Wednesday Weekly League - Week 25

We had 78 players on Wednesday with some really nice weather. Low humidity and just enough of a breeze to keep the bugs away. We had our first ace on the General at league. Brian Hagan got his first ever ace on Hole 2 for $120! Ashley Toomey shot a 61 on the General which was only beaten by 2 of the other 26 competitors on that course (and only by one stroke).

Start time will be shifting to 5:15 Hill and 5:00 cuttoff General this coming week. ALL 3somes for both courses so plan ahead for your General groups.

Bag Tag Bonanza! Don't forget that you receive a raffle ticket for each league night you attend. Here is a wrap up post for last years Bonanza. Look at all these prizes! Give yourself the best shot at going home with something by attending as often as possible. Lots of people have been playing often without a tag and now is the time to buy yours so you can be eligible to play in the Bonanza and win raffle prizes. I have about 20 tags left. I'm working on a large Devens Disc Golf sticker for your car and a pint glass with the grenade logo on it for the players pack this year. Also throwing in a birdie bag for everyone too.

Here is another league status report

We still have 8 people with perfect attendance:

John Rodenhizer
Joe Decarolis
Dean Onners
Josh St. Denis
Jared Reinke
Sam Misuraca
Brian Hagan
Jeremy Draeger

Our Average attendance is 67.2 players per week and we have had a total of 1,680 players over 25 weeks. 204 unique players and 153 tags sold. Both the total unique players and tags sold are higher than all of last year already and the 67.2 players per week is about 7.5 more players per day than last year.

Current Pool Leaders:

A Pool (30 points still up for grabs. Alex is catching up to Aaron quickly! Only 18 points now separate the top two while only a month ago the gap was more like 38 points.. Aaron only has 1 attendance point remaining while Frank Alex and others have a few more. )
Aaron Little - 86 points
Alex Gula - 68
Frank Strauss - 53
Donnie Phillips - 46
Taylor Maslowski - 46
Bill Bertera - 46
Donnie Phillips - 46
Bob Kulchuk - 40
Pete Nevius - 38


B Pool (30 points still up for grabs. Jared, Brandon and Corey have all moved up to the A pool so points will be a little harder to come by but they have made some good pushes the last few weeks, especially Jared! At this point, most places could go to any player in contention but if everyone currently below Gator doesn't start racking up points within the next week or two the list will be a lot smaller. Jared is out of attendance points and Brandon and Corey are almost out of attendance points but their chasers all have several more coming in. Gator is getting close too!)
Jared Reincke - 80 points
Brandon Bowen - 73
Corey Johnson - 59
Gator Holmes - 58
Adam Stander - 44
Ryan Shevlin - 40
Mark Sobota - 37
Sam Misuraca - 37

C Pool (18 points still up for grabs. Jesse and Rich have moved to B pool so points will be a bit harder to come by. B pool points are a higher value so if they do place in B it adds up a bit quicker in C so if they continue to place in B pool they could win a final 3 payout in C pool. All competitors have a solid amount of attendance points remaining as well.)
Jesse Cleary - 56 points
Rich Spinale - 51
Sean Coyne - 41
Anthony Frongillo - 40
Alex MacLean - 34
Brian Hagan - 31
Jeremy Draeger - 30
Donald Tucker - 30
Dan Garvey - 29

Womens Pool (18 points remaining though sometimes Toomey plays in B pool and can rack up 5 points for placing there. Pretty sure Jacki and Fallon have locked up 1st, 2nd or 3rd so its up to Toomey to keep the rest of the chasers out of the top 3! All ladies have plenty of attendance points left.)
Jacki Bogan - 55 points
Fallon Enman - 52
Ashley Toomey - 40
Ashlee Foley - 29
Ashley Jollimore - 27
Kim Krieser - 27
Nicki MacLean - 26

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 24 Results

We had 80 players on Wednesday which is our third highest attendance of the leagues existence!  Since that # was so high and we still had just enough daylight to finish the rounds we are going to stick with a 5:30 start on the hill but in 3somes as best we can! This means longer starting walks as we need to use more holes. We will stick with 4 somes on the General but move the cut off down to 5pm for that course. Get there early.

I've been having some difficulty with one of my sorting functions which kept the spreadsheet from sorting out the starting tag number field properly. It had something to do with the way the handicap formula was written. This meant that I had to eyeball everyone who fell within a certain score to try and give tags out in the proper order but in the process I have messed up a bunch, especially when there was 5 or more of the same score. When I wasn't  able to just simply read the list from top to bottom I often skipped someone or gave out lower tags to the wrong people. I was getting away with this for the most part but its starting to become noticeable so I asked for help and Bill Bertera was able to tell me what I was doing wrong! A simple fix is in place and that shouldn't happen again. Sorry!

Bag Tag Bonanza! Don't forget that you receive a raffle ticket for each league night you attend. Here is a wrap up post for last years Bonanza. Look at all these prizes! Give yourself the best shot at going home with something by attending as often as possible.

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 23 Results

We had 72 players last night. Pretty exciting stuff going on with Frank getting an ace on hole 2 with both sons on his card! 8 new players and 5 new tags sold last night. 3 way tie for first with a 50 as well. We have 8 weeks left and I would absolutely love to hit my goal of 2000 players for the year. We need to average 60 players for the next 8 weeks, think we can do it? Show up over the next 8 weeks, earn your points and we will celebrate a successful year at the Bag Tag Bonanza.

Speaking of the Bag Tag Bonanza! Don't forget that you receive a raffle ticket for each league night you attend. Here is a wrap up post for last years Bonanza. Look at all these prizes! Give yourself the best shot at going home with something by attending as often as possible. Lots of people have been playing often without a tag and now is the time to buy yours so you can be eligible to play in the Bonanza and win raffle prizes. I have about 20 tags left. I'm considering a large sticker for your car of the grenade tag and a pint glass with the same logo on it for the players pack this year. Any other ideas?

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 22 Results

Sorry for the delayed results. Was on vacation and am finally catching up. Thanks to Bill Bertera for running league for me last week. It is much appreciated. There were 58 players and no aces which brings the pot up to $136 + tomorrows money in.

We only have 9 league nights left for the season and very few 5:30 starts left (2 or 3?) so get out there and get your points and take a shot at the ace pot. Remember that the more you come to league the better chance for you to win raffle prizes during the bag tag bonanza.

Each pools handicap went up significantly last week. Not enough to shift the whole # but it was interesting to see.

Ladies have been playing the General a lot more lately!

Both Jared and Brandon backed up their move to A pool with great scores!

We are working out an issue with access via vehicle on the dirt road. Please refrain from driving down the road to your starting hole for now, thanks! Park at the nest and walk the rest of the way for those far out holes.

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 19 Results

We had another relatively light turnout last night with 61 players. Obviously, still great but I am a little baffled at the declining attendance #'s over the last 6 weeks or so. We have had mostly decent weather and we have been doing really well with getting out of there at a reasonable time lately. We actually finished by 8:20 last night so the texting of scores is really helping. I'm always looking for feedback so if there is a reason for the declining #'s  I'd  like to hear it.

Wednesday Weekly Results - Week 17 Results

We had an impressive 65 players considering a poor forecast. We almost got away without rain but most players ended up playing the last 2-4 holes with some heavy rain.

I have 3 goals for league:

1 - Give everyone something fun and inexpensive to do
2 - Raise $ for our courses and other local courses
3 - Get myself and everyone else on their merry way by 8:30pm

The implementation of the 2nd course at league has been great but it is truly difficult to get everyone to the correct hole and starting with their full group at the right time. Please help me to run this league well by forming your 4some and heading out to your starting hole then starting immediately. The last groups in at the end of the night are typically from the general and I really don't want to cut the General off any earlier than 15 minutes before the hill. I'd also like to have ALL groups from both courses text me their scores as soon as they complete their round and check the scores. I'll write my phone # down on each scorecard. This will help substantially. 617-905-6574 if you wanna store it in your phone now. Text is best. 

I feel like we have lost a lot of players who had been coming to this league and I'd  be willing to bet many of them would say that the reason they don't come anymore is because it runs too late.

Another beautiful night out at Devens. We had 64 players which was more than I expected with the Maple Hill Open players meeting and pro clinic going on not too far away. Couple of personal best scores out there. Pete Nevius with a great 50, Jared Reinke with a nice 52. Brandon Blanchard also smashed his personal best by 8-9 strokes  with a 54..

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 15 Results

Pretty nice weather but we had a lighter turnout than usual. I'm guessing a lot of our players had post Maple Hill Open - AM Side rest going on. For the first time ever we had more players on The General than The Hill. As a result, the hole assignments on the hill were a little messed up because we didn't reach 12 holes with 3 people on them. Seemed like it all worked out though with a little shifting around.

It was essentially the halfway point in the season (15/31 weeks) and we broke 1000 players! 1,005 to be exact. That brings us up to an average of 67 players per week.

162 unique players for the year

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 14 Results

Smashed the all time attendance record last night with 89 players. That is 5 more than the previous high of 84 and 11 shy of hitting our $100 for 100 players bounty.

Please help me to get players out on the course as efficiently as possible. If you are playing The General and have a predetermined group of players you wish to play with, please all check in at the exact same time. Once your group is set please go out and start playing immediately. If you wait than there becomes a backup since we only use 3 holes as starting holes on The General. It would be cruel to make people walk to further holes so please help me to help you. Last night the last 4 cards in were all from The General. If your card is coming in after 8:15pm pleeeaaase text me your scores. 617-905-6574

936 players over 14 weeks. That is an average of 66.85 players per week.

Sold another 2 tags and had 7 new players last night. I just counted 160 unique players for the year.

Jesse Cleary nailed the $218 ace pot on hole 13 on The Hill!

New Devens T Shirt Coming Soon!

We will be selling a T Shirt featuring the grenade from our 2015 tag. The shirts will usually be for sale at league and also at the Hawks Nest Disc Golf Shop. I am hopeful that we can get them in before The 28 Chain Salute so we can have them available to buy then as well.

All shirts will be $20 dollars will look similar to the images below. It sounds like we couldn't get ladies sizes in military green so they will be grey. Thank you for your support!

Workday - This Saturday

Reminder that we are having a workday this Saturday June 6th. We will begin at 9am from the Hawks Nest.

We have lots of little projects to be done and need lots of hands in order to complete the work. None of it should be too difficult. If you enjoy our courses, please consider coming out to help with improvements and maintenance. 

Sounds like there will be several small groups working on stair repair on hole 9 & hole 16 on The Hill and maybe 2 and 7 on The General.

We will also be adding benches, fixing spool tables and cleaning up trash. 

Need hammers, picks, spade shovels, weed whackers, clippers a wheel barrow or two and most of all you!

As usual, the course will provide pizza for lunch and beverages for volunteers.

Thank you!

New Tag Procedure for League

In an effort to get people on their way home from league a bit quicker along with the desire to make sure everyone goes home with a tag at the end of the night we are going to implement a small change that should hopefully make a big difference. 

I am going to eliminate the "ending tag" column from my Excel spreadsheet. At the end of your round you have the option to stay and wait for announcements, winners, and tag distribution or you can simply grab the highest #'d tag available on the board and head out. Tag numbers get higher the further you go down the board so you would grab the tag on the lowest portion of the tag board. You will be passing on any payouts or lower tags you might have otherwise been entitled to if you had stayed, but you will still receive all points you have earned for the night. In an ideal world everyone stays, socializes and has fun but I understand the need arises for people to leave and I'd like to give you the option to go home with a tag while minimizing the # of tags I carry around from week to week.

I'll call out the results in order as usual and if you do not come and get your tag we will simply move on to the next player and available tag instead of putting it aside.  

Any questions??



Wednesday Weekly League - Week 12 Results

We had 65 players on a warm and windy (AGAIN!) night. Some heavy thunderstorms threatened but never actually reached us.

773 total player over the first 12 weeks. That is an average of 64.4 per night.

130 tags sold and about 142 unique players have been part of the league. Thank you for your support of the courses!!

For those who haven't heard. We are putting up an additional $100 to the payout the first time we hit 100 players. Our attendance #'s seem to be leveling off in the mid 60s so i'm thinking that time we hit 82 players was a fluke and we won't hit it this year. Prove me wrong next week!
