Sounds good and thank you. I can see where that has been weird in the past. We can assign a caddie for the weekend and avoid this while regulating what person tags along. So caddies will not be forced to take udisclive scores. Just asking bc they are paid and not a volunteer. If they do will they be considered a volunteer and be compensated accordingly I.e with disc or merchandise. Also is the Parking pass essentially a spectators pass?

It should be free. We as players needed to pay for our caddies at the challenge of goat hill. That was a golf course that also required you to pay $16 per seat in a golf cart. Onward the OTB Open, Portland Open, and Resistance Disc Open DID NOT REQUIRE Players or caddies to purchase a pass…

Here is where people can purchase a pass: https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/2021_DGLO_Parking_Pass_2021

Free admission is given to players, media, volunteers, and staff. In the past we allowed caddies free admission, but too many people claimed there were someone's caddy, and so we removed that allowance. We had one player try to allow 5 caddies into the event to walk with him, and had many other people abuse the system or have someone walking along with a player but not carrying a bag.

Will Caddys be allowed to practice the course with the person they are caddying for?

https://dglo.net/spectators/ Follow this link and purchase a spectator pass.

So maybe I'm stupid but this link takes me to a page to purchase a parking pass or a VIP pass. If caddies are required to have a spectator pass is that the VIP pass?

Adam you meaning to be commenting on the pro event or the amateur event? The minimum rating is for the pro event only. For the amateur, you need only be a member in good standing.

Adam Werth   March 9 at 6:05pm
