If we're playing from the short pads, 8 and 18 are easily reachable and shoudn't need to be moved.  14 is currently set in the middle position and could be moved short as well, although it's a very easy shot from the short tee.  5 is almost 450' feet from the short tee, and tucked back into an alcove so it's almost impossible to birdie, so I would move that one short for sure.

Are any of the pins going to be moved shorter before the Ice Bowl, or will they remain in their current positions?

Lack of interest from women and so all the spots went to men? 

Yep, that's pretty much it.

2) After a hole is complete, practice putting will be allowed.


Out of curiosity, why is this rule going to change?

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?
