If any changes to player classification restrictions were to be made, at this point, it would be to remove them altogether. I feel that is the direction this event should take. Even now, there are enough players in the area to create Amateur only and/or Masters only versions of this event. There are probably not enough interested women or juniors to have dedicated events of this type for each. Growth of the sport in the area should eventually change that.
That said, once the East Side confirms who their Captain is, I'll discuss changes, if any, that the Captains would like to make and can agree to for 2014.
P.S. Jamie will be heading up barefooters only subjectively judged version at some future date.
