PIAA Tournament problems and fixes

Postby RichB » Tue Mar 16, 2010 2:58 pm

My Proposal to revise the Pa Tournament schedule.

Many people, including me, might prefer having a single class for the PIAA Individual tournament (but 3-4 classes for the Team Duals event) with 32-40 kids per weight. But I don’t see that happening soon, so the following is my suggestion for how to improve what we have now.

Specific complaints I mean to resolve: The length of Saturday from Start of wrestling to End 15:36 hours, 8:00 AM to 11:36 PM. (Admittedly at least 30 minutes longer than normal) The unexpected delay getting into the final session (I don’t mind standing in the Cold, Wind, and Rain, but most fans do). The perrenial fact that wrestler are knocked from the championship bracket and must wrestle a consolation bout 60-90 minutes later; especially after the quarterfinals against a fresh wrestler.

Here goes, 6 mats.

Thursday 9:00 AM AA preliminary only, No consolation. End time 12:15 PM

Thursday (doors open 1:00) 2:00 PM AAA preliminary only. No consolation. End time 5:15 PM

Thursday (doors open 6:00) 7:00 PM AA Quarterfinals and the first round of consolations (what are currently wrestled Thursday at 12:30) only. End 10:00 PM. We could also go simulataneous start of Quarters on 4 mats, Consis on 2 until quarters end, add 15-30 minutes/

Friday 9:00 AM AAA Quarterfinals and the first round of consolations (what are currently wrestled Thursday at 7:30) only. End 12:00 noon. We could also go simulataneous start of Quarters on 4 mats, Consis on 2 until quarters end, add 15-30 minutes.

Friday (doors open 1:00) 2:00 PM AA semifinal on 2 central mats. Definite simultaneous start each weight. Outer 4 mats contain second round consolations followed by third round consolations (consolation quarters) on next available mat basis. End 5:00 PM.

Friday (doors open 6:00) 7:00 PM AAA semifinal on 2 central mats. Definite simultaneous start each weight. Outer 4 mats contain second round consolations followed by third round consolations (consolation quarters) on next available mat basis. End 10:00 PM.

Saturday break down to four mats Three mats might work.
