This was announced and explained at the club meeting and on the forum. We need time to order shirts and it creates extra problems for our volunteers. You will not find many tournies without a deadline.

I had something to do with my son that night and couldn't come. I thought in past you just didn't get a shirt the right size. It doesn't affect me this year as I took the whole weekeend off. But there are many times I won't know if I can make it to a function until the week of the event. I know the lionshare of people will register far in advance, so I just am trying to understand how an additional 10 people or less registering late will cause problems.

Not trying to be difficult, and if you can link to the post where it was explained I will read why myself.

Where Y'ak?
01-18-2011, 07:27 PM
My quick two cents:
I've been involved in running rodeos for decades both large and small.
I support deadlines. Coming from the legal world and the writers world, I deal with absolute deadlines everyday.
Rodeos are weather dependant. With no cutoff, an unfavorable forecast close to the event can severely affect registration.
I understand some folks can't be sure until the last minute. Register before the deadline and you will almost certainly be able to "transfer" your entry if you can't make it.
The deadline helps planning. Rodeo organizers work hard and are volunteers- this makes things easier on them.
The rodeo and the deadline must be clearly publicized.
I support a registration cutoff.

Scott, At the meeting we explained that in an effort to be able give timly updates on the leader board and have the members be better informed as what to enter their fish, we needed to have time for our Vol.to have time to build a spread sheet to put on the computer. We had one built and tested until last minuite changes derailed the program. We had it tested and it worked fine until we had a bunch of late entries. Some as late as 9pm on Friday night. In an effort to make the event run smooth we need to have a cut off time. This is not to say that if your a late entry that you can't still come and enjoy the event, you just will not be able to win prizes. I think this is a resonable request as everyone will have 3 months notice. This is a growing pain, and IMO a good problem to have. We will see how it works and then adjust if needed.

I thought we weren't transferring registrations in the club anymore. If you can't make it you lose your entry now.

I'll have to look to see if it was better explained in a post following the Dec meeting. I can't honestly recall that it was. Perhaps it should have been and one of the TDs or other officers can chime in. In essence the decision to make a cut off date was to help the tourney run more smoothly. You may recall the problem we had with the display of the weigh in at FNT. It was determined that it was the late addition of entrants that caused the program to not operate as intended. Also caused a lot of work for some of the guys who could not have been able to enjoy themselves as they should have.

Bill can clarify, but we did talk about, and I thought agreed, that last minute folks were welcome to fish, but would not receive a shirt, capt's bag, or be eligible to win any prizes.

I hope this helped answer some of the questions.

lol obviously TDE types faster than I do. Sorry for the duplicate explanations.

I understood the spreadsheet issue last year. But we couldn't build in 25-30 entries in the spread sheet named "late entrant #1" and so on. If someone registers late this will be there designated name on the spreadsheet. Others won't know who they are but they will be able to see their weights. You wouldn't have to make any changes on tested spread sheet.

I agree that this a good problem to have but o think there are easy solutions if some thought is put into it.

Late entries can still pay the $20 instead of $40 and get a shirt and eat. Shirt sizes will be what we have left from our order so you might get the correct size. We always order some extras.

Race, no worries from me on your question. It was valid and I did not detect any whining or any problem with it. Unfortunately the written word sometimes fails to convey the emotion intended by the writer. Unless of course you write something like, Gee Tommy thank you for correcting me and making me look ike a twit! LOL Perhaps sarcasm could be detected there. And in all seriousness I am glad TDE corrected me of course.

You have to love the members of clubs that rebel to any type of change. A simple thing like registration cutoff dates get so much discussion going. If your schedule and commitments in your life are such that you can't pre=register prior to the event, then don't try to make life difficult for those who voluteer their time for our events. Respect the volunteers and club officers that try to organize, run, and pull off a class event like PP.
From what I see it is a limited number of people that have the problem with pre-registration for the tournaments. Do these people have a problem with April 15, Christmas, Easter, mardi Gras-these dates are set and in order to attend you have to plan.
On the other hand if your life does not allow you to plan in advance for things, then you must gamble and see what happens if you think there is a chance of making the event.
I am aware of the problem, I spent 40 years in the oilfield both domestic and international and your life is not your own, but if you want to have a hobby you have to chance the registration, that's life!

Managed service hands, no 7&7. Life was good when you had the time to enjoy. Intrernational was a piece of cake with all the benefits. You are lucky to have a good schedule. I guess it's due to the change in the industry's mindset.

I still feel like I am away from home a lot but when I am home I have time to honestly unwind. Of course there are those instances where I am asked to stay a week longer at work here and there but pretty much I get off when I should. It helps to have four weeks off for those 'big' projects on mama's honey do list or if we are going to cross the Mason Dixon line to visit her family. It's like a vacation really. The best thing is the most obvious, every other month there's four weeks of fishing and I don't have to wait until the weekend!

Figured not but had to throw it out there; I didn't know where PP fell in between "official" events and "outcast" events.

Razor, I'd love to see how it works too - my son and I finished the prototype and brought it to the mine the weekend I met you before MC4 for prefishing and a maiden voyage. Wouldn't you believe it was the first time I fished and there was NO WIND ALL DAY LONG????? Sure was a nice day though. Couldn't bring myself to pay $350 for the sail kit, so I built one much cheaper with significantly more surface area than the one Hobie sells. Will try it this weekend when I fish the 210 launch, will take video/pics and if I make it to OutCast(should) I'll definitely have it there. I took my son sailing when he was 3 and he still talks about it, so this will be exciting for both of us.
