Masterpoints is an awards system.  Masterpoints is used for Life Master achievements, the Barry Crain 500, Ace of Clubs, Mini-McKenney, and other Masterpoint races.  I do not want to get rid of Masterpoints, but when Masterpoints is used to bracket, stratify, or flight ACBL events, Young Hot Shots and Seasoned Veterans are created.   I advocate we have both an awards system, and a ratings system.  One system cannot do both jobs well.
