      Zimm, all I can say is that you should expect both OBs and Mandos to be in play for the NW Contender. Maybe a couple island greens one with no drop and mandatory retee? I will post specs tonight or tomorrow.

      Also if you are not current with the PDGA either get that done this week or expect to pay an extra $10 before I let you hit the course for Saturdays rounds.

      As far as rain is concerned, we are from the NW, deal with it!!

          FYI: With just under a week to go, we already have over 180 MA1 players in the lottery trying for the 72 available spots.

          The Contender is looking better and better!!!!

                With the new Mando rules, remember there is no "default drop zone"
                So since there are only two stated drop zones, it sounds like there will be
                a lot of "replay from previous lie" or "reteeing" going on...

                  There will be marked drop zones for all mando areas. There are only 2 mandatory drops. You will see why when you get here on Friday. With the mandatory drops you have to take your next shot from there no matter where you went OB on that hole. There is only one hole playing as a mandatory retee.

                    Cool thanks! I am glad to hear this. I know the PDGA made a subtle change so there is no longer a "default drop zone" for a missed Mando. Sorry if I introduced confusion...
                    Let's just not miss any mandos or go OB and then we won't have to worry about it!

                      No worries. I was going to address this subject at players meeting. I just wanted to add those two drops because they will be mandatory.

                          Kudo's Justin for that final 9 layout. Very creative. Almost worth a trip down to watch it play out. I predict only one participant will card a 40 or less.

                            You could always just come down Sunday and drink beer Fish. Its a very fun and challenging layout for sure.

                                Paths will be OB with exception of hole #9. Mando will still be in for #6 basket by tennis court. Tee #11 to basket 12 hole will have a mando as well. Each hole will be discussed before play begins on it.
