No... and in the end, it was sort of resolved. The prize is a custom metal mini engraved with whatever you like. The TD called the guy to see what he wanted on the his mini and by that time, the TD was aware of the issue and asked if he had a keychain... so 2nd person on the sheet is going to get one... but that may have been someone else. We'll never know...

To me, if you're having something like that on holes everyone (no matter what discs they're throwing) is going to play, that's just inviting this sort of situation to happen. Its also a distraction to the task at hand. Keep that sort of thing as a separate exhibition. Its better advertising for the sponsor that way anyways.

After all, the TD is your friend (you both play disc golf, that's all it takes) and you did help with the tournament (players have as much impact as TDs).

Contact the TD, tell him what you liked and disliked, and offer to help make it better next time. Maybe you could go out and set up OB flags, for example.

At the least, you'll understand why he made the choices he did. I'll bet the reason was not just to make the experience worse.
