What tournament is this for?

I also see absolutely zero problem with it. Running a tournament is all about herding cats.

Play is slated to begin at a certain time. Host can take provisional entries...but they are pool players and many from afar.

Hotel? Add 150$ to the cost...

What's there to object to?

I agree there must be some lines drawn, and these restrict the customer base.

You don't really think the customer is always right, do you?

Hopefully it's just a hard-line stance they're taking before the tournament, and then once it starts they give a couple minute grace period.

I thought you were objecting to "role call," as opposed to the correct "roll call."

The customer is ALWAYS:

The one that has the money. Everyone else are the folks that want the money.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Pool tourneys have a vicious cycle: they always start late, so everyone expects them to start late, so everyone comes late, so pool tournaments always start late. I am in favor of efforts to break that cycle!

I don't have a problem with this policy as long as the entrants knew about it BEFORE they paid their entry fees.

On time is important for a lot of reasons....early and late each have their own shortcomings.

Wtf? Who is the customer here?
Customer?

I thought they were players? Competitors?

Do we call tennis tournament players customers? Football players? Olympic competitors?

I think "customer" is a strange way of looking at it...but maybe I am way off.
