Wow, I've never deleted so many posts. If you feel like commmenting on the event, feel free... but this thread for the tournament not for people to make snide comments to others.
As for hole 9... I'll call it now, you all play LONG 9. As for floater groups, I'm not opposed to them... they are better than a 5some... I might even explore the idea of a couple more holes...

Can't we all just get along and be happy!?! :)

As for long hole 9...its the only true separation hole on the course as well as a ratings changer hole..why wouldn't Open and Am1 play it.

For everyone complaining about backups and floaters, there is no reason to complain. What happens when you lose your disc? A BACKUP happens. What happens when you are playing behind a slow group who takes their full allowed time on EVERY shot? A BACKUP happens. IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. Matt and Erin have done a GREAT job with every tourney I have played in at sleepy. They accommodate everyone and the tourney still goes off without a hitch.

Matt and Erin have done a GREAT job with every tourney I have played in at sleepy. They accommodate everyone and the tourney still goes off without a hitch.
Reasons why tournaments take longer is because last min drops and unplanned added players. It sounds like that Erin has a plan already to keep the flow moving and everyone happy.
And as for modified Hole 9, I posted my question to adjust my division if needed to play regular 9. And when Matt said all or none, I messaged him my opinion. IF WE PLAY SHORT 9 IT WILL BE FOR THE BEST FOR ALL SO WE KEEP EVERYTHING MOVING!
Simply put, if you can't control it don't worry about. And know Matt and Erin will do everything they can to keep problems from happening

Good thing I have all the way until the night b4 the tourney to decide if I should pass my spot on.
Lance Bayliss October 18, 2012 at 10:00am
Right josh...which may happen, which is unfair that I sign up for tourneys on time before they are full, wnd then you are just gonna make changes and add spots to accommodate a few stragglers, that couldn't get signed up intime., instead of making the majority of the field happy. I play certain tourneys based on the TD because they do things to make there tourneys run smooth and take care of the field.

I was just stating what Matt posted earlier about hole 9. It might not even happen so hold tight and we will confirm with you by tomorrow what is happening.

For what it's worth, I'm totally fine with floater groups and happy that Matt is doing his best to accommodate all interested players. If it's that much of a problem for you personally, you can always drop out and make room for those still on the wait list.
Shaun Adkins October 18, 2012 at 8:37am
Please don't make open play the short bucket on 9.
Erin Oakley October 18, 2012 at 8:20am
Eric, yes the same normal 3 extra holes. And if hole 9 is shortened, it will be for all and for flow so there won't be as long of a wait at the tee.
Harold Fernando October 17, 2012 at 10:29pm
Thanks Matt! I doubt it will happen though...too many things to do and prolly not enough people would volunteer....sounds like we'll be bringing sandwiches!
Matt Rinker October 17, 2012 at 4:50pm
I'll look into th food for you Harold... generally it takes some (like you) volunteering to cook so the TDs can do their thing.
TO ALL... If the waitlist drops to 6 players or less by the friday before the event, they will have a spot in the tournament and I will have 2 floater groups of 3somes. It may make the round longer for some... but then no one gets turned away.
