Review

Hey everyone,

We had a successful year and I'm looking forward to taking that into next year and making next year better. If you have any thoughts or comments of how things were run, or courses played, or rules, or anything in general, then send me a message here on disc golf scene or on the Facebook page. I'll read everything I'm sent and take it into account when planning next years leagues.

Don't forget the Indoor Putting League starts this Sunday December 3rd at 3 pm.

Thanks,
Ben

Next Year Announcements

A couple of new items today:

1) We are now officially No Bounds DG.

2) We are excited to announce that we have two berths to the State Championships next year. We'll announce next year how you'll be able to win one of the two.

3) Next year the PDGA United States Women Disc Golf Championship will be held in Lansing. I'll be volunteering to help out and would love to have some more members of No Bounds volunteer to help make the tournament a success. It will be in September ... more

Hindsight is 20/20. Earlier today between 12:30-1 pm it was raining and the weather app was showing me rain all day into the night and I felt it was to late to cancel so I figured we'd let it go to a vote. I waited in the rain until 2 and called it because my app was showing me that we were in the green and going into the yellow for the rest of the day into the night for a hard steady rain leaving us with little light to play in if we waited it out or being completely soaked.

Heads up rain

Just a heads up that it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow so if we play bring your umbrella or water proof stuff. Still meet at 1:30 and play at 2. If we cancel it'll be on here and facebook. If we do cancel, the season will be over and the CTP prizes for tomorrow will be kept until Week 1 of the Spring season.

Ace Pool Changes

I have changed how the ace pool is run to make things easier for all. Rules are above in the About section and also posted here:

ACE POOL RULES: As long as the ace pool is less than $150 then any players can pay $2 and win 80% of the pot. Once the ace pool hit's $150 or more than the cost for new players is 10% of the pot to win 80% of it. Or players can pay $5 and win 50% of the pot. You can pay $5 each week until you hit the 10% but if you hit before paying 10% you'd only win 50% ... more
