What you can do instead of just raising the cap is start splitting the new money after the cap is reached. Then the new pot is still being established but the original pot keeps getting bigger as well.

Our league is just starting up again this year and we haven't had an ace since early in the summer 2011. Our course's shortest holes are 260' and 360' and those holes are not good ace lines.

We run three different leagues and all have separate Ace pots. We cap ours at $200 but it usually gets hit well ahead of time. I think $175 is the largest it has made it in the past few years. As far as doubles splits it is between player and partner - I usually make a split offer with my partner on pools over $25 if they are in the ace pool.

Well yet again no one got an ace tonight. I didn't ask but it's probably pretty damn close to $800. The secondary pot is up to $320. I heard that much

I am still after many years playing, getting to terms with some aspects of disc golf social culture. Especially in regards to the cash money side. I'd never been around so much small time gambling before.

One observation intrigues me in that players see "their money" in an ace pool, even after a long period of time. I've always felt that once you released your dollar into a community pool, you were essentially releasing claim to it. Sure you can hope, and play your heart out today, but once your 18 holes are done, you are back in your car and on your way. I tend to believe that No good tends to come from retaining a protective claim on money released this way.

Like someone mentioned.. It'd be lame for someone to swoop in from out of town, pay the $5 to get in the pot.. hit the ace.. and leave with the $750 that they contributed to 1 time. I agree with it. Don't really see it as fair if someone came in and did that.
