Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification
Don, I really like your explanations. You bring so much background information to topics and that really helps to anchor the threads. Thank you.
Small Ideas regarding ACBL NAP qualification

Controlling noise at your club
Do we need to pull out the Stop Card before shooting? Does that change in January?
Controlling noise at your club
At one club, the Director turns out the lights to get the player's attention, before the start of play (daytime game). This was very effective and much better than a bell or yelling. I think it might work to quiet the room also. If you try it, let us ...
