they open the registration to everyone about 6-8 weeks after invites, then it is first come first served.  So have your PDGA membership active and ready to go.

Are there some nice pictures of the 09 Worlds courses around, not otherwise buried in a Flash presentation?  :)

I do not believe so at this time.  We have been spoiled by PlayDg, and really haven't done much else with regards to that.

Luke, I'm in touch with the creators of the playdg site, and may be able to leverage their images.  I'll keep you in the loop.

So i just looked at the tentative schedule and noticed that the Adv Mens are not playing anywhere that I'd hope they would....I have played open before and will do so at the KC Wide open, what is the restriction on wanting to play open at this event??? Knowing that i will get my "a" handed to me....still would rather pay the money and enjoy the experience in order to  play the courses.......


Thoughts???

if you do not qulaify as an open player, you would want to do the following to guarantee you get to play.  If you get invited as an am, go ahead and pay to get your name in the event.  Then once the open enrollment period begins, contact the PDGA and let them know that you would like to play as an Open player, and then pay the extra fee (probably double what Am's pay).  That should be it.

Not even sure if I qualify as an AM....i played in one PDGA event in 2008 that was the KC wide open as an OPEN Player (1st after several years of non tourney play).....Is this an invite only tourney? I thought that the host city had some spots.....would love to get one of them it that is true,.....

FW1/FM1/FG1/FJ1/FJ2   
MJ1/MJ2     
MS1/MPL/ML1/MJ3/MJ4/FJ3/FJ4

PRO
MPO - Open
MPM - Pro Masters
MPG - Pro Grandmasters
MPS - Senior Grandmasters
MPL - Legends
FPO - Pro Women (any age)
FPM - Women's Pro Masters
FPG - Women's Pro Grandmasters

AMATEUR
MA1 - Advanced Men
MA2 - Intermediate Men
MA3 - Recreational Men
MA4 - Novice Men
FW1 - Advanced Women
FW2 - Intermediate Women
FW3 - Recreational Women
FW4 - Novice Women
MM1 - Advanced Masters
MG1 - Advanced Grandmasters
MS1 - Advanced Senior Grandmasters
ML1 - Advanced Legends (still waiting on PDGA to decide if they're going to leet us have this one)
FM1 - Women's Advanced Masters
FG1 - Women's Advanced Grandmasters
FS1 - Women's Advanced Senior Grandmasters
FL1 - Women's Advanced Legends (probably won't have any)
JB1 - Junior Boys (born 1990 or later)
JB2 - Junior Boys (born 1993 or later)
JB3 - Junior Boys (born 1996 or later)
JB4 - Junior Boys (born 1999 or later)
JG1 - Junior Girls (born 1990 or later)
JG2 - Junior Girls (born 1993 or later)
JG3 - Junior Girls (born 1996 or later)
JG4 - Junior Girls (born 1999 or later)

Hope this helps....

Note that Worlds 2009 will not have Intermediate, Recreational, or Novice divisions. We are planning on offering Advanced Legends if PDGA agrees to it.  Women's Senior Grandmasters (Pro and Amateur) have typically not had enough competitors to hold a division, and Junior Girls (born 1990 or later) typically have had small fields as well.

Bill Burns (in Dallas TX) suggests we setup a Super-Class course. Ugh...

Honestly, I think it would be a good idea for public relations at the World's -- teach them how to "fly" BEFORE teaching them how to "play". It would be easier to hook newcomers with something that actually flies vs. something with a mind of it's own. But, we all know Distance is king.
