In an effort to ensure that Pleasanton stays current and moves smoothly into the next decade I’d like to announce these changes:


·        Equality between men and women pro and amateur athletes

·        Equality between all levels of amateur classes

What to expect:

·        6 total athletes per class including pro men and women

·        5 total groups of athletes, 12 athletes per group

·        The 5 groups will be as follows - Pro men and women , Men’s and Women’s A class, Men’s 40-49 and Men’s 50-59 Masters classes, Women’s 40-49 and 50-59 Masters classes, Men’s 60+ and Women’s 60+ Masters classes

·        Pro men and women will be compensated equally to include prize monies, full travel arrangements and hotel accommodations.

·        All amateur participants receive some compensation

Our goal is to facilitate a safer games by having less athletes on the field and also at the same to make this event as competitive as possible. We run on an extremely tight timetable and it has become increasingly difficult on our judges, officials and volunteers to meet that expectation.

Selections will be by invitation using the NASGA ranking boards only as a guideline , we don’t think that the rankings are reliable enough, especially for the top (pro) level women. We also plan on using our many years of games experience to hopefully produce an extremely competitive competition with top athletes in all the classes.

·        Note to the elite level women – you can apply for either the pro class or the amateur A class but not both, if you’re not accepted in the pro class you won’t be automatically shifted down to the amateur A class.

Entry forms will start going out in May, if you believe you should be considered please contact myself at or my co-chairman Tom Kincaid at Thank you, Steve Conway CCSF Athletic Chairman

So 12 pros, 12 amateurs, 0 lightweights, and 36 masters. Why it's the very definition of equality. 

And in a special note to the elite women they and they alone are told that they can be either a pro or an A at their discretion. You must have left out that same note to the men. You know, equality and all.
