    BSF...How fast will it fill?

    Is it too early to start taking bets on how fast the Beaver State Fling will fill this year? Can we take down the whole darn interweb? Will it even fill?

    What do you think?

    1: 1-2 hours
    2: 2-3 hours
    3: 3-5 hours
    4: 8-12 hours
    5: 24 hours
    6: What's the Beaver State Fling?

    I don't think that an Oregon Series exists at this point.

    Cant really do it this year because of short notice but what about next year giving auto bids to anyone who takes top 10 in their Oregon Series Division, since this is a ORS event. Also auto qualify to any pro's that are 995 or above. Im not at that level i just think it sucks if anyone who could win this tourney is left out for an AM that signs up at pro with no shot to even cash. A 940 player should not take a 995 players spot in the PRO FIELD.

    Thats my opinion, i really like the only registerd PDGA pros get to play pro

    Bigger event thoughts . . . Timber and Dabney are both pretty durn close, especially Timber ? ? ? It wouldn't be the first time that a LARGE event was played at multiple courses . . .

    Just a thought . . .

    I really like the idea or thought of raffling and/or auctioning off some set-aside spots once registration has filled. . . AWESOME IDEA!!! mmmmmm . . . money

    I also really like the idea of setting aside division minimums (ie: Women's divisions) I mean, come one, they will fill . . . a few less dudes, a few more mother hukkers! WOOT!! Great suggestion, Cindy

    Qualifiers . . . sure, top 3-5 (??) from each division from last year deserve a shoe-in, but they should have the ability to claim such before official registration opens. After that, too bad. Sold out is Sold out. Qualifiers from outta state?? What if Pro players could pre-qualify for one of few limited, set-aside spots, based on current year's (season's) PDGA event points earned ? ? ?

    Many great and not-so-great-ideas listed, all of which needed to develop the best approach to pondering the subject, at hand . . .

    my two cents, maybe my non cents . . . dunno

    Either way, we at DiscGolfOregon are here to help above and beyond the 500 minis already discussed. Just let us know what we can do . . .

    wow! I didn't pay the BSF any attention last year. I only started playing leagues n tourneys last april and june. Now that im into competing. I'd like to enter the biggest A tier in the state. I had no idea that I'd have an easier time signing up for the Memorial in AZ than the one half an hour away. Open it up for as many people as you can!!!!!!!!!! TWO WEEKENDS so I can play and still volunteer/watch the pros!

    Here's one more, go to 5 BSF work parties and earn pre registration.

    While a noble suggestion . . . the work party concept doesn't really seem fair given that would eliminate your personal chances not once, but twice Dan.

    Auctioning off the last few spots in each division could be a huge fundraiser. I like Tim's idea of staggering the online registration-- it'd be hard to argue against it being more fair. I plan on being at the ready, with mouse in hand... may the power of FIOS be with me.

    If there was a way to increase the number of women in each division I think that would be awesome. In the FM1 division there were only 5. It would be awesome if it could get to at least 8 this year. I know there are that many FM1s at least just in the Pacific NW alone. In FW1 there were 12, and for sure I think that division has the potential to go to 16 or 20. Can you imagine 4 or 5 full cards of FW1 women that would be freakin awesome. In the Hope Open we held spots for women until at certain date to try to increase the number of women participating. We ended up with 24, which for a C tier in fall was pretty darn good. That is over 38% women as compared to the 2009 BSF with about 13% am women. Anyway I am just putting some thoughts out there. I will hopefully be able to get in, and hopefully enough other women will get in too.

    A lottery sytem with current PDGA members only would be another way to do it. Those who don't make it in this year would have double the chance next year by the TD's providing an additional lottery credit for those who could not get in. I know that this is a "Local" but it is also a National event where demand has exceeded capacity. The most likely option may be going with Am and Pro on different weekends in the future.
