ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY REMINDER

May 12, 2019

Central Carolina Bridge Association, Unit 169, is a Zero Tolerance Policy Unit.  The objective of this policy is to create a more pleasant atmosphere at our unit games and tournaments.  We believe that by encouraging good behavior and by eradicating unacceptable behavior we will make our games more enjoyable for all.

 

We expect common sense behavior and respect toward every person and toward the rules and ethics of the game.  Discourtesy must be avoided.  Players should treat the director, their partners and their opponents with respect.  

Additionally, players must observe good habits of grooming and personal hygiene. Body odor, from any cause, should not create distractions. To accommodate sensitive individuals, players are discouraged from wearing or applying excessive amounts of perfume, cologne, scented lotions, or other scented products at games.
