September 5, 2021 Letter to District 11
This newsletter is longer than usual – there’s a lot going on in our bridge lives and the ACBL, and we’re facing major challenges in our clubs and tournaments. I’ll also provide news from the ACBL Board of Directors and weigh in on how we’re trying to imagine solutions to these challenges. I’ll focus on decisions that matter most to our players, but if you’re not interested in a particular item, feel free to skip to the next one. I also want to maintain an approach that balances the informational content (what did the Board decide?) with opinion (why did I vote a certain way?).
D11 NAP Finals Results
Congratulations to these D11 Finalists:
DRAFT - NEW ACBL CONVENTION CARD - for review and comment
The Competition & Conventions Committee has proposed a new convention card that better reflects the new ACBL Convention charts. Big changes are:
● Separate areas for each of 1♣ and 1♦. (Those who play better minor don't need to fill out the minor sections twice, there is a check box for 'same as over 1♣).
● Greatly expanded defensive carding methods section.
● Limit the use of names for conventions where possible.
● More room for style on preempts, and what is to be expected from a balanced opening.
● The new alert procedures have also been incorporated with the same color coding: Red=Alert, Blue=Announce
