    • Try to keep it low 14 to 16 max. Most people in yahoo leagues for the trophy. It has been my experiance that if you have to many participants after about the fifth or sixth week they start dropping out and your league turns to poop if they dont have a shot at a trophy.

    • 10, 20, 25, or 50. One strategy might be to join a 50 and join a 10 or join a 50 a 20 and a 10, so any of these would be good. To me, the key to a successful league, big or small, is getting everybody involved on the message board. If everybody feels good to post, alot of helpful news and facts will start to appear and scores will go up. This causes everybody to feel good and even more activity. I started my first league and am shooting for 50. Right now, there are 27, but I started by making sure everybody understood all the uses of the league message board. I posted lists of the tournaments and purses and the third and final day results of the Target Challenge and the 2007 FedEx bonus payouts and a post about changes to the 2008 FedEx points system, and I posted a post about the 2007 Mercedes results. The board seems to be beginning to heat up, and I think it will get even better. Maybe if you decide what level of participation you'd like for your league, you'd have an easier time deciding how big you'd like it to be. Whatever your choice, I would tell people your intentions on your league board and in your ad messages and then I would stick by them. That way you'll have the greatest level of participation possible with no disappointed members...
