General Banter / Hawkridge Master Plan
« on: October 02, 2013, 09:05:27 am »
Raymore, MO Parks and Rec is currently completing a Master Plan for Hawkridge Park.  A new disc golf course is one option being evaluated for this park.  We have a course budgeted in our 2014 budget, but the location has not yet been determined and this park is much larger than some of our other options so it is preferred to get a full 18 hole course.   As I said, this is one of the many options that could go in to this park.  They are taking input from the public and our using the following website to gather data.  If you would, please go to hawkridgepark.mindmixer.com  register an account and put in your vote as part of the public.

Well that sucks.  And at the club championships you play for tags on your card only.  It only counts that way for the initial distribution for the following year.  I know because I got 4th overall last year and yet I won bag tag #28 due to how it played out during the four rounds.  I did start the year off with #4, but I left the club championships with #28.

What if you can't make all the rounds?  How are you going to do bag tags?  I'm suppose to coach a game at 9am, but would love to participate in this.

It was a 48.  Couldn't quite get the hang of putting with a buzzz though.

I have a soccer game to coach at 12:00pm in Lee's Summit, which puts me out from 11:00 - 2pm.  Is there anyway, I can participate in one round, either before or after?  I wouldn't want to let me team down.

Hmmm, left fairway tree. Perfect left handed hyzer shot .... what were the scores for last night?
I'm looking at you, LEFTIES!

Horrible.  A good lefty wouldn't need to take out the tree to birdie that hole.  It's already easy enough for us.   Probably a righty who can't control his anny. 

Keep your ears open.  I'm sure somebody will be out bragging about it.

General Banter / Re: Ratings?
« on: August 16, 2013, 08:32:41 am »
Those events weren't included in this rating update (MAC and Run for Roses).  There is a lag.  "PDGA Player Ratings Updated: August 13, 2013
The latest PDGA Player ratings were published on 8/13/2013 and include events reported by the 7/23 submission deadline." 
  If you look at your events, then you can see which rounds were included.  Don't worry, they will be included next month. 

My rating went up 8 points.  980 baby!

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Re: 8-2-13 Dubs

I verified with Scott, course is not closed.  I would try my best not to interupt the wedding. 

Now here are my suggestions.  I'm assuming that the baskets haven't been moved.  If #3 is still in short position, Bring another basket and place it near the long position of #3, maybe a little longer and to the left to bring the OB road into play.  And tee off to the left of #3 basket and further towards hedges.  You could bring another basket and add your 7A hole that we were talking about the other day.  You could also, adjust the tee for #10 and go further up coneflower and tee off from the road to the #10's basket.  You might want to confirm with the groom where she wants to walk from so that you can avoid it.  Then you go up to running trail (behind #11's tee box) and tee off towards #12.  And then play everything else as normal.  That's actually 19 holes.  You could skip both 10 and 11 altogether and just go to running trail and play to 12.  Lots of options.   Another idea is to play 1 tee to practice basket, and then tee off of the running trail towards regular #1 basket.

Agreed!  Just teasing, having some fun.  I am really pleased that somebody knew about the "Thigh Curl Contest" reference.  I posted that video and go zero responses.  I laughed so hard at that bit that I just had to share.  Jordan, my wheels aren't so good either.  And I'm not sure which leg I would consider to be my "good" leg.  Sucks to get old, but disc golf is sure fun.

You are right.  We tied.  Still first though.  Not the point I was trying to make.   Thigh curl contest it is!  Followed by a one-legged ass kicking contest.  Jordan can even use his good leg.

I'm fairly new to Disk Golf and I want to join a local league, having said that I'm busy weekday evenings and was looking to get experience and meet new people. I'm looking at Legasy Friday nights and was wondering the details about it. I hear its doubles (not really clear on how that works) and I was curious how a novice player like myself would fair in a non rec league. I would love to play players better than me but at the same time I don't wanna get killed out there. Any details would be appreciated...thanks for your time!

Both Legacy (on fri) and Pleasant Hill (sun) leagues are random draw doubles.  Meaning you will draw for a partner (at least once, right Kelly  ;)) and then it's best shot doubles, take the best shots between you and your partner.  There will be some really strong players out there but there are several guys that are in a similar situation and new to the game and competing in leagues.  The most important thing to remember is to have fun and try not to drag your partner down.  Last time I played Legacy league, my partner and I won, but we probably used 17/18 of my putts and 16/18 of my drives.  My partner still helped us win, by either laying up so I could run it and he had 2 park jobs on some of the shorter holes.  If you want to get better, meet some new people, and have fun you need to get out there.

He is new to this cut him some slack.  He will get better.  I would suggest playoff would be better than CTP for 1st ties, make them play glow.  For 2nd or 3rd places, probably ok.

Doubles format is a lot of fun but unfortunately harder to get organized than singles.  And redraws are common.

Wow, that sounds like a mess.  I'm glad it wasn't me.  Glad you had fun though.  Sorry I couldn't make it to add to the drama.

I have a generator, but I havent used in a while.  I will try to get it running and bring it.  I suppose any trimmers, hand, battery or gas, would work too.  Didn't mean to discriminate against other trimmers.

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Legacy workday 7/21
« on: July 18, 2013, 02:57:16 pm »
Come out this Sunday 7/21 at 4pm for a workday at Legacy Park.  Current approved projects include replacement of basket chains, trash pick up, trimming of weeds between #15 and #16, cutting thorns on trees on #1, #2, #4 and #16. 

If you've got weedeaters, electric trimmers, or machetes bring them out.  I've got the rest of the tools needed covered.  Club is providing some refreshments and there will be other surprises (shhh! for those that know) for those helping out. 

Once were done with the above list, we will take suggestions for other course improvements to get approved by LSPR.  We've initiated talks of additional pin locations at #9, #10, #12, #14, #16, additional mowing, and poison ivy treatment.
