There are SOOOOOO many people that I can thank that this list shames me to even post it.

That being said, there is still some work to do out there, and we will be tidying it up to make sure that you enjoy a great disc golf experience, and overall enjoyment to the park that so many long for!

Thanks!

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive League Night 8/11/14
« on: August 11, 2014, 10:35:11 AM »
We will be playing league at Cliff Drive tonight.

I am hopeful that we will be playing with the new holes and the complete Lion's Den Open version.  I will bring maps, but here it is in a nutshell.
1-playing Hole #1 to the practice basket
2-playing fro the road to the original long #1 basket
3-playing the LONG hole NEW #1 placement, yes LONG not short as we did 2 weeks ago, but LONG, it is pretty darn cool.
4-playing from the short placement of the new #1 last time as the teeing area for the new #2 for the time being to the new #2 pin on the hillside
5-playing original #2 (short)
6-playing original #3 only
7-playing #4 to the right (short)
8-playing #5 (short)
9-playing #6 (long right)
then go to #10 original-yeah sorry about the walk, we can discuss to see if we want to play 20 holes, and add #8 hangar and #9-group decision.....

10-playing #10 to the right shorter (middle placement)
11-tee from road behind first tree on #18 to practice basket (Blue)
12-#11 Short to practice basket
13-play from road behind tree on #11 to #11 long pin (ala Sully placement)
14-#12
15-#13  Short or middle (I haven't decided yet on this one, leaning towards middle...
16-#15 Under the tree
17-#16 long
18-Tee from #17 pad to long #18 basket

If the new holes are "too muddy" to play we will play as described above using #8 to the hangar and #9 for the round tonight.

I am hoping to swing by and get everything moved before the round (moving #13 to the middle and #18 to the top if you have keys....) and then planting with temp the new pins on #1 and #2.

The short track and lots o'aces can be found and started tonight at Cliff.

Yes, and the plan is to use the new holes as well.  Posting something about it here in a few

...and always carry a rulebook with you, or download it on your phone (and don't forget to read and understand it). This won't be the only time you are confronted with uncertainty on the course from a TD or another player.

ugh.....resisting..... :-X

So about the Lion's Den Open Prep day tomorrow, I am going out, are you?

66
You decide if you want to be a PRO in our sport or not.  You can always play pro, you have to pay more, you can win cash, but once you accept it, you become PRO.  You then have to petition the PDGA to go back to Am Status within the guidelines (yours truly did just that) if you elect to do so.

The bottom line, it is a personal decision to make.  The rules though based on ratings and how you can play are quite specific.  As long as Loomis isn't changing them at the conversation point you can be rest assured that people will follow the guidelines.  There are other guidelines as well which didn't happen in the event this time.  You can actually have people as PRO's with ratings above the 970 that would have still been eligible to play based on the rating they had when they signed up, or the cut off date.  The most recent ratings may have elevated them past that, but they would still be eligible for the event.  That would have REALLY ruffled some feathers huh? :o

About this Lion's Den you speak of.....

67
By that logic Utz, I have been playing regularly since the early 80's.......really think I am a "pro"

68
Same day as the Tree Love Classic at Cliff...too bad...

69
Claring made me look at my rating a coupe of years ago when I was classified as a PRO, I made the cut, but he was watching.

Chris is a stand up guy through and through.  Did nothing wrong.  Played well!

Cliff Drive / Re: Work day Saturday August 8&9 at Cliff Drive
« on: August 07, 2014, 10:45:41 AM »
Cool...mostly this weekend will be focused on what is now 7-8-9, we want to clear out as much as we can, and even go as high as we can on the hillside.

I will have a few of us work on the new portion, but I think that I have it covered, so the next big wave is really driving and clearing out the cliff, the hill, the stage, and ready for the mini and dodgebee area.

This also though will enable us to start to look at the use of the "new" holes by stage where we will be teeing off and going to long #8 and #9 pins.


71
Chris played within the rules, as did many of the "pro's" who competed.  So to get this straight, a 974 rated player scares you because they took cash at an event once, or don't want plastic and want to play for cash?

I get that the purists in some of you (Danger, Stiles, many of you with 4 digit PDGA #'s) agree that this shouldn't be the case.  It is though, and completely legal to do so.  So at a B-Tier the highest rated person took 18th, and the 6th highest rated person won....so chastise him for playing within the rules?

I choose to keep my am status intentionally because I can play other Majors in both divisions that way if the opportunity offers it.  I otherwise would be a pro if I could play Am Worlds and my 915 rating.....but I can play intermediate....I choose not to, and a times I get beat by recreational players.

Any given day, at this point based on the ratings, you aren't talking about super beings all over 1000, he wasn't even close to capping out.....so what do you do about ams over the 975 rating (was hoping there was one)

Tournaments / Re: PDGA Rules ?
« on: August 06, 2014, 02:20:31 PM »
We had a guy named Charlie that was legally blind play quite a bit until his passing.  He used to have his nephew (I believe) go up to the basket and wave a white towel.

He played in the worlds here when I ran it back in 2003.  He actually played probably about 3-5 times a week.
charlie bauersfeld and partner finished third in a jlowe doubles tourney back in 03 as well.
in the 6-6-6 format, 6 best shot, 6 worst shot, and 6 alternate shot.  The alternate shot almost messed him up.

Thanks to James Loveall who notified me that scores were missing.  I had forgot to overwrite the existing data so it wasn't loading the information the right way.  I do appreciate it, and it is FIXED!
