hello again all.. after my posting yesterday i found i needed to get some other perspectives on this so i sent an email out to several friends, peers and mentors  (some disc golf players some tds and some just regular people) asking them to read what has been posted here.i have gotten several responses of varying ideas and suggestions. i threw out everthing i found negative in those and stuck with the four things that came up the most.

1. and it is going to sound like a slam andrew the concensus was that your use of qoutes or misqoute as the case is was just silly and you bring no credit to yourself by using half of what was said to vindicate your own ends.

2. i have to wholeheartedly thank you for the fun tournament you guys provided and let you know that i love your course..

3. i truly apologize for any toes i have stepped on or feelings i have hurt was not my intention to start a pissing contest with other players in the state only bring to light the ideals instilled in me when i starting to play the sport and maybe open some closed eyes guess i failed in that aspect.

4. finally to let you guys know as a player who spent money to come play your tourney support your charities and your local buisness that even though i said in an earlier post i would i find that this whole thing has left a non positive feeling with me and that only on a casual basis will i ever come to barnett again. best of luck to all of you in the future....

thanks for your input on the matter andrew. no one made me king nor do i pretend i am. i didnt come here with the intention to be a king or anyone above anyone else. i said exactly what i meant to say. i didnt enter your forum to champion anyone the fact is several people have asked about ratings and when they can see them because one individual got the raw deal beacause of the same questions and feelings i am also having. i decided to voice my opinion in what i thought was a open forum. as to my usless bitching and moaning as you so elegantly put it as i said its an open forum dont like what you see me saying dont read it. as i can exercise the same for your rude and disrespectful post. to answer your question i dont( f bomb excluded) expect you to do anything for him or for me or anyone else with the same question other than possibly get on board with finding a way not to make this an issue in the future. all the typing as collective would have had these posted a week ago. in the immortal words of forrest gump that all i going to say bout dat......we now return you to your normal program......

I am going to waste my time once on this issue, because that is all it is worth:

quote by Robert:

" 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. "

following quote from Robert:

"or you can use it for the cornerstone for the wall you build for yourselves. dont matter to me i be there next year to beat you on your own course......"

Who died and made you king of this forum? You come in here from nowhere preaching how 'bad' our tastes are, protecting some idiot who thinks he not going to get some flak for disrespecting our club as a whole, and then you sneak in little snippets yourself...

Waterboy got very polite responses from multiple people here and he then arrogantly snapped back at them. What the fuck do you expect us to do? send him a fruit cake? Welcome to life, its a Rollercoaster ride and everyone's invited.

Robert, stop being a hypocrite and quite this useless bitching and moaning, your the only one who is keeping this topic alive.

Yes terry in my ctp i recieved a star destroyer with road rash on it and the sweet playerys cup stamped buzz had scratches all over it i was kinda wow also.

so i am not going to waste my breath or fingertips trying to explain how i felt upon reading recent posts in this forum. the truth of the matter is as a whole you as a group club or loose association of individuals whatever the case may be have the oppurtunity to use the the previous things as a stepping stone to make a better tournament for all involved. or you can use it for the cornerstone for the wall you build for yourselves. dont matter to me i be there next year to beat you on your own course...... one thing i do want to reiterate is that no matter who says what this sport is for the players not anyone else and if you cant do for the players maybe oughta rethink what your doing it for.......what is not important to you might be the world for another try and see from all eyes not just yours....

Robert,  I understand what you are saying but I think you are mistaken in your observation and should re-read the posts in sequence.  Those that asked politely got a polite response.   If I was to go to another club's web-page and ask them if they "ever heard of this invention called the internet" I might as well expect to get an equally rude response wouldn't you agree?  

Like i said, I played at least 3 or 4 other Florida tourneys last year that took just as long if not longer to post unofficial results, in fact I can think of 2 of those that never posted the unofficial results at all until the PDGA made the results official so it's not just an Orlando thing.  I'll play those other tourneys again too becuase I had fun.  At the end of the day, I know how I did at the tourney and what part of my game needed adjustment.  I don't need the internet to show me.

Comment by robert william bogrette on February 29, 2012 at 4:38pm

Matt, I agree in full the points you are making concerning the three fold duties as a TD  personally  I have not taken on that responsibility but am aware of what a daunting task it could be. I dont have any issue how bob runs his thing if i did i would contact him directly to do so. (i admit a little peeved about used plastic for my ctp but not so much that i feel negative torwards him or the tourney) the point i am tryimg to get across is this no one should be put down or made fun of because they ask a question alot of people are asking. just because they havent posted it here doesnt mean they dont wanna know. anyone involved in disc golf i believe should be a emmisary and promoter of the sport not a smart ass when questioned be it one three or five years in a row. it is obvious that other tourneys post scores and ratings in a timely efficient manner and you guys dont. why and how i really dont care anymore it is obvious that what is important to others is not really a concern of the powers that be. and that asking or questioning about only results in ridicule and contempt by your fellow club members. the only logical thing i can see is to possibly lend a hand with your IT experience and maybe help the process along a bit which should put the whole issue of ratings and scores to bed. and as far as people playing tourneys just to see the ratings is a bit of a stretch i dont think that is the case here at all ratings are a by product of a tourney which people use for their own personal reasons and would like to use and reveiw in a timely fashion they may have become used to from other tourneys that are posted quicker. as to the negativity running rampant in orlando i have no suggestions.

Enough of the hoopla!!!!! I want to see how bad I sucked!!!!! Put those damn scores in!!!!! 

Comment by Duncan on February 29, 2012 at 2:57pm

When are those damn scores going to be posted on the PDGA???

Comment by Matt Schenk on February 29, 2012 at 2:01pm

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.
