In this manner, the competitors can be done and awards ceremony wrapped up and folks on their way home by dinner time.
It also gives some flexibility if there is a weather or other unforeseen delay.

This and other events with similar timeframes are running a very thin line between completion, and total disaster. Any emergency which comes up and delays the tournament by even an hour is going to result in competitors not able to finish by dark, and the entire Sunday round thrown out. There is no Monday completion of a tournament in disc golf.

This is the way it has been done for decades.
Why are folks changing things now?

Good luck traipsing on this razor thin wire. ����
I don't have answers for you but the event organizers would have good responses for you I'm sure. They are generally friendly folks who are willing to have discussions if the timing is right. Where you personally effected by this? It sure seems so.

Dunno about razor thin, Im sure you can find folks with good reasons for the way this was run and both sides are likely right. The game is changing rapidly, nothing is the same as it was decades ago. Do you want to go back to people throwing Aero's and Eagles, and using ground baskets?

hahaha complaining about the timing. It's in Santa Cruz in the spring. You wake up at 5 or 6AM. Catch some waves at the point or the hook. Nap on the beach for a few hours after the surf is blown out. Go play disc golf in the afternoon/evening. Timing seems perfect to me.

Sorry, let me fix that for you (me).

Since 1 and 2 is a choice that you know of beforehand (could spectate or travel with a different person/group), and 3 is making money for his/her decision.



DUH -- I was talking about having plenty of daylight -- not choices...
