Crawdaddy,

There should not be any exceptions to the RULES! No matter where they are driving from they should have to be qualified. One event is not a lot to ask! If the rule changes for these guys, then somewhere along the line more people are going to try to get in without qualifying. Then what are you going to tell them?? "Oh that only applied to those guys from Texas b/c one of them used to live in Memphis and was already qualified" No that wouldn't work!! But once again I am not a board member...

The Board made a bad ruling on this Tournament but I have already mentioned that. To give no notice that this was an Exclusive Tournament until the last minute is not right and shouldn't have been done.

Its been clear for years...well kind of clear...that the SN Pro and AM Championships were exclusive.

The SN Doubles should not be exclusive, at least not this first one since there were no clear rules until a last minute ruling which should never have been made.

got to agree with brad on this one. whatever happened to the board's phrase "it's all about fun"?

which is it, SN board? is it all about the fun or is it all about turning people away over a hastily made decision?
Re: ? FOR THE SN BOARD
July 08, 2004 11:52AM
I've sent an email to the rest of the sn board members asking their opinion in regards to this year. The gentleman from TX called me as well.

I can see both arguments. The first discussions the board had concerning the doubles did address qualifying, and it was decided at that time that only one person on the team had to have played in a sn tournament the previous season.

That probably wasn't advertised as much as it should have been because it was the first tournament and at THAT point no SN money was to be added, and people would know about it for next year...

However now that there is SN money added to the purse it would be unfair to make exceptions to the rules and as much as I like to let everybody play that compromises the sn championships if people are allowed to "sponsor" their way in.

This is not the official board response just mine as a member of the board. I'll post tomorrow what the gereral consensus is tomorrow based on the email responses.

I propose a SN sanctioned event be held on Friday, July 23rd at Bud Hill. Doubles format of some kind, entry fee $7 with $2 going to the SN doubles tournament, 100% payout of the rest of the money (cash to pros, prizes to ams). Last chance to "qualify" for the SN Doubles Championship. Maybe make it glowby for the late arriving masses.

CLAM DOWN EVERYBODY DIDNT MEAN FOR THIS TO RAISE A FUSS AND I KNOW DONALD DONT WANT TO CAUSE ANY CRAP.HE WAS JUST WANTING TO COME PLAY THE DOUBLES AND BRING SOME FRIENDS TO MAKE THE TRIP NOT SO COSTLY.I UNDERSTAND THE RULES AND DONT WANT TO CAUSE A BUNCH OF B.S. IN THE SNDC.BUT THIS BEING THE FIRST SNDC AND WITH TEXAS GETTING IN THE SN FAMILY HAVING SOME TOURNAMENTS THERE THAT ARE SN EVENTS
DONT YOU WANT THEM TO COME TO THE SN EVENTS THERE AND SOME OF THE OTHERS THAT THEY CAN MAKE.ITS ALL FOR FUN AND ITS NOT LIKE THE GUYS ARE COMING AND GOING TO TAKE ALL THE $$$$$ AND PRIZES BACK TO TEXAS WITH THEM.PLUS A LITTLE ADDED MONEY WOULD BE NICE IF YOU WERE TO GET SOME OF IT.CALM DOWN AND LETS SEE WHAT THE BOARD COMES UP WITH............CRAWDADDY

Theres an excellent thought. a one day quailifier the day before the sn championships with the best tens rounds getting in! Entry fee of $26 for ams and $36 for pros all money going to there division. They do this for alot of pga events. It sis the equvalent of the player playing in 13 or 18 events a @ 2.00 fees being charged. The players would still have to pay there entry fee into the big event. More money = better payouts and more people to expose to the events! Its a no brainer.What does everyone think. Bob

Hey....I for one will talk with my partner, Hawk....

IF the Board decides not to let the Texans play, then I move(hopefully Hawk will back me here)....that Hawk and I will team up with each of the Adv./Am guyz that want to come from TX...

Hopefully this will cure the issue....assuming, of course the Texans are cool with it.

Just offering an alternative......and that way both guys play and are qualified.


Peace and Aces to all!! CounselorGriff

2 cents let them play its not like they are going to win or anything wait maybe all the people who dont want them to play think this is going to push them back 1 spot in the final .I feel like this being that the rules just started you pay you play but next year you will be S O L .I was looking foward to winning this thing with griff as my partner but if we have to we will split up and each take a texan .


LET THEM PLAY

Re: ? FOR THE SN BOARD
July 08, 2004 04:25PM
Thanks, Hawk....

There ya go Texans....Bring it on...regardless of goings-on, you guyz WILL be playin!!


I still think the Board has plenty of room to maneuver here....don't wanna break up "Chings with Wings"aka Griff and Hawk....(remember, we wanna pick the eyes outta those Hobbits!!)...

BUT will certainly do so as a player courtesy to our TX buddies.....

Any friend of Craw's is a friend of mine...so let's ALL play!

We would first like to start off by saying thank you guys for being so cool about this situation. Honestly, we aren't trying to cause a bunch of noise, we just want to play some golf and have a good time. Donald always talks about how sweet the courses are and how much fun he has every time he goes back. Griff and Hawk, you guys rock we cant get over the fact that someone in another state who we dont even know would do such a cool thing for two Texans. We are coming regardless so if it turns out we cant play together we'll take anyone who has qualified playing in the adv/am field or play in a Friday qualifier.Let us know what we have to do. Appreciate all the help.

Anytime, anywhere....that what the SN series is all about.....PLAYIN' GOLF!!


As EVERYONE's momma has said.....every good turn deserves another....


and I for one know it, I travel often....often solo...and everywhere I've gone there are folks like Will T., the Laff. crew, the Jerky Boyz and chain gang, Bill Mc and Mac, etc., et., who are always happy to show folks the course or hook 'em up with more friends to PLAY GOLF!!

And that's the point, ain't it.....if you can't get along with disc golfers ya probably need a good beatin', etiquette (sp?) school.....OR BOTH!

The Texans are in either way it flies!! Griff

I've recieved responses from half the board waiting on the other three before I post the final decision...

TX guys, if you do have to take Hawk or Griff, flip a coin and the loser gets Griff.....Sorry Griff couldn't help myself.

I'll post something as soon as I can...

How many spots are available for the Doubles? How many have signed up?
Did the "Texans" play in any SN's in Texas?
