Director question
Aviv, which is why I propose the question to the board. I basically came to the same conclusion as to the fact that they would still end up at 5D, but I'd still like to know the proper ruling for everything so I can avoid issues like this in ...

Give me a second to find the hand.
Director question
In case it matters to the decision, the opponents did ask about a couple bids. 2H was described to the opponents as "spades & a minor", and 2NT was described as "show me your minor; I can support it".
Director question
I think that's my point, in that knowing that West can support either minor, they'll likely end up in 5D either way. (I definitely have a good grasp of their bidding / bidding style having partnered with one of the pair before and having watched over them as a ...
How to handle "anxious" newcomers?

How to handle "anxious" newcomers?
People would like them in our game because everybody in our club is friendly and everybody knows everybody. Our top scorer this year in our club games isn't even an ACBL member, so while extra points would be nice with more tables, it isn't the reason we are ...
How to handle "anxious" newcomers?
Thanks for the reply. The club we started out is a non-profit, so it's definitely not a money maker for me or other board members. In that, I mean that any money brought in is spent on club expenses (eventually we'll save up for a dealing machine). What ...
How to handle "anxious" newcomers?
I mean, it's things a beginner wouldn't learn, but it's not that far off from standard bidding (showing 2 suits vs. one for overcalling NT and 2/1 is just standard with the 1NT forcing and game forcing at the 2 level). But you're absolutely right ...
