Matchboxx 64 (well hopefully it will be 72, I guess we'll see) is not a club event. Neither is Chill at the Hill, Midwest Amateur Championships or the 2015 KC Mini Series which are also stickied under Tournaments. I'm not positive, admitting that upfront, but I don't think the Trilogy Challenge or the Flippin' Sweat Tournament which are also stickied.
Jack - have you asked the original posters for those threads if their events are club events? If not, why not?
Second - the answer regarding paying the club. Please read the original post for this thread. Your answer is there. Actually, it is also on the flyer (which I removed from this thread because this thread is no longer about the tournament) in very large font.
Those all pay for the club resources, I guess as long as you pay the club the money the times have changed. P-Hill isn't a signed club course, MAC will be ran by one company....
Flippin Sweat Tourney wasn't on a KCFDC course.
My apologies Rob, I guess it boils down to me not understanding because I was told on the flier that you are charging the players to pay the club fee, I hadn't seen that portion before you yanked it down.
Hence my comments were made as such. You didn't really answer you just said, only redeemable by me or DD KC....
Apologies didn't realize you were paying the club (or rather the players paying the fees) for the course.
The time has come for the KCFDC to determine the best use of the events it "caters" to and determine that it may not be in the best instance to be a club but rather a facilitator of events is what I am getting at.
That isn't a "you thing" Rob, but rather something that I have been talking with people about now for quite some time.....quite some, and you may be the drift to make it happen. Which in all honesty is pretty cool in many respects, change needs to happen to something here, because we can't continue in certain respects the way it has been done.
The KCFDC should be looking at a model to award events on Club Courses based on monetary return at this point, and only award it to those that meet certain requirements on their courses.
Only use the club services for those that "pay" (the term pay is loosely defined here in many areas) to be using it.
I also think that we are at a point where possibly only those "current" members get access to post, those TD's approved get more space, and banners on the site, and it is used as an income tool for those that comply with the standards.
I know you don't like me and you think that I always have it out for you, but that isn't really the case. In most instances I enjoy that you are doing what you are doing, and think a lot can be learned from your adaptability and desire to go to the outliers.
But you don't want to see that way, you see it as the big man poking you.....and your events.....I see it as conversations for the next progression of the club which will be a more profit driven reality so that individuals like yourself may play in the KCFDC field, but only if paying the associated costs, and helping with the infrastructure to develop a stronger base to help with the continuation of the sport locally.
