General Banter / Topeka courses updates
« on: August 15, 2014, 05:42:03 pm »
Ran into Mitch Bonjour at Lake Shawnee today.  He said that Crestview is getting an overhaul after the mowing season this fall.  All new Mach X baskets, new larger tee pads and new pins (the underground kind with a water cap).  It is running about $3K per hole.

The Crestview baskets will then be moved to replace Lake Shawnee's baskets, some of which were home made back in the 80's. 

Lake Shawnee's baskets will replace the ones at Rice Park.

Good stuff.

Course map that is of usable size would be awesome.

I'm like a PDGA rule geek.

PDGA rules must be followed in leagues just as they are in regular tournament play. The one exception allowed for league play is players of legal age may drink during rounds if the park rules allow alcohol to be consumed on the course. However, please drink in moderation since courtesy rules can be enforced to penalize unruly behavior.

Insert funny comment here.

Coke has a plant in Atlantic Ia. They sponsor the tournament in their town.

Frank Weaver hit Rosedale Down Under #9 tonight during the PDGA League.  Yahoo!

Ratings are posted. It may be Friday or Saturday before I get the normal run down done.

Oh yeah - Frank Weaver hit an Ace!  Hole 9.  Yahoo!

Frank - remember, I need your mailing address.

Will we meet up top or down in down under at hole 8

Sorry Bill, just saw this.  I tend to respond to the Facebook postings faster.

Yep.  Still down under.  Sign up by 5:45, tee off as soon as cards are ready.  I may possibly push cards out earlier as daylight is getting shorter.

Communicated with Penny earlier this week, we are planning on running the normal Wednesday Rosedale league and the PDGA league together playing down under.

Bummer, won't be able to make it tonight.  With my Lawrence league over, I'm hoping to make a couple of these before it is over though

With all of the rain this past week, is league still on tonight?  Course conditions?

Let me know your thoughts:

Remaining schedule:

8/6 - Swope - Postponed due to weather
8/13 - Rosedale Disc Golf Course DU
8/20 - Cliff Drive
8/27 - Prairie Center (prep for Old Settlers Open)
9/3 - Possible reschedule of Swope stop.

It comes down to it that this was a PDGA event.  Per PDGA rules, he qualified.  Looky here:

At the bottom of the .pdf there is a 'Pros Playing Am' division.  A Pro player with a rating less than 970 can play in Advanced in A, B, or C tier events.  They may NOT play in Am divisions for PDGA Majors (Worlds, Selinske Masters).  It does not address NT's.

There were 5 players above Chris Claring rating wise. 

I'm not sure that if I was the TD, I wouldn't have let him play (meaning I probably would have).

People are complaining about Loomis' alledged wrong interpretation of rules, but in this situation, Claring clearly was eligible to play.  I'm not defending Loomis in any way, nor am I saying Loomis had a choice if Claring played.  What I am saying is, if we are standing on a soap box complaining that we think some of the rules were not adhered to at Water Works, then we also need to stand on the same rules about which player can play in what division.  Claring was was eligible to play, so he was allowed to play.

This was not the only situation like this.  One of the individuals that tied for 1st in Recreation also tied for 1st in an Intermediate B-tier in 2013.  However, just because they won/tied in Intermediate, their rating allowed them to still compete in Recreation.  Fair, I don't know.  Legal - absolutely.  If I was the TD, I would totally allow this person to play in Rec.  Most importantly because it was legal.  Second because I view this as a situation where the person was playing above his rated division for a long time and decided for various reasons to play his actual rated division this particular time.

As info, as a Master, his rating made him ineligible for the Adv. Masters division, which is probably why he played up in the Advanced divisions along with all of the young guns.

Swope PDGA league is called off. Will try to reschedule.
