Hello everyone.  It is time to start thinking about the 2019 Rochester Place Wednesday Night Golf League.  Registration forms have been updated and are now available online for anyone that wants to get a head start on the registration process.

Registration Sunday will be held at Rochester Place on Sunday, April 7th at 1:00 pm.  This is the day we encourage everyone to ensure you are registered by this day or do so in person at this meeting.  This is also your opportunity to pay your league fees ($60) in person either by cash or cheque payable to “Rochester Men’s League”.  This is also the date you should pay to participate in the skins and closest to the pin competitions which are optional.  Skins and CTP occur during the regular season only.  To participate the cost is $36 for skins ($2 per weeks. X 18) and $36 for CTP (18 x $2).  So in total, if you want to pay your league fees and pay for skins and CTP you can either pay with one cheque for $132 or you can pay by cash.

The registration deadline this year is Sunday, April 21st and this is the deadline for paying your league fees as well.  Attention to Snowbirds:  If you are in Florida or elsewhere the registration deadline still applies to you.  If you have not registered and paid in advance then your name will not be included for selection in the annual draft on April 24th.

This year team selection will be made at our First Annual League Draft which will be held on Wednesday, April 24th.  Anyone registering and/or paying after this date can play as a spare member for this year.

There are lots of changes happening for 2019 and these are summarized below:

League Fees for 2019 are set at $60.  The fee for a spare player will be $40.

The opening scramble for this year will be held on Saturday, May 11th.

League nights will cover 18 weeks for the regular season starting Wednesday, May 1st and ending on Wednesday August 28th.

Playoffs will be held over two weeks, September 4th and 11th.  Playoff finals will conclude the playoffs on Wednesday, September 18th.  

The Final Day Banquet and League Flight Championships are set for Sunday, September 22nd. 

Team selections for the 2019 season will be done through a draft process.  We will be holding the league at a maximum of 26 teams of 5 players which is the same amount we had in 2018.

We will be holding our First Annual Draft Night on Wednesday, April 24th where team selection will occur.  Team selection by round will be based on previous years attendance.

Here are the details on how the draft will be managed:

TEAM SELECTION DURING ANNUAL DRAFT

ALL LEAGUE PLAYERS WILL BE PLACED INTO POOLS BASED ON LEAGUE ATTENDANCE FROM THE PREVIOUS SEASON.

POOL A PLAYERS WILL BE MADE UP OF PLAYERS WITH THE HIGHEST LEAGUE ATTENDANCE FROM THE PREVIOUS SEASON.

THE FIRST PLAYER ON EACH TEAM WILL BE INVITED BY THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE TO ACT AS CAPTAIN AND ATTEND THE ANNUAL DRAFT MEETING TO SELECT THE REMAINING TEAM MEMBERS;

ON LEAGUE DRAFT NIGHT THE ORDER OF SELECTION FOR THE FIRST ROUND WILL BE DETERMINED BY PICKING NUMBERS FROM A HAT;

BASED ON THIS PRIORITY, EACH TEAM WILL SELECT ONE PLAYER FROM POOL A;

PLAYERS WITH THE NEXT HIGHEST ATTENDANCE FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR WILL BE PLACED INTO POOL B;

SECOND ROUND SELECTIONS WILL BE MADE BY THE CAPTAINS IN REVERSE ORDER SELECTING FIRST BY THE CAPTAIN THAT HAD THE HIGHEST DRAFT NUMBER IN THE FIRST ROUND AND CONTINUING UP UNTIL THE TEAM THAT SELECTED FIRST IN THE FIRST ROUND GOES LAST IN THE SECOND ROUND;

PLAYERS WITH THE NEXT HIGHEST ATTENDANCE FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR WILL BE PLACED INTO POOL C;

FOLLOWING THE SAME PRIORITY USED IN ROUND ONE, PLAYERS WILL BE SELECTED IN ROUND THREE FROM POOL C;

POOL D WILL CONSIST OF ANY REMAINING PLAYERS FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR NOT YET SELECTED THROUGH THE FIRST THREE ROUNDS.  ANY NEW PLAYERS THAT HAVE SIGNED UP WILL ALSO BE INCLUDED IN POOL D;

USING THE SAME PRIORITY USED DURING ROUND TWO, EACH CAPTAIN WILL SELECT THE FINAL PLAYER FOR THEIR TEAM.

ANY PLAYERS REMAINING IN POOL D WILL BECOME SPARES FOR THE CURRENT SEASON.  PLAYERS NOT SELECTED CAN IMPROVE THEIR CHANCES OF SELECTION THE FOLLOWING SEASON BY INCREASING THEIR ATTENDANCE DURING THE CURRENT YEAR.
