Decades of volunteering, right call/ wrong call, who has said what regarding the call... It doesn't change the fact that the call was wrong and you stand by it. I disagree with you. That's it. We'll see if this moment changes the rule regarding weather for future evets.....Again this is your opinion Loomis, only you feel it was wrong. I stand by the fact that the call made was correct and done in consultation with many individuals monitoring the weather closely. Were you watching your phone or playing the round? My goal as TD is to ensure that things go as planned and safety is a concern. Pulling people off the course when YOU felt like it wasn't my concern. My concern is the safety of everyone and the decision was made in a timely fashion to minimize distraction from the event and allow safety to be maintained. That was achieved.
You don't like it, you made it clear. Fortunately though your opinion on this matter though obviously notated had no impact on the decisions of others that were in charge to make the decision. I get you don't like it, but having played in an event just three weeks ago where play should have been suspended I understood there is a line, you play in foul weather, it happens, you don't play in unsafe weather, that is what we did. We allowed play in foul weather, and pulled players in unsafe weather. Your definition wasn't consulted and I apologize for that. I used the modern thing that I am typing on to gather the information and worked with Kevin at making an informed decision as to when. Maybe a few minutes could have been done earlier, but the notion of 30-35 minutes earlier is just silly.
Again I will hide it in a big thank you to all that helped, like it or not Loomis, over a 100 people helped to make this event work for you to play, and if you don't like the decisions the step up and run the event and make the decisions next time, and then listen to people that are single sided with conversational points that they see as the only way it should be done.
