    Tim do you also realize the last weekend in July is the Burner?

    It seems the 2010 schedule is geared more around it organizers wanting to play in Ore then supporting it's own series. How did I come to this conclusion you ask, Well the 7 week hole in the schedule from the LCO the first weekend in June till Fakewood the 24-25 of July. Then two weeks after Fakewood is White River then two weeks later JWO then three weeks later the finals.

    Nothing for 7 weeks then 3 events in the next 7 weeks. It's either piss poor planning or too many cooks trying to protect only their interests.

    I thought I would never say this but even the worst Santoon series seems better organized then the 2010 WA series. I guess it all comes down to cohesive leadership or in this case the lack of it.

      Aquafest will still be held July 24th. We get a lot of waived fees and extra sponsorship by having it during the town festival weekend, so we won't be moving the date. It is too bad Lakewood Open scheduled it the same weekend. There are a lot of players that like to play both including myself. It would only help the DG community to offer more events they can play during the year. Oh well...

      Hopefully next year we can work something out. There are a lot of weekends in the summer and it sucks to double book tourneys on the same weekend.

        Forgive my ignorance, but what does " reserving the course " actually mean ?
        Both courses he mentioned are in public parks. You cant close the park, anyone has the right to be there, so what does this " fee " buy ?
        And who does it go to Tim, is it just for insurance ?

          Edge has more knowledge on this, but you can indeed reserve the park for events at Lakewood--similar to reserving a picnic shelter. It gets reserved each year for the tournament which takes an unfortunate chunk out of the purse. All the money, AFAIK, goes to King County Parks. Insurance is covered by the PDGA.

          I agree 100%.

            But what is the last weekend in July?

            Is it Sat-Sun = July 24-25, (Lakewood, Aquafest) or
            is it Sat-Sun = July 31-Aug1 (Worlds, Highbridge)?

            And how long will Adam & Sarah keep us waiting to find out?

                        I heard this was canceled due to lack of interest.

                            This is correct. We're just waiting to get the online registration up and running before making an official announcement.
