Barter Town / Commander for Ranger
« on: August 12, 2018, 06:28:02 PM »
I’ve got a pretty lightly used grey DD commander bag.  I recently picked up a DD backpack cart and it’s a super tight fit.  I hear the ranger fits better and am looking to trade.  Is anyone interested?  It doesn’t have to be brand new (prefer lightly used) and I’m not super picky on color but PM me if interested.  FYI I do have the rain fly for the commander as well.

Is this on the PDGA website anywhere yet?  I was just curious what the round ratings were for last night, but couldn't find it on the PDGA site.

Has anyone played the new course in Bonner Springs that eMac put in?  Is it done? 

Who designed it and got this going?!

I started playing disc golf in 2009 and tore my ACL in 2010.  Your recovery will depend solely on how you treat it.  I would take full advantage of whatever physical therapy you can get from your insurance company after surgery.  Then, ease back into it.  I would say it was a full year after surgery before I was comfortable with throwing 100%.  I still wear a knee brace to this day just because my form isn't the greatest.  If I were you, I'd really take this opportunity to re-invent your form (if needed) and get that front foot to flip open at release.  This is assuming you tore the ACL on your plant leg, of course.  If it's the other one you tore then you're in a better position than I was...

Is EvW a Friday/Saturday now or are the dates wrong on the revised schedule?

"Short" ... lol

415 average per hole.  Just a light fairway, or hard mid, right Dick?

For me I'd just like to see disc golf being more mainstream.  We've finally got ourselves onto SportsCenter, discs are being sold at major retailers, there is live streaming coverage, our top pros are sponsored by some of the bigger shoe manufacturers...  We're getting there but how cool would it be to have some college teams to the point where there are conferences and legitimate match-ups and not just one big college tournament every year?  Maybe even high schools could get into it.  Let's get the USDGC or last round of Worlds on TV...the list goes on. 

Another thing to think about is you're thinking about Kansas City in specific with regard to # of courses and how our tournaments end up turning people away.  KC disc golf is massive and unlike most cities across America.  I think there are still far more ball golf courses nationwide (I could be wrong) and far too many people out there who still don't even know what disc is or if they do know what it is and want to play in tournaments have to drive hours to play in one!  I would also note that probably 50% of the people that I speak with in public about being a regular disc golf player have no idea what I'm talking about and that's in Kansas City!  I guess to bring this full circle...more people playing equals more people bringing friends, relatives, etc. to the course and sharing the sport with them.  If they come to a course and don't enjoy themselves...what is to bring them back???  I remember the first time I played disc golf and I shot 38 over par at Cliff Drive (poor course choice by my friends for my first course).  If there were no chains on those baskets it would've been probably 100+ over par because unlike what Tracy said...I still believe putting to be the hardest part of the game.  Would I have come back after shooting 100+ over par???  Likely not.

I'm not so certain that making the baskets catch better is geared towards the top pros.  They account for what, maybe 5% of the total disc golfing population?  Does it benefit them to have baskets that catch more putts?  Yes.  Do they complain when the basket doesn't catch their putts?  Yes.  BUT, I think the reason disc golf basket manufacturers are doing it (in part) is to attract more players to the sport.  Do you think that if we remove the chains from the baskets more people will play disc golf?  I don't think so!  In my opinion it would drive people away!  It makes things infinitely harder when there are no chains.  Discs are flying faster, discs are flying easier and baskets are catching more putts (although it's odd...I can't ever get that to work out so well).  The game is more and more geared towards the amateur player and it's just part of it.  I get where you're going with this argument and "how things were in the good old days," but I don't think it makes sense from a "grow the sport" perspective.

No longer have it, sorry! 

Is the layout posted anywhere by chance?  I don't have Facebook.
