Title: Homie league
Post by: discglover on November 12, 2006, 08:54:24 AM
Due to extenuating circumstances I have been unable to host homie for a couple weeks. To those who have shown up to play, I apologize for my absence. Next Sunday at Rosedale Down Under I will host the next league. That will be Nov. 19th @ 9am Sunday morning. I hope to have a big enough turnout that it will be a doubles league so this is a call to arms for those willing to share a piece of the pot with someone thay have never played with before. So to those too scared to play because the pros have been there, fear not so we can have a good turnout. I hope to see at least 10 players.
Thanks for anyone interested showing up.

Is this every Sunday at Down Under @ 9AM?  I may be in town the weekend of Sunday, December 17th.  If I am, and I know where this is, I'll be there.....to take some cash back to DSM. ;D :o

no, the time is usually pretty consistent but the place varies.  Hopefully, someone will continue to post the Homie location weekly, since they seem to want more pigeons.  You might also check out the Chip Chuckers, but if you take the prize in either you've  gotta commit to being back the following week.

I once again apologize for not attending the homie league. I hope everyone will certainly understand since I have been having to help care for my ailing father for awhile. On Saturday Nov. 25th, he passed away. He was 78 years old and fought like a trooper. He was found to have Parkinsons Disease about 4 years ago. Last month he fell and broke his hip and that was when we discovered his airway was not closing properly due to the disease. The lack of airway closure brought on pneumonia and from there it was downhill for him. Since my assistance is no longer needed to care for him I will once again be back to donate, I mean play at homie. No matter what the elements, I am calling Rosedale Down Under to be the place it will be played, this Sunday  at 9am. Maybe I can actually get rid of that damn doll. Lets see how many people will show so we can hopefully have enough people to challenge this to be a doubles event.

I am also sorry for your loss.

For those that don't know me, I went to HS in KC at PHHS (before there were two of them).  So, I'm there occasionally, since my parents still live there. 

Anyway, I'll be checking to see where the location will be the weekend of the 17th.

I also noticed that on the home page of KCFDC under the leagues page there is a Saturday league mentioned at Down Under at noon, (I think).  Is that still going on?

Post by: discglover on April 08, 2007, 05:29:32 PM
Anybody care to start back into playing Homey???

Yea, I have the ONE AND ONLY HOMEY!!!
The only reasonable way I see me playing along with a caliber  of Arturo is to have enough for doubles. So C'MON PEOPLE.
LETS START OFF THE SPRING WITH A SPRING FLING FEVER FROM DOWN UNDER AT ROSEDALE DISC GOLF COURSE.

ON SUNDAY APRIL 22 HOMEY WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE AND BE UP FOR GRABS!!

BRING YOUR GEORGE WASHINGTONS..

$5 BEST OVERAL SCORE TOO.

20 HOLES PLAYED



I may otherwise relinquesh Homey to Arturo for the open players to fight for.



If this needs to be reposted, let me know.

Round starts at 9am on Sunday.
Have enough dollar bills for 20 holes.

Distractions after the drives are highly encouraged (especially nudity of women)

Not many posts on here?? I finally rid myself if the dreaded Homer doll and in the process pulled in 8 skins. Bobby shot -8 with no skins   :D. Arturo was vying to take home Homer but Steve Dresser never pulled out of last after his 6. We had 6 bold players risking life and limb in the mud. Buckle hit 4 long puts in a row but he went home empty handed too and finished -5. Mike Lockwood's wallet was never refilled with cash either as he shot -3. I cashed in with timely drives and putts to pull in my eight skins winning 4 of them with a straight sliding shot on 18 leaving me 4' from the pin for the bird.I finished with 2 up. Artoro was not his normal self as he only shot 3up but cashed in with 8 timely skins. Dresser took home 4skins and the dolls. HASTA LA VISTA SENOR HOMER.
I want to thank all the guys that showed up to donate their money. Its always fun no matter where you finish cause you get to play with THE TOP PLAYER IN KANSAS CITY~~~~ARTURO

Steve Dresser has called the next Homie sighting to be next Sunday at 9am at Waterworks.

well 3 people showed up and it was fun but cold.... mark(the new guy that we convinced to play had a near ace on hole number 12 to the left.   he skipped up to hit chains then slid about 40 feet and missed his birdie... so he only made 2 bucks for the chains... the skins were pretty much even and homie wasn't decided until the 20th hole... btw  i have it now and it will be at parkville on the 28th.   I know its only a nine hole course but it will be a litttle safari also with a couple portable baskets.... glover it doesn't matter that others didn't show up since i doubt that the outcome wouldhave changed... but who cares.... HOMIE IS ON SUNDAY THE 28th at parkville which i think is called England park?  anyway if you can make it come out and have some fun

Post by: discglover on December 23, 2008, 12:06:45 AM
I am curious who the originator actually was of Homie. I have a feeling Buckle and a couple hog legs was behind most of it. Probably a few guys playing and pondering and next thing you know we're playing for a Homie doll. Hey, I think Danno was still around back then wasn't he?? I bet he was behind it too.
Anyway, I'm calling up a few guys and if anyone has anybody they can call without internet access please do so. Anybody that's never played Homie before will learn this is quite an experience. Remember to bring 20 one dollar bills plus the 5 for overall score.

I think Arturo played much better in tournaments because of playing Homie and everybody trying to distract him.

I am curious who the originator actually was of Homie.

This article appeared in the Fall 1993 issue (#27) of Disc Golf World News.


Skinnered
by RamRock

(The real names of the people in this story have not been used to protect
the guilty.)  This year I was invited to play with a group of Kansas City
golfers who meet each Sunday, weather or not, for a round of disc golf.  The
game is skins, with a twist--the best round is worth the equivalent of five
skins.  On most days, we play for $1 a hole with the best-round shooter
getting $5 per man.  An ace, which is yet to happen, gets the lucky man $10
from each other person.

Oh, and then there's Homer.  Just to make the game a little more
interesting, the person who shoots the worst score for the 18-hole round
must take home Homer.  That is a Homer Simpson doll, which travels very
compactly in a coffin-like box.  Not for a minute, not for a second, should
you believe that taking Homer home is any less humiliating than it sounds.
Another neat rule is that the only way to get rid of Homer is to play.  If
you can't make it the next Sunday, Homer is yours until some other poor
duffer does worse than you.  You can't just hand him back.
The game is played at Rosedale Park on the Kansas side of the metro area.
For those unfamiliar with Rosedale, it is a challenging course where
distance plays a key role, but distance without accuracy can be cruelly
punished.  Set on a hill, it is layed out in a basic links type set-up,
running around the perimeter of the top of the park.  Woods, some of them
quite thick and nasty, and/or deep, deep ravines can come into play on 17 of
the 18 holes.  Shooting par here is a satisfying, and elusive score to all
but the best disc golfers around.

The Skinners, as we call ourselves, are seldom found on the leaderboards at
national and big regional events, but this competition is high-spirited, and
occasionally, quite intense.  It's a group game with 6-10 players going at
it early on Sundays, letting faster players (everyone else on the course)
play through.

There are lots of arcane secrets that I, as a rookie, have yet to
understand.  We all have names other than the ones we usually use.  There's
Tut and Duck and Crow--they seemed to have started it a few years back as
quarter skins with coolers of beer.  (As the stakes grew higher, the coolers
disappeared.)  It then expanded to include Budda, Crow, Odd, Hack, Bear,
Wolf (formerly Dog), and this year's rookies, Wallaby and yours truly,
RamRock.

The game is very well structured.  The first one to show up at the course on
Sunday goes last on the first hole and the last one there, throws first.
The money is collected before each hole and kept in a Crown Royal Bag.
Winning a skin results in immediate payment.  This is not a credit game.
The money holding and scorekeeping tasks are shared by all the players.

The big event of the year, held in September, was the Second Annual Bing
Crosby Memorial Hawaiian Skins Invitational.  For this stellar event, the
stakes were quintupled--yes $5 a hole and $25 for best round.  (Please let
it be known, that for the most part, we are just a bunch of working class
guys.  While I don't think anyone is taking food off their families' tables,
our regular skins represent a significant amount of risk and the Bing Crosby
skins was, well, five times greater.)  Anyway, 10 players showed up,
including two old-timers who traveled 120 and 550 miles.  Hack, Skinnering
for the first time this year, deuced the first hole for a skin.  Wallaby
snatched the easy (even for us) third hole.  Hack, who claimed (and we
believe him) that he had been playing almost no golf this year, nabbed three
more skins at #6 with a 60-footer.  Crow made money for the day on #10 with
a par, when RamRock boned a 20-footer for a push.  Tutter's day was made
when he was the only one to par the long #13.  Then we played and played and
played.  Our rules say that if there are still unsettled skins after 18
holes, we pay for two more holes of skins.  After that, we push for the
money that's there.  After 18 holes, Budda took the dough and the traveling
trophy, The Knife for the best score.  But, nobody had won a skin since #13.
The wind had come in on #1 and nobody was very close.  Same with #2.  The
pool was now worth $350.  Five of us had been shut out for the day, but
still had the chance to be the big winner.  Hole #3 produced three deuces.
Wallaby had a chance from 35 feet on #4 and RamRock from 45 on #5, but no
dough.  Wallaby again had the best looks on #6 and #7, but in vain.  Odd and
Wallaby were within 30 feet on #8.  Odd hit the number plate and Wallaby won
the cash.  It was a long, long round, which took over six hours to complete.
Bear, Duck, Dog, Odd, and Ramrock were skinned.

One nice tradition of the skins is that if a guy wins over $50, he is
supposed to buy a round for the group at one of the two watering holes we
patronize.  At this point, Crow owes us all about three rounds a piece.

I've been told that the Skinners play all year long.  In fact, two weeks after the Bing, we met at 8:00 a.m. (some of the Skinners must watch the Kansas City Chiefs, so we start early sometimes) on the coldest morning of the fall.  The temperature had dropped to 30° and there was the prettiest frost on the fairways.  Fortunately, it was wind free.

I am happy to report that nobody has been completely shut out during this year.  We have been thinking about keeping track of how each player fares, but probably won't do this.  However, a couple of players (and I won't even mention them by their Skinner names), have gotten to know Homer much better than the rest of us.  Some of us have never experienced that special kind of pain that Homer represents.  DOOOE!

Lots of players in this town want a piece of this action, but most of them throw too far, or score too well consistently.  We keep telling them to find their own group of equally-talented or semi-talented people.  You might want to try it out there.  It's been lots of fun and a really satisfying competitive format.DGWN

Avoided the notch in the box, but Bobby Arturo and Mantis took all the money.

7 strong souls (some of them don't know how to work the others yet.....we'll teach them....) and one child named Ben braved the teen digits temperature and Homey has been called for the Down Under on Sunday.

BTW, there were 7 other idiots disc golf players prior to 11:00am playing at Water Works....this bids well for the Ice Bowl then in my mind...

I earned Homie this week after a hard fought round Down Under. It was decided that the humiliating shame of possessing the doll would be greater if it were displayed at my place of employment. If you wish to visit Homer (or Barbie) please feel free to stop by Disc Golf World and say hello.

The next official Homie will be in two weeks (02/22). We will be playing Down Under... Backwards.

Hidden Valley Will be set up on April 5th.
I would say your best bet is get there and start in front of the Homie group if you are not wanting to play $1 a hole skins.
The whole course will be set up.
The skinners will be taking a break after 10 holes and grilling.

5 of the bravest disc golfers in town showed up for Homie this morning at Cliff. It was a fun round and the safari holes at the end were pretty neat. One of the holes we made up was a throw from the road near #9's pin, down hill, to the left to #8's pin. It was awesome.

Anyway, Homie is going up to Michigan for a week, and was called to be back in town at Rosedale two Sundays from now, 5/3/09 at 9am.

All pins have flags, most practice baskets have been pulled for another event.

We had some of the old timers just happen to join us for Homie. Hack and Bear were there with a newbie.
Hack (snake) and his newbie partner won the doll but beings they are honorary members that are no longer "regulars" I accepted to take it beings we were next highest scoring team.
Cobra and Bear won over-all but Mantis and Asp ended up with the most skins!!
We had a blast and felt fortunate to get Bear and Hack to play.

Are you planning on getting Homie going soon.
Between now and about May or June is the best times to plan a homie round.
It's going to be awhile before I can fling any discs again.
I'm thinking it may be till the Ice Bowl before my knee is ready but thought I would stir up interest in Homie again.

OK EVERYBODY!!
Mantis has Homie
Anybody interested in getting it going again should leave him a message.
Maybe that will get Homie back in play again.

I hope that's more satisfying to those concerned

Post by: kohjahk on November 03, 2009, 09:53:01 AM
I haven't played it in years but if it's still the same set up it's $1.00 per hole skins for 20 holes and $5.00 for over all score. If you get the worst score you "Win/Be" Homey, which is a Homey doll in a whiskey crate that you must take home and display on your TV or some other prominent place until next week where Homey will determine the course and style of play. I think there is also heckling allowed of the other players in some form or another as long as you don't physically interfere with a player's shot.

If you plan on going to Homie, bring $25 in $1 bills. Originally it was played amongst non-pro level players, but not so much recently.
Title: Re: Homie league

Title: Re: Homie league
Post by: jack on November 03, 2009, 10:50:51 AM
Hecklling is allowed and encouraged, except on the drive.  It was a non-pro level tehn Arturo when he was still learning the sport got WAAAAAY BETTER, and no one ever kicked him out....We did (buckle) kick out Danger, but let him back in.  Now it has pretty much turned into a doubles deal random draw.  The homey chooses the park, and the format (backwards, forwards, safari, etc) for each of the holes.  With the 20 hole format, there is always 2 extra holes.  It is skins, one tie all tie, and can carry over beyond 20 holes.  $5 is for the best overall score after 20 holes, not after the skins are decided.

It is a fun way to test your mettle, but makes it very hard when playing in tournaments against a fellow homey....you also have to have an animal nickname, as names are not allowed to be used, when you take the covetted homey home to display your poor play you must mark on the box your name, and then call the next week location.  The first person to the location is the last person to go, so the last to show up is the first to go.  It is to start at 9:00 am on Sunday morning, it has been around longer than most of the courses in Kansas City.......

Turn to page 3 of this thread, and Rick has some of the origins of Homey......
Title: Re: Homie league
Post by: Keizer on November 03, 2009, 01:10:38 PM
Homie is a blast! Things can get pretty funny with all the heckling going on. Also, I think doubles gets played when there are 8 or more people. I know we played singles before when it was at Cliff and only about 7 people showed.

Homie has been called for next week (12/20), 9:00 AM at the Zoo. Still tinkering with some hole ideas, but you can count on that the configuration will benefit me. So, that being said, bring your one's, your warm clothes and lets share the wealth that is Homie.

* Note – There may be some design issues with these holes, so all feedback is welcome and encouraged. That being said, all feedback that doesn’t benefit a forehand player that can’t throw backhand is highly discouraged and will be thrown out- effective immediately.

Tom's & Cindy's tee clearing procedure.....  ;D

step one: shovel snow off tee box and staging area approx 6' x 8' behind box for players comfort.
step two: sweep all remaining snow dust and ice off box
step three: apply ice melt uniformly, with heavier concentrations on any icy areas.

I would estimate one person alone can do this procedure to Cliff in approx 6 manhours, assuming a snow covering of 6" and minimal ice.

Good luck.

Right you are! I've got twenty 50'-70' holes mapped out for what will no doubt be singles format, we should finish in record time. :D

Please shovel, sweep, blow, kick or just be mean to any accumulation on any teepad, on any course.
Please don't use chemicals, especially salt. You will appreciate it when global warming kicks in.
BTW it is OK to drop grass seed in the whitish stuff. Not much good for traction, but again...

I'll call a few people but I doubt you'll have enough interest or daylight to get it in. I could be wrong but unlikely.
Its ALWAYS been at 9am on Sundays so skip this Sunday and call it for next Sunday

Mantis
Your going to play Homie at WW instead of playing in The Ice Bowl??? WTF
You can skip a week this time.
Just create a stir at The Ice Bowl about how much fun this is.
If it wouldn't create a problem. Down Under singles Homie would be fun but there will be alot of people deferring to play Down Under the first round I think.
You have the doll so its your call.
I just wanted to make you feel bad about padding your pockets instead of sharing the wealth at The Ice Bowl.

OK. Sorry to confuse so many people on here. That would be entirely my fault as i thought the ice bowl was on saturday.
that being said, bison does not want to take anything from the ice bowl. we can talk up where to play at the ice bowl this
weekend. also, its super bowl sunday so dont want that to hurt the attendence.

more talk and suggestions of where and when are welcome.

Another fun round and a great day for Homie.
Moose won overall.
Everybody won skins but me.
Plus I lost 2 more discs in water.
Time to replace a few.
Bull ended up with Homie and called the next secret location in 2 weeks because of Thanksgiving weekend.
Keeping in tradition the time should be set to 9am.
Sorry. No pics were taken this time

They somehow allowed Fred Smith to play the very first week after a stern decision for Ams only so who am I to say Tank cannot play.
I will bring it up at our next Home executive committee meeting.

I think the more the merrier. That way if there is an ace or alot of skins carrying there is some serious money to be made.
My top Homie take home was around $200 by hitting an ace on hole 8 Down Under with 12 players and all the skins riding from hole 1 plus the $5 from each player and I got 4 skins later in the round. Even though I did well monetarily I ended up with Homie. That's a standing record along with my 300 some odd foot birdie on the blind hole 2 shot at Water Works.

Sorry I couldn't play today guys but leave me PM about the next location.

Fred's curent PDGA rating is 967. Tank's is 1002.

If Ken plays wit you Homies, I wouldn't count on too many skins or overall going to the ams.  ;D

Whats that got to do with Bull having Homie on a perfectly good day to play.
Lets open up the field to everyone and make it pro/am doubles
A no cali clause would be implimented where odd man is out unless willing to pay for a 2 players skin cost and be allowed 2 shots on every lie.
At best we could get a few Sundays in before tournaments become a factor.

the last time I played will be the last time I play.  That was the most shenanigans rule ever, even in homey.  If you can't see the disc, you don't know where it is.

 I'm just curious who pulled that rule out of their butt?
The best part is you fell for it.
Are you telling me you never seen anyone play mind games in Homie?
Title: Re: Homie league
Post by: jack on February 28, 2011, 09:18:46 AM
when the rule is that you play the disc on a string, as it has been the last 10 yrs of homie that I had played, I understand it.  When you can't see the disc, you therefore cannot play the disc on a string, because you cannot see it.  If you cannot see it, you cannot play it from a point that you do not know where it is.  It becomes a ficticious point that somehow was allowed by a single team.

So then you say, "oh its gotta be right there", then fine, go in the water grab the disc where it is, show us the spot that it is at, and throw from that spot on a string, not an arbitrary piece of land that you "think" the disc might be equal to.

It was the worst call ever in the history of Homie, this has nothing to do with mind games, it has everything to do with the location of the disc never determined, and that is why I will never play the silly game again.
Title: Re: Homie league
Post by: discglover on February 28, 2011, 10:29:54 AM
The proper call is its on a string from  the basket from where it went in at as determined by the group. PERIOD!!
End of argument. Just because one team says no doesn't mean you should listen.
I had one end up in Mike's pond and was allowed my next shot on a string from a determined spot agreed upon by the group.
It was on the very first hole!!! :o
Title: Re: Homie league
Post by: discglover on February 28, 2011, 10:39:16 AM
All I can say is. You and your partner should have shot from what you knew was correct. Not let the ranting by the other team bother you which it ends up getting them so flustered it affects them.
It sounds like your own fault for listening to them.
Title: Re: Homie league
Post by: jamidanger on February 28, 2011, 11:09:24 AM
it is better to be kicked out of homie than to resign jack-hopper, you know you want some of them skins but you allow your bad putting, inability to locate a disc, and temper impede your desire. spin 8 times counterclockwise to loosen your mind up, and bring on the doll!

Incorrect, its not where the disc lst went in, its where it is at, if the group determined that your disc was in the pond and let you throw from that spot, then fine, but it wasnt an island shot as is the case with the shot that was counted.

It wasnt our shot, it was another team, and we disagreed with the call then, and I still do today.  You have no real frame of reference to grasp on the commment or the relationship, it wasnt a group call at all, it was a single person that called it, and I say they called it wrong.  Had it been a group decision then I don't think I'd be in here complaining about it, but it wasnt a group decision, it was a single person's decision that the team affected by wanted to have a ruling on.  The group already said it wasnt correct, but no one wanted to see that call, and deferred to the judgement of 1.

No worries, Jamie it didnt finish me, as the next hole the team that took the trumped up sopot took all the skins and money, so one play did it the nexct time through......
