Tournaments / Re: 2014 City of Fountains - PDGA B Tier- April 19th
« on: March 26, 2014, 10:49:36 AM »
All players are playing the courses, but I think that the determination will be based on players in pools as to if they become split or not (Sending folks to another course).

Can you come out and help?  Would love to see a few folks out here for certain!

no, it will not be.  The holes will not be ready until later this year.  Plus concrete pads, etc....Mighty MO this fall possibly, and probably (Hopefully) the LDO will have some of them in place.

Looking like GREAT weather for the weekend.  Hopefully the rain from Thursday will have soaked into the ground nicely by then!

this is a joke right? ;D

51
Do we know what the real Wide Open configuration will be yet? It's supposed to be a combo of Little/Big Blue right?

No It is not to be a combo.  It will be regular Blue Valley.

52
Rob,

You can start a spreadsheet and upload it in the PDGA site and that will populate the people that are playing, so that would be the "pre-registered" piece.

There are not "course ratings" there is no such thing.  There are ratings (based on the PDGA rating system that is) for the events, and it is based on having at least 3 rated players to determine the ratings for that round in particular.

After you folks were kind enough to notify me of the error on the ratings, I worked with the PDGA (they actually did it, thanks to Steve Ganz and Andrew Big Dog, and Chuck Kennedy) to let them know of the error in the submission of the final TD report for the leagues.  In that I failed to alter the league locations and they got it corrected.

So to answer the question, again if you play OPEN in the Wide Open you score will almost guaranteedly be higher than in other divisions because of the pool you play in has players with higher ratings, that in turn allows for a higher rating on your score based on the people you are playing with.

If you want higher ratings play open......it is a silly thing personally, but it is the only silly thing that is "agreed upon" by our current players.

Right now the last Monday of the Month will be a different Format moving forward as well.  With the exception of this month, where just kicking it off is the plan.

Moving ahead, Doubles, Wolf, Cali-Cali Partner possibles will be happening.  We will be doing CTP's as well as Farthest Putt contests through the year.

On last year's Series events winner, I haven't made a decision yet, as I forgot about it.  It was to be able to entice Am's to play for certain...but really we didn't attract as many as I would have likened.

The course though is seeing much more play this year already.  On Saturday when I was out there working, there were probably over 40 people playing.  I had one of the local regular park runners ask if a tournament was going on.

Between kids older, work, school and re-design of the course it does take time.  Something that I don't have as much to give as I once did.

For those that don't know, typically on the first Monday of the Month the KCFDC League night is at Blue Valley-This aligns with the Cliff Drive League night normally on Mondays as well.

The ace fund between the 2 courses will be shared so, it carries over accordingly.  The schedule for the leagues as of today appears to be as follows:

April 7th Blue Valley-"Inner Course"-playing from the short pads and the course within the course

May 5th-Big Blue Valley

*****Note Change in JUNE to align with the Wide Open*****

June 16th-Wide Open Configuration-Big Blue

July 7th-Mix of use of courses for 18 hole safari style

August 4th-BIG BLUE (Last one of the year for the League Night)

I know you may be asking why is August the last, well, we end League in September due to daylight, and there are not leagues for the Holidays on Monday on the NE side.  THat would make it Memorial Day in May and Labor Day in September.  Unfortunately Labor Day kills the September schedule for the league.  Matt MAY decide he wants to run it on the holidays, but historically I have encouraged people to enjoy the holiday with family and friends.  If you must play in a league, the fine folks in OooooooLAYyyyyyyyTHAaaaaaa  will gladly accept you in their confines on these Mondays.

We look forward to having another great year of Disc Golf in NE.

The second series of League PDGA style.....was available for only 6 weeks, and no one played all 6 weeks....so there will not be awards for the 2nd session.  Travel and weather impacted this season of events.

However, we did have the following:

Jose Ossa-played in 5 weeks, and averaged 55.8-MPO
Jack Lowe-played in 4 weeks and averaged 61.8-MM1
CD Steiner-played in 3 weeks and averaged 62.0-MPM

Only Ryan Keck made it out for at least 3 weeks during this season, and Ryan is classified as an MPO-his average was 64.3

Again NO PDGA leagues are planned at this time in Cliff/Blue Valley.  That could change if someone wanted to step up and run it accordingly.  Must work with Matt about making that happen.  Otherwise, this whole league thing is starting on the 31st.  I will get it started, but I have class on Monday nights, so I will be taking off after it gets moving.

Well.....the Winner from the initial League series from Last Season for the First Round would be Jose Ossa.

Jose shot in 9 weeks, with an average of 57.3-MPO
Matt Crowe played in 7 weeks and shot an average of 61.3-MA1
Danger shot in 9 weeks and averaged 60.4-MPM
Jack Lowe played in 7 weeks and averaged 59.6-MM1

Only Rob Martin played in all 10 weeks with an average of 72.2-MA1


We had 53 different people play that completed 150 rounds.  We had 5 people play that didn't complete rounds.  I think that officially it was also the first year that Ryan A. Westa didn't get an DNF during the first session.

I am comprising the 2nd session, but need to get the PDGA stuff set up correctly first.

Based on the above stats, our first Series Winner will be Jose Ossa.  Sorry Rob.  I may have a "Perfect Attendance" award as well though, because I dig that kind of thing on people!  I only wish I wasn't traveling so much to get that award myself........

Cliff Drive / 2014-The Extrodinary Leagues of the Northeast
« on: March 17, 2014, 10:03:29 AM »
In case you only read in the Cliff Drive Section on this forum.....(well you do get an extra credit point for reading this section only, as well as a keepsake to be determined later.....)  I posted this in the league section, but it does pertain to this course as well as Blue Valley!

Northeast League will be commencing March 31.  It will be at Cliff because....well March 31 isn't the first Monday of the month now is it?

Matt Eklund will be starting out to run leagues out there, we may need help over the year to make it work, but suffice it to say, we will get it done.

What does that mean to you?

It means get out here and play disc golf.  It also means that on April 7th we will be at Blue Valley.

It also means that by playing leagues out at Cliff Drive you will from time to time get to play on some of the "new design" holes this year.  Every week will be slightly different, in that you may experience a different throw from the previous week.

We will be shooting to start on the first 2 weeks by 5:45, so try to be there by 5:30 with registration ready, after that we should be good to go.

If you too want to help keep the league running strong, and step up to learn how, just ask.  We will make it very easy on you.

This year I also plan on giving away "league trophies" for those that make it to at least 13 leagues for some varying averages, attendance, and work day partners.  Some will be subjective scoring, and others will be based on stats.  No PDGA league this year will happen unless someone else wants to run it at Cliff, we will allow it (you would only pay $1 to that person extra) if someone steps up to do.  Otherwise we will be a KCFDC and Cliff Drive/Blue Valley ONLY league.

We may at one point end up playing a modified 27 hole round, with 9 holes of Mini golf thrown in the mix as well.

As my time allows it to help be creative we may do some crazy things at cliff this year, so watch as we move towards more disc golf in new lands out here!
