Quarterback Challenge
1General
a) $1 from every fee collected will be placed in a pool that shall be referred to as the Quarterback Challenge pool (QBCP).
b) The QBCP will be awarded on the third of every three week cycle according to the cycle as established in the Schedule of Events
c) Only players participating in every event of a three week cycle shall be considered eligible for a share of the QBCP for that cycle.
d) The QBCP pool will be divided into up to four (4) sub pools, each sub pool ideally containing an equal number players, and the sub pools will be known as the A, B, C, and D pools.
e) The minimum pool size shall be four (4) players.
f) Players will be divided into pools according to their handicaps.
g) Players without handicaps before the third round will, by default, be grouped into the top pool. The coordinator can, at their discretion, place players without handicaps in other pools if doing so does not put other players in that pool at an anticipated disadvantage, and if doing so provides for the creation of a greater number of pools.
h) Where four or more women are eligible for a share of the QBCP for any given cycle, they shall have the option to form a woman-only pool or pools provided said pool or pools include(s) at least four women per pool.
i) Any woman may waive their right to participate in a woman-only pool and in doing so will participate in the pool that corresponds to their handicap as outlined above.
j) Where a womens' pool is created, this pool shall replace a regular pool. The creation of womens' pools does not increase the maximum number of pools beyond four (4).
k) Special consideration shall be given to the formation of the first womens' pool: where there are four or more women, they may form a pool regardless of the number of player eligible for each of the other pools. Before a second womens' pool is formed, each pool shall have an equitable number of eligible players.



2 Creation of Pools
a) The coordinator will strive to create the maximum number of pools conforming to the limitations above.
b) With the exception of the first womens' pool, pools are formed by determining cutoff handicaps. All players with the cutoff handicap or lower move to the more competitive pool.
c) The preferred method of assigning players to pools is to determine the maximum possible number of pools for the number of QBCP eligible players and assigning cutoffs that maximize the number of pools, given the limitations above.
d) Ideally, the pools will be created by determining the median handicap of the players eligible (players without handicaps being assigned a handicap of 0 unless placing them in another pool is otherwise advantageous), with those players at or below the median forming the A and B pools, and those above forming the C and D pools. Of the A and B pool players, the median is taken again, and the A and B pools set. The process if repeated for the C and D pools.
e) Because multiple players may have identical handicaps, rigidly setting cutoff handicaps may move a larger number of players into a higher pool, and reduce the number of pools because there are no longer four eligible players left to create another pool. In this case, the determination of a cutoff may take any form that provides the maximum number of pools, each pool having at least the minimum number of players, provided it conforms to the specifications above.

2. Creation of Pools:

The original rules set is written poorly. I appreciate all of the confusion they have caused.

As a matter of clarification, these are the priorities, in order, that are to be followed in forming pools:

1) Where a pool may be made entirely of women, the top female competitors form their own pool.
2) Players with tied handicaps play in the same pool.
3) Maximize the number of pools. (Max number of pools = # Players div 4)
4) Players without handicaps play in the "A" pool.
5) Pools are to be equal in size, or vary by a single player. (extra players = # Players mod 4)
6) "A" pool gets the first "extra" player, "B" pool get the next, and so on, until all pools have the same number of players.

The TD is obliged to strive towards a pool formation that complies with the higher priority over the lower one.
