Actually annual members get 7 chances to qualify for the spring final as opposed to monthly members who get 3 chances not counting last chance events. The summer final and winter final will see monthly members get an extra round 2 event. This is because the spring final did not include the December results to make a round 2 in January as we had not decided on all the rules and qualifications.

So you can see that annual members will normally get double the chances of getting a D qualification than monthly members.

that's becaue there is no round 2 in january, but there is a annual event.

take the free extra chance aaron, there aren't too many free things left in this world.

also, there are only 7 D's in spring and 8 in summer and winter?
doesn't make sence to me

Freddie, you just concentrate on the immediate task at hand. That is, to make the money in the events you play in Tunica over the coming 2 weeks. I think you are going to be the success story of the WPO.

Pressure, what do you mean

My take on the extra chances - Fri Jan 03, 2003, 01:13 PM

I think kev was referring to extra chances each month if the annual members also qualify through the league structure. I agree that there should be a regular qualifier in Jan. based on Dec. results. However, the school could be using the annual members event as a marketing tool. If this is the case, I hope it works.

I don't think that sounds right Kevin - I looked at the information.
Monthly member get a round 2 in February, March and April making 3 chances.
Annual members get these same 3 chances and 4 annual members events totalling 7 chances
This is because the December league qualification does not count as it started before we announced the Big One 3.
So for the Summer and Winter finals monthly members will get 4 chances and annual will get those same 4 plus the 4 annual only members qualification chances which totals 8 chances.
This is exactly double the chances.
I hope this clears up your misunderstanding hazy.

In my opinion annual member's should gain a small advantage in qualifying. More opportunities seems to be a fair incentive to get members to pay for the year in advance.

At least everyone has a chance to qualify for the same X, A, B, C & Ds. They could have made only annual members eligible for a D qualification.

annaul members v monthly membership

here we go again

yes monthly members pay more but in long run the school gets less from them

1) each time they charge the creit card they have to pay a fee.
2) a member of staff has to spend time putting thru all the transactions each month.

its in PSO intrest to get as many members on long term deals as possible so annaul members get a small perk.

monthly members might pay more over 12 months but there monetary contribution to the school is not greater after all costs are deducted.
