WHOOOO HOOOO!

For the first time in GSSS history NO ONE signs up in the first hour (not even Mashburn or Hugh Torbit)- another record to add to GSSS history book, which will go on sale in 2013. :mrgreen:

Keith,
Sorry for signing up late... :lol: I am signed up now. I am so accustomed to registration going live at midnight Friday night the earlier time surprised me when I got on this website just now. Come on discgolfers sign up for this tournament. Maybe Keith will use some of the alternate pins and tee that were so popular at Meeks Madness!

Thanks Bobby!

There will be no changes to the GSSS course at Meeks from the past 4 years -- As much as I like the ideas (I'm the one who gave them to Mashburn) - I will leave the last year at Meeks for the GSSS the same as the first - Old School Meeks - and will let Mashburn have the course set as he wishes for HIS Events - thereby giving them a well deserved distinction and uniqueness for the distinct and unique Madness event he runs.

The only thing I MIGHT (stressing the word MIGHT) change up is to use the top of the hill for 4's pads to avoid the gridlock with 3 since I'm using the original long #3 pad, but that will be a FRIDAY afternoon when I get to the course decision -so if changed it will be announced at the players meeting.

Signup soon so you don't miss out!

The course at Meeks withstood the onslaught of the Central Park Breakfast Club this past weekend. The course record is still intact and a good time was had by all in attendance. The course is looking pretty good and would be excellent if they are able to mow prior to the GSSS event -- if not, forget the rollers and skip shots. Watch out for the gopher on the hill near #4 long tee pad -- Glen "Big Easy" Bergeron had a close encounter.

What are the important times for this event? Player meeting? Start time? Round 2, etc? I could not find that info listed anywhere on the thread. Hoping I can make this event even though I have never played Meeks.

Thank YOU for reminding me I hadn't put it up yet - usually I do it a couple of weeks before the Event - had planned to do it this past weekend and totally spaced on it when we went to Charlotte to practice Lorelei's Worlds courses.

See you at Meeks in 12 days!

Postby keith johnson » Sun Jun 17, 2012 10:49 pm

More spots added in the last 24 hours than the last week of sales. (7)

So since no one seems to care for signing up anymore - and with only Lake Russell to go, maybe I'll just turn it on at random times at midnight to see if anyone is still paying attention to the GSSS. :mrgreen:

By the way - there are only 45 spots available for Wills Park here: http://www.pdgasignup.com/Qstore/Qstore ... 1339674100

7 more people called and E-mailed in the LAST 10 hours.................. 14 players added in 36 hours AFTER the Event closed :shock:
(This WILL NOT happen for Wills Park just so you know in advance :shock: )

UPDATED AND FINAL players list here: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/77760

6 states represented including a engaged couple from Oregon!

I WILL NOT take anymore players as all the cards are printed and the board is set, so please don't call me with any sob stories. :mrgreen: - Also a reminder that there are NO day of signups.

These 68 players will get the chance to play the LAST GSSS Event at Meeks Park - and will get get the chance to personally thank Matthew Mashburn for his work in getting the course in and keeping the course up with his minions of helpers. :mrgreen:

See everyone in 4 days!

Several dropouts and replacements later and we are ready for the morning.

Course has signs up, teepads raked, branches trimmed where needed, and the grass was mowed by the county so the place is looking better than it has since it opened.

Just for all the looky loos information - I do NOT update the players list after the Event closes and I print the cards for the board - so the number of players you see listed means NOTHING in correlation to the actual players in the Event, as I'm changing the spreadsheet daily with dropouts, changes and other stuff - which does not get posted to the PDGA website.
When I have open spots, I always post here as I have for 5 years, so if I don't post here, it means there are NO open spots at that time - so calling me or messaging me saying "hey there are only 68 people online, so let me in" is going to get you nothing.

Going forward for the last 2 Events - if you aren't in when it closes and you suddenly decide you want to play after it has been on sale for 7 weeks - don't be surprised when I don't care to hear why you waited and just "all of a sudden you went to signup and saw it was closed so please let me in" - because you will hear the sound of sorry, no spots are available, but thanks for caring enough to check in and see how I was feeling. :mrgreen:

Keith -- outstanding job once again. Thanks to you, Dawn, Lorelei, Matthew, Wes, Brett, all of the sponsors and everyone else who helped make this one of the best tournament experiences I've had. Special shoutout to my Rec division cardmates -- Marcus, Chuck, Bill, Charles, Gabe, and Zane -- two rounds with guys were great to play with, with no drama or kvetching, and who kept things moving along so well we were the first group in first round and the second group in second round. First tournament in a couple of years where I played fairly consistenly across both rounds, and I think having two great groups helped make that happen.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again at Wills.

Well, that's just a great attitude, boss.

So, for all of you that can't commit 7 weeks in advance because your circumstances won't allow it, Keith doesn't care to hear it.

And all of you that have to wait until work obligations develop to know if you'll have the time available, Keith doesn't care to hear it.

Oh yeah, all of you that have health issues that may be unresolved well enough in advance to sign up, yeah that's right; Keith doesn't care to hear it.

Another thing, if any of you would like to attend, but don't know for sure that you'll be able to, so as to not take a spot from someone else that is pretty sure nothing will prevent them from attending, would rather be on a wait-list, Keith doesn't care to hear it.

In fact, If you're absolutely certain that you'll be in good health, still have a decent job, your car won't break down, you won't be in jail or heaven forbid, your hemorrhoids won't flare up that week, sign up early and secure that spot. Otherwise, Keith doesn't care to hear it.

So, there was room for 6 more people that really wanted to play after all. My best wishes go out to those no-shows since obviously, something traumatic prevented them from attending.

Keith,
Thanks for another great tournament at Meeks on Saturday. Many of us appreciate all that you and your family do for disc golf. The GSSS will be missed next year. Maybe one of the negative nellies will step up and try to do a 10th of what you do for disc golf and realize that it isn't as easy as you make it look. Looking forward to Wills in August!

Yep - Dammes tore up his knee just so he could drop out 12 hours before the Event. Blake Zimmerman & Steve Adams didn't call (he signed up for all 6 by the way), 2 of the 4 ladies dropped day of according to their significant others when they checked in.

You know me too well Woody.
The Events close ONE WEEK before - so there is plenty of time to sign up with last minute plans - other than that - too bad for you or anyone else who wants to wait until day of to see if the weather allows them to want to play - not at any of my Events for ther last 17 years - including long before this state was involved in my Disc Golf life - so get over your whining attitude, and if you don't like the Events, don't signup for them - oh wait - you already don't signup for them - nevermind.

Thanks Hugh,

It is players like you and several other regulars who understand that makes it worthwhile to keep putting up with the Woody's, Bootsie's, Kellner's and other whining babies of Disc Golf.

Nobody forces anyone to play the Events I run, so I try to put on the best show possible and throw out way more cash and prizes than "B"-Tier standards, even though I'm running C-Tier Events to help keep the players happy.

I appreciate your sponsorship and support over the years - and don't count on anyone of these whiners to EVER try and run Events, because they wouldn't know the first thing to do to make the players happy and to put on a good show while putting up with all the crap that goes along with ther behind the scenes stuff as well as the day of stuff.

Posted by Woody.... "My best wishes go out to those no-shows since obviously, something traumatic prevented them from attending."

Thanks for the kind thoughts Woody.

I thought I had torn my ACL on my knee, I was in some major pain, but really wanted to play Meeks. On Friday morning when I got up and could not even bend my knee, I decided there was no way I could make it even one hole so I had to withdraw.

Since you are so concerned I will let you know I should be back to normal in about 2 weeks. After having two syringes worth of fluid drained from my left knee and a cortisone shot I feel alot better... So thanks Woody!! I am glad you care.

Sorry Keith that I did not give you more notice, but I really wanted to play.


Later,

Mike D

Wow Keith, you just dont quit do you? Now you are calling me a whining baby? I hope everyone sees the content of your character which is on full display with all of these things you say and hope they all understand the level of insanity you are operating at. You insinuate that I am saying things behind your back directly about you and then you go on the internet like a coward and say things about me. You took something that was no big deal and now you are making it very personal. I tried to deal with you like an adult and and to settle any differnces like gentlemen and you refused and acted like a child. I said an off hand comment and used profanity in front of your daughter unknowingly that wasnt directed at anyone in particular which I apologized for and yet you continue. Im telling you right now that I have had enough of your bullshit and am not going to tolerate it anymore. If you have anything left to say to / about me you say to my face.

I hope everyone reading this understands that this is the person that Keith Johnson is. If you do anything he doesnt like he is going to go on the internet and start saying things like this about you instead confronting you like an adult and dealing with any problem like an adult. All of you should give real consideration to this when chosing what tournaments you are going to pay to play in.

Keith, thanks so much for running killer events with BIG time payouts! Props to all GSSS tournaments!!! Hugh had it right. I hope someone can step up and run a 10th of the action that you do.

@Woody -Maybe we should chip in and get you a calender or day planner so you can handle several weeks of advanced planning :roll:

I at least thought you could tell time Patrick, but I guess I was wrong about that too - My post here was an hour & 1/2 before my FB post and your FB responses so I was just going on what you had actually said on SAT when making my post here - all the FB stuff was hours after this post was made - so you saying I just don't quit is non-sensensical.

I do hope people see the Events and how they are consistently run from year to year where players know what to expect and how the payouts will be BEFORE they ever show up at MY Events -That is something that is lacking in alot of Events here and around the country where you just enter and "hope for the best" in terms of how it is run and how the payouts will be.

At any Event I run - you know the times will be adhered to, the courses will be groomed and ready, check-in will go smooth, there will be no day of signups, added cash will be at each Event, ALL AMS will get players packages and at some Events ALL players get players packages, you NEVER have to buy in for CTP's, Ace fund is $1 per round played, awards ceremonies will be as short as possible (usually around 45 minutes but always under an hour) etc, etc, etc.

I sincerely hope that anyone who wants to play my Events plays them, and to anyone who worries that they have to like me to enjoy playing a Disc Golf Event that I run - I guess you'll just miss out on a good Disc Golf Event because of some silly notion that you have to like me to have a good time.

Whatever Keith. The fact that this happened before actually makes it worse. It is still telling as to the kind of person you are that you would come on here and start bad mouthing me BEFORE you even talk to me about an issue. Everyone should also know that if they pay you money to play in your event and do anything you dislike you are apt to attack them on the internet as opposed to trying to deal with the issue at hand.

Yes - If you pay money to play in my Events and then curse around my daughter, while I'm trying to keep things moving (when you should have been happy I was doing so to help get people home faster) I'm gonna say something - Everyone be forewarned. :mrgreen:

I've given McCoy crap, Dollar crap, and several other people crap publically, and while we all still disagree on issues we can all still talk and be freinds because, even if we don't LIKE the others positions - there is respect from ME towards those guys because I consider them freinds - and whether they return the respect or like me doesn't bother me one way or the other because we can all still be civil with each other.

You keep changing your tune with every post and just amke it more and more about how you didn't admit to it, to saying yes you said it but who cares, to lets say Keith is this, that, and the other - all becuase I asked you guys to stop throwing until we were done with the ace fund throw off so I could get the awards ceremony started and move things along -you could have just as easily said OK, or you could have moved to hole 5 and thrown from there - but no - you had to say that I already had your money so you could do what the F you wanted.... What does me already having your money mean anyways? I already had everyones money and was giving it ALL back plus 500 dollars more than everyones money to over half the field (including you - which you declined) -so what EXACTLY was your point in that statement?

I can understand your statement if I said - stop F'ing throwing and get the F off the tee pad - but since I asked you all to "PLEASE stop throwing so we could finish the CTP contest and Ace fund throwoff" - there was no reason for your response in that manner at all - or to then deny it at first and say I was just making things up.

As I said before, I'm fine with your stance on my Events and I'm fine with your feelings towards me, because somehow I'll try to find a way to keep running Events even though it displeases you that I do.

I appreciate the sentiment Kade, but it's more about financial planning than anything else. Some people can lay out 6 months of entry fees in advance and not feel the pinch, others can't.

@ everything else - Boy, I'm so good at stirring up stuff even when it really doesn't matter to me personally. It's always so much fun to present aspects of an argument whether you believe in it or not and watch the mudslinging that ensues. And you guys are so easy!!

Shouldn't have waited so long to check back in to admire the results of my seed. You guys never disappoint! :lol:
