If my agenda is growing the sport of disc golf, guilty as charged.

As an old fart Am GM that started playing two years ago, I am more than happy to compete in the Am division and against Am players in general.  I registered for the Am division for the Matchboxx 64.  And, I am contemplating playing in Advanced at P-Hill instead of Am GM just for the fun of it.  And no, it's not like I play in Am GM and beat people and so would be "moving up."  It's just fun for me to play in different divisions at different times.  I've never played in an "Advanced" division--just rec, intermediate, and AGM.  (technically leagues are advanced--i am talking about tournaments.)  I suppose I don't think us old farts are the future of the sport and frankly the old farts can hold their own with the youngsters.  But no need to repeat what Nova has already pointed out.

I agree with everything you said. That is exactly my point. If you or I show up we will be glad to be compete in any division. If we get beat so what, we meet new people and have fun. But, any woman that shows up has to have their own division. How many league sheets are turned in with one women in their division. How many are turned in with one grandmaster. So any women that shows up gets to play and gets their money back, and any guy gets put in a different division. So you and Nova are correct, a double standard exists and you both embrace it.

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.

Because most AM Grandmasters can beat me and I'm sucking it up to play in the AM division so I think you can too.

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.

Amy and Nova and MK made succinct, valid points and added the insightful questions to the discussion. In return, Nova and MK, in particular, have been attacked. We all talk about growing the sport. That means for all. No one is asking for a handicapping system. Only asking if a separate women's division was considered. I hope we all recall this is a public forum that ANYONE can visit and does visit looking for guidance, information and a sense of community. What I find, at least half the time, is mocking, derision and humiliation. Can we please knock it off? Some people are making our community look like mean children. I got voted to our BOD with 100+ active club members present and the second most votes (behind the highly regarded Pete Cashen) and clearly stated I wanted to make a bigger place for women in the sport. I still got voted in which tells me others feel the same.
So, as long as we all go along with your female agenda we are nice people who shouldn't be questioned. But if we have some other agenda, like equal rights for old farts, then we are derisive and mean children.

It seems like every forum lately is a way to push womens right, with you at the forefront.
Is there a problem with that?
Yes.  Every time you push to take other peoples spot then that is an issue. Why, do you hate old people. Why are you trying to take our spots. You too good to play with the old people. Are you an age bigot.  What's your problem, do you hate left handed people. Why can't they have 8 slots. Oh, that's right you only care about women. And why won't you play in a bikini?

How about 4 divisions for old guys. Or maybe everyone can accept what he said.


Asking why isn't a justification for being a dick.  I am just curious why it is out of the question for 2 more cards of 4 when there are two holes available.  Perhaps there is a good reason and I'd be happy to hear what the reason is.  I think I know Rob well enough to ask why.
I wasn't being a dick but I can be if you want.  Maybe you missed the part where Rob explained it and said thanks for understanding. And you knowing Rob well is no reason to keep pushing it. It seems like every forum lately is a way to push womens right, with you at the forefront. I know, I'm sure that will make your chest swell with pride. Why don't we have a tournament for just women, oh that's right we already did that. How about we have something for only old people or any other group. So, there you go DICK.

Great weekend, thank you Dick and everyone else. Just more conflicting thoughts for you, I have heard several grand master age people "b%tching", well maybe "complaining" , well maybe just "metioning it", about playing Swope Gold and another course on the same day. I thought that was the best part, that was a awesome day. Thanks again.

Wife wasn't too keen on playing a tournament on Father's Day weekend  :-\.
Did you try to explain to her what Father's Day is all about. Maybe she has it confused with Mother's Day.

Very happy with my first A-Tier win, a win that wasn't won in my opinion but rather the competition didn't hang on as well as they would have liked in the Rain.

Guess playing in Japan in that monsoon has prepared me for the rain quite nicely......that was clearly the difference round.  I played with QMS, Blizzard Katana, DX Classic Roc, and a Star Valk on all shots except 2 where I used a first run Star X-Cal.....


Congrats on the win.

We won some little league games when I was a pitcher as a kid. Sometimes it would be hot, so to get ready we would practice when the sun was up. We played with a bat and ball.

Just kidding, really that looked like a nice win.

You will have to forgive Jordan, somebody is messing with him on another thread, spelling his name wrong and stuff like that. Maybe it is throwing him off his game a little bit.  :D :D.

We have a team. How cool is it you cant even spell your own teammate Chris Newburg's name right. SUCKERS!
Soon everyone will know how to spell his name. That's probably why Jordaan couldn't make it, he was afraid he would get matched with him. Oh, did I spell Jordan wrong, see what I did there.

I'm just wondering if they will even have a team...
And if they do will it even matter, they are going to lose either way.
