Kool Keith - 2/8/2008 3:13 PMwait wait wait...I understand a conditional prize... like a grand prize. Advertising a tourney with a payout of xxxx.xx based on a coditional turnout. But does that mean that if he doesn't reach that number, that he should keep 100% of entry fees and offer no payout whatsoever to the winner?I don't guess too many people will be showing up the Williamsburg part 2.


probably not

and

probably not

I think they were talking about the Handi Am Scam this past year where the winner was to get a free ticket on some fantastic disc golf road trip and it didn't pan out so the winner was left with no payout at all.

Thats what I hear at least.

The only reason we would do 27 holes is if we have more than 24*5=120 competitors and we could do a ghost group if necessary.

Well, I'm used to playing two 24s at most events because of Hudson Mills' layout so I'm not complaining at all. If, we set up for 27 will we be able to decide after reg if the extras are needed?

I don't play many CC's, but I'd push boone back a year, to see how it turns out. And then do the AJ/camping deal.

The # of extra holes could be optional and decided upon by the T.D. at the players meeting, dependent on the turnout.
Matt is right, more than 120 is not likely - but since it is a proposed, combined event (BID/CCS), there is a possibility.
I guess a good indicator would be the first combined event at Turtle/Monroe, eh?

I think all things considered, 100 people would be a pretty good turnout at Ox, and a 24 hole layout would mean only a few fivesomes.

We had 72 last year at OX.
Based on this, we should expect less than 120 entrants.
Still, IF we had 2 courses the rounds WOULD be faster.
We could potentially play in threesomes.

Also consider...,
Was there a PDGA event that weekend?
As I recall there was actually a Sunday tourney in the area???

Yes, there was a two-day C tier affectionately known as the Buckeye Memorial Classic that was changed to a one day event to accommodate CCSers and then nobody showed for the BMC. Nobody missed the CCS to play just the BMC; so, I think the biggest factor was Memorial Day weekend and not conflicting tournaments.

John, being just a dumb farm boy from Georgia and then later losing my brain cells on the beaches of Florida for well over a decade...I was unaware that 'affectionately' had any meaning that could convey the feeling that I and others had for the BMC. I could assume that you are using sarcasm...but I've never...ever known you to use sarcasm. :)

Dave,

That ace pot you split with me at Monroe had to be more than your payout at the BMC... :0

This year, I see some big paydays for ya. Hopefully we'll see you at all the big A and B Tiers and you can slap blakely around at the local C tiers and take his money and make him cry.

Well, Dave, if you count the skins where your only challenge was not tripping over a stump on the way to all the cash then that makes sense. Lee that much maligned tourney was great from my perspective-three rounds in one day plus a final nine on the old course. It was one of the few times in my life when I spoke up about injustice and the respone was immediate. The point was that Oxford attendance wasn't affected by any local PDGA events.

None of the club members at the meeting wanted to run a raffle.

I got an idea Dave.
Why don't you raise the money some how to put into the course challenges?

I asked a simple question Matt, and if the club doesn't want to do it fine! Life goes on Matt, see you on the course!

Well, not to stir the pot any, but what, other than simple participation, is anyone required to do? If he benefits, he's simply a player who wins a lot.
I don't want anyone to feel as though they must be an outcast because they don't have the time, or simply don't want to put extra into the courses or club. Parks have traditionally taken care of everything for courses for decades. We've always managed to draw attendance for tournaments by simply playing for entry fees. It's good to want more in the way of work and sponsorship, but not at the expense of shaming people away.
