Great idea putting this over here.
I do fully expect that the other thread where this came from WILL keep rolling...
Likely in circles.
For my part, I greatly appreciated reading Jeremy and DD's process at coming to this event model. I more greatly understand the thinking when the process and timeline is presented. Great of the DD team to provide this kind of well constructed statement.
It was beneficial to me to see that this event model was part of their worlds bid, and well thought out to an end that both DD and the PDGA saw as a favorable approach. It gives me, a casual outsider, a peek at process and perhaps more so helps me understand where things may be going.
