Rosedale Winter Wonderland - Unsanctioned
« on: November 06, 2012, 01:26:15 PM »
Hello everyone,

I am going to run an unsanctioned event at Rosedale Park on December 9th playing one round up top and another round down under.  i will post the hole set up once i decide on it.  As always pre-registration helps with the speed of the tournament process but since it is unsanctioned, I ask that you at least contact me to let me know you are coming so I can have a card made for you ahead of time.

Because it is later in the year and players seem to want the un sanctioned this time of year and it keeps the cost down and the money going more back to the players.  I didn't see a value to sanctioning this event and I run plenty of sanctioned events so a few non sanctioned seem reasonable.

Also these unsanctioned events give us Advanced players a chance to play up and get some experience in the Open Division.

I guess we could do that at a sanctioned event anyway, but you'd have to turn down cash.

Do you get the value of cash in a voucher form if you turn down the cash?

It depends on the TD, most of my events I do allow it or I at least make sure you receive something

Why would you turn down cash at an unsanctioned event?

If you guys are into that sort of thinking....I'll start running events every weekend!!   ;D

Matt, IMO if you receive any prizes while playing Open, then you have cashed in Open and lose Am status.  If you plan on retaining Am status while playing in the Open field, you should be doing it for the experience and not for the recompense.

There was some confusion on my previous post. I meant for sanctioned events only if there is a voucher opportunity and I realize now that some will offer and some will not. Lets be honest I know I'm not ready for open yet but I want to be and so that's why I posed this question. I want to play in the open division because I know that will make me better. I wanted to get an answer because leading up to am worlds I'd like to play a few open tournaments to get a feel for the added pressure that may come with playing against better people and am worlds is the biggest bagger tourney ever. I want to Introduce myself to this level of conpetition due to my drive to get better.

Perry:

Reclassification

and what actually happens when you reclassify in a season? slightly more complicated

You'll still be able to play AM in A, B, and C tier tourneys IF you are in the rating cap (< 970), but you wont be invited to any AM majors. You can always classify back to an amateur next year, or pay the full Pro membership cost.

But this is unsanctioned.. so make $$$ saaaan.
