BUMP

-Can I get an Admin to sticky this thread please?

Moving up start date to next Monday, April 6 as no team of local significant interest is in the NCAA Championships.

See original post for updated locations and start times.

First post has master link for results.

The Ace Fund will be various Innova baskets.  Complete rules are:

ACE FUND RULES:
 Instead of a cash payout, an Innova Discatcher Traveler or Innova Discatcher Sport Basket will be given if an Ace is hit.

 Rules for 25 or less players in Ace Fund:

 Player who hits an Ace gets the Innova Discatcher Traveler basket.

 If more than one Ace is hit, only those those players that hit an Ace will do an Ace Run after the second round.

 If no Ace is hit, all players that paid into the fund will participate in Ace Run after the second round.


 Rules for 26-45 players in Ace Fund:

 Player who hits an Ace gets the upgraded Innova Discatcher Sport Basket.

 If more than one Ace is hit, only those those players that hit an Ace will do an Ace Run after the second round.

 If no Ace is hit, all players that paid into the fund will participate in Ace Run after the second round.


 Rules for 46-55 players in Ace Fund:

 One Innova Discatcher Sport Basket and One Innova Discatcher Traveler will be available to be given away.

 No Aces - everybody plays the Ace Run.

 One Ace - that player gets their choice of basket, everyone else plays the Ace Run for the second basket.

 Two Aces - those two players get the baskets. Game over. They can do an Ace Run for basket choice.

 Three or more Aces - only those players that paid into the fund participate in the Ace Run.



 Rules for 56-79 players in Ace Fund:

 Two Innova Discatcher Sport Basket will be available to be given away.

 No Aces - everybody plays the Ace Run.

 One Ace - that player gets their choice of basket, everyone else plays the Ace Run for the second basket.

 Two Aces - those two players get the baskets. Game over. They can do an Ace Run for basket choice.

 Three or more Aces - only those players that paid into the fund participate in the Ace Run.


 Rules for 80 or more players in Ace Fund:

 Two Innova Discatcher Sport Basket and One Innova Discatcher Traveler will be available to be given away.

 No Aces - everybody plays the Ace Run.

 One Ace - that player gets their choice of basket, everyone else plays the Ace Run for the remaining baskets.

 Two Aces - those two players get their choice of baskets. Rest of paid in players will do an Ace Run for remaining basket.

 Three or More Aces - only those players will do a Ace Run for the baskets.



 ACE RUN RULES:

 Your strategy is either to run it or to get close - it depends on your playing style.

 This is not a true CTP. An Ace trumps a chain out which trumps the cage top or basket (equal) which trumps the pole. If nobody hits anything, then it is CTP - closest to pin.

In Ottawa today. Parking lot has 26 spaces. Walked into closest business, Fry Orthodontist and received permission to use their lot, another 28 spaces. Street parking is available.

As I typed I also walked into Kanza Park Business Offices and spoke with two different companies. Both said parking will be allowed. This is over another 50 spaces which takes the total to over 100 spaces with a one block walk. The tournament will cap at 90 players leaving an excess of parking.

Regarding the playground, a throw will really have to be errant on the magnitude of hitting the skateboarders on hole 1 at Rosedale, but just to be certain we will paint an OB line along the fairway.

Regarding the walking path, personally the most I've ever seen was about 6 people total. Both players and walkers will need to be courteous of each other as any other day. The path and course was approved by the city prior to Kanza Krush being thought of.

I am told by Ryan Sipple, local player, resident, worker in Ottawa and individual that runs Franklin County DG FACEBOOK page, that this will be at least the third tournament at Kanza that he is aware of.

I was thinking of going Scott. Have not made up my mind.

--Nevermind, I can't go.

Register by April 9, and Ams will receive a bonus pack item.  I'm waiting for the Innova order to be delivered before I confirm what it is.

The bonus item was going to be a cotton Innova short sleeve t-shirt.

Well....this is what I received in my TD box:

Small - 4
Large - 33
X-Large - 35
XX-Large - 13

They must think we are very large people to not include any Mediums and over 55% is XL or larger.

So, if I don't have your size (pretty much those that wear medium), I'll have a $10 gift certificate for you towards any other shirt or hat I have in stock.

General Banter / Re: PDGA Ratings Update
« on: March 25, 2015, 11:09:37 am »
Ratings are a double edged sword.  I prefer to play tournaments that I know will be rated vs. a non-sanctioned tournament.  I enjoy seeing my rating fluctuate.  I know on any given day, I have the ability to play 70 points above, or 70 points below my rating.  It's a baseline to start from.

The alternative - to create a course rating for each tee pad and each pin placement, while more accurate, would be nearly infinitely harder.

So, I take what information I can get, even if only partially accurate.

It would be best to register and then meet at the nature center, that's what I'm doing. I would also be up for grabbing a burger from HI-Boy's and then a rd. afterwards.

If you're registering, I'll register.  Don't they provide lunch?

My hunger for donuts is insatiable.  I prefer to call them lugnuts as they are round and help keep the spare tire on.

Is this the Nature Center south of Swope?
Should I register early?

I was particularly wanting to work at Blue Valley.  So, a group of people will meet at the N.C. and then go over to BV?
