Beginners & Advanced Beginner 2.5 Round Robin
Jul 26 @ 8:00 am
Beginners & Advanced Beginner 2.5 Round Robin

New Summer Hours

Two Round Robins same time same day!

Beginners and an additional Round Robin for 2.5 players 

Chose your level using the guidelines below

FOR MEMBERS ONLY: We will hold a Round Robin for those of you that are new to the game and also a Round robin for a group that calls themselves “Advanced Beginners”. Those are people who feel they are no longer at the beginning stages of learning but not quite up to an intermediate play grade.

It will be conducted the same as the other Round Robins i.e. 24 players, except that the skill set to qualify for this group will be at a 2.5 level. Levels only go up to 5.0 or PRO level. We have listed the abilities of the 2.5 level below for your review.

Participating players should have ALL abilities up to the 2.0 level and at least a few in the 2.5 level to participate. 

The IFP Rating System has been created to help describe differences in the various skill levels.
