The 2023 season will kick off on January 28th, 2023.
Game selection and order will be done like last season (player choice). For example, in a 4 player group, the highest seed will choose game 1 and will go last, 2nd highest seed will go 3rd, 3rd highest seed will go 2nd and 4th highestwill go 1st. We will then rotate game and position, so 2nd highest will choose game 2 and go last, etc. This way everybody has a chance to choose at least one game, and go last at least once. It should also reduce bottlenecks on games. In 3 person groups the two top will choice twice and go last, in 4 person groups only the top seed will have this opportunity.
We are going down to 24 players for the year. Fees will be $25 if hosting, $75 if not hosting. The $1 IFPA fee is still in place for those that want to be ranked.
Here are the initial seeds going into the 1st week. New players have been initially seeded based on known abilities. Returning players have been seeded at their last level when they left league. Please welcome new players Raymond Davidson, Mark Seiden, Erin Seiden, and Jane Verwys and returning players Keith Johnson and Ehren Bilhausen
All players make the end of year tournament 1-12 in A, 13-24 in B. As in the past, trophies will be given for each division champ. Plaques will be given for 2nd, and cash for 3rd.
Partial points will once again be awarded for absents, but this time on a sliding scale. A complete rules summary can be seen here with groups (based on your current seed) can be seen here:
