This makes sense to me

Leave your bid cards on the table, Please.

The JCBL (effective 1 Nov 2007) adopted a new rule regarding bidding boxes. Namely:

The bidding cards are to be left on the table without being moved until the opening lead has been turned face up (i.e., after the leader’s partner has asked whatever questions he/she may have). Only after the opening lead has been faced are the bidding cards to be returned to the bidding box.

Ist’t that technically the protocol also in ACBL-land? I will often ask that the bid cards be left on the table until my partner has led.
