So I just realized that the 2nd Qualifier is Monday the 13th, while PDGA League will be at Big Blue Valley that week (for City of Fountains).

Do we really want to make people choose between these?

This *shouldn't* happen, as each is a separately registered event.   But who knows, maybe the events are submitted together?  (I don't think it's possible). 

It does happen this way. When DD runs these two days events, the results are submitted together. The PDGA knows that they are separate days, but only split them into two if there is a huge discrepancy in the scores versus the ratings (rain one day but dry the other).

Sometimes, that doesn't even happen as it should. Last year's Frostbreaker was a great example, where it snowed an extra 3+ inches on the Pro/Adv day. Somehow, the PDGA didn't see a big enough ratings gap and smushed them together anyways. The ratings for the second day dropped probably 20 points per player.

EDIT: This is what I know from talking to Scott, unless I've misunderstood how he explained it to me (possible). Not revealing trade secrets here, just relaying the information I was given.

Everyone knows that people from Missouri can't read, let's cut the guy some slack.

General question for the weekend of the event. This would be two rounds each on Saturday and Sunday? One in the morning and one in the afternoon?

Just trying to plan ahead for my work schedule, as I likely won't be able to take off the whole weekend.

Course is set now-

1. Middle across the creek
2. Long
3. Long on the hill
4. Short
5. Long
6. Long left (Sidewalk right is OB)
7. Middle Left
8. Short
9. Long left

11. Middle Original
12. Long
13. Middle Left
14. Short Right
15. Long behind the tree

If there is significant snow like last year, I'll try to move a handful of pins shorter. If the weather is nice, we might be able to move a few pins short for the 2nd rounds. I have to work on Saturday so someone else would have to do it that day. We'll see.

Thanks so much to Jeff and Rebecca who helped me move the baskets this evening, mostly in the dark.

Everything is short.

We had issues on #10, couldn't get the PVC out from the short spot, I'll revisit it Friday afternoon and try to get it out.

Many of the baskets have been moved recently, but not by me. Many of the locks are missing and P&R has been slow to act on replacing them.

I'll re-try to get in touch with them and see if we can't get that situation figured out.

This city was barely able to operate a team style event. This idea is awesome but nigh impossible without incredible leadership and a group of players really committed to it.

Barely? We have had 3 years of team challenge and it has been a hit so far. I look forward to it every year now. It's the best non payout tournament in town.

Yeah, but how many people playing understood the points format? How many of the players really had a grasp on what was going on?

I've loved the event like many others, but for some reason, many people simply don't any formats other than normal scoring.

An event like this would have to be run by someone who really knows what's going on (thankfully we have plenty of great TDs) and the players would have to fully understand the format.
