Water Works / September 21-Work Day
« on: August 06, 2013, 04:48:20 PM »
The Briar Cliff Neighborhood Association is tentatively planning a work day from 9-1, I would love to see a bunch of disc golfer out there to over shadow the folks that they have.

Please plan on this and I will get confirmation from them in the next few days, they were verifying the date at their board meeting tonight.

This group is spearheading a lot of energy in the park, and we want to show them that we are the force there, that we are the stewards of the park, and that we claim the park as one of our most sacred places to play.

Please plan on attending and helping out if you can accordingly.  I believe that this is Shunga Weekend, so I may be out myself, but would ask that if you can help, you do so and bring a friend for the morning as a sign of solidarity towards the betterment of the park!

They plan on removing dead branches, picking up trash, removal of dead limbs, etc.....

Thanks,

Jack

Blue Valley / 8/5/13 league night @ Blue Valley
« on: August 05, 2013, 08:32:05 AM »
I will be there to get it started, but I have a community meeting that I must attend tonight at 6:30 for some matters regarding some recent grants that I wrote in the area.

So league will be on, and I will leave the prize $$ with someone there to payout at the end of the night.

Ace fund moves with this league so it is at $405 heading into tonight.  I unfortunately did NOT have a chance to get out there on the wet turf and move baskets yesterday.

Cliff Drive / League 7/29????
« on: July 31, 2013, 12:27:54 PM »
Since I was in Southern Mississippi instead of Houston I have no way of telling if league happened out there on Monday or not.  The crickets chirping in here made me wonder though.

Next week we will be at Blue Valley playing the last "first Monday" of the season (September Holiday=no league & October=leagues done for me)

I will try to see what is out there to move some of the pins around, but we will be playing from the "long Course" though it will probably be in a few shorter locations....thinking out loud here...#1.....#3......#6......#8......#9(middle).......#18 I will probably move to their shorter placements.

Someone drove their other car in today to work and left the worksheet in the other vehicle.

I know that Eric Kuitunen from Minnesota came in and shot the hot round of 51, stepping over CD who had a solid 52, Eric's sole blemish was a 5 on the island #17.  Jose came in third with a 57, I shot a 58, as did George Rousis, Beckett a 59, I think that Melrose shot a 61, Kelly Warren shot a 63, Edwin a 68, and Tom Jones a 69 after coming back to disc golf after 10 yrs.  His "newest" plastic in the bag was a couple of Blizzard discs he bought last week, otherwise he had this thing called a Champion Edition Firebird in his bag as his latest disc....Had some trouble over powering the blizzard, but I think that he is going to be around again for awhile now!

Ryan Keck shot a solid 57 in the Adv men and Bill Shinoski wasn't able to beat that on the night, so Ryan took home top honors in that division for the night.

Once I get the information accurately from the element, then I will upload this week and last week's results for the ratings.

It was a good night to be out golfing!  I hope you made it out, the rest of the week looks to be a hot one!

I will update last weeks scores tomorrow after we play again tonight at Cliff Drive. 

Thanks Jose for running league.  I should be there by 5:30 and we want to start quickly to play it through.  I will see if I can get back #14 and #16 baskets.

You know you want the results in from the league last night.  It was an absolutely wonderful evening to play disc golf.  If you didn't come out to play on the big course, I hope you got out to play somewhere.  It isn't often that you can sit there and think, its July 1, and I am not feeling like I am in a furnace with the heat.  Slight wind out of the N-NW, made for some wonderful breezes to elevate the disc just so slightly.

We only had a couple of handfuls out there but the weather was just beautiful.  The one issue that transpired was that the BEST score of the night came from that Am Field.
Pros-
CD-70=$10 (He shot 39 on the Front 9 and a 31 on the Back, he learned to "step down" on the back nine....)
Lee Killian-71=$2 (he left before he could get the money, and it back to where it came from the Tree Fund)
Scott Mellrose-72=Really, I didn't shoot under 70?  I need to be better at math
Jack Lowe-73-Yep, 70-71-72-73 bottom of the pack in the open field tonight......

Then there were the Am's
Ryan Keck-69=$9KcKash-Can I change my division now that I know what I shot, what do you think the rating will be?
Rhys Kruger-78=$7KcKash-No this isn't for me, Scott beat me clearly, whats that, You didn't play Am, ok then...
Thomas Davis-79=Man this course is LONG, who sent me out here to do this?
Jason Gillow-89=I know, I know, I should be playing better but damnit Jack when are you going to remember my name?

With a few more in the Ace Fund, it goes up to $379 next week.  As I will be in Emporia for the Am Worlds, if someone else wants to step up and run league, I wouldn't be opposed to allowing them to do so.  It should be back at Cliff, and there is a solid mix of short/long right now out there.  Should be good playing!

Thanks for reading!

Cliff Drive / Mighty Mo Prep work on the course
« on: June 19, 2013, 01:42:39 PM »
If you should feel so inclined by reading this.....
Mowing #2-3-4-5-6 fairways could use it with all the rain.
7 the hillside by the SHORTER PIN IN THE WOODS could use some cleaning up
8-off the pad area clean up, around the stage, and around the pin mowing
10-off the west side of the long placement by #1 pad could use some clearing up.

Really about it.  I am going to try to get out there probably tomorrow and friday night to do some of the work, but if you have time to do it, and would like to help, great.  Everything we do from here on out helps towards getting things ready for the Lions Den XI.

Thanks,

Jack

Cliff Drive / League 6/17/13

Cliff Drive-Home of the Mighty Mo this upcoming weekend had a league night with a host of talent from all over the world.  On this wonderful night at the course, with it looking in spectacular during this league night, a wonderful group of individuals gathered for a night of golf.  With only 1 person at the basket at 5:50pm......league looked to be lost, but alas arriving promptly to ensure that no one was left behind on the night, Jack arrives in quick fashion to find Derek putting on 18.  Off he goes to grab another player from Australia no less to join to ensure league success happens.  Upon getting Rhys for league, and pulling up, getting out of the car, but what approached, but a tiny white car with plates of wheat, no not under duress, but rather Peter Buress had come to join in this game as well.

Off they went throwing into the trees, and clamoring so but after nine it oh so close, then a quick strike of 2 ob's on 12 and 13, Peter looked strong to make the lead.  Then as though the gods stroke down, the dumbest hole in the universe (hole#16 for those of you not in the know) found a way to eat that disc and allow a 5 to subside, not to be left in the cold, hole #17 showed it could play to as a 6 was to be found on little peter's shoe.

All along the top of the hill, Peter threw and threw again, but still couldn't get to the tree, he took a 3 and as it was, the night was push, and the league was squashed.

Peter-61
Jack-61
Rhys-62
Derek-63

Baskets moved to Mighty Mo position.

Final tabs will be next week on the standings for the initial league of the PDGA league.

We had 23 people start, and 20 finish as the MONSTER known as Big Blue swallowed a few souls out there.  Last look at 9:40 had Ron sending out a rescue party for this buddy Markus who refused to give in to the course when it attempted to eat one of his plastic pieces.

Weather was great, mowers were active, sun was shining, overall a pretty good night for golf.  I cam out in time to get a little help with Swope Gold signage, and place it and then make it back in time to finish up on the league night, and things appeared to be as good as they can be heading into one of the busiest weeks of the year for the course.  If you want to enjoy the park in all its glory, this is the week to do so.  It is looking just fabulous darling, absolutely fabulous!

Enough of the rambles, you are here to read the scores right?  Well the Blackhawks after losing game 3 in LA took the final two games to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in the last 4 seasons.  Boston whom many predicted would be flat against the high powered Oofense of the Pens took it to them in great fashion and the table is set where an Indian will be chasing a bear on Ice in June for a chance to drink from a silver chalice.  In other news the corruption known as collusion Heat are tied to the team defined by consistency.  THis person is hoping for another repeat of a Texas team winning in a sport that this one is not so fond of....

Alas already-
Open-
Jose Ossa-64=$12
Shanan Carson-65=$9
Dick Parker-68=$2
Steve Timmisch-68=$2
Sean Duggins-68=$2
Matt Crowe-71
John Thomas-71
Zeke-73
Edwin Hart-84

Masters-
Duane Steinholder-68=$8
DANGER-71=$4
Ted Keith-76=$3
Paul Stewart-98
Markus Roberts-999

Advanced-
Tyler Matoon-75=$10 KcKash
Ryan Keck-75=$10 KcKash
Tony Burnett-76=$8 KcKash
Chris Buckley-77=$4 KcKash
Jason Gillow-82
Matt Hicks-85
Rob Martin-90
Ryan"you know it, and you knew it would happen" Westa-999
Michael Keizer-999

Lots of people opted out of the ace fund last night, so I will update that a little later.

Next week back at Cliff Drive.

Reminder, we will be playing the Blue Valley Long on Monday the 10th.

If you haven't already committed to helping a local course this weekend, we will be doing a little work at Blue Valley on Saturday morning.  Mowers and weed whackers would be the optimal usage, I have a saw, so we should be ok.  If you have a pole saw though, wouldn't hurt.

Thanks,

Jack

I am thinking of running an additional session for another 10 weeks of the PDGA league out here in the NE on Monday nights.  This would go through to the end of August I think, and then in September we would just run it as a standard league.  I am curious to know what say you.
