No, they're both by 'invitation' (i.e. points).. it's just that, due to the number of events/points required, the invitation lists for both events are much, much larger than the number of spots...

While I can appreciate the gamification aspects of (typically video-game) progression systems, I think it's also important to remember why they were created: to give players the feeling that they're...

Hi Puckstopper,

Somewhat related to this, I dislike it when courses that are part of disc golf 'complexes' are rated up simply by reason of being next to other courses. I would much rather each course were rated on...
