Found and Lost / Lost PINK TL at Shawnee Mission hole 17
« on: May 26, 2015, 09:05:46 am »
Welp, it's a brand new Pink TL that doesn't have my name or number.  I threw it in the rough up on the hill to the left and just couldn't judge where it landed.  We looked and looked, but couldn't find it.

Hey Tom, hope you get this before league tonight :)  Is league at PC or Lakeside tonight and what is the start time?  Sorry if this was already clearly posted somewhere, I just couldn't seem to find the right details where I was looking.   Thanks for your help.

Anyone have greater detail concerning the information listed in this article from the KC Star?  Apparently there will be disc golf and foot golf.  Is it normal for developers to casually mention a sport like disc golf in their plans without any serious intent?  Who's got the 411 on this thang?

I tried to make a hyper link, it doesn't look like it worked, oh well.  Just copy and paste to get to article.

Found and Lost / pink mvp volt at Bad Rock Creek (Stocksdale)
« on: January 04, 2015, 01:26:57 pm »
I lost a bright pink MVP Volt on the pond (back 9 pond) out at Bad Rock Creek course in Liberty.  It has the name Rich Yarges along with a phone number.  It was towards the middle of the pond but the ice was to thin for me to go that far out.  The disc has some sentimental value, it would mean a lot to get it back.

I agree with a couple other posters on this thread.  If I throw a disc in a lake and I don't take the time or spend my resources on retrieving the disc, tough titties (my grandma used to say that when life seemed "unfair"  ;D ).  How in the world can I get mad at someone who grabs their snorkel gear and dives for discs when I am not willing to go in the pond/lake myself and do it?  We all have the same opportunity to dive/search for our discs, the only difference is these guys do something about it.  I knew where the disc went in, I didn't grab my mask and strip down to my skivvy's, this equals me giving up my right of ownership, end of story in my opinion.

I also don't mind paying a guy money to get a disc back that I threw in the water.  I was out a Jericho Lake course in Aurora IL and there were two young guys diving for discs in a notorious spot that always gobbles up discs.  Not only were they out there finding other discs but they would go get your disc right then if you paid them $5.  I had no problem handing them 5 bucks because I wasn't going to wade out in the water 20 ft offshore in that nasty water filled with glass bottles and fish hooks to get my disc.  And I had no problem with them keeping my disc if I wasn't going to pay them for their efforts.  I guess I just see this topic differently then others, but I'm ok with that.

Let me also say that I hand back discs that I find (ask people on the course, cuz often times someone had just left it a during that round), put them in the drop box at WW's, throw them in the box at DD and DGW, and even call the numbers on the discs.

Were you carrying a Roadrunner?  I hear Coyotes like Roadrunners...a LOT.

One of my kiddos was out at Heritage for a soccer tournament this past Saturday (11/08/14) so I thought I'd ditch the wife and go over to the disc golf course area for a quick sneak peek at what has been going on lately.  As I walked through the opening of tee box one area proceeding down the 1st fairway I hear some noise.  I scan the ground ahead of me and just 50 yards away is a small pack of coyotes.  Ummm....Holy Sh$T Ghost!! I almost crapped myself.  I immediately turned around and booked it out of there.  Not cool, but I lived to tell the story.  Don't those things eat disc golfers?? :-\

Thank you for the helpful reply Jack.  I have only lived here for 2 years so I don't have the back-story on many of the ins and outs of why things are the way they are.  I for one am genuinely bothered (or upset) that the KCWO is not a NT this coming year.  My hopes would be that our event is SO attractive to all levels of pro disc golfers (because of the quality of courses, the involvement of the DG community, and the level of sponsorship) that it is a no brainer the KCWO is ALWAYS a NT event.  I view this as a demotion (that's just the competitive part of me coming out) and that another city has pulled their event together in such a way that they were deemed more capable of nailing a NT event.  I have been to the GBO the last 2 years and while I personally love the DD people (all the one's I have met, including Scott here in KC, have been incredible people), their stores, and some of their products, there is no way I could honestly say the courses they use in Emporia are better than the courses we have in KC.  I guess this speaks to the fact that these tournaments are much more than just courses the pros/ams play; it's all the intangibles (or tangibles depending on how you look at it) such as money, sponsors, environment, swag, atmosphere...whatever you want to throw in there.  I wish no ill will on the GBO (that's stupid to even think that way) but I do hope that somehow WE (the dg community of KC) do a serious gut check and ask ourselves, as you have suggested, are we are willing to become so upset that the Wide Open is not a NT this year that we band together and take this thing to levels that demand national attention and serious considerations to be a NT every year.  Maybe I am out of line in my thinking (totally possible!!) but I am so proud of the disc golf heritage we have in this city and what we have to offer that I want KC to ALWAYS be a MUST NT every year.

Thanks for the low down Dick.  I am super sad about that but what can you do. 

Tournaments / KC Wide Open 2015 NOT to be a NT???
« on: September 22, 2014, 03:30:07 pm »
I just read a schedule for 2015 Majors and National Tour Elite Series and it appears that the Kansas City Wide Open will not be a NT in 2015.  Should I be shocked at this news??? Cuz I kinda am.  How in the world does the GBO (no disrespect to them for real) get to be a NT and the KCWO drops to what appears to be an A-tier tourney.  Again, I could be reading this all wrong (hopefully I am mistaken) but is this true?  Are they just looking to shake things up?  Is the GBO just that much better of a tourney?  Who's got the scoop?
