There have already been some complaints about how registrations were handled at the GNO. Specifically, that qualifiers were not given the opporunity to pre-reg. That seems to be one of the features past series that has fallen through the cracks. So what cracks are left? What functions of the Oregon Series have been picked up and what is left to do? The BSF appears to be in good hands, but that was only a fraction of what Cris and Teresa did.
Here's a list - completely off the top of my bald head - of some things that need to be addressed. Please speak up if they already are. Also, please feel free to add to the list.
- Maintain the ORS website (side thought - who has the "keys" to this site, and will it stay that way?
- Maintain a list of qualifiers for pre-reg purposes
- Track points for end of series awards
- Purchase a ScorePoint scoreboard
- Scrip Vendor - is there one?
- Tee signs?
- Tents, tables, sound system, and other tourney central stuff?
- Water jugs
- Some way to haul all of the stuff above from tourney to tourney
What else can be added here? Is there anything on the list that somebody has already stepped up to take care of?
Lets get a positive discussion going, and see what we can accomplish.
ALL of these things will be addressed at the TD meeting at Whistler's.
The TD's AND/OR thier Reps are the "WE" in this case.
IF you really want to be involved in the process, I would suggest that YOU contact your local TD and get involved there.
NOT trying to be an ASS, but 90% of the "WE" on this message board HAVE NO CLUE how to run an event let alone a Series and only want to make demands and suggestions, which when not followed BITCH quite loudly.
to answer as many of your questions as I can.....
I believe that Rebecca is in contact with the Bellingers in an effort to maintain the current website.
The "qualifier List" was a joke...less than 1/2 the TD's last year even followed it. Something ELSE needs to be done.
Flash WAS working on a points system...."WE" will discuss this at the GNW.
Not a major issue, it will be covered.
Scoreports?? Hasnt been discussed. I have 2 that I have had for years, these could be used at events if needed.
Each local club will now be responsible for doing its own "scrip".
I think this is a good thing, NOW all the "profit" on Merch will go to the local club vs the "Series" and can be used for the event instead of disappearing into "thin air"
Tee Signs?? - This is one that has been brought up by a few TD's AND something that needs to be discussed with the "Old Series Staff"
Tents, Water Jugs, Trailer, etc.?? - Bummer isnt it??
There are none at this point....GOT CASH??
These are all things that will need to be discussed BY THE TD's at Whistlers.
THAT meeting will NOT be open to the Public. This is because I have found that OPEN meetings for this type of discussion just do not work. To many arguements tend to happen AND nothing seems to get resolved. It is best IF the individuals that actually run the events do the talking here.
