Glow Disc Golf / Snow Disc Golf all in one!

Well, that was certainly unexpected . . . I had no idea we would wake up to an inch or more of snow when I went to bed last night . . . either I didn't pay attention or the weathermen were just plain wrong. Either way, Scott Slauson helped me out by bringing his sled and salt and shovel since my vehicle was filled with discs, trophies, lizard prizes, etc . . . and we played a round before league and shovelled and salted the teepads so we would have at least decent conditions tonight.

Errors in my scoring

There were two errors in my scoring because I gave Brian Williams and Brian Allender the wrong scores. This mildly affected the payouts and the standings for the week and also for the season. I will make sure everyone is up to date on the current standings including dropped weeks after tomorrow night. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for catching the mistake Brian.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS WEEK!

We will not only be playing the normal 18 holes this week . . . we will also be playing 3 additional holes (which were added today) which will be used as permanent winter holes. Since 1, 15, and 18 interfere with the sledding hill (or vice versa) those baskets will be coming out and will be moved down to the new holes (played after Hole #12 and before Hole #13) for the entire winter. We cleaned up all of the fairways, cut down the trees and low branches that impeded the fairways, added gravel an ... more

Current Adjusted Standings

Rather than update everyone on who did what this week I figured it was time to show you where you all stand after the 3 dropped week adjustment. In Open: Scott Slauson has 51 points but is dropping only 5 points to be at 46. TJ Webber has 56.5 points but is dropping 12.5 points to be at 44. I am currently at 39.5 points but am dropping 8 to be at 31.5 Bob Bawden is at 37 points but only dropping 6.5 to be at 30.5. Drew Retherford is at 31.5 points but is dropping only 2 to be at 29.5.

ROLLING START THIS WEEK between 6:00-7:00 PM.

OK . . . 7:00 PM start stands for this week since I am not sure how many people will get this message in time . . . BUT I will allow anyone who wants to play between 6:00-7:00 PM to show up and form a group of 3-5 people and you can play early. It will be dark because of daylight savings time so I feel this would not be an unfair advantage to anyone playing between 6:00-7:00 PM. I will be going out at 7:00 PM regardless of who shows up early so I would appreciate at least 1 person to play with m ... more

EARLIER START TIME????

I started a poll on the league info page at this link https://www.facebook.com/groups/562766197099352/621554661220505/?notif_t=likeif you do not have facebook, please respond with a comment here. Since daylight savings time is this sunday should we move the start time up to 6 PM for this and all future weeks? 6:30 PM or keep the start time at 7:00 PM still?



Keep in mind the Packers will be crushing the Bears by the time we finish this week regardless of when we start but the game does begin at 7:40 so if we moved up to 6 we might only miss the first 5-10 minutes of the game.

Week #8 . . . 4 weeks left to make up points!

We still had 20 people this week despite the cooler temperatures. We had another ace by Chad Niezgoda who hit #16 (with a Glow Wizard he bought from me last week . . . Get them now before the price goes up!!!!). This was his first league ace so he was excited to take home some cash. We also had an impromptu costume contest this week. . . it was an idea that came to me earlier in the day and while I feel like it may have been short notice I couldn't pass up the chance at offering up something spe ... more

Lucky # 21

21 people came to league this week on October 21st. It felt like 21 degrees out but was actually in the mid to upper 30's. I love that people are so dedicated to league that most come regardless of conditions. In Open . . . I came back with low expectations after a weekend away at Highbridge Hills where I definitely put some strain on my already aching elbow and shoulder. I was surprised I was able to shoot (-11) let alone win the division considering the discrepancy between the top two play ... more

$78 ace pool going into tonight

If attendance keeps up as it has been the ace pool will be over $100 for tonight's round. Come on out for your chance at some cash!!! 7PM start time as usual and I will be out there this afternoon selling discs and merchandise so check in early if you are around.

Week #5 was not Weak!!!

We hit another record high attendance for this glow league with 29 people this week. I didn't think we would hit a high but a bunch of people showed up just before we headed out to get in on the Glow Throwing fun. Again no ace was hit so the pot has built up to $78. How awesome would a $100 glow ace be???? I know I want one! In Open we saw another (-14) as a top score, but this week it was Scott Slauson. TJ Webber maintains a 3 point lead (technically only because he played one more week t ... more

Oh Yes . . . TJ Webber found one of the lizards on #4. I know another one was missing so it must have been found by a casual player. I am headed out there tomorrow to see if I can find the other ones I put out there or if someone else has walked off with them.

Week #4 recap

News from this week . . . 1 of the glow lizards was found . . . albeit after the round was completed. I saw a crowd of 4 black lights scouring the landscape for anything that might be a lizard and while the intent was for these to be found during the course of play . . . I guess I will have to allow the find and any future finds that come to me before I leave the course. I will say this . . . it will be tough to find these lizards without a black light! I am not saying this because I have a b ... more

Another Beautiful Night Tonight

The weather is looking to be ideal again tonight . . . we will kick off the tee times at 7:00 PM again with a couple groups getting a head start to set the lights on the baskets prior to the rest of the group starting. I promise to put at least one of the glow in the dark lizards on the course tonight .. . get your blacklights out and keep a keen eye out for those little lizards!!! I have decided whoever finds a lizard . . . will get a spin of the wheel of discfortune. Hold onto the lizard un ... more

Let There Be Light(s)!!!!

Well, it seems that most people were in favor of the LED tap lights we used this week for league. I will continue to use them this season foiscin In The Dark since they light up the chains better and the light doesn't ever get in your eyes either. I am going to experiment with a way to put two lights on each basket attached to something that can be somewhat secured to ensure these do not get walked off with. I may not get this accomplished by the end of Discin In The Dark, but it could be an imp ... more

Discin In The Dark Week 3 - The Light Ages

I am bringing along the LED Tap Lights I bought to test out with league this week. I would like to try them and would like your feedback if you feel this is a better approach to lighting the basket than the glowsticks. These lights are fairly inexpensive but obviously I do not want them to get stolen or damaged. There are a few possibilities on how to handle this, but I first would like to hear your feelings on these lights before I make this into a bigger deal than it needs to be. I will be out ... more

Late League News

I apologize but I finally got all caught up on my other work (after being gone for a 4 day weekend of disc golf and golf). I travelled north through Green Bay to play a couple courses I have been wanting to play for a while. There was another course in NC WI that I wanted to hit before heading through Rhinelander, Wausau, to Wautoma where my golf outing was. In the end I was able to hit 10 courses . . . 3 in MI, 7 in WI with only 4 of those courses currently listed. I am still working on my q ... more

Playing so many courses not only in the north woods of Wisconsin but up and down the east coast as well this must be taking up all your free time and They yust keep adding more ( poor Mike) its a hard life in the name of discoligy , sometimes you yust "chain out " but you can't let it turn you into a " basket " case , you yust need to find a "fair way " ( o.k. I need to stop )

September 16th

Scott Slauson will be your league director this upcoming Monday as I am unsure if I can make it from Wautoma back to Valley View in time for league. If I do make it and can play a quick round to try and catch up to a group . . . otherwise you might find me in the parking lot by the time you finish your rounds. I will have payouts from previous weeks and possibly even some new merchandise. I apologize in advance if I am unable to make it, but Scott should have no problems since he has run a few leagues for me in the past. I will see you all at some point on Monday.

Discin In The Dark REVAMPED for 2013

Well . . . Labor Day has passed and for me that marks the beginning of glow season . . . where I play as many if not more glow rounds than I do daytime rounds. Unless I enter a tournament I usually leave the lights taped on my discs even. Discin In The Dark 2012 was my first venture into running leagues. To my knowledge I had never heard of an organized glow league, although I had played in a few casual get-togethers with people to play glow in the past. We averaged 17 people in that 12 week ... more

Glow season is approaching quickly.

Wrapping up one of my leagues next week and the other in just two weeks seems like an incredibly good decision . . . since it is virtually dark by 8:00 PM right now. We lose 2 minutes of daylight per day right now and it will soon be upon us that it is dark by 7:00. While the first couple holes that we play might end up in "dusk' like conditions for the first few holes. . . the rest of the round will be dark and the lights or glow sticks will be necessary. I have plans to permanently attach s ... more
