This thread makes me embarrased to be a part of the KCFDC. Anyone else?

Well thanks, I asked you a question and you at least answered it. Somehow I think if MK, Nova, or Crispian had asked you would have had a lot more serious well thought out answer. That's probably my fault for being a wise-guy.
THIS IS NOT A SHORT POST BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A QUICK EASY ANSWER ISSUE. TAKE THE TIME TO READ AND UNDERSTAND.
I appreciate Joe Teater (jteater) coming to my defense and supporting with the paraphrase 'dude, the guy stated the way it was...leave him alone'. What I also read Joe to say is at some point, divisions can be so diluted that everyone is a solo player in their own division. To which I also agree with.
Which I come to my first point. While I'm ok with people asking questions about this or that, when I provide the guideline for how a tournament will be ran, I would really appreciate it if people would respect me and accept it for what it is. In some way, people are asking me to respect their particular demographic. Please respect me and how I choose to run a particular tournament, especially realizing that I go out of my way to make every other tournament as welcoming as possible. There are other opportunities for tournaments literally every single weekend from April 1 to Sept 30 within 150 miles of KC metro. As a TD, it is actually problematic to find a weekend that I can host a tournament without conflicting with 2 other tournaments within 200 miles, let alone 1 tournament within 150 miles. I'm not saying this to women; I'm saying this to every Tom, Dick, Harry and Jane. (edit: and Joe)
To everyone reading this - please sign up early. I know we (me too) don't like to sign up until we know who's playing or the weather, etc. This tournament needs to fill to run well. When you sign up, others will sign up.
...Or maybe everyone can accept what he said.
NO DRUGS or ALCOHOL permitted. All violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. PLUS,BE AWARE of walking trail through parts of the course. The trail was here before the DG course and has many faithful users.
It may take 7-10 days before women's divisions open up. They will. I'll post when they are open.So with all that said I would like to know if you are going to have 16 spots for AM Grandmasters, and if not, why.
I'm curious of how this modified match play will work, and the best way to find out is to play. I'm signed up.
I'm ok with people asking about (whatever)... Asking about it is ok, complaining about it...not so much.
And, by the way, Rob and I like each other.
I just want to say thank you to all of you who have gone out and are going out to waterworks today to clean up after the big storms!!! We lucked out in Olathe, I think. I only saw one major issue--a downed lightpole a mile or so from my house. Thanks again!!
Anthony, thanks for sharing your thoughts. Too many people think because they are volunteering, it puts them above reproach. I read your post as entirely constructive and appreciate the feedback. I have no doubt that we could have been better prepared for the vast array of disc golf knowledge present in the crowd. Anyone wishing to critique my efforts that weekend, feel free. There's nothing thin about me. :-)
