Rosedale / Re: New Player's League at Rosedale

Tags should always be in play per card, it's our culture. I like the protocol of pairing beginners with seasoned players

Rosedale / Re: New Player's League at Rosedale

3) Tags can be in play on card if the players on that card agree before the round starts.  The LC will NOT settle on-card tag disputes because those were personal agreements.

I think what you are doing is great. We need a NPL in town for just this reason. The one thing I disagree with is the tag thing. The tags should always be in play during a club event. That's one of the tag rules we instituted years ago. Other than that, great job on putting this together and running it.

Rosedale / New Player's League at Rosedale
« Last post by JoeBoy on June 02, 2017, 08:37:21 AM »
I want to clarify a few things about New Player's League both at Pleasant Hill and Rosedale.  New Player's League is open to everyone and is always free.  It's meant to be a friendly place for people to improve their game, get some pointers, give some pointers, and hang out with like-minded people.  While NPL doesn't play a full formal set of rules, we do try to teach full tournament rules in case a new player decides to compete in a formal environment.  Since I hadn't taken the time to do so this year, I'm going to list the generalities of NPL rules. If you have any questions, you can always ask me.

In no particular order:
1) All OB and mandos are in play unless the League Coordinator (that's me) calls it otherwise.

2) While we aren't a competitive league we do keep score, tracking all throws and penalty strokes.  We do this so that people can see how they are doing and so that new players can learn how to record scores.

3) Tags can be in play on card if the players on that card agree before the round starts.  The LC will NOT settle on-card tag disputes because those were personal agreements.

4) Since we are attempting to teach, penalty strokes are not assessed for foot-faults, scoring errors, or other general rules violations.  However, we will take the opportunity to show what was done wrong and how to correct it for formal play.  We sometimes allow a second shot for learning purposes.

5) No one is to be made to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome.  We have players of all skill levels.  The round may be longer than normal as a new player is coached.  It's just part of this league.

6) If you are a new player coming out, the LC is going to attempt to card you with one of the best players available.  This is done intentionally to teach.

7) We also play and teach disc golf etiquette rules.  Furthest disc plays first, quiet on the tee box, etc.  Although for pace of play "ready golf" may sometimes be used, in general be courteous to each other.

Pleasant Hill / NPL results 6/1/2017
« Last post by JoeBoy on June 02, 2017, 08:36:11 AM »
New Player's League hit a new high for the year with 27 players out last night.  Including at least 5 faces I'd never seen out there before.  CTP was used to teach a quick lesson on rollers.  Thanks to Brian P and Aaron S for their teachings on that.  Aaron won the CTP and donated his win to Chris E and Theresa E.  He then donated from his personal stash an Atlas, a Shield, and a Destroyer to help these brand new players round out their bags.  What can I say?  Aaron's just a great guy.  Full results are in the spreadsheet as always.

Lakeside Hills / Re: WORK DAY 6/4 - New Placements
« Last post by Tom on June 02, 2017, 05:23:31 AM »
Mainly mowers. Weather permitting I'll install long 6, long 14, and short 15. We will need to mow the rough to long 6 and 14 to make em playable and so the City can see where we want the fairways to be mowed. Yes, bring mowers.
If we can get them mowed we can play em Monday in league.

Lakeside Hills / WORK DAY 6/4 - New Placements
« Last post by Cade on June 01, 2017, 10:33:45 AM »
Many of you have asked me when new pin placements will go in at Lakeside. Here's your chance to make it happen. We are having a work day THIS SUNDAY, 6/4 at 10:00 AM to clear ground and install at least two new placements. Bring mowers and trimmers if you have them. Hand tools are good too.

I don't care how drunk you get at Rockfest, I'll be there too. Get up and let's do this!

Even if you haven't made the team yet, please send me your shirt sizes for the away jerseys so I can plan the order.

XL

You're probably an extra small


Thank you, after all this dieting and working out it is refreshing to see that people are noticing.  ;D
Okay, I will quit drifting your thread now.
