  1. I paid my acbl dues recently and it says I can't register for this event. How long does it take for your computer to update?

  2. No, for the prizes, but you probably cannot register to any of the "restricted" events if membership is not up to date. Life Master, Non-Life Master require active membership, while the open events just a valid ACBL number, even if it lapsed

  3. Click ACBL World, and you will see the tournament listed there as of 5 AM Wednesday. Click once on it to register, and click again to start playing
