    It doesn't apply to me, but will you allow teams that have players rated lower than 970 to play in the Amateur division? There might be some Pro Master and Pro Grandmaster players that would be more likely to play if they were allowed to play against teams closer to their rating.

      Did you mean to say: "will you allow teams that have players rated HIGHER than 970 to play in the Amateur division?"

      I was trying to clarify the divisions. I know of a couple of Pro Masters that might show up if PDGA guidelines were followed for divisions. Requiring all 970+ players to play in the higher division would only be in effect for 2 amateur players from Washington and 5 from Oregon. (989 being the highest). IMO an amateur player should never be forced to play in the Open field. I know the discussion could go on forever, but the subjective cut-off line of 970 (or whatever you choose) will never be perfect and somebody will always have the short-end of the stick. Same goes for Pro2 and Intermediate divisions.

                  I figured I would lose a few people that way but last year it worked as a strong point, so we figured we would use it again.

                    Sounds interesting and i am curious about John's question about allowing some lower rated pro masters and grandmasters playing in a lower division. Heck even make the divisions rating based off the higher rated player. I am a pro master and rated in the 960's and would not stand too much of a chance playing with someone my equal against 1000 rated players. Then again the same could be said with some intermediate teams playing against some advanced and masters teams. Could it be possible to create more divisions based off ratings?

                    Thanks Jason for the quick reply.........did you hear anything back from Tim about the WA State doubles?

                        Not really too sure myself, but my suggestion and i hope others do chime in and lay their opinions as well would be to have a division in between advanced and pro open like the PDGA did about 7-8 years ago called the Pro 2 division. Any team can play pro open of course, but any team member that has a rating of lets say 970-980 can not drop any play pro 2 or lower. To play advance then any team member can not have a rating higher then lets say 940-950. Heck even a intermediate division could be created and have two amateur divisions and two pro. Of course this idea would get shatter if there are players who would like to play and sign up that do not have a PDGA rating. Maybe ask around and get some more ideas..........really like John's idea though.

                      I vote for keeping it simple. A 950-960 rated player should not have to play above advanced imo unless they want to. I get your point though dan...

                      You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy.
