Geographic Flighting
As noted in the May E-News, the SMU Senior Design Team completed their project and presented their conclusions. Over the past month, w e have applied the recommendations from the SMU study of an east/west division of the Ladies league. The results are inconclusive. Some flights show a reduction in travel time and distance, others show a negative impact, or no change at all. 

Our goal prior to implementing any change to the structure of the TCD Ladies League is to have a league-wide positive impact. It makes no sense to change the way we are structured when some flights benefit from the change and others are negatively impacted. The east/west division does not provide overall positive impact.

We are currently evaluating dividing the ladies league into either 3 or 4 fixed sections. Not sure this is viable without losing the competitive nature of our league, or if it will put more than acceptable number of teams from a given facility into the same flight (both concerns expressed in survey comments).

Rest assured that we are considering ALL possibilities and have contacted other leagues to see how they have addressed the travel time issue. It is a problem everywhere, and all leagues of our size and smaller struggle with this. A decision on flighting will be made by the July e-news.
