Back on topic...

We will be trialling a modified Finals format, with the Open and Int finals going out first and the Adv's going out last. I've had a theory that Open Finals are poorly attended as the potential gallery is already following people on the course. I might be wrong, but you don't know until you try!

The Open division has been too affected by their big money payouts and have lost touch with the common man. The crowds have deserted them as a result and embraced the amateur "everyman". Expect to see a similar situation in the premier league in ensuing seasons as crowds trickle down to the more affordable lower leagues.

:wink:

maybe.

I'd particularly like to see more Advanced Am and Intermediate Am players. Open players may well consider that they need to spend time with their loved ones, and there will be some good tv to watch this weekend. :wink:

If the weather is nice i'll be getting the BBQ out tomorrow evening so get some burgers if you want a cheap option for food, if it's really rubbish though i'll be going home to my nice warm bed. I'm gonna pray to the weather gods.

I've got to leave on Saturday night at about 7ish but you're welcome to use the BBQ, it's gas so no need for coals.

Saturday night BBQ sounds perfect with a few putting games and a cold beverage or two :)

Awesome, how many of these are rookies? I'm just interested if this was a good idea and something we should be doing at all tournaments.

Good to see a member of the Federal Republic of Yorkshire has joined up, more Gold Medals than most countries and now an Open division Disc Golfer, is there anything this small Republic can;t achieve? :D

Is he from North Yorkshire or some other part? It makes a big difference...

I live in North Yorkshire (Harrogate) but I haven't seen him round our way at all. Is he sure he's from Yorkshire?

Yes, North Yorkshire. And that's the county we've just arrived in. We're sitting in the car discussing the fact that Charlie has remembered everything except his discs.. Doh!
Can anyone lend him any of the following please?:

Blizzard wraith
Squall
Light meteor

These would fill the gaps that i can't fill from my spares.

Many thanks for your consideration. Any swimmers would be replaced.
The excitometer is picking up now :)
