Bob is the best. When I was coordinator I stuck around for 2 years longer than i wanted to because I didn't feel the people who wanted the job at that point would be good for it. I was quite happy when he stepped up and he has surpassed my wildest expectations. He may be the most selfless person I know. Add WV and NC to the list of states involved.

PA has a rotating State Championship. Not exactly sure how it is setup.

There's a map here. It shows one in VA, but I'm told there isn't one.

Minnesota has had an annual State Championship for over 30 years. At some point in the 80s, the Minnesota Frisbee Association - MFA (the oldest state org) created a circular wooden award divided into three pie wedge plaques. These wedges are traveling trophies awarded to the Open winner of the MN Majestic, State Championship and the MN Summer Tour Champ (or maybe the Fall Championship winner.) Only a few players in the past 40 years have won or at least held all three wedges at one time during a 12-month period.

Chris "Critter" Meyer has been running the State Championship for the MFA as a single day, 2-round PDGA event in October for several years now. Although the MFA owns the Tournament name, it seems like the MFA Board has been satisfied with Critter running it until he wants to pass it on.

Is the State Championship run like any other A/B Tier? Is there a berth or qualification system?

Nothing special. It was a regular B-tier this year. For several years, it was run in early August with the winner becoming the MN qualifier for the USDGC when that was a thing.

15 or 20 years ago, when tournaments weren't nearly as common, South Carolina had two state championships, plus a points series.

There was a South Carolina Disc Golf Championship, and a South Carolina Flying Disc Championship (distance, MTA, & disc golf). Both were routine events, nothing special, no qualifiers. The points series was a bigger deal.

How do various states handle tournament scheduling? Both sanctioned and non sanctioned.

Do State Coordinator duties vary from state to state?

For those that have some kind of State Championship, how is this handled. Are there berths assigned, given or won? Is it open sign up?
In Louisiana, there are no holds barred for tournament scheduling, as in there is no central coordinating authority or person.

State coordinator duties in Louisiana are the same as any other state.

Anyone can sign up for the Louisiana State Championships, there are no berths assigned, given, or won.
