Tues at face to face bridge 1 pair could not play 6 of the boards because 1 of the partners became ill and had to go home.

The BD'S were scored as ave 3 for E/W and 3 for N/S
There were 7 rounds and this effected the scores in two of the rounds.

This lowered our score since we were above 50%.
I don,t agree with this.
Believe we should have received A+ or our average score not 50% on the BD's

Am I correct?

You're right according to Law 12C2.(a). But the person was ill enough to have to leave - maybe that should be the primary consideration here.

It depends on the RA. There should be a policy. Note that the club is the RA here. A+ should be correct, but after one or two boards, it gets to be too much of a factor. The EBU, after a certain fraction of the event, removes the absent pair's score for everyone, and scores them as if it was a sitout throughout (which, certainly, has its own issues - "but we got 2000 on board 6!)

I don't like Average for someone not at all at fault. Are you sure it wasn't NP (which also has issues, but makes sense, and keeps your other scores)?

But remember, if the person that got sick was running a 63% (and would be expected to), perhaps 50% improved your expected score?

All technical arguments aside, sfi has a very good point.
