Small Sectional Swiss Team Event
I was the Chair of the Sectional in question. Last year (when I was not the Chair), 12 teams showed up - 5 for A/X, 7 for BCD. The Director and the then-Chair combined the field into one event. Sounds reasonable, but the BCD players complained bitterly about having to ...
