A "friendly" game
Why do the two have to be mutually exclusive. Asking everyone to follow the rules isn't some kind of attack on them. There is no reason not to enforce the rules with a smile, in a firm but friendly way, which should also prevent blood pressure problems.
A "friendly" game
I think this illustrates one of the reasons why you should apply / enforce all the rules all the time with all of the players.

Alertable or not redone
While I agree that both SHOULD be alertable, I have never seen the first one alerted, nor a director called when it wasn't, and since a sizeable minority (I would estimate about a third) of the club players I've come across play it that way, I'd say ...

ACBL's Future 2020 & Beyond (San Francisco NABC Report)
I know that attending nationals is very difficult (actually impossible unless within driving distance)for me financially. I've already started saving to pay for my few days in Montreal in July.
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
