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.

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.

Project Blue River Rescue
Date: March 28, 2015
Time: 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are needed to clean up the Blue River. Dedicated sites are available for groups. T-shirts, work gloves, tools, and trash bags will be provided. Donuts and coffee will be available at sign-in and volunteers will meet back at Lakeside Nature Center for lunch at noon.

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?

Not a resident Rob just a concerned disc golfer who lives in the area.

I appreciate your sincere concern. Kudos

Ah, it is Steve Stansberry! Sorry, I didn't recognize your handle. The different tees really are utilized at various tournaments, even at worlds. As long as there are 3 Propogators it's all good. Hope you can make more of Maverick's DG tournaments. My goal is cheap tournaments on new courses. Payouts might be lower, but I'm not a huge company.

Hope you understand.  It's about the game, right?!


Hey Dan Howard, here is your contact:

Let me know what Doug has to say.

Let me know what they say. I'm curious. Thanks Dan

If you need their email address, let me know. I'll share it with you.

Steve, et al,

This is a great discussion on ratings. I actually have spent quite a bit of time researching on how they work. You could say I'm a rating geek.

For more information, I would recommend reading this:

For further clarification, if you email Chuck Kennedy with the PDGA, he is really good at explaining things and replying pretty quickly. After emailing him personally and reading various commentaries he has written, he strikes me as being very intelligent on the subject matter.

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.
