Per PDGA guidelines, we will be using the PDGA Ratings Update published on January 10th to determine division eligibility. At this time, any adjustments to players division and pool will be made on this day and notification will be sent via email to any impacted players. This will also allow any additional spots that are open to allow for these changes will be released to the waitlist.

From the PDGA:

If you have pre-registered, the TD may allow you to remain in that division as long as the event is within two weeks of the ratings posting date. If you did not pre-register before the new ratings were posted, then you are expected to play in the division (or higher) where your new rating now resides.

The February PDGA Ratings Update will be published on February 14th, which is within 2 weeks of the ratings posting date.

Refund policy

All refunds will be handled in accordance with PDGA Competition Manual 1.03 Withdrawals and Refunds.
