Project Johnson is GO
Hey kids. We're getting ready for our league season, but before we finalize all the details I just wanted to let you know about a project that Alex, Scott, Chad, Cory and myself have been working on for the past 18 months. Some of you have noticed we play occasionally at Johnson Park. Johnson Park, you also may have noticed, has no baskets or tee pads. For the last 18 months, we've been working with the Kent County Parks Department on resolving that issue. We have the Green Light to ... more
Hey kids. We're getting ready for our league season, but before we finalize all the details I just wanted to let you know about a project that Alex, Scott, Chad, Cory and myself have been working on for the past 18 months.
Some of you have noticed we play occasionally at Johnson Park. Johnson Park, you also may have noticed, has no baskets or tee pads. For the last 18 months, we've been working with the Kent County Parks Department on resolving that issue. We have the Green Light to do it, now all we need is the supplies.
We have set up a Indiegogo to help raise money for Project Johnson, the name of our effort. You can find all the details there. If you can give money or give a share, every little bit helps. Let all your friends know. We have some really cool perks we're giving to certain tier donors too including Mini's, Hoodie's, Hat's and Limited Edition discs. We, as a community, can restore Johnson Park back to it's former glory. Game the F**k On!

Sep 6 @ 5:00pm : Earl W. Brewer Park - South Course (Double Points Championship Event)
Random Flip Doubles: All entrants will flip for partners. If there is a odd amount of entries, one player will be permitted to play Traditional "California" Rules (one mulligan per hole). Teams choose their shot.
Modified "California Rules": Players are limited to 5 mulligans per round of 18, only one mulligan per hole. You MUST play your mulligan shot.
Event Scoring: All scoring is done to aggragate (Total amount of shots), regardless of the courses listed par. Lamar Park will be played twice thru to make 18 holes. All holes at Lamar, Earl W. Brewer, Jaycee, Old Farm and Cascade are considered to be Par 3's by the event administrators, thus making par at all courses 54. Fallasburg Park will be scored as marked. All players will be expected to play from the regular tees unless otherwise specified. All local rules, including Mandatory Lines (Mandos) and Out Of Bounds will be used. A specific list of all objects in question will be explained at the Players Meeting (making attendance almost mandatory).
Prize Money Payouts: 90% weekly payback. You must pay to play! First Place: 50% of pool. Second Place: 25% of pool. Third Place: 15% of pool. If a tie exists for first place, players CAN play sudden death beginning on Hole 1 until there is a winner. Likewise, tied players can agree to split the pool. Ties for Second and Third place will automatically split their portion of the pool. Any and all unclaimed money carries over to the Championship prize pack pool. No payouts until all competitors complete their rounds. Your Scorecard must be signed by at least one of your playing partners. The remaining 10% will go into the season ending championship prize pack for the Top 3 competitors.
Championship Scoring: A championship prize package (TBA) will be offered to the top three players at the end of the season. All events are based on a set point + entries point format.
1st: 40 + Entries
2nd: 35 + Entries
3rd: 30 + Entries
4th: 25 + Entries
5th: 24 + Entries
6th: 23 + Entries
7th: 22 + Entries
8th: 21 + Entries
9th: 20 + Entries
10th: 19 + Entries
All subsequent positions until 27th will go in sequential order. 28th and beyond will receive "Entrant Points" equal to the amount of entries, regardless of finishing position. Entries is equal to the total amount of competitors for the particular event. This is to reward those who show up every week as well as those who place well against bigger fields. In Random Flip Doubles events, points will be awarded to both members of the teams and entrants will be the amount of total competitors. The Double Points Championship Event will double the base points, not the entrant points.
ALL EVENTS have been checked against registered events on Disc Golf Scene for clashes with other registered tournaments at the particular parks. If for whatever reason a course is unavailable for play, a alternate course will be named Seven days before the event weekend. We plan to upload scores to DGS, so don't forget to like our club. We encourage everyone to help get people from place to place. Be polite and ask if you need a ride well in advance and don't be cheap...offer them gas money. GRDGU! asks that you respect the course, patrons, fellow players, neighbors and local ordinances at every course you play. Good sportsmanship and proper etiquette is required at all GRDGU! events. You are the face of Disc Golf in the Greater Grand Rapids area, being ignorant or disrespectful to other park goers only hurts the game. This is a fun game and the league is designed for fun, so don't be the douche that wrecks it for everyone. Finally, know your limits and enjoy yourself. If you have any questions feel free to contact Alex Schackow (616-560-0264), Chadwick Smith or Brandon Braisted (brokentv71atGmail.com). Happy Throwing.
