I would definitely like to see more age-protected events like this.
Kind of a regional response, but Ken Harbaugh's No Kids Allowed event (near Dayton, OH) is going into its third year, and moving up to a B-tier due to increasing participation.

And of course, Bill Griffith is inaugurating a 50+ Class Reunion this summer in Kent, OH.

Just Spreading the Word!

Sorry, been to Iowa....it is not a state....it is a condition!
See, I am ornery. Still I think, "if they build (offer) it they will come" applies here.

By the way, " Sisyphus", is a great handle. I contemplated, "Rosinante" as mine (Don Quoite's horse). Either is good for dealing with the PDGA.

The PDGA doesn't run the tourneys, so no sense in contacting them. The best thing that you can do is to contact the TD of any tourney that you want to play and ask them for your desired division. My brother, Rob Lee, has been doing just that lately. There are some TDs that won't budge, while other TDs are receptive to the idea of adding older divisions. Keep sending the emails well in advance of the tourney and you may get better success. If you have friends that are having the same problems, have them send similar emails. It couldn't hurt. I'll be contacting a TD for the End of the Trail tourney which is later this summer. The tourney has never had a Sr. GM division and I'm hoping he adds one. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Didn't read the post. I would not suggest handicap for PRO events or even upper (B Tier or higher) AM events. But why not try it for some local small events.

Need other old farts to write the TD for this tournament (Mt Vernon, TX in June) requesting at least Legend offered.

If you ask a TD "If at least 4 legends eligible players show up will you open a division for us" and they say "No" I think that is crazy.

If less then 4 show up I don't think there should be a division and would not fault the TD. I don't think you need anyone else to reach out. Just get the TDs word a division will open then try to find 3 other old farts to attend.

I think you'd have better luck if the older players who were asking have already signed up, even if they have to sign up for younger divisions. That's the only way to prove there will actually be enough.

FYI - you only need 3 players to form a division.

J.A Tournament Director may, by giving adequate public notice, restrict the divisions offered. Absent such notice, the Tournament Director shall offer for competition any division which has four or more players that are eligible and wishing to compete. Tournament Directors may offer divisions with less than four players at their discretion.
