its a math formula based on the people playing and thier historical data versus your own, then compiled when playing on the same course to create a number from 1000 as the standard top pro.  Its slightly confusing....but all formulas.

THis is why Arutro's 52 was rated lower than it would have been on Sunday, becuase the people he was playing with all had lower ratings, and thus brought it down.  The same can be said of the Am Pool, look at the scores and see how not having highly rated players hurts your chances of having a higher rating.

So it is better to play poorer in an open field than an amateur pool if you are worried about ratings.

Yes, where I want to plant it....those dead bush looking things are actually old bushes that the city cut out a few years ago and poison'd.  The same thing can be seen around the island.  There is actuually a little indentation there that the pin will go in, with the rain today, I plan on going home and going over there to shovel out the opening, and hopefully someone will know where the sleeve is as well as the concrete and water and bring a level and put it in this week.....HINT HINT, maybe not so obvious.....

Right, but people get confused, they think if I go out of bounds I go to the drop zone, which is not the case, you haev to be making an attempt to get to the island to go to the drop zone.  With the people from all over the world coming to this event, I really do not want to make it harder than I need to for instructions.  So I'll move the pin across the street, put it on the peninsula and let the players enforce the rules as they know without thinking.....easier on everyone!

Noted, still going to get rid of it for the worlds though.....I have an alternate placement there that will still make people pucker plenty which is the goal, and challenge for lefty and righty throwers.

IT was WAY windier last night than any time at Cliff on Sunday, so I stand by my ratings, not some formula.

Joining the club is a good thing. (period) it gets you more involved, and you really see where the people are doing the work on the courses (not the city as much and many people think).  Your help will only fuel the fire to continue to creae more disc golf for everyone on a local scale.

League at SMP is free currently, though it may change in the future, but now, just glad to have you join!!

I am planning on working at Cliff Drive all Weekend during this time frame.  What I hope to accomplish will be as follows:
1-clean up the right (south) side of the green and the hill side by the old teeing area.

2-clean out a little to the left (west) of the teeing area, and trim up behind the basket towards the tee of terror.

Trail to #3 clean it out and make it shine all the way down to the bottom so the trail extended towards #3's fairway.

3-clean up around the green cut out the honeysuckle around the green on the rock, and SPRAY it down good.  Clean out the tee area to the right all the way, get all of that outta there.

4-Spray it down good, clean out the area to the left and right of the stairs, chop the weeds down on the hill in front of the pad. (Need to get big weed whacker from Bill)

5-clean up in between the long placement and short, chop, cut, expose.

Trail from #7 short basket to #6 teeing area clean it up, mark it, make it accessible for people to get to (this is not a typo)  This starts about where the wall across the street ends on the Southern end, about 20' away.

6-clean up just off the pad to the old teeing area right and left, maintain grass in there, continue to build the rock walls for compost/dead tree stuff on the Western part, I want like 3-4 of them for ease of mowing eventually....

7-clean up around the middle placement chop dead out, spruce up long placement, leaving a few of the bushes to mess with people.

Trail to 8-clean it up, take down the dead tree, spray the honeysuckle, chop the IVY....

8-Tee pad area mowed, replace the bench, build racks into the hillside to blend in.  Mow deeper on the fairway than what the contractor is (talk with P&R).  Clean out the area just off the teepad towards the short placement.  Build the stage with left over forms after the pads are done.

Paint the road with solid OB line, just one Jack, not three.....

13 & 15-Chop the ivy from the big tree then SPRAY IT DEAD.....

This is my own personal todo list.  You do not have to be me to complete anything listed.  If you want to help, even if its spraying for an hour, let me know, and I can get you a sprayer.  I would love to spray out there for a few hours with about 4-5 of us (I ahve the containers) then come back the week and chop it all down.

5 out for a BEAUTIFUL evening, we had 2 people show up that played all weekend in the Wide Open, one of them was a winner, and the other one made it through the weekend.  It looked as though Arturo was going to take away MORE MONEY from Cliff drive as his shot on #5 missed by inches from capping the basket and making us all cry, but alas the round ended and no one hit the basket on their first throw, though I came kinda close on #10.....

We all played relatively well, except for Artutro, he miseed a few E-Z shots.....(ratings based on final round from Sunday)

Arturo-52 (1040)
Jack-59 (980)
Danger-60 (971)
Morales-64 (937)
Demian-64 (937)

Was the homeless lady from Hole #1 at Cliff part of the gallery over the weekend?

Dork.....had you moved aroud from that lounger you would have known it.

Glover, it is basically going over the drop zone ruling.  Trying to explan that you need to be past the drop zone to use it seems to confuse people.  Also league play last week the course was different than what we did for the Wide Open.

Brad, thanks for the kind words.  Not to take anything away from DICK, but he did do a pretty good job, but it takes a lot more people behind the scenes that help to make this event run smooth.  Those of you that did not go to Stonewall missed a pretty good time....those of us that stayed late drinking out of the "lid" is something that I know we will never forget!

Looking forward to hopefully playing in this event next year.

It got blisters, and was destroyed.  The city ran out of money to run the fountains as well, so that tourney may vanish as well.....With the World's this year, I do not plan on running any other PDGA events this year at this time.  If someone would like to step up and take this event, that would be great.

I am working on an event that is very selfish in some respects, but wonderful in others.  My daughter has been invited to go to DC for a school project, but the catch is that you have to pay for it.  The cost is ~$3500, so I am going to have a Send Marley to DC event for her to see what we can raise.  I am hopeful that I can get over $1000.....

More to follow on that.  The Sun Burn Open was actually brought up here by a person that used to run it and then when he moved here, asked for it, didn't show up to run, or do anything, then I kept it going, but not this year, and doubt that I will do it again.

I'll work on the pads.  The Island hole will not be used at World's, I'll create another pin placement that is just as precarious, and doesn't require a PHD to remember......I'll leave the island for the other events that we have......
