especially since there were so many people angry about it.
Knowing what I now know, I do think that someone should have ensured that there were enough 800+ rated players in EVERY pool, to ensure the best, most accurate possible results. Perhaps this is something that can be looked at in the future.
The PDGA requirement is 45%, not 50%. The payout sucks at Bowling Green Ams because they take out so much for Bowling Green Pros. Don't expect the PDGA to do anything about it if they fell short. The PDGA collects $2500 in player fees from that tournament and a several dozen new members.First off, a big Congratulations to Blaine! Well done!
So does anybody have any insight on why they didn't payout 50% of each division and why the payouts were so lame for anyone that didn't win? I was in the top 3rd of my division and didn't get anything...I didn't mind, cause I played like crap and didn't deserve anything, but I know MANY people were angry about the payout. I think they gave 1 disc to alot of people and it was one that was already in the player's packs.
First, when it is not windy at BG AMs? LOL
Second, why do you think that the PDGA had ANYTHING to do with what players played in what pools????
Third, your player ratings is not determined by the PDGA ratings of the players you are playing with on any given day. It does not matter if you shoot with 1000 rated players or 950 rated players. I am sure that Chuck can tell you this in great detail. Also, all the ratings that you now see are the preliminary ratings. They will change once the TD report is turned in telling who played what courses on what days.
