ODGC Tuesday regulars, take note:
Current members of the ODGC that have participated in at least six (6) regular TOSS 2013 events have something else to look forward to.

What is it?
Every year, we recognize the accomplishments of Tuesday regulars in three categories:

The Most Improved award is presented to the player who's handicap shows the fastest downward trend over the course of the season.
The Performance Player award is presented to whoever, amoung Tuesday regulars, records the lowest adjusted scores for both rounds at League Night Finals
The Season Champion award this year will be presented to the player with the lowest average round differential based on their six best round differentials over the course of the entire season.

I don't need six Tuesday night appearances to play in League Night finals, right?
That is correct. League Night Finals 2013 will not require that you have made an appearance to any Tuesday night event over the course of the season. League Night Finals details will be made available in the coming weeks on this forum. As with League Night Finals events every season, you don’t want to miss this event under any circumstances.

What is League Night Finals?
League Night Finals is a special event open only to ODGC members. Ask anyone that has played in this tournament what it is all about, and you'll get one answer: Don't miss it!

Why do I need to play in six TOSS events to be eligible for this "season extra"?
If you made it out to six events, you helped to make Tuesday nights a "League" this season. It also provides us with a sample of scores that is large enough to meaningfully characterize your game over the course of the season. Six events is just one appearance for every three weeks of the season.

I have a player handicap, so why am I not eligible for an adjusted-score format unless I’ve played six rounds?
This end of season bonus is a thank you for those players that participated regularly in TOSS events over the fair-weather season. We appreciate your participation on Tuesdays and at other ODGC events, but to be eligible for this award, you had to make it to just one in three Tuesday night events. Players that did so made this a league. It can be difficult to make room in one’s schedule for this sort of thing, but those that did deserve this special recognition. We hope that you can make it out more often next season, and we look forward to an even broader field of Tuesday (and Thursday) night regulars. We also look forward to seeing you at League Night Finals, since this really is one of the most rewarding disc golf experiences of the season, all bonuses aside. Even though you may not be eligible for the TOSS bonus, you will enjoy the course, and the tournament in general.

So how will these LNF adjusted rounds work?
LNF is a two-round event and it will feature some excellent disc golf. Players eligible for the TOSS extra will play the LNF course normally, but each of their rounds will be adjusted by their current player handicap. When the tournament is over, your adjusted score for each round is then added together, and the player with the lowest cumulative adjusted score after both rounds will be declared the winner.

What if there is a tie for first place?
If there is a tie for low adjusted score after both rounds, the final round adjusted score will be used as the tie-breaker, with the player scoring the lowest second-round adjusted score being declared the winner. Barring that, the player having made more TOSS 2013 appearances will be declared the winner. In the exceedingly unlikely event that two players remain tied after this, a coin toss will be used to determine the winner.

What about those other awards?
You score a "differential" each round that you play. There is a record of that. There are two desireable "trends" that we track:
The Most Improved award goes to the person who, over the season, showed the greatest improvement in the their differentials (or, for the math inclined, the player with the lowest slope in the line defining their linear best fit as determined by least squares method).
The Season Champion award goes to the person who has the lowest average round differential based on their six best round differentials over the course of the entire season.

Questions about any of this? PM me and I'll include appropriate clarification in this thread as a FAQ.
