Each player will be ranked by the ranking committee(4-6 players selected) at the beginning of the season. The handicap points for each player for the match as well as the length of the match is determined by the Handicap table . Upon request from the player and with the approval of the ranking committee, a player's ranking can be adjusted up or down during a season as needed.
Play will start no later then 7:30 p.m. You can arrange with you opponent to start early.
Standings are based on Matches Won, then Diff, then HR if needed. Diff is the difference in points between you and your opponents. HR is your best High Run.
In the event a player is unable to play a scheduled match, the league will allow a match to be made up as long as the match is played within a two week period. If a player knows in advance he/she will be unable to play (due to vacation, etc.), we would STRONGLY encourage that the scheduled match be preplayed to avoid delayed make-up matches. Once a make-up match is played, the scores MUST be reported the NEXT DAY to either league director.
If a player is unable to play on a scheduled night AND his/her opponent cannot agree on a make-up night within a reasonable time frame (absolutely no more than two weeks), he/she would be given a loss of the match. The opponent would be given a win with no point, no Diff or HR.
In the event there are an uneven number of players in any given season, each player will receive a "Bye" during the course of the season. "Byes" are considered wins, with no point, no Diff or HR. Players are responsible for paying dues for "Bye" weeks.
Should a player forfeit a match, total dues must be paid. Should a player forfeit two consecutive weeks during a season schedule, he/she may be dropped for the remainder of the season and any awards are forfeited.
In the event two or more players quit the league after the start of the season, the schedule of the matches may be re-done at the discretion of the league director.
