Skills Competition (Updated with Course Info)
The game is minigolf, at Goodrich Golf Dome. Two teams, selected by the 2010 skills champion (Justin) and runner-up (Nathan). The team scores will be added, and the winning team gets seats 1-5, losing team seats 6-10 (within those groups, ordered by individual score). If the individual on the losing team has the lowest individual score, he still gets seat 1, with the winning team scooted down a seat. The game takes place Saturday before the draft, at our leisure.
That's what we've discussed so far: here is the post for a skills competition discussion thread. Flame on!
Update: The Course
A few notes on Goodrich's Minigolf Course, and some matters we'll need to agree on for the contest itself.
--the course itself is very casual, and very isolated: probably precisely what we want. There aren't too many gimmicks. It's $5.25 per person.
--each hole has two cups (white and red). We should decide which color cup we're playing ahead of time, though there'd be no harm in letting each golfer choose either cup on each hole.
--There's no precise tee box: we'll probably just start from behind the rock marker.
Some things we'll need to set:
--some sort of out of bounds rule: several holes have very open gaps to get O.B.
--how to split up groups (each team going, or mix teams, or go in three groups, or go in five pairs?).
--how to deal with balls hitting balls (I think marking balls when necessary, replacing a ball that gets hit, is fine).
