It seems with the "qualifiers" getting first crack at ORS events, the field would only consist of the "elite" group that is starting to form.
Stand away from the "tee box " for a bit and imagine how many potential state champ golfers are out there that either don't know or care about the ORS. (again nothing personal).
I think it should be wide open to ANY DISC GOLFER in the state.
IMO it would get boring to compete against the same ol same ol's again and again and again.
One idea might be to have it a one day event (ams one day, pros the next).
This way you could get more golfers to attend.
Whatever the "NAME" is...............the "State Championships" will be seperate from the Oregon Series. WHY should Series play be mandatory to win a State Championship, that would NOT be fair to those in the far regions that are not able to travel as much.
I have NO DESIRE to "steal" Jerry's event, as he has been running his version of the State Championships for a while now. (Even though in past yrs it was scheduled when the TOP players were out of state
It would be NICE, if he were to agree to allow it to happen as the "Oregon State Disc Golf Championships".
He could STILL do the Merch. for the AMS.....That would not be an issue...
I would prefer it to be PDGA Sanctioned, but then again, thats what I do.....
