The 100% Attendance Award

Curtis W was the only PDGC member to attend all 18 weekds of the summer 2011 league – way to be dedicated!!

Carbon Kings

The PDGC cares about the environment, so this past season we introduced Carbon Points to league standings. Players received in addition to points based on their scores that week, Carbon Points, depending on their mode of transport to the park that evening. If you rode a bike, walked or were part of a carpool that had three or more persons an extra 2 points was awarded. Two in a car garnered an additional point, while driving alone meant zero bonus points. For it’s first year of experimentation the consensus was we made a difference, no matter how small. With 20 players out on an average week there were seldom more than 7 cars. Next year we’ll be better.

Carbon point Champ Spatch will be recognized soon for his ability to thumb a ride on a regular basis!

Here’s the top group:

  1. Spatch – 32 points (in 17 weeks)
  2. Curtis –  31 points (18 wks)
  3. Kyle – 30 points (17wks)
    Scuba (17wks)
    ottO (15 wks)
  4. Sion – 29 points

Big night on the course at Riverview.  On his first throw of the night, Darrell drops his disc into Hole 9 – worth $100. Gabe wins the Steam Whistle Challenge after it switching back and forth with Aaron.  Sion wins a haircut from Bloodline with a close throw on Hole 3, and Darrell wins the July MVP $20 Night Kitchen prize. Wow, disc golf rules.

Well team, apparently a -7 is only good enough to tie for second!  Hot shooting by some of the PDGC members saw a -8 (Kyle – PB) and two -7′s (Aaron and Gabe) – all while having a fun time.  A large crowd of 19 made for lots of tag switches in the groups, and a few only a few discs testing the waters of the Otonabee River.  Don’t forget to register for the Otonabee Open on August 20th!

Words out – Tuesday night is PDGC League night! 22 golfers were out tonight to chuck plastic in the gusty wind.  Some didn’t mind and shot well below par scores, and only a few discs went for a swim.  Looks like the Karl Forbes Award has a few contenders this year. Keep playing those practice rounds for the Otonabee Open.

Best turnout to date in 2011!  20 golfers were out in the great weather and light winds for some great disc golf action.  The Cedar Forest was in action again, and only a few brave souls took a swim in the river.  A tag shuffle for those who wanted it left some higher and some lower.  Marcus E joined the PDGC for the first time this season and shot a PB, and won the Steam Whistle Challenge – awesome.  Great job Peterborough on the high Carbon Points tonight as well!

The weather was hot and so was the golf! 17 people were out in the heat with everyone recording 2 carbon points! Disc Golfers trying to keep it cool, way to go.  Ryan G won the Steam Whistle Challenge, just taking it from Kyle R on hole 7/16.  Doug and Dylan were randomly selected by the randomizer, with Doug throwing a closest to the pin from the “clubhouse” to pin #3 – he chose a $10 Planet Bakery gift card as his prize.

Another great turnout and the race is heating up early for the competitive league players. Scuba threw an Ace on Hole 2 to take the $100 Ace Pot while Ryan took home two prizes by snuggling up to the traveler basket on Hole 4 and winning the new Random Electronically Selected Door Prize. Carbon Points are already becoming a factor in the early standings so remember folks to try and organize a car pool and reduce your environmental impact and win extra points.

First round of the “sweet sixteen” came with a windy night.  It looked like Mother Nature was pairing up with the Bogey Man, but there were still some well below par rounds shot.  Shorter days required shorter rounds, so no extra Cedar Forest – 18 holes = 54 par.

September 6th, 2011

The largest Tuesday night turnout yet – 27 folks down at Riverview Disc Golf Club for the start of the PDGC playoffs.  All got to see Karl Forbes receive $100 for an ace on hole 6, his first throw of the night!

Only the top 16 (or 17) PDGC members move forward to the next stage – a two round tally.  The format tonight included new baskets on Holes 1, 2, 4, 9, and the Forest Hole.  Amazing scores on the 20 holes were seen, with many personal best scores recorded. The list below shows the scores and ranks – remember – 20 holes = par 60. (* still in playoffs)
