The ratings deadline was 2 weeks after the event and we did not get the report in before the deadline...

Is there a reason that PDGA still has this as unofficial results and thus not counted in the July Ratings recalculation?
John Minicuci June 5, 2012 at 12:36am
Results are posted. Please let us know if anything looks out of norm.
**Note on the AM3 Division Results: Kyle Johnson won after 3 holes of sudden death!
Congratulations to all of the divisional Winners!!!

@Larry, online registration closed after midnight Friday.
I was at FF all day today working on the course, playing in the doubles...
Lawrence Leonardi essentialdiscs.com June 2, 2012 at 4:29pm
Since this online registration has not worked in 3 days is someone going to be at firefighters today to take entries?

Yes, Online Registration closed as Friday ended.
There are some Open players playing, they did not pre-register.
Firefighters Park is a course where many people can score well, Open and AMs alike.
Therefore, unless we alter the course and make different layouts, which we have done, they will not play because it is a Players Rating negative to come out and shoot really well only to have an AM equal their score. So thank you Larry anyways but you have to understand the reasoning...

I think that the online registration was only open until Friday. You can pay today at noon dubs if you want to make sure you have a spot.
