Handicap Tournament

Over several years the number of players wishing to play Postal pairings has declined.  As a consequence it has become virtually impossible for a postal player to meet the minimum result criteria to be included in the final table.

After much discussion it has been decided that the Handicap will  move to the webserver for the start of the new season. We have trialled some webserver pairings this season and they have proved successful.
