    2. Which course do the Advance Women start at? I know it says advance starts at Fairgrounds but I assumed that at Tale of Two Rivers and I ended up at the wrong course so I just want to make sure!!

    3. ...there is no #3... Have a great weekend everyone!!!

    ---I am not opposed to leaving at the crack of dawn. A warm shower, cup of coffee and sleeping in my own bed is worth it!!

        Just got done playing the Bud Pell @ Ross Farm course and it is looking great. All the grass is mowed and the wooded fairways have been cleaned up.

        You would have never guessed that the course has only been open for three months. Looks like a seasoned course.

        Are you ready to play the 1000' par 5 hole?

            Yes, 368 Northeast Waaga Way. It shares the address with the northwest paintball park. As you come in the entrance, keep left up the driveway's short hill. You'll see signs for where to park on the left. First time you play, I recommend walking down the path to the field to throw alt 1. That way you have a better idea for where to throw your drive from the regular hole 1 teepad.

                Fairgrounds was a pretty cool course. No wining out of me.

                THEN a round at NAD. WOW, I used up all my kleenex. Very tight, very few "fair"ways.

                We'll see how the new Bud Pell course is tomorrow.

                      Hmmmm......not one to complain, but i think the round rating for bud pell is a little off. I know i did not play as well as i could have, but i am pretty sure it was not a 924 rated round i shot. I shot 2 under par i think the rating on the pdga website is going off a par 54 score........which would be extremely awesome (way to go for those who acheived that).

                      Is that what it really is or is that going to be fixed?

                        Dan, I played with you all weekend and that thing about not being one to complain....well....I absolutely agree with you. There is no complaint heard and you are absolutely correct. Actually, all the round ratings will change as the appropriate course info and who was playing which course at which time is not yet totally entered. Sorry about that everyone and it will be fixed as soon as possible.

                        As for everything else, again I would like to thank all of the competitors for their professionalism and spirit as it made the tournament that much better. Working with Paul is always great as he really strives to put out a great product and I think that the final result was awesome.

                        That being said, both Paul and I are always looking for ways to improve and be better and make your tourney experience perfect. So if you have any advice, comments or thoughts on things that were good, bad or could have been better, please feel free to share them here or send me a pm, e-mail or whatever so that we can mull them over. This doesn't mean we are taking down 57 trees, but we REALLY do listen to what all have to say. Shoot, before we left the parking lot yesterday Paul and I were already talking about what we ourselves saw that could have been improved on.

                        So thanks again, congrats to all competitors for fighting the good fight through all the nasty trees and we hope to see you next year!

                          Thank you to everyone that came out to play this weekend. I enjoyed seeing everyone and I hope you had as good of a time as I did.
                          The ratings issue is one of not having the Bud Pell listed in the PDGA course listings. It thinks it is a par 54. I am not sure why that lowers the ratings, but I will be working on that today to clear things up.
                          As Papa said we are already looking to address some of the concerns about "fair" ways. Not sure we will please everybody, but there is nobody more interested in improving our courses and the game than we are.
                          We only had 2 scoring errors this year...2 that is amazing, and no questions regarding rules issues, OB's etc in the AM division. Thank you all for that.
                          Thanks for all the support from the disc golf community, We are starting to see greater support coming in from people that know nothing about the game and will make a huge difference in the growth of our game, our tournaments, and the payouts.

                            I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure the par of a course has nothing to do with the rating. Looks like they're skewed because there is no separation of pools. As if everyone was playing the same course at the same time.

                              Yep, absolutely true.
                              It is now fixed. Sorry for any angst for the low ratings or undeserved excitement over the false high ratings, but the trueand accurate ratings are up now. I actually got a full night's sleep last night and it is amazing how much easier things seem this morning.
                              Thanks for your patience.
