Re: Looking for Disc Golf News

I just dug through some old photos and found photos of Bud's excellent filing from our planning meetings for Oxdisc Last Chance Saloon (2005, I believe). Nobody does planning or stats or filing as well as Bud. Sometimes it would drive you potty, but boy, it was great to have someone with so much kno...

Re: Manchester Disc Golf Course

That's where the old Chevron boys play disc golf - they've already got 18 "holes" through the park. They wouldn't all work with baskets, but some of them certainly would. We should definitely get htem involved, and it might finally convince them to start coming to tournaments. They're still playng u...

Re: Disc golf analytics

Hi Del I totally agree - i was well aware that some of my timings started only for there to be an interruption elsewhere. my conclusion is that it is very difficult to be exact. I would only ever call an infringement of this rule after repeated, obvious violations. I would afford people with obstruc...

Re: 2013 rules revision

With the 'excessive time' thing, I think if you enforced it too fiercely people would just take longer walking to their disc. I have heard occasional grumbling but I wouldn't say there's an endemic problem in the BDGA tour of rounds taking too long and not finishing in good time, so why cause the a...

Re: European Championships 2012

I did a quick fix on the Gold/Brown rounds - quick and dirty and it creates more rows per player, but you can at least see the real values. http://community.tableausoftware.com/message/185254#185254 (Jester - I'm afraid it's even worse for your brown round. but at least everyone's brown round is wor...
