Thinking of running a PDGA C-Tier on December 28th or 29th, or maybe 2 one day events. Giving people a last chance to get the points they may need to qualify for going to Pro Worlds (Portland, OR) or Am Worlds (St. Paul, MN).
If it happens, it will be a “ratings event” which mean you get to register based on your PDGA rating, and not on your division. Up to 5 divisions could be offered, but I’d probably only offer 2. The bigger the divisions, the more points available for everyone.
The breakdown is as follows (keeping in mind, you can play above your rating if you want):
970+: Open/Gold, scored as MPO (Pro Open), point multiplier for a C-Tier: 5. With 20 participants the winner would get 100 pro points. If you need the points, all you have to do is encourage more people to come out.
less than 970: Advanced/Blue, scored as MA1 (Amateur Advanced), point multiplier for a C-Tier: 5 (could maybe go Am B-Tier, which would be 7.5). With 35 participants the winner would get 175 amateur points (or 262.5 points if B-Tier).
less than 935: Intermediate/White, scored as MA2 (Amateur Intermediate), points multiplier for a C-Tier: 4 (B-Tier: 6). Probably would not offer, as even if everyone in this division finished after everyone else in Advanced (unlikely) they’d still get more points if they played in Advanced (4th from last would get 20pts instead of 16pts for example).
less than 900: Recreational/Red, scored as MA3 (Amateur Recreational), points multiplier for a C-tier: 3 (B-Tier: 4.5). Again, probably would not offer.
less than 850: Novice/Green, scored as MA4 (Amateur Novice), points multiplier for C-Tier: 2 (B-Tier: 3). Again, probably would not offer, finishing 2nd to last would be worth 10pts vs 4pts if they played in advanced instead.
Are there any clubs/courses out there which are interested in hosting or being involved? Let me know ASAP.
