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
« on: June 18, 2013, 11:40:14 AM »
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.

General Banter / So who you got now?
« on: May 30, 2013, 12:33:51 PM »
Thanks much to the EPIC Meltdown of the rubber meeting the ice last night...Blackhawks outscored the Red Wings 10-5 after managing just two goals in Games 2-4 -- they became the 25th team to win a series after trailing 3-1. It was the first time in franchise history Chicago has made such a comeback.

How fitting it kicks Detroit out of the West and sends home to worry about the disc golf housing project downtown.

You know who I am riding the rest of the way, so who you got?

Cliff Drive / Work to be done at cliff-if you have the time....
« on: May 28, 2013, 03:09:22 PM »
Folks,

A lot of love has been going on out at Cliff Drive, and though I know in the future we may be losing holes 7-8-9 as they stand today, we haven't lost them yet, and I have been told that they want to really work with us to try to remain to have them in play. 

What that may mean though is that the fairway on #8 will get TIGHTER, and Tree lined, can you say tough SOB!  but rest assured even with the possibility of having them not vanish, I plan to expand the course.  Ideally if this happens making it a 24 hole course.  I think that is a perfect number for disc golf personally.  Time will tell. 

In the mean time, Beckett has been carving out the new holes with intensity not matched in years out there.  Johnny Harrison attacked holes #5 & #6 to clean them up.

I finished cleaning up #4, and then got #8 long green taken care of last night.

What remains to be done in the annual "summer clean/Spring Clean of Cliff" is the hillside on #6 by the downed tree.  The green on #7 middle, and then the trail from #7 up to the stage to the cliff.  I will try to get out there and work some on it this week, probably Friday so that it looks a little better for the East Championships, but if you have time and a mower or weed whacker, anything anyone does will be appreciated.

Thanks for the love on the course this month out there, it is looking good!

General Banter / Sponsors?
« on: May 22, 2013, 10:36:03 AM »
Anyone looking to sponsor the Wide Open in some way or shape?  I have a couple of folks that have given me information about sponsors for the BBQ party, what say you?  You have someone lined up that would like to get their name out there to about 300 people regionally based that like to go and spread the word about things that help make disc golf events better?
