It seems funny that at first there was complaining about people NOT signing up for AM3, But then there is complaining about WHO ended up winning??
It brings up the issue of WHERE a non-member should be allowed to play.
NEXT year that problem will go away, with a new "membership" plan that Cris Belliger proposed to the PDGA at the last summit meeting.
ALL players will become "members" by paying the "temp fee".
They will be given a number AND have ratings tracked but this info WILL NOT be posted unless the player is an "Active" member (pays yearly dues)
ALL this info will be avail. to the TD so that Non-members can be tracked better AND placed in the divisions that they are allowed to play in.
This is a good trend as MOST orgs have a Membership list AND an "Active" membership list. By giving EVERYBODY a number it will increase the rosters of the PDGA membership, which in turn looks better when going for corperate sponsorships.
