Mobile phones can be distracting and annoying.  We require them to be switched off or set it to silent before play commences. 

Convention Cards

When playing Duplicate you and your partner should have convention cards with you and make them available to your opponents.  This helps to avoid disputes and misunderstandings.  If called upon for a ruling, the director may be obliged to rule against you if your system is in doubt.

In the absence of a convention card you will be expected to use simple systems.
