This years Captains have agreed that the Team Challenge should be class unrestricted. What does that mean? There will be no age protected slots on the teams. There will be no gender protected slots on the team. Earn your spot on a team via qualifier or convince your captain that you're skilled enough to garner a hand picked spot.
This is the record on page 5.
I voted for no age protected slots. This is my response to the vote:Hi Tracy,
I'm sorry for the delay in response. I am not feeling very well today and wanted to write a better response than what this will be, but I want to do this now and not later.
2. Team selection will be the same as Dick mentioned he'd do for the West. My first 5 qualifiers will be the top five scores during the Kan-U-Wyco. Then I will use leagues to fill the squad, reserving my Captain's pick for special cases.
3. I am for non-divisional play. All open.
Again, I'm so sorry to be late and short in this response. It bothers me that it reads this way
I hope your shoulder is feeling much better!
My error lies in not having accounted for the "women's division" when considering non-divisional play. My decision was purely based on age and skill level. Not gender.
Tracy, again, if you made it clear that women were not to be included in the format then I consider it a grievous oversight on my part and for that I apologize.
Tavish Carduff and Amanda Jackson will be competing for the East and we are proud to have them on our roster!
