Hey, I had a thought. The little local paper posts the weekly results of local golf and bowling leagues. I wondered what you would think about posting the weekly results of the disc golf league. Just a thought. Take it or leave it.

Hey everyone! We here at Knollwood are trying to raise money for merchandise to sell for our cleanup and improvement efforts. Follow the link at the bottom of this message for a full description, a short video presentation, and the opportunity to either donate, or share my message with others.
I have just heard that the director of the City of Kalamazoo Parks department has resigned, so we have a new opportunity to truly change the image of Knollwood.

Anybody playing a round after trick or treating this year?
Chris Smith October 23, 2012 at 11:48pm
I am sure that between the two of us, we can cover all of the Saturdays.

Alright, More details on this league for you guys. Cost: Free Prizes: Top person(s) will be awarded discs of choice. I will pay out 10th of the field plus 1. so 1-9 players = 1st only. 10-19 = 2 places, and so forth. Details: This league is going to be free, with prize provided by yours truly. As I am going to turn you all into my guinea pigs. One division. I am testing out a new handicap system. Handicap System: For the first 3 weeks, I am going to use your average score, plus ... more
Alright, More details on this league for you guys.
Prizes: Top person(s) will be awarded discs of choice. I will pay out 10th of the field plus 1. so 1-9 players = 1st only. 10-19 = 2 places, and so forth.
Details: This league is going to be free, with prize provided by yours truly. As I am going to turn you all into my guinea pigs. One division. I am testing out a new handicap system.
Handicap System: For the first 3 weeks, I am going to use your average score, plus 9 strokes (To make up for the 24 hole layout vs the 21) from the summer league. Handicap will be based on even par. Once you have 3 weeks in, Your average will only count the last 3 rounds you have played. This is to allow for peoples average to reflect the most current level of skill as we all drop and rise in skill level on a weekly basis (At least I do =P)
Point system: You will be placed by adjusted score (score +/- Handicap). You will get points based on the place you finished. 1 for 1st, 2 for 2nd and so forth. The goal will be to have the lowest point total at the end of the 9 weeks. We will be dropping the 3 worse scores, and you have to have 6 weeks in to qualify for prize.
In summary whats this mean for you as the player?
Just show up and play, turn your scores in as normal and I will handle the rest.
I will need a volunteer to be willing to collect score cards and drop them off at my house any day that my wife might miss. (Essentially a back up if she is busy)

pretty sure im out but i do know a few thinkin bout it i will tell them to post or get left behind
Patrick Fulkerson October 22, 2012 at 2:55pm
There is 6 of you total, (4 of which posted here). How about a short 9 week season to see the type of turn out you guys generate. If you guys want scores posted to keep track of how your doing. I will get something up. Start November 3rd (Saturday) - last week on Dec 29th. 10am start time?
If this works out well, We can of course extend the time, or change the day/time as needed. This gives you guys a foundation to start with. This 9 week trail will be completely free, to see how much interest there really is.

My ever so observant husband has pointed out that Saturday mornings should work for me as well
Eric Garnaat October 16, 2012 at 12:03pm
The morning/evening thing won't work because there won't be enough daylight for the evening round. The shortest day has sunset at 5:04pm.
Chris Smith October 16, 2012 at 1:42am
I would play in a winter league. Why not stick with what works? We could do the Tuesday morning/evening routine.
Eric Garnaat October 15, 2012 at 1:36pm
I can't make weekday mornings because of work. I think saturday morning would work best for me. maybe 10am
I wouldn't mind if the length of the league ran form November through March but some people might prefer a shorter season.
**Please post if you have any interest or else this may not happen.
Larissa Fulkerson October 15, 2012 at 12:26pm
I would love to play in a winter league. I would prefer mornings (9 or 10) and maybe Wednesday or Thursday. Weekends are pretty much out of the question for me because of my work schedule the next 2 months.
Patrick Fulkerson October 15, 2012 at 1:21am
So roughly 8 or more of you guys have approached me about a Winter league.
I personally do not play in the winter. If their is enough interest I will happily keep scores posted for you guys on the scene and such. Even if their is not that many of you. We should work out a day and time for all you winter golfers to get together and keep golfing!
Post here if your interested in a winter league, and your preferred day of week and time to play. So we can at least get a idea as to when you guys should gather to play.

I have to work at 4:30. Depending on when I get done I might swing by and see if people show up.
