I would do what Jerry said. Perhaps it will not be a problem. But I imagine there are hundreds of players who have seen the flyer at Knob who may know nothing about the PFDS or the messageboards.
Lori and I might show up, and we are not registered. We will just borrow someone elses disc and play for fun.
No one is right or wrong. But instead of turning people away, why not make it so they can play. And Jerry's idea was the correct way to do it. The way we have done it before. Extra packages are not a huge deal. Some of these old packs sell for decent money on ebay.
But as for this year, I had my reasons for not wanting to sign up early.
But YES there are many people who do not read the messageboard or get emails from the club. It just seems rude to tell people that they cannot play, when the fliers at the course don't say anything about not being able to play if you do not pre-reg.
Ya'll have fun.
