Re: HFDS Club elections - 2010 April meeting!
The "gatekeepers" of TSDGC are MOST interested in holding a high quality tournament of unequalled parallel anywhere else in the state. While some might think the most important aspect to the Texas States might be the quality of courses, I think that there are many other aspects just as important, if not, more: the ambience of playing in an event where you are pretty much certain to run into everyone else playing in it...or staffing it. I think it's always been known that we don't have the calibre of courses that we'd all like to see, we make up for it in every other aspect of running a tournament
Larry makes good point here, and Scott, no offense but your comments imply that Houston lack of new MAJOR courses is somehow our fault. Yes, we have some new courses, but very few venues anywhere in the state have three courses together. As you play more events you will come to appreciate how vital all the "other stuff" is to a good event.
I think some of you new guys just played your first States at QV, and just don't get it.
