I had really negative feelings about the name of the new disc, but Steve's video has convince me not to hate on it. I might even buy one. His lo-fi video blog is the best.

When Axiom has a bigger line up or if Innova releases more overmolds, you could code for stability by rim colour and speed by flight plate colour (or vice-versa).

The DGCR SSE for courses is a decent proxy for a PDGA SSA (for these purposes). It doesn't matter too much if it is a couple strokes off. In your case, since you are capping handicaps at -6, you...

Verbose thoughts on Handicap

Any handicapping system, as long as it is applied consistently, can work fine for a weekly league I think. Most often, the handicap systems leagues use are chosen to be easy to explain to players...

Of course I built my project before I knew about the handicapping at DGU. The $0.25 per score doesn't really seem like a large overhead for running a league, but I suspect there are lot of people...

I am a little surprised by the number of people wishing for a more overstable fairway. The Ascent seems plenty beefy to me. That said, a set of speed 9-10 drivers including something PDish...

A very well organized tourney with 100 players playing an 18 hole SSA 60ish course can feel pretty smooth. A poorly organized tourney with 50 players can be much worse.

To add, this is why I don't like using a 0.6 multiplier for example (or an accelerating multiplier like hedfan1). Because it basically assumes that the player with higher averages are also less...

The Marshall Street Pyramids score cards are pretty nice. Two sided, so lots of room for sponsors, and cleverly folding so you can see the names with the score for both the front and the back.

From the title I thought this was going to be a link to an indygogo.com or gofundme.com page. ;)
