A. UNIT RELATIONSHIP TO THE CLUB
The primary concern of ACBL management is the welfare of its members as it relates to the game of bridge. Thus, regulations have been established by ACBL to protect the interests of its members. However, these regulations are only in force during ACBL sanctioned masterpoint games. Except at a Unit Sponsored Club as defined below, units, districts and ACBL have no original jurisdiction over behavior at club sponsored games. Only ACBL can assess discipline against a club for a violation of ACBL regulations.
B. UNIT SPONSORED CLUB
Unit Sponsored Club: A club which has any one or more of the following features: (a) a board which is the same as the unit board or which is appointed by the unit; or (b) a co-mingling of funds with those of the unit; or (c) a placement of funds in a unit owned account; or (d) the appointment of a club manager or director by the Unit.
