Time for the first league qualifier for team east. Today Tuesday the 21st (April) at swope. Tomorrow Wednesday the 22nd (April). Liberty Top 4 scores from each league get invite. If course is still short then swope qualifier will be pushed back.

This was posted on the Facebook page.  I know many of our fine folks don't have that facebooger thing, so just sharing the information

Which layout?  All nickels, (currently the women's layout for the Challenge) or Red baskets and nickels?

???

Since the Blue River goes to both courses, it makes sense to attach them.  This is a revisit to the "Sun Burn Open" that was along these lines about 10 years ago.  All the work at Blue Valley and the fun course of Swope will make this a great day.  The following week I believe that Rob Martin is planning another event at Blue Valley (Big Blue) where I believe he will be STRETCHING out Blue Valley and putting it's teeth in.  This will give you a chance to play alternate courses and formats on a great track of land.  Something that course needs more of for certain!

One round Swope UBER short and a modified Blue Valley (think last years club championships).  Will probably cap at 90, play Swope in the morning, and Blue Valley in the afternoon.

It is a PDGA C-Tier (entries will be $35-$60 for non PDGA members +$10 more)

More information to follow.

awesome work folks!

Hole 9 is a 4?  Sigh.  Maybe u should go right not left.

Mando TREE up the fairway so you can't go right.....

I would say that 18 short is a 3 as well, putting it at 60.....honestly if you go 4 on #18, you need to go 4 on #7

For cliff;
55 or 56, hole #1=4, and then uncertain if #16 will be called a 4 or not.

Yes, lightning does change things, which brings up a GREAT safety point about stoppage in play.

You DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT, have to mark your disc with a mini, use something like a rock, a branch in the ground works, etc.....the most important thing is if you hear the 3 blasts, GET OFF THE COURSE AND GET TO A SAFE PLACE.

Typically you will have at LEAST 20 minutes before play is to resume, some give you 30 minutes.  It is YOUR responsibility to know when you are to start.

This isn't Scott's first rodeo, and knowing our weather I am sure that he will mention the scenarios at the players meeting.  You can't unilaterally decide the weather is bad, rain sucks, but if there is no immediate lightning concerns, play on in the rain.

blue valley is set, they just played it different last night.  They are both set.

I would send them to City of Fountains to watch the event as well.  Can see the 2 "hood" courses that everyone seems to feel is unsafe as a refuge in a land that was ignored, and how we have changed the landscape.  That would be great PR on both aspects for certain.

11 short is also a fun run down the hill.   I think that is a new placement.

Nope, just re-set.  Been there a few years now.

basically from hole 9 to hole 14 you are playing the inner course, skipping holes 10 and 11, this allows you to play holes 17 and 18 instead.

I forget that most people don't have the hours on this course that I do, so I am sorry for it being confusing.  Doug will make it easier I am sure.

have fun folks.

Which pool will play Cliff Drive in the afternoon?  Thanks.

We will be dividing the event into two pools.  I will decide who is in which pool by

Thursday

Everyone will be meeting at Blue Valley to check in for the event.

:-D

You're welcome Mike!

This is the way that I play the inner course 9-18
9. throw to red basket throw to the basket on the hill straight in front of you from original 9 pad
10.use alt. pad and throw to #9 basketOriginal short course flow here....then walk to the "short pad for #11, like you were to go at the bottom of the hill from #11 short and play
11.use alt. pad and throw to #11 basketThis may be UBER short if there isn't a red basket in #11 long, deal with it, it is ok!  :-)
12. throw to red basketAcross #13 long to the alternate short basket on #12, it's really not shorter, but easier to play and then go to the alternate #13 pad makes it easier to do
13. use alt. pad and throw to #13 basket
14.-18. play normal pads to their baskets.

By playing it this way, you don't really change the numbering of the holes as well.  You play 9 as 9, and then the short on #9 becomes 10, but then you are throwing to #11 basket the next throw, and following the sequence of the course essentially not climbing for #10 and #11, taking that hill out of the equation, but leaving in 17 and 18.  It is a fun little track.  It is what we played the other day when Doug took us out to show off the work being done.

Wish I could make it tonight, but it unfortunately won't happen.  Don't fret over it though, get out there and have some fun!
