Then come up with a series play in Ocotober on the weekend.  Play 1-2 courses a weekend in October, come up with a ratins, scoring system, and keep the weekend time frame for this, culminate it with a club championship, and flight those people that played the previous weekend events accordingly.  Then you get singles on the weekend, with no worry about the time, and you have the glow starting for those that want it.

I think that taking a month off earlier is better for most, but those that must work and can't play at 4:00-5:00 start time, still have a chance to play on the weekend.  It allows everyone to play not just those that get off work by 1:00 like some.......(a minority in most cases)

You could do like KS vs. MO courses,

w/e #1 Swope Vs. Rosedale

W/e #2 Olathe Vs. WW

W/e #3 Wyco Vs. P-Hill

W/e #4=Club Championships-
Cliff Drive, Blue Springs
Lees Summit, SM Park

You hit all the courses then and you could truly crown a "Club Champion" not best of the weekend.

You have a couple of options, you can enter as a league play during the weekend event, or you play for score in the overall.  You can also run it as League with payouts that we are accustomed to.

You could either make it each Saturday, start at 9:00 round 1, and 2:00 start on round 2, or do it both on Saturday and Sunday at 12:00, which ever makes sense.  Each course would be a seperate league (SM PARK, you would have to pay in advance elsewhere), so payout will be the same, or we could add a seperate fund ($1-$2) to payout at the Club Championships side bet eligible for those that made at least 80% of the events...

Food for thought.

you can do it early on, it just gets harder in the year.  The early part of the season is not the problem, and you can probably make it to the end of September....quick check indicates that sunset on:
3/15 its 7:24 sunset with twilight at 7:51
3/29 its 7:38 sunset with twilight at 8:05

9/1 its 7:50 with twilight at 8:17
9/30 its 7:04 sunset with twilight at 7:30...

10/4 its 6:57 sunset with twilight at 7:24 (Friday is 6:51 & 7:18)
10/11 its 6:47 sunset with twilight at 7:13 (Friday is 6:41 & 7:08)
10/25 its 6:27 sunset with twilight at 6:54 (Friday is 6:22 & 6:49)


SO I don't think that you need to end it in August, I think that you can make it through September without issue, but Octobr gets really hard to complete....You can see in September we loose about an hour of time of daylight, but in the spring months its not as big of an issue.

You guys can decide, I just know that it is hard to get a good league turnout (except WW) during the October month......

I refrain from putting down in the forums what I have removed over the course of time........some people would be downright disgusted, and never walk the land.  I have more than once thrown up while doing trash duty....

Stiles though, you are truly a great man!  We really have great people to do great things in our parks every day that they are in it.  Be a part of what makes our sport great.  We make a difference in the lives of everyone by paying attention to what we love.  Treat our parks with respect, and try to educate, if not at least inform the general masses that individually we make a small difference, but collectively we are an impact machine!

An-yon......

cans also keep your beer colder, which we all want on a hot summer day!

I always prefer drinking a BPA (Boulevard Pale Ale), which you can unfortuantley only purchase in bottles, but I have been turned on to drinking yard beer (PBR and Busch are my favs) on the course.

Blvd Wheat in the cool aluminum bottle now, if you have to have Blvd, go on up to the wheat.....

yet another reason that the season should end early.

Starting at 4:30 is silly as most of the human society works until 5.......

I think that leagues should end ealry in October, as that is the month that is hardest to make.  Once the clock moves ahead, the first week or so are kinda hard, but after 4/1, its a no brainer to finish on time.....

whats this trash picking up you talk of?  You mean that the city really doesn't clean the parks?  I am shocked to learn that our volunteer efforts is what keep the parks clean.

You guys should spread this word to other disc golfers out there, they may have a few people that may actually help in this clean up that you talk of!

I am trying to keep bottles out of the equation.....geesh! ;D

Although my first thought was keep the empties in teh cooler, and drown the bottle in the cup so that the park people have no reason to ask me what I am drinking......or race home to a fridge full of my favorite......but that really only works with me at Cliff and Blue Valley

If so, I doubt that it would get posted on here.  Once the finalization process comes along, I am sure that there will be a flyer announcing the decision of courses, and what divisions.

You really can not run an event online in a forum.  You have to figure out what makes the most sense for you as the TD, and your staff that will help to make those determinations.

we are spoiled in that almost all of our courses are pretty darn sweet, so regardless of the course configuration, you will have a fun tmie, with challenging courses to test your game.

I would imagine that a flyer would be oput relatively shortly though as we are fast approaching the kick off to leagues!

fat tire is available in cans, but alas Bells does not go into aluminum......sad.....sad.... :'(

Those Boulevard Wheat bottles are cool.  Guiness is available in cans as well, make your own thunder cloud by getting a biodegrable plastic cup as well!

Watching the curling yersterday, (you all already know I am a geek right?) and the announcer said something that hit home with Disc Golf, all these curlers, even though they have come a long way are not highly paid professionals.  They all no matter what level, recreational, country championships, world championships, and even the olympics, if you win on sunday, you still have to go back to work on Monday.

So this olympic thing may be a great idea, but olympic sports are not really the caveat taht will make this sport a self sustaining sport for the athletes.  There are many sports along these lines, so what is the goal od disc golf becoming an olympic sport?  Who does it really help?

I found that comment extremly on point with our sport, and had me thinking all night, even whilst watching the USA play horrible hockey and win, and Canada take forever to heat up, and the RUssian power finally start to move the team, and wondering why Federov really left the NHL, cuz boy still has game.....


So if disc golf were an olympic sport (why note winter olympics?  Ice Bowl every 4 years would be HUGE!) who would it benefit, beside the manufacturers of clothing and discs?  How many curling references do you hear outside of the winter olympics?

We play all over the world, the sport is recognized, but would the olympics really give a jolt to use for local events?
