"My dear Kepler, I wish that we might laugh at the remarkable stupidity of the common herd. What do you have to say about the principal philosophers of this academy who are filled with the stubbornness of an asp and do not want to look at either the planets, the moon or the telescope, even though I have freely and deliberately offered them the opportunity a thousand times? Truly, just as the asp stops its ears, so do these philosophers shut their eyes to the light of truth."

ACBL Scheduling.
Also , as some one who has played in the GNTs 5x in 10 years I cnnot understand that when I lose my GNT KO on the first Friday I have nothing to play in for 2 days. At least there shouldbe a dropin to the LM pairs.
ACBL Scheduling.
Having a 2 day event after the first day of a 3 day event makes sense. Having a 2 day event (IMP pairs) the same day as the 3 day event(Pt pairs)does not. The BOD spent an unusual amount of time adjusting mp as they have with schedules ...

Only 4 of those are open sectionals , same as 10 years ago and 2003
Director ruling
While 6H is not unreasonable and I can see S persuading a committee allowing it makes a mockery of those of us that try to bid in tempo. Really, having laws and the ability to make war is what separates us from the animals!
Partner Confused
Many players like to play many "advanced" methods. That is fine with proper alerts and prealerts but when a pair gets a high volume wrong it is quite disorientating to the field. Especially at club games." No legal reason to adjust" is a poor policy. It really damages the developing ...
