Never played doubles of any kind but read the different formats on the PDGA site. Does WW do best shot, alternate shot, worst shot, etc.?

Best shot. Typically any doubles event will default to best shot unless it is specifically mentioned in the event description. Usually you can assume when it's doubles it will be best shot.

I don't know exactly who found it yet but it has been found.  8)

This is the second time I lost this mini in 12 years time and both times someone who knew I lost it took their time to go find it for me. How lucky am I? Pretty lucky I think.  8) 8)

Found and Lost / Metal Mini at Cliff Drive
« on: October 15, 2015, 09:08:56 am »
I seemed to have either left my metal mini behind or had it fall out of my bag somewhere while playing Cliff Drive yesterday. I had it for sure on #12 and noticed it gone before putting on #17. It was getting too dark when we noticed it missing to look much for it. It's a heavy aluminum mini, plain silver with the MaceMan jester logo engraved on it. It's pretty much one of a kind so if you see anything like it anywhere it's likely mine. With the tourney this Saturday  I'm hoping some honest soul will find it and make sure it gets back to me. I've had it in my bag 12 years so I miss it already. Thanks.

Dunno. Maybe because I have heard the whole grow the sport for so long and yet, I think it is plenty big and popular (around here anyway)

How about innovate the sport? How about make the sport legitimate in the eyes of the public? How about behave like an athlete when you play the sport? How about leave no trash on the course? How about educate people on the sport? How about bring a woman to play disc golf? Improve the sport! How about grow you local club and get the voice of the clubs heard? Not the PDGA and not manufacturers.

The image of disc golf still needs to be  improved. I am always amazed that people say grow it. It doesn't mean more is better at all. As a matter of fact, why grow the sport? So more people can make money off the sport? Are you ready to go pay-to-play?  I know some people are but not me.

^^^^^ This guy right here! ^^^^^

Yep, that's a pretty good price. You can also get them locally at DGW and DD.

Try imagining a spot exactly halfway between you and the sweet spot you want to hit that your disc will have to pass through to make your shot. Then, rather than looking at the basket and aiming at a link or location near the basket, concentrate on putting your disc through that imaginary point in space. That's all I got...  that was a tip from Ron Convers that has served me well. I usually employee it on tricky upshots. But it works on long putts too.

Neil Porras hit #10 at USM last night to collect some ace fund league money. Not sure the current balance now but it's still well over $100. #10 is a shorty with water behind it. Don't want to sound like I'm complaining or anything but I feel like I warmed up the basket for him, having solidly hit the pin just before him. 12"-18" higher and I'd have collected too. Dang it.....  Nice shot Neil!!

Way to beat down a new poster to the forum.

prophetrider27, normally our club president is not this ornery.  Eric must be having a bad day.  I'm sorry.

How is Eric suppose to know who that is by aliases? Is there a club member forum cross reference list of aliases to real names to job titles? ;)

Excellent point. We have discussed this in the past and while we have yet to come up with a way to force individuals to put their real name in their posts, whether as a tagline at the end of their profile or in the user name itself, we do want people would do so. One method we could use but have hesitated to implement is to simply warn everyone then start blocking accounts if they fail to comply by adding their name. So, doing so voluntarily would be genuinely appreciated by all I would think.

  ;)  Right kM?  8)

Ha! A Zager and Evans reference.....  Nicely done. Saw Todd Rundgren perform that tune live last year.

I can't believe I just read one of Jack's verbose posts in such detail I became aware that in his proposed ratings based scheme I wouldn't be able to play at all if my rating were, say, 848.....

I'm sure it's just a typo but it's fun to poke the guy sometimes.....     ::)

Ratings based would be fun provided everyone one had a valid rating.

I, Ken Hostetler, am getting married September 12.  Please forgive my interim absence from golfing activities for the last year or so, I've been busy "getting a life." :P

Ken, are you a club member? Just checking. Can't access spreadsheet at the moment. What's your marital partner's name?

Ken is a dues paid member. I was able to access the list and he's good to go. Congrats Ken!!
