To see when a player has a bye check out the draw: Women’s Singles 2018
Men’s Tournament Format: with 16 players, a schedule was prepared for all sixteen ensuring that players formed groups of 8 so that each player would play two games on each of the two greens. A random draw of the players listed them 1 – 16 and the names were inserted into the draw schedule. All players that win three or more of the preliminary round matches advance to the playoff round with the exception that if more than eight players win three or more games, only the top eight ranked teams advance. This will be followed by two or three playoff rounds. The Preliminary round games are posted: Singles Men’s Draw A and Singles Men’s Draw B.
Lunches will be provided by Commonwealth’s Chef Dave at a cost of $8 which will include drinks and dessert and snacks throughout the day. On the menu for Saturday: baked shepherd’s pie with mushroom gravy, dinner rolls, tossed salad, green peas and strawberry shortcake; and for Sunday: baked pork loin with home fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, tossed salad and broccoli bacon salad with apple pie for dessert.
