|Ice League 2015-2016- INFORMATION
This section describes the ins and outs of Ottawa's Ice League and serves as a resource for volunteer TDs who have or will run an Ice League event in Ottawa.
Who: Anyone can play.
You don’t have to be a member of the ODGC but members get discounts.
When: Every Saturday leading up to the 2016 Ottawa Ice Bowl.
Time: Varies, depending on the course
Where: Different courses and different layouts. Some old, some new.
Format: Best-disc doubles, Doubles teams will be pre-selected at random between two sets of players; "pro” and "ams". If you win with one partner, say goodbye to their services for the year, as winnings partners are not paired again.
The goal of Ice League is to have fun in the cold, stay in form for next season, and to add to the value of our donation to the Ice Bowl's charity, the Ottawa Food Bank.
$5 entry + 1 Mulligan
$10 entry + 4 Mulligans
$15 entry + 6 Mulligans*
$6 entry + 1 Mulligan
$10 entry + 2 Mulligans
$17 entry + 6 Mulligans*
*: Max of 6 used per league event.
Definition: A mulligan is a stroke that is replayed from the spot of the previous stroke without penalty, due to an errant shot made on the previous stroke.
- A mulligan used negates your previous shot from being used.
- When using a mulligan it must be verbally declared to the rest of the group.
- Mulligans can be given or "pooled" between partners.
- Only a maximum of 6 mulligans can be purchased thus a maximum of 12 per team. (So in theory one partner can hold 12 mulligans but where's the fun in that?)
- Once your lie has been picked up or you and your partner both walk off the teepad you cannot use a mulligan.
-NEW: Mulligans are now tracked on the scorecard by team.
Cali (California Doubles)
In the event that there is an odd number of players in attendance for an IL event a volunteer is required from the Pro pool to play cali.
Cali doubles format: The player playing cali may take an extra shot on every 2nd shot until the hole is finished. The player may not start their next hole with two shots if they have finished the previous hole with two shots (or putts rather).
ex. Player A takes 2 drives, 1 approach and takes 2 tries to putt out on hole 1. On hole 2 Player A can take only 1 drive, uses 2 approach shots and has one putt. (alternatively Player A may elect to use 1 approach shot on hole 2 to have 2 putts to finish)
Newish rule: A player playing cali receives extra mulligans* on top of the maximum cap of 6 to use during his/her round. (This is to offset playing against a team with potentially 12 mulligans)
*Extra mulligans are determined by entry fee and are as follows:
$5 entry = +1 more mulligan, 2 Total. $10 entry +2 more mulligans, 6 Total. $15 entry + 3 more mulligans, 9 Total.
*NEW*Black Ace For Charity:
TDs are encouraged to set up an extra portable basket (pref black) on one of the holes somewhere on the course that includes a ring or circle around the basket. For $2 you get to toss at the black ace basket when you throw from the tee of the assigned hole. Note this throw does not replace your drive it is in addition to your normal drive on the hole. If you get it in the basket you win half the pot. If you FAIL to get it in the ring you OWE $2 to the pot. You MAY use mulligans to throw again but every mulligan you use cuts your share of the pot by half.
|IL TD resources:
Ice League TDs are required to post the results of the event ran and should include the $ breakdown whenever possible. ex:
X Players came out to play Ice League @ Y course
Here are the results after Z round of ## holes:
Player 1 & Player 2 - 54 (winning $$ ea.)
Player 3 & Player 4 - 55
Player 5 & Player 6 - 56
Player 7 & Player 8 - 57
$ IN: $$$/3 = $
XX$ OFB donation
XX$ operating costs*
*where there are no operating costs the leftover $ is pooled into the OFB donation.
Payouts are calculated as being 1/3 of the cash received at registration.
If the number is not divisible by 3 round up the portion being donated to the food bank until a round number for payout is established.
Payouts are also given to the 2nd place team whenever attendance is greater than 12 players.
I have emailed all potential IL TDs with a blank scorecard template and reg. sheets. If you have not received them or need them let me know and I can forward them to you. I have been using a blank sheet of lined paper for registration to take down the following: Name, $ payed, # mulligans.
Any questions regarding Ice League or Ice Bowl? Post here or PM myself of Ben.
