I would vote to use Wyco.

Two leagues per weeek occuring at PC during grass dormancy period may cause bare spots to happen.  :-\

It would only be one night at PC.  Like the rotating PDGA league.  Not one night a week, correct Rob?

I don't have any particular format set.  It won't be all winter though.  4-6 weeks.

P Hill is a great glow course. But it is alittle east.
Aaron, if we stopped at P Hill for one evening in October, any dates you prefer (Wednesday)?

Getting my thoughts a little more organized on this.

Currently considering doing a one rounder at each course:

Swope

Prairie Hill

Shawnee Mission Park - per this website, it is open until 11pm prior to Nov. 1st.  I've been there after 8pm after 11/1 and they do kick you out.  http://jcprd.com/park_admin/hours.cfm

Prairie Center - Front half only.  Holes 1-8, 18.  Do this loop twice.

WyCo

If we settle on these 5, it would run October 1 - Oct. 29.  Wednesdays at 6pm.

It would not be PDGA sanctioned.  It is possible to sanction glow rounds for PDGA, but after running 3 10-week PDGA leagues this year, I'm ready for a bit of a break from it.

I decided to not run this particular glow league for October.  I could use a break from a weekly league and am working on a C-tier in Lawrence in November.  It's my understanding that the club has some ideas in the works for possible glow events, maybe once a month or something like that.  I'll let those that are working on it announce it when they are ready.

Sorry to disappoint anyone if you were looking forward to this.  Originally, I didn't think there was much activity for glow during the fall, but it seems like perhaps there is more than I thought so am choosing to not double up on it.

Thanks for understanding.
