are arrow switches, I have odd numbered tables arrow switch about 1/3 into the session, followed immediately by the even numbered tables. This gives me enough time to do my administrative duties (collecting and counting money, etc.) and ...
Seating Seeding in clubs
With sectional one session one section events of 10 to 15 tables being very common in the ACBL these days with overall awards at stake, never have I seen any effort to play a one-winner movement with two arrow switched rounds. Why do you not see this done? I suspect ...
Seating Seeding in clubs
Be thankful you are able to arrow switch a round. My local club's Board of Directors effectively banned me from arrow switching the last round of a "standard Mitchell" due to complaints of the membership. ("We were in first place and then my opponents bid MY grand slam with ...
Seating Seeding in clubs
The reason we bring up the movement choices is you completely avoid the "who misses whom", because there is such a HUGE imbalance between a 12-table 9x3 Mitchell and a 12-table 12x2 Bye Stand/Relay(Share) or the 12x2 Double Weave Mitchell. We realize there are all sorts of reasons ...
Seating Seeding in clubs
Details of the 12 table Double Weave Mitchell: N-S stationary ODD E-W move up one table every round EVEN E-W move down one table every round EVEN board sets up in 1st half (vice versa in second half) ODD board sets down in 1st half (vice versa in second half ...
