I agree with some set of rules, but since fathers day is always an issue, I also think it would be okay to have a rule that says in June we do it the weekend before. It just seems doing right before a holiday, and what is a heavy vacation week, is sub-optimal. I believe that historically July is the month with the most unavailable players, but sometimes June is going to have a similar issue. I believe I raised this fathers days issue last year, and it was certainly not an issue for me, since I hosted. I just think we are better off moving it a week earlier.
Looking back over the las t three years,seems that more often then not we are moving it to the second week rather the fourth, so maybe that algorithm should be looked at. As Yancy pointed out, at least this year, the second week in June would result in a more consistent spacing between events. so moving to the second week as the rule I believe would have worked on all occasions and resulted in better spacing.
