I would love to get more serious but don't play/compete Sunday so most tourneys are out for me unless they start doing Friday/ Saturday tourneys ( but that is a whole other hijacking in the making).
It is a very tempting prospect especially since my goal this season is to play cherry hill and Farragut (trying to convince the wife and kiddies that it would make for a great camping trip)
So for now, I will remain DG-clubless and hope for the best. I will have to hope I can get good enough without the support of the clubs, but may just end up asking for DG lessons for my b-day this year and more tourney playing money next year (or maybe PDGA membership for starters)
Ben, i hope this information may assist you and others who can not do 2 day tournaments. Our NIDGC is planning a series of 4 tournaments for this spring and into the summer months. All events will be single day tournaments, Saturday,with Sundays open for whatever? Preliminary date for the first 2 events are "Corbin park Nightmare Layout" April 21st. Second event is to be At Farragut on or about May? Nothing sheduled for the month of June
These will be NON pdga sanctioned tournaments. Low entry fees. Little to no OVERHEAD td planning. Unsolicited sponcership. Fun events
After our Club meeting on Feb 13th, we will get flyers out with all the info. The 3rd and 4th events will be Cherry Hill (new layout), followed by another Farragut stop in mid to late summer. Again, Ben, i hope this information may assist you and others who can not do 2 day tournaments.
Thanks for your impressions about " the lack of politicking at the tourney"
