Golf spectators
Message ID:
So, I was thinking about how to make the event more entertaining for
the spectators and it occurred to me that, in a 'real' golf game they
don't just watch the leader board, they watch the holes being played.

So, how about having some way of letting spectators see the
entries. It would (of course) require some sort of honour system; at
the very least disbarring any spectator who has seen a solution from
entering that hole, but I think it would definitely make for better
watching. Certainly judging by some of the comments of the judges,
seeing the solutions come in has proved very entertaining.

There could maybe even be a category in the scores for 'best kibbitz';
akin to BoB, but submitted by the 'spectator team' (this score should
not be revealed until the end of the hole though).

Just a few thoughts.
