    Running a Big Tournament - Here's Why You Should NOT Sanction

    It is clear that the PDGA does not take its members very seriously or they would have long-ago addressed the issues with their absolutely horrible website. They have spent boatloads of money on their International Disc Golf Center - a place many of us might never get to visit - and seem to have shunned their website - effectively making it a place that many of us might never BE ABLE to visit.

    Until the PDGA can figure out how to provide a working website, I encourage all TDs everywhere to use different means for sign-ups, insurance, etc. I know that I will be running a fairly large tournament in October and have decided not to use the PDGA for this very reason. The $300-500 they would have gotten from my work will now be going back to the players in the form of payout and schwag.

    Maybe next year it will be sanctioned... if they decide to finally do something about their website. I will not be holding my breath as we have been forced to deal with this site for far too long.

    yes. That term escaped me when I was posting that. Squatter is much more appropriate.

    Is that a polite term for "squatter"?

    I'm guessing he just let the domain expire and it was bought by a domain wholesaler.

    And I love you back, woman! In bunches!

    I am really encouraged that you are joining the BOD and hope that these things will be resolved. It's just been such a long time that we have had to deal with this website that it is beyond frustrating.

    No... I imagine you wouldn't. That said, I will continue to do so - and even stop encouraging people to JOIN the PDGA - until the face of the PDGA is fixed.

    Thanks.
    We will have to agree to disagree but I still love ya Sam

    They know the issues and they are getting them worked out so please be patient.

    Sam- I know you're frustrated but I don't agree with telling people they shouldn't sanction their tournaments.

    Sam's point taken

    Sam has a point, the problem is there is no competition. Sure we hire members to run our organization but still the same old problems that we face year in and year out plague us. The fact that our organization website is not stable day to day is a serious issue.

    If another organization was to come along and offer insurance and historical tracking with a website that was bullet proof then you had better believe the PDGA would take notice. I am just saying....
    I truly understand and agree that an organization of this size and revenue should have a reliable website.
    I also feel that we as members should voice our opinions on issues and take actions when these issues are not (in OUR opinions) handled correctly. It's obvious to me that a lot of folks are getting tired of the reasons and excuses why there isn't a top of the line website.
