Form to Report an Incident at Bridge Table

If you come upon an issue that involves conduct or ethics and you wish to report it either confidentially or not, please click on this article to pull up a form for you to fill out and submit to Russ Pearly, our Club Recorder.  This is an additional procedure set up to supplement the Zero Tolerance card to help maintain a friendly atmosphere at the bridge table.

Board Information
Board Information

The Board of Directors is elected from our membership and is responsible for all financial and administrative duties.  Specific information about each item below can be obtained by clicking on the Submenu button to the left for the item of your choice.

Board of Directors Meeting Minutes:

Meetings are held throughout the year and the minutes for all the latest meetings are posted.

By-Laws and Constitution:

The By-Laws and Constitution for our club's operation.

Duties of the Board & Directors, and Club Procedures:

A detailed description of the duties and procedures that must be followed by both the Board and the Game Directors.

Appeals Committee:

The Appeals Committee is made up of members from our club who meet the ACBL and our Club's requirements, as stated in the By-Laws, to resolve conflicts or controversies that occur during a game.  The current members are shown to the left.  Keep in mind that the ACBL Game Director can select people at large if there aren't enough people available from the list, provided those people meet the minimum requirements.

Zero Tolerance Policy:

Our Club fully supports the ACBL Zero Tolerance Policy.  The rules are really common sense rules of good behavior that we should all be doing regardless of the activity.  However, since Duplicate Bridge is a competitive game, we all need to be reminded at times that this is a game and we need to treat it as such.

Our ACBL Directors will be enforcing these rules per ACBL policy which means that the first offense will result in a disciplinary penalty of 1/4 board or 3 IMP's.  The second offense will be ejection from the game.
