Rosedale / New Player's League at Rosedale
« on: June 02, 2017, 08:37:21 AM »
I want to clarify a few things about New Player's League both at Pleasant Hill and Rosedale.  New Player's League is open to everyone and is always free.  It's meant to be a friendly place for people to improve their game, get some pointers, give some pointers, and hang out with like-minded people.  While NPL doesn't play a full formal set of rules, we do try to teach full tournament rules in case a new player decides to compete in a formal environment.  Since I hadn't taken the time to do so this year, I'm going to list the generalities of NPL rules. If you have any questions, you can always ask me.

In no particular order:
1) All OB and mandos are in play unless the League Coordinator (that's me) calls it otherwise.

2) While we aren't a competitive league we do keep score, tracking all throws and penalty strokes.  We do this so that people can see how they are doing and so that new players can learn how to record scores.

3) Tags can be in play on card if the players on that card agree before the round starts.  The LC will NOT settle on-card tag disputes because those were personal agreements.

4) Since we are attempting to teach, penalty strokes are not assessed for foot-faults, scoring errors, or other general rules violations.  However, we will take the opportunity to show what was done wrong and how to correct it for formal play.  We sometimes allow a second shot for learning purposes.

5) No one is to be made to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome.  We have players of all skill levels.  The round may be longer than normal as a new player is coached.  It's just part of this league.

6) If you are a new player coming out, the LC is going to attempt to card you with one of the best players available.  This is done intentionally to teach.

7) We also play and teach disc golf etiquette rules.  Furthest disc plays first, quiet on the tee box, etc.  Although for pace of play "ready golf" may sometimes be used, in general be courteous to each other.

Pleasant Hill / NPL results 6/1/2017
« on: June 02, 2017, 08:36:11 AM »
New Player's League hit a new high for the year with 27 players out last night.  Including at least 5 faces I'd never seen out there before.  CTP was used to teach a quick lesson on rollers.  Thanks to Brian P and Aaron S for their teachings on that.  Aaron won the CTP and donated his win to Chris E and Theresa E.  He then donated from his personal stash an Atlas, a Shield, and a Destroyer to help these brand new players round out their bags.  What can I say?  Aaron's just a great guy.  Full results are in the spreadsheet as always.

New Players League got our round in before the rain could get to us last night.  13 players out despite me trying to forget to card a couple of them.  For CTP we practiced tomahawks which I won't throw again any time soon because it killed my elbow.  Chris K won the CTP and took a Lucid Sheriff.  Full results are in the spreadsheet.  https://drive.google.com/open?id=19FgLZFB3xcszgGMZpcyC8lKh4ziMI063jfnNTNGuxUA

So, I've been forgetting about the forum when I've been posting the results.  This post will be a catch-up and I'll remember to do this from now on.

New Players League at Pleasant Hill last night had 14 players out.  A little bit of sprinkles didn't stop us.  We had an quick lesson on thumbers for CTP and then Drake showed us how it's done and took a Gold Vision.  Full results in the spreadsheet.  https://drive.google.com/open?id=19FgLZFB3xcszgGMZpcyC8lKh4ziMI063jfnNTNGuxUA.

Beginners / New Players Leagues

If you're new to the sport and looking for a way to get to know people, get some advice on the game, and get to throw more you you should check out New Players League.  It runs Mondays at Rosedale Park, and Thursdays at Pleasant Hill City Lake.  Right now, we are teeing off at 5:30PM, but tee time will move to 6PM in May.

The league is a mix of players ranging from brand new to very experienced.  There's no charge for New Players League.  Everyone is welcome.

My name is Joe Burke, I run both locations and I can be found on Facebook.  Come on out and see what we do!

Pleasant Hill / New Players 9/29
« on: September 30, 2016, 07:43:55 AM »
Last night was this year's finale for New Players league.  Couldn't have been a better evening.

Big news of the evening was Nabil's ace on hole 18!  Congratulations, Nabil!

Since it was the last round of the year, I let the winnning team on each card choose from the swag and discs in the donation boxes.  Hottest card was Aaron & Steve at 46 followed by David & myself at 49.  (It was all David.)

I've really enjoyed doing this for the last part of the year and I fully intend to be back at it again in the spring.  Thursday New Players league will be at Pleasant Hill next spring and I have no intentions of making any other major changes to it.

In the mean time, I'm looking forward to putting league and glow rounds during the winter.
