Found and Lost / Guess who's got Slant's Roc?
« on: June 02, 2010, 11:45:23 PM »
I was playing some guys down under, and they found your Roc in a tree off to the right of #5.  I can either get it to you at league sometime (WyCo maybe?) or drop it off at DGW.

General Banter / 2010 MO-Kan Points Series - Session 2 - Cancelled
« on: June 02, 2010, 01:47:52 PM »
The next session of the traveling points series won't start until the 1st full week in July, but I wanted to let people know of the changes I'll be making to the points series:

  • Change the the Handicap:  This time, we'll use a different format.  Currently, I take your player rating (which is an average of all your rounds), and use that to figure your handicap.  Unfortunately, there's a large disparity in the number of strokes given to players in the 800 and below range.  To make the league fair to everyone from a 600 rated player to a 1050 rated player, I'll be incorporating a new formula:  I'll take your top 5 rounds from your last 10 rounds, average those together, and use that as your rating.  For each 9 points you're under 1000, you'll get a stroke.
  • Each week we'll be awarding the same number of points.  We've had some folks who haven't made out too well in the points count even though they've attended a lot of minis.  So if there are 20 people playing next session, and only 1 person shows up for said mini, they'll get 21 points.

Here's the schedule and registration form for the 2nd session:

Found and Lost / Lost Wallet
« on: June 01, 2010, 09:02:34 AM »
My wallet was lost at Rosedale Park yesterday.  Witnesses said they saw it on the ground next to my car.  I assume it was in my lap when I got out and I didn't realize it.  If anyone has any information on it, or would care to return it, please call me at 870-834-4569.

Swope / Swope "Gold" Holes
« on: May 05, 2010, 09:55:24 AM »
Rick is thinking of using some form of Swope Gold for the Wide Open this year, and I wanted to get some thoughts from people who've played it.  I was looking online at the '07 Swope Gold course, and it looks like #1 was played from tee 3 to hole 1, then #2 was played from tee 4 to hole 5.  After that, there were 3 temporary holes, then went back to tee 6 to follow the course as normally played.

I'm looking to remove holes #5 (play from tee 4 to hole 5) as well as holes 7 and 8.  I was considering 2 temporary holes after hole #4, and a temporary after #15 on the piece of land in the southeast corner.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Found and Lost / Lost Wallet at Swope
« on: April 19, 2010, 02:06:11 PM »
I was contacted via email by the wife of Greg Nerman.  She tells me that he lost his wallet at Swope, and talked to some disc golf regulars.  They said that they had found the wallet, and had given it to me.  This has not been the case, so if you have any knowledge to the whereabouts of this, please contact me.

General Banter / 2010 MO-Kan Points Series - Session 1
« on: March 25, 2010, 08:18:45 PM »
Similar to the points league I ran at Swope last year, I'm going to run a "traveling" league of sort.  You simply pay the league fee up front, and continue to play the standard mini rounds.  Here are the details.
  • This will be a handicapped league.  Handicap will be based on rating, not on score.  So so shooting a 54 (950 rated) at Swope has the same handicap weight as a 62 (950 rated) at WyCo.  I have the spreadsheet to calculate round ratings, and will continue to do it this year.  Strokes will be calculated to the nearest stroke.
  • The handicap formula will be .8 * [ (1000 - rating) / 9 ].  This means that if you under a 1000 player rating you will have strokes subtracted from your score, and if you have over a 1000 player rating, you will have strokes added to your score.
  • The league will run from the beginning of May to the end of June.
  • Prior to the league season, each participant must form a KCFDC player rating by playing in at least 3 leagues. 
  • The cost the play in the league is $30.  This must be paid up front.
  • Each week, 2 current "mini" leagues will be chosen.  For example, league could be at Cliff Drive and WyCo that week.  Those will be the only 2 opportunities to play for points that week.
  • The participants will play in the regular mini.  I will handicap adjust each of the league player's score, and give each participant a point for finishing the round, and a point for each person IN THE POINTS SERIES they beat OR tie.
  • 2 of the 16 leagues will be double points leagues.  While not mandatory to attend, it would behoove you to do so.  The double points league nights will be on the 2 least established league courses:  Legacy Park on the 21st of May, and Shawnee Mission Park on the 29th of June.
  • Each participant can keep their 10 best scores.  If you don't have 10 scores, then what you do have will be used.  If you have more than 10 scores, only your top 10 will be used.
  • At the end of the league, each person's best 10 scores will be summed.  The total of all the points in play will be summed, and the pool will be divided by this total.  This ensures that everyone will be paid out something.

An example of the point distribution for a night
Juliana shoots a 55 with a handicap of 5.  Her score is 50.  She gets 5 points.
Kenny shoots a 60 with a handicap of 3.  His score is 57. He gets 4 points.
Barry shoots a 54 with a handicap of -3.  His score is 57. He gets 4 points.
Nikko shoots a 58 with a handicap of 0.  His score is 58.  He gets 2 points.
Dave DNFs.  He gets no points.

An example of the purse payout
Juliana - 75 points
Kenny - 50 points
Barry - 40 points
Nikko - 40 points
Dave - 20 points

Total - 225 points

Total purse - $1000
Total purse / total points = 1000 / 225 = 4.44 dollars /point

Juliana - $333
Kenny - $222
Barry - $177.60
Nikko - $177.60
Dave - $88.80

General Banter / KCFDC League Ratings for 2010 - On Hiatus for a while

Swope / Swope Weekly Minis - starting on March 16th

I stole most of this from Drew's Cliff post...

New this year:

Players choosing to play in the Open division will pay $7 entry fee.  Others remain $5.
Am divisions pay out plastic, all others pay out cash.
(4) players must be paid up to have an official league.
Please bring any beverages to the course in either aluminum or plastic containers.  NO GLASS

As always:

KCFDC members receive $1 off their entry fee.
Optional - $1 to become eligible to receive the ace fund.  (Rollover from last year - $368)

One more thing:

After finding out last year it is quite difficult to both run league and go through my busiest time of the year (April-June), I won't be available to run league until July.  I have emailed a couple people about stepping up, but if you feel you'd like to give something back to the club and help us facilitate our leagues, we would be glad to have you.

I had just put it in the bag, and test threw it on #8.  It's Yellow, but doesn't have any contact info on it.  I feel sorry for the rec player who picked it up, but can't figure out why it won't fly more than 200' before crashing into the ground.
