DRAFT - NEW ACBL CONVENTION CARD
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?
