Gripes about the PDGA

Postby geoloseth » Mon May 05, 2008 2:27 pm

Since Fritz said it's O.K. so BRING IT ON!!!

I'll start.

What's with requiring your SSN to register for a tournament. I don't even use it to get car insurance quotes what makes them think I'm going to hand it over to someone to write it down and keep it in their records. I don't know about other people, but ratings and points aren't so important that I would try to have a better player play under my name.

not a chance in hell i'd give my SSN to register for a tournament.


That's what I read, but I don't think it should apply for AMs. How many amateurs actually bag more than $600 in payout for a given year. Even most of the Advanced players don't get that much because they stick to tourney's around they're area. Even very few Pro's don't make that much.

They already have my SSN from my PDGA membership so I think that should be enough. It almost seems like they're pawning off some of the work that they have to do on the players.

Or just don't give it at all...they aren't going to kick you out of the tournament because you didn't give your SSN. Not that big of a deal.

I think the 2 meter rule stinks. It got me three times in the tournament on Saturday. :(

Even though the PDGA got rid of the rule they still say the tourney directors can enforce it. And most do. Give us a break.

my understanding was, with legal substances, that as soon as your card was turned in for the round, you could slam away. 2 minute warning would be the logical start time for no-beer time.


correct.
