The big issue is that the only communication about this change or possible change is the internet........and we don't have all the people reading this and other posts.
People are out of town, have jobs, don't have computers, don't like going on line for this. So once this started to spread (it gets nice, people are out playing again) to conversations about did you hear that there is no league out here on Friday any more?
Then people resort to reading things that they normally don't.
Was anything posted on the WyCo marquee about a change? Did anyone ask about any of the league regulars out there to possibly help?
The internet is a tool, but I know personally of quite a few people that I will GUARANTEE will not have read one piece of information from the internet. This is a great tool, but personally more information should be garnered from all aspects before a decision is made to change a league that has been in place for over a decade on one park than a few posts started a few weeks before leagues are slated to start.
I also think that (this is something I believe should be better of all of us, self included) had Rob been the person running league in the past that he may have been better served to speak for the normal people playing. Instead now you have a person that hasn't ran league out there asking the BoD to approve changing something that has historically been in place to align with his abilities to run a league. It wasn't a matter of WyCo needing to change to help the players, but rather, the person willing at the time to be able to commit (Rob this isn't a burn on you though I can see it looking that way. I mean it more in a manner as had Tracy said, you know what we all looked at it last year and Wednesdays would be better.....)
I also though applaud Rob for stepping up and taking on the change possibly to run the league.
In response to that, why not make it 2 leagues at WyCo. Rob will run a PDGA league on Wednesday all people interested in attending can do so, and then Mark can run the KCFDC league on Friday's?
Do we not have enough people to play league twice a week out there? Is it too much to think about? Could we make WyCo on Friday's the first Doubles league in the city for quite some time? Make the Friday leagues rotate through types of play, random dubs, wolf, cali rules, singles, team challenges? I think that you could then alter the Friday style to be a little more cool.
Just a thought. I hate to see any of the attention that Rob is getting for stepping up being viewed as negative. I feel that we already don't have enough people stepping up to make things work in town. It is done by a lot of the same people, so new energy is always a good thing to me.
Instead of arguing why, lets figure out how to, and make it work in all instances. BTW this is why I personally voted for the rotating locations, I think that way you get more people that will want to play on different circuits, and increase the participation across the board.....limiting it to one park makes that tougher. People will show up once maybe 2x out of the normal, where as I feel (OPINION) as though that moving it would bring more people that are really driven by the PDGA to go to the varied course to see how they rate.
