Tournaments / Re: 2015 Ice Bowl
« on: November 19, 2014, 03:01:56 PM »
Am I understanding correctly that the historical one large Rosedale Ice Bowl is not happening?

Or, is this dicussion in addition to the main Rosedale Ice Bowl event?

Dang weather.  Typically it still is in the 50's this time of year.

As far as basket settings go I moved a couple last weekend.  Intend to move a few more this weekend, hoping to have it 'set' by Sunday afternoon.  The problem can be though that several people move baskets at the course and they may get moved after I set them.  I have asked a couple of the players I know that do move them to not do so after Sunday and to spread the word to other players.

After this post, I'll update the placement post above with some new information.

Once the coordinator(s) are decided or volunteers, I would like to discuss the commercial beverage sponsor.

The problem with the old format match is that when you lose you're done. So some players are over after 10 holes.

This alternate format ensures you get to play 2 full rounds and even the third group of foursomes are still in the hunt for cash. Also this can be done in one day.

Yeah, it makes sense. If you get stuck playing with me you won't be mad that I drop you from first to last cash!
Yahoo! Nate gets it!

I was thinking of something not related to anything currently running like the team challenge.  Thinking of solo stuff.

I'm just throwing ideas around right now.

At first I was thinking $10 buy-in, Am's only, pay out in merch to top 24.

Then I thought of 2 groups of 32, one Ams, one Pros.  Pay out to 12 of each group, merch for Am, cash for Pros.  Maybe increasing buy in to $15 with a meager player pack, like a towel or something.

I was kind of gauging general interest.

I was also thinking of a course off the beaten path instead of the general KC Metro staples.

54 views and no replies.

I'm interpreting this as no interest.

Am cash or merch?

So if I plan on playing in the Rec division do I need a PDGA membership?

Either a PDGA membership, or pay the $10 PDGA non-member fee.

As info, if you pay for a PDGA membership now, it will last through the end of 2015.

From Steve Dodge, Vibram:

I love match play. It is, as far as I know, the way golf was intended when it was first created. A series of 18 head to head challenges. Unfortunately, to hold a tournament with a lot of players, stroke play became the tournament format of choice. With some noodling and some creative sessions with friends, here is a format that I believe closely echoes the original intent of golf while allowing a tournament of 64 players, all played in one day - which is how we like our tourneys up here in New England.

World Cup Format:
On each hole, for each person in your group that you score better than, you get a point. In each round, you are only competing against the other players on your card.

Round 1: 16 Foursomes
Note: I like the groups to be created randomly, but adventurous TDs can try to rank all the players and bracket them (caution: this is a great way to create dissension and bickering ;-)

Round 2: Semifinals
Four Lead Foursomes
Four 2nd Place Foursomes
Four 3rd Place Foursomes
Four 4th Place Foursomes

Round 3: Finals
The winners of each of the four lead foursomes play a final Quasi-Match Play round.

Order of top 24 players, who get a payout.
1st-4th: Order of finish in Round 3 Finals
5th-8th: Finished in 2nd place from one of the four lead foursomes in Rd2
9th-12th: Won one of the 2nd Place Foursomes in Rd2
13th-24th: 3rd place in lead foursome, 2nd place in 2nd foursome, 1st place in 3rd foursome

Were you carrying a Roadrunner?  I hear Coyotes like Roadrunners...a LOT.

I'm intending to come over Sunday and buy one then. I'm presuming there will be people that want to tee off 1-1:30

I'll be there for the 9am

If someone wants to play Centennial this weekend, or actually anytime, let me know.

Rob Martin
Seven eight 5. 7 six 4 - two 2 twenty-nine.

texts are fine

If you haven't played Centennial, take a map.  If you look at it on a hole-by-hole basis, it is one of my favorites.  However, there is ZERO signage, the paint markings on the tees are rubbed off, and most of the numbers on the baskets are not legible.


Ignore the hole lengths on the map, some are significantly wrong.

Regarding pin placements:

Centennial is handled very differently then any course in the KC Metro area.  Baskets are moved frequently by a committee.  I know a few of them by name, but intend to get a better grip on this soon.

This is what I hope it will be:

These are very tentative.

Typical OBs in red  Intend for any water to be casual.  If you land in it, either play from the water, or directly behind it on the 'line of play'.

Final Hole layout, 11/21.  Pins were set today.  There is a possibility they will get moved.  I'll check them again Saturday, 11/22 and Friday, 11/28

1. Long right - I personally think this is the hardest pin on the course.
2. New long middle placement.
3. Long.  The classic position.
4. Middle left on incline - I just like this one.  You have to shoot through the tree gap
5. New long middle placement near hotel and surrounded by short trees.
6. Short - Ace run (kind of) and helps from people on 3 & 7 from getting hit on up shots. OB:Playground. (This would be a really, really long shot) Hotel parking lot
7. Long across creek
8. Long right
9. Long Straight inbetween tree and telephone pole. OB: Sidewalk left
10. New tree stump placement OB: Sidewalk left
11. Straight - mostly likely to be aced.  Updated 11/19 OB: Sidewalk left.  In the woods behind basket there is an old barbed wire fence.  If you are over the fence you are OB. If you are up against it, or under it (part of your disc is on the fairway side, you are safe.
12. Long left OB Sidewalk left, sidewalk beyond basket, sidewalk right
13. B placement.  B is the first one across the creek what most people think of as the normal placement. OB - Inside the skate park
14. Long left. OB: Shelter, any part of it including the wood deck on or under.
15. Middle just across the creek.
16. Long on top of plateau  OB, Parking lot long, sidewalk right
17. Short  Sidewalk left
18. Middle.  I really like the long pin in the trees but this inhibits speed of play on Hole 1. Sidewalk left

Regarding moving them between rounds? It depends on how much help I have and the number of players.  The more help and players there are, the higher possibility there could be some movement.
