      Whoops...

      Advanced - MA2, FW2, MM2 $50 or $40 for Current PDGA members
      All AM Divisions - MA1, FW1, MM1, etc $40 or $30 for Current PDGA members

      MA1 is Advanced as is FW1 and MM1. MA2 and FW2 and MM2 are all Intermediate.

      Sounds like a fun event. Will discuss it with the boss.
      ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

            If there are at least 4 players I will allow ANY division. PERIOD. Im running this by the books, and trying to be fair to everyone.

            We are also hard at work obtaining sponsors, and have already received 3 sick Keen bags to give away.

            Hole Sponsorships are available, more information available on DGO.

              Entry Fees are a "bit" steep for a 1-day event......

              "BY THE BOOK" would be just over 1/2 of that, according to PDGA standards for C Tier entry fees.

              Sounds like a BLAST....... AND on my B-Day weekend.

                    How do I put this AND be politically correct? .....

                    There is NO Intermediate Masters division (MM2) in the PDGA.

                      edited. thanks for pointing that out... obviously I'm still new.

                      I knew that posting this information on this board would lead to these kind of comments, and I appreciate all the input.

                      ALSO... Notice on the bottom of the recommended fee's there is some wording. what does it say?

                      "Table shows "net" entry fees. PDGA player fees based on event tier, plus any local club or regional series fees should be added to these figures to determine overall entry fee's"

                      SO... We took the BASE entry fee and added... 2$ C-Tier fee, $2 ACE Pot, $2 Hosting Club, and $4 administrative. We are also offering all AM classes a players pack. And pro's get a couple things too.

                      As for my scheduling... I'm sorry... that was the only date that i could get a permit from the county for Whistlers. next year I will have it all scheduled out as to not interfere with any PDGA events in our area. I am just trying to do my part and expand the PDGA tournament setting to my area. See anyone there... heh even if its 12 people.

                        I just wanted to say THANK YOU for having a PDGA event closer to me. Living in Medford makes it hard to get to play in sanctioned events. Hopefully one day i will get the luxury of playing sanctioned events more than 2 or 3 times a year. Once again, Thank you very much. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. See you on the Battlefield!

                          With the growth the PDGA is seeing, there should be... The may event at camp taloali willll have intermediate masters; there is a clear need for it in Oregon if not anywhere else..

                            In a NON-sanctioned event a TD can do WHAT EVER they choose, BUT in a PDGA event there can NOT be an Intermediate Masters division.
                            That is what the ratings are for....play where your rated...
                            All we need is another addition of divisions for TD's to deal with.

                              So where do the new masters play where they dont get killed and play with their age group at the same time? The ADV amateur masters field is pretty competitive and scares away a lot of potential master players... And of course unsanctioned do whatever I want, still waiting to hear from PDGA about options...
