Issues for 2017
Format—Dolores plans to use same format as 2016 Masters (See
Attachment). Skill Shots used to break ties.
2. Rules require specific
number of players be signed up two weeks prior for Master Tournaments
and this Thursday 3/9/2017 is deadline date. To date, Dolores reports only four (4) District Am ladies
signed up with 1 possible cancellation. No Alternate for Men.
Issue #2 Concerns: Of the 4 D. Am ladies
signed up, one may not be able play; and a second lady holds 13 master
points, will be a St Am in fall—and this is her only chance to play
in D. Am Masters. Without
4 lady players, Ladies D. Am Masters Tournament cannot be held. There
are eight (8) Men D. Ams signed up, and no male alternate player. Need guidelines for Tournament Director to follow if there are
only 3 lady players; and how to handle no male alternate.
Motion made by
Margaret Hartzler, “If there are not enough Ladies to play in the
Dist. Am Masters, the lady shuffler holding 13 master points be
allowed to be the 8th/9th player in the Mens Dist. Am Masters

carried unanimously by SWCD Board members present.
six ladies signed up for St. Am Masters; and 13 Ladies signed up for
3. Ties for 8th Place–St Am Men, 13 signed up and there is a 5-way tie for 8th place. For the 5-way tie,

5 tied players.
Motion made by
Jerry Stannard “Should there be any ties for 8th place
in any division, those players would play one 12 frame game (6 &
6) against each other to determine that place and/or the alternate
Slaughterbeck seconded, motion carried.
