Alternate Reality formats
« on: May 23, 2009, 11:30:15 PM »
I know it's tournament season, but there's plenty of time to do other things for fun.

I propose a couple of one day events, either one or two rounds, makes no difference. 

Remember the "One Disc Wango"?  That's one idea.  Alternate hand is another (hehehe..) Roll it out/back it in is always fun.  Grand Safari Day.  Match play.  Match play would HAVE to have a pay-in and pay-out, 9 holes per round. 

Anyone else want to get in on any of these?

Re: Alternate Reality formats - MATCH PLAY SIGN UP
« Reply #9 on: May 26, 2009, 10:16:03 AM »
We can do Match Play at SMP. We will need a sign up at least a week prior to the matches to set the matches up on a bracket with handicaps, etc. Then those playing "Match play" can play separate from those playing regular league. We can set up a paypal sign up with the winner getting paid through paypal as well. Thus, no money was exchanged in the park.

So if you would like to do MATCH play, sign up here so we can get an idea of who many people want to play. Then we will figure out the cost and how many rounds it will take to finish it.

I'm in.

True Match Play would be 1st round the Best rated vs. the Worst rated. and so on and so forth.  so a 1 would play a 16.  Seeing as you have 16 people to play.  That is another thing.  To do so you would need to have a 16 man format and a 32.  Then do byes.  I would not be apposed to a handicap version either as long as it were possibly set that way. What I have thought in the past would be:

16 people

$2.00 1st round.  You must be at the first night.
$4.00 2nd round.  League is Tuesday night and if you can NOT make it you must RE SCHEDULE with that person for a later date, THAT WEEK!.  You must have your score turned in by Sunday evening to the director.  If you fail to work it out with your competitor, YOU MUST FORFEIT.  The other player MUST at least provide 2 options and be able to follow through.
$6.00  Semi finals. 4 people left. Same rules above apply.
Free FINALS.  Same 4 people. Same rules apply. Play for 1st 2nd - 3rd 4th
$2 per person -> KCFDC
No Ace Fund (unless you want to)
Rest of the money to payout between TOP 4.

This I'm sure has flaws but its a skeleton.

i was just saying since match play is hole-by-hole and does not keep stroke totals it would be very difficult to accurately handicap some players. you can't do it hole by hole because that would seldom if ever come out to an entire stroke and it would be unfair to give the lesser player a whole stroke on a whole which did not demand it. i like dick's idea best (except the tuesday night part, i have a softball league)
