WYCO / (OLD INFORMATION) 2014 WYCO League information
« on: March 13, 2014, 01:34:51 PM »
***********  Not to confuse anyone new on the WyCo league, the information in this thread is no longer valid.  It is being retained for historical purposes  ************

At the BOD meeting last night, the Spring PDGA League was discussed.  It was decided to move WyCo league to Wednesday nights.  This would have the least impact on other leagues and allow for continuity through the season.  I've volunteered to run WyCo league from April until the end of August at a minimum.  If things are still going well, I'll continue through the remainder of the season.

WyCo league will start the first Wednesday of April, April 2. 

The PDGA 10-week league will start April 16.  This delayed start is so we can capture the last Wednesday before the Wide Open in the league format, June 18th.  I'm hoping we get some pro's out there to test the course prior to the tournament.

I have an idea on how I would like to do pin placements.  For the first PDGA date, April 16, I would like to have all 18 holes set on their easiest pins.  Over the 10-week period, we would move 2-3 baskets making it progressively harder until June 18th is set for the Wyandotte KCWO Gold setting.

I'll post more information as we get closer.

One of the more popular score card error - almost cost Will Schusterick $1,100 (1st place difference from 2nd place)

A non-score is the same as a wrong score when turned in.

Schusterick said he counted the card, as did everybody else in the group. He then took the card to hand in – but didn’t think about putting the final score down. The scores were right, but the 43 was not written down.

“It’s completely my fault,” he said. “I didn’t write it down. The scorecard added up right, I just didn’t physically write the 43. I handed it in. I didn’t even think about writing it down.

“I had no idea,” he said. “Then they showed me the scorecard. I didn’t say a word. I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t argue it. It’s the rule.”

Just like that, his two-stroke victory was gone. Add to that the $3,700 top prize, which was also now in jeopardy.

I'm aware of at least two different rounds getting the +2 this past weekend because of a wrong score.

Sometimes I buy a disc because it has Slayer written on it.

Sometimes I buy a disc to see how it sinks.

For Spring, is this going to be the schedule?

League will be rotating monthly, not weekly.

League will be as follows:

Lakeside Hills in April, June and August
Prairie Center in May, July and finishing the season in September.

My only concern for painted OB is that it is in play for both Sat and Sun.  Is this a valid concern or am I being stooopid?

Ah - this is why it was cut down.  Someone forgot to put a ribbon around it that said, "Do Not Cut".  See, John Houck and Chuck Kennedy really are masters of course design.

Steve, PDGA league sanctioning is $25 upfront.

From the $1 collected per person per day, $0.50 goes to PDGA.  The rest goes to the TD to decide.  I was going to use this $0.50 to pay me back the $25 upfront bill I would pay.  If more than $25 is collected from the remaining $0.50, it would depend on how much i left over.  If it is a few bucks, I would just keep it to cover printing costs, etc.  If it is a lot left over, then I would discuss with those that came the most often if we would grill some burgers, have a bonus payout, use it to fund a second 10-week session. 

Regarding Tuesdays, I can't commit to coming to those.  I would come, but just on an irregular day depending if I had to pick up my daughter from fencing (yeah - my 15 yr old daughter fences - how cool is that!).

If this ends up being a Monday rotating, we would have to work some issues out.  For instance, if we went to PC when they were there, my suggestion would be we would join their format and mix players.  I would collect the $1 from the travelers for PDGA, I would let (presumming Tom) collect the KCFDC monies.  Same thing if it was travelling on Wed and we stopped at Rosie.

If Peter wants to sanction a PDGA at SMP on Tuesdays, I think that would be great.  Unfortunately I cannot run it, so I'm not intereted in fronting the $25 registration fee.

I had a mentor awhile back tell me, 'Never underestimate your ability to be misundersood'.

$5 for everybody.
If you are a member, you get a $1 discount - so it's $4.
If you want an Ace fund, then it's +$1, back up to $5.

Semantics.  You could also say, $4 for everybody, non-members have to pay $1 extra for $5.  But the 'discount' sounds better then the 'non-member' fee.

For this PDGA League, costs would be:

KCFDC Members
With Ace Fund - $6
Without Ace Fund - $5

Non-KCFDC Members
With Ace fund - $7
Without Ace fund - $6

Occurred to me that not everyone would know league costs.

They are:

-$1 discount if KCFDC member
+$1 Ace Fund - optional.

PDGA league would be $1 more.

League payouts are provided here:

Leagues / RESULTS: Spring PDGA League format poll
« on: March 06, 2014, 09:57:59 AM »
I would like to gather interest and opinion regarding a possible PDGA Spring league.  It would run approximately April & May.  Depending on the days/ dates, it may run into June as well.

This is for informational purposes only.  The top choice may not necessarily be the one chosen (if any).  Besides what players would like, it would need to be approved by the BOD and would depend on the perceived impacts on other club leagues.

You can vote twice.  If you have one choice this is strongly favored over the second choice, please leave a comment explaining why.

The fee structure would stay the same as normal KCFDC leagues except for the additional $1 PDGA fee.  Basically, whatever you used to pay (member vs. non-member, ace fund, etc.), add $1.

From the few videos I've watched of JohnE, I was impressed.

While this blog is one of the most painful to read (regarding grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.)  I'm highly interested in watching to see how he does this coming year.  It would be awesome to watch him win a NT or Major.

BTW - anybody now what the deal is with the Capital E?
