Perspective: World Record BH throw is a bit more than 45' past #13 LONG.   :o
that hole is totally eagle-able.

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?

What about an abbreviated rotating KS league? So instead of playing 10 different courses, just pick 3 and rotate between them?

SMP, Lakeside, Wyco or something like that.
That's an idea.  I'm intending to go to next week's BOD meeting to discuss.

@ Peter - If you want to run a PDGA at SMP - please do.  I was getting the interpretation that you were not really wanting to.

@ Steve.  That is very interesting.  And explains a lot, like how I got a 689 rated round when I previous worst rated round was about 780.  It might possibly have to do with how Jack entered the numbers - if he adjusted the Par or not, etc.  I've had a couple of emails with Chuck Kennedy about ratings and this would be a good one to ask.

As far as ratings go - I'm rated 842.  Which is my highest ever after starting at 824 2 -years ago.  I don't need ratings, I just find them interesting.  Same thing with points.  For me, once I get past 200, it doesn't matter because I'm guaranteed an invite to Am Worlds as it is currently set up.

Currently, this is the way I see it.

My first choice is to have one of the permanent leagues run a 10-week PDGA league. 

Either Cliff or Olathe on Monday
Rosie or Young on Wednesday
move WyCo to Monday or Wednesday.

I am volunteering to run the PDGA side of any of these options.  I could possibly consider running WyCo for the rest of the year on Monday or Wednesday - but I'm not 100% there yet.

If one of these options do not work, my next choice will be to run a Wednesday travelling league. 

Tentatively, my idea would be to start Wednesday, April 2 - running 9 weeks straight through May 28 with the 10th 'week' actually being a Saturday afternoon round at Perry on the 5/24.  This is just my idea so far because I'm bored at work and excited about sanctioned leagues.

Again - my first choice would be not to start something new, but to work with what we already have.

I'm starting to think this is a good time to still gather ideas and then attend the BOD meeting March 12 (?) with proposals.

Jack - maybe we could run 9 weeks on a KCFDC course and then the final 10th week at Perry.  We may have to adjust the time for the finale.  I would love to see (how bad) my rating would be at Perry.

More thoughts -

For the PDGA league to actually have a decent rating (which the only reason for having a PDGA league is for rating and points) is that at least 3 (?) Propogators must play.

Good information here (scroll down to Leagues):

Here are a couple FAQ's that I think are particularly helpful

Do players get PDGA ratings from league rounds? Yes. Current PDGA members will earn ratings and even non-members will earn them even though they won't be able to see their official ratings until they join or renew. Players will see preview (unofficial) ratings each week when the TD posts the scores online just like regular tournaments.

If some weeks don't display preview ratings, it's likely not enough players entered that week with established ratings (propagators) over 799. At least 5 propagators are required to produce preview ratings. The good news is that once the league report is submitted to the PDGA, players will still receive official ratings for any of the weeks they couldn't see preview ratings.

Do players earn PDGA points?
Yes. Players will earn PDGA points based on how many players they tied or beat in their division during each week of play.  League points are 1/2 the amount of points of a C-Tier tournament

You don't have to be a PDGA member to play.
You would have to pay the $1/round PDGA fee to play in this league regardless of PDGA membership status.

So it would be normal KCFDC fee structure + $1 PDGA fee.
