Is there going to be a junior division for certain?
If so, do they have to pre register and is it really going to cost them 50$?
Not for certain, one signed up today. I know that if another junior knows of this he may switch from intermediate to Junior division. It would be nice to have at least 4 to make the division.
All players must pre register, otherwise its $20 extra to sign up the day of. $35 for Juniors
Though I won't be playing in this, I just wanted to say that I played SeaTac for the first time in a couple months this past weekend, and the course is looking great. Seems to improve each year since CB's has been an influence there. Keep up the good work guys, hope the new holes and other improvements aren't too far off in the future.
Bummer you won't be playing in this Tim. We would be willing to shave off a considerable amount of your entry fees since you helped run it last year and all?
Just throwing that out there.
Thanks for the praise. The gruesome threesome as well as Adam with his rider got another mow in yesterday on at least 14 of the holes.Only 2 break downs,and 3 belts, and of course right after, the rain came
Could almost see the grass growing right back to its original length before 8 hours of hacking away at it. Luckily it was overcast today so its looking pretty eff-in schoweeeeet I must say.
New holes are on the horizon. We can actually get started clearing fariways. Just waiting on funding for equipt to do so. But..... if anyone has acess to a brush hog attachment and is willing to put it to the test. lemme know.
Anyone know if there is a doubles event happening friday night like last year?
I believe the hunt for a TD is on. I ran it last year but I'm probably heading out backpacking that weekend so won't be able to do it again. I'll be happy to help anyone with the PDGA paperwork and this tourney is REALLY easy to run.
Just let me know if you or anyone else would be interested in helping out
EDIT: TD found, thanks Kyle Sutherland!!! See the separate thread for the doubles announcement
Will there be separate tee pads for the junior division?
Open and advanced will play seatac,lakewood,seatac
intermediate,& Jrs will play lakewood,seatac,lakewood
Sorry, no alternate pads for Juniors.. but Sundays baskets at lakewood
will be shorter than on Saturdays.
As I expressed before it is a bummer that there are not more kids signed up for the Battle. I would really like to host a juniors only event to use the short basket pins like I did for the Lakewood Ace Run Challenge. Since that was my motivation for adding the shorter holes in the first place. Most of them are under 200'.
The struggle is getting enough of the younger generation hip to it.
There was some talk with a few fathers about hosting a Father/son dubs,
Or even a Jr. Pro caddy event. This would be where local pro players will share the teepad with four juniors giving tips,helping with disc selection,and playing along with them.
Since there are 9 holes in short this would be a easy number to deal with. Only needing 9 pros and 36 Juniors.
Having worked with a few schools and teaching an after school program I am a big fan of getting the kids more involved.
I will continue efforts in this department.
For now back to the Battle.. sorry it needs my attention..
Two questions before the Battle: 1. What time is the players meeting? 2. You stated earlier Masters will be playing Lakewood,Seatac,Lakewood. Is that still the deal? 3. And does that include the advanced masters? Ok thats 3 questions...
Looking forward to the Battle!
