First TD Experience
I ran my first sanctioned event the Sunnybrook Spring Fling over this past weekend, It was a huge success. Last year the event was a one day event accommodating 80 players on a golf course setup for disc golf. Last year the event filled, so I thought I would suggest making it a two day with divisions split to allow more people. At the time our club has never run a two event like this, so we just just hoping to get 80 total let alone a brand new TD for that matter. Saturday we had 56 players followed by 71 on Sunday totaling 127 people!!!
Being a TD requires a lot, and I mean a lot of work! What is more important is the volunteers that help out behind the scenes. Without them there is NO WAY I could of run the tournament as smoothly as it did. We had to basically install and tear down an 18 hole course with fly pads both days! Being a player at heart, I wanted to make sure everyone playing had the best time they could possibly have! Driving around on golf carts sure does make that go easier, and even though a lot, and I mean a lot of people lost plastic to the lake, I never heard anyone saying they didn’t have a great time out there.
