Re: BDGA#7 - The Lancashire Hotshot - 20th/21st June 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed it! My comments on the course would be pretty much along the lines of what Tom and Bruce have already said. Wow, you gave yourselves a lot of work to get the course in place. Thank you Jaime, Ali Chris et al. Beautiful location Great tee signs. I didn't end up referring to the map...

Re: Isle of Mull Disc Golf Classic - March 26-27 2016

Mull started off being at Easter, but then had a spell of being on the May Bank holiday, and personally I think that is a better date, especially if Easter is early. A few weeks makes quite a difference in the weather, and more especially nature puts on a fantastic Spring show in late April and Earl...

I have had to lie to register.
The form does not allow me to register with a BDGA number of 1 :shock:

The tournament that will serve this year also as 2015 Slovak Discgolf Championships and will be held on July 4-5 i...

Re: BDGA#5 - Croydon Cyclone - 2/3 May 2015

Sorry, but I'm going to have to pull out, as I don't have anyone to staff QP in my absence. I'll pass the trophy onto someone to take down.

Re: BDGA#5 - Croydon Cyclone - 2/3 May 2015

The website refers to being eligible to register as a master if you are 40 at the time of the tournament. PDGA defines master as being 40 or older at the end of the calendar year.

Tournaments in Slovakia

Last year I played the Smolenice Open and had a great time on a great course (and I won, which was nice :) . I can thoroughly recommend playing overseas events, and Slovakia is cheap to get to and cheap to stay too. Ryanair fly to Bratislava from Birmingham, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Luton, and Stansted...

Re: Homepage Photo 27th November deadline

Oh dear, sorry to hear that you have been underwhelmed by the response. To my mind the most urgent thing is to put up the 2015 calendar or reference to it on the homepage, so that anyone looking at the home page will see that we didn't stop functioning in 2013, and that there is a useful resource on...

Irish Tournament with Paul McBeth + Nate Sexton

Ken Jarvis has asked me to sound out people on holding a tournament at the new course west of Dublin on July 4th with clinics run by 3 time reigning world champion Paul McBeth and Nate Sexton. It's not a done deal as yet, but if it looks like there will be enough interest in people traveling to Irel...

Re: The Battle at Bluebell Woods - British Open '15

Please allow players to pay in GBP to a nominated bank account. It did really irritate me last year to have to use Paypal and convert to euros, creating unnecessary costs for the transaction and currency exchange, and then no doubt more costs for Tom on converting a good part of the entry fees back ...

Re: BDGA AGM 2014

How are points awarded? Is it based on number of people you beat in your division or is it 100 points for first place etc What did you perceive to be the strengths and weaknesses of the system? How many events counted? Sounds like the number of events went up with the growth of courses, did the numb...

Re: leaflets promoting disc golf

I'm a fan of the A4 tri-fold leaflets. Having more info means that info can be conveyed at the point at which we have someone's attention, there will always be some attrition when someone has to take a look at a later date. Wherever possible it is desirable to target messages to specific audiences, ...

Good tournie, thanks for organising things Chris.
