This is just a quick enquiry to see if there is enough interest to start another Matchplay Series this fall.

It will use the same format as initiated by Ken Darcovich, but will be expanded to 24 or 32 players, IF THERE IS ENOUGH INTEREST.

It could start up during the first week of September, and would be a great leadup to the Ottawa Open which will be held at the end of the month.

Please sign up here in the forum and spread the word.

In addition to Andrew and myself, I've now had positive responses from the following disc golfers:

Peter McKinnon, Steve Ott, Rod Nicholls

Although this second Match Play Series is scheduled to start in early September, it need not be completed by the Plaid Jacket. The matches will be held roughly once per week, at the time of choosing of the involved players.

However, in order to kick start the Series, I hope that a majority of the players will be able to come out to the initial launch date, which will be determined in consultation with the players after some more people sign up.

$25 entry, with $20 from each entry going into the payout structure, and $5 going into an ace pool, which goes to the person landing the first ace in Match Play, otherwise, the Ace Pool money goes to the ODGC.

I'm designing a 24 and a 32 player format, but I'll go with the identical format of 16 if we do not get at least 24 confirmed players.

You can also add one more player to the list of Series 2 Competitors - Steve Seabrook.

I would like to see the payoff for the top half of the matchplay series be greater than the last matchplay. It ups the anti.

BTW, loved the last match play, it really improved the quality of play and I enjoyed every single round I played....
Thanks to Ken D for organizing. Good times.

There will probably be more money at the top end of the scale, so winning that all-important first matchup will be all the more significant.

There are now 20 players signed up - only 4 more open spots!

Confirmed entries:

Nicholas Aghajanian – Kevin Grignon – Don Lane – Ken Lange – Luc Langelier – Andrew Leach – Dean Manning – Derek Manning – Mike McCormick – Joel McEwen – Peter McKinnon – Jeff Meldrum – Andy Morrisey – Rod Nicholls – Steve Ott – Steve Seabrook – Mike Seaby – Gavin Thompson – Carl Visser – Rob Wormald

...make that two entries left. John Kean and Greg Herage just signed up.

If I get a whole slew of entries overnight, we can make it a 32 person event. Otherwise, entries will be cutoff at Wednesday by noon and we will go with what we have.

I've now received one more entry, that of Jamie Russell, who will be either on the bubble or the first of 8 to complete the field of 32, which is the ideal number of participants.

You have until Wednesday at noon, at which time the entries will close.

Please post some suggested starting times and dates in this Forum. Thanks guys!

Since I'll be out of the office this afternoon looking for gym space for this October and December (anyone know of a good basketball court sized facility in central Ottawa which would be available from 9-5 from a Wed-Sun?) and unable to reply, I can extend the deadline until tomorrow morning at 9 am, when I'll announce the format and possible starting times.

We now have 27 signed up, with the last three people: Jamie Russell, Tom O'Brien, and Wah Phung-Lu being on the bubble unless we get more 5 more participants before tomorrow morning.

Later!
