And I thought I should mention there's a boatload of folks going up to the Buck Creek event... Not sure if there is any great solution.

We have one other option, but I still need to talk to the Park director first about it.
We could move to next weekend. Saturday 26th is the Great seal scream but Sunday 27th is open as far as I know.

Would this work best for most of the players?
Thoughts?

How about flip-flopping CCS dates (play Lincoln Ridge this Saturday & AJ Jolly on the 2nd)?

Just got off the phone with the Parks, Our only option is this Sunday, all the other dates are taken.

We are going to have to use this Sunday the 20th. I am truly sorry for this mistake. I will take full responsibility for this. I know this will effect many players and their running for the points series.

I will look into swapping the last 2 event dates as suggested above. Thanks Jeff...

Ok everyone, after several phone calls I was able to work out a venue swap.
This Saturday the 19th we will be at Banklick/Lincoln Ridge - Meet at the back shelter by Hole 5 (shelter 1 is reserved)
November 2nd we will be at AJ Jolly, and yes I know the Stillwater Open is the same day.
This is final, please help us spread the word.

The switch of venue is a good option. Those same dates are held for everyone to keep there plans. The only plans that change is driving. See everyone at banklick Saturday. Thanks a million for the switch.

Good catch by Fred also. Otherwise we would probably not be playing at all.

I've never played in a tourney. The ace race was the first organized thing I played in. I want to play tomorrow. The rain that's supposed to be in the morning and the schedule change do you guys think anyone will show up?

Yep. We'll play in almost all conditions. Had one round called this summer with a lightning storm that wouldn't stop. So c'mon out: it's an awesome course for a first challenge. Bring changes of clothes, especially socks, and ziplock bag a bunch of towels to dry off discs. Of course, we all want to use Murphy's Law for good, so if everybody comes prepared, including umbrellas, THEN the rain will hold off!

Man played 1 round at ccs parked up front they said hour break we finished right by where I parked still people playing behind us. I went straight to my truck left at 1:12 still people playing. Got back at 1:15 people already on tees went back to the shelter another player told me take a 7 join your team. Nobody there no way to find my team guys teeing on their second hole. Granted I was 5 minutes late from my end of round no way it was an hour from last in. No way to find out your starting tee is just wrong leave the info up. I'm sure the last in got about 40 minutes between rounds. If they were going to make second round start at 2:10tellus at the start. I thought it was 1 hour from last group in or let us know how it's planned beforehand. This was my first event and needless to say feel like I got screwed and so did those who got less than an hour. I love disc golf was looking for a goodtine ended up feeling ripped off. I guess it's an hour from the Guy running it's last hole. Why would the groupings be down?

Maybe I should sleep on it before I posted but I drove home feeling like I don't want to play this game anymore. I know I will because I love it but for gossamer leave the groupings up. My first event. Everyone should get an hour. There were several out when I left so I know it didn't happen. I should have drove back and asked but I thought everyone got an hour. I could have joined my group before their second hole and taken a 7 I just think it's wrong to have that in place but no way to find what group you're even in is poor. I am very disenchanted with this now. If you say an hour between rounds then it should be last group gets an hour. That didn't happen. Today with the rain maybe longer. I feel like I just threw my money in a shredder I had no chance of winning but I wanted to finish.

I wasn't at the shelter for the lunch time part. My round ended at 1:10 and people were still on the course an hour is plenty long enough. I was just there in time for the morning meeting and I just heard an hour between rounds. I didn't think about going back to check on lunchtime. I saw people still playing so I thought the hour hadn't started yet. My first ccs I wasn't aware of a meeting between rounds for the 2nd round start time now I know. I missed out. I will pay closer attention in the morning I don't know if that was mentioned or not. I'm over it I just wanted to finish my first one. Next time I'll finish.

yea that sucks that it happened but you should always check for yourself between rounds cause people can be wrong if you ask and the group behind you could have handed their card to someone else and just been practicing we had a similar thing happen at idlewild last year a couple friends and I went out to lunch and when we got back they were just packing up the boards and blew two minutes one of our guys was late to his tee and lost a disc trying to catch up on no15
