Jeff Easterson, a Director with a hand record:

How about hand records, distributed to the TDs before play begins?
This is usual in most (all?) of the tournaments I direct. Ciao, JE

Grattan Endicott stated:

+=+ I have no reason to think it can be sound procedure for the
Director to make himself aware of the contents of the hand.
                                                   ~ Grattan ~   +=+

Grattan Endicott clarified:

+=+ Richard Hills, in hibernation, opens one eye to read a comment
in isolation from its context. +=+

Grattan Endicott apparently intended this contextual statement:

+=+ I have no reason to think it can be sound procedure When The
Director Judges Whether Or Not The Specific Law 20F6 Applies for the
Director to make himself aware of the contents of the hand.
                                                   ~ Grattan ~   +=+

Sven Pran with greater dogmatism in a universal context:

The Director should never consult these [hand] records no more than
he should look directly at the cards before making any judgment
ruling during auction or play. He should in fact make it absolutely
clear at the table that he will not act so that he can be suspected
of having made any ruling based on knowledge of the actual cards.

He may of course use such records to prepare himself for his
possible subsequent ruling should that be called for.

Monty Python's Life of Brian:

"All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and
medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads
and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the
Romans done for us?"

Richard Hills, a Director with a hand record:

All right... all right... but apart from Law 6D2, Law 13A, Law
13D2(a), Law 13F, Law 66C and Law 67B2(a), the Director should never
consult a hand record no more than the Director should look directly
at the cards before making any judgment ruling during the auction or
the play.


Best wishes
