FYI, as Perry was sitting next to me, watching the top 4 Open cards go off, before his final later tee time, I spent a few mins talking to Feldman about YOU AND Perry's, strengths and weakness, DICK!!! :~)

 Now go practice not leaving putts short!!

Appreciate the props.

I think I can I think I can....

I can't help it that I coach/train your east side team..............AND, I will continue to do so...!

 Family with siblings living in the dirty room next door...  ;D

Says the man who's been "working with Matt" - courtesy of Dave Feldberg's video.  Seems like Matt should be doing the teaching...He did post a better score on the weekend  :o

#1-Long right is correct.....
#3-There is only one placement, up along the bluff
#6-There are 2 placements, left and right along the tunnel, it is in the right along the tunnel

As for the other items.....Well sometimes you have to go through trash to find beauty.  We can't all just pander to the land of the elitist.  Someone had to make a place to play for the working class.  How many good stories have started with did you see that in Olaythu?  Guess what I saw in PC?

Point being, it takes a special place to build quality, and being on one of the oldest parks in the city gives us some rights that you don't have down there in JoCo land, where you use the "trash" a former golf course to create a disc golf course....yeah that's creative....next you will be trying to hold your West Side Team event on a Missouri course or something.....(sorry to drag you in on the rest of your side's comments Tracy, I know it wasn't you.....but yep, i Had to go there....)

No for the rest of you that realize that there is one team with a winning record on this here battle....you may realize that only the EAST SIDE, can claim, and always claim that we are the original champs......

It hurts, I know it does, but your fancy malls and such over there in Totoville should be able to find remedies for the injuries....for your games....hmmmmmm...not so much, but for your injuries, yeah they sell Prep H, go an getya sum!
 :-* 8) ;D :)

First of all - this is a disc golf forum and discussion should be about disc golf.  Let's leave the school districts, college hoops, and average income out of it...just sayin'.

I think we should introduce some other items into this East/West challenge.  Maybe...a distance competition perhaps?  I'm sure you'll find another W in the East Side column there...

Let me beat you to the punch before you introduce a putting challenge.  Yes, that'll put a W in the West Side column I'm sure.  However, correct my 2nd grade math, but I believe that still leaves the score at 2-1 in favor of the East Side.   :P

Joe put one off the top of the basket on hole 10...only to kick OB. He saved the circle three of course. Shot of the night!

What are the courses like?

Coop, I won't be able to give a "Loomis-esque" response, but I'll do my best.  There's two courses at this location.  They have a lot of options because the courses are side by side.  They've even put together a "championship" course that combines holes from two courses into one monster layout.  I doubt that will be used for the tournament, but a cool thought nonetheless. 

The original course has two tee pads for most holes and has quite the variety of shots.  There's open shots, wooded shots, uphill shots and downhill shots.  There's a few bomber holes, but for the most part the pins are reachable with a good drive.  There's definitely a line to be hit on most holes given the slope of the hills, trees and some well thought out basket placement.  Now's the time to score low out there because in the summer months, the wood holes get knarly.  Innova discatchers here.

The second course was just put in last year or the year before.  It has Monkeytrap baskets just like that of Joplin and several southern Missouri courses.  Hint: hit low right!  The course starts out in the woods and gradually works its way out...only to go back into the woods again later on.  A good variety of shots here as well.  This one isn't for the faint of heart.  There are some bombers.  One hole is probably a good 600' uphill and the basket is on somewhat of a peninsula.  If your upshot ends 30' to the left of the basket, it is sailing about a 150' downhill into a skatepark.  Another hole is woodsy and long and right next to a lake.  A bad kick will put you in the water so be careful on that one. 

All in all I would just say there is a WIDE variety of holes here.  Pretty much anything under the sun.  I'd really consider playing this tournament.  I know they had a few baskets that had been vandalized a few months back, but surely it'll be corrected prior to the tourney.  Enjoy.

Can't speak to the layout-however believe they only have one pin location for each hole.

Both courses have tee pads.

I wish I was headed to Emporia or Augusta right now.  Instead, I am stuck in a cubicle in Overland Park.  Horrible >:(

Good luck to everyone playing in the GBO!

Ditto Vince. Ditto. Legacy League on Friday?! Haha

I am still trying to figure this all out. I am slowly creeping up to a year playing, if you count winter time where I did not throw a disc. I usually look where I want to throw it, say a silent prayer and throw. Does it work? Heck no! I try to watch the vets throwing and I tend to ask a lot of questions, which can probably get annoying. I need to find this Church of the Flying Disc God!

Something I think helps develop your throwing is to play catch. Another thing that will improve your game fast is to take all your discs and go throw them out in an open filed such as a soccer field or baseball field. Playing rounds doesn;t give you enough reps to learn how to make the discs go where you want them to.

This. But doing the field thing takes dedication-- let's face it, that's booooring compared to playing an actual round --but perhaps that dedication makes the difference between an average player and an exceptional one.

it does take dedication. I live on 14 acres but I would be lying if I said I go out and play catch with myself. I keep telling myself I need too, but do I? Heck No...I try to play same courses, so I get repetition and I was seeing my score slowly drop last year. Then Winter hit...now I feel like I am almost back to square one.

I even bought one of those DVDs with Ken Climo and some other dude in it, when I purchased some discs online. It's given me a few pointers but I need to work on my drives. I thought I was doing awesome getting 350-400 feet on drives until I played with a guy who was almost doubling that...it was an ego crusher.

Doubling a 400' drive? What kind of downhill course are you playing my friend?!

I just changed putters again to the MERCY (as well as a bunch of other plastic) and then played the Monkey Island... I shot an 868 rated round... 8... 6.... 8. Came in DFL. I have technique and confidence, but not so much with the new plastic. Yet.

I have the GBO this weekend and I have to figure out what I am going to do; stick with familiar plastic or go with the new stuff.

Sounds like Tiger with Nike :)

Believe you mean Rory
