Cliff Drive / Re: Trash abatement
« on: Today at 01:20:39 PM »
The plastic one's came from Coca-Cola.  Someone in the club's brother in law worked in the shipping department.  I'm struggling to remember who at the moment.  Getting old sucks.  I got one truck and trailer load from him.  John Theiss got some for Young and I took some to Cliff Drive.  Old Pike got the rest because I didnt have room to store a bunch in my garage and none of the other courses would claim them.  I believe he said we could have as many as we need that the polar bears dont get.  The plastic ones can be brittle and break, but they're lighter and you don't need a tetanus shot to handle them.

i personally would rank majestic behind des moines, gbo, stl, and columbia.  played majestic last yr and 6+ hr rounds, 30 min waits, and poorly marked ob's did a number on me.  it was obvious that brp (and hyland) put great effort into making their courses awesome aesthetically but tended to lean towards one skill set each.  kaposia could have been one of the best courses i've ever played based on the design, but was so over grown and ugly, i was speechless when i was told it is pay-to-play.

ps:  had a blast in minneapolis though.  super clean town.  visited with old college friends.  stayed at mall of america.  family never missed the car.  they shopped and rode indoor roller coasters while i was off playing disc golf.  drove by the new target field.  stadium looked cool from the outside but twins were out of town.  awesome round with a deaf disc golfer last round.  besides winning our card by at least 6 strokes, he taught us the difference in sign language between a par 3 and a snowman  :o.  good to know  8).  too bad the tourney was mediocre at best.

i've had good luck with penetrating oil.  holes 3 and 12 at cliff that never move and a couple at blue valley were locked up pretty tight.  turn them upside down and fill the key hole with oil until it runs out the bolt holes.  leave for 24 hrs.  try lock the next day.  i've only ever had one that took more than three days worth of oil.  sometimes, after letting them sit for a couple of days in the oil, a light tap with a hammer will break the bind.  once free, put on spare lock and take that one home and soak for a few days in oil.

after going thru this process with several locks, i've found that preventative oiling and unlocking twice a year is enough to keep them in good working order.  $3 bottle of oil usually lasts me a year or two.

I believe you're referencing the low pin by the road - I've deuced that one before with no wind.  It's not nearly as tough as deucing the one at the top of the hill by the reservoir...

sorry, i didnt realize the orange pin is still in and/or is ever used.  every time i put the basket there, all i heard was cries.  nice 2, and yes, a much harder deuce, .  its the same distance horizontally, but much farther up, and the tee pad doesnt line up correctly for a big drive to that pin.  only person i've seen get to that one is big jerm.  pin high, 35 ft left.

18 makes it an ugly tweener finishing hole... lets play it to the long??

I would say it is a tweener hole in any position.  Nobody is going to deuce it (despite a fairway ace) and the long is definitely threeable with a good drive off the tee...

I recant my previous statement about nobody deucing it despite a fairway ace.  Evidently a jump putt for two IS possible  ;D

Warming up for 09 worlds, i saw coda deuce it with a straddle from the first tree, barsby put one about 12 ft away, and aj put one past the pin, even with the second tree.  still cant believe we had no wind at cliff drive that whole week.   ::)

i believe the pdga minimum is 1 hr after the last card came in so joe, u were looking at 1.5 hrs minimum.

while i can appreciate the stance jack is taking as far as supporting local businesses (i'm sure he has an estimate as to how much ntdf money he has had granted thru the years), i dont necessarily agree in this instance. more prevalent in 2 day tourneys.  it seemed as i was looking around at lunch, most of the people who traveled had brought their lunch.  i remember when i first started playing tourneys, 1 day pdga's were rare.  i've given 1.5 hrs after last card all 3 yrs mainly because there's not alot of choices close to CD and not alot of locals even that familiar with the area.  i would be more than willing to start 2nd round 30 mins earlier next year.  i was ready to tee at 2.  thanks for the feedback joe.  anyone else have opinions?

i love the food truck idea as someone who is pretty much stuck there thru lunch.  i thought keizer had a food truck lined up to come by last yr or the yr before, but i never saw one.  i dont know any personally but would need some kind of guarantee of arrival before advertising.  with disc golfers being notoriously bad at pre-registering, i dont see how i can give them a guaranteed head count to warrant their time.  prove me wrong next year and i'll pay for famous frank in 2015 myself.

jack, i was talking about the light pole on the ctp, not hole 12.  this is the first yr i believe no-one hit it.

Actually, I thought the pace of play was pretty good.  2hrs 50 mins for 1st card in 1st round.  2.5 hours 2nd round on two pretty tough set ups with wind and considerable cliffs and ob.  that's considerably better than any tournament i've played this year.  just part of pdga play.

sorry about 13 keizer.  its just the short pin, 90% of the field gets a three.  with the loss of trees there, its a waste of time to play that hole when you are trying to identify a Tree Love Champion!  and, if you gotta walk that way to the 14th tee, your bag might as well be 1 disc lighter.  8)

Tree Love Classic 2013 Recap:
Thank you to everyone who came out, hung out, played, visited, donated, traveled, wore green, and showed the trees some love.  It was awesome, my favorite Tree Love Classic yet.  Hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.  Final amount raised will be sorted out and announced Tuesday.
Congratulations to all of our winners, Joe Hesting, Heath Kinton, Gary “G$” Harvey, “Steeler” Doug Kroll, Greg Mattoon, Brenda Lowe, and Javen Bowie.  Nice shooting on a tough course everybody.
Special shout out to Scott Reek, who did WAY more work than he was supposed to, and won the Silent Auction with an $80 donation to the Cliff Drive Tree Fund.  Also, Ron Klein-Mo for his help, spotting, CTP donation, and judging.
Demian Vela won the Star Rancho Roc CTP.  G$ Won the Green CTP for a $15 Gift Certificate to Dynamic Discs – Kansas City.  I believe no-one was rejected by the light pole this year.
Mike Keizer’s 48 bounty was pretty safe with a couple of 52’s in the afternoon being closest.  The entire $100 donation was appreciated.  I was rooting for someone to claim half of it, but the wind and the trees were not.
Simultaneous sorry and congratulations to Suzie Zell for being the first person ever at the TLC to be stuck in a tree above two meters.  Actually she was above 10m, but who’s counting.
Thank you all again.  We’ll do it up even bigger and better next year.  See you all then. 
Drew
