ACBL membership policy requires players to have an ACBL membership number in order to participate in ACBL sanctioned tournaments.  Players without a number must purchase an ACBL membership in order to get that number (this doesn't affect lapsed memberships as those numbers can still be used).  To that end, the ACBL has introduced 1 month temporary memberships for $10 CDN so that non-members will have a player number to allow them to participate.  This number can be used to play in future events even if the player decides not to renew their membership.  Click here for more information about temporary ACBL memberships.
