Change in schedule.

Hey Abominable Snowmen . . . I just saw Terry post that he plans to begin his league on Wednesday March 26th, so out of respect for his long standing Wednesday night league our final week will be Wednesday March 19th.

Disc Golf Scene Standings

I just wanted to update everyone and remind them that the standings on disc golf scene are basically the total points earned to date up until right now, but each weeks scores get added and it figures out your next lowest point total to not include. I was very generous in this league to allow people a chance to compete even while missing up to 5 weeks of the 17. I figured we might miss out on some weeks because of weather but you all proved that you wanted to play in just about everything. As dis ... more

Nasty Wind and Weather = Nasty Scores

Everybody shot worse than their handicap by no less than 4 throws. It was a rough night considering the best scratch score on the night was 54 and the best net score was 58 (+4). That is a beatdown. I don't think I have ever felt so much wind in the woods, and I thought it would get better once we hit #4. I was wrong. Here are the updated handicaps for next week, where the current forecast says 22 degrees. It will be like Florida! Tim takes a 1/2 point lead over me in total points. Dust ... more

Another Record was set.

Well it looks like Tim Nelson is on a hot streak. He not only had his second career ace in league in 3 weeks after a few years of no aces but he also set the new record low score after handicap of 46 (-8). It looks like I am quickly losing my lead and depending on attendance next week I might be back a few spots.

Week #11 handicaps

Greg Weber and Dustin Bocek have a couple scorecards in case they are running behind the next two weeks while I am gone. I just ask that Greg or Dustin update Nick Williams on when they will be arriving so they can better pair up groups. You can always send me a message and I can tryt o relay it but it would be best if you just communicate together. THEN I will just need someone to collect the cards, photograph them so that they are legible and I can calculate the scores, edit them, put them on ... more

Wednesday February 5th

I will be there for one more week of league, since I will be leaving early Thursday morning for my road-trip. I will let you guys play the two weeks (February 12th and 19th) I am gone and we can settle up on who owes who what after I return to league the week of February 26th. I will give someone scorecards who intends to play all those two weeks so that you have a way to keep track of scores. If someone can email me or text me a photo of the scorecards I can update the standings, payouts, and c ... more

A couple of firsts tonight . . .

I went out for a round to shovel, salt, and play a round before league. I met up with a couple guys who will be joining in some league fun again in spring. We got to the 8th hole and Dominic decided he would shovel off that tee. He finished shovelling and I stepped up, threw my flick and parked the hole. I walked off the tee and started coughing. That's not surprising as I have probably eaten a couple hundred cough drops in the last week with the cold I have had. I coughed so hard and for long e ... more

Correction . . . Jesse Dixon's score was entered incorrectly adjusting some points and payout. It also caused me to over adjust his handicap this week. He is a (+3) for next week not a (+2).

New Handicaps for Week 9

Lots of fluctuations are happening now that we have moved out of the original 5 round I used to start your handicaps. Keep in mind if youy have been playing below your handicap, you are bound to start an upswing and get more points and paid out some times too, but if you were playing above your handicap, you are likely to see a downturn in your weekly placement and payouts might be tougher to come by. I wish i could have played last night (it has been too long since I have thrown), but I would h ... more

I also forgot to mention that Greg Weber cleared out the $22 ace pool last night with his 5th career ace on Hole #5 last night. Congratulations Greg!!!!

Shoot a round and add or subtract the number in parenthesis for your adjusted score. Anytime your adjusted score is lower than 54 . . . you are shooting better than your trend. Anytime your adjusted score is over 54 means you are shooting worse than your trend.

We will be playing on 1/1!!!!

We will be playing Abominable Snowmen league on Wednesday 1/1 . . . I had taken it out of the schedule but that makes no sense since people will likely be off work and able to play anyway.



I will have a larger announcement about 1/1/2014 most likely tomorrow.

Mike Harrington   December 27 at 12:36am

The announcement is that I will also be running an ace run on 1/1. There will be a $10 entry fee for your first round, REBUYS ARE ALLOWED UP TO 2 ADDITIONAL ROUNDS $7 for the second round, and $5 for the third round. Only 1 round will make you eligibile for the prizes but if you want a second or thi ... more

Handicap Fluctuations

There were some fluctuations in handicaps this past week of up to 2 throws. That will be interesting to see outlasts the others in a season long battle . . . will it be the volatile player who has really good and really bad rounds or will it be the consistent player who is always right around their handicap? Either way tonight looks to be decent. I will be trying to get there by 4 so I can make a pass through the course with a shovel and some salt to ensure good tees for tonight. See you ... more

NEW NEWS

Sorry for my slacking . . . I did not even realize I hadn't written a recap of either of the first two weeks of this league . . . with this being so ground-breaking being handicapped I better pay more attention and mention things as they happen! The first two weeks saw only a couple of rounds under "Par" (after handicap) and the rest above "Par". This week . . . noone "beat" their handicap and quite a few people were well above their "averages". It was a rough week with the single digit tempe ... more
