Snafu with ACBL Reporting of Master Points

There was a snafu with the ACBL in reporting the October master points.  Some of you have noticed that your October master points are not showing up on your ACBL personal result page.  The reason is as follows:

On November 2nd, I sent the October’s master points to the ACBL.  The ACBL received the report, but the systems on their end corrupted the Master point file.  I am told that the problem will be fixed as soon as possible and your points will then show up as you expect them.
