Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

... and forcing all 920+ players into Open wasn't and not paying out in Open or player packs in am and, and and, don't open that can of worms.

I can't actually see the issue looking through the agreement of reporting all as MA1 and then awarding prizes at my own arbitrary cut offs.

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

One MA1 also makes the idea of inter club competitions much easier to manage.

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Exactly! You've forced the hand of every other TD in the country to do it your way. You've removed all choice from other TDs, as if we do it a different way anyone not playing MA1 suffers. But what is the choice i'm removing? A Pointless points race with no real structure or meaning? I'm not stoppi...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

No, not at all, all events can do it exactly the same way? This whole system has been about TD discretion to have divisions to suit the needs of the players they see attending but also work into a bigger picture. Pdga report looks like this: OPEN 5 players FPO 2 players MPO 4 players MJ1 0 players M...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

That's very different to a tour organiser intentionally screwing over the entire process, and ruining it for everyone else. Without ever even giving it a chance, condemning it even in its trial season. OK, stop it now. Each post has a personal attack on me, have a debate not an argument. I am not t...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

The same stroke that is created by a one day event set up a day before the BC qualifiers close and all the players that want to qualify play that one event in MA1 The system is flawed. It has good intentions, but the intentions don't actually give the players anything more than lipservice. Points ga...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

A couple of things there. Benefits: Other than the financial incentive, it's true the BDGA still needs to see if it can get the insurance benefit sorted. The Club League idea would also be a big pull I think and points from all divisions would apply to that. . Agreed, possibly, if the club thing wo...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

That being the case I don't see why you would want to report everyone as MA1. I get asked a lot of questions privately from a host of different people. One similar question that still keeps coming up from lower rated players during the last week is a variation of "why do I want BDGA membership if m...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Novice, noun: a person new to and inexperienced in a job or situation Can't see anything demeaning in that, it's a perfectly sound description. Wasn't having a go at you, it's the PDGA term for anyone 850 rated and below - novice does not describe the bulk of those players and is fairly demeaning.

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

To me you're over complicating things massively to try to overlay a separate divisional structure over the PDGA ones. It's what we've been doing for years! All i'm trying to do is find a way to sensibly include players on two different systems, I think this works. for Open/masters/fpo there is no d...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

It would still seem to be just as relevant as last season, where only AM1 results counted in powerstats. Not sure why that changes under the new system Because of this https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15V_I2APudPVgTyahiqEWqn_OnFKmHmFD8JOUfw9k-Vo/edit?usp=sharing All current PDGA UK based memb...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Is MA2 effectively becoming redundant for this season? I can't see much sense in this offering unless we are encouraging lots of players out of the Open division?

Yup, I was hoping there would be a brand spanking new Quarry Park clubhouse open by the end of the year for the MODS ones, not sure there will be room in the container!
