I think tags are important . . . since that is one of the incentives to play FTL . . . but not necessary.
I like the idea of a $3 ace fund buy in for non-kcfdc members. As the ace fund has gotten large, I don't think it fair for someone who has never played FTL or local to show up and hit our ace fund without some kind of risk or relationship to FTL.
The only ones who will have opportunity in FTL on the road (especially long trips) would only be FTLers. It is a traveling league and we have often played some distant courses . . . This will be the first one of this distance. I agree, it would not be fair to have non FTLers in on a chance when it is far away.
It looks like only 3 FTLers are going so far anyway. I did check out the DGCR on the two courses . . . and there are some potential ace runs . . . longest hole is only 430ish.
Thanks for the imput, I am still persuadable if someone is really against it . . . and for a good reason.
That is possible but probably only at distant tournaments that I am at to facilitate. I'm not sure that is kosher but it is hopefully a way to get folks to travel. In town tournaments will probably only be in play on Friday s. What are your thoughts?
Am round: 13 out, 12 in ace fund + no aces hit = $440 moves on to afternoon round.

Next week I will be going to Parsons/Altamont Ks for the Idle Hour Open.
If we have at least 4 KC players for the tournament, the ace fund can be played. I hope to be there by noon on Friday, so we could have a round in the afternoon. I plan on playing doubles Friday night, 2 rounds on Saturday, one full round on Sunday and the final 9. Again, if there are at least 4 in, Ace Pot will be in play for each round. An Ace on the final nine will also get paid. (This is the friday traveling league)
