All things considered being a BOD member looks like a big job so thanks for all you guys do and keeping us posted.

I hope my appreciation earns me the right to make three (3) suggestions.

1) Regarding Special Events Sanctioning with 2 points I recommend you replace "normal division" with "the lowest division for which the player is qualified". I would also add that Special Events are irrelevant to reclassification. (Ok that one has 2 subparts)

2) Regarding "pricing of finishing award disc at SN events" I think that is great for the SNC's but not so sure it is a good idea to get into the TD's/Club's pocket at SNQ's. The SN should rein over fair competition at SNQ's but finances are not really relevant to that. It is a slippery slope because there are many facets to SNQ finances that may be best left up to Tds.

3) Whatever you do add it to the Handbook.

It should be treated as a regular event. The format is known beforehand. Match play is treated as a regular event. If SN divisions are offered, AM/Adv players payed out in plastic, I do not see a reason to treat it differently.

Come up to Mississippi, where TDs charge you $10 for DX , or $20 for "one of a kind" rocs that they're a tub full of, used discs in payout. These TDs/Vendors know who they are.

Not like this handbook will EVER see the light of day...

If it is like a regular event it does not need to be a treated as special event. The two examples of a special event that come to mind are the SN Cup (if it happens again) and a trophy only charity with mulligans.

In the SN Cup what division do your 2 points go in? You don't have 2 singles rounds in any division. The division played in may not work for a special event.

The problem with "normal" is that in some cases it can't be statistically determined. The player could choose, but then there is something else for somebody to keep up with and pass along in the results. If you go with "highest" everybody gets open points. That's why I suggested lowest, just to have a clear objectively determinable standard.

On the reclassification issue, the trophy only mulligan charity is a good example of one that should not reclassify.

The way to fix greedy Tds is to not go to their events, but the point is their greed is irrelevant to fair competition, which should be the limit of SN control IMO.

No point in making any rules without fixing the handbook publication issue.
