| Proposed Changes in Tourney Ranges
At the suggestion of many members, Tournament VIII's tourney ranges were just 200 points apart rather than 400 with the exception of the Masters Tourney, the range of which was 2200 to 2500. However, as a result of the changes, only 3 (Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, and Open) out of 8 possible tourneys had enough participants to make.
I propose to have a 300 point range in Tournament IX, which is scheduled to commence in January 2012 as follows:
Starter Tourney 800 to 1100
Minor Tourney 1100 to 1400
Intermediate Tourney 1400 to 1700
Major Tourney 1700 to 2000
Masters Tourney 2000 to 2500
Open Tourney any range
Any throughs or suggestions on this proposal would be greatly appreciated.
| I have already started an over 1800 tournament
I have already started an over 1800 tournament, which combined the proposed 1800-2000, 2000-2200 and 2200-2500 tournaments.
| Oh sorry
Oh sorry, I see now that you are talking about the next tournaments for January
| Another way of doing it
Another way of doing it would be to ask for all players interested in playing in such tournaments, and then divide them up into sections, rather than plan sections and then, if necessary, split up sections and/or merge others because of numbers....
| Re: Another way of doing it
Thanks for the suggestion. Also, thank you for initiating the 1800 to 2500 tournament. Please apprise me of this beforehand in the future.
