Discuss a Tardiness Penalty
I completely agree. The directors are excellent. That is not the issue. I would like to get their input before casting a vote on how to proceed. My sense is that if the rules as Peter points out have been in place but are not currently being enforced, then we ...
Discuss a Tardiness Penalty
Sounds like Michael has outlined an excellent approach, but without specific changes in our enforcement protocols, we aren’t going to be any better off. Should the discussion be around how to make these necessary changes in enforcement?
Frivolous Appeal Penalty VOTE
There are two issues here, as I see it. First, there is a practical matter. As Jan stated in her initial thread on June 12, “There is a serious downside to us from having silly appeals - we have to find a committee and provide information to the committee, which takes ...
Frivolous Appeal Penalty VOTE

Frivolous Appeal Penalty GCOC section
Hi Dave, I was thinking about the NFL when considering how to deal with rather subjective terms as “frivolous” or “ridiculous”. I was also thinking how we could fairly punish a player for protesting a ruling that he/she may completely be unfair - even though a committee or a random ...
Frivolous Appeal Penalty GCOC section
The easiest thing is to prohibit a player who has filed a protest that was unanimously rejected from submitting another protest - under any circumstances - for the duration of the competition.
How the matches are set in the senior trials
Mike, Thanks for this great add as well as for your insights into the extensive work behind the scenes that factored into the formulation of the current policy. It is sad that we have to keep an eye on dumping and other unethical aspects of the game that have emerged ...
How the matches are set in the senior trials
I also agree, Dave, but we have to use good judgment. Our aim has to be to encourage increased participation while attempting to ensure the best teams possible - within reason - advance to represent the USA in the World Championships. In my opinion, we must change the current Conditions of Contest ...
