Bidwell Bash Invitational 67 Topic

This will be the 1st season for the Bidwell Bash Invitational (named after General John Bidwell, the founder of Chico, CA, and Chico State University (also known as CSU, Chico). The tournament will be a 6-team round robin that will be played in weeks 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 of the non conference schedule.  CSU, Chico is the tournament's host.  In future seasons, the defending champ from the previous year will get an automatic bid to the next tournament (to be clear, this will be on a 1 season delay, so the season 67 winner will get an automatic bid to the season 69 tourney, as the season 68 tourney will already be scheduled by the time the season 67 tourney is played).  The remaining 4 teams in the field is invitation only based on alblack's dynasty rankings (since he doesn't have a team in the Allen world, he doesn't do dynasty rankings here, but I have his formula and will be keeping and publishing the list).

I'm in. It might be a mistake, because I'm not on the same level with any of those teams. But I'm in.

Wayne St. MI has declined, so LeMoyne Owen gets an invitation.

Glad you are in tarvolon, and your program can definitely compete with the others here.

So far the field consists of CSU, Chico, S. Arkansas and Kentucky Wesleyan. Invites are out to U of DC, American International and LeMoyne-Owen.

Still waiting on 3 coaches to reply to invites (and one has opened the invite but not replied...odd). I will invite the next 3 on the list shortly and the first 3 to reply will be in.

I have invited 4 more teams.  The first 3 to reply (including the 3 who already had outstanding invitations) will be in.  I'm trying to get the field set before recruiting starts just to make sure no one makes any scheduling mistakes.

Adams St. accepts an invite.  That leaves 2 spots.  So far the field consists of CSU Chico, S. Arkansas (the Muleriders, for those of you who like interesting father actually played college golf for the Muleriders), Kentucky Wesleyan and Adams St.
9/2/2013 2:06 PM
Fairmont St. accepts.  One spot left and there are still 5 invites out that I'm waiting to hear back on.  First one to respond is in.
9/2/2013 4:42 PM
I have filled the final spot with Queens U (NC), coached by very good coach bvb (look at all the programs he has built in Iba...the guy can coach HD). Hopefully in the future we will be able to get all of the top programs to participate like they do on the Yarnell in Iba, but this should still be a very strong field. I will finalize the schedule when I get home and send it out to all of the participants.
