The 2012 ACE Race is right around the corner. If you are planning on bringing a basket please try to be at the park by 11:00. If you are not already scheduled to bring a basket, bring it anyhow in case someone doesn't make it. Find me for basket placement. You will want to be there early for the swap meet anyhow, right?

While we're on the topic of the proposed Glow League, I should mention (to all) that I don't anticipate the club setting it up with a highly complex format. After all, we'll be playing that league in darkness, through the chilly winter season... so the simpler the better.
However it will need to have some structure in order to legitimately call it a league, plus a consistent & fun format that will draw people out of hibernation to participate.

Adam, We have not officially defined anything about the proposed Glow League... The tee time, format of play, entry fee (if any), league administrator(s), etc. still need to be set. Regarding the Tee Time, in my opinion, the official Glow League tee time will need to be discussed & officially agreed upon by vote. When we do that, I'll be sure to point out that there's no need to set it as early as our current weeknight league tee times because we know we'll be playin ... more

However, the later we set the start time the colder it's going to be, So, I wouldn't think we would want to start very late...
Feel free to chime in with your proposed start time so we can start considering our needs prior to our league set-up meeting.

Yeah what he said, I'm digging the idea of Tuesdays.
Rick Petrie October 11, 2012 at 10:03pm
Yep. We discussed the daylight savings time dates at length in our spring DFOK meetings...
I think setting the day for the upcoming DFOK Glow League, along with the other glow league rules, should be set at the next DFOK meeting.

Less than a month. I would like either Tuesday or Wednesday. Thoughts?

It's about time we get that glow league started.

For some reason I thought Daylight Saving Time went to Nov 11th? I guess it changes on the 4th: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/rules/usa/
Get your glow discs and beacons ready!

I found what looks like a brand-new, unmarked Latitude 64 "Pain" out at Tuttle Creek last weekend. Is anyone missing one?
Robert Adams October 4, 2012 at 9:40pm
Nah, I should be back by that time. At that point it's a matter of my flight schedule, you can bet if I'm not working I'll be there.
Rick Petrie October 4, 2012 at 9:28pm
Dang! Sorry I can't make it tomorrow morning.
So, does this mean you might miss our presentation to the City of Manhattan Parks & Recreation Advisory Board coming up on November 5th?
Mark Kewley October 4, 2012 at 9:11pm
Wish I could. Wondered where you went last night Rob.
Robert Adams October 4, 2012 at 6:43pm
Since I got called back into work as I got to my tee-pad at Warner last night, I need redemption. If anyone's interested in a bag tag round at Tuttle I'll be there Friday (tomorrow) morning at 10:00 am. It'll be the last time I get to play for a three to four weeks as I'm leaving for a training exercise out of state. Hope to see some people there!
