Wednesday Weekly League - Week 11 Results

55 players last week. We all played a handicap setting round on The Hill Alt basket positions and it turned out to be essentially the same average across the A & B pools and overall as well. C pool shot a little worse on the new positions and D pool a little better but the sample sizes were pretty small for those divisions.  We are going to just set the handicap at 0 for now and will keep an eye on the Hill Alt averages and will adjust as needed. We should be good to resume normal General play tomorrow. .

ACE:
None

Pro Pool: Casey White $30

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 10 Results

65 players last night. We had some great weather and some hot shooting! Things seemed to run super smooth and we were driving out of there at a record early time.

We will be shifting the Hill into the Alt basket positions this Sunday and we will be playing the Hill on those alts next week @ league. We haven't been able to properly set the course handicap so in an effort to gather as much course data as possible we will only be playing the Hill. The General will not be open for league play next week. It will be mixed groups and a shotgun start of 5:30pm. Please be checked in before 5:20pm. If we end up with more than 72 players we will add some 5somes into the mix. We should have enough daylight for this.

ACE:
John Buonsanto - Hole 11 Hill $98

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 9 Results

66 players last week on a hot and muggy night. Looks like tomorrows league will finally be really nice weather! Not 55 with a chance of rain or 90  and humid. Splitting the difference there sounds great!

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 8 Results

71 players last night which is the highest of the season so far. Our average number of players is now over 62 per night. Long range forecast looks good for next Wednesday. Looks like we could finally get a nice warm evening! 

Thanks for your continued cooperation with the General cards. The flow worked well and we got out of there at a reasonable time again! The course held 40 people last night and sold out by 4:30pm.

ACE:

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 6 Results

64 players, a little bit rainy/moist but a decent night overall.

The last groups from the General were late coming in again and we are going to try to address this so we are not all waiting around at the end of the evening.

ACE: David Rich hole #10 on The Hill.
Pro Pool: Travis Milem $30
Handicap: John Murin Jr $28


We will be adjusting the divisional pools this weekend which means you will be moved up a division if your average scores dictate the need to do so. The first 6 weeks are a free period so you won't be docked any points for this move. We will  be doing another division check after 12 weeks and points will be docked a little since it's easier to score points in the lower divisions. The percentage increased throughout the year.

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 5 Results

65 players, light rain on and off throughout the round, turned heavy as the night was finishing. 

The last group from General was late coming in, we think this is because an early group from 12 got around to 1 before they started. We'll be telling early groups that go out to watch out if they loop around to 1 or 9 before or at 5pm, to look for groups that are starting and let them play through.

ACE: Aaron Little hole #11 on The Hill.
Pro Pool: Christopher Collette $50
Handicap: Casey White $14

Next week we'll be moving to our final start times: 5pm General, 5:30 Hill (5:20 sign-in). We will probably say if you want a 4-some on the General you need to go out by 4:30. 3-somes after that for 1 more week.

Wednesday Weekly League - Week 4 Results

Weather was looking iffy but the rain moved out just in time and it ended up being pretty nice! We had 65 players and we finished in plenty of time so we can continue moving the start time up another 15 minutes so Hill tee off is 5:15pm (be checked in by 5:10pm) and the General cuts off at 5pm.

ACES (worth additional point in standings & $$) - Dean Slowey Hill hole #2

Ace pot #1 at $0 plus next weeks money in

Chris Collette took down the $50 pro pool and Casey White won the $18 handicap pool.

Please check this link and email devensdiscgolf@gmail.com if you wish to move into a different pool. We will be moving players up divisions in a few weeks. That link also provides your current handicap.

Weather that wasn't completely awful brought out a crowd of 63 players tonight! Forecast for next week looks sweet so hopefully that stays nice. We will be moving the start time up another 15 minutes so Hill tee off is 5pm (be checked in by 4:55pm) and the General cuts off at 4:45pm.

Thanks for helping us shuffle several players around the course at the last minute. More players opted for the general than expected so we had to fill out some twosomes on the hill.

Wednesday Weekly League Starts This Wednesday!

I know this is lengthy but we have a pretty complex league going on here! Please do read it all if you plan to play this year. I’ll start off by asking that if you haven’t purchased your tag yet this year please sign in a bit earlier. It takes a few minutes to get a user account going and we can’t start late at this time of the year. Please also pay close attention to the sign in screen as you check in as it will give you your specific hole assignment along with optional side pot entry. It’s pretty much the same system as late year as far as the user can see aside from the optional side pots.

See ya on Wednesday!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Wednesday Weekly returns on March 22nd. Come get your 2017 bag tag and be signed in and ready to go by 4:10pm (4:00pm for The General). This was once again the most popular league in New England last year (2,213 golfers came out) and we are aiming to improve league again this year so come join the fun.  We are working behind the scenes to improve the automated system and add a few more options and bonuses into the league.

Biggest improvements this year will be:

You have the option to pick up your winnings or bank the winnings to be paid at the end of the year.

We are eliminating the Women’s Division and will be adding a D pool. All players will be entered into a division by average. You can always play up divisions if you wish. See below for divisional breakdown.

You had the option to prepay for the year @ $150. This price includes the tag fee so you save $ if you come to at least 26 weeks of league which over 30 of you did last year.

There will be an optional handicap pool open to all players and the person with the best handicapped score winning all of the money ($1 entry and we expect 20-30 people to enter each week). If 30 or more players enter than we may pay out 2 spots.

There will be an optional high stakes pool @ $10 per player (open to all players). We expect that 10 people or so will enter each week so shoot the hot score among those 10 people and win $100. 

Bill Bertera, Tim Seiger, Aaron Little and Luke Adolph will rotate running league. This will  keep everyone fresh and flexible. If you see Bill, Tim or Aaron please thank them for keeping league afloat because I couldn’t continue in the previous format alone.

We will tighten up hole assignments

We will also put many, many back end improvements into place to make management of this league feasible. Give Tim the biggest hug ever when you see him..

Workdays This Weekend - Installing Alt Basket Sleeves

Who wants to build a new disc golf course at Devens?

Well here is your opportunity to help. It may not be a whole new course, but we are planning to install alternate pin positions for all 18 holes on The Hill in time to use them for Hill Yeah 2017 (or sooner). This weekend we begin.

Digging holes and installing new sleeves is a relatively quick process. We need a few volunteers to help this Saturday or Sunday (we will work both days). Even if you are playing Team Challenge one day, come on out the other to help (I hear there’s food).

If you have been meaning to help out, but have not been able to, this is a good opportunity to contribute. Please post here if you can help. We will start at 9am each day. Meet at the Hawk's Nest.
