Where do YOU want to see a tournament take place?
« on: October 27, 2009, 05:07:35 PM »
I think it's generally agreed that the Joliet Championships should be moved earlier in the year.  That's cool and great.  However, I'd like to continue on with tourneys at individual parks.  I have to talk to Jason McKinney - I don't know if he wants to continue with the Channahon Classic or if he would like me to.  West Park usually goes well, although I'd probably try to get the pavilion next year (provided it has power!)  I don't think I'd run one that was exclusively at Trinity Links, and there's of course, Highland Park now that is well deserving of a tournament all by itself.

Just curious what the thoughts are from others on what would be neat to see!  I'm starting to pull together what courses I'd like to target for a 2010 schedule.

I like the idea of one round on Sunday like Joliet Championships.  It seems that people from out of town would be more likely to come if this were the case and also allows for Am players to watch the final 9 of the Open players.  There could even be a two or three round Saturday and then the one round sunday of maybe 27 holes or something.  Just a thought because after 2 rounds of 18+ holes and then awards you are lookin at like a 6 or 7 departure time and some irritated golfers.

Just my thoughts.

Just thoughts.

The Channahon/West Park day 1 and Highland/Trinity Links day 2 is what I originally wanted for this year's Championships, but I was overruled.  It worked out though.

I wouldn't mind a Channahon/West Park day 1, Highland Park day 2 - haven't been out there yet, so I don't know what kind of room there would be to add a bunch of temps.

I wish Jericho had a little bit more to offer - even from the longs.  Would be fun to do either single day Jericho and Oswego or something similar.

Do people prefer 2-days or just the split days?  I've heard decent amounts of people saying both.  Right now the numbers of players are dictating split days are better, and if people want to play both days they just sign up for 2 different divisions.

I'm just thinking out load.
I was thinking about something at Channahon mid August & keeping 4th week in September, whether it be Channahon Classic or Joliet Champ. It was suggested to me to play Channahon when things are more alive.
Cross Country has priority September & October in Channey.
Keep in mind Jesse & Darrin want to run two tournament in 2010.
It doesn't appear Jason McKinney will TD any tournaments, just my guess. It seems many others are willing to step up.
Many thanks to Brett for keeping things in line for our state!

Illinois State Disc Golf Championships should be back, hopefully in July and
most likely at Highland.

Mokena will allow tournaments, they just want $5 a person (minimum $500/day).  None of the area TDs have been willing to take the chance of a poor turnout and being stuck with that course use fee.

I talked to Brett tonight and it looks like Hamilton A-Tier will probably be on the same weekend as it was this year.  I don't want to step on their toes, so it would probably be better to move the classic to another month, perhaps august?  Maybe even earlier - like May?

I didn't know Jesse and Darrin wanted to run some events, cool :)  Jesse - make sure to send Brett an email and tell him you're interested in running some events so that he includes you on the list of TD's he contacts when it comes time for scheduling.  Those emails should start coming out soon!  Sounds like Highland for one, what's the consideration for the other?  The classic?

I talked with Darrin last night & they are running two tournaments & the Classic is one & State the other.
May should be fine to run something at Channahon, & I'll help getting that set up if you need it. I don't think anything is set for West Park or Lockport. I haven't heard anything on the Joliet Championship.

I think I am going to hold a two round tourney at Trinity playing one round shorts and one long now all the pro tees are in including three pads for hole two and a new pro tee for ten.  I am not sure when I am going to have it but I plan on having fundraiser tourney's to build up the payouts.  Any ideas for me im open to them

Hey Thor,
                         How about ordering 100 candy discs to sell?
            I'll help sell them, and I'm sure for the cause, other discers would too.
It's great to be alive!
