Chris mentioned during sign-up he would need to leave early and might not finish his round. He also mentioned to the card he would need to leave early.
On the payout subject - I personally feel w/ a flex start and the fact that some cards take much longer to finish than others - it does not make sense to have people possibly waiting an additional hour or two to see if they made payout and recieve their money.
Not sure that forcing people to be present to get payout is good for Disc Golf. Also think this thread and these responses are also bad for Disc Golf.
Cabinet will address the payout subject.
