Secondly, Heritage and Lakeside are bluff moves to get you to go practice them.  Meanwhile, we will be practicing on our own private temp course, that will only be revealed to Least-siders on tee-time.  ;D


Thanks for the heads up.  West siders showing their deep strategic thinking here!

If selected as East Side captain, I would also mandate that if you qualified, you won't be replaced by an alternate if you're available to play.  However, I would differ from Joe in that my captain's picks would basically have the same status as qualifiers.  They could play as many rounds as able.  Alternates would purely be used as needed to fill out the roster as needed.  This approach is fair in that it provides ample opportunity for everyone to qualify, but also maximizes an EAST SIDE victory by making sure top players are able to play all three matches, even if there are scheduling conflicts with qualifiers.

I will likely follow the 6-6-4 qualifying format as well, with 6 spots selected at the Rosedale Open, 6 spots selected at a WW league, and 4 captain's picks.  I would also have to qualify and would act only as the team captain, not a player, if I failed to do so. 

As for course selection, we should be playing at a course that plays to the EAST SIDE's strengths, and I have a few ideas on that front.  However, that discussion should take place in a more private setting.  :-X

Qualifiers should be at events or leagues with as many people as possible to ensure good competition for each spot.  The Rosedale Open is probably the best early season tourney under these guidelines.  An early Waterworks league would be a good second qualifier as well. 

I agree with Dick on having the best 16 qualifying players from each side, with no divisions.  As I've stated in the past, captains should be focused on the strategy of the event, not having to recruit people to fill divisions.

Also, I am nominating myself for East Side captain.  As a graduate of THE University of Missouri, I have the bona fides to lead the East side.

This is really going to hurt my plans to unveil my 360 degree drive down under.

Who's dumb idea was it to schedule this during the Royals Championship Series?  :)

Yeah, I predict a large drop off in players from Round 1 to Round 2.

Only those who prefer watching others play baseball to as opposed to personally playing disc golf...and that's not me

Can someone please explain to me why JohnE didn't lay up on the area just off the tee on 17 today?  The caddy book appears to show that area as safe.

Have any decisions been made regarding pin locations at WW and Rosedale?  Will we be playing the current set-ups?

Was it a blank disc?

Yep, no ink, just a Green Blizzard Katana.  Wow if you found that I'm going to be impressed.  I combed the area for 30 minutes and never found it.

Because winning Am worlds makes you somebody. I'm mean, just think of the others who have won in the past.

There was that one guy from last year... oh, what's his name?

Oh, and that other guy from the year before. Man, his name is just slipping the tongue.

Oh and that one year that one guy won. He was pretty good. I wish I could remember his name.

Yeah I mean if you can't win AM worlds, you suck at life.  C'MON MAN!

Yeah I've heard all this before.  I'm interested in anyone knows Joseph personally and specifically why he stays in AM. 

many reasons can come to mind.  As he hasn't won a World title, that may be on his list.  He doesn't have the mental capacity to play at the pro level could be another thought.

As for me a life long AM with a BLIP in the pro side, my decision is easier (as a 911 rated player MUCH easier), I want to be able to pick and choose events I want to play.  Next year I am VERY excited about going back to Kalamazoo, albeit as a player this time to play.  Much more excited about that than the Pittsburgh worlds for the pro side.  Same with worlds last year, I would rather have played in Emporia than Lemon Lake for the worlds.  Now in 2011, Santa Cruz as the "pro" worlds was obviously a better choice in my mind over New York.

As an Am I typically have better choice selections on where I can play and I love options.  As a Pro, I limit my own personal choices.

You can ALWAYS play open, ALWAYS, there is never a time when you can't sign up for open.  You can't though sign up as an AM unless you have that status.

That's my take, plus I love hearing people tell me I am silly for not playing pro.....the reason, as many could attest to last night, I just don't want to be that serious all the time on the course.  As an AM I also get that luxury more so than on the pro side.....

So why doesn't he want to play open?
