With the objective of organising a successful International Open which will be celebrated from the 7th. - 9th March 2008 on the HCP1 course, Sant Andreu de Llavaneres, Barcelona, the Tournament Committee has established preliminary pre-inscription date of 1st. November 2007 in order to ascertain the approximate number of participants attending the tournament, especially those from other FIPPA associations. This will allow the organising committee to estimate the potential dimension of the event. The definitive closing date for inscriptions is February 1st 2008.
Those players, pre-inscribed, will have first preference and will be allocated guaranteed participation assuming they comply with the prerequisite norms applied to the competition. If one FIPPA member association exceeds the suggested limit of available places, every effort will be made to accommodate those players should there be vacancies from other FIPPA member organisations.
The initial admission norms are:
- 5 players per member organisation of FIPPA
- 30 places reserved for affiliated playing members of the hosting member FCPP
- 5 places reserved as invitations at the pleasure of the hosting club
- 20 places reserved on behalf of the organising committee.
The Catalan Federation of Pitch & Putt will determine which players will have direct placement based on the most recent Catalan championships and the current Ranking League. Subsequent places for local participants will be determined by means of an open qualifying competition, so as to allow all those interested a possibility to attend the Open. The qualifying competition will be held on the 1st. & 2ndth. March 2008.
