ACBL Nationals Start times
@Bob as much as you like playing against juniors, it may not be enough to gain you admission to Junior events. @Peg I was being half serious, half joking. Actually I feel very strongly that the top competitive events (in this case ACBL+ events) should take place at times, when ...
