2017 Coke league preseason notes

I sat in on the Coke league meeting last week, and, first off, the league voted to be a Challenge league, by the new USBC lane condition designation (patterns with ratios between 8:1 and 4:1). Related to this, the league also voted that any new league member with only a Standard average will have it rerated in reverse according to the Challenge average conversion chart. Finally, a committee was created to assist in determining the lane condition for each segment of the league.
