Water Works / Re: 9/8/11 Water Works Mini - Ace!!
« on: September 13, 2011, 02:53:19 PM »
Dick:

"Before that change took place we never had a complaint from ams about the league structure."

Well, I can say that I never complained because I stopped playing league under that structure. Food for thought. This summer I played at least two leagues a week, giving two bucks a week to the club. As an Am, I would not go back to playing for KC Cash. I would play pro now, but six months ago, no way. What changed? I played alot this summer and got better.

I wonder how many come to league for the money? Competition? Or just camaraderie?

"I can see that there is a problem with the pro2 division. Which we all know is essentially just the division for am players to play for cash. But this brings up a good question, how come it is ok for people in age protected divisions to play for cash but not us ams? Because in all reality probably a majority of the old guys playing those age protected divisions are by no means pro players."

And I agree one hundred percent! I do not want funny money! I don't want to sell my merchandise for cash. I want cash!
Response from pro players: Well then move up! Why Masters players don't have to move up. They just need to age. Mind you, I have started playing open in leagues. Now, on the flip side, tourneys are looking worse than ever for AMs: trophy only?!

So, pro 2 brought me out to league all summer. Otherwise, I would not have gone to play for KC cash. Pro 2 offered better competition than AM as well. There are so many players that don't throw 1000 rated rounds week after week, but don't throw 900 rated rounds either.

Pros: Why would I donate just to play up, if I have no chance of winning? (just giving the opposing view.)

I knew I was gonna make make a silly mistake and I did. Ryan, Thank you for finding the air air in my ways.
It reminds me of one of favorite Twainisms:

Thanks Rick. The first link on e-notes is very informative.

One thing that drives me crazy about fonts is this: "Under the Bemoulli Principle, there is then a lower air pressure on top of the frisbee than beneath it. "

So what is the principle? BEMOULLI or BERNOULLI? The latter is correct, but this is exactly why I prefer my students use Times New Roman. Yeah, I am a nerd for words, even their fonts. Also that sentence is a grammarian's nightmare. It reads such that because of the Bernoulli Principle lower air pressure exists. A kind of if so, then  logic is implied here. " According to the Bernoulli Principle"  and lose the "then" would have been a better choice of words. Oh, and air air pressure is not countable so lose the article before lower. Quality of editing is often an indicator or quality of content.

Okay, I am done ranting and nerding out.

Rosedale / Re: Big thanks to Steve Engleman
« on: August 01, 2011, 01:16:48 PM »
Yes, we should all thank Steve Engleman for emptying Down Under. What ton of work! He did it for the reason we all should: because we love the courses.
As a matter of fact, if you see any of the Englemans, say thank you. They have each hepled KC disc golf in their own unique ways.

Thanks to Rick and staff for running this event and doing it well. I love how Rick mixes up the first round cards so new and old players play together. Some other TDs might take a cue on this, or not. Thanks again,

The other great thing about Tuesday at Swope is the non-sanctioned doubles there every Tuesday! Join the double league on that Tuesday. It'd be fun for all, not just the new players.

Good input John T.

From Jack
"The pools are starting to look along these lines for the event-

Pool A-Men's Open 
Fri-WW am & Cliff pm-Sat Blue Valley Tee Times-Sun @ Swope Tee Times
Pool B-All other Pro Divisions
Fri-Cliff am & WW pm-Sat Blue Valley Tee Times-Sun @ Swope Tee Times
Pool 1-Advanced Men
Sat-WW am & Rosedale pm-Sun Cliff
Pool 2-All other Am divisions
Sat-Rosedale am & Cliff pm-Sun WW

If the am pool totals less than 95 players we will put all players in one pool, and that would look like the following then:
AM ONLY POOL
Sat-Rosedale am & Cliff pm-Sun WW"

As of today 6-4-11 there are 68 Pro players registered for the NT event, and 53 Am players registered for the A tier event. Does this mean all 53 Am players are playing for a total of three trophies? This is a trophy only event for the Am players as I understand. Is this correct? Please clarify.
