    April 2022 Board of Directors Report
    AJ StephaniGreetings! It was terrific to see old friends (and meet new ones!) when I played with my son Isaac at the Dayton sectional last month.

    How Well Do You Know Bridge Ethics and Proprieties?
    Here is a 5 minute Norwegian film (english Subtitles) that will test your sense of proper behavior at the bridge table. How many mistakes can you count? Watch the video and check your count against this LIST. Thanks to the Norwegian Bridge Federation for the video, and Sofie SjøDal for posting this to Bridge winners at:

    The ACBL will begin production of the new forms when the current inventory runs out.  There will be a transition period from the old card to the new one. The formal use of the card in tournaments will take place this year, after multiple Bulletin articles to help explain the changes and the proper way to fill out the card. This version does not include a score sheet, only the front page. Here is a .pdf ELECTRONIC FORM you can fill out then print or save and share electronically with your partner.  You have to manually fill in your lead agreements.
