There has been a Facebook invite that indicated normal T16 plus a stroke play event, so you'll have something to play in regardless of qualification

Not being a regular Facebook user...

I've looked at the Manchester Disc Golf Group page, no sign of an invite.

then I looked at the BDGA Facebook page, no sign of an invite.

Can someone please help a non-Facebook user find an invite to the Nationals, please?

Thanks

Might be because it is just a Facebook event at this point

Thanks - although I have no idea what a 'Facebook Event' is!

Will non-Facebook users be allowed to enter this event?

Apologies - genuinely confused by what's going on here.

UPDATE: I managed to click through to what looks like a page advertising the event, but then am asked to.
please sign up to this facebook event if you are planning to come
.

How do I do that? I don't see a button that says 'Sign Up to this event' anywhere on the page.

Help.

Please.

No details as yet. We're waiting for them to tell us more. I guess accommodation near the course (Stretford Park?) would be the best bet?

Still think it is possible to have a Masters matchplay event on the Saturday or Sunday. Only needs four of us - anyone up for that?

Oh cock... I'd like to recommend that at least 2, probably 3 people drop out!

On a more serious note, in order to maintain the integrity of the system it's worth considering a separation of the qualification and seeding for T16, when the top Master will be provisionally seeded 15, that's a bit harsh on the number 2 seed from open...

Qualify by placing but seeding by rating would seem sensible

Thanks Mark

Is there an invitation anywhere please - with details of costs, timings, facilities, ... etc.? or do you get costs once you've completed the sign up form? the sign up form says your place will not be confirmed until you have paid so need to know how much to pay :?
