General Banter / Re: Disc Golf shoes
« on: July 22, 2013, 10:37:57 PM »
I just bought a pair of Wenger Swiss Army hiking boots at Famous Footwear today for $45 on clearance--only $5 less than their current online store price.  Their a mid boot hiker with plenty of tread that's not too gnarly; pictured here: http://www.famousfootwear.com/en-US/Product/34582-1028491/Wenger+Swiss+Army/Cool+Grey/Mens+Anchorage+Mid.aspx#ProdDetailsTabs
They're super comfy for me (I've got hobbit feet that are flatter than a 10x firebird.), and the boots are surprisingly flexible about the ankle.  But I have no idea how they're going to hold up to disc golf.  My Columbias have worn to the point of discomfort after less than a year.  Anyone ever worn a pair of Wengers?  Everywhere I look on the web, they're pretty cheap for what they claim to offer.  That's usually a red flag, but I'm hoping it's just a quality brand trying to gain a foothold in the marketplace. ::)

I'd like to thank the many, many guys who've been willing to share their rounds on the spot.  I've learned a ton from more names than I can remember.

I agree with you that kcfdc.org is the best place to start.   I guess I'm commenting from the inside, since I know the forum offers details that you don't get initially from kcfdc.org.  An example would be the OP event that almost happened, or local golfers reaching out to other players for a round somewhere.  Perhaps new or outside golfers will take to the forums to scout out local attitudes, or competition.  Whatever picture is painted in someone's mind after visiting here depends on what they come here to find.  There's plenty of good stuff to be found here, but it is an online discussion board... ::)

Besides KCFDC, I'm also a LBG (Lawrence Brewer's Guild) forum rat.  They most important part of the forum locks out people that have not paid dues.  Personally, I think it is awesome.

ekolk - going back to when we met the first time at a board meeting - if I had to pay dues, I would have joined sooner.

 the FEEDGA also does this, though I believe you can read anything, but have to be current to post...

 I also think its a great idea....

This ^ Not a bad idea for an exclusive organization like the PDGA.  How exclusive does a local disc golf club need to be?
Kansas city is a hub for disc golf.  As far as I can see, this forum is hands down the best place for new players, and disc golfers passing through, to find out when, where, and how to get plugged in.

Has anyone else ever encountered difficulty accessing other club forums when traveling, when all you want to do is find out when/where local events are being held?

Yeah, this is Darin.  Thanks guys.  Anthony, we've got to hook up this summer.  I've got a stack of discs to go down there.  I'll add his to it.

Found a disc belonging to him.  I've pm'ed him, but it looks like he's new to the forums.  PM me if you're him or you know him.

Barter Town / Re: wanted: 10/11x cheetahs
« on: July 28, 2012, 01:28:42 PM »
still looking for these?  I've got a purple tie dyed 11x kc pro cheetah, 168 g, in good condition with no ink on it.  PM me with your offer if you're still in the market.

I've been wanting to try out a teebird and would actually like to have one in champ and in star (though not a big fan of ecostar, I would consider).  174-175g preferred.  I have several different drivers to offer in trade, also in good-excellent condition.  Perhaps we can make a clean swap.  Not looking for any specific run--just a teebird.  I'd rather barter with the plastic in my possession than buy a new one at the moment.

pm if interested
