    im totally in! it will be much easier than you all think to get 7 people together to form a team. think about it, there are enough serious golfers out at stilly that you could form 2-3 teams imediately.

      I have to agree with TYVEK, I think you'll be amazed at how easy it will be.

          Yes, Bob, Chris is a doer. One of those people that turns a conversation in a car ride into something realÖ.

          Having talked to a number of OR Team Disc participants here are what I think are the main considerations:

          1)TDG can be a pretty significant commitment for all players involved. In OR this equals a full day every other weekend for 9 weeks (1 home and 1 away event versus every other team!), and fielding a full team for each event during the winter, whatever the size of the teams during an inaugural season, is key. Assuming you want to have this home-away format for picking lineups, etc I would say that the more interested people there are, the bigger the teams should be, not the more teams there should be.

          2)Itís all about the handicaps. A team can be all Pros, all Ams, all geezers, or a mix (shoot thereís even a place for Pinkal) because that handicap system, as Bob pointed out, means that it is definitely not about simply amassing what you think are the best players. That is largely what makes TDG in Oregon the big draw that it is, right?

          Count me in! I would help with the scorekeeping and handicapping.

                When I've played handicapped doubles before (at a private course back east, where the clubhouse updated handicaps continually based on everyone's most recent 20 scorecards turned in) they took the two players' handicaps, added them and divided by 3. So it's not a true average -- it's meant to minimize the impact of unusually large handicaps, and slightly favor better players... effects for which there's a lot to be said. It seemed to work out very well.
                That is a new one that we haven't tried. It would have to be better than taking the average. Maybe we'll try the divide by 3 method next year.

                Taking the average made it a serious advantage to pair your 1000 rated Pro with your lowest rated player. Playing against 2 moderately rated players, the high/low team almost always won, and most of the time were even getting strokes! Even though the high/low team used almost every shot by the 1000 rated player.

                Last year we went to just taking the highest player's rating and going with that. Now it favors using your 2 highest rated players in the dubs. This year we added a clause that your Dubs player must play in a Singles match in the other round or they can't compete for the dubs match point. We'll see if it has any effect.
                Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
                Remain ye men of faculty complete,
                Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
                Attending to our noble bond and contract?
                Or does here stand the last remaining man
                To give a fig for rules and order yet,
                No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
                Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
                Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.

                  Thanks everybody for the input. I am in the process of writing up the guidelines for WA TDG. I will post the rules and format when I finish. There will be 6 teams, 6 courses. Ive got confirmation from 5 captains so far, Im waiting on response from one more. Those interested in joining a team should email me, chrisgilberts@msn.com. Let me know what your "home" course is, and I will put you in touch with a captain.

                      I'm the 6th Beatle in question here. I've talked to Chris, and I fully support the WA Team Golf idea and his efforts towards it, but I just can't say with 100% certainty that I'd be able to make all 6 events, and I think anybody that agrees to be a captain should be able to make that commitment. I'd still be interested in being part of the Seattle team, but if someone else is interesting in captaining, by all means, go ahead.

                        Thanks Tim for getting back with me. As Tim said, I'm looking for a "captain" to step up. Id like them to represent any combination of Lakewood, Seatac, or Terrace Creek. If your interested, let me know. chrisgilberts@msn.com

                              Heh, just don't let yourself get burnt out. That's what I'm struggling to avoid.
