Yes they were allowed to enter, they chose not to do so.

No-one is suggesting that UKC events count towards POY rankings - they reflect the end of the season and should not carry through to next year, but they should contribute to ranking status for eligibility purposes, particularly re Bonus Points which reflect the long match formats.

Boris, please stop obfuscating.

The UKC should not be ranked because:
1) the lack of prior expectation or announcement that it would be ranked
2) of restrictions placed upon entry for non UK nationals
3) the fact that people were prevented from entering OS and OD if they did not make it through the qualifying event

This should be voted on by the committee if agreement is not apparent.

No time to update rankings, but if UKC OS/OD included Tom Curtis goes SP on Garlando, no other changes at present. Run out of time for today...

I think it should be ranked because Dave Zeeman is only 23 points away from leaving the Pro category and moving to Pro Master on Garlando which will remove him from Pro Doubles and Singles at the Reading event

lol Rob, I don't care about my rankings, I doubt I did well enough at UKC to get any points, and I'm not going to Reading. I rant from principle not personal interest (which, I concede, will coincide with my personal interest about 50% of the time).

By the way, I did think it was wrong that I couldn't play Pro-Am on Garlando at UKC just because I am Pro Master on Tornado. I thought that the "highest rank on any table" rule should only apply to the multi-table events.

Thank you smart ass! lol

Yeah Dave Zee wants to remain Pro for Keele

A little birdy has told me he even has his partner sorted and will work furiously to ensure the rankings remain the same till after that event.

I think Zee should be punished as he also should be for arguing the committee into allowing those sub standard Bonzini's into the UK Championships.

We are still awaiting one vote on the committee before a decision is made on ranking the UKC OS/OD. Everything is ready to go as soon as the decision is made.

My mistake, Tom Curtis goes SP on Garlando with or without OS/OD included, quite a few other potential changes in rank (both ways!).

The committee decision was narrowly in favour of ranking all events at the UKC.

You may regret saying that when you see the Keele entry fees.

Hey! Keele semi-pro entry fees are very reasonable. Certainly on par with the cheapest I've ever paid.

I won't contest that, but they are a significant amount more than amateur...

It was just a facetious observation - Keele will be well worth the money.
