Why do we need pool A and B?

Why not put all the teams in a hat, draw at random 2 pools if neccessary and random match-ups? With the way we keep track of stats and the fact that teams have missed so many tourney's or showed up with 6 runners, who's to say what the top 8 teams are? What is the best way to rank the teams? Hopefully we can get some ideas on here and the discussions in Brampton will be successful...

play each team once in your pool.

top 2 advance to a final 8 and go from there.

Bottom 2 in each division get 1 game against another bottom 2 team (preferably a team they haven't faced 2 or 3 times during the season).

Teams who make the finals get 6 games, semi-finals 5, quarter-finals 4, and teams eliminated after the round-robin get 4.

This theory that keeps getting bantied involving teams that "haven't brought an entire team" or "short on runners" for different tournaments. This should not be taken into consideration when putting together the final rankings for the provincials weekend. You should use the season to determine your rankings for the provincials; end of story. If you bring your "whole" team then you will most likely play better. Don't make excuses about lack of players. Guys should be available for 2-3 tournys in the summer so their team can be ranked. Come Brampton weekend each year, the discussion should be easy once you have looked at the records of who has played who.

the A and the B are because of Master's bylaws , once you have fifteen teams in a divison , you go to an A tier and a B tier for the provincials, that is the reason for the rankings.
