Haven't seen nor heard from Flip since last year.
Does he still play? I thought he ran it.
I would love to play it again.

Its still on the Events schedule, but I haven't heard anything.

BTW The salt burn on the north side has been 'strawed' and green life is coming back.

I assume at some point he'll want the keys to the Swope baskets to move everything short again?

Is anybody looking for a partner? I was going to play with Kevin Simpson but his discs got stolen from his car and now he might not be able to play. He still has some extras that they, for some reason left, but I definitely want to play even if he is not able to (I should know by tomorrow for sure on his status). I am willing to play either adv or open. PM me if interested

Wow, what types of discs does he throw? Perhaps we could get some donor discs coming his way and get him out playing again...
Title: Re: Solstice Doubles on for this year?
Post by: discglover on June 15, 2009, 10:21:39 AM
I still have an innova bag that is ripped slightly in one seam he can have plus whatever he picks out of my stash of numerous discs.
Title: Re: Solstice Doubles on for this year?
Post by: coops on June 15, 2009, 10:30:36 AM
wow, that is generous! i'll let him know. he throws almost exclusively innova, except like a buzzz and a few others. i've got several that i'm going to give to him but i'll have him pm you about the bag and whatnot. he also said that he was planning on calling some of the disc resale places in town and asking them to contact him if they see anything with his name on the back getting sold. if anybody sees any discs with the name kevin simpson on the back or a funky looking KS on the front (lower right in line with the stamp) then they are probably his. anywayk, thanks again, i'll let him know and have him contact you

As Cooper stated, i'm pretty much SOL for this weekend. At this point, I'll throw anything that flies -- I don't think I can afford to replace my whole bag this week  :) If anyone has ANYTHING they don't use, I would be extremely grateful. Thanks a bunch.

Just not sure exactly what your looking for. I will part with a stingray too if i have to.

Well, I just went down to Tower Tavern to register. They looked at me like I was smokin Crack, and told me they did not know anything about it. I'd stick to Disc Golf World for registering.

I believe (!) that if you come out Saturday you will have more discs than you can carry!

Post by: Keizer on June 15, 2009, 02:14:00 PM
I have an entire spare bag you can borrow if you'd like, Kevin. It has an Aviar P&A putter, some kind of Lightning putter, 2 DX Rocs, DX Valk, Star Beast, Champ Eagle, DGA Rogue, FLX Avenger SS, FLX Predator, Raging Inferno, and a Z Force.

Most of Swope has been moved short.  Just need to move #14 and #15.  #12 will stay where it is because the P&R hit the short pin with the mower, and it needs to be moved back before it's usable.

can it get moved to the long right position by the tree?

As of last night #12 IS long right in front of the small pine tree. C'mon Palmer, get with the program!

Beyond measure
Majestic Swope is ready for some low scores and high trash talking
If you pass out it's your own damn fault.
Check out the rejuvenated deck from www.woodrenew.com
Have fun and pack out what you bring in, especially bottles, just an idea.
