Alright I will bite.

I like Saturdays around noon or one.
Sundays are church, family and football for lots of people.
Might increase attendance a bit.

I also like just staying in the Louisville area myself. IQ, CV and SL
are more than enough of a rotation.

Why not make a few of them rated leagues? Those are fun

Do a points series. Let's have the club give away CTP's at every event.
Let's buy a nice basket to raffle off at the end for a club fundraiser.
We should always be doing a basket raffle. One it raises money for the club
and two it puts better baskets in our community.

I hope the other three leagues will contribute to a starter ace fund like in years past.

Other than that thanks Mike for doing this again. I don't make a lot of leagues but it
certainly helps build our disc golf community.

Anyone else ?

Either day is fine for me. I like the idea of every other week being singles that we've done recently. CV, SL, and IRQ work well.
2 PM works and will be consistent from previous years while still allowing church folk to play. No handicapping for anyone imo.

Anyone like playing in the morning? Im a 9 AM kinda guy.

Here are some input i'm liking. Possible Saturday, every other week singles round ( nice to know what your own game is like ) & keeping the start time at 2 ( gives time for road crews to make it safe for us to travel )

These are all just thought. Not setting anything in stone till some time in November

Is Buffalo not going in the rotation this year?

I agree with Sammy about keeping it mainly in the Louisville area at IQ, CV, SL and maybe even including Jim's place in that also. That said, I think it is nice to make the occasional trip to some of the other area courses like Buffalo, Otter, Muldraugh, and Radcliff. But that's just my opinion.

Here is a look at last seasons schedule

http://img341.imageshack.us/img341/5822/attachmentdj.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/341/attachmentdj.jpg/)

We will be starting earlier by 1 week & this year NO Christmas or New Years brake

How did you all feel about this schedule & courses ?
NOTE late season the bridge was out so no IN courses really got played till late in the rotation.

Jims will be played twice this season already confirmed that with Jim

I would like to play ever course twice. Once as doubles & once as singles

Here is a draft of what i'm thinking on the schedule

18 weeks

1 I.Q.
2 C.V.
3 S.L.
4 O.C.
5 JIMS.
6 B.T.
7 I.Q.
8 C.V.
9 S.L.
10 JIMS
11 O.C.
12 I.Q
13 C.V.
14 S.L.
15 B.T
16 I.Q.
17 C.V.
18 S.L

singles every other week
It all works out with ever course being played singles & doubles

JUST A DRAFT

Wow that looks pretty fun!

I agree with Sam. The more you keep it local, the more attendance you should have. Lets face it, the odds are in your favor.

As much as I like buffalo am equally liking the SL addition. That park makes me a better person.

Maybe you could add the fun farm into your rotaion. It seems forgotten.

So sad.

Beautiful course!

Funny you say that about Buffalo trace. Had the most players at that course then any other course on the schedule last year.

Yeah the Fun Farm was in the schedule last year & i was debating on what courses to dump from the schedule this year. Since you have to pay $5.oo just to get in & then pay $6 or $7.oo to play the league fee i figured that would be the 1st to go. I agree i enjoy playing that course.

QUESTION: If i was to drop any 1 course on my draft so we could play Fun Farm what course would it be O.C. or B.T. ? open to anyone to answer

Fun farm is weak. Not maintained well at all and the guy running it is a douche.

Mike_D
09-13-2012, 09:45 AM
I agree about F.F. not being maintained very well for a pay to play course. Thus why i'm not going to add it & stick with what i got.

I think the rough draft i have is a very good schedule.

now do you play Sat or Sun at 2pm ?





Anyone see any changes they would suggest ?

Mike_D
09-15-2012, 08:53 AM
Any more suggestions

Mike_D
09-19-2012, 08:30 PM
So i'm liking the rough draft schedule & the every other week singles. That being said lets keep it Sundays at 2pm. Don't want to change to much at once.

Any dislikes on the every other week played as singles or the schedule ?

Adam

I think that sounds good Mike. We'll also have a good sized ace pool to start the Winter League off with.

I & i know the players out there like the sound of that.

Schedule and format look great...would be nice to play Saturdays instead of Sundays...but I could see the schedule get messy come Jan/Feb with ice bowls and such

Sundays are tough for me but so are Saturdays :)
Most importantly Mike ----- Thanks for running this again.
Good times!

Mike_D

OK the cons of each day

Sat college football, some people work & tournaments
Sun Pro football & maybe after church travel time

I may have missed some cons for each day

Nothing is final till November so i'm still open to any & all suggestions.
It's not about what i want, it's all about what you all what. I know i can't make everyone happy but this is close.


THANKS

Mike_D

OK 5 days left till i make things final.

As of now with the input i have gotten we will be playing on Saturdays at 2pm & we could be starting as soon as November 24th ( would start the 17th BUT the Southern I.N. Classic is then )

Alternating doubles / singles

IF you have input PLEASE speak up now

36 hours & counting down to the SNOW GLOBE winter league schedule to be finalized.

As of right now it will start at I.Q. on Saturday, November 24th doubles pro / am & every other week is single pro & am divisions

I think Sundays would be a better day to play on if you have a 2 pm start people can still make it to church and to the round and there are alot of us who have to work Saturdays and wont be able to make it out without missing a day of pay. That's just my two cents

Sundays mess with football

Justin
10-31-2012, 08:40 PM
