Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

On a more serious note, in order to maintain the integrity of the system it's worth considering a separation of the qualification and seeding for T16, when the top Master will be provisionally seeded 15, that's a bit harsh on the number 2 seed from open... Qualify by placing but seeding by rating wo...

Oh cock... I'd like to recommend that at least 2, probably 3 people drop out!

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

There has been a Facebook invite that indicated normal T16 plus a stroke play event, so you'll have something to play in regardless of qualification

Re: Pure Putt 11 - Android Putting app for disc golf

Well welcome. We have a number of returning colonials in the fold, so you'd always be welcome if you're over this way!

The Scandinavian golfers I know do a lot of indoor practice, as they're basically under snow for half the year, so it would be worth getting in touch with Tapani Aulu

Re: Pure Putt 11 - Android Putting app for disc golf

Hey there! It'd be nice to put a name to a post...
You're obviously a disc golfer so I wouldn't call this spam, but if you get access to the main forum you may find a better place to talk about your app with people, so introduce yourself and get chatting!

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

With due respect stating that running a tournament with different formats may be difficult is footbag as an excuse for not to trying something different. Yes you may have tried something in the past and your experience is not being discounted (I too have done the same) but poo pooing it out of hand...

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

as long as you could get multiples of 16 to turn up. Aye, there's the real rub. No matter what clever format you have worked out for 12's, 14's etc, all it takes is a drop out to screw everything over. The beauty of T16 with strokeplay is you can easily 'promote' someone and retain the integrity of...

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

But 'back in the day' there were minimal events outside the Tour, little local scene etc. When the MODs 1 day event in Manchester attracted 30 players a month ago, there's no reason to think that there shouldn't be a highly popular strokeplay event alongside the T16. Back in the day you're correct....

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

I don't think the AGM has been at nationals for the last 4 or 5 years, it's typically the last tour event. Obviously this year it is, but it by no means has to be so that shouldn't be a factor. There have been plenty of Int ams at Nationals, because the format of having a PDGA rated strokeplay compe...

Re: Nationals 2016 - Manchester Oct 29-30

Not sure I'm buying it, logistically. Firstly I don't think we've had 16 Open players at an event this year, so the top 16 will inevitably need topping up from the top of the Masters/Am ranks, which would either greatly dilute those Top 8s, or if players preferred to stay in their division, massivel...

Re: Inclusiveness

Or the effect of over inclusiveness? For years I've seen people complain that the PDGA over focused on the top few % at the detriment of the amateur masses, now the Pro end of the market is complaining the opposite!

Re: BDGA tour #10 Mendip Masters

Hi Nick Your entry fee always includes some level of goods and services, be they green fees, prizes, players packs, portaloo hire etc. Each venue has their own expenses profile and has to budget for that.

Re: Inclusiveness

As an alternative scoring idea, how about the cumulative total of your best X rated rounds? Presume you mean the cumulative total of the ratings of your best (10) rated rounds? That doesn't necessarily reward consistent play over whole tournaments though... Yes, that is what I meant. The reward of ...
