Lindenwood July 16, 2012 Epilogue
Like anything, the goal is to try to improve. Walk the walk and Talk the talk.
Well let us see how I did:
What I said:
“I expect scores for the Top Fifty rated players to be 6 under or better”.Maybe for the winners of the Open Divisions; the RCF top 100 were closer to par. The wind and the lack of play contributed to this.
“Hole 6 is an ace run…….to be eligible for stardom, fame and perhaps a few dollars if any players in your group are in the 51 club.” Ace on hole 6! I called it!
Thankfully because I also said this:
“SKINS”Thankfully, there were 2 aces, I blew the Skins deal and did not get done, I opted out the easy way out paying out the aces as the skin winners. In the future, a Skins team will need to volunteer to run the skins and skin the scorecards to make that work.
“I have spread word to all the great women golfers that this tourney”
It is what it is; the next women’s tourney I will try to feature is the women’s GDT. I hope to able to better connect and support the women who are playing.
“I found on the RCF’s most excellent weekly update”If you do not subscribe yet; you have to get on this list, it currently is the best event info source in the St. Louis Region and we will work to make it better.
“I will make some of the areas OB’s.”
I believe the strings were successful, and not too BS’ish. I think the scores reflect that for now, no more string is required for difficulty. However separating 16 and 15 is possible as is marking hole 13 by the gate and behind the basket for the Upcoming Bluebird Series.
“I will have the honorable Ted Spies inject a scorecard into this thread”
“(I honestly don’t know who calls these names as I am making it up as I go!)
I did not make enough score cards, I mean I did but I got carried away with Technical Birdie Sector, Arming Sector, Technical Gut-Check Sector! Absolute genius but I gave to many away. I think I may just make a tourney scorecard/course description to hand out at the players meeting and use stock cards.
While I am at it, I had three more issues where I scored low:
The tee pads could have been marked better.
And finally, these two combined grave underestimates: to play in the tourney and to insure the water was distributed throughout the course. Paving my own path; a natural consequence (DNF).
Enough said; if you like to do a little part, it would go a long way, pick your tourney, call the TD, and tell him you can help. We are growing, and the events are getting better and better because of this simple process that makes you feel good too.
Finally our SPONSORS:
We cannot hold these events, make money to improve our courses and have nice CTP packages and competitive rewards without your sponsors:
Gateway Disc Golf sent a box of Evolution Karmas to distribute to the winners of each card after the first round. This disc served the winner of the Open division Jim Misuraca very well. In fact, on Friday, he was my doubles partner. Raving about his new go to disc that turns out it to be the Karma! Thanks Gateway! Looks like the Karma is good!
Jimmie Johns Sub Shop – Donated a $20 gift card. A big Thank You to Corey O’Brien he was a big help at the tourney, and was able to secure this gift card.
