IM B-BALL RULES
Thursday, December 16, 2004
I registered us for the Open division. That division has no restriction on roster size or composition, so we'll be playing teams composed of faculty/staff, grad students, and miscellaneous groups like ourselves. One caveat is that there are no rules requiring specific numbers of women to play on a team. That means that other teams are not required to play women against our women. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
I attended the captains' meeting last week, and nothing was really discussed other than the rules and regulations. Please take a look at the IM policies. Everybody will be required to sign the traditional waiver before playing the first game (your first game, not team's first game). Our bond of $100 is fully refundable, provided we meet all of the requirements. If we forfeit one game, we get $50 back. Two games costs us all $100. More on that below.
I should get the schedule sometime over winter break. Once I do, I'll forward it to everyone. Our games will be on Monday or Tuesday nights. If you cannot make the games due to your schedule, let me know, and I'll refund your $10. Or, if you're not comfortable playing with/without women, I'll also refund your $10. On a week-to-week basis, if you cannot make it to a game, let me know by 2PM on FRIDAY the week before the game. I'll need to inform the IM office if we cannot make our game, so we don't get stuck with a "forfeit."
Attached you'll find a roster of our team. It contains the usual contact info fields as well as the risk-sharing model that I've developed. Highlighted dollar amounts mean that I have the money in hand or have been told by Dr. Purpura that he has it in hand. Others are IOUs that I expect to collect from each of you. In the model, I've included a column calculating how much money everyone should be refunded. If you are "absent" from a game and cost us a "forfeit," you get nada. Everyone else will get a proportionate share back. In the model, I've used Greg, Eleni, and myself as forfeit examples. Please feel free to play with it as you please, but I think it's sound. Let me know if you have any questions.
Please reply to this message indicating that you've read, understood, and agree to the IM rules and the redistribution model.
I look forward to playing with everyone.
