Steve the Quiz Berry - have we met? What's your real name? Mine is Rob Martin.

My apologies, is it not OK for me to post an A-tier here? If it's not, I'll happily delete the post. Thanks.
No, perfectly fine in all honesty. Don't let me stop you. I lived in Chi-Town for years, and always had to drive down there to see Gary to play. Love the area, but the drive is a killer, and the notion that there is an A-Tier closer (PDGA's fault not yours) is always something strikes me odd.
There are plenty of people who may opt for this, so this is WAY more than appropriate to post it in here.
As Kevin indicated it is better to post it here than to delete it.
I hope the event is a big success I really do. I just wish it wasn't on a weekend that has always been Des Moines weekend. I am looking for an excuse to get back up there to visit and play, and I don't wanna go over to IN and Lemon Lake to play.
I haven't played this Canyon's course yet, maybe plan on playing it on my way to K-Zoo this summer, so it is very informative, regardless of this smart-ass comment!
No disrespect meant, but sarcasm is often lost on me in the rooms, in person not so much!
We will have alternate tee pads. Short for Junior, Rec, Rec Women, Int. Women and maybe Adv. Grandmaster. Long for others.
We "AIN'T" wimps RoB. AdvGM can play longs.
Hi Chuck and Jason, tie breakers are something that would need to be worked out. Great points! In my opinion, in this format, the way to break ties would be head to head scoring.
For example, let's presume Jim and John tied with 16 points and Ed and Larry tied with 12 points on a given card. To break the ties I would see who won more holes head to head between Jim and John. And then I would do this also for Ed and Larry.
If they are still tied after that, I would do a one throw CTP on the hole that they started on. In my pragmatic opinion, if two people are tied after 18 holes and they beat each other on the same number of holes, then whoever advances is basically a coin toss (they are equally matched!) and a CTP is a fine way to break the tie.
I would suggest it is a one hole playoff. If you tie on that hole, it is then CTP to the next hole and you're done.
