With that said, can more tourneys have a rec division so I can play in a division that suits my rating?
I am sorry, since the PDGA decided to go with foolish names for the different divisions instead of just using ratings based divisions, no 'player' who is confident in playing a 'real' tourney wants to sign up for a division called 'Recreational'. Once they've made the decision to compete they don't want to be told by their division name that they don't take it seriously.
Besides, you should play up WAAAAY above the division that your rating qualifies you to play because SOOO many sub 900 rated players win the Advanced AM division every time. Or at least you'd THINK so based on the amount of those players that sign up for that division...
I am 100% behind splitting the AM field into 3 divisions based on skill, but they really shot themselves in the foot with how they implemented it. Where's that TreeLove signature when you need it...
