Compass Directions

edited May 2007 in Bridge Laws
Can you tell me where in the Laws it says when playing a Howell that one player should play as North or East and his partner as South or West. Also where does it state that East should check the score and check the correct boards are being played. In my opinion all good Laws. WGT

    Law 5 covers the Assignment of Seats. Quoting in part Law 5A "Having once selected a compass direction, a player may change it within a session only upon instruction or with permission of the Director".
