I think we oughta try Kyle's idea for awhile (it sounds a little complicated, but we can probably come up with a system to track the 9-drive thing). Stu, I think we've tried every possible variation of A-player red and B-player yellow over the years and, while some of them are okay, it's never quite the level playing field everybody seems to want. Random is good IMHO. Anybody up for 530 dubs tomorrow? I'm finally off on Tuesdays and, if my morning goes well (ahem), I'll be wanting to play.

But you might have something there too, kyle...

Yeah, that's how it was when I left. With a-red, b-yellow, and women having the option to shoot the blues, if they so desired. And in turn completely random pairings. That seemed to be popular. There were at least 25-30 people a week if memory serves...

Did we try having A shoot reds and B yellow?

Sounds like pretty good ideas, especially the money stuff. As long as we're throwing ideas out I've been thinking about this for a while now. What do you think of a totally random draw with no divisions. The hitch being that each team HAS to take 9 drives from each player with a one stroke penalty for every time you don't. We would end up with some "unfair" pairings sometimes but I think that things would even out a little by doing it this way and it would introduce a lot of strategy into the ... more

I meant to say "I would NOT want to force a beginner to play the long pads."

Here is a suggestion for a sulution...just a suggestion. We ask each player to register for only $2. All of that $2 dollars goes to payout. This way we are playing competitively for a prize, even if its a small payout (pay out is not the priority here, right?) Then we provide some options, a $1 ace pot that will accumulate, and then four 50cent cpts. if we have 10 players buy ito the ctps, then one ctp will pay out 5 bucks, not bad. So now we are up to $5 dollars for the whole package, but ... more

As far as starting time goes, I don't think there's really a solution. As it is now it starts too late for some and too early for others.

Just to put my two cents in, I'm not sure that money is the big problem. Not entirely, anyway. I kinda hate to bring it up since it always seems to cause an argument but I think one of the big problems is playing the red tees or whatever tees someone decides to make up that day. I think most people are fine with kicking down ten bucks if they honestly think they have a chance to contribute to the team's score. But playing reds pretty much takes the lesser skilled/shorter thrower out of the game. ... more

Cost too much. Starts too late.

I agree with both of ya, dubs has drifted into something else. It saddens me to hear about club problems. I miss the days when I was able to be a big part of doubles, but the money thing is what drove me away from it. I like Justin's idea with free play and ctp's and or ace pot option. I was out to the course today and was sickened at the sight of 7's basket just about completely uprooted. Kent and I are going to put an alternate sleeve in to the left and deeper and then we can re-set the origin ... more

No Lex. I did't take any offence. Your absolutely right about tournament costs, and Dubs shouldn't drain anyones pockets. Its important to speak your mind brother, thats how things have always been in this club. I think, and this is my opinion, we should just make dubs free to play for a while. Maybe have some options to buy into, ace pot, ctps?

i hope that are more people that show up to doubles, you make a great point, in which that is how the club has supported itself fore many years, and i hope that it will continue to due the same for many more to come. i hope you didn't take my post wrong, i will always support nudga and proud to be one. i just don't get why did it become so expensive to play? i have a hard time wrapping my head around why tournaments cost so much?

Hey NUDGA,



I found a Wizard out on 11 today with the name Jayden on it. Tried texting but no response. Let me know if anyone knows this person. I'm sure they'd like their putter back.

Yeah I hear you Lex. This year has been packed with events, but I assure you that the people that still want to play are there for the right reasons. I still had fun on tuesday. I got to see an old friend that had come for his first doubles of the summer ( it was only my second outing for dubs this year) I also got to meet a new club member, who turned out to be a real cool dude. Thats what dubs is about, seeing your buddys, meeting new people, and learning how to get better at discgolf. We did ... more

@ justin's post, i haven't been around at all this summer but i have heard that doubles is dead. that is a shame but in my opinion, we did it to ourselves. i remember when there were only 9 holes and the weeds were taller than me (which that is not hard to do) but we went to play disc golf to play not "pay". it seems to me that every time i go to the course, i am hit up to play for a money game and if i do not play then, i am considered a "pu$$y". really? i play disc golf for a release!! not ... more
