Now tournament directors are no longer allowed to use Northwest Sign-Up or Reg Disc as their tournament website with the PDGA.
At first I thought this was just a simple misunderstanding with the new tour manager, Andrew Sweeton, as I tried getting www.regdisc.com
to be added as the tourney website for the Rizzle at the River on June 4 & 5. But Andrew checked with Brian Graham, the PDGA executive director, and according to him it would be fine if it is a club or tournament website, but they aren't going to list any external registration website.
Northwest Sign-Up is a tournament website for many events. The Fort Steilacoom Disc Golf Club site is under construction and Northwest Sign-Up provides them with a web page filled their tourney's information. White River doesn't have a club website and Northwest Sign-Up is trying to provide them with a web page that displays their tourney information. The Fort Steilacoom Open isn't a club event and doesn't have it's own personal website - so even though I am running the FSO as the TD and I own the website, Northwest Sign-Up, should I not be allowed to use Northwest Sign-Up as my tourney website. As of now the FSO does use Northwest Sign-Up as it's tourney website, but I guess that will be removed soon.
What do you guys think of this new policy? I know people like using the PDGA's online reg, but should the PDGA be dictating what a tournament uses as their tourney website (within reason - websites that relate to disc golf)?
