Re: The 25th Isle of Mull Classic, EuroTour #2, 15/16 April 2017

Thanks for the help, Mark.

Nige - how much does it cost to play please in the 'normal' mull event, not the EuroTour? Can you direct us to a location that makes this clear? Thanks.

Re: The 25th Isle of Mull Classic, EuroTour #2, 15/16 April 2017

I can't seem to find that info anywhere, Mark. Where have you come by it please?

Also those look like the fees for the Eurotour event. I'd like to know the fee for the regular Mull event if someone can direct me please?

Re: Bdga National Match Play Championships

I have been in the minority many a time, and when a vote goes the other way I go along with it. That's democracy. But right now, this particular case it is not a vote and the Board have made clear their position. The Nationals TD does not have the right to alter the format after the event has been a...

Re: Bdga National Match Play Championships

Jester, I understand why you disagree. This has nothing to do with irony or mandate and has everything to do with not only honoring agreements as stated but most importantly moving forward at unprecedented times for our sport in the UK on an event that has a recent history of format experimentation...

Re: Bdga National Match Play Championships

Changing the the rules mid season is a huge mistake and will only lead to loss of credibility for the Association. Is this irony? :roll: There is clearly no loss of credibility to the Association for keeping Nationals in the established format (until such time that they agree a change would be the ...

Re: Bdga National Match Play Championships

In my defense I posted this in September, Who will be hosting Nationals in '17? Is the TD for Nationals in '17 interested in deviating from the normal format? Yes, you did say that, and can you post the link to the rest of the thread please? I hope this is already apparent, merely saying in the pas...

Re: Bdga National Match Play Championships

Phil or Tom - before this goes any further, could you please confirm the situation with Nationals format? I was not under the impression it was up for change. If it is to stay as-is, please could we have a confirming statement for the avoidance of doubt? Then this chat can continue along hypothetica...

Re: The 25th Isle of Mull Classic, EuroTour #2, 15/16 April 2017

Hi Nige. Can you outline what the differences will be between the 'parallel' event and the EuroTour event? Just trying to work out the value of the greater fee in entering the latter. Thanks

Re: Bdga National Match Play Championships

I’m not following this thread closely, apologies if I have misunderstood. Context: when the Top 16 Nationals Match Play started in 1996 it was a 2-day event, 4 rounds of 18 straight knock format. In the early 00s, a ‘World Cup’ format of group play followed by knockout was experimented with a few ye...

Re: 2017 Tour Schedule - registered events

Phil, I think someone mentioned it previously, a public Google spead sheet calendar would surely be very useful here? It could show all events, both those that are BDGA sanctioned and those that TDs are proposing to hold providing a central point of reference for all TDs, players, sponsors, media etc.

Re: 2017 Tour Schedule - registered events

@Seamus thanks for the invite! I certainly hope to be playing in the EuroTour that weekend. Who knows, if Mr Young is up for it perhaps after all these years Double Malt will play at another event again. :)

@Hatton thanks for the heads up.

Re: 2017 Tour Schedule - registered events

In a regular bdga sesaon of past there would only have been likely 4 or 5 events between January and June so you actually already have more choice. Hmm, not sure it feels that I have more choice at the moment. As far as 2-day events go there is currently nothing for 3 months until Mull in mid-April...

Re: 2017 Tour Schedule - registered events

Not a great deal of activity on this thread. Was really hoping to see more TDs publicising the date for their event in the coming season. Or is this really all the events taking place? As a player, not knowing tournament dates well in advance makes it impossible to plan, which in turn means it's les...

Re: Announcement 131116

The commitment to go would be included in the declaration of interest. Yes, we would draw up a reserve list - people's circumstances change. Great, that covers it. 'Financial interest' clearly includes being involved in a business that sponsors players, as long as those players are up for selection...

Re: Announcement 131116

As you asked, Tom, thoughts on National Team Selection. Overall I think this looks great. For openness and transparency it's excellent that there will be an independent committee to make the Team selection. Individuals that do and do not make the squad can be sure they've each be treated fairly and ...
