I would like any good BC player who has worked hard to be able to play so I open to suggestion to how to add them without incident if they don't 'belong' to one of the existing 'clubs'.
How about a "draft" where a player who wishes to play, (and qualifies based on DG ratings), declares their availability, and the team that finished last, gets first pick at the pool of players available?
That way, the club affiliation becomes irrelevant and the weaker teams get first crack at eligible players. This won't necessarily mean that eligible players play,(the team captains may decide that their current roster is not in need of the players available), but it will allow for injured players, or players who cannot attend, to be replaced with players whom have declared their availability and desire to play in the JB Cup.
For qualification purposes,(suggestions only):
- A minimum number of DG events in the previous calendar year.
- The player must have played in a division where the Open teepads are used,(in order to be fairly ranked).
- Assuming four teams with eight players each, their ranking must be in the top....50 players?
