Giggity's Playland  ;D

That sounds like a good name for a "gentleman's club", not a disc golf course. :)

Well, I guess there IS that.... ::)

Jamie, you should just have this statement turned into a hot-key, so that you don't have to type it anymore.  ;D

I guess the biggest thing I noticed was in the Adv. Masters division.  They used to be an A & B pool.  It's a single pool now, which looks to coincide with your percentages.  Without spending the time that it appears that you did here (Jack), I'm just curious as to how the divisions got split for allowed competitors, as I know there were more than what's playing now that wanted to sign up, and yet still get to be a bigger crowd.  The percentages for Advanced tell me slots were made available elsewhere?

I may be losing my mind, and it's usually verifiable, but, the last couple of Worlds I played in there were double the "age-protected's" that there are now.

Maybe it's because I knew I wasn't going this year, due to already committing to going to Japan, that I barely paid any attention to any of the Worlds sign-ups.  I just looked at the sign-ups/divisions on the site, and this has probably already been beatin' to death at some point, but, is it just me or is there a trend going on with who, or what divisions, they're allowing to sign-up for this tournament now?  I noticed a bazillion Advanced players signed up, and barely what I would consider a "Worlds Competition" list of players in most all of the other divisions. With exception to the Advanced division, it looked like an A or B Tier event.  I haven't looked back at the last 3 or 4 years of sign-ups, but, if I remember them correctly, every division is trending downward in "allowed participants" since Charlotte (with exceptions to the allowed women at that particular event).  Maybe it's the PDGA just looking to see who the latest and greatest up and coming Advanced player(s) to possibly go Pro will be, and all other divisions be damned, but....

Is it a possibility that maybe the sites presenting the event just don't have enough courses to handle it, or, some other factor that I'm missing?  It just seems to me that if you're going to have a Worlds competition, all divisions should have ample slots available, to even be considered "Worlds". 

Just curious, and I like starting new...umm...threads.  ;D 8)
