7) MCCU County ChampionshipSeparate documents are circulated concerning advice for captains - proposals from Worcestershire, some alternative proposals from the Events Director were held over from the 2011 AGM. Rule changes proposed by the Events Director and/or County Team Controller are as follows – text in red refers to additions, text in green to deletions
Rule 14 If two teams in the same zone tie on points for an ECF qualification place, the winner of the tie shall be the winner of the match played between the two teams involved. In the event of that match having been a tie, the tie shall be resolved by firstly board count and then by the elimination of the lowest board until a result is reached. If all boards are drawn, the match shall be awarded to the team which had black on the odd numbered boards. the result shall be resolved in favour of the team with the best percentage of aggregate score against the other teams in the same zone ignoring all the scores of a county which has defaulted over half its matches. In the event of this calculation not resolving the tie then the result of the tied match between the two teams shall be broken by use of the board count rule, and if still equal the elimination rule shall apply until the scores are unequal.
Rule 15 In the event of a tie on points between three or more teams for first an ECF qualifying place, places shall be decided by reference to the aggregate scores between the teams concerned. First place will be awarded to the team with the best percentage of aggregate score against the other counties concerned in the tie, second place to the next best score and so on. In the event of this procedure not producing a clear winner, then the tie shall be resolved by reference to board count in the matches between the tied teams and then by the elimination of the lowest board in each match until a result is reached. in favour of the county with the best percentage aggregate score of all other counties in the zone. If the application of the above rule still fails to break the triple (or greater) tie, a jamboree play-off shall be held. Where this rule provides a clear winner, but leaves a tie for other places rule 15 will continue to be applied until or unless only 2 teams are tied, when rule 14 will apply.
The increased incidence of conceded matches is of some concern under the existing rules. The changes are designed to completely remove the effect of such matches from the outcome, leaving it squarely related to the matches between the tied teams. As a result teams will be neither advantaged nor disadvantaged by the inclusion or exclusion of conceded matches.
Rule 21 Grading limits apply at the start of each season and will be taken from the grading list (excluding the rapidplay list) current at September 1st. Subsequent grading lists will be used to assist in placing players in board order but not to determine eligibility. latest national grading list (excluding the rapid play list).
Some feel the existing rule to be a little ambigous. The revised wording removes any hint of this.
