[QUOTE=Golden Tuna;3517928]I'm collecting data for an upcoming A-Tier and would like the format to be as player-oriented as possible so we can plan within the preferences of our target audience. If you do not play sanctioned events, feel free to provide your reason(s) why.

Specifically:

1. Would you prefer to play 3 rounds (Fri, Sat, Sun) or 4 (Fri, Sat 1, Sat 2, Sun)
-Neither, 3 rounds, 2 Saturday, 1 Sunday

2. Would you prefer to play 1 course, 2 courses, or a new course each round?
I love variety. 2-3 courses is great

3. How far are you willing to travel for an event?
Depends on the payout, courses and history of the event. I've traveled as far as Copenhagen, Denmark from Wisconsin.

4. What would entice you to put an event (outside your home town) on your calendar?
TD reaches out to me specifically with event details and an invitation, offers a place to stay with a trusted club local

5. What (specific) types of items do you like to see in player's packs? I'd actually prefer no players pack and more funds into the payout. If players pack are a must,
Reusable grocery bags, umbrellas, stools, Kwik Stiks. We do not need more minis, dry fits, tshirts or any of that stuff. Once you've played 10 events, you're all set on Tshirts and such.

6. Based on the events you've attended, what makes them memorable (good or bad)?
GOOD
-Large Payouts bring the Pros to town
-Estimated Payouts posted in advance
-Course map available in advance
-Lunch on site or dinner afterwards at a players party
-Course signs are up in advance, baskets in proper position, schedule posted online in advance
-Quick players meetings straight to the point (Eat, Sleep, Disc is the best at abbreviated player's meetings)
-Quick turnaround of the awards ceremony
-TD/Club invites Pros to host a clinic at weekly league/doubles

BAD
-No posted course map
-Tee Signs are not installed, unable to navigate tournament layout
-No water provided during summer events, no water on site, no notice given regarding
-TD hid a touring pros name on the sign up list so the locals wouldn't drop out, pro shows up surprise the morning of, this is very deceptive
-TD inserts pros name on his sign up list to entice others to sign up when the pro has absolutely no intention of playing the event, again, very deceptive
-Event advertises large sums of added cash, only to tell you during the final round the cash was spent on unforeseen expenses and it is now only the PDGA Minimum added cash
-TD pays you via check, the check bounces

Thanks in advance for your input!
1. 3 rounds definitely (2 Sat, 1 Sun). Otherwise, 4 rounds.
2. 2 courses, one open and one technical/wooded.
3. I was willing to travel to PEI from Miami, FL before Dorian came. So, over 2,000km.
4. Field size, proximity to nature/big cities/sights.
5. Towels, birdie bags.
6. Good events: pleasant people, fair course setups. Bad events: player pack dramas/shortages/errors, running out of food when offering lunch, lack of restrooms.

By the way, DQ that guy who keeps yelling out "that won't be enforced in my group" every time a rule or OB is mentioned at the players meeting.

Unless the TD is using some sort of RNG to create the cards, first round player pairings seems to be a nasty job.

When I used to set boards, it was generally done by whoever checked in first.

That said, known douchebags were kept off of cards of decent people (as best as possible).

No, I think he should be DQed for merely announcing his intention to avoid playing by the rules. (At the TD's discretion, not by a hard and fast rule.)

After all, if he is DQed, that's just another ruling he could ignore. So it won't bother him. He's already decided he's not really playing the game anyway.
