Not really sure what you mean, but DGV's has partnered up with the CDGC to run the majority of the CDGC PDGA events for 2017, in efforts to provide the community with as much opportunity to qualify for Am Worlds next year as well as showcase the courses that are tentatively scheduled for Worlds.

What surrounding events are being saturated by the events that are going on in Charlotte?

In South Carolina, TDs work with the state coordinator to avoid overlapping events as much as possible---not just within the state, but with nearby areas such as Augusta and Charlotte. The thought is that this helps all events, as well as giving players the ability to play both local and out-of-town events, without having to choose between them. As much as possible.

It doesn't help when one city schedules dozens of sanctioned events, taking up a third or half of the calendar.

Which isn't to say you're wrong to do it, or shouldn't do it. But this is the downside of both overall growing pains in disc golf, and someone like yourselves doing something ambitious.

I was wondering more than just the course. I live in KS but will be in Charlotte this particular weekend. Is this a C-tier, PDGA league?

Thanks

The CDGC got all of the local events approved by the NC coordinator, DGV is just helping with running their events. We are averaging 1-2 C/B tier events per month for the calendar year, almost all of them inside Charlotte, which is a community in itself. DGV has even elected to not run local events when neighboring cities/clubs are hosting events even when given approval by state coordinator, I can list multiple events/dates. We'd also be open/receptive if a neighboring club was trying to run an event on the same day. I realize some folks might see this is a saturation but some folks see it as a great opportunity to qualify for 18 Worlds without having to leave Charlotte.

Sanctioned PDGA Singles is on 3/25. Just show up, pay $8, and get a rated rd. 1st rd is casual, 2nd rd is rated, play just one or both.

Understood. As I said, it's not wrong. But it does add to the saturation in the region.

Which is already a problem. We keep building more courses (which is good) and at every course people want to run a tournament, maybe 2 or 3 (which is good) but we're not building more weekends (which is where the squeeze is).

Hopefully the player base will grow fast enough to keep up with the event proliferation.

Perhaps running traveling leagues during weekdays would be a way to play 2-3 different courses within each 6-week league, still allow players to earn points and reduce the number of weekends tied up?

As soon as there's enough evening light (mid-Marchish) we have leagues scheduled every weekday/night. Some rotate, others are the same course each week.
