the atchison course is really fun and REALLY hilly.  the hills remind me a lot of WW.

if you make it up there, make sure to check out the extra 9 hole course that's way up on top of the hill.  you've gotta go way deep in the park to find it.

it's in the little turnaround island about 100 feet past the big tree where the basket is.

i just hope that this is their actual completion date.

i've got several e-mails from them in the past with the new "completion dates"; all have come and gone. 

if you read the parks board meeting minutes, you'll see that their reasoning is that they don't have the available manpower to start the work on the course.  this will get done as resources roll off of different completed projects.

agreed.  it's punishment enough to be in that shule anyway.  there's some pretty thick stuff behind those fences.

I think a lot of what is being called sandbagging is a result of the ratings division lines that were implemented in 2008.

Advanced fields were bigger last year because the cutoff for Adv was 915.  I also think that a lot of players that were rated 900+ were playing up in Adv, so that contributed to big turnouts.

But, when the ratings divisions shifted to Adv being 935 and up, a lot of those low 900's Advanced players that were pretty much always donating got the chance to come back to Intermediate and have some success.   I've brought this up on the PDGA boards before and the peanut gallery response is always the same, play where the PDGA says you should.  The competition committee felt that these splits were fair to everyone.  Couple that decision with the decision to let Pros that have accepted money play Advanced as long as their rating is low enough, and I'm starting to scratch my head and say "Wha happened?"

my standing policy is that the minute my rating goes over 900 you will see me in advanced.

after the next ratings update, i think i'll be pretty close.

heck, you may get your wish earlier than spring gunboat.

1391
nah, just saying my 883 PDGA rating gets a real morale boost from all the sandbagger comments ;)

1392
dan, i think you missed my thick sarcasm.   ;D

considering that the 54 i scored in the 2nd round is my best round at WW ever, i'm hardly what you call a sandbagger on that course ;)

i'm glad someone else decided to call out house  ;)

Plus the level of play is much more laid back and stress free which helps everyone play well.

you sure about that? i seem to remember a gentleman on our card that didn't exactly lower the stress level.
