PROPOSAL

Iain Gillies, Elaine Campbell, Linda Gillies and I have, over the past few weekends, looked at the Scottish ladies tour and we have come up with the following proposal for the 2010 series.

This is a tour that I feel will continue to allow us to have much needed top class match practice whilst also offering good value for money and with this year’s changes allow a fairer distribution of prize money.

Our proposal includes a fifth event (cost £10.00) where no ladies A team players (past or present, from any Country) will be eligible to enter. This further aligns the ladies tour structure with that of the Scottish Pool Association’s Individual Membership.

PROPOSED DETAILS:

1. Entry for the 2010 Scottish ladies tour will be £85.00. This is broken down as follows:-
Registration fee £ 25.00
Events 1-4 (£15 per event) £ 60.00
TOTAL COST: £ 85.00

Event five as detailed above will cost eligible players £10.00 to enter, there will also be money added from the main tour pot.

2. Deposit of £45.00 is required by 27th February, 2010 this will secure your entry into the
tour. Event one will be held in March, 2010.

3. The balance of £40.00 must be paid at the first event. Any player not fully paid up by
this event will be unable to compete until their total entry fee is paid.

4. If a new player wishes to join the tour at event two, the reduced entry fee of £75.00
must be paid prior to competing.

5. If a new player wishes to join the tour at event three, the reduced entry fee of £65.00
must be paid prior to competing.

6. No new players will be accepted after event three – no exceptions.

7. Ranking points – based on 32 entries: Ranking points – based on 33 – 64 entries:
Winner: 9 points Winner: 10 points
Runner-up: 7 points Runner-up: 8 points
Semi-finalist: 6 points Semi-finalist: 7 points
Quarter-finalist: 5 points Quarter-finalist: 6 points
Last 16: 4 points Last 16: 5 points
Last 32: 3 points Last 32: 4 points
Being a member: 1 point Last 64: 3 points
Being a member: 1 point



8. All draws are ranked, based on a two year ranking system.

9. As with the Scottish Ladies Singles, this tour is compulsory for players who wish to be
considered for selection into any of the ladies international teams. Attendance is
required at 50% of the tour events being run.

Tour Event 2:

sounds like it changing to more like the IM but yeah i do agree that one event should be A team free to allow others to gain a chance of winning therefore boosting their confidence too.

Can only be a good thing x

All sounds good Yvo, particularly the 5th event for non-A players. Will you still have the wildcard option should you need it? Obviously from my point of view that may be relevant.
There's always a finish!

Of course I do but im sure you will make two of them, we will sit down and work out dates to suit both your tour and this one.

It's not 2 events though is it, including the Scottish it's 3 times a year coming to Scotland which doesn't provide any real time with family. Chances are i will make the 3 but who knows what's in store to claim money, time, etc. Bearing in mind i also play in my Grand Prix amongst other things and that's before you talk about county, league etc lol - good grief man! not a clue!!

Sounds good Sir, like the idea of the 5th event (even tho i won't be eligible) it is great for the other players to have a top chance of winning

Will the events be played in Rileys again or independent clubs?

Good point Steenie. It'd be interesting to see what Riley's would be prepared to offer us in comparison to the likes of Daz at Hustler's, Gary at Cue Here and the Corner Pocket etc. Lots of good venues around just now who's tables and bar prices are a damn sight better than Riley's.

I think it makes a lot of sense to adapt our tour so that it runs more like the IM. Its obviously a format that works.

Will the scottish then be an event which carries ranking points and will it mean there would be no ranking points for event 5?

Last thing... Not trying to pick fault, or reduce the entry, but if we are to adopt the IM format will English and Welsh (or any other nationality) players be allowed to enter?

No, the Scottish wont carry ranking points - we didnt tink this was viable as any tour player could be knocked out by someone not in the tour and had entered the scottish.

Regarding player eligibility, we are still talking about that.

Venue, Ross has contacted Howard and he is interested in hosting out events next year again, I have also briefly spoken to Daz and will have a chat with other venues before I make up my mind where the tours are being held.

The only issue i would potentially have would be on the lump sum payments. I would prefer to be able to spread the payments as i have done this year if possible.

In fairness of Yvonne I think there has to be an upfront financial committment though, otherwise you are less inclined to bother and the "drop off" rate is much higher. We have until February to find £45 and then until the 1st event for the remaining £40 so it's not too bad, maybe see if you can get your local or someone (mum in my experience lol) to sponsor you?

I understand this completely, the new format helps me a great deal as it means all the cash is in and also saves me an hour or so chasing money - easier all round.

I didnt actually pick up on this till i read pollys post. £45 at end of Feb then £40 at first tour in March. For me this would come from my February wage so i would have to pay the £85 in full at the end of February, probably the same as a lot of people.

Its a struggle for everyone financially at the moment but i have not long moved into a new flat and im finding it extrememly difficult just to pay the bills and feed myself let alone pay £85 straight off my wage to play pool as much as i would love to be able to. As for a sponsor, there is no chance.

I understand why it is better to pay it up front as it saves yourself a lot of hassle chasing people for money (and i know im one of the culprits!) and it would ensure more people at each tour which would be fantastic but people will struggle with this. If this is the case i will not be able to play in the tour next year.

With my Grand Prix Series its going to be deposit of half by 1st event, balance paid by 2nd event, maybe that'd help? Why would it be your February pay Baps, there's 3 or 4 pays between now and the 1st event?

Yes but there is going to be Christmas in between now and then which every penny is going to. Januarys pay will be going towards my boyfriend and my best friends 21st which are both in February.

I dont mean to sound like a tight arse coz if i had the money it wouldnt be a problem and im not having a go at you or Yvo Flowers but i just cant afford to keep paying all this money for pool - especially when i cant even afford to practice so im not even getting anywhere!

Don't be daft, don't think you're a tight arse, we all know the feeling. The natural progression with pool (just to save you the time) would be to distance yourself from your family cos you never see them, dump your boyfriend so no presents required and maybe set him up with your best friend to keep her happy - simples lol!
