Winter Leagues / Re: September and/or October Wednesday glow?

Getting my thoughts a little more organized on this.

Currently considering doing a one rounder at each course:

Swope

Prairie Hill

Shawnee Mission Park - per this website, it is open until 11pm prior to Nov. 1st.  I've been there after 8pm after 11/1 and they do kick you out.  http://jcprd.com/park_admin/hours.cfm

Prairie Center - Front half only.  Holes 1-8, 18.  Do this loop twice.

WyCo

If we settle on these 5, it would run October 1 - Oct. 29.  Wednesdays at 6pm.

It would not be PDGA sanctioned.  It is possible to sanction glow rounds for PDGA, but after running 3 10-week PDGA leagues this year, I'm ready for a bit of a break from it.

P Hill is a great glow course. But it is alittle east.
Aaron, if we stopped at P Hill for one evening in October, any dates you prefer (Wednesday)?

I don't have any particular format set.  It won't be all winter though.  4-6 weeks.

Duane, I have seen those $3 lights sitting on top of baskets before.

Do most have some sort of switch on them?  These did:

What I'm wondering is, if I charge them the day before glow league, but don't have a way to turn them off, they will run out sitting in the trunk of my car during the day of league itself.  I work in a 10-story building, I'm not able to just let them sit outside while I'm at work.

Any thoughts?

these industrial grade sticks are 10 for $10

There was some issues with Shunga last spring (discussed on Topeka's facebook page).  I wasn't sure if the city was going to let them use it again or not.  I was hoping for confirmation from LS Discs.

I would be interested in a course like SMP.   PC would work ok if you played from a temp pad after 12 to 14's basket and then added a temp hole between 16 and 17.

Granted I have never played a glow round before, but would those $3 solar power path lights work to stick in the basket.  They put off a decent amount of light and would only cost $54 once and be reusable.

I like both of these ideas. 

What do others' think?

For me, Blue Springs is a jaunt.  Takes me 70 minutes to get home from there.
Legacy is not too bad.

Forgot about P. Hill - dough!

Can you confirm which courses will be used?

Crestview - gold or regular?
Lake Shawnee
LS South?
Big Shunga?

I do not want to side rail this thread.  But there is a related thread started about continuing Wednesday league as a glow league.  Go here to read / comment:

Winter Leagues / September and/or October Wednesday glow?
« on: August 19, 2014, 09:17:11 AM »
Wanting to gauge interest in September and/or October Wednesday glow as a continuation of Wandering Wednesday. 

This may or may not be necessarily wandering.  I'm more concerned about which courses lend themselves to setting up glow easily.

Originally I was thinking of taking a short break in September and doing just a 4-week mini-series in October.  However if there is a lot of interest, I would consider just moving straight into a 4-7 week glow series ending no later than October 29th. 

Cost would be:

$3 - payout - normal KCFDC league payout schedules
$1 - club
$1 - cover glow equipment.  If / when enough money was collected this $1 would stop being collected.  It may be a situation where we just don't collect one week, or where we stop collecting for the rest of the series, etc.  I would buy some higher quality glow sticks from Amazon instead of the cheap crap from Dollar General.  The models I was looking at were nearly $1 per stick.
$1 - Optional Ace Fund.  Would consider rolling the PDGA league ace fund through this glow series.

For courses options:

WyCo - I like how the baskets are close to the road so someone can drive around in a car and place glow sticks on before the round starts.

Rosedale - seems to be an easy glow course, but what makes me hesitant is how busy this course is.

Swope - I like Swope, but Swope at night makes me nervous.

SMP - I think glow here would be really fun, but I really dispise their strong stance on no alcohol and nazi like approach to dogs and leashes.

PC - little leary, back 9 would be a pain to find a disc if it went into the woods at night.

We would start at 6pm.

As info, Sept 10 sunset is 7:35.  October 29 sunset is 6:21.
