Tournaments / sanctioned or not?
« on: February 01, 2006, 01:09:01 pm »
We have local events every night of the week during the summer season, which is awesome. Why have non-PDGA tournaments on the weekends just to play against the same bunch of players that you play against all week in leagues?

The Olathe crew, or at least I, am heading out this evening for a round of dg.... maybe skins or best score or both. Come on out and join in the fun. Should be around 55 and South winds at 5 mph. I are planning on starting around 5:15-5:45.

And, since it's Ground Hog Day, I thought I would post a few words of reflection....

"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney, or WW GLOW, Olathe GLOW, either of our Saturday Leagues, or the masses at the Ice bowl, and basking in the of warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter."

8 out for a beeeeauuutiful evening of DG on the Prarie. Temps around 39 and light winds out of the NW at 7 mph allowed John Raich and Arturro Villareal to tear it up.

7 weeks from yesterday Spring begins, and we only have 8 more weeks of Monday GLOW left. The ACE fund is at $117 now, so come on out and give it a whirl.

OK, so far it's me and Andy and Bryan, and maybe Deano. We are starting as close to 5:45 as we can, depending on when Bryan gets there. Come on out if anybody thinks they can take some coin from the Olathe crew. I'll have some lights if ya need em.

Are you the TD for this event? If you are, are you going to make it a PDGA sanctioned event?

Would you rather play PDGA sanctioned tourneys, or non-PDGA tourneys?

 I agree that the additional fees suck. I would suggest though that if our goal is to make tournaments less expensive and "easier for the casual player", then we will be hosting tournaments, for the most part, for our local disc golfers only.  I don't think very many out of towners are going to be traveling to KC to play in non-sanctioned events. Any local players that want to earn points and ratings, and advance their game, can simply go out of town to play sanctioned tournaments.
 I don't run any tournaments, so I suppose I should keep my opinions on this matter to myself.

I would venture to guess the turnout might be a little better if it was sanctioned.

Hey Kevin,
Is the Kan-U-Wyco going to be PDGA sanctioned? If not, can it be? I think you would have time to do it, if you act soon.

Ned always said when we were first putting in the course, "If you build it, they will come". He was right.

The Olathe GLOW League season is halfway thru. 11 weeks in the books and 11 weeks left before Daylight Savings Time begins! There were 8 out last night enjoying the dry ground and mild breeze. The temp hovered around 35 and didn't feel too bad at all. Our ACE fund is up to $88 so come out next week and hit it. We will have lights for sale next week as well. ($2 each)
