Let's show the world that this sport is growing, that people care about the sport, how it is played and that we need more courses and we need to take care of these courses.
You can become a DGLA Player member by going to the Disc Golf League Association website and paying by PayPal, Mailing a check to DGLA. Check here for more info or to register:
DGLA: the Disc Golf League Association is a Non-Profit organization founded in 2009 to help disc golf players, clubs and leagues.
Based on player's and league coordinator's ideas and comments and the continued devotion of the DGLA and DGS staff during countless disc golf rounds and hours at the our local brewery/// I mean, hours of board meetings - the rules for the DGLA State-wide Point Series are available here.
The Point Series point calculation tries to encourage players to play often yet balance this against many who cannot play more than once or twice a week.
During a week (Sunday to Saturday) points are calculated for each participating league round you play. The highest TWO point total from a participating league are added into your total and the others are "dropped". Winter Aces are worth 25 points even if that league round is dropped. League round points are basically calculated by adding 2 points for participation and one point for every player you beat and if there is no tie for first place the winner gets 2 additional points for being the "Out Right Winner". Now that basic calculation are further adjusted to encourage small leagues and balance out larger leagues using three levels; 4-19 players, 20-59, and 60+ players. The points awarded are different for each group. The smaller league rounds will get a guaranteed max point total the same as 20 players, the middle size league round are calculated as described above and the larger league rounds have a cap with max points being set to 60 players - Details can be reviewed at www.discgolfleagueassociation.org
Scores must be entered the same as leagues determine payouts; If Divisions are used for payouts than scores must be entered by division. If handicaps are used for payouts then the handicap adjusted scores must be entered. DGLA is working with the DiscGolfScene to create a automatic Handicapped system - coming soon
Cali - If there is one Cali in a double league they are counted as two players but if there is more than one Cali than they are only counted as one when calculating point totals. This ensures leagues can have Cali rounds with multiple Cali teams, but the point totals are accurate based on the number of actual players that played the round.
As always leagues can use their own points system or no point when entering league rounds, as the OrCPS points are calculated independently, allowing league more flexibility to continue with their legacy systems or try new ones for their individual leagues.
OrCPS automatically keeps your best TWO rounds per week (Sunday - Saturday) when calculating your OrCPS total points. This is automatically recalculated whenever new scores are posted or scores are updated. If you play more than two rounds in a week (Sunday - Saturday) then the lower scores will show as "Dropped". Get out and play as much as you can to increase your skill and maximize your points but if you are limited to how often you can play your goal would be to try and get at least two rounds per week.
Winter Aces: Worth 25 points – League Admin – this is automatically calculated so if you want to use a different point system for your individual league Aces you can.
Disc Golf Scene has monthly awards based on OrCPS rounds for each month. Check the OrCPS Leaderboard to see special highlights and achievements. That’s more DGS Bling for your profile.
There are more leagues than ever so get out to new courses or new leagues and see what is going on throughout the state. Don't overlook the smaller leagues - they tend to incorporate new ideas faster, have a really friendly group feel and you get introduce to the new courses with the locals who know them best. I also highly recommend making it out to one of the larger leagues as well to experience the energy of all those players coming together at one time, yet in a slightly more casual environment than a tournament. Bottom line, get out and play often!!!! & Enjoy.
As a player in the OrCPS-S you represent the core Oregon Disc Golf players and you can really help make this sport better. Help pass along the Disc Golf etiquette that makes rounds fun and fair for all. Encourage new players and pass along some tips to help others improve. Bring a friend out and expose them to the sport. If you pack it in, pack it out - or at least make sure it ends up in a trash can. Keeping the courses clean is critical to keeping our courses. One of the biggest arguments to closing a course or making it pay to play is the is keeping the course clean. We have naturally beautiful courses let's help keep them that way.
If you have questions or ideas concerning DGLA or the OrCPS please post your comments or send us a message.

OK it's been a long winter so here is long post to help fill you in on the latest OrCPS-W news.
What topics will I ramble on about in this news post:
* OrCPS - Finale?
* OrCPS - The Future is in your hands...
* Oregon <– O –> Michigan Disc Swap
* January Weekly and Monthly stats update
**** OrCPS - Finale?
All of us here at DGLA are excited to see how the Oregon players have taken to the Oregon Cooperative Point Series and provided feedback and suggestions. This interaction is a great starting place for the Cooperative aspect and shows that the future of the OrCPS is great if history is an indicator the Oregon disc golf leagues are posed for some significant growth. Very exciting.
A few of the comments/suggestions were related to how to enhance the wrap-up of the season, a Finale to all the weeks of fun and competition. Rick Saffeels was one who not only provided feedback but was willing to lend a hand and explore what has been done in the past and what options there are to figure out how to make this a reality in Oregon.
This event is after the completion of the OrCPS so the OrCPS-Winter 2014 Champion will already be determined based on the rules posted at the begging but this is a way to get together and celebrate the Winter season completion and compete with players from all over the state. We will be able to evaluate if this can be incorporated into the OrCPS in the future.
Saturday, March 15, 2014
"2 rounds on one Middle-Ground: North Eco Park
Divisions will Apply to both Rounds.
First round holes will be for anyone to play. First round will have Round Winners and Trophies for the 18 Holes (some temp holes) $15 will get you a Stamped Innova disc and $5 will go towards payouts (great deal).
Second round will be exclusive to the Top 10 Points Holders from the season and the top 3 finishers in the first round in each divisions. Only the Top 2 Players in each division will get paid out in the second round. This way, everyone plays for the cash payout, but only 25 will compete for the money in the second round. Everyone will leave with a sweet disc, and possibly a CTP, Trophy, or some cash."
There is nothing better than the excitement and energy that events like this create when players from different clubs and leagues from all over the state come together for both fun and competition. Even if you don't make it into the2nd round, watching those top players who have earned their spot to compete is amazing disc golf situation. Not very often is there a gallery of spectator walking around with the players. The energy, shared moans on the slight misses and echoing cheers showing everyone's appreciation for some amazing shots is priceless and really brings this sport to new heights.
Another opportunity to consider to help wrap up the OrCPS-W with a Bang in your local area - The Raid. With a little collaboration and cooperation you can get a few local leagues to converge ("Raid") at one league round and have super league round. Now only one league post the round so this could affect individual leagues as they have one less round for the season but the net gain is worth it and the impact is minimized if the plan is posted and discussed with the league members early. If you pick a morning league and afternoon league you can really maximize the fun with many more players, grab a bar-B for a fun lunch before the 2nd round. At the end of the winter season the few fair weather players begin to come out of hibernation and are trying to get back in the swing of the game - these types of events are a great way to get more players out and the current players smiling - The more players the more points but even more important, the MORE FUN.
*** OrCPS - The Future is in your hands...
So you see that players make a difference; with suggestions, and even questions to help us identify what is not clear to everyone and of course the volunteers. There are many ways to get involved and help Disc Golf leagues and the sport grow and improve.
Everyone has an impact, either negatively or positively. It can be as simple as helping a league Admin during registration. These guys help ensure we have a consistent event to increase our fun. How often do we thank them for their efforts - THANKS for all you do League Admin.
Creating a fair, safe and encouraging environment to play our sport with other players that we can share, grow and compete with week after week is a major factor in the growth of this sport.
Tournaments are the ultimate test of players skill at that moment, under those conditions with a strong focus on competition. Leagues bring players together week after week with more emphasise on fun while still competing, learning, sharing. Look at any sport and you will find many time more players involved in leagues and the more players in leagues means an increase in players attending tournaments.
The future of Oregon Disc Golf is in the hands of the Oregon players on the courses right now. DGLA is excited to help you define and achieve your goals.
*** 2014 Winter DGLA: Oregon <– O –> Michigan Disc Swap
Well so far there are 11 Oregon disc collected and 15 Michigan discs. There is still time as the dead line is Feb 28th. I am currently holding off collecting more Michigan discs to keep the numbers close but if your interested in adding to your collection, adding some interest to your CTP or award disc selection let me or ROGUE RIDER know.
**** January Weekly and Monthly stats update
First realize their is only three weeks left in the OrCPS-Winter 2014 - Can you tell the seasons are changing and Spring is almost here??? Ok maybe we need to send mother nature a Outlook reminder but Spring weather will arrive, the bugs will start to do their thing, the casual will attack the courses as well and we will continue to play our game.
92 total players have played in the OrCPS-W 2014 so far.
8 participating leagues
In January 63 players played rounds in the OrCPS-W, that is a OrCPS Record for January (OK it's the first January of the OrCPS but all records have to startt some place ;-) AWESOME!
So what was the result of those January winter rounds?....
Most rounds played in a given week during January was 4 by Ira B, who made it onto the weekly Rounds leaderboards 3 of the 4 weeks.
Three players managed 3 rounds in a week at least once and two achieved this in two of the four weeks in January:
THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS 3 Twice
Rick Saffeels 3 TWICE
Erik Gyllenskog 3
Most points in a given week with how they achieve it????
Rick Saffeels 46 points in week 7
Two 1st place wins; Friday Frolfers - Camp to Camp & Lunar League "Traveling Glow"- Nicely done...
THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS in week 8 accumulated 45 points
Also Two 1st place wins; D.O.R.C.s (Day Of Rest Crew) & CCDG Sunday Random Doubles Also Nicely done...
So there is a slight (one point) advantage to winning a singles round over a doubles round, at least when the league size is 20 players or less. I suspect this will take on a new dynamic in the summer when league size increase with those fair weather players come out of hibernation.....
Other top point achievers for a week in Jan.
Rick Saffeels 43
AGRO JACKSON 42 Two weeks in a row. CCDG Sunday Random Doubles & CCDG Saturday Singles
"<Blank Man>" 41
How did the January overall stats looks once everything was combined:
20 players made it out to play at least two different leagues during January, 12 players hit 2 and 8 players played hit a few more, with AGRO JACKSON playing at the most leagues in January....
1 AGRO JACKSON 5
2 Rick Saffeels 4
2 Ira B 4
2 THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS 4
5 " LUCKY " 3
5 Erik Gyllenskog 3
5 Grape Ape 3
5 Jesse Walker 3
63 players in January - 43 players played at least 2 rounds during January. 30 players got in 3 or more, 15 got in 4 or more, and 1 got in an 10 rounds during the four week period - Rick Saffeels
1 Rick Saffeels 10

16 aaron walker 58 3
17 Grape Ape 56 3
18 Travis Towne 55 3
19 troy RED JOHN 53 3
19 mike albertson 53 2
So we see the guys at the top of the points are also the ones who continue to show up on the # of Rounds leaderboard and also continue to perform well. Now not everyone has the opportunity to play multiple times a week and so there are some sleepers out there that if they could, the stats show they would be giving the leaders a run for thier points.
Let's look at Average points per round accumulation:
mike albertson - Although for January he is sitting at 19th for point accumulation in January he has the highest point/round average of 26.5 the advantage of playing in a larger league - ABDG Glow 2013. Keep it up mike.
Right behind mike is jason hardin with a 26.3 pts/round average - also playing ABDG Glow 2013.
Jason "Rage" morton & aaron walker also making the ABDG Glow 2013 rounds work for them as well.
Get'n their winter GLOW ON - Nicely done guys.
19 mike albertson 53 2 26.5
9 jason hardin 79 3 26.33333333
10 Jason "Rage" morton 78 3 26
16 aaron walker 58 3 19.33333333

8 Tiger Discs 94 7 13.42857143
6 Ira B 115 9 12.77777778
So overall to date here is the top twenty:
So with about three weeks left in the quest to be crowned Oregon Disc Golf League Winter Champion, the "Beast" is stacking the "Tiger" to make up a 59 point deficit. GAME ON! Erik Gyllenskog, - scottishrob - and Jesse Walker are not to far behind. Come on Winter Aces.....

OK we are in week 9 of the 14 week Oregon Cooperative Point Series Winter (OrCPS-W) 2014.
So for January what are the trends:
"COLD" - with some "HOT" action at the top of the leaderboard......
So far the most rounds played in a given week is 4 by Ira B - Way to go Ira. Next is 3 rounds by THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS and Rick Saffeels. THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS managed it two weeks so far in January it seems to be paying off for him. Nicely done.
Now for points Rick Saffeels took the top weekly point accumulation with 43 &46 points. THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS also took a week with 45 points and john cooper is currently leading this week with 39.
Rick Saffeels is ahead of THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS but anything can happen. Several new names on the top of the weekly leaderboards and with 5 weeks left who knows what the final tally will be and who will be crowned the Oregon Winter Disc Golf League Champion.....

Also the last day to add a new league to the OrCPS – Winter is Jan 15th as well.
So what's been going down throughout Oregon leagues in the last few weeks? Well I'm not in Oregon and I am not out playing your leagues so all I have is these stats to comment on. I'd love to add any insights, crazy happenings and any local color anyone is willing to share. Otherwise I will just scan the stats and see who is doing what. The other thing that would help is a few pictures of leagues, registration, some play, the weather ect. Post the pictures on your profile and in the Album setting link them to your league, then everyone can get a view of disc golf throughout the state or across the country.
Ok for the month of December (1st – 28th) , two days after the 28th, Disc Golf Scene magic happens and the special weekly Leaderboards lock – only those rounds posted to that points are included.
The overall leader board updates when ever a league round is posted or updated.
The results - Players get extra Achievement Bling on their profile pages and the special leaderboards memorialises the achievements; the most Rounds played and most Points accumulated during a week, and Month, as well as most Wins and most Leagues played for the month.
It’s currently week 7 so everyone still has time to climb the leaderboard. Let’s take a look at who is playing and who is achieving.
Greatest points accumulated in a week for the month of December:
Well two players managed to amass 46 points. They each played two rounds during that week and both won both rounds that week.
- scottishrob - - week 4 - played Lunar League "Traveling Glow" & Liquid Sunshine PDGA League
THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS - Week 3 - played Liquid Sunshine PDGA League & D.O.R.C.s (Day Of Rest Crew)
I loved this comment:
"My first "LIQUID SUNSHINE" round. Thanks Steve W. for hosting this league. DGLA Oregon Cooperative Points Series brought me out to a this league. Winter disc golf is always a joy with these guys."
This is what the OrCPS is supposed to encourage - more players getting out to more leagues and sharing and spreading the fun. THANKS "BEAST"
The next highest weekly point getters during December were:
Rick Saffeels 42
THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS 41
Rick Saffeels 39
Rick Saffeels 38
Josh Pittsburgh Steelers Parker 38
bryan van fleet 34
" LUCKY " 34
Steven Egler 32
Mike Wilson 31
Note they did not have to win each round but by playing at least two rounds a week they maximized their point total and stay within striking distance.
The OrCPS - uses your two best rounds and drops the others - Play a third round drop your worst round - maximize your points. It's a long winter - anything can happen.
So who Played the most rounds in a given week?
Most rounds played in a given week for December was 3, achieved by two players.
Rick Saffeels 3 week 5
Erik Gyllenskog 3 week 4
The next highest number of rounds in a given week was 2 rounds, Several players made it out for two rounds multiple times in December:
THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS 2 week 3,4 & 5
Rick Saffeels 2 week 3 & 4
- scottishrob - 2 week 4 & 5
Erik Gyllenskog 2 week 3 & 5
The remaining die-hards, who ensured they got at least their two rounds in for the week:
Steven Egler 2 week 5
bryan van fleet 2 week 5
Josh Pittsburgh Steelers Parker 2 week 5
Shawn Madden 2 week 4
L Bledsoe 2 week 4
" LUCKY " 2 week 4
Mike Wilson 2
Tiger Discs 2
Way to get out and enjoy the rounds even in Winter guys.
Ok now let’s look at the December overall stats:
In a 14 week Point series a good week is great but consistency helps alot. Just getting out each week will keep you near the top and the ultimate is consistently winning but there are a lot of other players out there trying to do the same.

OK great weekly and monthly achievements by everyone at the top of the leaderboards.
The trends for December are pretty clear. The players who got in their two rounds each week for most of the weeks are near the top. Wins helps - collecting the most points for a given round as seen by
Rick Saffeels & THE "BEAST" OF THE WOODS - both with three Wins for the month and in spots 1 & 2 for overall points for the month. Now Erik Gyllenskog shows us that you don't have to win ever round to collect a bunch of points and stay within striking distance for the long haul. He is Third on the monthly overall points with 8 rounds like Rick Saffeels. Let the games Continue......
Lets where the overall standings are currently:
LEAGUE LEADERS (Out of 85 Players participating so far)

1 Rick Saffeels 185 11
2 - scottishrob - 180 10

5 Chadwick - Acerbinky 123 7

16 Matt Hurt 83 5
17 Mike Wilson 81 6
18 Michael Schmidt 77 8
19 AGRO JACKSON 73 4
20 Will Wagman 72 4
Ok so some of the secrets are pretty obvious.
The more rounds you play the higher the probability you will learn new skills to improve your game.
The more you improve the better your finish and the points help track that for you.
Getting out even when the weather is challenging. You are used to playing in differing conditions - your ready for any situation.... It's also great to be out on the course in different conditions to experience the full range of beauty that our parks offer us.
The more leagues you visit the more you learn about how different groups run their leagues, side games, new ideas, and these ideas spread. You also meet more players, make new friends and find new players to play with.
Like weather conditions courses change the game as well. The more courses you play the better you are at assessing the course and your find your throw more veriety of shots, versus playing the same holes the same way each round.
Welcome to all the new players. Great to see all the regulars on the leaderboards week after week.
Thanks again to DiscGolfScene for all the auto-magic that makes this possible and the League Coordinators who make leagues happen week after week, in every condition possible, so we can play some more Disc Golf...
Everyone enjoy the Winter league rounds - Stay Warm and Safe.

DGLA: Oregon <– O –> Michigan Disc Swap
DGLA expanded the Statewide Cooperative Point Series to Oregon and Ohio this winter and already the expanded player cooperation has yielded new ideas. ROGUE RIDER (Lee) from Oregon sent me an idea to swap a few Michigan Event or Club stamped discs for some Oregon discs to help spice up their CTP and award disc selection. Pretty cool idea. With a little more cooperation, Lee and I have expanded this idea to help all the interested clubs and leagues in our state to create the first Oregon <– ... more
DGLA expanded the Statewide Cooperative Point Series to Oregon and Ohio this winter and already the expanded player cooperation has yielded new ideas. ROGUE RIDER (Lee) from Oregon sent me an idea to swap a few Michigan Event or Club stamped discs for some Oregon discs to help spice up their CTP and award disc selection. Pretty cool idea. With a little more cooperation, Lee and I have expanded this idea to help all the interested clubs and leagues in our state to create the first Oregon <– O –> Michigan Disc Swap
What we purpose is to collect discs from any club/league in Michigan and in Oregon and then swap the discs and redistribute the discs to the participating club/leagues. If you’re interested please contact Foz or Lee depending on which state your club/league is in. We will explore how to grow and improve the disc swap, such as adding other state into the mix. Keep those ideas flowing. It's amazing what can be accomplished when we work cooperatively.
Disc must have a Club/League/Event stamp and in New condition.
Deliver your disc and $1.00 per disc (to help with shipping) to your state contact (see below) by Friday February 28th 2014 .
Provide the following information with the disc(s):
Disc Golf Scene name (if different):
Contact Phone Number:
Description of disc(s) provided (Max 2 per organization):
Note Michigan Organizations - Two discs max per organization for this first Oregon <– O –> Michigan Disc Swap as we have many more clubs than Oregon currently.
The discs will be randomly assigned and redistributed to the participating organizations before the Summer season kicks off. (early March)
In Michigan we will have a random drawing event at a local Ann Arbor brewery for those who want to attend in person (details to be announced). I will also try and post pictures and details of the discs / groups participating on Facebook so everyone can see what discs are being swapped and are up for grabs at a league near you….
We hope to swap at least 50 discs in this first exchange so check your club inventory, or personal stash and swap for something most likely no one else in your state has in there bag or on their wall.

Stay warm and enjoy the winter disc golf league rounds - Peace
