Another Proposal for SF
I am a junior and actually would prefer an early start time, and know that at least a few of my peers agree. My guess is that Dave is right that most juniors prefer later start times, but I think it might be a little closer than he imagines. Juniors ...
Is this forcing? (Basic stuff)

Hi Al, What is your basis for your claim that the recipients are giving up nothing and making no effort to find a workaround nor help research options?

Perhaps if the ACBL didn't squander a few million dollars, it wouldn't be expensive as heck. Certainly ACBL membership and NABC entry fees could be cheaper
