Ripped Off
Julian, the impression you have garnered on Bridge Winners about the ACBL is skewed in my opinion. I truly doubt the average ACBL member is nearly as vehemently opposed to the ACBL governing bodies as the typical BW poster is. You stated you have been active in bridge governance for ...
Upcoming, Challenging NABC's?
Coming from the west coast, flying into Providence required 3 legs on many flights and some others were red-eyes. I opted to fly into Boston non-stop on a red-eye and take the train to Providence. But the train schedule was inconvenient, so I took a bus and got in earlier ...
Lead out of turn accepted and then what
The director still has to determine if the mistake was intentional or not. If intentional, then the director should issue a PP, which may be as simple as a warning.

Ripped Off
Yes, a regional tournament manager/chair is usually the one responsible for taking the cash receipts for the day and getting them deposited in a bank account. This can be unsettling to a person carrying around that much cash, especially at night.
Question about incorrect claims.
Well that is not what you said before. Did anyone verify that a change of your score could affect the standings in any way?
Question about incorrect claims.
Ed, I would think that in general any moot question of law does not warrant an effort to resolve it. I'll leave it to Ray or any other lawyer to support or refute that. But you are right that the director should definitely explain why he declined a hearing.
