The PDGA has finalized their A-tier and major event schedule for 2013. Unfortunately, our 1st 2 weekend choices for our event were not available and the 3rd weekend that was put down was accepted, but is in July and there is little chance that any of the touring pros will attend the event if held in July. Ryan Hand and myself with the help of Eric Trippany as the state coordinator have decided instead to run a B-Tier event the weekend of September 14-15th, 2013. This weekend will be after the Disc Ithaca Open and the Lewiston Luau on Labor Day weekend and the following weekend (Sept 7-8th) where there are A-Tiers in Toronto Island and in PA at the Eric Yetter tourny so hopefully, even though we wil be a B-tier, we will be able to attract the touring pros for another great weekend of disc golf and fun in Rochester. We are still gonna pay out like we were an A-tier, but we have to pay the PDGA less for a B-tier, so we should be able to add even more cash for the players instead of it going to the PDGA. We are disappointed that we are not hosting as A-tier, but this won't slow us down in our future planning for our 40th Annual RFDO in 2014. Please contact me with any further questions regarding next year's schedule.
