As it was, some groups still took almost 6 hours to play the shorter layout. I think we might have been persuaded to do more or all of the longs for some divisions at Bird's Ruins if everyone just played an 18-hole layout.

I think the host team walked a nice line with their choices for the final layout used, being reasonably challenging and playable for the wide range of ages and skills at an Am Worlds.
All to often it seems that players assume that decisions on structure and events are based on random factors or have no planning at all. I wish there was a better way to get them to understand the process and everything that goes into making decisions on events, structure etc. Thanks Chuck.

Hey folks, doing a little research, anyone able to answer these questions...

How many minutes did it take for MM1 to fill? I was first on the wait list/#73 by 12:06am, guessing it took under 5 minutes.

Was it the fastest division to fill?

How long was the MM1 wait list? How many made it off the wait list?

Thanks!

From my end I noted that MM1 and MG1 filled in just under 9 minutes. It took MS1 a bit over 11. I will be just fine if someone else says different. Just the way I am.

Remember - Registration opened earlier for the Non-US players. Europe, Canada, etc players got to register prior to the overload that we experienced in the US.

Friday, April 15 – Registration opens for two weeks to International (Non-North American) Invitees ONLY for the reserved International spots (approx. 8-10%) in the division(s) for which they were invited.

Friday, April 29 – Registration opens for one week to Canadian Invitees ONLY for reserved Canadian spots (approx. 1-2%) and any leftover International spots in the division(s) for which they were invited.

Friday, May 6 – Registration opens for three weeks to all invitees only for the division(s) for which they were invited. If a division fills then a waitlist is started only for invitees of the division in the order they are received.


Here's the Invite Criteria that allowed him in.

International - all current International Amateur members (country other than USA or Canada) who completed a PDGA Tournament (not league) in either an Amateur or Professional divison during the 2015 tour year.

No points criteria, Registered as an Am and there was no checking.

As far as my personal opinion - You got screwed!

I was late to the party; that thread is already deleted. What was the fuss about?
