    Its called Intermediate, Recreational & Novice........Once a player has a rating they can play where they fit by rating...AGE isnt an issue.

    The PDGA will give you NO options for a MM2 division.

      This lights of the debate of BS PDGA rules about divisions, how can you offer MA1, MA2, MA3,MA4 and give out points for those divisions but not offer MA1, MA2, MA3, MA4 at Worlds.

      I say just ask the PDGA for a waiver and they will probably approve it.

        ALL AMs register as an AMATUER. No one reg's as MA1, MA2, MA3 OR MA4 in the PDGA. The rating you earn paces you in the division that fits you best.
        Only the TOP am divisons are at Worlds........MA1, MM1, FW1, etc

        As far as a waiver.........I HIGHLY doubt it.
        Why would they allow a division that doesnt exist?

        I suppose the ONLY way around it is to offer the division, BUT NOT collect fees OR report the scores to the PDGA. The issue is HOW do you determine WHO gets to play in MM2? There is NO criteria OR ratings cut-off to determine who plays where.

        Worlds should be for the BEST players in the TOP divisions, NOT for every division in existance.

              Bump... We now have permission for the "a" group site and part of "b". I am limited to the first 50 people to RSVP or Register get free group camping.

              Remember group camping is only effective when we have the permit dates, which are September 19th and 20th. Any camping before of after that is your own responsibility.

              So another great reason to come out to Whistlers for this tourney... free group camping.

                        ***Important Information:***
                        Please read and follow these guidlines!

                        There is NO GROUP CAMPING on Friday. That means if you arrive at Whistlers early you need to PAY for camping in the Individual sites.
                        People arriving on Saturday can setup in the designated group camping area "A" And there will be a roped off section of "B" for overflow.

                        All Parking for DAY OF Registrants for either day, need to park in the lower Day Use area. The upper Parking lot is reserved for Car pools of 3 or more, or Group Campers. We will have someone on hand to help direct parking and camping.

                        There will be a 10pm Quiet Time in place. This is when we will Officially end our Players Party. At that time you need to follow the DOUGLAS COUNTY PARKS rules on being quiet after 10pm.

                        There is a Leash Law in effect at Whistlers Bend Please maintain your dogs on a leash. Failure to do so is your responsibility.

                        The Battle at the Bend is not the only event at Whistlers Bend this weekend. There will be an organized party of sorts located in the main portion of Group Camp "B" Most of these people are gonna be just like us, having a good time, and Camping.
                        We need to maintain respect for this event, and not camp in their area. They will have beverages and music. I have spoken with the organizer and have worked out for us to use the group A, and roped off part of B if we need it.
                        The Organizer has expressed that its OK for disc golfers to come hang out, and have fun as well.

                        So I think this will be a weekend to remember. This is our chance to show the County that we can work within guidelines, and keep the park clean!

                            I'm a little biased but this was a great event and I want to congratulate Nathan and Derek for running their first PDGA event and really classing up the joint down there in Southern Oregon. They brought a bunch of sponsorship and ran a really smooth ship.

                            One Day PDGA tournaments in the fall are AWESOME!

                            Thanks again guys!
