I don't know how much theft of flatpads would be an issue. But in measuring against baskets, I see 2 distinctions:

(1) There's not a good substitute for baskets. There is for teepads. So we may...

Thanks. Though if you'd been quicker, you could have saved me some typing.

I mentioned that it had been combined in the past, but didn't look far enough to realize it was combined in 2023.

Just a couple of guesses:

Until recently, Juniors were part of Am Worlds, so players could compete in only one division, anyway. So it's not unprecedented to have them at the same time.

I'd...

This must be some defintion of "stagnation" of which I was previously unaware.

Disc golf is booming, from the top to the bottom.

At the bottom, the number of courses, tournament players,...

I assume decks, with spaces between decking, don't really need it. But, per my prior confession, I'm no carpenter.

The security issue varies tremendously, depending on location. But I'd assume in theft-prone places, they won't be putting in portable tees.

This is a real concern, but can be mitigated somewhat by making sure the pad has a slight slope -- not enough to throw off players, but enough for water to drain.

We built a deck in the woods and...

I'm part of the "hardly matters" group, though I guess it depends on how bad the installation is. ("Hardly matters" which hole; it does matter than baskets be installed correctly).

With all due respect, having non-members participate in governing a membership organization would be a cart-leading-the-horse arrangement.

Is that for World Championships, or all tournaments?

Yes. I took it as a bit of a tongue-in-cheek phrasing of how varied we are, resulting from the unique combinations and interactions of our genes.

Alas, one size doesn't always fit all. What about courses that rarely have enough people on them for it to matter?

Arguing individual variations also seems to me, to be an argument for abolishing gender or age protected divisions, and either having a single division, or only dividing players by rating.

Even B) as 18 holes doesn't seem quite right...there may be 18 tees and 18 fairways, sort of, but only 9 baskets means only 9 greens.

But there's no better answer. It's more than 9, a little...

My personal taste would be lower entry, no players pack, no payouts to Ams (just a trophy). If the entry were $20, a 72-am field would generate $1400 in revenue, which in many cases could fund some...

Maybe not, but if we also cut down the entry fee so it didn't have to cover all that merch, it might be just as attractive -- if not to all the same people, then perhaps to others.
