Steve Stransberry or Strawberry? 

Both the PDGA Am Worlds and the PDGA Pro Worlds used long and short tee pads both in 2013 and 2014. It does work. It will be ok.

 Thanks.

Nice to meet you Steve. As long as there are a minimum of three Propogators, the PDGA ratings will be rated correctly per Chuck Kennedy, the main creator of the PDGA rating system. For greater detail on how the work, I would recommend contacting the PDGA rating committee. As far as the flow goes, for this course, having different tee pads will help the flow of play, give higher divisions greater challenges, while encouraging lower divisions with a more realistic experience for their playing level.  Thanks for asking.

Yes Dan, please contact the City of Ottawa. By the way, are you a resident?  Just asking because I have two Ottawa residents plus an employee of the Franklin County Convention and Visitors Bureau that is working with me on the tournament.

Steve the Quiz Berry - have we met?  What's your real name?  Mine is Rob Martin.

My apologies, is it not OK for me to post an A-tier here? If it's not, I'll happily delete the post. Thanks.

No, perfectly fine in all honesty.  Don't let me stop you.  I lived in Chi-Town for years, and always had to drive down there to see Gary to play.  Love the area, but the drive is a killer, and the notion that there is an A-Tier closer (PDGA's fault not yours) is always something strikes me odd. 

There are plenty of people who may opt for this, so this is WAY more than appropriate to post it in here.

As Kevin indicated it is better to post it here than to delete it.

I hope the event is a big success I really do.  I just wish it wasn't on a weekend that has always been Des Moines weekend.  I am looking for an excuse to get back up there to visit and play, and I don't wanna go over to IN and Lemon Lake to play.

I haven't played this Canyon's course yet, maybe plan on playing it on my way to K-Zoo this summer, so it is very informative, regardless of this smart-ass comment! 

:-D

No disrespect meant, but sarcasm is often lost on me in the rooms, in person not so much!

Keeping for reference.

We will have alternate tee pads.  Short for Junior, Rec, Rec Women, Int. Women and maybe Adv. Grandmaster.  Long for others.

We "AIN'T" wimps RoB. AdvGM can play longs.   ;)

Heehee.  I know, most AdvGM can kick my rear (along with Jack kicking my rear when he can find a chance to). 

I see DD Emporia sometimes puts GM's on short pads.  I'm open to discussion.

22
Really Jack?  You must stalk me just to bust my rear.

The actual parking lot at BV is small.  However people park in the street.

The parking lots at Ottawa, Lawrence, and Perry are small, however people park in the street.  I was addressing the issue of very limited parking brought up by others.

Thank you for your concern.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Thanks!

As always Jack, I'm following protocol.  It has been submitted to the BOD.  Parking will be handled just like it is with all the other tournaments at Blue Valley including KCWO, City of Fountains, Club Championships, etc.

Thank you for your concern and have a great weekend.

TENTATIVE Tee Pad locations

1-5 Normal tee area for both
6 - Short tee is normal, Long tee will be marked area from walking path.
7 - Normal for both
8 - Short tee is normal, Long tee will be marked area from walking path.
9 - 13 Normal for both
14 - Normal tee area  is Long setting, Drop Zone near Mando will be the Short setting.
15 - 16 Normal for both
17 -TBD
18 - TBD but will probably move tee for both to the left side of the walking path.  Not sure yet.

Yes, I cleared it with the city.  That is always my first step.

Most courses have limited parking that cannot accomodate a full tourney.  Centennial Lawrence, Longview Perry, Blue Valley KCMO for example.  We'll deal with it.

Tee pads are taking care of by utilizing flags and allowing people to tee from grass besides the tee pad or behind tee pad.  Personally, I think the pads are no big deal when you look at the size comparred to the amount of space you have when you are driving from a lye in a fairway (directly behind your disc / marker, 11", etc.)  If it is really bothersome, you can use the marked natural pad.

We will have alternate tee pads.  Short for Junior, Rec, Rec Women, Int. Women and maybe Adv. Grandmaster.  Long for others.  Some of the long tees will be the walking trail.  It is Ottawa, not Central Park.  It isn't that busy.

Players and pedestrians will need to be careful regarding each other as with any tournament.  Both can manage.  It will be OK.

Tournaments I intend to run will not be 'normal' tournaments on normal courses using the same ol', same ol'.  Grow the sport by providing alternate options to the same old thing.  Some will like it, others won't.  Vanilla and chocolate options.

Defiance Beer returns as a sponsor.  Yum.

Thank you.

11/14 - Big Blue Monster - Blue Valley, KC, MO - 1 rounder of all 27 holes in long positions.

Big Blue set long.  Inbetween Hole 1 and Hole 2, you detour and play Baby Jr. Blue's 9 holes starting at Junior #2.  2-9, then 1, then back to Big Blue #2.  Tee off will be later say noon or 1pm.

11/21 - Riverfront Round and Round - 1 rounder, 27 holes at Riverfront Lawrence, KS

If you are familiar with Riverfront Lawrence, it is 9 tees with 18 baskets.  You actually play the circle twice from each tee - first time to one basket, next time to other basket.  This would be that format, plus a third lap where we would play the hardest basket for each hole for a total of 27 holes.  Field would be limited to 45 players.

For ties, it only applies to the card you are on, because you are only competing against your card.  So ties across different cards don't matter.

From the Vibram thread, this is what Steve Dodge suggested:

Quote
Hi Chuck and Jason, tie breakers are something that would need to be worked out. Great points! In my opinion, in this format, the way to break ties would be head to head scoring.

For example, let's presume Jim and John tied with 16 points and Ed and Larry tied with 12 points on a given card. To break the ties I would see who won more holes head to head between Jim and John. And then I would do this also for Ed and Larry.

If they are still tied after that, I would do a one throw CTP on the hole that they started on. In my pragmatic opinion, if two people are tied after 18 holes and they beat each other on the same number of holes, then whoever advances is basically a coin toss (they are equally matched!) and a CTP is a fine way to break the tie.

That is one idea.  Another idea could be:

Quote
I would suggest it is a one hole playoff.  If you tie on that hole, it is then CTP to the next hole and you're done.

I like the One Hole playoff myself.  It may affect how people strategize if they think that Hole #6 may come back in to consideration if we tie.  I would like it to be, 'this hole matters only for this hole'.  After that, it doesn't matter any more.  If we tie, we play one additional hole, becaue it is a new hole and it is mano e mano.  How I do my upshot, or run a put, etc., is for this hole only.  I like that and I believe lends itself more to the Match Play feel.
