I was just curious if the Southern Nationals Doubles Championship dates could change? With worlds being reasonably close, it looks like a lot of SN players are going to try and attend. I may be wrong, but I think it may hurt the SNDC attendance by 30-40%

You forgot the asterisk!!! And it has nothing to do with pdga vs SN. It would just be nice to be able to play in both. I doubt I'm the only one in SN land that feels that way. Besides, it was a question as to if it were a possibility, not asking for it to be changed.
"Play one or the other....the weekend that it is on is the weekend that is set aside for it through SN. Why don't you ask the PDGA to change their event because it is close to the SNDC?
GZZZZZZZZZ the world doesn't not revolve around the PDGA!"

Well Sunshine believe it or not MANY of us will be at worlds that week. Which will certainly affect SNDC attendance. & whether you accept it or not the Disc Golf "world" does predominately revolve around the PDGA.
It isn't like it would be that difficult to reschedule the SNDC this far in advance. Which doesn't take & hasn't had anywhere near the amount of effort & planning that the World's has ALREADY made. Where as planning an event like worlds that will host 1000+ players on who knows how many courses with hundreds of volunteers & many major sponsors is an impossibility at this point.
Many of the players affected by this conflict of schedule are from the SN. I am just one of them who would like to be able to play both.
If changed hope the players dont mind getting discs with july21-22nd on em, like i told john the designs are made and sent to innova & fundraiser discs arrive monday. As long as pushed back and not up i MAY can still td, just lemme knw if any changes are to be made.

I wont be changing the date...i cant speak for the BOD though. Already raised apprx $2700 for this event and still got 5 months left. :-) :-) :-)
Don't worry Robby the board won't be asking for it to be moved. It is unfortunate that both tournaments are the same week however with the tournament being less than 4 months away it's unrealistic to move it logistically. The fact is a large majority of SN players are unaffected by worlds being the same week, I will be routing for all those that do go. Represent!! I'm sure the players that go to either event will have fun!!
