Because all of the participants in this division at the most recent event schooled many of the MA2 players, my guess is that there will be a new interest in participating in MA3.
While we appreciate your enthusiasm about dropping DOWN to MA3, we will be reviewing applications for the MA3 division and a person's entrance to the division will be based on a stict set of criteria that we reserve the right to change anytime and at will. One of the main criteria will be the following : Article A: At no time will any applicant be eligible to play MA3 if they have EVER been given the opportunity to play MA3 but passed on it to play outside of their rating and got their tails handed to them by the players who were playing according to their appropriate ratings. OR, if that applicant has EVER publicly on any forum stated that they will be playing up to the next division because they are too skilled to play MA3 but their rating doesn't reflect their obvious talent. again, please submit your application, cross your fingers, and hope you will be allowed to play in MA3.
Oh yeah, really there is only one rule, You have to be an incurable smart ass with a strong sense of humor, and just looking to have some fun while trying to throw plastic stuff. Please know I am just kidding and look forward to seeing this division prosper as it should be the incubator for MA2 and MA1 divisions.
I was talking with Jay Wood yesterday and he said that the MA3 division in a tournament he played this summer was totally packed! That is where the growth of the sport will come from.
