Starting in May, we will have 2 changes to the Swope league.
1. Ratings based divisions. Since I've been running league this year, we've only had 1 masters card. As a result of the large open and am divisions, I've decided to implement a cash division between the 2. Ratings cuttoff have yet to be determined, but I'm working on that. Here's the breakdown.
Pro 1: $7 entry, $4.50 from each player into the pot, top 1/4 get paid. (possibly 970 and up)
Pro 2: $5 entry, 2.5 from each player into the pot, top 1/3 get paid. (970 and down)
Am 1: $5 entry, KC Cash payout, top 1/2 get paid (I think...Whatever it is now) (920 and down)
And so on.
2. An actual league. This will be a 15 week league. Cost of playing this 15 week league is $20 UP FRONT. Your best 10 weeks count. This will go ACROSS DIVISIONS using ratings. Here's how it works: For a given week, you will have a player rating to begin the round. This player rating will be compared with your round rating that night to see the % difference. Based on this difference, you'll be ranked against those playing in the league that night. Like the PDGA points system, you will be awarded points for how many people you beat that night in the % difference. So your best ten nights will be counted, and we'll pay out 1/3 of the those who paid in.
Please let me know any questions or comments you have. I'm looking forward to mixing it up at Swope this summer!
