Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Division has to stay for the whole season, though I would encourage players to move up to their most competitive division. otherwise we get some unfortunate scenarios - by way of an example, Newbie Int-am has qualified for MA3 championships by playing and winning in that division all year, but on t...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

By way of another example, at your mod event you have 6 MPO, 2 MA1 and 13MA2. You make the decision locally that MA1 doesnt work for MODs so are not going to run it, so will wrap it into MPO, but if a player specifically wants to play, when it is reported to PDGA it needs to be split out. (even if ...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Also on a more inclusive matchplay format I have a model that works up to 128 players over a 2 day tournament which splits into a bowl, plate, cup, shield + another four system. Seeded by rating you play 9 holes in a group of 4, so 2 different matches going on in each group, at the end of nine holes...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Thanks Phil! Couple of questions. Is the rating cap on an event by event basis with the rating current at time of registration or time of event, not held for the full year as previous? Does this matter? is there an ints/rec points race, or even an ams points race for that matter? I can't work out if...

Re: MODS#9 Bedworth - 22nd October 2016

Bedworth Results and overall tour standings updated. Barring something bizarre it has pretty much crowned James Luton as the inaugural MODS Open division champion. Am battle is incredibly intriguing, if Adam Willetts can beat Sam Thomas in just one head to head it might be enough to hold him off. In...

Re: Conflict of interest policy

Just happened to pop up next to an article about the PDGA board members for 2016/17

It seems that the COI's are all listed publicly for all members to see?

Sorry, that was a genuine question, reading back it did look a bit snarky, apologies that wasn't my intention.

Re: International Coordinator Report 2015-16

On a national basis it was a quieter year. Wuh? The years seen the most change in the game in the UK since, well, ever Quaich and SEDGS tours both developed in their second year, MODS kicked off to huge success, BDGA totally reorganised and strengthened their structure, intentions and focus in the ...

Re: BDGA Awards 2016

Is the vote for just this seasons contribution/spirit (wording on doc suggests season only) or is it a lifetime thing? (Suggested by only being able to win once)

Re: Notification of an AGM

Hi,

With the awards, are they current year only or are they lifetime contribution/spirit etc? If they can only be won once shouldn't it be a lifetime thing?

No, it's called the professional disc golf association, not the professional disc golfers association. Its worded well to be a coverall organisation for ALL disc golf, not just for a few players who want to make a living playing it.
