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.

Meetings are held throughout the year and the minutes for all the meetings since 2013 are posted.  Click on the year of the minutes you want to view and then click on its submenu button for the specific Board Minutes you want to view.
