Also, I don't see opening to non-PDGA members an issue. Out of 84 players, we only had 9 non members / not current. Plus, we are a C-Tier introducing the sport to new players and providing a...

I don't know the conditions toward Beaumont. We lost power for about 6 hours last night. Still don't have water and probably won't for the awhile.

To be determined. Still a sh*tshow right now. I am lucky to have power, but don't have water. Other side of the neighborhood is out of power and water. At one point over a million people in Houston...

Years ago I had a friend who was not current with the PDGA. He wanted to play a tournament, but didn't want to pay the extra $10. So when he registered, he used another friends PDGA# and name.

The margin is what matters. If you add $5 to the registration fee, you will need to add it right back to the player pack / payout ($4.25 for C Tier and $5 for B Tier). The PDGA has requirements for...

Little to no effect on a "Player Pack". Whether it is for a player pack, or for payout, the TD will need to come up with merchandise since cash is not allowed to be given to AMs.

I agree with the concept of letting TD's make more to encourage more TD's to step up. However, I don't think it should be the PDGA paying the TD's. No need for the PDGA to increase/make a fee just to...

When the Pro side can self fund a stand alone organization (from sponsors, advertising dollars, ticket sales, etc...), I think we will see a split of some sort. But for now, the PDGA relies too much...
