General Banter / Des Moines Disc Golf

I am headed up to Des Moines this weekend and have time to play one course.  Any suggestions?

Found and Lost / Lost Firebird at Water Works
« on: March 07, 2009, 04:43:00 pm »
So me and a couple of my buddies were playing Water Works today.  On #8, two of us got our discs around the pin and the third guy put his way left (on the left side of #5 actually).  While looking for that disc, we let a foursome of high school or really young college kids play through.  We found the lost disc buried in the woods.  However, when coming back to the pin where the other group was finishing up, we noticed that they picked up my buddy's putter (which we got back after asking them about it) and started to pick up my driver before I said something.  We finished the hole and realized that my buddy's extra drive was also missing from around the pin.  We confronted the guys twice about the extra driver and they denied having it twice.

Knowing they took one disc and tried to take another right in front of us, we suspect they had no problem of snagging the extra drive.  But without bags and us being able to see all the discs they were carrying, they either a) stuffed it down their pants and none of us are going there or b) picked it up and threw it somewhere on the course. 

With all that said, if someone finds a red Star Firebird at Water Works, it might be my buddies.  Neither of us remember what the weight nor do I think he wrote his name on it.  Thanks everybody.

General Banter / WSJ Article
« on: February 04, 2009, 09:49:22 am »
In the WSJ this morning, an article was reporting on "Ready to go" city projects around the country, including:

"Austin, Texas, could use $886,000 to build a 36-hole "disc golf" course, for frisbee tossing. It would be "environmentally and financially sustainable."

I have never planned, designed, or built a disc golf course, but over $400,000 for each course seems really expensive.  But I do like my frisbee tossing.

General Banter / SMP Course

Has anyone played Shawnee Mission lately?  Are the flags still up to mark the tee pads?  It is supposed to touch 50 degrees today, so I might be catching the "flu" this afternoon.  Might be the last decent day for awhile.

Any update on the Shawnee Mission Park course?  There were rumors it might be in the ground at the end of October.

Any tourney info on the DUI coming up?

General Banter / Tournaments and League Play
« on: February 21, 2007, 10:03:57 am »
Three questions:

1) Has the KCFDC set there 07 tournament schedule, and if so, what would that be?  I know there were some tournaments listed in the last newsletter, but I did not know if those were permanent.

2) Do leagues start the week of DST, and when/where are leagues held?

3) Are there any bag tags left?

On a side note, while it was my first time playing in a minor flood, it was great to be out on Monday to play.  Hopefully, the courses will dry up over the next few days because it sounds like perfect weather is here for till end of the week.

General Banter / Big Bead, Small Bead?

Can someone explain the difference between a big bead and a small bead mold?  Exactly what part of the disc are people referring to?  Thanks in advance.

General Banter / KCFDC Membership
« on: January 09, 2007, 12:11:54 pm »
I am planning on joining both the PDGA and KCFDC this year.  So in order to join both, I need to fill out both applications and send in one check for $70 to the KCFDC for an amateur membership?  Thanks for you help in advance.

General Banter / California Trail??
« on: November 21, 2006, 10:27:06 am »
Is there still a 9-hole course at California Trail Middle School?  I have some cousins in town for the holidays and am going to introduce them to disc golf.  I thought a 9-hole pitch and putt might be a good start.  Or I could take them to Down Under like my first time.  Maybe Blue Valley.  WyCo anyone?  Actually, if we don't go to California Trail, I will take them to Prairie View unless anyone has a better idea for a first-timer.
