If only ever to elevate and contribute, amigo. Thanks for all you do, and speed.

Larry Bright Jr.   May 21 at 9:37pm

Thanks for all your help and support. I don't do all this if it wasn't for that.

Dan Cogan   May 22 at 2:12pm

Thank you, Larry! You made it happen... I was glad to lend a hand.

League Finale Tomorrow!!

11 AM start...a champion will be named!!! The trophy will be on hand to go to it's rightful winner. There's quite a few people in the mix, and a league ace or a couple target aces could easily be what decides the championship. Those set up and take down points are crucial as well!! Prize donations will max a 3 total tomorrow so that is not what the deciding factor is in naming a champion for this year.

Also, the ace fund, including tomorrow's buy-ins will be made into CTPS, ... more

I thought the points were based on donations. I see a couple people with multiple points for donations.

Larry Bright Jr.   May 2 at 7:27pm

That's for people who donate more than one prize.

The rain should slow up by 11 and give us a 2-3 hour window before the severe stuff moves in. So we are a go. Targets may be scaled back to make it easier...but the week 3 round is on!!

Target Ace Rules Changes

After getting a league consensus today, the following points will be given for league aces, target aces included:

Target Ace using Multiple Targets on a hole -- 10 points
Target Ace of Drive using one Target -- 15 points
Natural Ace -- 25 points
Target 0 -- 30 points

Target aces will not include the use of the Wheel of Misfortune. If you land on "Subtract -1 stroke" and score a 2, becoming a 1 with the subtracted stroke, that is not a target ace. A target must be used to gai ... more

League Schedule Update -- Easter Sunday

Seeing as Easter is Sunday, April 21st...I've decided to cancel league that day so people can do their usual Easter plans and not miss league. In doing so, I have extended league one more week and added May 5th as the final day of league so we can keep it as a 5 week league as originally planned.

Week 3 will still go on next week as planned with the usual 11 AM start.

Week 2 is tomorrow!!

11 AM start!! I'll be down there about 9:15 to get set up for anyone who wants to lend a hand and earn those extra points!! Don't forget about prize donations too for even more points!!

Changes are in store, and there will be some new targets out there!! Be ready for a few more hazards and bonuses!!!

Week 1 Adjustments: Thomas Norman has -5 points as his ace was a multiple target ace and was worth 10 points, not the original 15 that was given. This gives him 22 points for Week 1. Bruce Shirer has +5 points added, as he was initially given 5 points for the target ace using multiple targets. L ... more

Week 1 Results Have Been Posted!!!

Week 1 results are up!! It looks like Thomas's target ace (15 points) on hole 14 and getting out early to shovel the tee pads (5 points) have given him a jump into first place after week 1!!! There's plenty of ways to earn points each week...come out and lend a hand setting up or taking down or bring some prize donations to earn those bonus points!!!

Target Aces

Looks like I didn't specify points for a target ace where a score of 1 is earned on a hole with the use of a target. I looked back to last year and we did not award points for this...only for a score of 0 when targets are used. I've decided target aces should be worth something. So with 0's (Target assisted Ace or use of Portal and Portal Hoop with a score of 0) will still be worth 30. Natural Aces will be worth 25, and Target Aces (score of 1 with use of a target on DRIVE ONLY) will be worth 15 points.

Larry Bright Jr.   April 3 at 12:53am

After discussion with some other league members, we will allow 5 points for an ace that uses multiple targets to get an "ace" and a score of 1 on a hole. Essentially, a target ace is a birdie with a stroke eraser. When multiple targets are used to get a score of 1 with more than 2 shots used on the hole, then 5 points will be given. This will be discussed at league this week for clarification.

Extra League Points!!

Don't forget....league points can be earned by helping set up and take down each week!! So come out a little early and lend a hand to get some extra league points and increase your chances for that coveted league championship trophy!!

Also, each week there will be a raffle based on bag tag numbers. A few prizes each week be donated by the league. But other prizes donated by league members will help everybody have a chance to walk away with a little something and help the donor earn mo ... more

League Kick-Off next Sunday, March 30th!!!

The 2019 April's Fools league begins next Sunday with an 11 AM start!!! Be ready to have some fun!! We will have target "cheat sheets" for all cards explaining the target rules, as some are good and some are bad. Be ready to play some holes a little differently, as we have a few Mandos to change the way a couple holes are played. OB will be increased on some holes, and there will be plenty of chances for a target ace or target 0 with what we have in store.
