SPECIAL NOTICE TO ALL PLAYERS

THE HAFA ADAI CLASSIC BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS ADOPTED THE FOLLOWING:  FLOATING HANDICAP RANGE ADJUSTMENT RULE.

THIS IS AN ALTERNATE METHOD OF FLIGHT ASSIGNMENTS FOR PLAYERS.  

SHOULD THERE BE A SHORTAGE OF PLAYERS IN ANY GIVEN FLIGHT (EXAMPLE:  ONLY 10 REGISTERED PLAYERS IN THE “A” FLIGHT) 

THE FLIGHT HANDICAP RANGE MAY BE ADJUSTED TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PLAYERS IN THIS COMPETITIVE CATEGORY BY SETTING THE FLIGHT HANDICAP RANGE, AS AN EXAMPLE FROM: 0-11 TO 5-15.  

EFFECTIVELY THIS WILL MOVE (FOR EXAMPLE) PLAYERS WITH A HANDICAP OF 13-15 FROM THE “B” FLIGHT TO THE “A” FLIGHT.  WHICH MEANS THAT THESE PLAYERS MOVED FROM THE “B” FLIGHT WITH THE LOWEST HANDICAP RANGE, WILL NOW ENJOY THE HIGHEST HANDICAP RANGE IN THE “A” FLIGHT. 

THIS WILL ALLOW EACH FLIGHT TO HAVE A FAIR DISPERSION OF COMPETING PLAYERS WITHIN EACH FLIGHT.  

A FORM OF THIS ACTION WILL BE TAKEN BY THE HOST CLUB ONLY WHEN THE REGISTERED NUMBERS FOR ANY AFFECTED FLIGHT WARRANTS IT.  

WHEN APPLIED, THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE “FLOATING HANDICAP RANGE” METHOD WILL BE APPLIED ACROSS ALL COMPETITIVE FLIGHTS (A-D).  

TO HELP UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS FAIR; IF YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT ONLY 10 PLAYERS IN THE “A” FLIGHT ARE PLAYING FOR THE SAME AMOUNT OF WINNINGS AS 40 PLAYERS ARE IN EACH OF THE “B” “C” AND “D” FLIGHTS, THERE IS SOMETHING FUNDAMENTALLY UNFAIR ABOUT THE LACK OF COMPETITION IN THE “A” FLIGHT.  INCREASING THE NUMBER OF PLAYERS IN THE “A” FLIGHT WILL ADD COMPETITION IN THAT FLIGHT TO WIN THE 1ST, 2ND, 3RD OR 4TH PLACE PRIZE MONEY.
