Robert, I don't like seeing it get negative either and thats not my style nor is it my intentions with this post here but let's also take a step back and look at the big picture and put our expectations in check for a moment. 

I too have played in a lot of tourneys (13 in Florida since 2011) and like you, Steve & Robert, I too enjoy checking out the round comparisons online once they are posted; however, I also have a lot of understanding, appreciation, and patience toward what goes into making a tournament successful and fun for the players.

I see the TD's tasks as being 3 fold.  First is tourney prep (before), then tourney operations (during), then post-tourney tasks (after).   I would also say that if I am judging the importance of these tasks as it pertains to how the players will experience the event, I would also prioritize them the same way.   Being prepared is the most important part of the TD's job as it makes the 2nd part (operation) go that much smoother.  Once the tournament is finished and all the players walk away having experienced a well prepared and well operated tournament, the post-tournament tasks truly take a back seat and are NOT the reason people sign-up the following year.  If a TD's handling of post-tourney tasks are the reason people sign-up the following year then I personally think they are playing tourneys for the wrong reasons.

Having said that, I want to bring up another observation.  I've been an IT professional for 13 years and in my career I have come to accept the fact that there are some extremely tech savy people out there who adapt new cutting edge methods of communication very quickly and then there are some not so tech savy people (like my parents who just got broadband last year).  What might take me 5 mins on a computer, might take someone else an hour or more.   What one person might do the "new school" way, another person may choose to do it the old school way and as long as it gets done there isn't a damn thing wrong with that.   I personally know some TD's that are very tech savy and they did have results posted quickly... Good for them, but I wasn't going to hold them to it and create an expectation out of it.

BFunky brought up a good point about Bryan Moore.  Yeah, he's directly affiliated with the PDGA and when he plays a tourney he often steps up and helps with the techy part of getting unofficial results posted online as quick as he can and thats cool and I appreciate that.  Bryan understands that TD's are very busy concentrating on preparation and operation and that some TD's are exhausted by the time it's all over with and so they choose to send in the results the old school way and so Bryan helps out in that area of the post-tourney tasks.  As exhausted as TD's might be at the end of the tourney, they still have reports to fill-out and send in and the TD's usually get those things done in a timely manner regardless of how fast people see the results of those actions.   Let me tell you with certainty that Barnett is NOT the only tourney that takes a while to see posted.  I can recall at least 3 or 4 other tournaments that I played that took just as long if not longer yet nobody seemed to go online and complain about it to the local clubs. 

Personally, I think the Barnett tourney was very well prepared for and was operated smoothly, especially considering it was a double-course B-tier tournament and Bob was the only TD on duty (although he had some great helpers that stepped up and worked their tails off as well).  Most other double-course B-tiers have 3 or 4 TD's working together and sometimes that still doesn't guarantee that things will be as well prepared and smooth going as I believe the Barnett tourney was.

All I'm saying is appreciate the fun you had at the tourney.  Appreciate the courses, the competition, the comradery of your fellow players and when you are finally home kicking back relaxing thinking of what an awesome time you had at the tourney, drop the rest of your expectations right there and exercise some patience going forward.  Thats all.

I have been watching this board for the last couple weeks since playing barnett tourney and just joined today to your club for the specific reason to say what i gotta say. I will start with i am in disbelief of the amount of negative attitude surronding the posting of scores and round ratings. I have played in quite a few tourneys so far and every one i have played in i have liked being able to reveiw my round and compare it to others that played. with that being said i have also appreciated the turn around time i have experienced in other tourneys with being able to do so. however it seems that barnett traditionally for whatever reason is a lot slower than others and it isnt a big secret around the state. however i have to stand behind anybody that honestly makes a request as to why and when these will be posted. i find it outright rude to see someone ask then not only get a snippy answer but then pack mentality gets on board and everybody takes a shot at that person. So if u dont like people asking about when they can see their ratings and scores especially if its multiple years they have asked DO A BETTER JOB. just because you may find something unimportant to you does not mean it isnt important to the rest of the players in the world. always thought disc golf had a great community of people but right now i am not liking what i see.

Funny...good observation Dave. Almost like a strictly troll n flame thing huh? Nothing else on his mind in 2 years sounds odd.

What I find funny is that Waterboy's post is deja vu. Click on his profile and you will see this was his same B&M a year ago on this forum about results. He didn't like the slow results then yet came back again this year. Hmmmm....maybe playing in a tourney is actually more fun that some meaningless (in the big scheme of life) ratings.

It sounds like we have a new volunteer TD,  way to go WATERBOY.  Stepping up to the plate.
