One has to live in a cave not to have heard about the Ace Race or that the deadline was approaching. Jim Wilson evidently was awakened from his haze and did contact Dave and I to let us know that he was interested in registering. Then, I held his spot and ordered a player pack for him assuming that his payment is coming. I also did this for EVERY OTHER PERSON WHO CONTACTED ME OR DAVE TO LET US KNOW THAT THEY WERE INTERESTED prior to the deadline, and even 3 people after the deadline. At some point the hemming and hawing must stop, and people have to make a decision on whether they wish to participate or not.
I'm actually quite offended by your implication that I am turning away interested individuals, or somehow pushing away new disc golfers from participation in the sport. I am one of the most approachable disc golfers to new players, and make a point of it to talk to and disc golf with every new player at Schenley League (the league and course that brings in the most new players).
