PDGA raises bar for 2017 event.

As an apparent response to the registration debacle at 2016 world ams, the PDGA has created or raised the point requirements for 2017. (see < http://www.pdga.com/announcements/2017-pdga-worlds-invitation-requirements-posted >) In the case of MS1 division hopefuls, 100 points will be required. Looking at today's top scorers in the World AM MS1 division: some would not have been eligible according to their 2015 points. That means many of us wishing to play next year will have to stack up some points before this year is over.

Jimmy, he said something about signing up as Advanced. Does that get you more points? At 2 per league, we'd need a daily one. :)

2.5 for AM1 and 2 for AM2. Not much difference there.

I'll see if I can't run this guy down on FB. His name was James, so that should be easy. We'll get to the bottom of his 400 league points.

Discussion topics:

Masters+ events have occurred in prior years and there is at least one this year (Michigan Masters, June 11, Reed park). Much gratitude goes to those who organize such events. Limited time and space considerations can effect the opportunities for the less popular divisions in some of the big all-divisions tournaments; organizers can usually predict the player spots needed, but they cannot easily build the courses in a vicinity to insure that smaller divisions have equitable access to quality cou ... more

The 2016 Michigan Senior Olympics Disc Golf Tournament will be held at Oakland University Disc Golf Course in August. I am targeting the 21st as it is within the Michigan Senior Olympics 2 week window and I am running a Featured Event the week before. Saturday the 20th is a possibility but it is also Dream Cruise Saturday so that is a tough one ...

PDGA Tier B is given...

For the May 9 Masters Open in Ypsilanti. Not only is it now Tier B, the number of holes look to be more manageable. The popularity of this event was high on the recent survey (unsanctioned group). Expect more registrations from those waiting for the tier approval.

Looks to be a good event. Honestly, I was kind of waiting until Terry kind of got his act together. There was a serious lack of information for a while. I also, like some, tried to sign up and found the mandatory t shirt cost. I understand that has been fixed. I will work on my schedule here soon and hope to sign up.

I'm in. Looking forward to this event.
