    If MCDG runs a PDGA League on the Black course........

    would you come play?

    I am thinking something like 10 weeks, Wed nights, 5-7 dollars. PDGA Sanctioned. Played on the BLACK COURSE. (Well maybe, I may do the Red course for the first league due to light limitations).

    Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

    Just to clarify things, All the West Sound Challenge events provided round ratings for the player's scores so they could evaluate their performance during the season.

    Only the final event was PDGA sanctioned with round ratings used towards a player's PDGA ratings, if a current member.

    I can't believe I just saw this post, 6 months later. Crazy. I would love to have PDGA leagues around here. It is such a great way to get your rating accurate for tournaments with less cost overall, I think. I agree with you Westsound, low cost leagues and low cost mini tourneys with you guys would be awesome...I do wish more of the WSDGA tournaments were sanctioned though, that has kept me from coming a few times. I know it involves more cost, but just a preference of mine and probably some other folks. If there were two ways to get more ratings around here it really would be a win-win. I love competition and the ratings system is how I get to see it in action against myself. I can't compete against most fields out there and win, the competition is mostly against myself. Anyway, I am babbling.

    I would love to have a league next year at Shelton, preferably a Friday or weekend time is easier for me as I work quite a ways away from SS, but I could make 5:30 or 6, even on Wed, it would just be difficult to do every week. What if they were every other week? And if the WSDGA tournaments had more that were sanctioned next year that would be amazing as well. I'm always so jealous when I read about those east coasters who have tournaments around them every weekend and leagues during the week. I think we're getting there...sure would be nice. Great idea Morgan hope it comes to fruition.

    Hey, this brings up a good point - is anyone yet running a PDGA league this summer up in the Sound region at all? I was wondering if anyone geared up to give it a go this year. IF not, then Morgan, I think you'd be breaking ground locally on the concept. (its always the toughest to be the first at something new)

    With the PDGA leagues, there was quite a bit of talk about ability for clubs to spread out the events over a period of time versus all events straight weeklies. I'm not sure how to leverage that to your advantage other than being able to avoid conflict dates like holidays, etc.

    The start times (even at 6:00) will keep me from coming, but I like the idea. If I was a Mason county local I'd be all for it. So... either entice the Tacoma, Oly, and beyond players... or get the local scene growing with homegrowns!

    Here's my $0.02 on the league to get the discussions started.

    How about making the Overall League payout "Trophy only" and each individual event of the league will be for a nominal payout amount for each division(4?). Criteria for overall league champions (best 5 of 10 finishes).

    Most likely the top players for the league will win payout at each individual event and the trophy will be for pride and bragging rights. Why offer those players a payout twice. It will only exclude the casual 2-5 event players.

    As for the entry fee, offer up three options:
    1) Single event entry (caters to the 1-3 event players).
    2) Limited League Buy-in (4 event break even point, max. 5/6 events).
    3) Full League Buy-in (7 event break even point).

    If a Limited buy-in player ends up playing more than 5/6 events, then they pay the single event entry fee. This entry fee structure even allows a player to pay at each event, but would cost more in the long run and would benefit the league/club to more added funds.


    Division
    Open - play for cash
    Advanced - play for cash (regulated in who plays to prevent sandbagging)
    Recreation - no prizes, very low entry fee to cover expenses
    Women - no prizes, very low entry fee to cover expenses.

    Honestly Im not sure at this point how the competitive aspects work in relation to the PDGA involvement. My assumptions is many folks would be more interested in the league due to the PDGA rating provided for every round more so than the actually multiple week contest. I would personally opt to minimize that aspect so folks didn't feel its was pointless to only attend 1-3 events. 1-3 are the kind of numbers that would preclude them from competing in a 10 week league that required 5-6 events to be consider for final payout.

    I am in Oly most Wednesdays
    + could get out of work at 5:00
    = I would make at least a few of these.

    Is a few enough - How do leagues work?

    How you feel about it being mid week? 5:30 start time?


    6 out of 10 would seems like a fair number.

    tues,wed, or thursday would be good days for league night.

    Start time is always tough to decided upon. Too early and it effects players that get off work later in the afternoon. Too late and players get home to their families late and daylight becomes an issue. 5:30p looks good to me, but 6:00p has been tradtionally better.

    You'll need to figure a system of single event entry fees and/or a full league entry fee that allows a player to miss several events and still be worth while to sign-up.

    hmph. how many times have i asked you for anything, morgan? huh? just once, right? one time, one thing (you offered to caddy for me at the RCO so that doesn't count)... please don't schedule the showdown at the same time as worlds. that's all i've ever asked of you, just that one thing... so no, i will not agree that scheduling is hard.

    I agree completely. With that said... I don't care, because it is ALL about ME! And I want to play BOTH!

    (Understand, we just like the course and have been looking forward to this event since the first time we played it.)
