The Spring 2014 PDGA League will be a rolling, wandering league titled Wandering Wednesdays.  Just because we are wandering, we are not lost.  (Believe it or not, a lot of thought has been put into this.)

The official PDGA 10-week portion of the league will start April 16.  This delayed start is so we can capture the last Wednesday before the Wide Open in the league format, June 18th.  I'm hoping we get some pro's out there to test the course prior to the tournament.  We’ll have two weeks of non-PDGA reporting on April 2 and 9 because I’m antsy to get going.

For the 10-week PDGA League, the fee structure will be:
KCFDC Members
With Ace Fund - $6
Without Ace Fund - $5

Non-KCFDC Members
With Ace fund - $7
Without Ace fund - $6

Fee structure for non-PDGA dates (April 2, 9) will be:
KCFDC Members
With Ace Fund - $5
Without Ace Fund - $4

Non-KCFDC Members
With Ace fund - $6
Without Ace fund - $5

The schedule will be:

April 2 – WyCo – 5:30 check in, 5:45 or earlier tees (non-PDGA date)
April 9 – WyCo – 5:30 check in, 5:45 or earlier tees (non-PDGA date)

** PDGA STARTS **
April 16 – WyCo – 5:30 check in, 5:45 tees

April 23 – Prairie Center (PC) – 5:30 check in, 5:45 tees

April 30 – Shawnee Mission Park (SMP) – 5:30 check in, 5:45 tees

May 7 – Lakeside (Olathe Birdland) – 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

May 14 – WyCo - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

May 21 – PC - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

May 28 – SMP - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

June 4 – Lakeside - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees

June 11 – Blue Valley of Kansas (south Olathe). 5:45 check in

June 18 – WyCo - 5:45 check in, 6:00 tees.  Should be set to KCWO Gold settings

The June 11 TBD will be determined after informally listening to suggestions from those that actually come to the league.  Because this is a KCFDC approved league, for various reasons it needs to remain on a KCFDC KS course.  Our choices will be:
SMP, WyCo, PC, Lakeside, Rosedale Up Top (if ok with Rosie league director), Rosedale Down Under.

Ace fund will start at $100 thanks to the KCFDC BoD.  I appreciate the BoD providing a start up Ace fund for this KCFDC sanctioned league.

Divisions offered:
The reporting of divisions will differ for the PDGA and KCFDC.  For the payout portion (KCFDC), it will be based on standard KC league formats.  In order to have a division, 3 people or more need to be available for the least restrictive denominator per Pro or Am division

For example –
1-5 Open players – all play Open.
6+ Open players, can split into various divisions (Open, Pro Masters, Pro Women, Pro Grand Masters, etc.)

1-5 Am players – All play Advanced
6+ Am players – Can be split into various divisions (Advanced, Advanced Women, Intermediate, Rec, etc.)


Payouts will be the approved KCFDC format as shown here:

Reporting to the PDGA:
As far as reporting to the PDGA there are two benefits: first to get a rating, second to get point used for Pro and Am Worlds.  It benefits everyone, top and bottom, to be placed in the same grouping for points if the highest categories are used.  Therefore, for the PDGA reporting it will be simply Open and Advanced regardless of gender or age.

Joe, I appreciate your enthusiasm.

BTW - if anyone knows for sure they will be coming to any of these, and if you wish, I will 'pre-register' you in the PDGA listing once I figure out how to do that this weekend.

Rob,

You can start a spreadsheet and upload it in the PDGA site and that will populate the people that are playing, so that would be the "pre-registered" piece.

There are many benefits of this league, the primary one being getting out and playing organized disc golf. There are also KC club league payouts (cash for pros, funny money that can be used at Disc Golf World and Dynamic Discs Kansas City for ams). For fun (and really only for fun), there will be four discs given away at the end of the 10-week session.

 The first two are new, but out dated 2013 Kan-U-Wyco DyeMax'd Dynamic Discs Fuzion Trespass. One will go to the overall points leader for Ams. The other will go to the Am player that participates in the most rounds. If there is a tie, it will go to the one with the most points. The discs will not go to the same person. Why this disc? Because originally this league was going to be a strictly a WyCo league, but we changed it up a bit.

 The next one is a Innova KC Pro Roc that is slightly used. Why? Well because this is the KC (Kansas City) Pro division of course. From what I understand a seasoned Roc is more valued than a new Roc. So there you go. I personally would not know since I use Buzzzs and Truths. This will go the the overall Pro points leader. I'll also will be asking all Pros that play in the league to sign the disc as we progress. This way the winner can be reminded of all the players they whipped up on.

 The fourth disc will be a brand spanking new Discraft Pro-D Hawk. It will be given to the pro player that plays at least three rounds, but has the lowest rated round average. Why? Because it is a *PRO*-D, a Hawk which is a very easy to throw midrange, and is hunter orange so you'll never lose the disc in the rough (which you probably are in often with your lower ratings). This is all in good fun of course, so relax Francis. This too will be signed by all pro players so you know who to ask for when needing playing tips.

 To all you serious peeps - these are fun prizes, not serious schwag. Lighten up.

 Finally, thanks to Pete Cashen for donating the two Trespasses and the Hawk.
