I knew that would ruffle a dirty feather. 

Mike P has been handing out trash bags for course clean-up....I bet the club would be more than happy to supply the bags!!

Definately a great idea!!

Except PC.  I'm not cleaning PC.  They do have an overfunded parks department (at least that's what it seems like from previous postings).

typically group rounds take 3 hours or more.
this leaves 30 minutes at best to grab a lunch.

I'm an integral part of Lawrence Brewers Guild.  We put on Brewfest every September where we serve 70 kegs to over 300 people.  A lot of beer is consumed not only during the 6 hours of the actual fest, but during the 48 hours of camping before and after.  There are 4 committees, each with 5-10 people on them to coordinate logistics, beverge, food and music.  Lots of people, all volunteers, lots of beers, lots of personalities over two whole days.

After every Brewfest we talk about what went well and what we could improve on.

The bigger point is not my individual score.  The point I was attempting to review was how could someone could check-in six different ways with 3-4 different people, yet something not happen they way it should.  There is an opportunity for improvement in the player check-in and verification process.

My error in thinking that this type of review would be helpful.  I apologize for bringing it up.

Woah guys.

My post was (as stated) an attempt to point out some issues in a friendly manner.

Don't fear gentle observations.

Good morning,

I want to bring something up about how the tournament was run, but want to say up front that I'm not upset at all.  As someone who has put in countless (literally) hours in a non-profit organization over 7+ years, I greatly appreciate hard work done by volunteers.  Still, if issues are not reviewed or discussed then improvement will not happen.

When I signed up for Ice Bowl on 1/17 at the store, I forgot to notate if I was playing Sat, Sun, 1 round or 2.  Dick graciously called me on my mobile asking which I replied two rounds on Sunday.

When I checked in on Sunday AM, I informed them I was playing two rounds.

When I turned in the round card, nothing was said.  One of the volunteers (name purposely not given) gave me the card back 15 minutes later asking who was and wasn't playing 2nd round.  I found all 5 other players, marked the card with a Y or N next to name and turned it back in.  My name was marked Y.

During lunch, my name was called out as double checking on second round.  I checked in again stating I was playing 2nd round, this with a 2nd different volunteer (again name left out on purpose - but I know them all by name)

Sometime later, as my double checking personality started to kick in, I checked in again to make sure.

Then when the cards/groups were posted, my card was missing.  I asked a third volunteer about it and was told to jump in on a card and have them write my name down, which I did.

I now see in the scores above (Rob Martin) that my second round score was not recorded.

So...I checked in / or informed four different people a total of six different times.  My 2nd card was not retained and my score was not recorded.

If this was a PDGA tournament, I would be pissed as hell.  Since this was a benefit and didn't have any real significance, I'm slightly annoyed but not offended.  It is easy to criticize from the outside, but all of the volunteers definitely looked like they were working their ass off, which is EXTREMELY appreciated.  I sincerely mean this when I say, THANK YOU.

My point is, all of us should strive to improve how we do things, running a tournament, etc.  Heck, the day afterwards, I posted on how we could improve the beer donations and contacted 4 people on helping me to brew next years homebrew donation.  I intend to personally get involved in the beer donations next year to try to get some fresh faces (ManKind, etc.).

I'll be back for next years Ice Bowl...with a larger contribution of homebrew.  Let's try to improve the retention of who's playing and who isn't and the scores they throw.

Thanks guys!

Rob Martin

Is it just me, or does the voting graphic look like someone is flipping the bird?

"requires very little equipment"

Whoa - nobody told me that.  Why do I have 100 discs and 3 bags?
