I dont see that thread but just wanted to chime in that I think this deserves some discussion. I would think there would be a lot of interest and support for this.
This HAS been discussed. The MAIN issues are the "format", the venue AND the Regional boundries for each Team.
It would most likely be modeled after the Southwest Team Invitational that has taken place in San Diego for the past 28 years.
8 Teams, 12 Players per Team.........In ths model there are NO AMS.
(8 Open, 3 Masters, 1 GM & 1 Woman)
The ONLY way that AMS could be included is with STRICT Ratings brakets, which would make PDGA membership MANDITORY so up to date ratings could be used.
IF it were to happen there would be room for 5 or 6 Teams from the NW with AT LEAST 2 invitations going out to Teams from the South (Sylmar, Redwood Empire, Santa Cruz or San Diego)
The Venue MUST be 24 Holes and a FAST playing course as 60 holes (5 Matches) are played on Saturday
with 2 Matches and the Finals on Sunday (top 2 Teams)
