When is the new grading list coming out?

Post by Alex Holowczak » Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:15 am

It's June 25th, and no one has asked me this yet. Usually requests flood in from the middle of May. Is this a record?

Perhaps it is because they are ALL planning to be at the BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS in NORTH SHIELDS on July 22nd, when they know the new grades will be on the wallcharts there.

Get yourselves entered soon, before the July 2nd deadline for a price hike, and enjoy a real Northumbrian welcome!!

If you are suffering from withdrawal symptoms I'm sure a deluge of requests could be arranged :twisted:

To ask a different question...

Will the results of the finals of the 2011-12 ECF County Championships (7th July) be graded in the July 2012 list or the January 2013 list? I presume the latter (as I presume was done for the semi-finals as well in previous years when the grading list was calculated a month earlier), but wondered if there was any special exception made for this.

Well it's still not out yet Alex.... perhaps you meant July 25th? :wink:

The 2012 Finals will be graded in the January 2013 grading list, because they're played on July 7th, and the cutoff is June 30th.

I thought this was unnecessary, and proposed to Council that in 2012/13, the final be brought forward a week in order to get them all into the same grading list. Instead, Council decided to reject this, and instead decided to have a system whereby the Finals count towards that year's July list instead. This didn't please the Grading Administrator when he found out about it. He was sat in the room when this was being discussed, but completely missed it, otherwise he would have voiced his objection then.

Perhaps Council members take it in turns to snooze during these meetings?!! :oops:

So when are the new grades coming out? :wink:

Do I take it then, that the ECF Counties Preliminary, Quarter-final and Semi-final rounds will be graded in the July 2012 list, separately from the Final?
