BRATS Round Recap

FINALLY posted the round from BRATS. My apologies as my life has been CHAOS since trying to get ready for school. Lots of details, but will not bore any of you with that.

Big thank you to Andrew Herron for donating a UV light and batteries for the pre-round CTP. I think that went to Chilly if I recall. Also to Brooke Plantz and Phil Common for donating some discs for the CTPs on the night.

Hot score on the night was a -14 by Boucher/Neal. That was followed with a -12 by Magner/Common, and ... more

Change in Venue

For the this week's round, we have been cleared to play at a private course in the Ann Arbor area. Many of you are familiar with the course called B.R.A.T.S. We are going to take this opportunity to play one of the truly unique courses in SE Michigan, which is located outside the Ann Arbor city limits.

There will be a few guidelines that we have been asked to follow by the Property owners. The biggest one is the presence of masks for check-in process and when we are getting ready to star ... more

If I wanted to join the league, would I need to bring a partner tonight? Or could I show up without one? I’ve never been in a league before.

Nate Krumm   July 15 at 6:15pm

It's random draw doubles. So, you can come by yourself & still be able to play. $5 entry fee, $3 CTP & $2 ace pool ($10 all in)

Glo Recap 06.17

A great night for league with 20 players in attendance. Park was packed with casuals to start the round. Great to see a lot of players out playing. Course opened up a bit after our first nine.

Thank you to all who continue to support the league and WC Glow as a whole. Whether it is buying apparel, discs, or tossing in items for our CTPs, we appreciate seeing you each week and your support allows us to continue to bring opportunities to the disc golf community.

We played the RBW-WRB layout. ... more

Glo Recap 06.10

It was a day yesterday. An intense storm rolled through prior to league, bringing high winds and rain to much of Lower Michigan. Course took it pretty well, there were a few down trees (hole 1 and Hole 9 in particular). Glad to see no major damage to the course occurred. More importantly, glad to see all our friends are safe. Was REALLY great to see all of you out at league last night!

Thank you for bearing with me with some new procedures are in place for checking in. Trying to make sure tha ... more

Rain now, play later

Rain is coming down now. and will until 6:30/6:45. Forecast looks to clear up after that.

Still planning on playing league tonight, and want all of you to be safe. Will understand if you do not want to come out this evening.

We will continue to monitor conditions and refresh the radar every 10-15 min or so.

New discs

Planning to bring Discraft Tour Series discs as well as Innova, which features a new stamp from Nate Krumm. They will be available tomorrow at league. First come, first serve. I should be there around 6 to get some throws in. See you then.

Weather

Alright, which one of you is upsetting the weather gods?

Looks like we may have a chance of some intense weather tomorrow. While I am hoping that it starts and ends early, there is a chance the league is going to be rough tomorrow.

Please take a look at the forecast/current conditions. I would rather play in rain than miss another week, however playing in a storm/lightning is not the smartest idea (although we may have done that once before as well).

Hope you all are well.

Wind around 7-10 is forcasted to be 20+ mph...should be interesting lol

Drew "Orange Andy" Herron   June 9 at 7:08pm

Severe weather between 8-9pm, storm motion is about 40mph and if we get hit, winds 70mph with hail, and perhaps a tornado (not likely, but not zero).

Scott Sprow   June 9 at 7:52pm

So, I think we will go under the impression that we will have to play it by ear a little bit for tomorrow. Please check in here tomorrow, will make a determination about league tomorrow after we see what path this takes and if we are in the line of fire. I REALLY want to see all of you again, but not at the cost of potential injury.

Registration/Check-in Procedures

Alright, I am going to try and keep this simple (it probably will not work).

With league starting up this week, I would like us ALL to keep in mind respect for space and distance from one another. I am sure there are PLENTY of opinions about what is acceptable, I just want us all to keep in mind that not everyone may share your view or level of comfort regarding space.

A few things I would like to ask of you:

1. Payment - Electronic payments are available in the form of:

League Created/Posted

Alright, lets talk about how much we miss playing together!

I miss seeing my DG friends on Wednesday nights. I have not set a start date (not officially anyway) as I kind of want to see how this thing plays out over the next few weeks. One thing is for certain is that we will need to change some things as far as check-in, play, social distance, etc.

I have some ideas in place and have reached out to some other people who run leagues to discuss how they might be making changes too. Any idea ... more
