Default Ben Geren Mini

Starting on September 23rd and running until November 4th there will be a 10:00am mini every Saturday at Ben Geren. Entry fee is $5 bucks, $1 buck going towards WAFDA, $1 buck going towards ace pot, $3 bucks going towards payout.
WAFDA has already tossed in $25 bucks from their own account to kick off the ace pot. The mini will be singles and I will alternate from the a pins and the b pins. No mixed pin positions for the mini's they will be in either a's or b's. Myself and the slinger will be running the minis. If you have any questions feel free to ask. until then keep on throwing.

This will be a handicapped league also, trying to make it fair, particularly for newer players as well as players that have never played competitively.

We've seen alot of different ways to handicap and we're not totally set on 1 yet, we're leaning towards simplicity - draw everyone towards par 54 - if you average 2 under par you'd have a +2 handicap, if you play 3 above par your handicap will be -3.

Does anyone have any suggestions on this? I like Chuck Kennedy's method on discgolf.com or doing it by a PDGA player rating but I think it might be confusing to inexperienced players and this league is really geared towards them as far as fairness.

The scores used will be on the honor system particulary for the 1st round, we'll keep a ledger for determining the handicap as the league progresses, its only 7 weeks long.

Ideas or comments are welcomed!!

One concern that I already have, and I don't want to be overly examining the method so much as to complicate whats not really complicated but IMO if the tee's were all consistent throughout the 7 weeks it might help better track peoples handicap - remember this is designed for newer players, 500 foot holes can discourage a new player pretty quickly! Maybe move everything long for the very last round of the league or even let the players that are playing vote on what to play.

But most importantly, it's great to finally see an organized mini with WAFDA's name on it, let's have fun and play disc golf

i'll start out in the shorts and we can discuss how we want to run the layout with the players that show up. yes this is going to be geared towards the newcomers to the game but anyone is welcome to play. the park has been seeing quite a lot of newer players out there, some with xp some without. this will hopefully be a way to get a good gathering of the local players new to the disc golf scene. hopefully the chance to play with experienced players and see how they play will be an incentive to come out and see whats up.

There are no "C" positions, Pitch is just being a smart *[email protected]

Besides we all know that he favors the "A" hole positions

I bet if Ben Geren had "C" positions, there'd be added cash all over them!

In whatever position that they are in there is added cash for an ace in league play ($25 added) + whatever the pot equals
If you can find time come on down and play some in the league, I know that there's bigger ace pots and "action" but we'd appreciate some better advanced types helping some of our rec players.

first mini there were 2 players present. i would like to thank evan for coming out in the rain to support wafda on a fine rainy day.

ace pot is now 27 bucks, nope neither evan or myself hit an ace so the money is still there, we played for a whopping 1 dollar gain.

yeah evan whupped me i played a horrible round. i was so cozy in the bed last night with the sound of the thunderstorm it was quite hard to crawl out of bed this morning but i did.

next week same golf time same golf channel.
