The Graphs are Back! Posted by zewtastic on Saturday, April 13, 2013 (18:15:19) (22 reads)
Finally got the correct font files in place for the popular graphs. I also found a few small bugs that I fixed.

WWW added. Posted by zewtastic on Tuesday, April 09, 2013 (23:51:08) (25 reads)
HACKPACK.COM is the domain
WWW is simply an extraneous, unneeded alias.
Do not add WWW in front of web domains.
Even though adding "www" to the front end of a domain is a carry-over from ancient history of the internet, many of you old people still do it.
So to curtail all the questions about why the site is down, I have added WWW as an alias for hackpack.com.
But it is unneeded, was never needed, and just adds more overhead. Creating a 2nd path to get to the same place is redundant and annoying. Catch up people.

Senior Discount at HO Posted by zewtastic on Tuesday, April 09, 2013 (22:57:09) (26 reads)
Apparently if you are a "senior" you can buy a senior discount card at HO pro shop for $20? Which will pay for itself if you are careful to use it, and not forget.
But if you are going to get one, please do it early and not at 5pm when people are trying to actually get registered to play.
And I saw some non-seniors purchasing cards, so not sure how critically they are checking your age.

Week 1 Updates Posted by zewtastic on Tuesday, April 09, 2013 (19:57:17) (54 reads)
Week one is in the books. Good turn-out folks.
FIRST PAR SCORE
Grats to Chris Gohl who has the first par round this season! 36 on the Mac. Welcome to that zero handicap Chris.
THE UNETHICAL GOLFER?
Ken Wohl wanted me to make sure and tell everyone he had the first birdy of Hackpack, 1st hole on the MacKenzie.
But of course we need to tell the rest of the story now.
I had been bugging Ken to bet me over who would have a lower score on week 1. He kept whining about things like having a good score after a long layoff (been a year since I last played), and other wimpy things. There was no persuading him, even given that he had been playing weekly and bragging about his scores.
So what does he decide to do after he amazingly birdies the first hole? He texts me to say he wants to bet now. HAHAHA
TRICKS FOR SCORING WEEK 1
Typically week one, players are both establishing and usually split the 4 points available.
The exception is where your opponent is a noshow. Then all you have to do is shoot 52 and lower, as handicaps are capped at 18. This will give you all 4 points.
Also you can take 4 points if you opponent shoots over 52, but that is not always guaranteed.
To get 3 points is possible if you shoot a high score (under 53) but also have some pars, and your opponents score is consistent. Then your high handicap will win you match play and usually half of stroke play.
Still chasing down a few small bugs, mostly ascetic such as the correct fonts for displaying graphs.
There was one bug that affected hdcp calculation for subs with scores from 2012, but it has been fixed. Sorry Cofer, only 3 points now.

Hackpack 2013 is HERE!
I hope to be updating the site in the next couple weeks.
I also hope to have some new features for the new year. I have been working on a mobile score submit form. So you can add those scores from your smart phone and tablet devices. Even while you are playing.
Tee colors changed on Arcade Creek course Posted by zewtastic on Sunday, April 08, 2012 (17:23:19) (651 reads)
The tee colors on the Arcade Creek golf course have been changed as shown below. The color changes have been duplicated to the Hackpack.com database, and should be reflected on our scorecards, (unless Tom printed them before the db changes).
No reason for the changes has been given, but it does align more with the tee colors on the McKenzie side.
New Arcade Creek tee colors: Blue is now Black
White is now Yellow
Red is now Brown
