General Banter / Re: What is your favorite basket?
« on: July 06, 2013, 10:23:45 PM »
Coop, I gotta tell ya that I had two perfectly good putts last night at Legacy that didn't stick. DISCatchers. Two of those putts where you look down to pick up your mini and when you look back up you think someone picked your disc out of the basket and put it on the ground. One was dead center and came straight back out, the other went clean through the middle. Yes, I have witnesses. Yes, I understand that all baskets spit every now and again. And EVERYone has different experiences on different baskets.

Anyway, moral of the story is...from this thread alone, anytime I miss a putt on a DISCatcher, I'm gonna think of you. Haha, in fact, without even thinking twice, the first thing out of my mouth last night on that first missed putt was, "Gosh, where's Cooper when you need him?"

I also have a problem with the idea that it is up to the person putting in the course to choose what basket they want. Yes, if it is outside of a club or private land then sure, that makes sense. It doesn't here. If Jack is coordinating with the KCMO P&R to get new baskets at WW then it should be as a club representative, not as an individual. In that sense I would rather have someone who is an official within the club coordinating with them.

(Note: Before everyone jumps down my throat about that, it is an example. I don't know that that is what is happening here, but if it is it is problematic. Club courses should be cared for, maintained, and everything else with the club and the P&R.)

Person putting it in, club representative, whatever you want to call it.  I'm just referring to the individual(s) who are working with the P&R to install the course.  It's their call.  If you want it to be a "club" decision, then you need to put that petition in front of the board/club and get a motion passed that any new "club" courses be approved by the club as a whole with regards to basket selection.  As for me, I'm good with whatever basket is used.  So long as we have another course to choose from, I'm happy!  ;D

I'm not really sure what the purpose of this thread is anymore.  I don't think there is one basket that is the "best."  We all have our own favorite basket.  It IS all a matter of opinion.  There are pros and cons to each and every basket.  Mach III's don't catch well (according to some), DISCatchers are eye sores (according to some), ya de ya de ya.  I don't think there are any courses in the metro that are "outdated" so I'm content.  Replacing an entire course worth of baskets is a waste of money.  There are a ton of other things we could be doing to our courses rather than replacing baskets just because.  If a basket gets hit by a tree and needs to be replaced, that's a different story.

With regards to new courses, the decision on baskets is up to the person putting the course in and parks and rec department; end of story there.  If you want a course with the new Innova baskets - find some acreage, get it approved, and put it in.  I just don't really understand the point of this argument here.  It's the song that never ends.  It's pointless to argue equipment because there will NEVER be a time when everyone agrees.

Are there any courses anywhere near with Titans? I'd like to give them a try if it is feasible.

I'm pretty sure the underground course in STL has them

Awesome league last night!  Perfect weather and a pretty solid turnout.  Congrats to Tank for the W.  Pins were set short with ace run opportunities.  It made for some low scores and good times.  I'm so glad to be back playing leagues again.  Don't break a leg folks, it's not fun - especially with great summer temps like we're experiencing now.  Ekolk has the scores, so I'll leave that to him.  Thanks for running league man!

Don't forget - Superclass round at Swope Thursday morning at 9:00!

Thank-you all so much for the great replies.  I am leaning toward Swope as my GPS has 470 as the quickest route.  Hope to see some of you if not there but in Emporia. 

PS Every disc in my bag is green so should make for an interesting round. :)

That won't be an issue at Swope.

I'm surprised that more people don't like the chainstars.  The width appears to be wider than most baskets to catch putts that are a little off center.  The top cage is friendly to discs.  You can get them in virtually any color.  The only issue I've had with them is kicking a few putts straight back out if I hit the center pole to hard.  I guess that's just the indian though and not the arrow.  It appears that I putt a little TOO hard at times.  8)

if you're on I-70, and want shade, Wilbur Young aka blue springs is 4 minutes south of the highway on Adams Dairy Road, and play is fast as there are some very short tee pads, the course is well marked, clean, and very fun to play in under 90 minutes. cheapest gas in kc and a myriad of food options available at the exit also.

Not to mention little elevation.  However, I wouldn't throw anything in the color green....

Jack, is the course still set long?  Will you be playing the long pins?

Anybody noticed how this cancellation was done by Milenorthkmco but the original posting was done by MileNorthKCMO.

What up?

I was in the shop this past weekend and the event is indeed cancelled.  I'm not sure why another user name was created, but the store owner did tell me the event was cancelled. 

The rest of the conversation left me with a sour taste; I probably won't be back...and I'm going to leave it at that.

Apologies, I must have overlooked the scores being posted.  I'm usually pretty up-to-date on the league postings and have been watching everything since I broke my leg to see who all has been playing and where.  I wasn't trying to "blast" anyone, nor am I trying to oust any league directors.  I'm just seeing what can be done to increase participation in these leagues.  What is it going to take to get our turnouts to match that of WW, PC, etc.  There are clearly leagues that kill it in terms of participation.  Some of that has to do with the course itself, but a lot of it has to do with other factors.  Legacy and Young are both a long haul from downtown, so I think that is the biggest issue here.

Anyway, I think that Legacy on Friday nights is a challenge for a lot of people.  It's just a tough sell as it is the beginning of the weekend.  Maybe the alternating league was a bad idea if turnouts are as good as deadhead84 claims they are.  My bad, just trying to spur some DISCussion.  I love playing Legacy (unlike most people), and wish we could make it a popular course in KC.  Sure, some holes are repetitive, but it's not a gimme course and for whatever reason that is engrained in everyone's mind far as I can tell.  For those who haven't taken a good look around out there, there is A LOT of good land (even a picturesque waterfall) and if we can get some people out to build this course's reputation, maybe more things will happen.  Eric is certainly getting the ball rolling with LSPR, I just want to keep it rolling and turn BOTH of these leagues into something big.

How much does it cost to plant a few new trees?  I know that hole is still sloped to add a little difficulty, but those trees MADE that hole tough.
