If I wanted to play in an awesome tourney that is on the same day a series event and is closer to home, I would do that. It is my decision and it is the decision of every golfer in and around our state what tourney or series they want to play. If this is a problem I fail to see how it is a negative. Yes the scheduling could have been better but something is better than nothing. I am greatful for the people that put in the time to help move our series forward. Thank you all for looking to the future. I am sure that what has been learned from this year will be applied to next.
Spoken like a true DG'r.
I guess when logistics are the most important factor of scheduling events on the same weekend the TD's actually are deciding on who's playing and who's not.
Lets face it DG's are lazy and will always chose closer/easier!
DG'rs will play 500 extra holes no sweat but want to park right up front
Better than nothing is a good one!
Chris/ Series TD's don't take this personally because you are helping; Chris by running the JR Clinic (a great idea whos time is long overdue) and the Series TD's for your individual efforts
But that attitude sucks. I personally don't like wasting my time and a half assed effort is not pereferable to no effort at all.
"If you don't have time to do it right the first time, When will you have time to do it over?"
You ask why I say half assed I was helping with the 2010 series and was banned for showing oposition to the status quoe. Effort is better than none mentality! The idea of a minimalist series has led to the back room deals. This lack of cohesion or consideration of the community as a whole is our reward.
If you ask me all of the WA series events are capable of supporting themselves with out the series drain on their quality.
