    I want to thank timusbr for running this in the past and assisting me with some initial info and past records. Just letting you all know I am gladly taking over the #BeatTheForum voluntary contest for 2020. If there is a specific tournament you would like please post your request on this thread as it is a first come first serve.

    There is no set amount you must volunteer but instead volunteer what you are comfortable with. I do ask if at all possible to spread the voluntary challenges out over various price points.

    Below is the schedule starting with the first full field event.

    I am keeping the WGC events if anyone wants to volunteer for those events but not sure we can really do anything with the match play event.

    I will keep the Olympic golf event on the schedule just in case.

    If there are suggestions or questions please post them here also.

    I will keep everyone’s records updated and will post on each Monday a reminder in that week’s tournament forum who’s the volunteer for the week and the results of the previous week as soon as I get them.

    I wish you all and your families a great Holiday season along with a successful 2020 PGA DFS season and many thanks to everyone who cares to join this forum weekly event…..Kevin

    Zurich is that team event and DK has never offered contests that week so you will likely have to go down the list some more.

  • SleDwreckerZ

    Yeah, was wondering about that.

    …How about Charles Schwab? Is that available?

    I thought this member had the Charles Schwab

  • Herf

    I never confirmed it and didn’t even know that I missed any others until just now with you mentioning it. So….

    @mitchsnyderdfw do you still want Charles Schwab???

    You are confirmed. Many thanks.

    Sounds great! Thanks!

    Now that we have a revised schedule which still may be subject to change I think we need to revise the BTF contests as to the preferences on who wants to keep tournaments that have moved to other dates or who wants to keep their dates regardless of which tournament landed there and create a new list of volunteers

    For example, I for one would like to keep the Memorial Tournament even though it moved from June 4-7 to July 16-19 except for the fact that kbarnhill7523 has those dates reserved which was for The Open which is now cancelled

    I think people selected their choice based on Tournament/Location and not based on the Date so I would just chop off the old schedule and add the new schedule and copy over the people who selected a tourney that is still being played – if people selected The Masters, The Open, RBC Canadian, etc.. they will either have to pick a new event or miss the party this season. If you had the Schwab or Memorial and it is still being played (albeit on a diff date) then it’s still yours.

    The positive is that the 2020-21 season starts immediately after the Tour Championship with no offseason break and we can fire up the bigger and better 2020-21Beat The Forum with 6 majors in one season !

  • titanhawks

    Also we need to be aware that some who previousy commited may not be able to do so now under current conditions and those players whose tourneys were cancelled and want to can pick another when available weeks are updated

  • timusbr

    Its a tough call to a volunteer(kps3205) who wants the BTF contest to succeed. You need the most important person each week…. the “volunteer”. Some volunteers are going to get slighted. we now have less contests than volunteers.

    So no matter what happens someone COULD get slighted.
    (LOL Im sorry Kbarnhill but it seems you get screwed again. Never intentional but its damn hard to get you a contest this would be 2 years in a row)

    I think overwhelmingly, people chose tournament/venue. I hope if at all possible those people keep those events.
    when the first week actually starts to play. a new thread is created for the new reality. kps3205s has done a great job and been as fair as possible. I support any decisions he will be forced to make as to who and what event.

    where I ignored the first 10 or so events during football season and started Jan 1 for the TOC, BIF is spot on that we can use these events. (I think NFL season is a question mark).

  • kps3205s

    I hope everyone is doing great and being safe out there. I do apologize for the delay.

    My belief is that we should keep everyone tied to the tournaments they volunteered for and I have revised the schedule above to show that. There are 3 events, the last 3 of the season, that do not have volunteers and it will be a first come first serve when posted on this page if anyone would like to volunteer. If I made any mistakes let me know.

    I ask that the current volunteers under the new schedule please post on here whether or not you will still be volunteering for your event. In the case that a volunteer can’t volunteer, I will announce post there is an open event and again first come first serve.

    I am trying to keep it as fair as possible and if there are any questions, comments or concerns feel free to post them here so that they can be discussed.

    I appreciate everyone’s patience and wish all of you and your families great fortunes ahead when we get back to a somewhat normal way of life.

  • titanhawks

    Thanks and I’ll keep the Memorial July 16-19 and kbarnhill can grab any of the last three if he wants them

  • Hyak420

    I’m still in for the PGA championship if played. Hope ya’ll are doing well and staying safe. Cheers!

  • kps3205s

    titanhawks and Hyak420 many thanks and stay safe.
