The pig page explains how the entry fee works, please look at the "Amatuer Divisions Information" it has details on the player's pack.

Today, if you are headed to Lincoln Ridge for Wednesday night doubles and you want to sign up for the Pig, you can stop by DiscNDat. Dan has agreed to take any sign ups today since I will not be able to make it to Doubles.

I updated the pig registration with the latest sign ups. 

The signup page will be open through tonight.  I will be at the CCS in the AM taking sign ups but only prior to the round, since I have to leave.

Here is the latest registration list.

I hear there is an opening to run this tourney next year. Are you lining up to be the TD for it moses? I like your idea a lot better, but im sure your going to have one BIG headache the day of with all those late signups! And what if your 28.00 shirts you bought for the players packs doesnt fit 300 lbs. WIllie, and he *****es to you for an hour about how you treated him deferently then everyone else.  All while your suppose to be a TD of a tourney... Doesnt sound fun does it? Just put yourself in the shoes of the TD for a minute, and im sure you can figure out why he ended the registration when he did!
BTW, i couldnt get into this tourney either because i couldnt get the money until this week, but i understand completely where the TD is coming form by ending the registration when he did!

When Pig's Fly will I run a tournament if this is the thanks you get. It is unusual for a cut-off date to be this early but, I like the trend if it starts one. Boy Scouts love disc golf: Be Prepared or is that Peppard, huh B.A.?

The information for the deadline has been around since the tournament date was announced. We've all had plenty of time to get our registration in. I'm sorry someone finally stuck to their word and did what they said they would do. I support Brad and the decisions he has made..and I'm proud that he sticking to his word.

Don't cave in Brad!!!

Deadlines are put in place for reasons ! It gives the td time to order and make sure everyone is covered for the packages they recieve. All tourneys should have a deadline ! We played in the PGDA at Pike and of course no deadline for sign ups. It rained like **ll that day and now Jeff has about 50 discs that he got stuck with. Is it fair for a TD to have to deal with that ??

Thats pretty tough to do in a trophy only tournament.

It takes a while to print shirts which is the reason for the cutoff. I was with Brad last year till after 1am the night before the pig working on the board cards. You don't understand the pressure and extra work that is involved with running an event. Sure you just show up, play some golf, and go home but the TD has to be there before you to set up, deal with people crying about everything, and clean up after the fact. And they don't get compensated for it but they do get complaints from people that are unwilling to step up and do anything to help.

So while you are enjoying your rounds, remember that brad is playing AND running the tournament so he's pulling double duty. Lets keep it civil and keep the petty complaints to yourself.

And besides, the less people in your division means the less people you have to beat to win idea

i'm not complaining just to complain it's a reasonable concern to wonder why the cuttoff is two weeks early. Sure, t shirts and trophies come into concern, but u can easily fix this by not giving them t-shirts because they signed up to late. Odd huh? how that was that hard to fix. yeah they don't get a T-shirt but at least they get to play. I have all the respect in the world for brad for stepping up and running it. That's not my problem. And if help is needed he can ask. Once again i understand why the deadline is in place, and yes i would love to help run a tourney to someday run one myself. there are plenty of people in cincinnati that would help. it doesn't have to fall on one person. And real quick to reference what u highlighted Ams such as me enjoy playing in tourneys to get plastic not to get a trophy, and i apologize i'm not a pro i'm working on that so i don't have to deal with this kind of thing. My problem is not with Brad. i apologize i stated a good idea to better a tournament i have been looking foward to all year.
