Hey - I'm back to having every other Friday off.

Suggestions for next week:

Just got done playing Atchinson Jackson Park today.  This is the time of year you want to play that park before grass is an issue.

Same for Riverfront Park in Lawrence, Perry Lake, and Pomona Lake.

General Banter / Saturday Round, 4/5/14?
« on: April 04, 2014, 10:26:33 am »
Any interest in a round Saturday west of KC?  Would consider Perry, Lawrence, Topeka, Ottawa, Pomona.

Need to be back home by 5:30, so like to tee off no later than 12:30 or 1.  AM ok.


11 came out this first evening of Wandering Wednesday and dodged the rain that never came.  We played Wyandotte Co which was still set at Kan-U-Wyco settings without the OB.  Par 60.

Open – Paid USD
Kevin Zane – 59, $10
Jon Thomas – 62, $2
Carl Pledger – 64
Chris Cardinal – 71

Ams – Pay out as KC Kash
Harold Berciunas – 66, $11
Heath Kinton – 68, $4
Joe Teater – 68, $4
Duane Waldman – 68, $4
Rob Martin – 68, $3
Chris Connell – 71
Steve Keithley - 73

9 in for Ace Fund.  Now up to $109

Looks like Bonner Springs got a lot of rain.  One website said 0.97 inches, while another said 0.25.

From now until 7pm, the chances of additional rain is 10%, 20% by 8, 40% by 9.

I'm planning on still being out there.  We'll go as long as it is not lightning or torrentially raining while we are there.  I can handle a light rain.

I'll send cards of 3 off as soon as people are availabe to try to get the rounds in.  It may be helpful to text me your number so if we do have it call it off during the round I can get ahold of you if you are on the other side of the park.

My number is 7   8   5, seven sixty-four, two two two 9.

Camping at the lake is free and they have free wifi

Beginners / Re: New Players League - Monday's
« on: March 26, 2014, 02:15:16 pm »
Just a question in general for a new player:

Should I join the Beginner's League at Rosedale? I've been playing casually for almost 1 year, mostly at SMP. Kan-U-Wyco was my first tournament (played Rec) after joining the PDGA. I am certainly joining KCFDC this weekend, but unsure of where to join (online, DD, or Disc World?).

I want to join the league at SMP, but since my average is +6 at best to +10 typically, I'm not confident enough to play. My schedule favors the PDGA league that I saw Rob M. getting set up. So, I could join that as well.
Am I jumping the gun, never playing league, and wanting to join in? Or should I get more experience first? Paying in and coming in dead last isnt a problem for me. I just want to improve and read that playing against better players is the fatest way to learn.

Marc - the term 'leagues' is a bit misleading.  It's not like a bowling league where you are commited to play the entire session.  It would be better to call our leageus 'minis' as in an one round 'mini' tournament.  You can play just once if you want.  Some leagues do run incentives to have you play more often, but it is not a requirement.  You don't need to pre-register or anything.  It is ok to just show up once, twice, every other week, once a month, whatever.

If you are planning on joining the club, personally, I would do so at one of the stores.  That's my opinion though.

I've been throwing around the idea of the next PDGA round, if we do one, is to break it up into Open, Advanced (like it currently is) and Rec where Rec would cost $2.  $1 for the PDGA, $1 for the club, and would not have a payout.  This would help new players play in more league (mini-tournament) settings without paying someone else $5 every week just to play.  Also, by having a non-payment Rec division, it would be unduly pillaged by players that should be playing in a higher division.  This is just an idea though and has not been vetted by the BoD.

This brings up a point I may have overlooked.

Here are the actual FAQ's from the PDGA (scroll down to Leagues):

It is possible for a player to start off as an Am, then move to Open half way through.  Of course, this would affect your ability to either get a super freakin' sweet misprint / used disc, or the ability to avoid the infamous orange Pro-D Hawk (no offense to any KU or Iowa Hawks).

Can you play in more than one division during the league season?
Yes. Players may play in a different division they are eligible for as they prefer each week. That's one reason why every player must play the same tees and course on a specific league day so ratings are calculated properly.

Also - payouts and PDGA reporting do not necessarily need to be aligned. 

A player can have the reporting of their scores to the PDGA be as an Am, yet play as a Pro for cash.  An Am can receive cash in a league and not jeopardize their Am status. 

As an example:

Jimmy '3-Thumbs' Taylor has a rating of 942.  Per PDGA ratings, he can play Amateur.  He wishes to keep his Am status because he is bent on winning the triple crown of Ams (KCWO Advanced, PDGA Am Worlds, and Midwest Am Champs - what other 3 were you thinking of?).  However, he really believes he can kick some serious rear and take a few names while he is at it and actually cash in Open.  Besides, he has enough plastic and KC Kash is not his thing.

So - he plays Open for the KCFDC portion, yet has his scores posted as an Am to retain Am status and gain Am points.

For the super duper aforementioned and highly coveted misprint / used discs, since his reporting is Am, he is in the Am part of that (the two misprintted Kan-U-Wyco Trespasses and not the used KC Roc and sweet orange Pro-D Hawk).

(and yes I'm bored out of my mind at work).

Do you mind moving me to open when you get a chance?  Steve - 46929

Will do.
