Mark your calendars, the first qualifiers will be here sooner than you think. There will be two qualifiers for each side held at leagues in your region:
For the West team:
- Rosedale league on Aug 8th (3 Open, 1 Masters and 1 Woman)
- Wyco league on Aug 24th. (4 Open, 1 Masters)
For the East team:
- Waterworks on Aug 16th (3 Open, 1 Masters and 1 Woman)
- Swope league on Aug. 28th (4 Open, 1 Masters)
You’ll just participate in league as usual. But be sure to check in with me. If you have not paid for sponsor/entry prior to that league start, you will not be competing for a spot.
The division you play in for league doesn’t define what division you’ll qualify in. You can play Am and still qualify for an Open spot. Masters age players can play in Open division and qualify as a Master. They can also play in Masters and qualify as Open. It’s all based on scores. Highest scoring woman gets that slot. Highest scoring Master gets that slot, unless he is also in one of the top Open slots. In which case, the Captain will decide which slot he wants to assign to that Master. If the Captain decides to give the Master an Open slot, then the next highest Master aged score will get the Master slot (unless, of course, that Master also shot well enough to be in the top Open slots, in which case repeat Captain decision process).
Don’t worry, it’s not as confusing as it might seem. Soon after each league qualifier is complete, we’ll announce who made it. Remember qualifiers are not the only way into this event. 5 spots on each team will be determined by lottery picks(2) and Captains selection(3).
All KCFDC club members are welcome and encouraged to attend. We value your ideas and feedback. Members do not have voting rights but are allowed to participate in conversation. Our agenda is always posted on the discussion forum prior to the meeting. If there is a subject you are interested in or have an agenda item to add we would encourage you to join us.
Please note: the building is locked at all times so you’ll need to be there by 6:30 pm- otherwise call Kristie at 816-716-4899 to be let in.
