Festivus Registrations

Greg Johnson
 

Hi all,
 
The tournament is Saturday January 26th.  I getting to work on trophies tonight!
 
Festivus Registrations will open at midnight tonight.  NWDiscgolf merged with Firefly for tournament registrations. Here is the online registrations page:
 
http://www.4discgolf.com/13festivus

I would attach the offline registration form but I don't have it with me and wanted to get this message out before registrations go live.
 
I will take Registrations from club members at the next 2 club meetings.  If you wait past early January to get me your paid registrations you might find yourself on the wail list rather than on the registration list.
 
Cheers,
 
Greg Johnson


Ribbon Cutting at Newport DG Course

Jay Sexton
 

WDGC folks,
 
The Wilder Disc Golf Course at the Oregon Coast Community College has been completed by The Ford Institute Leadership Program (FILP) group in Newport.
 
On Wednesday, December 5th at 4 PM they will have a ribbon cutting.
 
Three of the 18 holes were sponsored by either the WDGC, or it's individual members.
 
Because of the light there will not be time after the ribbon cutting to play an entire round, so if you would like to play - go early and play and then congratulate them at their ceremony.
 
Attached is a map: The tees are red with hole number and the pins are yellow with pin numbers. Last time I was there they were clearing the paths - it's woodsy, and nice.
Control is the key - and watch your disc till it stops.
 
At 3 PM in a meeting room at the OCCC the leadership group will have a graduation. Toni and I went through this program in Philomath almost ten years ago. It is an interesting personal growth and networking process that the Ford Family Foundation (Timber Philanthropists out of Roseburg) have given to many, many small communities in Oregon and some edges of other states.
 
I attached the invitation to the ribbon cutting.
 
I also attached a map of the Oregon communities which have had at least one of these leadership trainings - It is Amazing!
 
Enjoy a new coastal attraction!!!
 
Jay


President's Cup almost ready

 

Thanks to Dave Pittman for assistance, we got all the temp tee-pads
(that we have) in place at Adair, and got ALL 18 tee-signs in place,
so it's reasonably easy to play the President's Cup layout at this
point.

I moved the tee for #8 up the hill about 20 feet, so you can now SEE
the #12 fairway and #12's basket, so it's no longer a blind shot and
it's a little safer to play. I also moved regular basket #10 to the
long left position, so that the temp tee-pad wouldn't interfere with
the basket (it's right next to the right-position).

Less than 11 days to the tournament!

Oh, and also, I've got the tee-sign for regular hole #4. It was lose.
I'm going to clean it up, then take it back out with some longer screws
and re-attach it, but that might take a few days.

Also, I'll need to get the folding scoreboard, clipboards, and

Hello from Georgia

Josh Powell <powelloregon@...>
 

Missing the WDGC experience since I moved out here in June to Athens, GA.
We have a world-class 23-hole course with 3 different concrete tee-pads w/ 3 different pin positions.
http://www.pdga.com/course_directory/course/sandy-creek-park

While I don't mind the $3 fee to play each time (keeps those blasted college kids away)....they don't allow alcohol or dogs off-leash. I've made it my priority to test my limits each time by allowing my dog to run wild in the woods for most of the round and sneaking god's great miracle drink (Pabst Blue Ribbon) in my Nalgene bottle.

These guys in Georgia could learn a thing or two with the great organizing you guys have!  Enjoy the fact you have two great 18 hole courses for a city the size of Corvallis!

Hope to visit Corvallis in the Spring!
Josh Powell

Subject: [wdgc] President's Cup preparations

As you've probably already been notified, I've uploaded a PDF of the
course map for the President's Cup, along with hole-by-hole directions:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wdgc/files/Tournaments/President%27s%20Cup/PresidentsCup2012Map.pdf

I plan to put up hole signs and maybe some of the temp tee-pads
tomorrow (Tuesday), and maybe cut a little grass on P.C. holes 6 and 7,
and I'll be moving a couple of the baskets back into their needed
positions today.  Several baskets will need to be moved the day-of,
as some baskets are not used in their regular positions, but rather
get doubled up on other holes (Basket #3 moves to #4-short, Basket #10
moves to #5-long), and three temp baskets get added for P.C. holes
#7, 12 and 15.  We won't have enough temp tee pads to cover all of the
holes, so I'll be spreading them out where the likelihood of mud-holes
is the greatest. 

Repeated WARNING: if you play the P.C. layout before the day of the
tournament, WATCH FOR and YIELD TO regular course players.  Several
holes are particularly dangerous, such as P.C. #8 which is a blind
throw across regular hole #13 to #12 basket, P.C. hole #18 which throws
across holes #3 and #2 to #2's basket, and so on.  LOTS of opportunities
for accidents, and we need to be responsible Disc Citizens.

Be careful out there!

Fw: JohnR's Presidential Platform (DRAFT)

----- Forwarded Message -----

From: Heyo Mann
To: John Ross
Sent: Sunday, November 25, 2012 5:47 PM
Subject: JohnR's Presidential Platform (DRAFT)

[Approximately in order and DRAFT because it's a living, breathing, working document]
  • Sustainable Friendly: Doing no harm—nature bats first;
  •  “Safe,” Efficient Meetings—facilitating with Permaculture ideas in mind (see attachment 1. CollaborativeMeetingFacilitation);
  • Proposer in Chief—as the US government, The President proposes Congress disposes. (In our case Membership disposes of ideas, solutions, initiatives, eg. a dictator free zone, Disc Tzar excepted);
  • Open, Democratic Process—Membership is informed and consulted in advance;
  • Reliance on Group Wisdom—(Fact: Diverse groups free of preconceived bias, manipulation and peer pressure make better decisions even than experts);
  • Accountable Leadership Standards—Club officers should be evaluated on well-defined attendance and performance criteria;
  • Member Volunteer and Stewardship Incentives;
  • Strategic Planning and Operation—Beginning with a carefully facilitated visioning process, decisions are based on clearly-defined goals, strategies and desirable, measurable outcomes;
  • Sound Fiscal Management—Budgeting and priorities-based spending. (Based on a structured, guided visioning process);
  • Sustained, Collaborative, Open, Functional Governmental Relationships;
  • Defined, Semiannually-Reviewed Course Maintenance Standards;
  • Dispersed, Decentralized Power—decisions are made as a group with rare exceptions for emergencies;
  • Persistent Active Membership Program with Targets and Timelines;
  • Wide Community Outreach & Collaboration—engaging natural allies such as local businesses, service clubs, tourism boards, governmental entities, etc.;
  • Conflict Aversion & Resolution;
  • Fair, Conflict-of-Interest-Free Meeting Facilitation;
  • Bias for Facts, Information and Verifiable Truths;
  • National Politics Free Zone;
  • Less Verbosity—Windbag Free Zone;
  • Improvisational, Creative Management Approach (see Stanford “Idea Doctor” Roger von Oech’s books and attachment 2. Improv Wisdom);
  • Elder Wisdom (see attachment 3. Too Soon Old);
  • Time Commitment—(In my case 20-30 hours per week);
  • Fun & Funnier—Maintaining perspective and keeping a sense of humor.

Cheers and please vote early and often.

JohnR

PS: It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry.
PPS: If you get a better offer, for gods sakes take it! I can always fry other, hopefully bigger fish.

Umm... I'm not sure I feel entirely comfortable talking about any
'hard-up' that Kelly might have...

but he would probably have to set it up the night before.
I have a cheap one with "tent poles" that you have to put together,
and it's kind of a pain-in-the-arse and would definitely have to be
put up the day before, which is why I was hoping for the "scissor"
style pop-up frame that goes together pretty quick.

On another subject: WATERPROOF PAPER for scorecards... can anyone tell
me where to acquire it for printing up some scorecards?

Cool! Those are the clipboards that Greg usually has? Or are these

just bring the basket and clipboards the morning-of. Otherwise, I'll
