Ratings team tourneys in up to 10 bands!!!

wallyjack

Hi my friends,

Due to the staggering response from groups & teams to my trialling 3 tourneys in specific ratings bands,I am proposing to stage more tourneys of this ilk in as many as 10 ratings bands! I must be bloody mad!! LOLLaughing Hopefully this will encourage more teams,especially the less numerous ones,to participate in what I hope is fairer team matches.If you would like to view the 3 ratings bands site so that you can see the structure,rules,format,etc,and,hopefully,like the idea of what you see and would be interested in entering a team or teams in future ratings team tourneys,then here is the link:-

Thank you for taking the time and the trouble to read this forum and that you'll be entering teamsSmile.

I think you have a great idea, more power to you if you have the time & energy to create these tnmts for everyone else to play in.

PS: Forget the shrink - a bottle of Bombay Gin, Wild Turkey Rye, or a single-malt Scotch is a lot cheaper and probably just as effective.

Thank you,my friend,and I've obviously been self-administering psychiatric treatment for the past 40+ years!!!Wink

After a good deal of thought,this is my proposed ratings bands:-

<1199.
1200-1350.
1351-1500.
1501-1650.
1651-1800.
1801-1950.
1951-2100.
2101-2250.
>2251.

Teams could then select however many bands that they wished to enter without being obligated to try and put out full and 'open' teams in matches.I think that 5 players is a fair minimum number to constitute a match and this would give the smaller teams a better chance to compete against the "big boys".Obviously for these team tourneys to come to fruition will heavily rely on support from all groups and teams.

Band widths are narrow.. we could keep minimum players to 3

Yep,it's all open for debate.

I think it doesn't matter how many Bands there r ... as long as Teams r willing to participate ... the More d Better ! ... more Choices for All .

.. U make them ,we join them ! Cool

If there's no Response for any 1 Band,juz scrap that one .( might be a bit of a waste of time but not much,I think )

.. minimum 3 Players seems a bit low for a Competition ( to me ie.) ... juz my Opinion tho.

Tnx Soooo Much for yr Time/Efforts/Enthusiasm  etcccc in Creating them ! Smile
