"Hello Freestate friends. The first season is coming to an end and its time to clear your calender and make plans for the Freestate Doubles Championship.
First let me thank the TDs from each league for providing scores each week to keep this going and to the players who kept showing up in big numbers.
The Freestate Doubles Championship will be held the first Sunday in November (the 6th) at Patapsco State Park. Registration will start at 9:30 and play begins at 10:30. Fee to play is $4. We will play the green monster. The top 2 teams will play a final 9.
There will be 2 divisions. Champions and field.
To qualify for the Champions division a player must finish in the top 4 of a weekly event or in the top 20 for Freestate standings. (since the calvert leagues do not post points on dgs the league leaders will be determined using the scarboro method. one win = one point) League leaders will be paired by their rankings. So 1st and 2nd will be paired as will 3rd and 4th. This allows each league to be represented by 2 teams. Other teams in the Champions division will be paired randomly.
The field division is for players who have participated regularly but don’t meet the criteria for the Champions division. To qualify for the field a player must participated in one of the weekly doubles events this year. All teams will be paired randomly.
Let me know if you have any questions. See you there.
I spoke with cooker @ discoutfitters and he’s making us some sweet trophies. And giving us a discount to boot. Thanks B!
Two weeks to go…"
