Hello Ottawa folk!

Dean Aelick here. I'm the ODSA's Disc Golf Chair and also the writer of the document in question, namely the Gold Series Details. Let me say that it went through 5 drafts, each time being scrutinized by the ODSA's Disc Golf Committee. When creating such a document, I tried to be proactive, and think of every worst-case scenario possible, so that we could solve the problem before it occurred. Quite a daunting task, I found out very quickly, but thought that the final edition was workable. But not everything's perfect. During the summer a few items that I did not foresee, were brought to my attention. These are things that will be considered for next year. That being said, one item in the Series Details that I wrote in, was to eliminate a Gold Pass Recipient being able to "give" a friend their Gold Pass by means of declining it, or in some other way, passing it on. This was written as "- A Gold Pass cannot be received retroactively." You'll see below, that for the purpose of having a full field, if required, after the deadline entry of October 9, we will be going down the leaderboards of each Gold Qualifying Tournament to ask the next-in-line players if they would like to attend. I will be posting this information soon. So, in response to the previous posts, here goes nothin' :

1) Mr. Fister is incorrect about the tournament being open to anyone. I'm not sure where he got that info, and October 5th? Where's that? Beats me.

2) Upon Ken contacting me this morning, I wondered where he got his info, so I put 2 and 2 together, and here I am to discuss the situation.

3) If you read the "waiting list" info, it is under the heading of "Entry Deadline Rules and Refund Policy". This was written into these rules with this in mind: Because there were a possible 105 eligible players, and if the max field of 90 was reached by 90 paid entrants, then we would need the waiting list scenario.

I'll try to check in again if there's anything further, but if there are other questions you'd like answered, please email me at deanaelick@gmail.com

Thanks,

Dean

This tournament seems to be now open to anyone who has played in any Gold series event. Also, if you have not played in a gold series event, you could prob get in if you email Deaner. The entry is expensive considering hotel and travel costs so I expect some people to drop out for financial reasons. $5000 added cash plus entry fees could make for some big pots and big wins out there. That final card on the final day will be fun to watch. I don't know what to expect for a course but I am hoping for a JCP style yellow tees layout.

Here is the quote:

Also, another heads up to everyone: After the entry deadline, if there are spots available to fill the field to a max of 90 players, we will be going down the leaderboards of all of the 7 Gold Qualifying Tournaments, and will allow those players next in line to register on a first-paid, first-in basis. The entry deadline for these players will be 11:59 pm Friday Oct.12th


Having said this, if you have won a Gold Pass, and are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as you can through an email to president@ondisc.org. A few players have done so already, thank you. This will free up spots to others wanting to attend. As a reminder, there is a list of current Gold Pass Recipients on the first page of this post.


As the entry deadline approaches, I'll be putting a list together of who's in and who's not, plus who's "next in line" from the leaderboards. If you're an interested player-in-waiting, so to speak, we'll be using the PDGA's online results from the 7 Qualifying Tournaments:

Hey Briggs
Is there a sizing guide for the shirts/jackets?

There used to be a list of players who had registered, and I guess because registration is done, that list disappeared. Anyone know of a way that I can see who is going to this?

There's updates on DGO.

Entry date extended as well as list of eligible people.

I see some Ottawa names that just became eligible. It's first paid first in.

If you're interested...

What's interesting is fields max out at 21 participants so if you got your A game for a weekend then you could fair well given the added $.
