get there

Ditto - why does the IGC handicapping committee or its chairman
not see this? Was there any consultation with competitors this
new handicap list? Would have been the polite thing to do?

IGC handicap list is made by handicap committee. IGC delegates do not get to vote, discuss or even see the handicap list before publication, even if they wanted to. It is totally in the control of committee members.

Hi Evan -
I did say that, and I was wrong. When I wrote that on October 3, the
consensus of the Bureau seemed to be leaning toward reverting to the
old list until the new one could be reviewed.

But it didn't turn out that way.

I wrote a report to SSA:


P.S. It's "Delegate," not "rep"

Our IGC rep sez: "That handicap list is getting un-published, today."

I hope he wasn't puttin' me on.

Evan Ludeman / T8
