Mark, I've just been busy with other things.  Life happens.  Anyway, I'll most likely be there this Friday.

Huge THANK YOU to the Kansas City Wide Open Tournament Director, Dick Parker, for all his volunteer hours to make this, the highest attended, world class event, KCWO ever.  WELL DONE, Sir!!!

Don't mean to dowse the fire of excitement for gold layout next Tuesday.  But... there is little chance all the rope/string OB will be setup in time for league, if they are waiting on a fresh mow Monday, instead of setting it up this weekend. It could happen if Chris pre-flags the OB right after the mow, has several volunteers helping and they plan on working on it Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon.  Gold pin layout will be there. It just won't have all the added OB.

Better yet.

No Lat64CAMO?  It's the KCWIDEOPEN for goodness sake.  Since the players pack may be of less subsistance compared to DD GBO, ante~ up!!!


Better yet, rather than playing disc golf tournaments for the stuff, don't. 

Instead of getting what an event organizer chooses to hand out to you, for your entry fee, go to the disc golf retailers and buy the stuff directly from them.  You'll get exactly what you want and will actually save money doing so.

Tournaments / Re: East Vs. West 2015
« on: June 08, 2015, 09:57:14 am »
I like the idea of changing the Saturday Round next year to Best Shot Doubles.  That way you get to play a full round on day one, and it leaves the quicker Alt. Shot Round for Day 2, when you are playing 2 rounds on the same day.  If nobody has any objections, then the East side can host Best shot Doubles next year on Saturday.

After listening to the reasoning for this proposed change, I think it's the right move, as well.  It really would make the event flow smoother and be less time constrained on Sunday. Officially, we should allow the 2016 Captains and next year's event director make the final call for that change. 

That said, I am passing the reigns of the Team Challenge over to the club. The KCFCD BoD will select an event director each year going forward.  I will be posting a list of responsibilities for the TD before 2016.  It really isn't a difficult event to run.  So if you're interested in running the Team Challenge, please let someone on the BoD know.

Thanks to all of you that have embraced the Team Challenge and elevated it to an annually anticipated event of friendly but fierce competition.

Cheers,

Tracy

Rained heavy prior to the round. But by start time the rain had stopped and weather was excellent for the first round of the Kansas City Team Challenge. 

Anthony Martella had the shot of the day on hole #1 (10th hole of this match) by bombing in his teams 2nd shot from near the pond for a 2 to win the hole.

Results of round 1:

1 - (W) Bobby V. / Kevin Z. over(E) Dave V. / Jamie B.5&3
2 - (W) Peter B. / Justin S.over(E) Jamie L. / Bowen S.1up

WYCO / Re: league on tonight, 5/29/15?
« on: May 29, 2015, 12:54:48 pm »
I missed last week because of an emergency.  I'll miss this week for my sons soccer game.  Probably won't be there next week either; in preparation for the Team Challenge.

General Banter / Re: PDGA Ratings Update
« on: March 25, 2015, 11:32:01 am »
I think those official ratings are dropping a lot more because the pools are being combined when they become official.  SMP Frostbreaker for example:  The pro/adv pool is being lumped in with the Int/rec pool, that played on 2 different days; one being 50 degrees and the other 0 degree wind chill.  I believe that is why ratings dropped 20 points.  Wyco and Rosie will do the same.  Happened last year the same way.

This *shouldn't* happen, as each is a separately registered event.   But who knows, maybe the events are submitted together?  (I don't think it's possible). 

Anyway, I suggest not to put too much faith in the ratings system.  But you're free to believe if you must. 

As mentioned already, a more accurate way to get a handicap would be to implement a hole by hole, placement by placement rating system.  I sort of do this every time I play at Wyco so I can compare one round to another, no matter where the pins are set. But to do it on a full scale across all courses everywhere would be a mammoth undertaking. First to determine accurate understandable standards. Then to educate local course coordinators to properly evaluate each hole/placement. Then a system of how to report individual rounds and calculate their handicap would have to be put in place.  Not infinitely impossible, but unlikely to get done.

I have been saying this since its inception. The system is intuitively broken; basing ratings on how other rated players scored that round is inherently flawed.  It is what it is; clever statistical munging that gives an approximation of skill relative to one another. 

Can't guess why unofficial and official results would vary, other than they are using two different formulas. No wait, another guess; they update ratings, then run the entire system again based on the new player ratings. That is probably it.
