To help address the sandbagging issues at the Michigan State Championships, a motion was made and the Motion was passed:
a. For the Am2/Am3 (including the women) divisions in Featured Events, if there is a player that takes 1st or 2nd place and that player has never had a PDGA membership the Featured Event will deduct from that player’s payouts $35 to cover the cost of buying them a PDGA membership.
b. The remaining $10 was initially paid by the player at entry.
c. The last missing $5 is because the MDGO is an Affiliate Club.
d. Non-current PDGA members do not apply.
e. The MDGO will reimburse $17 to the FE to help cover any loss.
f. It is HEAVILY stressed that this needs to be advertised so the player base is aware of this prior to the event.
This was passed to address the issue of players not having player ratings. Even if they are not current, the TD does get a file from the PDGA that includes the player's rating. less

Something to ponder 2: What is the best way to run a fly mart on a single day tournament? We have an opportunity to get a few local clubs involved and would love to see their products on the tables. We could set up a tent away from Tourney Central...
John Minicuci July 30, 2013 at 1:14pm
Something to ponder since many tournaments get hit with the same: "Can I cash out early because..." question: do the Open players mind having us PayPal their winnings to them? We do not mind and we understand everyone has somewhere to be sometime, including the Amateurs and the tournament staff. We are just asking to see what the general mindset is out there and improve the overall experience...
