that is the single worst placement on the course.....
15 long long right

Absolutely the most unsafe pin in the existence of the course.  And never needed.....

Am's won't get their players pack until after the opening ceremonies.

So you got it....
Not sure I'm understanding the point of having a check in Thursday afternoon other than to say, 'I'm here' when that can also be done 1 hour before tee time on Friday.

Not sure what you don't understand when you said exactly what it is....  You can check in and then you don't have to wait in line to get checked in, it will save you time...  Plus there are other divisions than yours that can get their items.....

If it is too rainy on Saturday to do work, we will move to Sunday as Doug indicated....

Thanks Eric, and sorry about that....

many of the thornfield events (typically all for charity) are 4 person scrambles.

Uncertain if Scott is running the MW Doubles Event this year, but normally there aren't a large amount of doubles tournaments.

Sounds like a good time, unfortunately I will be in Des Moines that weekend, but what a way to spend Memorial Saturday weekend!


Long day at work...I will get a better posting hopefully tomorrow....

Kevin Manning and CD were the winners of a spot on the Eastside Team.

No Aces were harmed in the making of the event so the Cliff Ace Fund will move to $599, the Ace FUNDs ARE not being carried over to the PDGA leagues next week, so we will look at this ace fund on 5/9 back here at Cliff.

To be fair, I can't think of anyone that qualified that didn't play a round that wasn't a health reason....on either side...with the Doss exception, and then they couldn't provide mailing address to support a KCFDC area resident requirement, the "best" side tried to ply....typical, they look to "Bend" rules.....get it?

It's certainly been the expectation of most people who "qualified" in the past that they have the option to play all three rounds if they're available.  That's why in previous years the rosters are commonly listed as qualifiers and alternates, which assumes that an alternate will be used if a qualifier is unavailable for some reason.  Otherwise, what are you qualifying for, the potential to participate? 

There will be a total of 21 spots available, as such the order may change even during the set up from the captains.

Are you implying the entire 21 person roster should be present during the snake draft even if they may not play?  To my knowledge, the captains always have 16 names on their list and cross them off as the matchups are selected.

That has never been the case that all those that qualified were guaranteed a spot for all rounds.  Captains have always been able to use any member from the team, at times people have stated, I can only do round X for certain, but at no point are those people that qualify only the people available.  There were initially up to 20, that was amended by the captains this year.  The term "alternate" really isn't that, it is merely a bench, just as any sport.

read the rules for more clarification if that may help.  I think that I have seen in almost every year of the venue that not all 16 players that start are the same at the last match.  Specifically the Team Rosters section....

I haven't put on the stanchions in the past, but if they are available, we can work on that as well.

As for maps, I'll see what we can come up with....

These qualifiers add up to 16 spots, which I assume would be the "starters" on the east team.  Now that the Diva event will act as a qualifier for one woman, this puts us at 17 total qualifiers.  Which of the remaining qualifiers are going to lose a qualifying spot?

I wouldn't 'make the assumption that these will be the starters.  Just as you have more people on teams, doesn't mean the first person chosen is the starter.

There will be a total of 21 spots available, as such the order may change even during the set up from the captains.  To assume that these are the "starters" isn't accurate, nor has it been the "norm"  Playing people against people and strength of games from time to time is important.  Who is to think that a Captains pick isn't someone that they want in there immediately?

Captains decide the starting line ups, not the qualifiers.

Yes bud, I will do my darndest to be out there for ya.

F*#& that positive attitude BS, though.

Agree'd, you don't need to come with a positive attitude.  Your attitude is just fine the way it is!

I plan on heading out to prep the course for the Wide Open (I am sure that Doug and Kreeger are on it as well!!)

I would like to repain the road OB's

Possibly paint circles

Get mulch dropped where needed (Doug any input here is appreciated)

Ensure the course is set in correct placements.

Remove all other baskets from the course

Trim areas that may need it.

What you can bring is as follows:
Positive attitude

Hope to be in and out of there from about 9-1, maybe then play some golf.
