Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

^ this.. Your right Neil in that there needs to be something in it for the TD to want to run a BDGA event, hopefully the chance to attract more players to there event cause they will amass points means the sanctioning is worthwhile. There is also the need in turn though for the TD to make their even...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

yes, my initial thoughts were to have a points champion, but on further thought and discussion we downgraded this. Winning the points is a noteable achievement, that player has invested time and effort into amassing the highest number. However, as it is possible that it might be the person that has ...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Top 16 rated players regardless of division. Should the Am(MA1)/Master champ be guaranteed a spot? what about the FPO champ? Why not just the top rated players in the country?? Points system appears confusing but ultimately is relatively straight forward. You get points for every player you beat, yo...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Since it is an experimental type of year I would rather think the Bdga would allow the Euro Tour to be included in '17 to see if anyone is excluded or complains given the ET TD has tools to deal with such issues. (If given the opportunity again) We could host a 3 day event for up to 150 players eas...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Del, i think my wording can be clarified on this. As i dont plan on omitting Masters/pro/am only events if thats what a TD wants to run. I will rephrase, because if it reads in this manner - and re-reading for the 100th time, its not clear. TDs can run any event or any size shape scale they want as ...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Great idea, I hope this gets approved at the agm. Being pedantic. Tour structure does not need membership approval, there doesn't have to be a vote on this. To qualify that, im not saying this is a done deal, this is now the opportunity for all to air views, concerns and thoughts all to be taken in...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

British Tour Championships - will the BDGA have any say over pricing for this? (wouldn't want people to get priced out of the deciding comp of the year!) If there are going to be three flagship BDGA events, 2x of which are qualifiers only it feels like the BDGA should have final say and ownership o...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

Great stuff, thanks Phil! For a TD running the event tour champs event if you haven't filled out by a certain stage would it be ok to open to non BDGA members and/or only have the Juniors and womens spaces protected to a certain date, beyond that it's a free for all? Or will this be a totally close...

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

So if I am reading your statement correctly then any tournament that holds spaces for any division will automatically disqualify the event from the Bdga Tour. correct? Cheers. Not at all, TDs can run any event they wish and any format they wish (as long as individual stroke play). That includes reg...

Re: BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

The Eurotour event will not be on the BDGA points race as sign up protocol would not allow players to complete on a level playing field. Hi Phil, could you please elaborate on this statement? If I'm reading it correctly the registration stages set forth by Pdga Europe for the Euro Tour is the issue...

BDGA 2017 Tour proposal

All, Plans for the 2017 tour have been put on hold pending the AGm due to tour structure being one topic of debate. After much consideration and discussion with players and TDs, we have got to an agreed proposal. I see the proposed tour structure as a great step forward for the BDGA, i hope you agre...

Firstly, any indication as to how many campers so far, please?
I wouldn't want to be a solitary pop-up tent amongst all those rich people in the fancy barns!

There are 41 campers in total so no fear of being lonely.
