    Oregon State Championships

    It is time to take this event to the next level. In my opinion, this would include (but not be limited to):

    * PDGA sanctioning
    * multi-day event
    * multi-course event

    It might be too late to do much this year but it would be in our best interest to start moving this event in this direction. We will, of course, need a TD willing to direct this initiative and make this happen. I nominiate Magilla.

    OK, seriously, though... the time is well-past that we make this happen. Who's interested in helping out with this?

    MTA = Maximum time aloft, where you throw it and go for hangtime and catch it cleanly with one hand.
    TRC = throw run and catch, where you go for D which means distance.

    you had to be there

Imagine that, throw the fastback up there, go to the car, drive out of the park and grab a coffee, all the while it is just hovering up there, then speed back in and catch it one handed...pretty cool.
    You really had to be there to appreciate it.
    I think Roland Van Bibber won first place throwing a poly roc.
    Roland, if I remember right, threw his plastic, drove to a tavern and came back and caught it with a beer in the other hand.
    Without spilling any nonetheles.

    Wait....... who was editing the ol Valley Golfer back then?
    TYPO ALERT
    Zane's toss was 8.53 seconds.
    Also, I think it WAS sanctioned.
    Maybe by Wiff Diff, U. S. Disc Sports and/or the PDGA, or all of them.
    Mike said he was going to check on this.
    PS Nice comprehension there Nate.

    Have I mentioned that I am glad that we do not have so many abbreviations in DG? Seriously... I would totally deliver a RHBH to anyone who suggests that we need more.

    Yea, I like that one as well.......

    My best is just over 11 seconds.....

    Id venture to say that the 8 mins 53 seconds was for "Disc-a-thon" which MOST overalls did back in the day....

    State Championships

    I think a state championship event would be really cool to have, but just like the World Championships, it should not include an intermediate division. You should be able to be the Am champion or the Pro champion in a couple of different age and gender protected variations of course. I think there was once an INT world champion, but it doesn't make much sense so they removed it, it encourages playing down a little too much with an important title on the line.

    I think the qualifying thing would be rad... Just like at the USDGC you could have qualifying tournaments... ORS yes, but also a couple in Southern Oregon and around to met the needs of all the clans... I also really like the idea of a travailing tournament...

    On a completely different but also Oregon State Championship mode... we need to have a team based competition for city bragging rights... I'm thinking 18 person teams... match play, doubles, stroke play format... There can be as many teams as people can orginize... i.e. 3 from portland 1 from Albany... and you could make requirements like teams must have 3 women, one player older than 50, one player with no rating, two players below a 900 rating and so forth to encourage teams to bring new and different players into competitive play.

    A win is a win when you win!!!!!!!!

    Well, to be honest I did win my division (Intermediate) in a non-sanctioned Oregon State Championship. I'm not in ANY way criticizing Jerry Miller at Disc Golf Depot because, as always, he ran a great tournament, but it always bothered me that his tourneys were not sanctioned.

    I realize it is a personal preference, but I really just prefer playing sanctioned events. I like the fact that my rounds are rated and I can refer back to them at a later date and see how my game has (or has not) progressed.
    So how did it feel when you won?

    Did you feel like an Oregon state champ?

    I don't think you should have to live in Oregon to compete, no.

More like the Player's Cup at the end of the season on the national scene. Also, I think it would have more rapport with the players if it were a smaller, more exclusive event, i.e a privilege that only the best get to play in.
    The PDGA Match Play Championships will go this direction.
    The intent is that the Top 64 players will be in the field, eventually.
    With qualifiers, etc. + Wildcard Spots..........etc....

    What I do like is the possibility of a "Roaming" Championship, where a different Club hosts it each yr. Late Fall would be the best time frame, since the Series is over and the schedule has slowed down abit by then.
