Found and Lost / Lost Disc on #11 at SMP
« on: July 18, 2015, 09:31:04 am »
I threw my 2nd shot, a purple Dynamic Disc Thief, into the high grass to the right (northeast) of the basket (long pin). My estimate is that that it landed between the tree that's halfway bare and the one about 65ft towards the middle pin. My name and number should be on it.

General Banter / Back to Field Work... Oh, joy?
« on: July 05, 2015, 11:33:22 pm »
The KC Wide Open is over and gone for the year and there's a little over a month before the MAC arrives in August. I'm not sure on how many player's do this (I consider myself a very analytical person), but I immediately started listing everything that didn't go as planned that weekend.

I am seeing where I need to improve (I play Recreational, so I know improvement areas equal EVERYWHERE!), and listed some top choices to work on:

1. Developing a confident run-up to improve driving distance (I have been throwing accurately from a stand still, averaging 250-275 with a lucky max at 300ft with the right tail wind.).
2. Narrowing the available options of which discs to carry and becoming more familiar with them. I've read about 5-6 discs type total with 2-3 each in different molds or weights works great.
3. Putting practice every day.
4. Avoid the courses except as an award on the weekends to apply what you've learned.
5. Develop the proper mentality and sticking to a game plan regardless of a bad throw.

I know I'm a ways off from the level I'd like to see myself playing at. Heck, we would all love to play better. So, I'm not really asking for anything but wondering if anyone has any thoughts on field work and where they've gained the biggest improvements in their game.

I've also attached a copy of a spreadsheet my wife made for me of all the discs I own. Alot of them, I don't throw, FYI. I color coded which ones are stable, under and overstable.

Thanks to anyone who comments or even takes the time to read this.

Found and Lost / Found at Waterworks near 4 & 5
« on: June 21, 2015, 05:18:02 pm »
Found a disc on 5 during Saturday's B-Tier round at Waterworks of the KC Wide Open. Initals of DN only and 51009 written on it. Its a glow disc by Innova and possibly has a faded Lucky 13 Open faded stamp on it. Pdga.com says 51009 is Derek Norris. If this is yours Derek, or if anyone knows him, I'd be more than happy to return it somehow.

Found and Lost / Lost Disc on #8 - Bad Rock DGC
« on: May 18, 2015, 05:35:50 pm »
Threw my redish orange Renegade into the group of trees to the left just down the hill from the #8 tee. As it sailed, it looked like it cleared the trees but I heard a crash after it hyzered. Name and number are on it. Reward if found.

Found and Lost / Found @ P.C. on #16.

Since I consider myself an honest man, I'm giving this disc to whoever can identify it. Found on #16 to the left in the trees, no number, only initials.

Threw my white Escape with a Trilogy stamp into the trees, to the left just at the bottom of the hill from the 16th tee. After 20 minutes of looking, I'm beginning to wonder if it sailed high enough to go into the field past the woods. If anyone finds it, reward offered.

Found and Lost / Found "items of interests" in woods at Rosedale.

If anyone lost some particulars out at Rosedale, please describe what was lost. My younger nephew came upon some random items scattered in the woods. If no accurate claim is made, I'll turn them in to DD this coming Wednesday.
