There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

WMF is silent about KO-system in Odense


World 03 Feb 2009 at 16:37 | Published by: Hans | Views: 4634 | News search  | source: WMF

WMF is silent about KO-system in Odense At a direct question to WMF Technical Committee (TC) today about what was decided at the WMF TC meeting this weekend the answer from Gerhard Zimmermann was "Sorry, we have to wait until the minutes are distributed officially. You will be informed on the WMF website in time."

So Minigolfnews cannot today report one of the biggest issues right now in the Minigolf community.

The official Odense website minigolf2009.com was today down so no news could be found on that page either.

Right - maybe I got to many discussions about that the last 2 years and I am tired of that. Personally - as I a person concerned - I tend to love the systems that I need to play. Thinking negative about something, would not improve my results.
Too bad that I am not allowed (by myself) to think impartial about KO ...

@Marcus

I absolutely agree that we have bigger issues in our sport than the KO be or not be. But nevertheless we tend to focus on the issues where everyone has an opinion, and this is one of those issues. And hopefully it’s only a matter of days before its published, but I fear it could be longer.

question one: is it really necessary to know it now or in a few days
question two: is the question KO or not really that important as "we" think it is in reality?

big questions are:
How can we involve more people into tournament minigolf (as the statistics show -> we are losing members in several national federations?
How can we involve more countries to this wonderful sport. (Today started alpine SKI WC in France -> 73!!! nations are competing in a sport, where climate conditions are necessary to be able to do the sport ...
How can we involve sponsors and media to our sport. We need money in our sport promote it more professional.

Sorry to be provocative - but it seems to me that that question (KO-System) got a lot to much attention compared to the rest of our problems.

Above all - I am open to every kind of system. Maybe KO could be improved - but it is nice to watch. As it is nice to watch SUPER BOWL. One Match -> one Winner!
If it is changed back it is also OK to me. I am not a media manager, so I do not need to "sell" our championchips ...

The report will come in time, no reason to worry.

Sad to hear WMF keeps us in the dark around this point...
