Although I gotta tell you I certainly hope these "lessons" don't continue. I hate to potty train at gunpoint but next time we are gona line peeps up , double count, double count the cards, line people up & I will just go down the row letting people draw cards to make sure that doesn't happen again.
What is upsetting is that this happens a lot in the East random draw doubles. This is why it was particularly frustrating to BJ. It happens too often, and it shouldn't. Worst of all, it happened twice. If you get a good partner (doesn't have to be a skilled player, it can be someone you like) and there's a re-draw, it can sour anyone's mood. That affects your game before it even begins. I was going to walk off if there was a third re-draw.
As a consequence of all this, we started our round at 6:30 pm. That's ridiculous. All leagues begin at 6 pm, meaning the cards are written prior to 6 o'clock. What happens when we start this late? You can't have a proper playoff because it's too dark to play, so it's all settled with a luck shot contest. Super lame.
P.S. You must have a hard cutoff time. If you're late, you're late (unless you call ahead letting the league director know you're running a little behind). It's not fair for Cali to get lumped with the late guy. Classic BS move.
