I thought the points from the D state were going to count towards seeding for this tournament??

That's what I was told and the only reason we signed up today.

Subject: Tournament Points

Wendi,

My name is Tom Filgate, I am a director in NYD. I have a question regarding points for teams headed to worlds.

Our D state tournament and D National tournament were both rained out, and due to conflicts, the only weekend we can make them up is 9/10-11. Some of the local E teams would like to participate to earn additional points, but they want to be sure those point totals will count towards their world seeding. Since the world tournament is the following weekend, will these points be able to count towards the bracket placement?

The teams just want to be sure that any points they earn as of Sunday 9/11 will count towards their seeding, can you get back to me and let me know if this is the case?

thanks
Tom Filgate

This email was just sent:

Hello Wendi,

Back on 8/30 you and I had an email communication regarding points for teams headed to E worlds. I received an email response from you stating that E teams would have any points earned today (9/11) count towards their world seeding. As you may remember, I mentioned our D state tournament was today and teams participating wanted to be sure their points would count.

Now, it seems the bracket has been released tonight and those teams are not being given credit for the points earned from today, as we have not yet entered the results.

Can you please look into getting this corrected? We have teams whose participation today was based solely on the word that the points they earned would count in the seeding and we want to make sure we are not deceiving our customers/teams.

Thanks,

Tom Filgate

Thanks Tom. If they arent going to correct it, can I email her for a refund of the tourney fee?

That's up to you. I'm sure she will say something about the tourney fee being paid locally, not nationally, but its worth a shot.

I will say, I have seen brackets for worlds changed more than once in the week before the tourney, so maybe they will own up and do the right thing.

No we are going. I would request a refund for D states today. We had 10 guys, missing 4 starters and 6 guys out if position. No fucking way I would sign up if I knew that we wouldn't get credit for 260 points towards seeding for worlds.
