The weight options in particular are a great idea given the current lack of competitive outlets.


Cheers. Hoping the weight options entice some newer guys to come give it a crack. We've had way more entrants than I was expecting so we may be changing it to top 10 do last 4 events.

sweet.

its a crying shame that all this pent up demand has had to build up due to what has gone before in the division.

but, on the positive tip, it looks like we have some serious potential to harness going forward.

maybe call for regional quals in future years?

Personal opinion is there isn't enough lads for regionals. England's U90 is skipping them again this year and in my opinion going against 25 lads in a final showdown as apposed to 5-6 lads in a qualifier is much more fun

Just my opinion obviously Happy

I see what you mean. I like the idea of regional champions though. I think it encourages guys to make the jump from novice to nationals when you have stepping stones to get there. makes it hard to accommodate different levels of ability when you have a direct entry final.

got good memories of the days doing the mids u90.

That's why we've gone with the weight options for 3 of the first 4 events so it accommodates for people of all levels.

I agree. Also takes less time and resources to do 1 comp vs 4 which allows you to funnel the money back into the comp.

yeah I see that - with a straight to final set up that is definitely the way to go. I see pros and cons for both set ups.

I just like the idea of local divisions like we used to have with the 105s and 90s. regional banter, more local exposure, more titles.

I am a bottom feeder though so maybe I would see it that way. perspective is everything. Grin
