This isn’t going well
It is 1:45, and they have just called the move for the second round in the opening session of the mixed pairs. Why Is it going so slowly? I think because the seeding has become a major bottleneck.
Two of the most important people on the seeding committee have passed away recently. Nadine Wood and Jim Kirkham were the backbone of seeding for many years.
Tonight, I’ll talk to League president Don Mamula about what’s happening with this situation. There is simply no excuse for the seeded players to get to the table 30 minutes late. It is disrespectful to the entire field to start the game this late, and have the movement out of sync the rest of the day.
