    New ACBL ConventionCardNEW ACBL CONVENTION CARD Printable Blank Version
    This is the new ACBL CONVENTION CARD. The ACBL Board of Directors approved the new Convention Card during its Austin meetings.  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 new card will be the official one sometime in the middle of 2022. During that time, either card will be acceptable. The formal use of the card in tournaments will take place sometime next 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. PRINTABLE VERSION
