I don't see why there shouldn't be a pro women's division if there are only three ladies. I would only encourage people to play in an alternate division if there is only one or maybe two people that want to play that division. We will work it out so everyone will be happy (that'd be a first, but might as well shoot high). It's all about having some fun, right?
After thinking about it for as moment, I think it would be fun as well to mix up the first round for everybody, as in playing against people not necessarily in your division. People get to play with others that they wouldn't normally get to play with in tournaments, and then in the second round we'll put people back into there respective divisions for the purposes of monitoring your competition progress, or maybe lack there of. Comments? Suggestions?
Hope to see you all there...
Hey Bart thanks so much for being so supportive of the ladies. It is this type of attitude that has helped our area to be one of the strongest for ladies participation.
Also I love the idea of mixing up the division for the first round. That is one of the things I love about the McIver 3P0. At last years McIver 3PO I got to play with #163 & Wayne a very awesome guy who was visiting from Texas . That was one of my most favorite rounds of the year.
