I don't think this is a horrible idea but the execution is not way I would go.
In Canada there is strong talk that the CBF should go on it owns leave acbl.
We would have huge advantage as there is already clubs and tournaments that could convert easily.
In the 80s when this was last discussed it eeas costs that prevented this but with computers now the need for staff is smaller and it seems doable.
And as for motivation all clubs in Canada and tournaments have a common goal get rid of exchange rate!

Thank you Danny for explanation and a the hard work you and others put into it.
I do believe when Chris made this bid at the table the 10 card rule never entered his mind whether he knew or not he simply forgot. Same as you did when this post 1dt appeared.
Trouble is not usually making a mistake it is how you react after.
I personally like have perimeters what is allowed and what isn't sort of equals playong field and makes bridge more fun.
Think if someone opens 1nt.with no rules you would or could spend alot of time asking their partner about styles and tendenacys.
So even though your committee may not be most popular with everyone thanks for all the work u have all done

Not sure I bashed him except when once told he was not allowed to open this hand 1nt his response according to David was go on a rant and claim this would be changed.
Also apparently these 2 committees spent almost 2 years on these revisions were his objections not heard or not made or simply rejected.
Lastly why title something illegal bids if in certain situations these bids would be allowed.
What happens next week when a player holds AKxx AKXX Qxxx. J and thinks this shd be opened 1nt because more of a chance he gets to declare (pros do this with clients)

What irked me was your comments about club players:
“then club players would not be whining when someone did it, and might even try it.”

So club players whine when someone breaks the rule? Isn't that what you are suppose to do call director when a rule is broken?
Describe what the whinging part is referring to?

Sounds like to me club players follow the rule as instructed and for this get called whiney.

Now once it's in the rules, club players think it's not OK. But it's not in the rules based on feedback from club players.

John when this rule came out I told all my club players, some complained but every one of them has followed.
Now if you are referring Chris C. as a club player because he has complained loudly about this you are insulting him.

What I am having a real hard time with is the Committee took their time made these illegal bids and published them.
99% of players have said oh ok if that's the rule l will follow the other 1% has said nope don't like so not following and opening defiant about it.

Any sport is easy to find a rule someone doesn't like and a rule that people who play that sport don't like but as long as a rule they all know break it and they will be punished.

Want me to list rules in bridge I don't like but still follow because it is a rule? Example why can AKxx Axxx A1098 Q be opened 1nt but Akxx Axxx AJ109 J can't be? is a stiff Q so much powerful than a stiff J ?

This took seconds to find and sounds like cheating because the head of federation called it “ cheating” to me

Pingpong's problem involves players applying performance enhancing materials to the racket, or paddle, to get more grip, spin and speed. The substances go by various names — speed glue, booster or tuner.
The world governing body of table tennis has eliminated part of the problem but has yet to wipe it out, and ITTF president Adham Sharara used the word “cheating” to describe how some players get an edge.

Wanna try something else?

So David why didn't Chris express this sediment at a committee meeting?
If he did and committee out voted him we need to accept.

Chris
I apologise if you think I crossed line with you.
This is a new regulation and lots think it sucks but it clearly was approved published and we were told to inform players of this.
Now I don't like all the regulations but until it is changed everyone should follow and those who made this regulation should lead by example.
That being said even Danny forgot this so at the table I can see you forgetting, but once pointed out the solution was also easy say oops I forgot I am sorry, take your punishment and than if you like to see changes well you are already on committee write the other members privately and say can we take another look.
Publishing here has dome nothing but make yourself look bad and worst of all made this committee look like a joke!
That's what sad about bridge these days way we treat each other.

U read the illegal bids that were published it can't be any clearer.
Now let me ask if you wrote them or helped to it should be crystal clear.
I honestly think Chris was disrespectful of the game itself.
Lots of laws get made and later repealed so if this illegal bid shd be repealed go through channels just to ignore and do as u want well than why can't we ignore all the laws and everyone have it.

I read the rules took me 10 seconds to read can't have 10 cards 2 suits explained this as well I could plus other changes, not a player at my club has disregarded these new rules out of respect for the game.
How can u be on committee and not rad about 10 card rule and if u say u read why would u openly violate it? Even if it is wrong as we sit here today it is the rule?
Would you make same bid this week end at different regional?
RESPECT for the game really quite simple.

Chris
you were on committee and out voted so u blatantly violate it and than go on bridge winners whining the committee had no right to do this.
Any other complaints about committee? Boy they were lucky to have you on it, didn't get your way so said screw them.

Let me ask did u explain to your wife's club players the new rules? Now are you explaining why you think they are wrong and they shd disregard or will you wait a year until committee rescinds.

Bridge has a major problem too many lawyers trying to write laws and than looking for loop holes, just play and win at table sounds simple doesn't it!

So you are on committee that spends 2 years writing these illegal bids and than u publish them and than turn around make the bid get called out for it and than try to defend why u can make this bid.
A simple question why title it illegal bid if you going to say players can do it just not have agreements to do it.
Why not title it bids that can't be agreed to make except if I do it!
Here is a bid it time for alot of people to make and Richard has been saying it for a long time and l argued against but today totally agree with him. What is the bid I am talking about Bid farewell to Acbl…
