Hello Everyone! As we sign in, let’s please turn off our video and audio feeds, so that David has a clear channel through which to make his presentation. We will certainly have a Q&A session toward the end. Please take notes and have your questions ready! In fact, it would be great if you type your questions up and enter them into the chat line. Enjoy! (and Thanks David, for making this happen) Keith Murlless

Hi! Is there anything in particular that attendees should have in front of them during the presentation? thanks!
David Mason
12:22
Negative. No each items are necessary.
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
18:15
yes
Lindsey Baker-Momentum VBC
18:17
Yes
Keith Murlless
21:32
If you have a question now, go ahead and text it into this chat stream and I’ll interrupt David
Stephen Bosco
24:32
Why does it double, Who established that the rank does that?
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
25:07
Is this rank the same as the one Wendy sent out in an excel sheet?
Stephen Bosco
26:23
Will this presentation be sent out to all club directors
Stephen Bosco
26:33
I view it as a punishment too
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
26:39
If a player was on a 14 last year with a team rank of 106 and this player is now playing on 16s team. Does the 106 bring the older team's rank (35) down?
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
27:35
thanks
Keith Murlless
27:59
Before we get drawn into too many LIVE AUDIO questions, let’s let David stay in flow with his presentation… most of your questions will be answered.
Keith Murlless
28:28
Still, feel free to type questions in: David can choose whether to answer immediately, or later in the show
Stephen Bosco
31:44
We will need time to resubmit our seeding files to account for players who will fall into the younger categories
Keith Murlless
34:04
Stephen (and everyone): We completely understand! Lots of us had incomplete understanding early, or didn’t have all the necessary information to hand at that time. David and I are generating team-by-team replies that will go to the Club Directors, asking for specifically highlighted information, and giving everyone a chance to update (everything!)
Stephen Bosco
35:04
Thank you!
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
35:38
To be fair, the instructions at the top of the seeding excel sheet it said, RMR would help fill it in if we didn't know information.
jesssponenberg
35:52
Wasn’t this already due last Monday by 5p?
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
36:30
Yeah, I get that part...I meant the ranking stuff
LTVBC
37:50
is there a way to verify our information was submitted correctly
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
37:59
when you say roster do you mean the seeding form? When are rosters for tournaments due?
Keith Murlless
38:26
To the earlier question: This presentation is being recorded and will made available on the RMR website. You can watch it anytime!
Stephen Bosco
45:43
So, no crossover, no 35 points?
Keith Murlless
46:16
LTVBC: YES “is there a way to verify our information was submitted correctly?” We will be sending the team rosters, with individual nd team composite strength ranking. You’ll be able to verify that what you think is true, is in the system. Also, you’re “certifying” who is on your roster, and what we all believe each of their SRs to be. That way we all start with a clear understanding.
Keith Murlless
47:55
The next step is that when we think we have the majority of the team strength ratings worked out and confirmed, (hopefully this week) we’ll publish the overall team rankings for each age group. This might bring up some more questions, and we’ll have time to discuss those questions, or identify any errors.

If 14s play 15s they ranking could go down even in different seasons?
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
01:06:35
With all this shifting, it is going to be a logistical issue for WHERE we are assigned to play. None of us like knowing on Wednesday we are scheduled to play in Sterling and then because of shuffling, we are now playing in Pueblo. This is a HUGE issue and I really don't want this new SOS to mess with the scheduling of the locations. Thanks
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
01:10:06
my comment is in response to Jess asking about the deadlines for changing playing in divisions.
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
01:11:10
Yep!
LVBC - Amanda
01:12:33
When will the intial seeding be released for Power 1?
LVBC - Amanda
01:13:08
Thank you.
Kyle Knutson
01:23:23
I am wondering does Classic and Showdown and such have any effect on ranking?
Keith Murlless
01:27:49
While David is demonstrating, I thought I’d speak to the concern that SOS will reduce the “lead time” that teams have to plan their travel. We totally understand just how important this is to clubs as they plan (and budget!) And yes, we may very well see some reduction of the lead time. That said, please know that we WILL work in Committee to address this issue as well as we possibly can. We understand what you’re asking for, and why!
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
01:28:11
these rankings will impact national tournaments though, correct? (such as Crossroads)
Keith Murlless
01:28:57
The flip side, of course, is that Clubs want their teams to play “best competition” every time. Knowing that you’ll be in Pueblo isn’t so valuable, if that pool is full of teams really different (stronger or weaker) from your team. The point here is that there are both pros and cons to any system. But yes, we’ll work to find a “best fit!”
Kendra (FUNdamentals VB Club
01:30:09
yes, thanks
James Johnson
01:31:55
