Beginners / High School kids

I'm a teacher with a small class. I have two classes and the students spend 2 1/2 hours a day for 2 years with me, FUN, FUN ,FUN. ;D 
At the end of every year, my second year students have a BBQ. This is my last 2 year program, I'm switching programs. Me and the kids throw disc around all the time and we have a nice grassy area we throw in.

 Here's the deal:
I would like to have a mini tournament for all my students this year to finish off my last year in this program. I'm going to buy each kid a disc and was thinking a mid-range , maybe a Mako. I'll grill some dogs some time in there.

Would Swope be a good course?  Putter vs. Mid-range?  No more then 20 of us, so would a small tourney be OK with the regular players? Should I have a few experienced players to help?

If any one has any idea's , I'm open.
I think the kids will have fun and who knows what will come of this.

Young Park - Blue Springs / I Apologize
« on: December 02, 2012, 06:08:24 PM »
I played Young Park a few weeks ago and hated it. We couldn't find the pads or the pins. Put one in the water, every other shot was in the stickers. BAD,BAD,BAD. Well I told people I knew how horrible it was.

I talked to Dick down at DGW and he told me how to play it. Today was beautiful and I slowed down and threw short to keep it straight and guess what, it worked. I actually did well and started to like the course. I did not play all 18 but have a new way of looking at this course. Not wanting to say this but it almost ,kind of,  maybe  suits my style of playing, maybe a little , maybe. I want to play it again with more time and see how I do.
Anyway I'm sorry for bad mouthing this course.

Cliff Drive / Anyone playing in the A.M. tomorrow ?
« on: November 05, 2012, 07:17:31 PM »
A young man I know (new to the sport) wants to play Cliff tomorrow. He's 20 and is tring to hit as many courses as he can. I think he will be there around 9. It would be nice if he could hook up with someone.

Clover Dell Park - Sedalia / Clover Dell map
« on: August 04, 2012, 10:23:13 PM »
We were on our way to Warsaw and I stopped at Clover Dell. Looking at #1 tee, it looks like it goes over the road. The tee sign faces the road. I didn't play because of time but wondered if a map is availible?  We went by the course at Warsaw, all wide open. My wife will like that, it's small but better than nothing.


General Banter / Seniors? how many?
« on: July 25, 2012, 12:52:08 PM »
I know I'm new but I have many questions.
I am 56 years old and just started playing Disc Golf. I have played Frisbee every since the 70's and can throw a Frisbee very well. Now it's a new game.

I was reading ( I research every thing) PDGA's web site and found this about Seniors.

It bases seniors at 50 years old.
 Is there a Seniors league in the area? How many out there are in this age group? And what are you doing different then the younger player?

I know I do not have the flexibility the younger players have. I do keep it in the fairway, just not that far.

It's HOT

Beginners / Old and new

Hi everybody. I'm an old guy who just started playing and  I'm new to the game. (old Frisbee player)  I have been going to Legecy and P-Hill. Wow I'm addicted and started this as a way to loss weight but have found a new love. The best part is everyone I have ran in to has been very nice and friendly. I really liked the way I was treated at DGW and the poeple I have encountered on the courses have been great.

I would like to say Thank You to the young man that helped me out at P-Hill on Saturday, it helped me put another 40/50 feet to my throw. I'm still working on it.

If you see me out on the courses, give me a break. I'm old and fat and very out of shape but am enjoying my time on the field. I have the summers off and have been going out in the mornings to beat the heat.

Here is what I need to know. I have Par'ed a few baskets and wondered how far do they figure a throw is to make a Par? A 215 ft is Par 3 and a 450 is Par4. How is this figured?

Thank you
