Water Works / WW Glow League 12-4-14
« on: December 04, 2014, 12:22:04 PM »
How about instead of sitting in front of the pooter watching the internet melt, you should join us tonight for some glow dubs 6 pm tonight. Which looks like 40° and light to no wind. Should be a great night for glow.

I wasn't trying to argue. I was only trying to shed light on the league. Tank is... tank.

I really should not get on here and reply but I'm going to ...

I feel that there is less of a problem than you think. Down Under league in general has never turned anyway away for being a woman, old, slow, young, lacking in skills, fat skinny, ugly or weird.

We have Jen Brockman, Susan Taylor, Tavish Carduff to name a few who have played and had a great time at DU league. They even let a 9 year old play.

Now I wasn't there. I only heard what happened from both sides. It sounded more like a typically DU league. Mass confusion, headaches, redraws and late comers.

This is one of the most played leagues in town so many people show up and it is a very hard to manage league. Two people minimum to make this thing happen. That day in particular was a cluster.

They had already had people show up late and one after cards had already started to be handed out. So then they started again. At that point two more showed up, in fact one was a woman. I don't think that had as much to do with it as you think. I would say that the fact two people instead of 1 may have been the factor. If there is a cali and one person shows up then you can just play with whomever draws that card. Pretty easy to do. When two people show up you have to get the cards back and add cards in and start over. Which had already happened prior.

Now again, I wasn't there, but to me this really comes down to the player. If you have never been to a specific league and you do not know the people running it, you should probably show up early so you know the drill. Showing up late to any league causes many headaches for the people running it. These people do not get paid so when things don't go right or are crazy you will see serious frustration from them and it makes for some bad moments, like the one here IMO.

Now I know that they told someone else to tell the director they were coming. But from my understanding this person also knew no one running the league and had not played it yet. This can also be problematic. Especially when the people coming are late. Yes 10 til 1 is late. Sign up is at 12:30 and tee off is supposed to be at 1 pm. Due to before mentioned problems they were still sorting things out when they showed up.

Moral of the story is you should always be on time to whatever league you are wanting to play. Male, Female, dog or kid. (yes, dogs over kids... sorry) Especially if you are going to go there for your first time. It makes life easier and we don't get accusation of sexism and belittlement. Jay runs a great league and is one of the best in town. I hope you and everyone else involved gives it another chance to see that it isn't as bad as it may seem from this one encounter.

I hope this didn't come off wrong I am just trying to spell it out as I see it.

You look around and see if someone just lost it. If no one, keep it or give it away. If someone wanted it back, they would make it easy to return it.

73 Players? So someone can Cali?

Event is sold out at 90.  68 pre-registered.  22 spots left.

Just being nit-picky here but the 2 times I've read this post (here and on FB) I have thought you were saying it was already sold out. You may want to lead with 22 spots left. IMHO.

Well we had 6 players out for a relatively nice night for golf. No wind and a bright sun kept the temps tolerable. This was a rematch of last weeks league with Dick and Mike Fenton going head to head with Frank Weaver and (insert partner here) Sweet Will. After a back and forth fight for the lead, Mike and I finally broke free on hole #17 when Mike hit a nice 25 footer for two while Frank's trusty left route failed him for the first time in 4 weeks.

Thanks to everyone who did show up. Hopefully next year we will be talking about the 30 people who came out for a fun round of Turkey Glow.

Dick Parker/Mike Fenton - 48
Frank Weaver/Will Mersman - 49
Mike Thomas/Matt Dixon - 50

Water Works / Turkey Glow

It sounds like a group of people will be meeting tonight for Turkey Glow at Water Works. I will have lights and handwarmers on me for sale. I don't have a lot of handwarmers but I should have enough lights for those who need them.

There used to be a time when we would get 30+ for turkey glow. Let's make tonight another one of those nights.

I like that, but I think that would require more work on the staff, instead of just having a score to enter in.  You helping me organize the scores, it sounds FANTASTIC then!

As long as scores are accounted for at each event I don't think it will be that difficult. I'm always willing to help out where needed. Just don't want to commit to running any of the events. I do want to set up mini golf again at Rosedale if you still want it there.

Why not take the top 5 or 10 from every event and put them in a competitive 9 hole match starting with 0 score. So you place in the top whatever at each event you then get to play for the trophy. So you take the top 45 people and then you put them say on the front 9 and have them battle it out. Any ties would go to a playoff. Or something like that.

$1 feeds 4 people while a can a food barely feeds 1 person. Also, it takes man hours to deal with the food when it comes in and that costs money. So we have decided to only donate money as it is more useful when feeding the hungry. I'm sure others can elaborate more on the subject but this is what most food pantries will tell you when you talk to them about it.

I'll see if I have one on my home computer. If not I'll shoot it to you in the morning. Feel free to email me with a reminder.

Wet them down to make mud and then scrape them out with something long and skinny.
