Lots of new folks in for this season! That's great to see!

New players,

On the deadbeat issue... don't let that deter you from joining. There have been very very few of them per capita to the amount of people playing and having fun. And those few were not allowed to play again.

So GAME ON!!!


____

On the feedback issue, if it's okay with timg I think we should leave positive or negative feedback.
____

One the $30 issue.

Suggestion #1: Bailey, you could pay, then during payouts assign yourself an automatic amount of discs sent to you as compensation. (this would probably only work if the bet was two discs per person instead of one)

Suggestion #2: Bailey, you could pay, then charge $1 for people to join. Assign discs as above to fill the gap up to the $30.

Suggestion #3: Charge $2 to join via paypal. After the 3rd or 4th tournament, divide $30 by the number of players and refund each accordingly. After that you could prob let people join for free and either have to send a disc to the winners or not, you decide as it happens.

These are just off the top of my head. There are probably a hundred better ways to do it. I have zero experience with this. How do you "other sports" fantasy players do it?

one thing to note, $30 gives you 20 tournaments. If you do two tours this year then that is 10 tournaments per tour, $15 per tour. Some people that play the first tour may not play the second. Some people that did not play the first tour may want to play in the second.

So thinking in those terms, bailey, you could compensate yourself the $30 spread out over two tours by either charging a small fee or by collecting disc payouts accordingly.

For those that are new, Brall was the organizer of Leagues last year, so he would know exactly how many people didn't pay, and it looks like it wasn't a huge problem. Like he said, this is still a fun way to kill some of that idle time staring at your screen thinking that you've finished the internet. I also found it really helpful with learning the who's who of disc golf and got exposed to a ton of new events/courses I never heard of.

Problems Solved

Hey DGCR,

Aaron from Fantasy Disc Golf here. We'll upgrade your league to premium for you and no one needs to worry about the $30. We'll also throw in a First Place trophy disc!

Thank you for your patience. We hope to have everything rolling by Sunday/Monday and expect a lot of signups prior to the Memorial.

Get your buddies together and let the trash talk carry to the computer. Here are a few 2013 highlights:
  • 1 FDG putter with premium league purchase
  • 1 FDG trophy disc with premium league purchase
  • 8+ customized DGA mini baskets given away in FREE Gold League
  • Sortable Player Stats Pages coming soon
  • better email options to avoid goose eggs
  • more prizes!

When next week comes, please consider creating a custom league as you'll get 2 custom Gateway FDG putters with your purchase and the ability to use any sanctioned event in your fantasy league.

Thanks again DGCR. We'll be notifying y'all shortly.

Aaron
