Re: Challenger Challenge 2017 - Managers thread

@PortlandTimbers so can you manage next week? If you want, I can send you your spreadsheet modified by me, I've added a sheet to have a summary of main and back-up picks (not to search everytime on the forum). And all is set for a 4 tournament week (standings and points summary). Let me know

Re: Challenger Challenge 2017 - Managers thread

Good morning to all, I received my workshift sheet of June. I could manage also Week #22!
I Can't for sure manage #23, I'm off to Rome; then maybe I could manage other few weeks before July/August that for me will be very complicated (impossible in August).
Luckily we have a lot of time to organize ourself

Great!
#23 should be possible for me.
In July, my workload will probably be pretty high, but if needed, I can help.
August should work perfectly for me.
Early September, I won't be able to manage.

That's perfect!! Also for me in July my job will steal me a lot of time...
We should ask other members to manage at least 1 week. So to manage not more than 1 week each one of us in July... In August I will have a month holiday! while in September I should restart easily...

Re: Challenger Challenge 2017 - Managers thread

Welcome back Toni!!
Sorry for the misunderstanding!! I made a big mistake.. I though we would have separate tournaments each week, so we have to re-touch the list!! The week I CAN'T manage is the 22nd..from 12 to 19 June.. can you do it PortlandTimbers? I could do the 23rd (19-25 june).
I will Prepare some spreadsheet, different for 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 tournaments per week and I'll send to you Toni, I thibk before the end of next week.

So what I have to do? I edit my last post, change the title when Vicenza MD is available, and mention everyone who partecipated going on on this thread, or shall I open a new one?

No problem. Yes, I can manage #22.
I'd suggest to keep the current thread.

Re: Challenger Challenge 2017 - Managers thread

Hi guys, just a question to clarify.

I've noticed that in some tournaments it is listed that the bonus for a perfect venue is 300 points and others saying 100 points. Which is it?

Originally it was just 100, but not sure if it got changed in the last couple of years.

I thought best to clarify now so there is no problem in the future

PS I will manage a week or two coming up. Just need to see how things work out for me in the next 2-3 weeks. Then I will have a good idea my capability and availability.

Re: Challenger Challenge 2017 - Managers thread

I was just thinking about previous discussions from here about the ranking system. I like the thought of a tie-break system, although not too keen on Mark's suggestion of the Back-ups counting in TB.
Perhaps, we can use the highest ranked tournament results for the CC week(s) as the TB tournament. Ie. in CC#19 Busan was the highest ranked tournament, so if tied overall, whoever did better in Busan would take the higher place. In CC#18 it was Aix-en-Provence. However, the only flaw is when multiple tournaments have the highest points ranking in the same week... then how to decide which is the TB tournament? Or only have TB in the weeks that we can?

Food for thought.
