I think Jay is in charge of that course.  He discussed some plans last night at the EC, but I'm not sure if he's got anything scheduled.  I think there's traditionally been a work day before/after the DUI, which is coming next month.

While I would be in favor of something like that occasionally, that really takes out the match play element out of the round.  For example, I watched two of KC's better players battle for tag 3 last year.  Now lets say that in my group, tags 2, 21, 35, and 70 were in play.  The two previously mentioned players may take some more risk, knowing that they're only playing each other for tag 2, and the loser would end up with 21 (or even 35 if they blew too many strokes by being aggressive).  However, if all tags are in play, then 3, 5, 9, 13, and 20 are also in play, so you'll be more conservative, maybe end up with 3 or 5, but probably with a tag better than 21.

I think it would be cool if one league a month was an "all in" league for a reshuffle.  This would be an unannounced thing, of course, therefore not allowing the good tags to sit at home 1 week a month.

Tournaments / Tournament Sponsor

I just found out that Gorilla Boy Disc Sports will be offering up 10 tournament sponsorships this year.  Gorilla Boy is a company (actully, it's one guy named Chris) that makes some pretty nice disc golf bags.  I've been carrying one now for two years, and am quite impressed.  He's a really stand up guy who has a bit of a cult following on some of the discussion boards around the web.  So if you've got a small event going on this year, and are looking for some merchandise sponsorship, you should give him a shout. 

his website is, and his email address is

you're not one of those closet ambidextrous guys, are you?

Not at all... least backhanded.

Is there room for expansion on some of the shorter holes?

    I'm trying to get all the details, but there's a league that I was a sub in in the IC/CR area when I lived in Iowa City.   One of the things about a league for any other team sport (softball, pool, bowling, etc) is that you've got to show up for consecutive weeks to compete for consecutive weeks.  So this is how the Bushwhacker's league works.

    • The league begins by doing a random draw to assign partners.  This is your partner for the entire duration of the league.
    • The league rotates between courses.  I think Bushwhackers played 6 different ones (Thomas, Jones, Shaver in CR and Turkey, Sugar, and Peninsula in IC)
    • You get assigned a handicap.  This handicap is figured on a scratch score of 50.
    • Each week, you "play" another team.  The two opposing players with the highest handicap play each other, and the two players with the lower handicaps play each other.  The handicaps determine the amount of strokes you give to the opposing player. 
    • For each "match" your team wins, you get a point.  There's a 3rd point awarded for lowest cumulative scores after handicap.
    • If your teammate cannot show up, you have to have a sub.  Subs can get a handicap like any other player by playing at least 2 rounds.  If you don't have a sub there that day, there's a makeup round on the same course on Sunday (they called it Church).  I think it would be easier if that person just forfeited their point that week.
    • At the end of the year, you add up the points, and there's your ranking.
    • There's a fee to join the league ($14), then a weekly fee ($2) plus an optional ace fund ($1).  There's also normally a side game going on for $5 that pays out that night. They play 18 weeks, which comes to a total of $50.  They give out tee shirts and mini markers for the league fee, and have CFR fund raiser discs for sale each year.

    Anyways, it's something to consider.  I would be more than happy to run a league like this if it sounds like something people would be interested in.

Well, what's the point of the destroyer if you're not throwing 250 knife hyzer shots?!    ???

Rick, are you still holding on to #1, or did someone take it from you?

There was talk about having a Blue Valley league for a while, and I think there was a weekend one before I moved to town.  I'd really like to see something like that starting again, since it's the closest "big" course to my house.

This is how we made some of our open courses in Iowa City more interesting.  With a windy Blue Valley, it would have a links look to it.

If we decided to keep a running statistics for each person in league this year (something I'm going to talk to the EC about), then we've got some statistics to use in order to help us with the A/B field.

Another consideration would be a 1 division handicapped round.

I don't know if schools are willing to invest in it, but the EDGE program is a great teaching tool for schools.

Oh, and I would donate some time.  Really, you want someone in the area that has a good deal of understanding about mechanics to be a teacher (I have understanding, I just don't practice it very well :)).

I think the web guy is going to be up in the air for right now.  I'm not sure if Sean is going to continue to do it.  There are talks of getting a Technology Panel together to head these types of things up.  That's something Rick talked to me about, so we'll see what comes of that in the next month.  Hopefully have this all settled out before the tournament season kicks off in earnest in April, and will be able to update this site with a lot more information.
