National Directors Report Fall 2021

On January 1, 2022, Tim White officially became Regional Director for ACBL Region 13, which comprises Districts 18 and 19.

He sends us a very comprehensive report from the National Board Meeting in Austin which you can download as a pdf here

Two items may be of particular interest to clubs and players:

1) Improvements in information technology, including:

  • Completing the tournament event pre-registration system.
  • Moving Trax application to cloud-based application.
  • Moving ACBLScore to a web-based application.

2) A revamped convention card, debuting mid 2022 and featuring these changes:

  • Seldom-used conventions have been removed and commonly-used conventions added.
  • Recent changes in alerts and announcements are reflected.
  • The One Club and One Diamond open bid sections have been expanded, providing more room to address different minor suit openings.
  • The right side of the card has been reorganized, with bids shown in ascending order of strain

The new card can be downloaded here.

    I like the proposed new convention card. 2 suggestions for same & a question..
    follow the Australian lead re colors of card symbols. diamonds = orange or gold, clubs = blue or green. i.e. not black & red for the minors.

    2 sets of “name” for team games where a player wishes to know who all the opponents are.

    is there a difference other than available space between Art F & Conv?

    regards, a capital challenged
