I am waiting on further clairification but here is the "jist" of it.
When I get specific answers I will post them.
What has happened is that Membership has been split into 2 seperate catagories.
Active (Dues paying) & non-Active (non-Dies paying)
Players who pay the "Temp Fee" will be considered "non-Active" members, get "some" benefits(one of my ?'s) BUT will not have Points OR Ratings tracked.
What this does is require ALL non-members to fill out the form that USED to be voluntary, so that the PDGA can send you your stuff.
The #1 thing is that it will increase the overall size of the PDGA Membership, which is vital to attracting sponsors, etc.
MOST organizations include "non-active" members in the total number when calculating totals.
I just wish that they WOULD track the ratings, even if ONLY the TD's had access to the info. It would help with divisional placements, ie "Anti-Sandbagging"
