Tournaments / Re: 2nd Annual Capital City Classic
« on: April 03, 2009, 09:52:03 AM »
We are working on getting another scorepoint so that in the event we go over 90 players, we will play both courses both rounds.  This way we won't have to turn anyone down.  Still though, if you plan on attending, please let me know. 

Both courses are ready to play today.  Big shunga is missing two baskets, but will be out there by early afternoon and will be fully ready.  The crestview gold course will have a slight tweak to it as the down under hole is a muddy mess and won't be used...

Holes 1-7 play normal (hole 7 used to be 8 tee to 9 basket)
Hole 8- 8 tee to 10 short basket
Hole 9- 11 tee to 14 basket
Hole 10- Normal 15 long
Hole 11- 16 tee to 17 basket

The rest of the holes are as we have played in the past.  I will have maps and notes for everyone tomorrow and will go over the changes in the players meeting.  There is some standing water on the courses and will play as casual. 

Hope to see everyone tomorrow!

We have most of the course at Big Shunga set up and hope to have it completed by the end of the day.  We were trying for last weekend, but with the 6" of snow... not so much.  Rain this week has been postponing it until now.  The crestview gold layout will be setup on friday afternoon for play. 

Signup will be at the crestview shelterhouse on saturday morning starting at 8am, with the first round starting at 10am at crestview.  We will have 1 hour between the last group finishing the first round to the start of the second round.  Second round will be played at Big Shunga Park which is at the corner of MacVicar and 29th street in topeka. 

Following the second round, we will have our awards ceremony at Pigskins Bar and Grill.  I was unsure on the weather so needed to do something indoors and the crestview shelter was rented out for that afternoon.  We have the whole loft rented out.  Pigskins, also named Boss Hawgs is located right across the street from Big Shunga in the Brookwood Shopping Center.  We will have a bar b q buffet for any interested which will include smoked meat (pork, beef), beans, french fries, and soft drinks for $10 for any interested.  I will be collecting money for the buffet at registration as I need to let them know that morning how many plates to include.  If you don't want the buffet, you can order off the menu as you please or eat elsewhere.  The bar has a ton of flatscreen and projector tvs for any interested in watching the basketball games that evening.   Should be a great time!

REgistration is at 72 people as of this morning and we will likely be capping this event at 90 so we can keep everyone at the same course for both rounds.  Please contact me to reserve your spot, or if you have questions about registration.

I have been informed that the  pdga signup isn't working properly, so let me know if you plan on attending the event by email if possible @ carlbren@sbcglobal.net, or lsdiscs@sbcglobal.net. The courses haven't been set up yet due to all the rain/snow we've had. We will likely be setting it up later this week and will post on here when we do. Hope to see everyone this weekend!

Sorry about the mis posting, this isn't the 2nd CCC.  Every thing else on the flyer is correct.  We will be playing the first round at Crestview Park which will be set up in the Gold Course pin positions.  The second round will be played at big shunga park as playing in the mighty shunga tournament.  All amatuers will get a tourney stamped disc with their entry.  We are taking registration for the tourney now and you can sign up online at pdga @ http://www.pdgasignup.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi?CMD=011&PROD=1236835526 , or email me @ lsdiscs@sbcglobal.net.  Hope to see you all on the 4th!

Tournaments / Re: Snowman Open - Olathe - Jan 1st
« on: January 02, 2009, 09:28:08 AM »
I would imagine they would keep it as a one round event... I know if they would have started at 10am and had two rounds it def would have effected attendence considering most had a late night... at least I know I wouldn't have been there!  Most likely the flights will be done similar to a ball golf scramble.  When all the cards have been handed in there would be a cutoff line between the two flights (20 teams, 10 in first, 10 in second) and they would pay the first couple spots in eacch flight.  This is the best way to do it so you don't have people throw their first round and tear it up second round.  It basically makes it a guessing game for those around the cut line.  9th place gets screwed and 10th place gets lucky!  We do our ice bowl in topeka this same way.

Crestview, Big Shunga, and the Lake are all set up the way they will be in the tourney. Here are some notes for each that may be helpful until we get maps...

Crestview Gold- 1-6 play normal. 8 tee to 9 basket. 10 down in woods behind trail. 11 tee to 14 basket. 15 normal. After 15 you will cross the parking lot and there is 8 holes on the other side. 16 pad to 17 basket. After that, there is three mor holes that go east along the road. There are four holes that head back west including normal 18 to finish up.

Big Shunga- This course has only one change from last year. Hole 12 which is along the trail heading south... the basket has moved about 80 left and 80 feet shorter to avoid some new grass the city has planted. The new grass is marked out of bounds. Other than that, same course.

email me at carlbren@sbcglobal.net if you would like me to email you a map.

We will be marking out the temp courses this weekend. Big shunga will be set up all week and we will have league out there on Wed. at 5 oclock. The lake temp course will be marked but won't be set up until day of the tourney. We might have to make some slight changes to that becuase the county has planted some new grass out there and want us to stay off of it. I'll post more info as it comes....

I also played...  not sure how they counted the pros but the adv am division played a couple courses Meyer broadway and three rivers (temp course) and there were definately some suspect 'par 4s'.  If it is an open hole and people can drive it, it's not a par four... There were also some par 4's at Robert morris that shouldn't have been, and some holes considered par 3 that should be 4.  The hole that I saw some of the highest scores on were on  hole 2 at robert morris that is about 325-350 but has three lines of trees all the way to the hole that are about 8-10' apart.  I could see it being a par 4, but they said it was a par 3...  either way, everyone plays the same course.  Making my score under par didn't make me feel any better about my rounds though...

Okay, so who's watching the action on the web http://www.pdga.com/schedule/event.php?TournID=7276  ???  Do they have PAR set TOO HIGH on these courses or what  ???


Par was pretty ridiculous.  Apparently the pdga came in before the tourney and set the par.  Put it this way... there were 350' par fours that you could get to on your drive...  courses that should play an average difficulty par 54 were playing par 60-62...
