Senior Conditions of Contest Approval VOTE
I would point out that most of the seeding weight that attached to performance in Senior events has been removed. There used to be , but are no longer, seeding points for performance in NABC senior events, like the Baze Senior KO, and the NABC senior Swiss.
Senior COC issues with fewer teams entering
Some options to consider (not necessarily my choices...) 1) Straight to KO if exactly 8 teams enter or if exactly 16 teams enter. (We already go straight to KO with 4 teams.) 2) Qualify 8 teams from the RR if exactly 9 teams enter. That's what we've done ...

A great friend, a great player, a great teammate, and a wonderful person. A sad loss. RIP.
