Directors issues
Directors have been asked to be proactive in seating the field. They will consult other directors if
present. In the Team game ACBL(tournaments) seats the field by random draw when entering. There
is no ACBL ruling. For 1st round team games it was felt we need to match equal teams.
Bill said sometimes the director demeanor is out of line. Please tell somebody.
