Ok, so does that mean there is nothing going on during the week as of right now?

USM ace fund league on Tuesday at 5:30 is happening. Official KCFDC leagues will be starting up the first week of April. Wednesday traveling league is going already too. The thread for it is here: http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=13141.0

Anyone on the east side that wants to get down and dirty working on a neglected disc golf course that desperately needs some TLC has a golden opportunity this Saturday at 9am. I'll be out there with tools and a truck to haul off downed trees remaining from the fall work day along with other tasks needing done. There a lot to do and I'll do it all myself if I have to. The list includes:

1. Hauling off those remaining trees.
2. Cutting and hauling off at least three more key trees to open up #5 and #18.
3. Removing a downed tree on the bonus hole and opening it up some more so we can use it to supplant #17 until it the original hole is available again.
4. Moving tee signs for #16 and #17 for the temporary redesign until dirt work on original #17 is done.
5. General repair of tee signs throughout the course.

This will be a good start to getting this course back in shape. Flags are on order but won't likely be in by Saturday but they will be getting replaced as soon as they come in.

Questions? Let me know, PM or email or just reply here.

.....PS, KMont, where's my real thread?  after I spent hours looking for your custom jester metal mini ;-) ?  lol

Ask and you shall receive.... Especially after going above and beyond to rescue my favorite mini for me.  8)

Tell the truth, you just wanted an excuse to meet up and drink beer and play pool so you went out and got my mini didn't you?  ;D

Now I need to get out and throw this course. Been in for several years. I have no excuse...  ::)

Das Loomis is also kicking the idea around.

Yeah, Loomis is pretty good at that. I've worked some with him before myself.

The forum has been updated and is back in business. Sorry for the downtime.  ??? I guess since I took a vacation the Forum decided it needed one too.

Alright everyone... BACK TO WORK!  ~sigh~  ::)

USM / USM League - Fall Retreat
« on: October 28, 2016, 07:40:36 AM »
The USM crew will be having a "Fall Retreat" for lack of better words.... The plan is to set up camp tonight at Clinton Lake State Park in Lawrence (I plan to be there by 4pm today) and staying tonight and tomorrow night with plans to get rounds in at Clinton, Perry (10am Saturday) and Centennial. There will be glow, beer, fire.....  Join us if you like.

I know there are plenty of other things going on this weekend but it's going to be so nice out make sure you get out to play somewhere.

I remember the Polecat! that's an old-school disc. Didn't know they came that light. Like I said, probably be great for a small kid getting started in the game. Otherwise a catch disc.....  Or, a disc to throw when people are around so no one gets hurt maybe.

Sounds like it might be what I call a premi. A disc with a logo or tourney stamp designed as a toss around disc or just a "premium" for entering the event. I don't know of any PDGA approved discs much below 130 gms. I have seen a few Lightning discs down in the 120s but never anything as low as 100 that was intended to be used in play. While there is a maximum weight of 200 grams there is no official lower limit in the technical standards guide that I can find: http://www.pdga.com/files/PDGATechStandards_5-14-14.pdf

You say it's a putter, what mold and/or manufacturer?

With all of that said, it doesn't sound very useful to me but a small child might be able to work with it.
