Just posted some pics from 2010 pro worlds on the lemon lake face book page.
The advantage of Lemon Lake is that every thing is in one location. You drive in, park, and you are there for the day. No driving from course to course. Plus you are spreading out volunteer resources.
Valpo is a great course, it should be used. There's no reason there couldnt be a B tier at valpo the weekend prior. Have you seen the DVD for the event ? I do not think I could ever get bored at Lemon Lake.

Valpo is a great course but before anyone gets their hopes up, it will not be used for worlds. The great thing about LL is having everything on one site.

A lot of things were learned at the last worlds that will lead to this one being that much better. Brian is a great TD and has helped build a great facility. Giving the bid to a club with lesser experience/courses just to "spread it around" would be a mistake.

if it was there 2 yrs ago i think its a joke to be having it back there again.. why isnt lake tahoe holding this event.. with so many great courses to play and things to do outside of disc.. lets do a west coast east coast every other yr.. just sayin.. to have the worlds just 2 yrs apart at the same place is a JOKE

History never forgets: In '94-'95 World's were held in the same place. There were no bids for '95 and Houck just set it up and ran it on the same courses he had used the year before. The World kept turning, as I recall.

World's has been picking up in the last few years. It might be cool to settle on a Lemon Lake/NorCal/North Carolina/(someplace else) rotation and keep going back to these places that are putting on the big World's on a consistent rotation. You could then focus more on those three sites and it will be easier to run a quality event. The one year in the rotation that you do take bids should attract a lot of attention. You should have several quality bids to choose from instead of one or two so-so bids.

too soon. lets see some of the nation's other top caliber scenes. plus i think dg has blown up to the point that the PDGA should be able to approach desired cities/ scenes/ clubs regardless if they put in a bid or not. i understand the host must be able to support such a big tourney in all aspects- i say the PDGA should set some standards and look for sites who fit the bill, possibly even years in advance.

i like ThreePutt's view also. quality run tourneys at 3 rotating venues. set the standard. this way bidders know really well what's expected if they decide to put in.

Based on my discussions with Brian, it's possible the Gold course could be the only course that Open will play that was the same as 2010. Look for some improvements in what was already very good in 2010.

Just hearing about KS for the Ams. That makes me excited. As for the Pros, at thins point in the game just get something moving forward. It takes a long time to do this job well.
