Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

No details as yet. We're waiting for them to tell us more. I guess accommodation near the course (Stretford Park?) would be the best bet?

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

You suggest I'm blinkered, but I have attempted to run matchplay events with weird and wonderful number/formats in the past. I think you're underestimating the difficulty. Having played in a few of these weird and wonderful events, I can attest to how awkward they are for TDs to run and for players...

Re: Inclusiveness

This might be a better tiebreak procedure in an all inclusive Bdga Tour. "Where 2 or more players are tied for bonus cashing positions in the overall points standings then the tie(s) shall be broken by totaling the EuroTour points earned by each player at events where they competed head to head. An...

Presume you mean the cumulative total of the ratings of your best (10) rated rounds?

That doesn't necessarily reward consistent play over whole tournaments though...

Re: Inclusiveness

1. What is not fair about one Bdga event per 18 hole course, per year, all the same rules? The Bdga would be supporting all willing 18 hole courses equally. 2. I meant all 7 events as a Bdga member, I was also assuming you'd need to be a Bdga member to qualify for Power Stats. 3.I don't think Phil ...

Re: Inclusiveness

No worries - no rush on the response! 1. It wasn't the tie I was worried about, so much as whether people would be happy with one player getting 600 points via a few one-day events (where he or she could have been the only entrant in that division, or playing against just a couple of lesser-ability ...

Re: Inclusiveness

D. for one calendar year only, see where players want to attend then reinforce it in 2018 with a 4-6 Majors concept. In the details I like how you describe a "most improved" award using Pdga ratings, all it needs is a time frame. I don't agree that the tour will have no structure, traditional tourn...

Re: Inclusiveness

In 3 years I have been on two Bdga sub-committees discussing Tour reform and other possible reforms which included numerous Skype chats and email chains. I don't understand how this is not an appropriate amount of time to either have a plan to be more inclusive or not. The only reason I bring up To...

Re: Inclusiveness

With plenty of opinions being gathered about what the BDGA should do and offer, it could be a good time to remind people that the AGM is also the time of year when election of officers to the Board happens (5 positions: National Director, Secretary, Treasurer, Director of Communications, Director of...

Re: Inclusiveness

In this thread http://www.bdga.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1910 there was a vigorous discussion of possibilities for the BDGA which was perhaps short on clarity and viable possibilities but full of heated opinions. The only thing that is clear is that whatever we do, we're not going to please e...

Re: Inclusiveness

Don't undervalue the size of the sport in the country. There's over 100000 people that play every year and growing. The bdga appears only focused on a tiny tiny portion of this number If that is the case (and I've no idea where you got that number from), then the BDGA trying to be inclusive of 1000...

Re: Inclusiveness

Fair enough - it was just that Seamus said his main concern referred to the EC team selection. All good points that have been raised. I guess I could turn them on their head and ask: what do people want from the BDGA? I perceive a lot of pressure for us to do something , I'm just in no way close to ...
