Our Process Improvements Task Force: made up of Anita Pettus, Mike McCann, Max Hoover and Chaired by Jackie Merkel continues to work on preparing recommendations for movements of various size games, simplifying computer instructions/process for Directors to post their games and hand records, making recommendations to improve the flow of games as well as penalties for slow play.  They also are revisiting the issue of playing directors in all level of games.   They are making progress.  They have been doing research including talking with ACBL Tournament Directors and Directors of other clubs in Florida and California that have large games on a daily basis.  We are excited to hear their recommendations and see improved processes in the near future.   Thanks for your continued patience as they do their work.
