 At the FSA meeting of March 6th,2021 it was decided that because there were no amateur tournaments at the district level... "for this season only, the accumulated amateur move up points will be retained for a fourth year".  Simply, put the points earned in the 2018/2019  season will not be dropped in October 2021.  However, at the end of the 2021/2022 season, the points for both the 2018/2019 and the 2019/2020 will be dropped. Nancy

Once capacity is reached in any division, the Registrar will notify the Webmaster who will publish that information on the website.
