    for review and comment. The ACBL Competition & Conventions Committee has proposed a new convention card that better reflects the new ACBL Convention charts.  The big changes are:
    ● Separate areas for each of 1♣ and 1
    . (Those who play better minor don't need to fill out the minor sections twice, there is a check box for 'same as over 1♣)
    ● Greatly expanded defensive carding methods section.  
    ● Limit the use of names for conventions where possible.  
    ● More room for style on preempts, and what is to be expected from a balanced opening.
    ● The new alert procedures have also been incorporated with the same color coding:
    Red=Alert, Blue=Announce What do you think?
