King of the Courses- 2010 - Schedule v1

Tournaments in the rest of the non Iowa world

I say run both. Wednesday being one round I don't think the course will get that damage. Look at Eastern, I have played there twice this week and it looks just fine and it has double if not triple the traffic.

I stand behind whatever Chase decides either way, but it is spring and IA/IL so going to happen. Should we not have leagues, C1/C2 sees way more traffic than either course during leagues so I don't see why we wouldn't want KOC and dubs in the same week. Gives me a chance to play it Wed and then smash it on Sat.

IMO i would think that all the locals that play middle will be going out there that week anyways to practice up for the weekend dubs. so im not sure you will be reducing that much traffic cuase if its nice on wed. people will still be throwing.

I love your concern for the course thou

I was saying that you should run both events. Dont see it being a problem. The course isnt that bad, except in the places you would expect it to be.

Anyway, looking forward to both of these events.

What is the final word on this? Both happening as planned?

I think the impact on the course will be minimal. But that is just my 2 cents.

After yesterday I would agree. It looks like both.

No. I have plastic I need to get to Chase and was wondering if anyone can take it to QC. I will be playing several this year if my schedule allows.

Is this a motion to lead a workday Evan? I did request some assistance getting pins in before the ground froze last November - but I got no takers...

Keep in mind guys that I'm just one person, and it doesn't take much to get burned out on 40acres. I could really use some leadership in the way of spear heading these types of requests/projects.

I do agree that extra pins are key to the long term health of any course (I call them eco-pins), but it's going to take energy and hands.

Remember just because things are not getting done, does not mean that the intent to do them is not there, but we need 'monkey power' to do it - and this monkey is getting tired.

Thanks Evan for getting that tree down on 6, that's exactly the kind of leadership we need! Every time you step over a downed limb or a piece of trash, it's a missed opportunity to take another step forward. It's those little steps that make a course great! Keep on stepp'n!

Just mark or let Brad or Evan know where you want them to be. They will get put in. It would have already been done but nobody wants to step on your toes out there. Its respect.

Meeting tonight by hole 1.


Ill probably get there around 4:30, and can start taking sign ups. The official start time will be 5 PM and if there are people you would like to group with that isnt a problem, depending on size. If you are familar with the course OBs, you can probably just head out a little early, as some will be going later. Its all good, and all for fun!

Im pretty sure there is a sizable ACE pool to start the season off right!
