How exactly is this going to work? Everyone who signs up over the 72 full field # will then be moved to the woods (how many rounds in the woods) and when will we know if we are in either the standard 18 or moved into the woods. Dont mean any harm just that the difference between the 2 are not well defined as how it will work. You still the man Keith, great series.

The Events have SEPARATE Signups as they are separate Events.
The Woods Event Players will be the only ones who can get into the GSSS #6 Event as the "non waitlist waitlist people"
There will also be a Waitlist with NO CHARGES once the 2 SEPARATE Events are sold out.
Players that drop from Event # 6 will be replaced by the people in order of signup for the Woods Event if they want the spot.
As those people come out of the Woods Event to Event #6 the people on the NO CHARGE Waitlist will be asked if they wish to play the Woods Event in the order they signed up, and if so, then they will be given an online link to signup for the Woods Event at that time.

There are only 43 spots available for the GSSS# 6 Event and there are only 36 Spots available (9 holes times 4 players) for the Woods Event.
Both Events will play 54 holes(36 Sat and 18 Sunday) for ALL players and a final 9 will be held for the top 4 OPEN, PRO Masters, ADV Men From Event #6 and top 4 in OPEN and ADV ONLY (if there are 4 players in those divisions) from the Woods Event which will be held on the 18 Hole course.

Seems like it shouldn't be that hard to figure out, but maybe laying it out line by line will make it easier to figure out. :mrgreen:

Keep in mind also that I will not have computer access tomorrow while at Hotlanta or watching fireworks or on Sunday until late in the evening, so any comments or questions will NOT be answered until late Saturday night or Late Sunday night.

Only 36 spots left for the Woods at Lake Russell the same weekend (which is also the Official waitlist and the ONLY way to get into the GSSS #6 Event if someone drops out)

The time stamps are confusing me on some of the above posts. Why all the people getting in before 12 AM. I wonder if I got the last spot since I got my confirmation at 2:34 AM. Hey Woody, shouda wouda coulda. Have fun in the Woods Woodrow.

If anyone signed up in the first 3 hours when the 43 spots SOLD OUT! and saw there order go thru, you should be in - as when it was sold out it did not let you sign up.
If you signed up for the Woods Event you will be the ones contacted in order of signup for the Woods Event if anyone drops out of GSSS #6.

I'd advise you to signup for the Woods Event if you think you might go, because last year 21 spots changed over in the last 12 days as people's plans changed. It is still TEN weeks away. And if the Woods Event fills up and sells out and you still are planning on going to Lake Russell sign up for the waitlist when it gets turned on in case people signed up for the Woods Event plans change.

Thanks in ADVANCE to the 108 possible players for participating in whichever capacity you are for the best vacation weekend of Disc Golf in the state of Georgia which is my opinion as a player(it's a little more hectic of a weekend vacation as a TD. :mrgreen: )

As Chris was over here as Co-TD of Hotlanta this weekend, he hasn't sent me the orders yet so I do not know who has gotten in yet. When I get the emails from Chris I will update the PDGA site, which hasn't had any people to add until these orders as it went on sale 7/4/09.

I know 43 people names will be added when I know who those 43 people are.

I will also start a thread for the Woods Event on the ADGO message board and will list the names there (not in this thread to keep the clutter down in this thread) in order of timestamp.

Nuts and bugs?? Sounds like what Vern found when he reached up the skirt of that "chick" who was eyeing him up at the bar last Saturday night!

After 10 days of having no phone or internet at home service for the most part due to ATT rerouting lines on Highway 140, I have access again - but due to getting up in 5 hours, I'll update PDGA website TUES night sometime after 7PM.

Some interesting stats from the signups:
38 spots gone in less than 3 hours :shock:
43 spots gone in less than 6 hours

8 people signed up in the first minute
20 people in the first 5 minutes
26 people in the first 10 minutes :mrgreen:
33 people in the first hour

First online entry - Gerrit Van Vranken
Last online entry - Mel Shuman

Everyone's favorite local did not signup for either Event and so far would be at least 5th on the waitlist at the time of this post.
ONLY 31 Woods spots left, so signup for that if you wish to play disc golf during the weekend at Lake Russell!

No, I can't. But it wasn't so much the husky voice that threw me off but I should have caught on the way she led when were slow dancing.

BTW...If we hurry we can get in a few more stupid posts before Keith's internet connection is fixed. Hopefully the rains slowed the ATT crew down a bit. Then we will have to be serious and I can concentrate on my goal of dominating and winning the PRO MASTER division.

See the PROS and ADV can signup on time if they want to. :mrgreen:
21 total Pros with 24 ADV and 6 ADV Masters making 51 of the 72 spots.
Only 11 of the 43 available spots went to REC players.

So in the future - whining will be even less tolerated. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lake Russell means one thing to some people, Chop's Cheesecake!!

I'm doing another "Chuck for the Cheesecake" this year. It will benefit the ClifFund and it will be Hole #11.
It will work the same way as last year. For the two rounds on Saturday the four closest people who have entered will get a quarter of a Chop's Pumpkin Cheesecake.TM Pending There will be a tape measure and paper by the basket to measure and record. I have yet to determine buy in cost ($2-$5) as sometimes people add extra items(hint ,hint) but will keep you posted as it gets closer to the tourney.

For the uninitiated: I am not going to brag and tell you how good Chop's Pumpkin Cheesecake.TM Pending is but even if you are not a cheesecake fan, get in on a chance to win it. There are some golfers who will trade cash, discs and even sexual favors (Q?) for just that little elbow of crust on the outer edge of the cake. I will, if I am one of the lucky 4, have a $1 a throw CTP for my quarter after round 2. I will be around the sign up table Saturday morning so don't miss out on a taste of a Lake Russell Open tradition!

After visiting yesterday and spend 5 hours prepping the entire 27 holes for 3 weeks from now, the only change from last years layout will be hole 13 as the hillside postion has NOT been maintained and it's not worth spending 2 hours to get it ready.
ALL areas between baskets to next tees have been trimmed, stray branches have been removed, the little stuff growing in the fairways cut down and the basket and tee areas cleaned. Several trees had gone down on the 18 hole course slightly making Hole 1 slightly easier and the right side of Hole 12 by the basket a little more open. Others being down made being off the fairway a little bit more tricky to recover from depending on your lie.
The woods holes have had all the branches, downed trees and logs removed from the "main" fairways, and anyone who has played any of the 27 holes in the past few weeks won't recognize the place when they return 3 weeks from now. :mrgreen:

The fairways on 1 and 18 have been mowed the past week (visible from the road) and the other 16 holes were mowed at beginning of August and probably will not be mowed again before the Event. The grass in the fairways is low and not a problem.
The rough is higher than in the past as they did not mow it down as the usually do every November due to the budget crisis, but it is still not tall enough to keep anyone from throwing out of it.

Times and Hole descriptions will be posted soon.

See everyone in less than 3 weeks!

I need more accurate information as to the length and status of the lawns at Lake Russell from now til game day, as well as the maintenance staff schedules and fertilizers/chemicals being used. This stuff can't just be sprung on us at the last minute!

That will give me lots of time to throw logs, sticks, snakes, and other shule back on to the course in the evening. I also sprayed 4000 gallons of
Miracle Grow to get the grass to exactly 23" high in the fairways and 42" high in the rough (Andrew - there is your exact height of the grass) 8)

UPDATE!!

Just got off the phone with the Park Manager at Lake Russell Keith Whittaker who said all 18 of the fairways have now been mowed. They are also taking PVC pipes to mark the other pin locations and he said they might get to clean the hillside area of hole 13.
If so we MAY play that position on Sunday.

He also said someone had complained that the rough needed to be mowed down to the same length as the fairways. We both had a good laugh over that concept. He had checked on several courses in the PDGA directory which talked about having rough with BRIARS and VINES, and he said that at least their rough is all grassy and is no more than 20-24 inches high which still allows people to throw from it.
He said it will get cut again in November as usual and whatever height it grows to is where it will be until next November. :mrgreen:

I look forward to the continued partnership with the park for all future Disc Golf Events and I look forward to playing at this jewel of a course in Georgia.

What's the big secret?

Why do you hide the board in between rounds? Are you going to be doing this at Lake Russell too?

In my experience and from the players I have talked to (and it's alot of them), we wanna know where we stand after the first round or any round for that matter, as soon as the scores are tallied and organized. It gives us something to discuss during lunch. It also allows the player to make some decisions. For example: If I am tied for 2nd, with 1 stroke behind the leader, and there are a few of us that are neck and neck with a shot to win; than I would spend my time at lunch differently (quickly eat and go practice) than being in the middle of the pack (time to goof off and hang with the bros).
Some tournaments go as far as to scroll the scores across a digital display. Some print them out and post them in multiple places. Some even post it on the website asap. You hide yours like it's some big secret? Why? Please explain.

Because then you'll come back and "hopefully" pay attention to any changes or announcements made before the second round.
By the way it is always available as Brett and I sort it and rearrainge it for the second round, and then it's MY time to eat and get ready for the next round.

Every TD is welcome to handle things their way, and having the 2nd player meeting is my way, just like the 2 meter rule - it is not always some players favorite way, but it is my way.

Imran,
There's your CORRECT answer in a nutshell, and then when things happen in the first round like at Deerlick that need to be addressed for everyone, no one knows and things go wrong - Even with people knowing things still went wrong, so I can't imagine what would have happened if I didn't remind everyone to be nice to the other park patrons.

There is almost always something that comes up, or something I see playing in the first round that needs to be covered, and to do that there has to be people to convey it to. If holes change because of droputs - which always happens, weather issues, etc. and you aren't there, then things have to be conveyed individually instead of telling everyone at 1 time.

If you or anyone can't give up 5 minutes before heading out for the 2nd round to be there, then don't play in my Events, as it won't bother me 1 bit - and that will mean that someone else who wants to play and doesn't mind a 2nd players meeting for 2-5 minutes will get a chance to play.

I don't mind giving you five minutes or ten if need. I just want to look at the board and take some time to see whats going on. Not only with me but with all my friends. Not look what hole I'm on and rush to it like I had to do three times last year at Russell, not fun at all. It may seem petty but that is one of the major reasons I only play in one of the GSSS. It just really bugs me.

Damn, I wish you would have told me sooner, I'll just keep you from looking at it this year then so you won't have to stress out and you can have a good time. If last year you had to look at what hole you were on and then rush to it - A) you weren't at the meeting, or B) weren't listening when your name was called, or C) are really slow at grasping what hole you're on as there is always at least 15-20 minutes before the rounds start at EVERY GSSS Event and you could crawl to any hole at Lake Russell from Tournament Central in 15 minutes - so I'm NOT buying your excuses mister. :lol:
But thanks for your opinion!

If you want to see how you and your buddies are doing, hang around for 15 or so minutes after your round and look when we reset the board, or hang around and look at the board during the time I'm calling out all 18 holes and just listen for what hole YOU are on while you are looking (multi-tasking) :mrgreen:

Postby Imran » Wed Sep 02, 2009 2:25 pm

Is there anyway we could maybe accomplish both? Meaning, put the board up during lunch for viewing (the full 1 hour) while also attracting all players to the 2nd meeting.
You did say that the board is up for the first 1/2 hour. Please consider that many players leave the premises to get lunch and when they return it is usually in the 2nd half of lunch. I totally understand the idea that some player will just view the board and take off to their holes. Which, in my opinion, is their own damn fault for missing the very important 2nd players meeting. If their lucky, maybe someone in their group stuck around for the meeting like they were asked to. Either way, if you would make an exception this once at Lake Russell and keep the board up, I will volunteer to be your personal "get your ass to the players meeting" shout out boy. I can also make a few signs that say "Mandatory Players Meeting"
Maybe it could work...

P.S. - While I do enjoy playing in your events and the payouts are always awesome. My biggest complaint would be not getting to view the scoreboard. That always seems to be the discussion at lunch. Instead of talking about where we stand, we talk about why the board isn't visible and where we hope we stand. Then worrying about whether we really should be sitting around here or out there working on parring the nemesis hole. Not trying to nit-pick at your methods, but just relaying the voice of many players who pay to play in your events. Think of it as feedback.

Looking forward to another great Lake Russell Event. Thanks again for running the action out there!

Also, Clunck makes a very good point. I too like to sit and study the board and see how all my friends are doing.
I like to review all of the divisions. It's really difficult to do that with some time constraints.
I'm sure you have a counter arguement for every complaint. Again, this is just player feedback, in which I feel like your tuning Clunck out and just counter arguing. Although what he said is very true for myself as well and many other players also. It's not really a right or wrong issue here. It's just preference.

Since I've told you what I don't like most, I guess it would be cool to mention what I do like the best.
I really really like the fact that your player packs aren't always a disc. My mouse pad is working out awesome in my office. :mrgreen: Thanks bro!

Feedback and things noticed from year 1 are why some things changed in this year - and why things will change again in certain areas next year - again for the better I hope.

My TD style will most likely not change a whole lot due to A) I've had it work well for 14 years, B) I'm stubborn, and C) I don't NEED to reinvent the way Events are run, just improve areas that REALLY need it in my opinion.
I have taken things that I see from all the Events I play around the county and in the state, and incorporate things I see done well, and leave out things people dislike.

If the board is the only thing I have to worry about, then I'm ok with it. I've been to lots of BIG Events where you NEVER saw the board until the holes were called out, and I've been to Events where you could set the board however you wanted and have 5 and 6 somes with 3 somes and open holes, along with lots of varying ways in between - but in the end, everyone kinda already had an idea how they are sitting from talking with friends, or finding out when they look at the board before it closes or during the calling of names.

You guys will just have to adjust your lunch schedules - check board first, then go eat and discuss how badly you and your buddies are getting their butt's kicked, the same way Brett and I whine to each other while we are doing the scores and posting for the next round BEFORE we eat and get ready.

Thanks for thanks on the different items for players packs - that's one of the things that came from seeing things that myself and other players noticed, and also with the fact that since I'm trying to SELL GSSS discs, it's kinda silly to give away discs, especially for 6 Events.

One other thing - and please take this the right way - I'm NOT discounting what you or Chad is saying - and I do listen to what is said about the Events, but in MY opinion, the board is not a deal maker on the majority of players playing or not playing GSSS Events - and is a lower priority item on things I'm working on to improve the Series for 2010.

THANKS again for your input!

It seems alot of people have too much time to think about their next complaint. He who runs the show gets to pick hows it done. What is so hard about this concept, I know its fun to B.S. the TD but make it intresting like the 2 meter rule. Keith, make the complainers walk the furthest, hole 14 sounds good. :twisted:

Count me in for another vote to have the board displayed for as much time as possible before and between rounds. I realize Keith will probably never change his mind as he can see the board whenever he wants to and this is obviously not a democracy.

Hole 14 doesn't scare me, I always start there. See you there Clunck and Imran.

And thanks for running things Keith.

also, I will be selling swine flu shots on site. in case someone catches it from handling the scorecards.
You can't see the shot, but trust me... It's for the swine flu. You can see if after I've given it to you.

Check - why add the extra punishment of a penalty stroke when you are already punished distance and difficult lie - it has never made any sense to me. Don't even get me started that many out there do not know what 2 meters is.

i vote to have the board available in between rounds as well, its really nice to have a scoreboard to knwo what everyone is doing.

I also think it would be cool to keep the scoreboard posted right outside your tent, so all nigth long when we want to look at it and talk shit we can come to your site and keep u up! :)

With the Woods Event players filling the drop out spots in the GSSS Event, there are several spots available for the Woods Event - which is still the ONLY way to have a chance to enter the GSSS Event if there are drop outs from the GSSS Event.

You can signup to guarantee yourself a chance to play in a competitive Disc Golf event for only 25 bucks next weekend here: http://www.sdsproshop.com/pd-lake_russell_open.cfm

See everyone in 8 days!

Everybody that signed up for the Woods Event has been covered in the main Event for the second year in a row, so I'm really curious about the Lake and why over 15 people 2 years in a row schedule /come up with / or have different things happen to them that weekend every year where they drop out. :shock:

I think next year Lake Russell goes on sale the week of with you paying me double if you drop. :mrgreen:

What if you get cancer and can't play? but then your surgery is a huge success and you can play? but then the TD asks you to come play the woods holes at LR and you get pissed cause that's just insulting? but then if you said yes you really could've played the real course? Or what if the TD listened to everyone the first year and adjusted the way people register the second year? because then you could play the real course and you wouldn't be insulted by being asked to play the woods holes? but either way at tourney time you can't play because you said no to the wood holes after the insult, registration was full but not really, and the TD didn't listen the first year? also what if someone gets drunk and pukes all sat. morning and can't play? should I be there just in case? should I leave fri. night or sat. morning just to make sure I get a spot? is there really a spot that opens with no official waitlist? is there an unofficial waitlist if there is no official waitlist? so my question is...will anyone know what the hell is going on before the 45 minute long players meeting on sat. morning?


ANSWER: no! not even the TD. but thank the lord all the distances are posted otherwise the players would be lost!

Are you drinking before you even get to the lake?
Nothing you posted is accurate, makes sense or even deserves a response - all you had to do was read and it is pretty self explanatory how the GSSS Events worked last year and also how they worked for this year.
But you know me, I don't like to let people misconceptions linger or draw other people (like Josh) to the wrong conclusions - so here it goes.

The GSSS main post has been stickied since October 29th in case anyone even needed to read it again, plus there is even another website (www.supersixseries.com) with all the info so in case you missed it on the ADGO site, you could read it there. :mrgreen:

Please pay attention in a few weeks - because all the changes and info on the 2010 Series including the A-Tier Finale will be posted on both websites, and I don't want you - Rob McElreath to miss out on anything. By the way you could have just called and asked if you couldn't read since you have my phone number, or better still you could have asked me in person at White Oak 2 weeks ago when we spent the entire first round together instead of posting some incomprehendable gibberish here. :roll:

Glad to see you out and about again,

First of all he hasn't asked me to consider him for any spot that may come available - Second he would need 2 people (as of this EXACT moment of the post) to NOT show up Saturday morning - Third he would have to be there Saturday morning so if 1&2 happened he would be able to get in - Fourth he would need to have the entry fee in cash in case 1,2, & 3 happen and....

Fifth - since he hasn't done #1 it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

I'm just making a last minute check before finishing up loading the Van and ran into Rob's whatever it is...I read it again and still don't know what he is talking about that isn't out there already, been explained to him when he asked something similar last year already, or easily figured out with 5 seconds of reading.

Glad I could amuse you. :mrgreen:

This is kinda hard for me to post, but i feel that i need to be responsible and let everyone know who i came into contact with this weekend that i was diagnosed with swine flu this morning. I started feeling a little sick saturday night and into sunday, as the day progressed sunday i felt worse and worse. I went to the doctor this morning because i could barely walk or sit still from my fevers.

Again i am sorry if i infected anyone but it is highly contagious, I will not be at work this week. I am still iffy about what i am going to do for the Augusta Classic. The doctor said it could be the entire week though, it just depends on when the fever subsides. Hopefully i can rely on some club members to help me run the tournament, and i will defiantly not be there if im still sick, so dont be scared to come or not sign up.

Smooth Tournament as always Keith. Thanks!

I'm glad something went well this weekend. It sort of made up for the leaking propane that made me cancel the family camping trip and end up driving back and forth to Lake Russell THREE times and also the broken fan belt in the RV making it overheat and did I mention the food poisoning that had me puking at 01:30 Sunday as a drunk kept trying to open the stall door?

I heard this was the most fun tournament of the year. It was certainly the most interesting...

Thanks FBJ. Now what I dont understand is why a couple of players on this list have southern miami street names from the late 80's

The upside:
I didn't puke!
The food definitly was not poison!
The only leaking gas was easily avoided by just standing upwind of the "leaker"!
I played a round with a Funky Johnson, a Woody and Grease and am only minimally scarred!

The downside:
I played like crap.
The lake was chilly so I couldn't float for longer than one beer.
The only cabin side action money I won was the "nice try Jimmy award" for double bogeys and more(6)!
I had to leave.

Thanks Keith for everything and I'm glad you won a quarter of the cheesecake for Dawn, Again!

When I read the first sentence, I thought for a moment you were gonna break down and say you actually liked playing in one of my Events. :mrgreen:

I hope you get better soon!

I also hope shaking your hand several times and encouraging you to play well and look ahead in the last round when you were on the bubble doesn't cost my a trip to the doctors. :shock: :mrgreen:
I'm going to hope that my lifetime luck of NEVER having an adult make me sick no matter how sick they were will continue.

I look forward to you recovering quickly - according to recent news reports, it actually is overcome much faster (3-4 days) than the regular flu, it just sucks alot worse during those 3-4 days.

See you this weekend,
Keith

Why does rec division not have a round rating for the 2nd round?

Seems like Rec should have a round rating for the second, but not the 3rd round. The 2 first rounds were the same layout, so the propagators carry through. The 3rd round had a basket move, so Rec didn't have enough propagators to get a rating.

Am I wrong?

I don't know - it should as everything is listed correctly. I spoke with Dave Gentry and he couldn't find a reason for it to not be showing and he suggested I delete the results and repost them to the program to see if that will fix it, as it is also showing ratings for the final 9 which is not supposed to happen either.

I'll do that this evening as I don't have access here at work to the spreadsheet.

If it doesn't work for whatever reason, they will still be rated correctly when the process is done for the official ratings.

You only need 5 "Gators" to get ratings, all 7 are current and have ratings already, and all 7 REC players played the same course even with the basket move so that is not in play.

Is the par set at 54 because it's saying that I was even but really on a 54 layout I was 3 over from the first round.

Par is correct and is set at 55 as Hole 16 is a par 4.

Redid everything and nothing changed. It will be right for the Official ratings and they will be calculated in your stats correctly.

My stats are showing the following for REC.

SSA = 49.03 (very close to long tees)
--------------------R1------R2
Brian Lang-------883-----947
Scott Crackel-----883----904
Mark Spaugh-----883----819
Brad Traylor------851----861
Ty Bisbee---------797----819
Ethan Bowers-----765----754
Amy Bowers----- 669----754


It looks a little high to me as well but R1 is just a little bit higher than the PDGA unofficial results and ratings tend to be higher once they are official.

You guys must have been sleeping in the rough, because I tromped through the course setting up, tearing down, preparing it, cutting dead stuff, raking, sweeping, playing and bringing water jugs through 4 fairways of rough walking in a straight line, and never got 1 tick / chigger.

Of course it could be my animal magnetism(cue REEdan Randy) that repelled them. :mrgreen:
