After thinking about it again, Jami has a good point about the flexibility-at least to some extent. There might be a way to balance that flexibility... I played with Harold the first round and he was not his usual self just because he had so much to take care of. If he's going to go to all this work, i sure hope that he can play and play like he usually does.
So an idea: the good folks that want to play three rounds quickly make arrangements ahead of time. maybe there could be a "speedy card" or two that have made arrangements before-they can arrange the 3 or 4 people on the card, can pay their five bucks per round all at once, turn in tags, and make arrangements to drop off score cards when they are done, that might make it easier on Harold so he can relax and enjoy his day.
Also, set times in general would help people who can't make it to the first round but could make it to rounds 2 and/or 3, since they would know when to show. Also, folks who were late also put stress on Harold--he was trying to accommodate them, which was hard for him to do. If there are time certain starts, that will make people be on time, which really shouldn't be too much to ask for an event like this. I mean, if they show up at 8:30 and the cards have left--at least they know they can play casual until round 2 starts at 11:00 or whatever the time might be set at.
That seems like a good way to balance things and be flexible for those who are on time and need to get moving, and at the same time let Harold not have to worry about people who are showing up late for the start plus make it easier for people to come up and play later rounds. I know some people who thought about coming up later but didn't know the start times, and so were reluctant to drive all that way.
Again, i am just a newbie donating money to other players-just tossing ideas out there to try and help Harold!
The forecast is calling for around five to seven inches of rain. What is the plan for Down Under on Saturday if it's a swamp infested mess?
