General Banter / Re: Ratings?

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!

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.

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.

I have the charcoal bag available.  If anyone is interested, send me a PM with an offer and if you would like to see a picture of it, I can send it to you.

Got my zephyr and I'm ready to go.  Btw, i'm bringing bag tag #6.  Come get you some. 


2) Competitive rounds - Tags are up for play, PDGA rules apply.  This is what I would say is for league, money, pride/bragging rights etc...

Have you played many leagues?  Your interpretation isn't the same as the majority of those that attend KCFDC leagues.  Maybe except the Jack's NE KCMO PDGA league, which should be since it's a rated round.  Even rounds with side bets or other money in play that I've played, all PDGA rules don't apply.  It's up to the group majority to decide whatever rules you play by.  What I'm saying is you can decide whatever rules you want and convince your friends to go along with, but I thought your question was to ask the KC community what we think.  I think your interpretation of a competitive round is not what the majority think.     

The short answer for your question, is no for casual rounds even for bag tags not all PDGA rules should be enforced.  You can if you want, but I don't thinks it necessary or fun.  For casual rounds, most that I play with have a more casual stance on rules too.  Marking with a mini or leaving the disc is less strict.  If someone flips their disc instead or if it's a gimme and don't mark their disc at all, I don't worry about it.  OB is always OB, but you must decide what is and isn't before the round is started or at least the hole has been played.  A group of friends playing together should always be courteous, but I don't think it's appropriate to call for strokes for courtesy violations.  If it bothers you if one of your friends plays out of turn or some other courtesy violation, say something to them and if they don't stop, don't continue to play with them.   What if I decide to drink a beer during a round?  That's a violation of PDGA rules.  If you and I were playing a casual round (or league round for that matter) and you tell me you are going to stroke me for drinking a beer, guess what I'm not going to want to play with you.  I've played rounds were bag tags were in play and we all threw extra shots.  Either trying new discs, different lines, or mad at  missed putt.  The first shot is the one that counts, the rest are just for fun, which is the point.   I usually ask first though. 

If I'm playing for bag tags, these are the rules I normally play by.  Define OB/Mandos (with additional strokes in play), no mulligans (first shot counts), correct stance (no stepping to the side or around a tree to get a better lie, you play it where it's suppose to be played), and for lost discs (strokes added, but don't limit looking to 3 minutes.  I will help a friend look for a lost disc until he decides we can't find it).  There's probably something else I am missing, but those are generally the rules we go by.  But any of those can be decided by a group vote.  Remember this all for fun.  Go out and have some.

The word on the street is that they had a run of DISCatcher Pro's that did not have galvanized chains or not enough coating. That has been fixed as far as anyone knows and have replaced any chains that were rusted when contacted.

Yep, I have all of the replacement chains for Legacy due to this issue.  We will be replacing them shortly.

With three small kids and with the older two doing sports, I have a hard time making any league regularly.   It doesn't matter whether it's on Wed or Friday.  As for league attendance, consistency is the key.  For Legacy league, we've had a run of consistently bad weather, which got people out of the habit of going to it.  I know there were a few evenings that I would have went, but it was raining.   I don't really know about Blue Springs and why it's not well attended.  Pleasant Hill league attendance has suffered as well.   I attempted earlier this spring to start posting scores, who showed up, etc. but I don't think it mattered much.  Attendance was still meager.
