I'm going to get this party started and not hold you all up.

Not a shock at all.

@asuclay - You are up.

sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, but if there's a B east and B west, does that mean we are separate leagues? do we play an interlocking schedule or are we really just two separate versions of B league?

Separate. Cuts down on the number of people you need to play against, so you play more games vs each person rather than 1 or 2 against a lot of people. Easier to get people to finish their schedule.

Alright, cool. what's the thinking on doing it this way instead of trying to separate by skill and having A-B-C-D?

Maybe Halifax could answer better, but I would say.. it's like a bell curve, so a lot of the B guys are relatively close? ALthough I think we did do a D league in the past at some point. But like the bottom few "B" guys and top few "C" guys are going to be basically the same skill level (whereas A vs B is usually fairly clear-cut except 1 or 2 guys).

PS I checked just now and there will be a B-West champ vs B-East champ final series.

yeah, i agree separating all of them could be tough at this point. However, maybe after a full season has been played, we could.

You also don't want a 26 team league -- those bottom tier teams really get tough to use.  One time we mixed everyone together, gave the C guys top picks, B next and the A's had the bottom teams.  That's also interesting if the numbers work out, but we had a lot of people this bonus summer season!

The East/West geographical split also helps with schedule completion a bit since fewer people have that 3 time-zone disparity
