A network for South Dakota disc golf
2012 Singles league will be starting this Wednesday March 14th.
Hope to see many of you out there!
How does weather come into play? check the website? should we designate a weather discussion?
Typically we play in all conditions except severe storms and pouring rain. If the weather looks crappy to disc in, most people just won't show up.. so, if you feel like it might suck to play.. odds are most everyone else will feel the same and league turnout will be poor.
As far as the sanctioned league, it would be beneficial to play all 10 weeks of it (remember, the sanctioned stuff starts on April 4th, not this coming Wednesday) but only your top 5 weeks count towards the end standings. So, you should be sure to make it at least 5 times if you choose to participate.

I know it wasn't sanctioned, but how did the first day of league turn out?
I'll be there tomorrow. Hope to see a bunch out there.
I like that thought!
Hopefully it goes over well and we aren't "asked to leave" before the rounds can be completed. They just stuck a ton of money into that place and might be a little protective of it. Maybe I'm too pessimistic...

After talking to a few people, it sounds like a popular idea to try to set up a temp course at Perry Nature Area off of Hwy 42. Sounds like Wilson and some guys are willing to set it up for us. Only thing we need to make sure we have is 9 available baskets. I have a Discatcher sports, so that's 1, who else out there has baskets we can use? We need to figure out if this is going to work now, so we're not waiting until the last day to decide.
i dont think putting a course there is a good idea either. its not the sort of activity the area is intended for. not that i really believe playing there would hurt anything. i personally think a regular multiple use park area would be a much better option. i would rather play a sanctioned round not having to worry about the cops being called. we need to be realistic in our thinking about this sort of stuff. you cant just play a round anywhere just because it has nice terrain and features. if someone talks to the sf patks dept ahead of time and gets permission, then ill come. otherwise, no.
what about tomar park? many of us have layed out holes or played tree golf down in that area.
I'm with Wheeler for going to Tomar. Tut is probably going to be busy since the weather will be nice. There won't be any people to wait on at Tomar.
tuthill would be a good option. we have a long history of pdga rated rounds there. it would be interesting to see how league rounds compare. i would be all for playing a temp course wherever people decide to and have time to set it up. i wont have time, we are going back to ten hour days. bummer! i do have a portable innova basket and a lightning d5 if needed.
i didnt get out by the big sioux. hopefully it will dry up in a couple weeks time.
