    We won't fail for it!!!!
    Haha!! Nah, just trying to share some tasty treats, and since it's Milo, and that apple pie is gluten free, this weekend seemed perfect for it!

So, your argument regarding the weight of my argument just seems dismissive.

      FYI: I still stick behind my SSA = 56, though this weekend's weather report is giving me pause. The course is significantly shorter and a few ares of prominent OB have been taken out of play.......though Shawn's Hot Apple Pie could bring those OB lines back into play!
      Yeah, I think in good weather it's probably 9rpps but with all the rain forecast it'll be back into the 8rpps range.
      Don't worry, we'll dominate anyway...

        Don't think I didn't see you trying to slip in the 10 RP/S into your first missive...you not so slick!

        Maybe there needs to be an SSA side bet or something...

        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.
        Ill not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.

          Would like to see how this one turns out.




          And Hell Yes! to the apple pie. Damn fine way to make a rainy day that much better.

                          Please elaborate. I don't have the luxury of previewing the course. Would you please confirm these pin settings are correct?

                          First of all, this will be using the hole numbering from last year's BSF. (I heard a rumor that they are going to renumber the East side, so that the starting hole for the East is more gallery-friendly. Meaning last year's East 18 becomes next year's East 1.) But for now, I am using the "old" numbering (where East 1 tees off from behind the bathroom):

                          # -- length -- relative position

                          BSF1E: short = left (straighter, shorter shot)
                          BSF2E: short = left (at the top of the slope, shorter shot, not up on the plateau)
                          BSF3E: short = left (straight, behind the huge tree, no sharp turn to the right)
                          BSF4E: short = short (same shot, just one less big tree to get past)
                          BSF5E: short = right (straighter shot, no dog leg left at the end)
                          BSF6E: short = right (out in the field, not tucked left in big trees, about the same length?)
                          BSF7E: short = left (is that crazy pin no longer used, tucked left short?)
                          BSF8E: ony one pin I know of
                          BSF9E: is there a pin off to the right of the lone tree? is it shorter? (Genius)
                          BSF10E: short = left (not on bark nugget island in the parking lot)
                          BSF11E: ony one pin I know of
                          BSF12E: short? = left? I hear there is a new pin short of the island in the parking lot?
                          BSF13E: short = left
                          BSF14E: short = right pin (triple trunk), the only short pad in TDG, "1/4 mile"
                          BSF15E: short = left, short of the "nipple"?
                          BSF16E: short = left (the combined hole)
                          BSF17E: only one pin that I know of
                          BSF18E: only one pin that I know of

                          Is that about right? Does the BSF use all long pins? I would say not: when Val eagled the quarter-miler, the pin was in the triple-trunk (short). I do wonder what the difference in SSA will be. I suppose if the SSA is lower such that the RPS is off, that will benefit the lower-rated players and teams, since they will get more "help" than the course demands? So I looked up the team rating difference for Pizzel's match:

                          Putt This!: 7637
                          Vapor Trails: 7146
                          difference: 491

                          for comparison, I did my own match:
                          The Good, The Bad, & The Sassy: 7278
                          Green Bowl Packers: 7256
                          difference: 22

                          So I guess it boils down to: "will the current course play more than 1.32 shots easier than the BSF course?" Lower-rated teams are hoping so!

                          PS: I am in the camp of the RPS being set before the match. As fair as dynamic RPS might be (using the SSA that was shot that day to determine the RPS and therefore the handicaps AFTER the fact), I don't like that you can not strategize nearly as effectively, since you don't really know what anyone's handicap is going to be. While I live for the flight of the disc like any of us, I truly enjoy the strategy element of Team Disc Golf as well. In addition, knowing where you are in your match, and knowing how hard you must press, adds a thrill to each round for me.

                            BSF1E: short = left (straighter, shorter shot). Correct
                            BSF2E: short = left (at the top of the slope, shorter shot, not up on the plateau). Correct
                            BSF3E: short = left (straight, behind the huge tree, no sharp turn to the right). Correct
                            BSF4E: short = short (same shot, just one less big tree to get past). Correct
                            BSF5E: short = right (straighter shot, no dog leg left at the end). Correct? Is in the more common placement used in tournys on slope next to big tree.
                            BSF6E: short = right (out in the field, not tucked left in big trees, about the same length?). No this one is in the little grove (left).
                            BSF7E: short = left (is that crazy pin no longer used, tucked left short?). No it is in the typical long placement.
                            BSF8E: ony one pin I know of. Correct.
                            BSF9E: is there a pin off to the right of the lone tree? is it shorter? (Genius). It is in the normal placement left of tree, not the mythical future longer placement.
                            BSF10E: short = left (not on bark nugget island in the parking lot). Correct (in the shortest of all 3 placements) Not BSF bark nugget island not the slighly raised green
                            BSF11E: ony one pin I know of. Correct
                            BSF12E: short? = left? I hear there is a new pin short of the island in the parking lot? correct and = the placement used last year during TDG
                            BSF13E: short = left. This one is behind big the fir tree with branches and needles all the way to the ground that is between basket and next tee.
                            BSF14E: short = right pin (triple trunk), the only short pad in TDG, "1/4 mile". Correct
                            BSF15E: short = left, short of the "nipple"? Correct
                            BSF16E: short = left (the combined hole) Correct the basket is out in the open
                            BSF17E: only one pin that I know of. Correct
                            BSF18E: only one pin that I know of. Correct
                            The above is as of yesterday.
