Iowa Games

On the back of the 2006 Iowa Games Souvenir Results Program it states that the 21st Annual Summer Iowa Games will be July 2008. Is this accurate? Are they not having the Summer Iowa Games every year any more?

I checked the website (what an idea!) and it gives the dates for the 2007 Summer Games. Sorry to waste your time. Looking forward to it.

Iowa Games & Sandbaggers

Postby disxgolf_nut » Wed Dec 27, 2006 1:36 am

This last year was my fist disc golf tournament and it was a great experince. I played at the intermediate level, but one of the guys in my foursome was a sandbagger. He played in intermediae level on sat. and then in the advanced level on sun. Is there any way to keep that from happening again.

I didn't notice that the scores at Iowa Games were out of normal for their divisions.

it seems like there is a family i will leave unnamed in ames where the kids especially like to sandbag...even though they are good enough to compete at the next level up.

I just don't really see the point in sandbagging at the Iowa Games. Either you get a medal or not. It's not like you are playing for big money or something like that. I see it as just a fun tournament, a chance to play the Ames courses and a free t-shirt.

Or the other way to look at that might be:

*Alleged Sandbagger* is just trying to play a couple of fun tournaments at a reasonable price. It just so happens that he crushes you. Why would you care? You're just there to have fun, right?

That's the way I look at it anyway. The past two years I have played in the Intermediate division and both years the winner has been 9 strokes better than me. When that 9 strokes is over 20 holes that's quite a margin but I don't care because like you said I'm just there to have fun.

I guess the question then is why call somebody a sandbagger?

In none of my posts did I call anyone a sandbagger. What I said was I don't see the point of sandbagging to get yourself an Iowa Games medal which will just end up in your basement or a closet somewhere.

It will remain primarily at Carroll Marty. CM has facilities to conduct on-site registration and check-in while ISU doesn't even have a shelter.
