I really dont want to change the ice bowl. I like it the way it is.
I want to let people play competitively on Saturday and award a winner on the play based on 2 rounds of play for Saturday.
I want them to come out and play on Sunday as well, just that they wouldnt have to play 18 holes to turn in a score, it would come from the best round they shot on Saturday, then they would be able to come and enjoy the mess known as the Ice Bowl.
I can see Rick's point in keeping with the tradition of the Ice Bowl trophy, traditions are hard to beat, and since the previous winners all had the mulligans to win the bucket, by golly they should stay that way.
My thought though is really not that hard to grasp. Play would be available on Saturday. Of course all the proceeds would go towards the overall Ice Bowl tally, this is not a seperate event to alienate the Ice Bowl, but rather an enhancement to possibly drive more participation to the events on Sunday.
I remember about 4 yrs ago though that Saturday was BEAUTIFUL, like 60 degrees, then we got a storm late in the afternoon and Sunday was a white wonderland, then melted away to find our plastic. So Saturday's scores may be inflated or deflated based on the weather. I am willing to take that score though as no mulligans would be allowed on Saturday.
It will be a straight disc golf play with regulation rules, 5 or 6 somes (if we have that many) and set times on Saturday so possibly those people that miss Sunday morning rounds would now have a chance to play in the afternoon final 9.
I like the idea of the Ice Bowl Champion still needing to play both rounds on Sunday, so we would then crown a King and Queen of the Ice Bowl on Saturday, and allow them to hold court on Sunday. That is altered from my original thought that you could be both the King and the Champion, you could of course be that, but it would require playing both days in all rounds.
So its sounding like something will happen on Saturday, I am liking some of the ideas that are coming out. I will again make some final decisions by the end of the week NEXT week, and should have a solid idea of where things stand for the Ice Bowl 2011 from this MMIC!
