New TD Forum available

In response to requests, we have established a TD forum where you can ask questions and discuss matters of interest. It is open to everyone - not just restricted to qualified TDs - and anyone needing help with any matter relating to the Laws can use it.

Since the Laws of Duplicate Bridge 2017 have fairly recently come into effect, we anticipate that there may be a number of questions that TDs will have that more experienced colleagues may be able to help with.

The forum is available at:

Update: A sub-forum for those wishing to ask questions about scoring has been added.
