While I appreciate your passion, I think you are really kind of over the top here. Disc golf has, and will continue to grow, without the impact of Jomez or any other media company. I think we DGCR folks forget that we are the tip of highly involved disc golfers. The vast majority don't watch videos and could care less about tournament play.

To even say that Innova is holding back the sport, by putting out their own videos is hyperbolic at best and myopic at worst. Innova has does more for the game in a week than Jomez ever has. I don't recall any tournaments, I have played in, being sponsored by Jomez.

Boycott all you want....but, don't tell me what to do.

I think the Charlotte disc golf community should boycott this event and put all of their efforts into supporting the DGPT championships.
better late than never to the party

2 weeks to go! Just started course set up today. Lots of changes (as usual); based on some rumors, old holes 1 and 2 will not be played and traditional 3 will be hole one, old 4 will be 2, a new hole on the ball golf course might be 3, old 5 will have an older tee pad and will be hole 4 (only about 1,000 ft rather than the 1,100); next 6 holes will be traditional (except being one lower in number). Looks like the old 11-12 will be broken into 3 holes; everything else (13-18) looks like the old layout.

There will no longer be top red/yellow rope--replaced by short PVC pipes (still with the traditional bottom yellow string; the real OB line).

A few holes are now fully marked; most of the OB should be ready this week. Its a work in progress.
Ironically, someone did start a USDGC thread, about two weeks ago. You may not have found it, because they decided (hmmmmm) to put it under the "Tournaments" section. Silly brutus.

Check it out ... or better yet...


Maybe incorporate...

And you can't possibly know what's "more than likely" going to "crack the algorithm"

Ah, the Jomez cult, holding forth that no other video company may cover a big disc golf tournament, presumably for the rest of time. And to L with TDs and their plans and financial decisions, if they dare to not hire Jomez.

I hope that if you are passionate about the DGPT event final, please volunteer for the event. The Club can use all the help we can get.

I am guessing turbo has been leading the DGPT boycott as well.

Even better, buy a Pig, Stan McDaniel who has done more for Charlotte disc golf than Jomez or DGPT was rocking them long before Ricky.
