    Idaho divided

    well unfortunately its the truth and people will talk. dion is a really nice guy but we have some major issues here in the disc golf world in Idaho and they need to be addressed in order for them to be fixed. so there is no reason not to be honest like i stated before we are in the works to fixing them. Dion i would really like some feedback on the whole tourney if possible and if you want to just pm me or post it here either is fine. Thanks
    Please remember that IDAHO is divide from south to north by over 400 miles,AND ONLY 1 FRWY. North Idaho is doing just fine.
    Let me ,or us(nirdgc) know if we can help southern "Idaho address some major issues"

I would also like to say I hope you change your mind on never coming back. there are a few things in the works to make sure things from here on out will be more "smooth" but if you do decide not to return i understand and wish you luck in the future. Ill see you in Oregon. thanks again!

          I heard a few rumors there were some Mickey Mouse holes that used construction fencing to create faux OB. The rumors inferred this was a misguided effort to make the course more difficult, but really just made it flukey.

          That's what I heard anyway. Anyone who was there is more than welcome to clear up the details.

            I'd like to hear more about this as well, if for no other reason, as a heads up for any TDs as to what to avoid for their own events.

              I heard a pair of snow shoes one year. Another got a bunch of radio station promos CD's. 6' tall guy got kids sleeping bag.

              Some good news: with Richter there he should be able to right the ship and put it back on course. DR Celebration was not the same without you.

                  That is certainly the largest contributing factor. I also played poorly and my attitude was not in the right place, so I said things that werent true. I'll be back to play again, I'll just be more particular about what events I attend. Payout was stellar, I got the same amount of money for fourth place there as fourth place got at the Eugene Celebration (for playing about 50 points worse on average). It was my worst tourney this year by far, and the OB fences were the worst thing I have ever encountered on a disc golf course to date.

                  Idaho guys are cool, and I'd like to make it over there again for some action next year. Lets also try to not schedule over each other, every Idaho event has fallen on the same weekend as an Oregon event this year...

                      I know the guy who won Intermediate, a north Idaho transplant. I will ask him his take on the temp fence line OB obstacles. He appeared to have played very well, carding the 2nd best 2nd course score of the tournament ,993 rating. So it maybe relative how you finish to your perception of the tourney. And for Idaho scheduling over the Oregon events, that does go both ways. With so many events per state its getting more difficult to pick a date that doesn't preclude someone somewhere. Even within your own state. With Washington St between us two,the job of the state coordinator is becoming more involved. Communication between TD's and accommodations for others events is key to trying to achieve the best results.

                        8 bunkers on 7 of the 20 holes. This is not an actuall image of the OB fences at the tourney, but this is the kind of fencing and similar height employed. About 1 foot high on the near side, and about 3 to 4 feet high on the farside.

                                Thats the key there Yose....
                                IF we communicate...........then someone really has to care.

                                I have "asked" all bordering TD's to send me there schedules so they can be intergrated into the "Official Calendar" that I keep for my scheduling purposes.

                                I have tried to "communicate" the fact that Oregon Players WILL TRAVEL to other states near us to play IF they are able.

                                NEVER have I been contacted nor received a response from ANY coordinator in a bordering state other than Cali.

                                My take is this...

                                It BENEFITS other states TD's if they do not schedule over Oregon events.
                                We do not get very many "traveling" players from other states typically. There are a few that make the trip, but that is very few.
                                IF those TD's from bordering states are happy getting the small number of players they get, then dont bother caring about scheduling.

                                Our players WILL COME TO YOUR EVENTS...But only if you want them there.
