    2012 Orleans County Pro-Am Facts

    As far as the scoreboard for the Open Division goes, it should be better. The problem was that we were working with not one but two new scoring systems. The one that was used to display the scores on the monitors did not have the capabilities to display the Open Division. As a matter of fact that system did not have the Open Division built into it at all. As of this date there has been no discussion by the directors, or by any other formal group that I am aware of, as to any changes to the format. In reading some of the posts, there are some ideas presented that merit consideration and then there are others. As Vince pointed out, as of today there are two Pro-Ams that have selected their 2013 dates. I hope that over the next few months many issues can be resolved and the focus can be put on making the 2013 Pro-Am Series the best yet. One final comment. The fact the entries were down for 2012 cannot be explained away simply by saying it was the rules change. I'm sure that gas prices, job security and many other factors influnced the entries.
