Tournaments / Re: Thomas Park Open - Salina, KS Aug 8th
« on: August 10, 2015, 02:36:32 pm »
Results have just been posted.  Dick, doesn't show you even played.  WTF?

67 people played, pretty decent really.


Paying for the staff time, and the work etc.... of each I would say you have about 100-150 man hours, let's say we pay them a nominal wage of $15 (which is more than they pay)=$2250, leaving about $1500 profit to the business to run an event for 3 days.  Trying to pay a staff on top of the already paying information leaves no profit and hence no reason to run events if you pay a staff.

Holy cow...I agree with Jack on something.  It's ok for people to make a little bit of money (not a killing, but worth their time for the work they do) running a tournament in KC on KCFDC courses.

I know I have yet to make $10 an hour for any tournament I have run to date.  On a couple of them it was down in the $3-4 per hour range for the time I put in.

We will be playing the Swope MAC layout tomorrow, 8/10. Sign up at the club house starting at 5:30. May push cards out a little early to get ahead of the sunset. Last card will be 5:50.

I am not a Sarah fan.  It's just a personality thing. I wanted Paige or Val to win from the get go (actually wanted Des Reading but that's not going to happen). However, I truly feel very sorry about what happened to Sarah. It is very tragic and I would hate to be in any one of those top FPO players shoes.

Rosedale was terrible today. Hole 17 was to my knees.

I knew he was more or less from Abilene. Just thought it was a neat picture.

Notice the Abilene on Ike's hat?

Eisenhower State Park, aka Melvern Lake

Two rounds of 18 holes.




Eisenhower / Melvern is more open than wooded, but there are some definite wood holes and one particular hole (15) where you drive off a hill (cliff) over water to reach the other side.  There is some landing area if you want to set up first.

This is a Kansas state park, park entrance fee is required.  There is also quite a bit of camping available from tent areas to RV's, to cabins and yurts.  They even have facilities for horse camping.  Yes, you can bring your horse to camp with you.

Park Fee schedule:

$7-19?/night camping based on how many utilities you want and that 10/3/15 is two days after the 'Off Season' rates kick in.

I will be camping at Maime's Cabin near hole 15 for sure Friday night and maybe Saturday night too.  Check in will be there at the cabin 8:30 - 9:00 am Saturday morning.

I wasn't even there. First tournament I ever missed because I *enjoyed*[?] the players party too much the night before.  :-X. Won't make that mistake this year.

Out of curiosity, did the rain affect the rating?

From PDGA FAQ page about ratings:

Are inclement weather or tournament pressure accounted for in the ratings?
Yes. The weather and tournament pressure are automatically taken into account resulting from the typically higher scores propagators shoot in tougher conditions. These higher scores thrown by propagators will produce higher ratings for the same score on the same course layout compared with rounds played in milder conditions and recreational play.

Ratings for last night are done. It was a rough night for some players.
