The following was also sent as an email to registered players and wait listers…
As the event is fast approaching, I wanted to let everyone know what the plan is for this re-scheduled event.
The schedule will be as follows:
On Saturday, October 31, all amateur divisions EXCEPT MA1 will play their two rounds.
On Sunday, November 1, all pro divisions PLUS MA1 will play their two rounds.
To be clear, everyone will only play on one day of the weekend.
The expected schedule on each day will be check-in from 7am to 8:45am (am player packs to be picked up then). First round will tee off at 9am. There will be a brief lunch break to re-order groupings (no more than 30 minutes after last card), then everyone will play round 2. EVERYONE is playing a round on each course (Red Dragon and Talon). The order in which they are played will depend on division.
On each day the field will be split as evenly as possible between the two courses each round. This will accomplish two things: 1) allow for maximum social distancing and 2) improve pace of play as daylight is running short at this time of year. In fact, Sunday will be the first day after daylight saving ends, so it will have even less playable daylight than Saturday.
As of now, the plan is to NOT allow spectators and caddies. That may change if circumstances allow, but for the time being, plan for that to remain the case.
The last two things to address involve AMs (primarily)…
With the current schedule, this creates a bit of wiggle room for players who wish to change divisions in such a way that it changes the day you play (I know I have had a few such requests). For the next seven days, until 8pm on Thursday 10/8, players will be allowed to swap days by changing divisions. After that date, changing day/division will require getting on the waitlist for that day. If you are making this change, contact Josh rather than editing Disc Golf Scene yourself, to ensure you don’t accidentally withdraw yourself from the tournament.
Also, all ams, please go to this form and select a shirt size, even if you have already done so on Disc Golf Scene. You will have until Tuesday 10/6 at 8pm to get a shirt size reserved, otherwise you’ll have to take what we have on hand on tournament day (probably going to order a lot of L as a default size).
Thanks for reading this far. Can’t wait for the end of the month and DDGC20.
