Re: BDGA TOUR event in NI

Looks absolutely beautiful surroundings, myself and Soph would be interested. Just to give some idea the cheapest we can get at moment flying out late Friday back late Sunday from stansted (Easayjet) is £125 all in both ways for the two of us. However to get these fares we would have to book quickly...

Re: European Championships 2012

Charlie,
Bit confused but think I have it right, if we live at home during Championships it will cost £165 with or without assistance given to the tournament ? If we live on campus we can reduce our accomodation costs by 50% if we give 5 hours a day to a job during tourny. Hope I have it right ! :D

Re: The scoring system debate (again)

Good to see lots of different views over 6 pages in 10 days. However I tend to agree with Village, would the result of the last three years open been changed with a change of system ? As far as adv ams I dont think anybody would have or would have deserved to beat Phil this year, last year was tight...

Re: UK related disc golf stuff.

The festival at Cheltenham Race course appears to be a bit like Cliffhanger. Wondered if it was Steve B or the Shrewsbury lads as it is in their part of the woods. Could be good to get an in and spread the word. :D

Re: The scoring system debate (again)

superb spreadsheet, bruce, does show positions this year would not have changed much whatever scoring system was applied. I personally like the present scoring system, it didn't bring a close finish in the ams this year as phil was a worthy run away winner, however last year good finale at Croydon w...

Re: Nationals 2011 - 22/23 October

Really enjoyed the weekend on a great course, excellent selection of holes which proved tricky. Still love 10 which causes so much fun when pressure is on. So casual about throwing to the island on Sun morning I missed it ! Most of other holes were excellent, a real good variety. Like Tom I don't th...

I am unsure if I will be playing as have hurt back again playing hockey (def getting too old). Will see how I am on Friday after drive down. Som...

Re: Nationals 2011 - 22/23 October

Surely as Rich Wood played open this year he should be rated above the adv ams and the adv am winner ? certainly was when I did the Nationals. i thought rating only came in when we didn't have enough open players ? Would make him 12 and Phil as winner of Ams 13 then ams on ratings ?

Re: BDGA Tour 7 - Croydon Cylone 2011

Thought I had just about got ratings, but looking at the course adjusted ones lost it again. Fully understand open players had the longer tee on 14 ? But I shot same as matt on last round and his round rated 27 points more, which seems strange for a difference of about 30 metres ? presume that it is...

I see Soph has got in first, but would like to add huge thanks to J.B & Alice who not only was brilliant organising things but managed to do her own job at the same time. If it wasn't for the gazebo we would have fried. Both Chris & Dan the two lads who were supplied from Cliffhanger were brilliant,...

Re: British DG Open (BDGO) 2011

Charlie,
I know you have spoken about Euros next year, if you are still doing it have you a rough date, as because it is olympic year I am being restricted leave and must have any leave request in the next couple of weeks to stand any chance of time off. :D
