Let's hope some disc golfer doesn't end up in one of those sink holes like at the ball golf course in Waterloo

I usually can't get to the updates until the weekend...I run a league at Carrollton on Mondays and a league at Endicott on Wednesdays. Thursdays are my day off from DG, but sometimes I knock it out anyways. I am going to the Blues game tonight, so no such luck. Sorry for the delays, but it is what it is...

Here are the standings after Week 1...

No one hit an ACE, so it should be up over $100 for the coming week. The hot score was -11 from Pat & Rob. I really thought there would be a score a couple of strokes better, but I am not going to complain. The layout stays the same for Week 2. The only difference is that the Bean House Bonus will be making a return! There will be a $10 Gift Certificate FREE CTP on Hole 10A. The Bean House is the local watering hole that a bunch of leaguers go to after they finish the round. Mmmm...MARGARITAS!

This is a bit ahead of schedule, but I thought I would release the info anyways...

After this Tuesday, any of the "trustees" with a key can move baskets at will. This is definitely one aspect of league that I would appreciate help with. Thanks!

Tough round yesterday w/o the 40mph wind gusts we've become used to

THis will be the first league round (other than the Battle at the Barracks) I've ever played w/ snow on the ground. Sounds cool. Just for planning purposes, we are being men & playing Tues league regardless of snow on the ground, right?

I will have the results from Week 2 posted later today. In the meantime, I have some updates/news about tomorrow...

- JB Doubles League will not be cancelled tomorrow (3/26/2103). Everyone gets 2 drop weeks, so simply deciding not to play is an option that doesn't carry too harsh of a penalty. I will say, however, that the course will be getting longer every time that we switch it up from here on out, so typically you want to try and get some good scores in early. Maybe the ground conditions make this a moot point...

- this is not a PDGA sanctioned league, so you can attach all of the gift packing ribbon that you want to. I have done this in the past and it works quite well when done properly. I would recommend taping a 3 foot long piece of gift packing ribbon (darker color) to the bottom of your discs...take a piece of ribbon and split it in half lengthwise (this helps reduce drag a bit) and use a piece of packing tape to secure it to the bottom. Make sure that you offset the tape a bit so that the starting point of the loose ribbon itself is exactly in the middle of the disc. Also, make sure to wrap the ribbon around the tape once or twice before you secure it. This will keep the ribbon from slipping out. Also, I would recommend doing this at home while your discs are warm and dry.

- The temperature is going to just barely be above freezing, so the course is going to be a bit wet as well. Bring plenty of extra towels and maybe a change of shoes, socks, gloves, etc. for afterwards. You can never be too prepared...

- for those of you that do make it tomorrow, there will be the added bonus of FREE BEER!!! Schlafly Brewing Co. generously donated a keg of beer for both days of this past weekends C-Tier tournaments. We decided against tapping the keg on Sunday at Sioux Passage due to the horrid road conditions and the fact that we cancelled the second round. I will only leave the keg sitting out during my round of play if somebody else is willing to sit and babysit it...I certainy don't want any minors having access or the tapper to go missing.

That is all for now. If you have any questions, post them...I will be re-visiting this thread later today when I post the official results from last week.
