No Secrets in Bridge!

We have a number of new players in our club.  Because of this, it is worth repeating the well known adage that there are no secrets in bridge.  Your opponents are entitled to know what systems you play.  You should bring a completed Convention Card to all club games.  It is illegal to use a system not described on the Convention Card.  If you use a non conventional bid, it must be PRE-ALERTED.  For example, if you open a hand with less than 10 high card points, you must pre-alert this non conventional opening before the auction begins.  Openings of less than 8 high card points are completely illegal.  Non conventional overcalls, doubles and no trump bids also have to be alerted.  Included in these obligatory alerts are passes that have a meaning other than pass.  For example, if your partner opens a strong 2C, followed by an overcall by his/her LHO, a pass by you may mean, by partnership agreement, that you have a supporting hand.  This MUST be alerted.

A copy of the ACBL Alert Chart is available under then new menu item: Reference Documents.

Our own Jon Shuster is running for a Unit 128 board position.  We all know Jon is a formidable opponent but we also know that he is knowlegeable and completely honest.  You can vote in person at the Daytona Beach Regional Tournament or by absentee ballot.  An absentee ballot packet will be available, on request, from our directors, starting August 29th..

Please read Unit 128's By-Laws covering absentee balloting in Section 6, part b.  The link for these By-Laws is here.
