09/05/19   Changes to BCAPL World Championships for 2020

    Before getting into the changes for 2020, here's another reminder. if you want to play in the 2020 BCAPL World Championships in March, all qualifying games (40) must be completed by December 31st

    Hopefully you have all had a chance to look over the 2020 BCAPL World Championships email from csi that I forwarded a couple of days ago. There have been some rather significant changes in both pricing and structure.

Scotch Doubles
    There is no longer a Jack & Jill requirement for Scotch Doubles. Partners can now be made up of two women, two men, or a man and a woman. A 450 is a 450, whether it be a man or a woman, and that rating is based solely on performance, with gender playing no part in it. Every year I have guys coming to me wanting to play Scotch Doubles, only to find out that there's not enough women to go around. This new rule should give everyone an opportunity to play that wants to.

8-Ball Team Changes
    I have been advocating for three years that they to do away with the Trophy Division, but it was falling on deaf ears. Even this past July, they said it would never happen, but miraculously, it HAS happened and that's great. They created a new Diamond Division at the top and changed the names of the remaining divisions to match the Fargo Cap. By removing the Trophy Division, teams that fall into that 2750 cap will now have a better opportunity than in the past, when they were jumping over the Trophy and into the Gold where they were outclassed by 500 Fargo Points.

The Down Side -- Prices $$
    Team Entry Fees have gone up substantially for this coming tournament. I'm trying to go through and project costs, but we should have enough to cover the increases without raising shooting fees. Unfortunately, it will definitely reduce the amount of team spending money to divided up in Vegas.
