League Notes 8/3/2010 - Week 3
The Week 9 activity this league will be a 18 hole tournament with divisional payouts! More details to follow in the coming weeks…
Once again, the cost of the league is $25/man or $50/team. The extra $5 worked out perfectly last league session. Everyone was able to walk away with a little something and I didn’t have to squeeze the payouts too much. We are going to stick with this entry fee from here on out.
Everyone has 4 weeks to pay their league fees. This is plenty of time to figure out your finances. After the fourth week, you will incur a $5/week (max $10 total) penalty. Any money accumulated from this penalty will go directly towards the ACE POOL, not the payouts.
As usual, there will also be 50/50 holes, FREE CTP holes, and an ACE POOL. The price of these will ALWAYS remain the same. It is $2/hole for the 50/50’s and $1/round for the ACE POOL. If you want to participate in all of the extra contests, the total is $5/man. The FREE CTP holes are obviously FREE for everyone.
I have a pair of Oakley sunglasses up for raffle. Thank you Brad Stone for the generous donation! They are ballistics grade, military issue. If you would like to take a closer look, just ask me, I have them in my league box. Tickets are $2/each or 6 for $10. I will do the drawing before we start Week 8. All profits go directly back into course improvements.
Due to the success of the format, NO SUBS will be allowed. If your partner can’t make it, you must play CALI. If both of you can’t make it, you will be taking a drop week. Each team gets 1 drop week per 8-week league session. Also, when playing CALI, only your first shot off of the tee counts towards the ACE POOL. Your second shot is only good for the CTPs and 50/50’s.
I will be making the divisional splits after Week 5 this session (instead of Week 4). Let’s see if the extra week makes a difference.
Following JB Doubles Summer II League, Mark Dudenhoeffer and I will be running The Battle at the Barracks League. We tried this out last year, and everyone had a ton of fun! This is a weekly payout Ace Race format. We shorten every hole up so that nothing is longer than 200 feet. Your stroke score is inconsequential. Only birdies and metal count. 1 point for a birdie, 5 points for metal, and 25 points for an ACE. The higher your points total the better. In addition to the weekly payouts, there will be an overall prize as well. Check it out!
