Is Prairie Center currently in the configuration that will be used for the OSO?

General Banter / Re: Ratings?
« on: August 16, 2013, 08:29:10 am »
If you have at least 8 rounds in the last year, they only factor in rounds one year from the most recent update, so all your 2012 summer rounds dropped off from your rating, which is why you only saw a "rounds used" increase of one round.  Even if you've been playing well this summer, if you had several good 2012 summer rounds drop off your rating, you wouldn't see much of a change.  The last 25% of your rounds are double weighted, and it looks like your rating is basically correct. 

Here's the language on ratings from the PDGA website-

"All rated rounds you have played and have been reported to the PDGA within 12 months of your most recently rated round will be included in the calculation. However, if any one of those ratings is either more than 100 points below your average rating or more than 2.5 standard deviations below your rating – whichever number is smaller – that round will not be included. That works out to about 1 in 50 rounds getting dropped. Rounds where you DNF (Do Not Finish) are never counted in your rating. The most recent 25% of your rounds get double weighted which slightly boosts your rating if you have been steadily improving. If a player has fewer than 8 rounds in the past 12 months, since their most recent round, then we’ll go back up to another 12 months until we find up to 8 rounds but never go back any farther than a total of 24 months."

I gotta chime in here.....This is a NEW course, and these things will take time to eradicate.  Also with all the moisture that we have gotten this year, plantlife is reproducing at alarming rates.  I have been pulling them off me at Cliff over the last few weeks with the work that I have been doing, and it is simply a matter of time before these areas don't have as many attempts to reproduce as you would like.

This is a NEW course, it will take time to beat down to the likes of a Rosedale where over 1000 people play a week.  Once that happens, then you can complain that all the cool places that we have to play are over populated!


I wasn't complaining,  I was just offering a suggestion for other players and describing my sheer amazement at the number of burrs I collected.  In the future, instead of trying to hit the gap and risk a turnover into the brush, I will be throwing the big hyzer.

Threw a disc into the brush on the right side of 17.  Got my disc back after looking for 10 minutes....and came out with hundreds if not thousands of burrs all over me.  Won't be throwing over there anytime soon.

FYI, the entry fees on the sign-up page don't match what's on the tournament flyer.

Got #7 at William Jewell last night with a Champion Katana.  Sweet 350' S curve smashed right into the chains.

You would think with all those aces Cubby would have a higher rating......

Are the baskets in yet? If not, what kind of timeframe is there for installation.  Thanks!

Jack, do you have an updated concept map of what Cliff will look like when all of the modifications are complete?

Since this is a sanctioned tournament Kevin, your 945 rating disqualifies you from anything but Adv, sorry.  :P

How dare you use my own rating against me!

I'm interested in moving down to Rec from Advanced.  Is there any way the rarely seen Novice division might open up?

I made one for worlds in 09. I can post it here when I get home.

I think that's what I was looking for.  Thanks Dick.

I remember seeing a map of Thornfield at one time with hole distances.  Does anyone happen to have a copy of this map?
