Winter Leagues / Re: Olathe Winter League is getting ripped off!

Money makes a difference yes but if you have more people there you will have better payouts.  Add an extra dollar.  I think alot of people go to DU because it cost more and they KNOW there is a bigger payout.  Our club which you donate that money to does go to let us converse on this site about how much money the club takes.

Well I first suggested this when the Leagues were kept track of better.  I know Chap has alot on his plate and hasn't been able to do much but I'm sure attendance is on record and could be figured up still .

Yes it is on the list of things todo.  More so now because it's in that placement. It will be taken care of.  Currently I want to focus on the things that we will need for Worlds.  Though the day we do 18 ALT we will be putting in Hole 19.  Which with hole 18 Alt gives us 20 holes. 

Here is a little video I slapped together of pictures and videos taken from 2 of the mini tourneys.  The footage isn't the best quality but until I find a good HD camera at a good price you'll have to deal with my 2.7mp FinePix S5200.

Thanks again to EVERYONE who came out and for finding what card Gary and Bill T were on.   If this keeps up we may have to do sign up in the parking lot.

I think we should do sign up down by hole 18 where we finish.  That way, if people are starting on different holes, it's a lot closer to get to their tee.  Just a thought.   Also, no 6-somes or 8-somes.....down under rounds shouldn't take 3.5 hours....doubles round are slower than singles me.  This request is probably falling on deaf ears, but I thought I'd give it the old college try.


Well Chap luckily we read with our eyes not our ears and THIS is what I proposed.  The problem isn't so much a 6-em problem as a starting hole problem.  We could still play in a sixem fast but when you stack them it becomes a problem.  Then again if you have all foursomes starting on hole 1 you have FOREVER to get everyone off and so on.  The problem solver is meet up top or on 12/18 area, play in foursomes and use 4 different hole locations to get everyone off in a timely manner. 

The problem is I don't run league.  When I mentioned it people complained and bickered.   I guess when it's your league you run it the way you want to .

No Shoenhopper!!! 

Alot of the reason we were all playing for 218 and so on is because the good numbers all got lost at the Ice Bowl.  I think #11 was probably the equivelant of #5 and so on.  This is at least something to try and just see what happens to those top 20+ tags.  I bet for at least 6 months those tags are seen MORE often and played for by the people who really should be playing for them.  And like Jack did to St. Louis last year, if you win a good Tag and are never seen again. Well it will be hard to get you then but you at least WON it and didn't just score it the first day.

Well I understand your point as I do everyone elses.  The bottom line is we want it to be fun for all who play and we want to make sure that those tags are in circulation for at least the first part of the year.  After that they will have swapped hands and moved about and it wont matter.  Still it is just as random as before but if you donate your time to playing alot of leagues then maybe .. JUST maybe the club can give back to you by allowing you to draw a good number that you will most likely lose in your first round of golf.

There is no need to mix up divisions.  THe TAG challenge is a challenge.  A challenge to be the best. or better than the other guy.   If you want to play for a better tag try an off card challenge.  Or maybe stepping up and putting your 5 bucks towards a good arse kicking.  Or "lesson" if you will.  Our league structure doesn't need to change to accomidate tags.

League structure doesn't need to can still play in your regular division.  Cards will be assigned by tag number (ie Dick #1, Tom B #8, Tavish #15, Brian Palmer #19 would be the lead card even though everyone is signed up in different divisions).

By the way off card challenges are weak, plus you don't have to accept them.....

They are only weak if you don't accept.

That's when you go for option two.  Step up and play open.  Though I will tell you.  I play open all the time and I still have to defend some 100+ # against a 160+.  So lets just let the randomness of playing for the tag on your card and the occasional off card if one so chooses and be marry.  No trying to match people up.  1000 has every right to play with 1.

Chris, If contemplating with yourself is work ... then yes you have a point.  

and Emerson.. If you got a raise in this financial crisis than you must be doing something right.  I doubt it ... BUT who knows.  

but seriously... I doubt it.

He's moving to Colorado
