well looks like ill be a busy bee the next few weeks....

Thank you Kujo for your fine work. To lessen the load a little, you can either leave the settings from the tournament or if you feel froggy, come up with a layout and let me know where everything is here so people will know. I'll leave it up to you. I trust you know the course better than I do. Just make it fun, while still competitive. Thanks.

Also, I just received a note from Tom, that there may be a soccer tournament that weekend. With that in mind, I'm going to have us move over to Lakeside Hills (aka Birdland) for the other course along side Heritage.

But yes, Bad Rock/WW and Heritage/PC

What a joke.  How did Steve Dodge get to this point in his life without the PDGA? Please someone let me know. I'll wait.

I found this post to be rather interesting.

Dear Paul McBeth,

Here is your explanation:
Since the day BW became a member of the pdga he has received more official complaints to the pdga, from other players, than any other member. He has been caught cheating (pencil whipping), cursing, punching trees, kicking his bag over, kicking tournament baskets over while in play, & now trying to rattle fellow competitors through physical confrontation and intimidation. Not to mention while already on probation. All of this goes against the unwritten gentlemen's code for competitive golf.

It's very disappointing you wouldn't take to time to understand all this before making such a decision. You have these fanboys that are going to just gobble up everything you say and blindly follow your motives. The same FB's are asking why Nikko has never had the same problems and it's because his tantrums just involve him making an ass out of himself and not intentionally trying to rattle other players because he's not on top of his game and he feels it's the only way to now gain a competitive advantage. Nikko's actions haven't warranted players to feel the need to formally complain while BW's have. pdga can't do anything about anyone without a formal complaint.

You have way too much integrity and have gained way to much respect from people in our sport to take a major stand against the definition of the kind of person that is no good for competitive golf. BW's situation is the exact time for the pdga to enforce a ridiculous suspension. He's the exact kind of person that needs to be taught this lesson for all of us. We all have heard horror stories about him or watched a YouTube video of him saying or doing something that would immediately get you punched in the face where I come from, and we all need to know and be aware of what it is to be a competitive golfer. What it truly means to be engaged in gentleman's competition with your fellow golfer. Not to wish them any ill will while hoping your best that day is lucky enough to be a stroke under their best. Our sport is too small for its best and most well known player to boycott over something that was long overdue and easily explained!

I hope the pdga doesn't blink and you are forced to figure all that out on your own or find a new profession. The real reason your fellow players won't end up joining your little boycott isn't because they can't afford to, it's because you are sticking up for the biggest jerk face that our sport has ever seen and no other player would be foolish enough to put their livelihood on the line for BW. While you think you are taking a stand against the power of the pdga your really only fighting for BW. Your fellow players have the foresight to know exactly why the pdga did what they did and that their decision benefits the majority of pdga members. If you truly believe that over the BW ruling, the pdga is just going to start suspending for arbitrary reasons your not thinking clearly. You and your fellow competitors have no reason to worry about being suspended because none of you conduct yourself in a manner befitting of BW.

They suspended him for repeated conduct detrimental to our sport with proof in the form of massive formal complaints.

Since most don't need an explanation because it's easy enough to figure out, theres your explanation, now get back to work, or don't!

More information will be available this evening. I just wanted to let you know what courses we are playing and have this thread up and going.

What I can tell you is:

A) We are using Heritage and Stocksdale (aka Bad Rock Creek)
B) We are also using Prairie Center
C) We are also using another Missouri course (Will have that tonight when I post more information)

There is a lot of little things I have to clarify today before we get the rest of the information out but we are just about there.

So, Paul McBeth has just announced (via FB) that he will no long stand for the national anth...ermmm, I mean, he will no longer play in any PDGA events, except of course the Innova Presents the USDGC  ::), until the PDGA says why they banned BW for 18 months.

That's odd. It seems to work for some and not for others. We will have to look into it.

When you go to the first link you must then follow the link within the text and you will hear a breakdown about what happened in a podcast interview.

For those of you who do not know what I'm talking about, the PDGA has laid down an 18 month suspension on the #14 player in the world, Brad Williams. I'm just curious what everyone thinks about it. Is it a harsh penalty or do you feel he deserved it?

Here is the article that somewhat talks about the suspension.

Here is an article written by Loomis about Bradley from 2012. Not everyone knows Mr. Williams and his antics but this will possibly shed some light on the subject.

I'll fix it tonight so that you can sign up again.

FIXED!

REGISTER FOR THE 2016 ROC VS BUZZZ


You may resume attempting to sign up. If you sign up soon, please post here that you did so I can verify that it is working properly.
re-did and got another email

When you register, you will get a notification saying that you did so. If you got a notification saying you registered the first time you probably shouldn't have re signed up. I fixed the fact that it had reverted back to an old post from 2015. I am unable to log in to the back side of the site from work so I can't look to verify anything until later this evening. Did funds come out of whatever account you used either time?
thats the part I was unsure of, it never re-directed me to PayPal like normal event reg, so I wasnt sure if it actually "registered" me.  I was planning to pay at DGW, but trying to help keep the paperwork straight for all

Ok. So you were not prompted to pay at PayPal. I will have to see why it is not directing you to pay there. Maybe an API issues. I'll look at it again tonight. Are you able to pay at DGW? Make sure before you go there.

Ok, this time for real. It's FIXED!!

The PayPal was no longer setup. It is now and should be working fine. For those 3 who signed up since the issue we have your information but there is no payment associated with your registration.
