How fast does Am Worlds usually fill up? Is there a chance I may not get a spot even though I have an invite? I expect more people actually qualify with the minimum points than can fit in the tourney. But also, most people that get the minimum points probably don't play. Right? How has this played out in the past?

spaceguy87 - That's why I'm a bit anxious. It filled up last year months before the deadline. Although 2012 was the first year it did fill up. This year the player caps are even lower. 705 last year vs. 504 this year.

Congratulations! You have earned an invitation to the 2013 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships to be held in Emporia, Kansas on July 6-13, 2013.
A welcome letter from the 2013 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf Worlds team and other important documents may be found at the 2013 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships Invitation Package page on the PDGA website. These documents include:
Invitation Welcome Letter
Registration Schedule
DRAFT Course Schedule
Overview Map of the 2013 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships
in Emporia, KS
Sample of the online Registration Form
Please note that space is limited. If you plan on registering and joining us in Emporia, it is particularly important that you read and understand the Registration Schedule as it details when the three tiers of registration will open and who may register at those times.
When registering, players MUST:
Be eligible for the current registration tier
Be a 2013 Current PDGA Member in good standing
Be a PDGA Certified Official
Meet all age, gender, and invitation criteria for the chosen division
Make a full and valid payment
It is the player's responsibility to make sure they meet each and all of these requirements when they submit their registration. A registration that fails to meet any one of these requirements will be considered invalid and be discarded.

Again, please note that any registrations received that are invalid will be DISCARDED- you will NOT be placed in a queue waiting for you to meet a requirement - you will need to re-register once you have met the requirement. It is 100% your responsibility to register correctly and when eligible to do so.

Again, congratulations on your invitation, I hope to see you in Emporia in July!

So I guess my questions of:

Quote:
I'm also looking for specific information in the email that has not possibly been posted on the PDGA website, such as how do you register? Does it have to be paper? USPS or fax? Is there a link we can utilize? Does registration open up at midnight 3/29, 9am, or whenever they get around to it which actually may be Monday, April 1st.
are not really answered.

If I try to register the day of though, there's no way its going to fill up on me, right? did the invite say if there was online registration? Their registration schedule doesn't even say. The way the registration form looks, it looks like I register by mail...

I highly doubt this will fill, if it does it won't be in one day. Not many people want to go to kansas, especially west coast people. Everyone I know who went last year said they won't be going this year. We are all waiting for next year. So I wouldn't worry too much about getting in.

In the three worlds I have played there is no day of reg.
If this payout structure is like this next year I might just wait for 2015.

The document they posted is the fax in form. I suspect they will still have online registration.
