I like the idea of the CTR very, very much, but I have to agree with Andy that it might be better to scrap it altogether. I cannot think of any way in which to ensure equal numbers of players show up for each team unless it's not an event that's open to everybody. I remember last year the North had 6 players--far fewer than the next fewest--and everyone was scrambling for ways to even the teams. What resulted was switching players around so it could be more "fair," but try telling whichever team lost Geoff that it was fair. If the event is run so that the captains pick their teams like the Ryder Cup, perhaps the event can run more smoothly. That way, if a team's members don't show up in proper numbers, it is their own fault and the other teams will not be responsible for trying to play musical chairs with the rest of their players.
I also believe it will be difficult to organize any league vs. league event because people can play any number of different leagues on different nights. I mean, if I play Endicott on Mondays, CC on Wednesdays, and the nooner every weekend at JB, I'd have a pretty sound argument to play on any of those teams. And as a result of my participation, any one of those teams could lose!
With all that said, is there any chance there are leftover Gateway putters from last year's CTR? I really need some more of those.
Everybody just cool out.
