Doesn't that leave odd holes in dozens of threads, with just responses, like one end of a phone conversation?

I'm not sure Brees & Brady fit in any sentence with the term "most players". Most NFL players are put out to pasture by age 40, too.

We may yet come across the exceptional disc golfer who can...

You have 10 times the population. So interpolate ND's peak to 15,000 per day.

This. It's like saying stop signs and traffic lights don't work, because there are still auto deaths.

It's a big undertaking, to run a tournament. A modest grant from the PDGA isn't going to tip the scales for anyone, or at least, not enough people to make a dent in the supply.

It's so little that it won't encourage a TD to run an event. But it adds up to a noticeable chunk out of the PDGA budget.

At C-tiers, which are most common, TDs can already keep 15% of the entry...

How many total players in all tournaments, and what's that come to?

And why would $50-$100 encourage a TD to run an event if he wasn't already going to?

When you need a few hours in a place where you can't hear sirens, come back and visit. Now that you're vaccinated, I may even shake your hand (if I remember how).

#2 was a big deal, about 20 years ago. If you wanted a tournament to happen at your local course so you could play in it, you had to make it happen yourself.

Why does anyone ever throw a party in their home? All the expense, all the preparation, all the worry, all the cleanup?

Answer: I have no idea. But thankfully some people do.

In a way, it's worse to make a little money, because at some point you may sit down and realize that you earned $2.15 per hour. It's almost better to lose money, and call your labor "charity".

All well and good, but it would help if we had an intelligent aid program to rescue those who are affected -- including businesses. That side of the equation shouldn't be ignored, either.

What would the toll have been without the mitigation efforts?

And is their failure the result of them being wrong, or the half-hearted ways they've been implemented.

As an avid free-marketeer, letting prices reach what the market will bear has some appeal. Plus, in our case, we're raising money for a charity, so we'd raise more, which is nice.
