FHC Points System
Managers, we are always trying to find a better way to do anything and everything. Saying that, it is very important that if you have a better way of doing things, contact me or your Area Director. Some of you have contacted members of the Board, but only to suggest you do not agree with the way we do our Point System. We have a Points and Ranking Committee made up of five Board Members, and they look at the team points and rankings after every tournament.
On many occasions, teams miss a tournament or two, but are still given points so they are forced to compete with teams where the Committee feels they should fall and not beat up on teams in a lower bracket. Some of you have suggested that teams are rewarded for not playing. That is just not true. We do make mistakes, but correct the situation when we are notified about a specific problem.
It is our goal to make sure each team is on the proper competitive level, to make sure that each bracket is as even as possible, and not allow teams to drop down just so they can win a t-shirt. By not adding points to teams that do not play creates that competitive imbalance. We want every team to have a fair chance to win a bracket, and to move up the rankings as well.
As far as having an opportunity to win the "Team of the Year" award for a given year, the points that are adjusted to keep the proper competitive balance are not counted.
Have a great day and we will see you at the ball park.
