Did REACH Discriminate Against ACBL Members?
Steve - you answered question 1 as yes. Pilot programs are fine and they ran some small pilots which is fine. The 11 District event is NOT a Pilot program according to law!! The 11 District trial is AGAINST ASSOCIATION law. CA clubs have a legitimate beef. This thread is not ...
Did REACH Discriminate Against ACBL Members?
Discrimination and access law take many forms. Most people think of discrimination and access as a people issue. Discrimination also includes products and services. Just as we have an obgligation to include all types of people the ACBL has an obligation to provide every service to everyone if it is ...

Claim ruling poll
Debbie - I know its a chore, but read the Claim and Concession (again, I am not home) I think around Law 63 or 64. I think the law covers your situation. For level of player involved, this guy didn’t eve mention 4-0 diamonds, so there’s my level of ...
Claim ruling poll
This particular claim (I didn’t say all claims) reminds me of a claim without mentioning an outstanding trump. Your guy would lose if that were the case - he doesn’t get to say “of course I would have drawn the trump.” ,Any unblocking play when playing against unfamiliar opponents ...
ACBL Query into District Finances.
We’re digging out of a big hole and lots of folks are still upset about lots of things. Sigh!
