What is Normal?
Randy, you can say that if you want, but in effect, you are suggesting that play be curtailed. Bt the Laws, that is treated as a claim. I and every other tournament director I've discussed this with agree on this interpretation.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Richard, regarding your last suggestion, that sounds more like punishment for the rest of the room, at least in most cases.
On computer versus hand shuffling

Crowdfunding for New Bridge Organization
Richard, he means that your brother-in-law, who is not an EBU member, signs all of the contracts. Insert appropriate friend or relative for brother-in-law, if necessary.
Open Letter to ACBL Board of Directors -- Housing Bureau, NABC Rooms, Montreal Summer NABC
Still don't see the difference. Might have changed which ACBL members needed to find alternative housing but wouldn't have changed how many ACBL members need to find alternative housing. Maybe a few of those who will/can only stay on site might have benefited from a reminder that ...
