ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Three sets of Bridge magazines for sale, each from issue 1 onward
I would think the FPAB would be more appropriate, since they are responsible for the Morehead Library. Peg Kaplan is one of the trustees, as is Bob Hamman.
What ACBL Arbitration Agreement?
There is a general "Board Member Agreement", but it's vague pap, talking about stuff like "I will attend the board meetings, committee meetings and special events" "Be thoroughly familiar with the agenda and all prepared material prior to the Board meeting" and that ilk. It has no specific legal ...

Who's the Offender?
Quick question to the laws mavens: Reading the first paragraph, it seems that it could also apply to the player who only had 12 cards - since both have an "incorrect hand".
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
Thank you, Len. I've found over the years that if one can go back to figure out WHY things are the way they are and what the rationale was to make it that way, it becomes clearer and easier to figure out how to go forward. Always happy to ...
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
