Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Ray, I've added making the boards to the list. Note at some clubs nearby they shuffle the cards and enter the hands the first time they are played for the session. We have many concurrent games and our desire is that both the open and limited games play the ...
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Robert, the DBADD is a club policy and its only real advantage is allowing scoring changes plus our games are typically run on one computer and transferred to another. If the DBADD is done on the gamefile on one computer and then transferred, I think the DBAD status is contained ...
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Thanks to all of you for your comments. Of course there is a lot of back story to this post. The club's goal is to have a non-playing director for the games. Our club runs 14 games a week and have about 5-6 people that will direct our games ...
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.

Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Corrected. This would cause a problem. - Was my so/so answer. … might cause a disaster - Was my we are short already and requiring more directing skill would be almost or would be impossible. Thanks for the response.
Director Please! Oops there aren't any.
Yordan, at least in our case if we have a class graduation of new players we tend to create a new game. The game may or may not play in the same session (ACBL terms session - Morning, Afternoon, Evening, Late evening) as other game(s).
Changes for All ACBL Special Games
quarter optional, top score wins most games. Some have you estimate your result closest to estimate wins the jackpot.
Changes for All ACBL Special Games
It also reduces our administration of entries. Now virtually all games at the club are one price. Prior to the change the official entry was $7, but the often played special games normally required the players to kick in another buck. We, the club, provide purchasing entries ahead of time ...
