Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
They quoted the one-page chart, not the 19-page pamphlet.
Checkback off by passed hand?
Would it be too much effort to give polling options like "1. Yes. "2. No."? However, since you asked three questions: 1. "Checkback off by passed hand?" No, though the GF forcing 2 rebid is now highly invitational. 2 still forces a 2 bid in addition to ...

Is this too big a position?
Why isn't this a bidding poll? As I keep saying, people can comment on bidding polls.
Teaching Lessons During Bridge Games
There was also talk of a room divider. It wasn't implemented at our old club and isn't under consideration in our current club.
