 Motion to be put to the meeting - AGM Monday 30th March at 7pm

I would like to propose a motion for the forthcoming AGM that the format of annual club championship be amended as follows:-

To be run over two weeks with a qualifying event the first week.

The top half of the field qualify for the final, rounded to the nearest number of full tables, up or down. If there are more than 10 tables the first week then only the top ten pairs qualify.

In the second week, numbers permitting, two separate Howell events are held, the final and the plate. If numbers do not permit two separate events then one Howell event is held but for the purposes of deciding the winners of each event only their scores against opponents in the same competition are counted. For example week 1 there are 8 tables then the final is competed for by 8 pairs. If in week two there are only six tables then there is one Howell event only and the Champions are those who have the best score against their seven other final opponents and the plate will be competed for by the winners of the other four pairs.

The format for the second week should be decided by the committee on the evening with input from the director.

Scores from the first week are not carried forward.

For NGS and masterpoint purposes the results of the single movement would be sent to the EBU and there could be a situation where the winners of the second week would not win the title as they had failed to qualify in the first week. There could also be a situation where the winners of the second week single event were finalists but fail to win the title as their scores against competing finalists were not as good as they were against plate players. But this does the restore the competition to the way that it used to be played.

A counter proposal could be to decide it over four separate nights, spread evenly through the year, where the winners are those pairs with the three best scores. This is the way that MK decide their club champions. Wardown base their competition on a ladder basis over the year and I am unable to determine how Bedford organise their competition.
