oh gosh no.  League begin on April Fool's day, and even though I know that we typically move to the first month at Blue Valley, since I want to have the league be PDGA for the first part of the season, we may not be going to BV until the last week of the month this year....I have to review this some more, but leagues typically are from 4/1-10/1 in KC, some people jump on them earlier, I don't think that I am going to be one of them!

Cliff Drive league will remain on Monday's, and it will start probably the 2nd week after Daylight Savings kicks in next year March 18th, we shall let the hangover begin at Cliff Drive.

My bad, I misunderstood this.

ok.....so yeah I think that March 18th is going to be week one afterall.

In reviewing the information about the league, it has to be a minimum of 6 and maximum of 10.  By starting on 3/18-5/20 is the 10th week and the week before Memorial Day (no league that week) which will then enable us to see if it makes sense to continue to run a PDGA league at the course.

I have submitted the paperwork and paid the fee already, and we will continue with the First Monday of the month to be at Blue Valley this way as well.

Obviously I was way ahead of myself last fall and planned it better in my mind than I did in my review of it for this year!  I think that I have been a little pre-occupied with the Wide Open sponsorship form......

Also, though I am not certain, I am hopeful that we will have a couple of new holes to play during the league as well.  Initially I am hopeful that I can get the new first 2 holes in the ground and have some variance for the league play for 18 hole as we move forward.  Unfortunately I am heading out for work for 2 weeks so I am short there, but if I get some of it done as I hope to in advance, then it should all be good!

RobM thanks for pushing on this!  I do appreciate you getting the fire going underneath me!

I see a max of 10?  So if 12 people show up, you take the first 10 that wanna play pdga and the over can play for non rating?  If so is it the same price as regular league or what? I think I read it was a couple bucks more to go with pdga league.  Sound like something worth checking out.

that is a max of 10 weeks not people!  ;D

We can have up to 90 people for league.....but I think that the most we have ever had is like 31 at a Cliff Drive League to date....I may have to check on that some more...

Just checking in on the progress.
Any idea what divisions there will be?  Hopefully more than Pro, Am, Women.  Personally, I'd like to see Am separated in at least 2 groups.

Divisions will be based on the # of people per division.  Typically in KC leagues we don't offer more than Am, so I doubt that you will see an INT or REC division out there.  If there are 3 women, then so be it, if not....then nope.

The important thing is getting enough PDGA players out there, we need to have 5 members (people with PDGA ratings, you need not be current, but need to have a rating) in order to qualify for the ratings to be accurate and generate appropriately!

What other progress would you like to know about?  It is happening, it is paid for, there really isn't much more I can say about it.  Other than I hope there is no snow by then!!

Is it a thing where you have to be there for every week or a majority of weeks? Or is like our traditional minis just with a ratings component?

Also we are going to discuss some of the casual/league standards that aren't acceptable, right? I'm talking about picking up 10 footers not the conduct rules like drinking.

Every shot will need to be picked up Cooper, yes, and you need not be there every week as it isn't a point series at this point.  If I see enough interest in the first season and  second swing is warranted in the Summer/Fall weeks (After LDO) then we may look at a series component for this league in particular, I would probably only add an additional $1 to the "series fee" for players regardless of the notion that if you play or not.  So if you play in a league, you have to pay $1 more for a cumulative payout at the end of the series.

Cool, excited to see this happen.

And I assume you meant putted out and not picked up, otherwise I would like mine to be picked up off the tee. Beat that 18!  ;D
