My BW rating is waaay better than my PDGA rating so please use it :D

If you do go by ratings I think my was 952 at the last update. I haven't renewed so I can't check. If it's tryouts I'm in. I've got the weekend off for the tourney so I'm hoping to play. Also, if you do tryouts I've got Thurdays and Fridays off if anyone needs a witness for their tryout rounds.
I'm sorry that the middle of my sentence interrupted the beginning of yours.

I guess I don't understand why people hate tryouts or are against the idea so much. I would think a month+ is plenty of time to get out at least once to try out, if tryouts are allowed this year or whatever. Seems to have worked well in the past, just get out for a couple hours on a day with 2 other witnesses and play, no need to set aside a specific day or weekend. After the top 3-4 guys, the talent is so close and deep in DSM that over a dozen people could fill in the last few spots on the #1 team and it wouldn't affect the outcome (1st place obv) at all. Or people could submit resumes to the captain or whoever decides the players as well.

Im not against tryouts, its fair....It can be tough for some people who work odd hours, are getting married, having kids, ect... TBH, there are about 8 guys that came to mind who have always/ are playing great. In no particular order: Duden, Ern, Claring, Whitson, Clue, Fausch, Tanner, and our newest transplant/current Ice Bowl Champ Albert. And I have a feeling atleast two of those guys would be pulling out or wouldnt be available. That is not the final lineup my no means...Just names that came to mind. People like Lindsley and Scooter, have been on the championship teams the past 2 years and have proven they can bring in the points. Then there is Mikal, Weaver, T squared, Foust, Rusty, Joe, Beery, Jamie, Steve...ect (Sorry if I left anybody out) that can put up a hot round at anytime. Minus 2 guys (ern and duden) its looking like the BW's have just about everything we need..Unless im missing someone :? Please let me know if you would be interested and Ill start a list

And its come to my attention that we wont have as near as much time to put two teams together as we thought. Its filling up fast, max 9 teams, and there are already 3-4 teams in, a few that werent even being counted when the original max 9 teams were posted. Only way this will work is to hand pick, unless everyone gets out today and throws....just sayin

Accepted a job at EMC today. So you'll be seeing me around the beginning of April (Start date is April 2nd). Now I just have to work out the logistics of moving two cats halfway across the country...(sorry for the thread drift)

Only those on the outside want to have tryouts. We all know who the best players are and taking anyone that tried out great is still likely to lay an egg at the tourney. Take the better player and roll with it.

The sooner you decide this the sooner the rest of the state teams can go running away with their tails tucked. Then we can put together 4 des moines teams and we can all get participation ribbons.

nice thought Dave, what you're overlooking is that the format lends itself to anybody to win. I already have 4 teams locked in - not including Cedar Rapids who I'm sure will bring at least 2, QC bringing at least 2, Ames is already working on one - which leaves room for no other teams. Who gets in will depend on who gets me a roster. I will be turning the 10th team away.

I am taking the captain duty for DM3. Anyone is welcome to try out. Try outs will be held at the crack tomorrow night and will consist of flipping discs to figure out who's who...


Oh, and thanks for the respect ^^^ :D
