    TDG 2009 pre-pre-lims meeting?

    NOT AN OFFICIAL TEAM DISC GOLF POST
    The 2009-10 season is just around the corner. I think there needs to be a meeting of the minds prior to the preliminary match. Any new teams need to be represented and (if need be) any format changes could be discussed/voted on. I know there are a lot of ideas that could be thrown around. Such as; doubles format, (possible) two conferences, (possible) two days, number of teams, new teams, tie-breakers, some sort of Asshole Casserole contingency , etc. etc. etc.

    I think this will help iron out the details of the upcoming season, and make sure things are ready to roll smoothly for the pre-lims/ week 1.
    I'm sure there are a lot of other things to talk about, any other ideas...?

    I'll be in the hot tub if you need me.

    I vote that we meet at a local bar or Jevon's house on a week night. Weekends are just too full as you pointed out. Somewhere centrally located that's relatively quiet. The BSF crew used to meet upstairs at Madison's (SE 11th & Madison). It's large enough for all of us. Other venue suggestions are welcome.
    I've been to a 'meeting' upstairs at Madison's, it illustrates my earlier point perfectly. It's too damn noisy to get any business done.

    I like Jeffs plan it would be better to meet on a week night. i think since you have people from other areas wanting to play let them form a tdg in there area and jordan keeps his 12 teams and maybe have a play off between the two or three areas. This would take the stress off jordan trying to run all these teams. so you need other td,s to step up and form there teams in there area. just a thought?

    This meeting will be when?!?!?

    I was just looking at the sweet calendar this forum links to and I was dismayed about picking a date for this pre-pre-lims meeting: Going backwards in time from week 1...
    Oct 3-4 (Willamette Open)
    Sept 26-27 (Oblive-I won't be there unless the meeting is at Whistler's Bend)
    Sept 19-20 (KMS & WAS Finals)
    Sept 12-13 (Eugene Celebration)
    Sept 5-6 (Labor Day).

    Option 1 This doesn't bode well for the meeting unless we conflict with SOMETHING so I am going to pick 9/19/09 at Milo BSF TC. But don't worry, you don't have to get the whole team to show up, just the captain or a designated representative.
    If you want to join TDG and you don't have a team you can PM me with your name and player rating if you can't make the meeting. This could be a good time to get a team together or fill a roster space on an existing team.
    The meeting can be short so that everyone can play dubs afterwards if they want.

    Option 2 would be Sept 26th but the location would be the yurts at 's Bend.

    Option 3 would be we just hash it out here on these intertubes with thread polls.

    Let er rip! How many TDGers are planning on attending Stieli or Ski Bowl? The punching bag has been lowered into prime striking distance. Swing away...

    3. I like the idea of a preseason meeting of interested players before the season starts, but it is my experience that these meetings usually are held at a noisy(and smoky) bar and it is hard to hold an organized meeting. But if everybody wants to do this I am game.

    4. Here are the items up for discussion:
    # of Teams interested and possibly splitting up the league into 2 divisions
    Format of play - singles and dubs
    Player Ratings and associated handicap system
    Cost and/or food cooking
    Anything else that I can't think of right now

    I happen to have a bar in my basement that doesn't allow cigarettes. Might only be large enough for captains and prospective captains though, as well as designated quaffer pourers.

    I am also accepting applications for those that would like an Asshole on their team. I am the last of an endangered species. I can promise excellent attendance. I can't promise winning any points though(unless I'm playing Sam). I am in possession of last seasons TDG DFL trophy so that should guarantee that we won't finish worse than second to last!

    Uhlman said - How many people are on a team? (I don't know if that was discussed.)
    Seven to a team.

    SMOKIN JOE said - Do you have home and away games, or if your from wortman, all away games, interest in a team, or are teams not based on local courses.
    Jordan sets up the tour...for the past three years all the teams go to a course (Jordan's decision) and we all play it the same day. We would play every other weekend and take a break around x-mas and new years.
