View Full Version : Question for APA players/operators

10-17-2002, 12:36 PM
Recently our league operator has had less personal input concerning players' handicaps and the national office has assumed more control. Subsequently we have had many players' handicaps jacked up to the next level, even players with losing records. One of our players went to a 5 with a record of 8-12 in her last 20 matches. That was bad enough but then another guy went to a 5 with a record of 7-13 in his last 20. We now have six 5's, one 4, and one 3 /ccboard/images/icons/tongue.gif. So our 3 has to play EVERY week. If anybody else goes up we're going to have a problem fielding a team (the limit is 23 on any given night) It's like a nightmare /ccboard/images/icons/tongue.gif.

Is this happening elsewhere in the country?

Are they doing this to break up the teams so we'll have to recruit more lesser-skilled players to add to their numbers?

Is it because we have won first place in our division 3 of the last 5 sessions?

We've never been to Vegas and we don't sandbag.

I'm ready to quit if this keeps up. Seriously. This is BS

hi wally, who said apa has removed or lessened leauge operater imput? i would be more inclined to believe one or more teams complained and he raised level. on a handicaped based leauge three out of five is high odds! mho.
p.s. this is our last apa session, our leauge is all going to tap.. hopefully it will be better.. not a move against apa just leauge operater.. k
