Random questions about the Christmas Classic -

* Note this is not HATE or trying to start fights... so let's not even go down that road ..... *

What happened? I've only been playing for 3 years and the First Christmas classic I went to was huge..

There was Tourney stamped discs as well as a ton of people that played. This year it felt.. empty? Was it just a fluke? Or just weather kept people away? what happened to the Sky Bucks system? Instead of getting some cheap 5.99-7.99 Avair Drivers for payout? Just so weird to see the park getting so nice ((( I know its prepping for the SNDC ))) but to see the tourney just kinda be " blah "

Just wondering and again this is not hate mail just wondering what happened? I still had fun on my card and of course the people I hung out with. :) Look forward to hearing back and I just hope we can have an adult answer and not flame :)

Weather and the SEC championship certainly kept alot of the regular attendees from coming. I know a lot of people that didn't end up going for those reasons. The weather man has said 40-60% chance of rain all week and then it doesn't rain at all. Go figure..

As for the other things mentioned. It was the first event in a transition to new TDs running the events at Blue Angel. I think they did a great job personally. I haven't seen tourney stamped discs in the year and a half I've attended these. Also, I felt as though things ran very smoothly. I think that in future events they may consider custom stamping some discs and making this event bigger and better. I think the payouts were fine in terms of quantity. They stuck with 100% payout which is very good these days. No they weren't the best discs, but that's just part of it. Most events are starting to get away from letting you choose your own stuff these days it seems. Also, if y'all would've played off for that last cash spot then I feel like you would've felt better about the payout lol.

Why was a change made you may ask? Running these events on their own allows them to raise more money for the disc golf park. Really is as simple as that. Also, I'm sure they want a few trial runs before the SNDC comes along. Note: I'm not affiliated with the group that runs these events. Just my opinion being from the area and seeing the changes at BAP. Great job KC. Will be back in the spring for sure.

I doubt the s.e.c. game had anything to do with attendance.*(auburn fans) I dnt know many.The problem was the forecast.jim.o. has spoiled you all with his turny stamped disc and u pick your prizes.K.C ..I.m SURE did the best with what was given to him .SO.... my question??did rivers win? And Who.s running the SNDC.

@ Ryan - Sounds about right. Oh an the playoff about third lol! That was funny and I wish we would of but one guy did leave so I was torn about how the split would work between the 2 playing off an the one guy not there.

@Brain B - Jim O has spoiled us? Really? Maybe I just thought this tourney was a bigger deal then what it was.. But this was one of the tourneys I looked forward to every year. Tourney stamp discs are my " memories " I hang on my wall every tourney I go to. Maybe i'm just weird that way... But spoiled?

@ K.C. It was ran VERY smooth.. lack of people there though was not your fault that's for sure. There was a mix up on if Advanced played the Gold tee on 8. I havn't played the palms in years as I'm used to playing Oaks / Pines for tourneys in Advanced / Open. Was a change for sure lol (( not a palms fan as it's more of a gimmick shots in my eyes ))

My only beef with the layout would be I would of liked to see us play the longer pins and play on the pines :) But that's just personal preference.

And I did miss the Skybucks pays outs because getting Blizzard plastic again is eh more of a personal thing I guess. Maybe I am to " spoiled " lol.

I just hope next year it gets the numbers it use to have. Be one of the tourneys that got me REALLY hooked into traveling out of town for a tourney. Again that is probably a personal thing as it was one of my first out of town tourneys I played in when I first started playing so maybe I see it differently then some that may take it as " just another tourney "

if I may add this; typically the Christmas classic is the least attended tourneys that blue angel holds; the 95 that showed is above average for this tourney; the most we ever had I think was 115. and the reason is because of the time of year/ football/ and weather. ryan ; you hit it pretty much on the head. I think k.c. and all involved did a great job, and speaking with jim he also agreed. so k.c. smoothie you guys were awesome; and my last 2 cents worth; change is always tuff; but I love the direction the park is heading.

p.s. b-hole I can tell you that you didn't win.

Cool then it must just be me then as far as the " coolness " factor of the tourney. Because I remember way more people then this an it being a bigger deal. It must just be the image I have for myself as it being my first out of town tourney a few years ago if that makes sense.

First, I would like to say thank you to all of the 99 players for coming out in the frigid weather. Second I would like to thank all of the friends that helped from start to finish: Mr. Jim Orum thank you for your guidance, NO team (Big Brown, Kernan and Shark), Smoothie, Pat Barnes, Ken K, Mike S, Bernie S, Brian S and Josh Brigan thank you all for stepping in when needed, and of course the entire Blue Angel Park staff thank you for everything from maintenance to providing the food and facility.

I also thank you for your valuable input. This was my first time as TD, and I know there were a few mistakes made. These will be corrected next time. As far as the prizes go, I did the best I could with what I had,unfortunately I did not have time to secure enough sponsorship to do all that I would have liked to have done. My intentions definitely are to bring back the stamped discs, T-shirts, and other prizes. Now that I know what to expect, you can bank on better tournaments in the future. Thanks.
