Performance based trophies? YES :yay:
In addition to the normal raw score divisional trophies, ALL players (with a handicap) will be eligible to compete for performance (Handicapped) based trophies. Players' Handicaps will be determined using the same system used for the WA Team Golf Handicaps and will create an individual performance based score (over/under a player's handicap vs the round ratings).
How does a player get a handicap? Handicaps are determined by using PDGA, WA Team Golf, and/or West Sound Challenge rated rounds. A player must have at least (3) rated rounds to establish a Player's Handicap for this event.
This event format with both raw score and handicapped based divsion trophies is a first in the NW. Performance based scoring will even the playing field and allow ALL players to compete in one large division with a possible field size of 84 players. :shooting:
Who will be crowned the first West Sound Champion based on the best overall individual performance of the day?
The only way to find out is to sign up and play 42 holes of golf at the Bud Pell at Ross Farm course on Sunday, September 9th.
Go West Sound :trophy:

Sam, I paid for a season pass for the challenge. Does that still cover me for this final event? I want to make sure I get registered! :trophy:

Check out the PDGA registered entrants page linked to my first post on this thread... You're already on it!
I think you're good to go! See you there!

Yes, the players that purchased a "Season Pass" for the West Sound Challenge series are paid up for all six events, including WWIII.
I have already saved them a spot on the unofficial registration list pending a 'yea' or 'nay' to play in the WWIII event. All unclaimed spots will get filled from the wait list on August 30th.
If all the season pass holders want in, then the WWIII event is half full. :cheers:
Don't miss this opportunity to play in the only West Sound PDGA event this year!! Sign-up before it's too late.
August 1st, 2012, 07:40 PM
Thanks, guys. This baby's going to sell out! :cheers:
August 1st, 2012, 09:59 PM
Another 4 online sign-ups today.
I'll swing by the PO Box tomorrow after work.
Lots of locals said they are playing, but haven't got an offical "yes" via a paid entry form. Boy are they going to sorry when the event sells out in the next week or so. :slapface:
I'll update the PDGA registration list early next week.
Go West Sound :cheerleader:
August 3rd, 2012, 09:29 AM
The official list is up to 40 players (I'll update the PDGA site early next week).
The event is half full. :cheers:

I just recieved the mini disc order for the Event (thanks to some early sponsorships).
Player packs will now include one cool metal flake champion mini disc.
Click here to see the registered players. (http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/96714)
Hurry up and register before this event fills up. The West Sound August monthly, "the Zen Open", sold out and was non-sanctioned.
WSC: Whiners in the Woods III is PDGA sanctioned and is expected to fill by the end of the month.

I played the Bud Pell at Ross Farm course over the weekend and it is looking awesome. A special thanks goes out to all that has helped in the course maintenance. :cheers:
The tall grass in the field has been mowed and other general clearing has been performed.
The basket and tee areas for the extra 3 holes have been marked.
The event staff is working on the final touches for the "special event only" map that all players will recieve with their player's pack.
The map with course rules will be posted soon.
August 20th, 2012, 07:36 PM
Yeah!! 21 holes of fun! x2!
August 23rd, 2012, 11:41 AM
Checked the PO Box yesterday, a few more mail in entries to add to the list.
As of today, the total is up to 50 players.
Support the WSDGA and play in our Fall fundraising event. The money raised will go towards the replacement of the stolen Kitsap Fairgrounds basket (#12), Bud Pell at Ross Farm course improvements, and the Boys and Girls Club. :cheerleader:

Looking over the Registration list, I see that Mason county is under-represented. Did the West Sound showing at the Showdown scare you guys and gals away. :nahnah: :shooting:
There are currently 4 ladies signed up. It would great to increase that to 8.
On top of the divisional trophies, ALL players with at least three official rated rounds will automatically be eligible for the handicapped scoring based trophies. The ladies will also have one handicapped trophy to play for.
Just added is the Grandmasters division for the old geezers. :whistler:
The last West Sound event at the Bud Pell course had 84 players show up with no pre-registration list. I'm sure this will be no different. There will be lots of whining at WWIII because players didn't take the time to pre-register.
Please pass on the WWIII event info to all your disc playing friends.
Value based entry fee. Only $20 for a sanctioned PDGA event.
Go West Sound.

Just added is the Grandmasters division for the old geezers. :whistler:
Does this mean that THIS "geezer" can play in this division and have a better shot at a trophy? :drool: :jumpspin:
August 29th, 2012, 09:43 PM
Technically you are a geezer, but have above average player rating for that division.
You are stuck in the Open division for the series based on the guideline set in the series rules. You are eligible for grandmaster trophies for the Event Final.
I'll be updating the PDGA registration list soon with the players that I know are eligible for the Grandmaster division and have ratings below ~920.
I'll encourage all players with ratings above 920 to play open and allow the average skill base players a chance at a trophy in the intermediate (amatuer) and Geezer (Grandmaster) divisions.
August 30th, 2012, 03:02 PM
So many different ways to win!!!
But all I care about is that cool MINI!!:rockon:
August 31st, 2012, 07:23 PM
That's what I figured, Sam. My comment was mostly made "tongue in cheek". Guess i'll just have to try to play well and spank most of those guys half my age. ;)

This Sunday, September 9th is the WWIII event.
Player Check-in is from 8:00am to 8:45am.
Players' Meeting at 9:00am

Prize for top score each round

Huge raffle drawing at the awards ceremony, including a discatcher sport basket from Innova ($200) value.
Do you have any unwanted new disc golf related items to dontate to the WSDGA for use in the raffle?
If so, bring them along and add to the fundraising efforts by the WSDGA to promote and grow the sport of disc golf.
Proceeds will go towards the purchase of a replacement basket for the Kitsap Fairgrounds that was stolen last month. Funds have also been set a side for more course improvements at the Bud Pell at Ross Farm.
See you all on Sunday. :cheerleader:
September 7th, 2012, 12:36 PM
Will there be sign ups day of? I'm not certain if I will have Sunday off yet or not.. Thanks
September 7th, 2012, 07:03 PM
Checking the PDGA listings, and accounting for the extra capacity afforded by the 21 hole layout, I'd say chances of playing as a day-of attender is looking good.
I'd come earlier than I would otherwise and be an early check-in sign up.
Big thanks as always to Flingin Fireman, as he was out on the course today grooming the fairways with the big mower/tractor. Thanks Paul!
And there's crews doing course prep as I type and again tomorrow, so the Bud will be all dressed and ready for Sunday.
And Have I mentioned that there's a strong likelihood of Ice cream after the second round?
Go West Sound

Now that the event has come and gone. I want to extent a special thanks all the players that helped prep the course and assisted with the day of operations. It takes a whole team to pull off a great on-time event.
The event was a success. The WSDGA raised enough funds to purchase a replacement basket for the stolen basket at the Kitsap Fairgrounds DGC and had some funds left over to use towards course improvement at the Bud Pell at Ross Farm DGC.
Thanks again and Job Well Done :cheers:
And others that I can't remember today. Sorry.
Other sponsors included (not limited to):
NW Paintball Park
NW Golf Range

Cedar Products Company

The West Sound Challenge 2012 season consisted of 6 events from Discing at the Depot in the spring all the way to the final event.
Thanks series lead Sam Huff and WSDGA team for providing the West Sound region with a wonderful series of playing opportunities - balancing value, fun, competition, and also fostering an increased participation by those who have never played "tournament events" before.
