As for Shawnee Mission League-
1. Yes, league has been happening for the last few months, although I was lazy about posting scores. My fault. I have mostly been updating the spreadsheet, however, and am just a tad behind on depositing money, but otherwise on track.
2. As of August, I haven't been able to get off work early enough to run league, so Steve Thimmesch has been filling in until league ends for the fall anyways. Steve has always been my go-to guy for running league if I was unable, and he's a tremendous help whenever I need help moving baskets or doing other random small jobs around the course (although Parks and Rec does most of these things themselves anyways).
3. For next year, I'd certainly be interested in staying on as both Course Coordinator and League Director for SMP; it's something I've enjoyed doing and I like being able to help out. As I mentioned before about Parks and Rec, I don't have as many responsibilities as CCs at other courses (P&R empties the trash and mows regularly, handles maintenance on baskets/signs for the most part, and they're very particular about doing any other physical improvements to the course themselves), but I like to be able to help the little that needs to be done. By next year, my work schedule should mostly back to normal and I'll be able to be there to run league.
4. Otherwise, I don't have much to add to the conversation about how leagues are run and how to improve such. I'm young and still pretty new to all of this, so I'm just on board to do my part. Once everyone figures out what is best for the leagues in the future, I'll be glad to participate however I can.
As a bit of a side note as well for next year, Rob Martin had shown interest in helping make SMP a PDGA League, which I (and many who I talked to) thought would be a great idea, and would surely help boost numbers at a very small league. Unfortunately time kind of ran short this summer/fall and there weren't enough weeks left to accommodate. I'd look forward to, early next year, do 10 weeks of PDGA League at SMP (probably once the days got long enough for 6PM starts). Not to jump the gun on those kinds of details for next year, just throwing it out there.
