      Mind you, I meant noob and amateur... If they have an event for us new players, then I'd love to check things out a bit more with regards to events here. I'll check the board today for the info the "Steily" Open.

      Thanks :-)

        I'd recommend checking out the weekly doubles...those are one of the best ways to get to know the other players in the area, and are generally the most noob friendly kind of events. The Steilli Open on the other hand, is an A-tier event--you have to be a current PDGA member to play in an A-tier, and players are expected to know all the rules and everything for that...so NOT too noob friendly. Might not be a bad idea to go and check out the play during the weekend though, to see how the pros can do it.

          They are offering an Intermediate Am division, and as fun as it is to play, it might be more beneficial to watch. If you decide not to play, there is always room to volunteer to spot, or help add score cards.

            I recommend you attend any weekly dubs event in your area. Most are happy to allow players of any skill range to play. Some of the better players may gripe about getting a noob, but its what happens in random draw dubs events. You will meet a lot of great people, and possibly learn alot.

                You won't come across this kind of behavior at Lakewood, Seatac, or Terrace dubs. We get 'em in all shapes and sizes of skill, so no matter what you'll fit right in. I can't speak for any other weeklies, though.

                Before you play in an actual tourney, though, I'd recommend procuring a rulebook and reading it cover to cover (that'll take 5 minutes). You'll find some surprising stuff in there. The competition manual isn't a bad read either. They are available in PDF on the PDGA website.
