Week 1 results are up: http://home.comcast.net/~accuspeed/LL10/Week01.htm
Wow, we had an incredible 54 players just in week 1! Thanks to everyone who came out to League. Too bad we did not have food, let's hope for better luck next week. Also, if you have a group that would like to donate food, even on a one-time basis, we would certainly welcome and appreciate it, just contact me.
A CTP prize of a free paid round of League (week 2) was donated by Garrett Shields
! Gawain Stern
won it, overdriving hole 5 by about 12 feet with a Champion Roadrunner, and cashing the deuce putt.
, David Traina
, and Tyler Miller
posted hot raw scores of 33, but of course the real money is in the adjusted score, and Dan Brown
blew away the field with a 34.70 adjusted score, taking first place, 54 points, and $40.00.
Some course issues were raised, and we are looking for solutions. There are still issues with trespassing, trampling, climbing on buildings, littering, dogs, and illicit drug use. We may need to move holes, remove holes, erect barriers like nets, fences, trees, shrubs, educate players, etc. Volunteer effort and contributions are needed and appreciated; I plan to implement a Bucket Brigade where each group will bring an empty trash bucket to their first hole before the round, and bring in the full bucket from their finishing hole at the end. Garrett said he could help with poles/netting, and this is the kind of help that will keep this course in the ground.
Tournament players are rarely the problem, and everyone was helpful and cooperative. Players that had discs go OB onto private property refrained from trespassing (some after a little reminding) and instead reported their missing discs so that we can try to recover them properly.
Jeff was out on the tractor mowing, and that sure made the course a lot more playable. The weather was awesome, and the evening light was spectacular as always. Week 1 is always a little rough logistically, and it took a long time to get the scores up, so we turned the players loose and informed them that they will get their payout at next week's event. Now that most of the Week 1 kinks are worked out of the system, Week 2 should run a lot more smoothly.
I would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we wrestle through the issues and get League running smoothly. I really appreciate all the help I got this week, like from Sam Gibson, Pat Darr, Andy Verhoeven, Lonell Greene, Chris Graham, Garrett Shields
, and so many others.
