The Pelican
ODGC vs. ADGM
Ettyville Super Spin Disc Golf Course
August 21, 2010


For those of you who are connected to the Montreal DG Association (ADGM), you probably received this email this morning:

Hello,

The ADGM is proud to announce the creation of a new event called the Pelican Cup.

The trophy will be awarded to the winners of a club challenge between the ODGC and the ADGM . This event is designed to push you to perform at your competitive best.

The concept is simple, to create a team of 8 players within the ADGM's membership, through a series of qualifying events in order to face-off against the ODGC's best 8 players.

2010 will be the beginning of a tradition that will place emphasis on intense yet friendly competition between the two largest disc golf clubs in Ontario and Quebec.

All the details here : http://www.adgm.ca/en/coupe-pelican-adgm-odgc-2010.html


It's true. The ODGC and the ADGM will be meeting at Ettyville Disc Golf Course, on August 21st, 2010 to battle for the Pelican.

John Pytel (owner and General Manager of Ettyville Super Spin Disc Golf Course) approached both clubs last year to dicuss having the two clubs meet in Ettyville (middle ground), and compete in a Ryder Cup type event. After many emails, and several months we (John, Pat "zoom" Huot, Paul Bourgeois, and myself) worked out the details, rules, format and dates and it's looking pretty cool.

Below you'll find the Rules and Regulations for the Pelican Tournament as they were written at this date. The semantics and some of the logistics of the rules are still being dicussed between the groups, but they shouldn't change to much, and if they do, the changes will be posted here.

participants in matches that ended "all square" in the final round will prepare to resume their
match in a sudden death format, beginning on the hole determined by the tournament
director. These shall be called tie breaker matches and shall be played as a continuation of
the fourth round match.
(b) If no matches ended in a draw, the captains shall identify one player from their team to
complete a sudden death tie breaker match played under the rules for the fourth round, and
that determination shall be made to the tournament director and without knowledge of who
the other team is selecting. The team winning this match wins the tie breaker.
(c) Only an odd number of matches shall be used to play the tie breaker. Following completion
of the fourth round, if there are an even number of matches available to be contested as tie

respective parties who shall review the amendment and indicate their support or objection to
the amendment within fourteen (14) calendar days of receipt of the application.

parties", and all rights to the name, logos, slogans, and other intellectual property associated
with the event are shared exclusively by the ODGC and the ADGM. No other rights to
intellectual property owned by the ADGM or the ODGC are implied.
(b) The ODGC and the ADGM hereby agree that no license to said intellectual property shall be
granted to a third party without the permission of both the ODGC and the ADGM except
where that license is granted for the purpose of producing goods associated with the running
of the event. Said goods must be made in good taste, and are not meant to imply either
implicitly or explicitly any reference whatsoever to the other party. Said goods are limited to
clothing and equipment articles to be used by captains, players, substitute players,
tournament directors, and volunteers during the event, and they shall not be produced for

Neat, eh.

4. Team Captains
(a) Selection of team captains shall be the responsibility of the respective organization.
(b) The team captains shall represent their respective team, and shall be responsible for
determining pairings and matches for each round of the event.


Last summer the ODGC Executive passed a motion that would see/ask the ODGC President Cup winner represent the ODGC team as the captain. Maybe one of the Exec could post the motion here to see why this was the method we chose, but in a nutshell it was discussed that to win the PC you had to compete with many of the competitive ODGC members; and would become witness to players development and skill level; would see ODGC members in various tournament formats; and therefore have the appropriate knowledge to build a competitive team. The President Cup winner could always decline the nomination, and the second place player would be asked.

I accepted the position.

I'm pretty sure a motion was also drafted that would guide the ODGC captain in developing a team (I don't have access the Exec Forum anymore), but I think that the Presidents Cup results, and other accomplishments (TOSS finishes, OMPL stats, skill development, commitment to the game) coming into August would be a large determinate, as well as having the August 21st weekend free. I am looking forward to picking the best that the ODGC has (that don't have other life duties on that weekend) and showing the Montreal crew they still have some big steps to climb. big grin

The costs of the tournament (supplies, trophy, green fees, lunch) are still under discussion, but each team must come in uniform, so the purchasing of a team jersey will also be a necessity to those on the team. There will be a dress code for the ODGC team as well.

Dropping me a PM or talking to me on the course that you are interested in playing will help in building the team. I will send out invitations in the last week of July to give players a chance to prepare for the event, and perhaps even find some dates to train together.

To join in the discussion please check out the Clubhouse.
