2010 Norwalk Glow Tourney

Postby ghstinshll » Sat Aug 28, 2010 6:13 pm

Need to add up scorecards - should be tonight, or most likely tomorrow night. Given last night's drama - I'll have to personally deliver prizes to those who earned them, since noone was able to stick around for everything.

Just a quick cross-ref to the trouble we had last evening @ the glow. Norwalk teens ganged up on some of our Discers trying to have some fun AND use proper course etiquette.

Just got done w/ a meeting w/ the Park Director, and next year we're goign to have to do a few things.

This year I moved the event back a week so it would be darker sooner, and that caused this to bump into the football schedule. (never in my wildest dreams would have expected last Fri's transgressions to happen because of it).

(1) As a result, next year will have to be a week earlier, OR on a Saturday. Either way there's always a risk of random acts, but the last two years didn't have anything like this on the earlier week.

(2) No drinking will be allowed during the glow next year. This is a big bummer, but like I said the park is technically a no-drinking park. This year, w/ the violence that occurred, the police were concerned with the fact that players had been consuming, AND per the leads they received, the high school age kids had been too.

(3) Next year, early registration or AT LEAST RSVP will be encouraged, so we can anticipate how much, or how little to order for prizes.

(4) Liability waivers will be part of the signup forms as well.

I know this will scare off a lot of people, and unfortunately that's what the city has to do in order to continue the event. If it does happen this way, at least we know who we'll have, and can at least act accordingly to know how much schwag to order. Could have given out more...

as a wrap-up, in 2011 I will not be running the Norwalk glow.

In addition to the incident w/ the players getting attacked, the park director wants early registration, no alcohol, and a liability waiver signed. Because of the need for this, I can forecast there being no interest in the event, and have decided to stop running the event.

Any questions, just let me know.

cant say i blame you at all. If I had it to do all over again, I never would have built it on my own time.
