This is a revamped version of the Manic Mondays we have been enjoying this spring. I have added 3 formats to the normal 10 weeks of play and allowed for one format to be played twice as determined by the Dealer's Choice location on the wheel. Week 1 will be regular singles, Week 2-9 will be determined by the sping of the Wheel of Disc-fortune, and Week 10 will be double points singles. THEN Week 11 and 12 will be a match play format. You will play your heart out for 10 weeks to try and get ...

Manic Mondays has completed for 2013

It started out as an idea to try some different formats during disc golf leagues in season 1 (Spring). Then I decided to take the ideas to a whole new level in Summer. I went from 5 formats to 10 formats . . . and I even added Match Play as an additional format to settle who the winners were. Not only did you need to play 6 weeks of the league . . . you also needed to finish in the top 8 in your division . . . then you needed to beat others in head to head matchups in order to take home the divi ... more

Match Play Finals and Consolation matches

Well everyone . . . we already have one divisional winner decided because they would have been unable to play their match tomorrow. I have the trophies all put together and ready for you to customize them again . . . I hope to see some of you who have already been knocked out of the Match Play Finals tomorrow to spectate and put the pressure on the finalists. I do not want noise or heckling but I want extra eyes on everyone to make them feel like they are in a big tournament. That will truly dec ... more

First (and Second) Round of Match Play Playoffs

ROUND 1 OPEN All of the top seeds won each match leaving the #1 seed to play the #2 seed for the divisional win. The #1 seed Scott Slauson defeated the #8 seed Dustin Skorupinski by a narrow margin. Dustin shot his best league round in match play which shows he rose to the occasion and focussed on playing his best. Scott won the match 3 and 2 (meaning he was up 3 holes with only 2 hole to play). The #4 seed Joel Kamoske defeated me (the #5 seed) fairly easily winning 4 and 3. Joel was up ... more

A few glitches

Well there were a few glitches and circumstances that occurred on this first attempt at making Match Play a factor in Manic Mondays. I will learn from these issues and make sure it is better planned out for next year. 1) One person could not come which lead to a forfeit also causing a need to alter my already figured out payouts. 2) One match did not completely understand the scoring. They thought someone had won the match because one person had a better score but in fact they were tied afte ... more

1, 3 and 10 baskets have moved long. What to do if #13 is broken!

In full disclosure for our matches tomorrow . . . Baskets #1, 3 and 10 have all been moved long. Everything else has stayed in the same position. I fixed up the basket on #13 temporarily and I just hope people can be respectful for 48 hours). If Hole #13 is broken and unacceptable for putting . . . each match can determine what they want to do . . . play an additional hole instead of 13, play the basket as is, play if it hits chains it counts . . . it does not matter as long as both of you are i ... more

The End of the Beginning

Well . . . 10 weeks have passed and we have ended the beginning of this league. This is just like any other league or sporting event that has qualifying and a bracket placement based on how you qualified. Basically . .. everyone played 10 hard weeks to fight for points which determine who you play in the Match Play. These points determine where you are placed in your division. The only difference between this league and any other event is that you needed to play 6 weeks (minimum) to qualify ... more

Cost for each round of Match Play will be $6 (or $7) because $4 will go to payout (YOU WIN YOUR MATCH YOU TAKE HE MONEY), $1 to the course funds, $1 to divisional trophies and prizes, and $1 goes to the Optional Ace Pool.

Double Points Singles, Match Play, and the Ace Pool

Monday August 12th will be the 10th and final week of Manic Mondays Divisional formats before we move into Match Play to decide the divisional placement.



If the ace pool is not hit I will be breaking it up by division and giving away a portion of the money to each division. I do not want to carry the ace pool money into the match play because it is likely some of those who don't make the match play will not be attending those weeks. I feel like the Match Play weeks could have their own ace pool.

Stableford: The beginning of the end

The Stableford format is a unique format in that it isn't your overall score that determines how you finish on the night. . . it is points earned from each individual hole. It is one instance where an inconsistent player can do well as long as they capitalize on the birdie and ace chances. Since there were no aces it came down to who was slightly more aggressive to really go for that one putt that made the difference. There were also a couple instances where one person (with a higher score) actu ... more

CTP Week

We had a guest spinner of the wheel of disc-fortune tonight. Steve Taylor took a few spins on the wheel and finally ended on CTP Week. That means next week is Stableford and Week #10 is DOUBLE POINTS SINGLES. You do not want to miss the last week if you are jockeying for position in the bracket for the Match Play portion of the league. Just remember anyone who makes the Match Play Bracket can win their entire division. Even if you are the 8 seed you can take down the top spot, you just have to ... more

CTP Week or Stableford . . . that is the question

We have one more spin of the wheel this week and it will determine if we play CTP or Stableford this week and the other format will be played next week in week 9. Week 10 will be the last jockeying for position with DOUBLE POINTS Singles so you do not want to miss that week because it will determine your fate in the bracket for the Match Play in Weeks 11 and 12. Keep in mind even if you do not make it into the bracket, you can still attend league on August 12th and August 19th . . . we will p ... more

Dealer's Choice Decided by Scott Slauson

The first few spins of the wheel were done by different people and all landed on events we have already played. Finally on the 4th spin Scott Slauson landed on Dealer's Choice. He decided to make the Double Points week be skins game. I heard him later doubting his decision and thought he should have done Alternate Tees instead. Once he called it out, it was decided however so Skins Game it was. I figured it would have been Skins Game, CTP week, or Alternate Tees as those seem to be highly embrac ... more

Week #7 Wheel Of Disc-Fortune returns

I am headed home tomorrow after spending Saturday and Sunday playing and trying to get one of my business ventures off the ground. I have been able to accomplish both, 6 courses played, and one business meeting handled. I am hopeful it will turn into something for this year when I had just about written off 2013. I am excited for the opportunity to promote disc golf and the event should be a lot of fun to run also. Wish me luck in getting the details ironed out quickly! The Wheel of DIsc-Fort ... more

Alternate Tees

I posted a question on facebook about this format and I would like your feedback. Please visit and vote! https://www.facebook.com/events/575034405883912/ As for this weeks recap . . . In Open we had a tie at the top (slightly off of the normal winner scores) with Joel Kamoske and Dave Olson tying for the win at (-10). Joel went on to win the CTP playoff. TJ Webber, Scott Slauson, and Bob Bawden all tied with (-9) to take the last of the cash. In Intermediate we had Chris Daskam with a r ... more

It will depend on how many are in each flight . . . If we get 8 people who qualify there will possibly be 2 matches on each night with 1 v 8 2 v 7 3 v 6 4 v 5 with the winners playing the other winners and the losers playing the other losers. It will be just like the NCAA bracket . . . but if we onl ... more

For those not making the bracket . . . I have come up with a handicap system that will allow anyone to compete against anyone by throws being added as a handicap. It will be an interesting experiment that might even turn into a full handicap league or even a full handicap match play league. You win your match, you get paid!

Week #6 (7/15) ALTERNATE TEES

I have re-marked all of the alternate tees on the course so people can practice the throws this weekend if they desire. I have a map that I can send you and you can print it out if you would like. Otherwise you can find them on your own using these descriptions. I changed a couple from where they were at the beginning because I found better spots. #1) Behind and to the left of the metal bench near #1 tee #2) ON the pavement on the southeast corner of the pumphouse building #3) On the path 1 ... more

Week 5 revisited

Well we had a nice ace pool going this week after 4 weeks of noone hitting an ace and Greg Weber decided it was his turn. He took home $90, but I owe him another $1 because I had not written down one persons entry fee. Congratulations Greg! In Open.. . . 1 disc night seemed to play about a throw or two harder than a normal night. We had Scott Slauson defeat Joel Kamoske (-11) in a playoff to take first and second this week. Then followed a few shots behind them were Brad Weber and TJ Webber w ... more

$70 Ace Pool on 7/8

The ace pool is again rising . . . who will be coming out and playing for points and who will be playing for the ace pool. It would be one heck of a conundrum if we hit CTP week this week because it would be a tough decision to go for the CTP's or just run for aces. I hit the largest ace pool I can remember at Terrys Wednesday league this past spring ($222) and I was running at aces the whole time so it obviously worked. Can you figure out the difference in technique of running for aces rather t ... more

PUTTERS ONLY TONIGHT/Mulch Update

So tonight was Putters Only . . . some people love it some people hate it and it is clear that some people know how to throw putters different ways since their scores were at or above their normal average while others suffered a tough night. In Open we had Joel Kamoske shooting (-12) to take home top cash tonight. There was a tie between Brad Weber and Scott Slauson at (-10) but Scott also took home the top Open CTP prize. I shot a (-9) which I am thrilled with considering I was only -1 throu ... more

Skins Game (A popular format), MULCH, and No ALT. Tees this week again

The Skins Game seemed to be a very popular format. I found it interesting that it actually caused people to cheer for one another from time to time to tie and push the skin to the next hole. We actually had a group watch our Hole #7 because they knew 7 skins were on the line. In Open I had the hot round of the night with (-12) and got $7.75 in skin money. Scott Slauson also got $7.75 in skin money for his (-11) because he was in the other group. Brad Weber got $2.50 in skins with a solid (-1 ... more

Pat Brah will be checking people in tomorrow

Hello everyone . . . I have a golf outing at 12 on Monday. I hope to be done by 4:30 so I can head right to league. If I am running late Pat Brah will check people in and take your entry fee for me. I will be there by 6:00 for sure. The wheel will be spun by 5:45 at the latest so you all know what you are playing. I will be in touch with Pat to ensure everything goes smooth on checkin but I hope to be there by no later than 5:30 but it is all dependent on how long the golf outing takes me.

There were a couple errors so I reposted this . . .

Well . . . this new and experimental format was met with mixed reviews . . . I personally thought we would have a whole lot more action on the points. I also thought that almost everyone would get some points . . . unfortunately I was one of the people who got blanked so I know how "NOT FUN" this format was for many of you. Some of it may have been the wind and some of it may have been the awkward distances of 100-125'. Either way I think we need to do some tweaking of the format to make sure it ... more

Also the way you are entered into the leaderboard is by the points you earned not score since we did not finish any holes.

Thanks Nick . . . I had fun with it even though I didn't hit anything . . . however I also realize it doesn't feel like a disc golf round even because there was no score or anything.

Week #2

Just in case either format gets spun on the wheel tomorrow . . . I painted Alternate Tees as well as the Ace Race tees. I will have to make sure those areas are easy to find possibly even 8 weeks from now but I plan to draw up an Map to show people where these tees are. For right now you are free to find the tees and practice but please be courteous to other disc golfers playing the normal course as well as non disc golf walkers because they will not be accustomed to seeing us in some of these t ... more

Week 1

Well, we kicked off Manic Mondays Summer Edition with a beautiful night for disc golf. 26 people were in attendance. No Ace was hit so there will be $26 in the Ace Pool next Monday. We saw a handful of people move up because of my new way of grouping people . . . the PDGA rating system just does not work at Valley View. I went with scoring average as the way to place people in divisions. Open should be averaging (-8) or better. Intermediate should be shooting (-4) to (-8). Recreational should ... more

Manic Mondays Summer 2013

The Spring Manic Mondays league was so well attended and people kept providing more good input I decided to keep the format the same for this league with randomized weekly formats. I stepped it up a notch, however, adding 3 other formats (Skins Game, Alternate Tees, and an Ace Race). Then to top it off I added 2 more weeks of league focussed on an awesome format called Match Play. Basically if you qualify with a minimum # of weeks played (and you finish in the top 8 points winners) you will be e ... more
