Club Discipline
Jeff, unfortunately the situation isn't as simple as that. The ACBL has elected, perhaps for practicality, to designate the club director as virtually the sole disciplinary authority for club games unless it's a unit-sponsored club or unless the allegations involve cheating or similar ethical breaches. I quoted the ...
Is filing a recorder form warranted.
It's not clear from what I've read whether this occurred in a tournament or a club game. That could make a difference in terms of which recorder is involved and what authority they have. If you're unsure what process follows a player memo, see [url=http://web2 ...

My best understanding, explained [url=https://bridgewinners.com/article ...
Evening Games
I should add one observation regarding the decline in our club's evening games. One nearby club has developed a healthy following for a competing evening game. I'm not saying it's the complete explanation for their success, but more than one person has commented on the great snacks ...

Jeff, necessity may be the mother of invention, but I'm impressed by your ingenuity in filling empty seats at your club and your willing to share your ideas.
Is filing a recorder form warranted.
I started to recite the standard "slow always shows extras" line [url=https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/is-filing-a-recorder-form-warranted/?cj=669773#c669773]above[/url] in response to one of Phillip's initial questions, but then it occurred to me that E could field W's tempo break better by bidding an ...
