3rd Round  2011 GAYP Nationals

Total number of players was 23 - first time & lowest in history. We experienced the same thing APCA did from 72 in 2010 in Durham, NC to 39 this year in Worthington, OH.  46% non-attendance.  ACF had 45 at the 2010 Nationals in Springfield, IL.  We experienced a 49% nonappearance.
In the business meeting players decided (maybe last time) to use 3 Divisions this year as it was announced, but number of rounds and days will be reduce.
10 players registered in Master, 9 in Major and 4 in Minors.
In all three Division played 10 rounds in 4 days, in this format 2+3+3+2 rounds from Tuesday thru Friday at 4 hours per round.
In Master and Majors we voted to play 1 Robin Round tournament (9 rounds) + 1 Repair Round.
In Minors will play 3 Round Robin sessions + 1 Repair round.
