Should be able to make it today.... I'm horrible in the wind so I'm sure I'll regret it.

I guess we did cut it a little close last week.. I'm just a glutton for punishment and have never had a chance to play WYCO all long.

Set it LONG and brutal... Each week we will plant a new tree as well.

If you are going to put up a league ace fund on an off day at a non-league event, where do you draw the line in the future? Why not just put it up every time you play? Why not every tournament? What about tournaments where different divisions play different tees? What about tournaments where one division plays a short, ace run filled course while another division simultaneously plays a much longer course?
It's ultimately your decision what you choose to do with the league you ard generous enough to facilitate but keep in mind that many people commit to one day a week and feel they have "invested" in it. I personally don't care what goes on with the Ace fund but I am far from a regular.

Scott, let me know and I'll do my best to be out there next week. I can't make tomorrow though. I go straight from school to work :/

I was really hoping it wasn't disc golfers... Sucks that the city took it up so far from the ground. It not only ruined the hole, but it looks really ugly.

Is it just me, or does it seem like someone with a chainsaw has gotten bored (or mad) at a few workdays around here? I'm guessing that is the case on hole #8 at Lakeside or on #10 (short right) at Waterworks because they really used to be good holes with some opportunity for score separation. While these may be the most extreme examples, they are far from the only ones.
Did anyone discuss this? I didn't even see a workday scheduled or a discussion where someone MIGHT have had a say... I realize I'm not really affiliated with these courses aside from general club membership (if that counts for anything) but I just don't understand how anyone would imagine removing the entire bottom of the big cedar on #8 at Lakeside (which is really the best alternative to a sand trap) and many of the lower branches from the guardian trees as well.
I understand there have been several dead or diseased trees removed on many of the courses, but it doesn't appear to be the case in either of my examples or in several others throughout the area.

I was out there just before you... I don't know if I'm missing it (I'm at work and don't have my bag to check) but I throw a bottom stamp destroyer on that hole a lot. I'd hate myself if I left it behind anywhere.

Most casual golfers don't really have a better player they can learn from. Although clinics aren't going to magically make someone a better golfer overnight, it will give them valuable tidbits to work on. Clinics also put us out there as members of a community who support one another and introduce those players to people who can help give them the tools to develop their game as well as brings them into a community of like-minded individuals.
I also think mixed divisions on cards could help as well. I never had the benefit of having anyone mentor me and the most I ever learned was during rounds on cards with the pros.

Thanks Tank. I like that philosophy on correctly breathing get in order to correctly align your body. That is exactly the type of insight I think could really help developing players. I'm still not sure exactly how to best implement this type of program but with you and Joe on board so far I'd really like to get something going.. There are a couple others I have in mind that I think would be great as well.

What do you think about having these at leagues? I think rotating leagues, or doing monthly minis with clinics might best help drive membership but am open to suggestions.

Sign me up as well Rob... I'll do my best to be at as many as possible.

I was really hoping for something beyond the beginner level to help rec/int level players step up to competitive league play or tournament play. There is a pretty well-defined line between beginner league and competitive play and a complete absence of any significant aid to transition to the next level for these players.... maybe I just don't see it the same way as most, or maybe I'm missing something but I haven't gotten much good feedback on this idea. I thought we were trying to bring up league attendance, active membership and club presence?

Keep us updated and I'll try my best to make workdays.

Leagues / Re: 2014 KCFDC PDGA League
« on: March 19, 2014, 05:39:50 PM »
Not sure if anyone else noticed, but this last ratings update they fixed the PDGA leagues.  Now every round is calculated individually (as it should be).  The example I used,
 68 at big blue, is now a 967 round. 

So...no worries on changing courses, changing layouts, etc etc.  Yay.

Where do we find the course ratings then? So you are saying that regardless of the layout, your score relative to other players and conditions the ratings are set based only on your individual score? 68 at Big blue during the wide open was like a 980 and those were pretty ideal conditions.
