Several new pages have been added to the site! Some are
pages from the old site which have been updated and enhanced, and
others are entirely new. They are all described below.
Club Outcomes - A list of possible
outcomes for four-player Calgary club groups. Purely for the
ultra-curious. This is a straight conversion of the page from the
old site that I hope to further update soon.
Club Simulation - This is a
hypothetical club session at the Calgary Scrabble® Group that
helps to illustrate how our ladder system works. It should be
useful for prospective new members and current members who aren't
entirely sure how our system works. This is also a conversion of
an old site page, however the final night's fictional ladder has
been corrected to reflect proper results.
How to Work Out Ratings - I am
pleased to introduce the online version of my guide for
approximating ratings after a tournament. I wrote this about a
year ago for club members, and it served to largely demystify the
rating system for our members. Unlike other ratings explanations,
it does not skimp on detail yet is written in easy-to-understand
language. For club members that have the old guide, the new web
version features the addition of feedback points and information
about unrated players. It also features links to other rating
Mini-Tournament Division Plan - To
hopefully avoid any controversy regarding mini-tournament
divisions, a draft of the official division plan has been placed
online. It is simply a chart listing the number of players in each
division for 8-47 players. NOTE: Because this page is to
reflect the official plan, I will be showing it to the other
directors for approval later this week. Until then, please
consider this page tentative.
