    Off the top of my head, I'm thinking 7-10 person teams, with a balance of players (something like 3 Pro, 2 adv, 2 women, 1 master, 1 grandmaster). A two day event, at a rotating course each year.
    Awfully tough to pick someplace that's close for everyone, so why not switch it around? Each club could take turns hosting it.

    $200 per club entry fee ($10/person). Payout goes to the top 2-3 teams (depending on turnout) for their club.

    Kent - I'm in if you are. Want to organize this with me? Maybe shoot for April?

      Scott is the 2nd person that has raised his hand to help develop this.
      How about this, perhaps a committee approach would work. Send me a PM if you are interested in being a part of the committee that designs and implements the format. I can facilitate a tele or web conference for those who would like to be a part of the committee and live out of the area. I think 5 people max. I have 3, need 2 more. First 2 that PM me are in. GO!

        Really? A five person committee to run a non-sanctioned one or two day tournament? Seems a bit excessive, doesn't it?

          Sounds like a similar idea to what was recently held in Hot Springs, MT. The Northern Rockies Team Challenge was a 2 day event. First on Sat. was a regular ol' C-tier/Sunday qualifier. For those who were on a team They received a seeding number based on how they finished Sat. within their designated team then on Sunday it was only team competition where the seeded players went head to head Sunday to compete for a team title. Check out the Garden City Flyers Website, here's the link directly to the topic:

          Sounds like a really cool format and I like this format idea better than individual series events.

            I could actually see your facial expressions when you posted that. it looked something like or maybe more like what I was hoping for was and I am not convening a committee to run one event. I am convening a committee to develop a strategy for a long term, on going, annual series of Rad inter club, Inter state disc battles.
            My thought was to have this be a new method of creating some healthy rivalry and club pride on an on going basis. Something that club members really get vested in.

              Stay tuned for a NW Team Invitational brought to you by Dion Arlyn, Myself, and the other top rated pros in the area. Our plan is to make the top pros in each region the Team Captains and have a Matchplay format championship. Lots of time to plan for next year. Let's pool all of our efforts into one big event (instead of trying to develop 2 or 3 of the same style events that conflict or compete with each-other) I'm at the Player's Cup right now playing Match-Play with the best in the world. It's sick. (enough said)

                Sounds good. It also sounds like you want to be the 5th committee member for our regional Club events? Let me know when you get back.

                  Is there a listing of all the clubs in the NW? I want to start contacting the clubs in the next week to discuss this.

                    We'll have to see what format you have in mind etc etc. This is something that has been years in the making and finally it's time.

                    We no longer have a Team Oregon for the SW Team Invitational in San Diego..... From day one we all thought it would be cool to make a NW Team Invitational to off-set their event. Please get in touch with me directly to discuss. If it is something that could work let's do it. It's my goal to make this a Regional Event and make a Team Challenge that encompasses all the NW.

                    This is a scenario I've had in my head for the 8 Teams..... Eugene/Willamette Valley, Corvallis/Central Valley, Bend/Central Oregon, Southern Oregon, Portland Metro, NorCal, Seattle/Tacoma, and Eastern Washington (Walla Walla/Kennewick/Spokane etc). 4 Pro Men, 2 Pro Masters, 1 Pro Women, 2 Adv, 1 Adv Women, 1 Adv Master.

                    The difference from the SW event is we are hopefully going to involve the Adv Players and 2 Women instead of just 1....... Ahhh, Dreams......

                      I really didn't have any thoughts dialed in about format. that is why I reached out here.
                      I love the idea of having all the NW clubs involved and playing each other. I also think we should have AM and REC spots. A club is to promote growth not just the top players. Those AM and REC players need to be involved.
                      My one thought is that we should have club playoff events for the open spots throughout the year so more club members will at least have an opportunity to play their way into it.
                      I am not sure how I feel about the PDGA ratings being a part of it.
                      The first committee meeting will be around the middle of December.
                      keep the thoughts coming.

                        I would actually join a club just to play in something like this!
                        Whenever I see a matress on top of a car, I think it's a prostitute making a house call!

                          There are enough dedicated clubs in the NW that this could quickly become a reality!
                          Nihilists! F@#$ me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

                            As Rebecca said earlier, this is an idea (club vs club) that has been discussed in the past and just hasn't happened. If it is going to be a club thing I think the first step is to present it to your local club (Stumptown for Kent) and go from there.
