World championships individual
He could also create his own set of standards e.g. either won a Spingold/Vanderbilt/Reisinger, a world championship, or whatever other prestigious thing would make the truly world class players eligible and eliminate scrubs like me

You kids get off my lawn!!!
Gatlinburg regional (4/20-26/2020) is NOT cancelled
Bud: Personally, I think a statement that said something to the effect of "the tournament is not currently canceled, but that is subject to change and we will reevaluate closer to the date" would be much better. Certainly I hope the situation is better by the end of April and ...

I view being able to bid in tempo as a bridge skill and I do not see how being bad at some part of bridge can be considered unethical. Playing with me, partner will realize that giving UI usually decreases our EV on a hand and (hopefully) will get better ...
What is a logical alternative anyway?
It's not unethical to not be able to bid in tempo (unless you're doing it on purpose)
