Since DD is a "For profit" business, and looks to make 10's of thousands of dollars on this event,  you think "hiring help", instead of relying in "Volunteering", would be a better route maybe?

However, I'm no accountant, I just play one on the radio...

Though not one to argue......let's look at the facts on this one.....
B-Tier (I am gonna average $45) 198*45=8910
A-Tier117*50=5850
Total in=$14,760
Players Packs (Conservatively based on wholesale not retail) of say $35/each=$11, 025
leaves us with a total possible income stream of $3735

Paying for the staff time, and the work etc.... of each I would say you have about 100-150 man hours, let's say we pay them a nominal wage of $15 (which is more than they pay)=$2250, leaving about $1500 profit to the business to run an event for 3 days.  Trying to pay a staff on top of the already paying information leaves no profit and hence no reason to run events if you pay a staff.

Until we can get loaded sponsorships from other manufacturers outside of the disc golf business we will continue to play for each others money in our sport.  Which I believe that you and I have had the conversation is absolutely silly and completely sucks.  But it is still where we are at a sport.

So with an event that is this big the notion that making a few dollars off each player is nominal for the chance to participate in what is now the second largest event in Kansas City for disc Golf, and only it's third year.  Growing beyond expectations this is something that others clearly want, and volunteers feed our sport.  Look at the worlds...takes a village, and Scott is asking for the Village to help.  I thank him for doing so.

Now back to your regularly scheduled reading...

Was thinking the same thing.  It should get mowed today or tomorrow at Cliff. WW should get mowed this week as well.

The speech from Loomis was my first tournament experience ever.

I apologize for all of Kansas City for that experience.  As you are now aware Mike that wasn't standard practice in any event.  Sorry we have to even discuss it in all honesty, it was a travesty to the sport.

I think the last group last year teed off at 2:10 in the afternoon if that helps.

Yes, it was around 2:10, and we had to acknowledge we paid attention to the special instructions and all that jazz.  ;D

I am choosing to strike through what was otherwise a wonderful event.....

It is capped...at 32 for Open and Am division each, 8 for women.

However, if we don't reach our cap, then Scott and I have decided that in order for it to run well, it needs to be limited further. 

Sign up early and you won't get shut out.

Ugh, that kinda sucks, but I completely see why you have to do it that now that you put in that context.....

Tournaments / Re: 2014 Roc vs. Buzzz at Swope Park on September 20th

Sorry, I thought that it was the 20th again this year, based on it being the day after the revised date of the Swope Event that was rescheduled for the 19th, but then canceled.

Sorry to add to the confusion.

I killed you and threw another shot and left....

Basically, if you want in, sign up as early as you can.  If a division has 20 people sign up, it will be trimmed to 16 and the remaining 4 will be shut out and receive a refund.

That's fair.... ???

Why not cap it and say that is it instead of taking, and saying...maybe?

Since the DATE is listed in the title....one may be safe to assume it is on said date.....

no, the club does not send out reminders. What the number of members that have been involved in the club and the fact that the club is run by volunteers, I don't know that it would be feasible to take into account all of your suggestions. If you would like to volunteer as a membership coordinator, I'm sure Rick Rothstein would very much appreciate any help that he can get.

Sure thing Crispian.  I'll do it.  If everyone, the Board, is on, I'm in.  BRING IT!!!

Rick, pm me for a date time when you're available to discuss.

Dude if you take this on, you have no idea of the labor involved.....quarterly is better in our environment.  You want to pay in October for the Club Championship then get dinged again at the first league?  Nah, I will pay later next year.....or not.....

this is different in that it is tee times, so before your tee time you will have a rules meeting with the starter going over the ground rules on the course.  Watch the PDGA site or other methods typically for the tee times for you.
