Tournament flyer didn't say anything about being a dick. And who are you artisan?
That's not being a dick, that is playing by the rules, you and your caddy follow the same rules. Even if they told you your caddy was drinking, you would still be DQ'd automatically.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR CADDY. (PERIOD) They can drink as an observer, as a caddy, they can't. UTZ you have no ONE but your caddy to be mad at, seriously.
As for Loomis comments, I have already addressed them, I have never be as embarrassed about disc golf in Kansas City as I was on Sunday listening to him spew misinformation about the rules. I have never ever in my 30+ years of playing ever heard someone go off on their own agenda with no consideration for the actual rules of play. I know that Scott and DD have addressed it, and I talked with them about it directly.
That being said, trying to squeeze us on the course out of the rain was tough, and some errors are to be expected. Tee times on the PDGA site can also be expected, find out your tee time from the TD, they were all correctly posted at the Players Party on Saturday night. You didn't go? Did someone you know go? They posted them with google docs as well with the correct time, bottom line, information needs to be on you to know your time, or have a good idea. It was known approximate times for all divisions, so you should have known that reading the same time with the same people wasn't correct. It isn't the first time that has happened, and probably won't be the last. Be sure to work with the staff, and other players to ensure you know the time.
It was a fun event in many respects, and something that I am sure they will learn and improve on as it continues to move forward.
I thank not only the staff and the helpers, but the work that was done way in advance by Scott to make it a success, even with the hiccups. Overall, it is never easy to appease everyone, and this was clearly the case, but attempting to put on this event is something that others haven't done, and congrats and most importantly thank you!
