^^^Like this is a thread the ones above don't forget the Lion's Den Open XII is Saturday. ;D

Marshall is good as well, but that's if you really want competitive play instead of a fun time.  We battle every year with someone that decides to hold a "sanctioned" event against the Leo's Roar....don't they know we are King of the Jungle? ??? ::) :o

I will be out there by new hole #1 tonight about 6ish removing the debris in the gulley if anyone wants to come lend a hand it would be appreciated.  Shouldn't be more than an hour of work, it gets less with more people!

We will also be out there Friday afternoon working on final touches.

Thanks all!

wow.....just wow, what a great night for some golf.  The weather was gorgeous, the course was in pretty good shape minus a few spots, we had a decent crowd on hand to enjoy the night.  It made for a fun night for most of the folks playing.  There were about 20 casuals playing as well throughout the evening and that made for a good mix of golf.  The sunset was BEAUTIFUL, and then the MOON RISE on the other end, just a fantastic night.

We elected to play holes in between the LDO format, which means that we played #8 to the hangar, and #9 as well, they won't be in play on the LDO, but they were last night. Some people on my card had a few issues with the Hangar for certain.....
Here are the results though!
Scott Herring-53=$12
Josh Wiedenfeld-58=$9
Jose Ossa-60
Derrick Holt-60
Zeke Henry-60
Jack Lowe-62
Mike Murphy-64

Bill Shinoski-59=$11 KcKash
Matt Dixon-61=$8 KcKash
TJ Barnes-68=$7 KcKash (I owe you)
Jason Allen-70
Ryan Westa-70
Nate Zier-83
Ben Crosby-Prior Committments

No Ace was hit, so it moves to $526, we did have one go off the top of the basket.  Next week, we will play an 18 hole configuration not 20 that will include some new holes, unsure which, but the course will still be in the LDO configuration for the most part.  Should be a good time!

The new holes in the woods will need some more cleanup to do the "long placement" and we need to get out the downed trees in the "gulley".  I am going to try to get out there tonight to make that happen before the rain.  I think that though slightly treacherous,  I can make it work for the LDO with minimal impact or fear initially.

Will be posted in a minute...

There are SOOOOOO many people that I can thank that this list shames me to even post it.

That being said, there is still some work to do out there, and we will be tidying it up to make sure that you enjoy a great disc golf experience, and overall enjoyment to the park that so many long for!



Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive League Night 8/11/14
« on: August 11, 2014, 10:35:11 AM »
We will be playing league at Cliff Drive tonight.

I am hopeful that we will be playing with the new holes and the complete Lion's Den Open version.  I will bring maps, but here it is in a nutshell.
1-playing Hole #1 to the practice basket
2-playing fro the road to the original long #1 basket
3-playing the LONG hole NEW #1 placement, yes LONG not short as we did 2 weeks ago, but LONG, it is pretty darn cool.
4-playing from the short placement of the new #1 last time as the teeing area for the new #2 for the time being to the new #2 pin on the hillside
5-playing original #2 (short)
6-playing original #3 only
7-playing #4 to the right (short)
8-playing #5 (short)
9-playing #6 (long right)
then go to #10 original-yeah sorry about the walk, we can discuss to see if we want to play 20 holes, and add #8 hangar and #9-group decision.....

10-playing #10 to the right shorter (middle placement)
11-tee from road behind first tree on #18 to practice basket (Blue)
12-#11 Short to practice basket
13-play from road behind tree on #11 to #11 long pin (ala Sully placement)
15-#13  Short or middle (I haven't decided yet on this one, leaning towards middle...
16-#15 Under the tree
17-#16 long
18-Tee from #17 pad to long #18 basket

If the new holes are "too muddy" to play we will play as described above using #8 to the hangar and #9 for the round tonight.

I am hoping to swing by and get everything moved before the round (moving #13 to the middle and #18 to the top if you have keys....) and then planting with temp the new pins on #1 and #2.

The short track and lots o'aces can be found and started tonight at Cliff.

Yes, and the plan is to use the new holes as well.  Posting something about it here in a few

...and always carry a rulebook with you, or download it on your phone (and don't forget to read and understand it). This won't be the only time you are confronted with uncertainty on the course from a TD or another player.

ugh.....resisting..... :-X

So about the Lion's Den Open Prep day tomorrow, I am going out, are you?

You decide if you want to be a PRO in our sport or not.  You can always play pro, you have to pay more, you can win cash, but once you accept it, you become PRO.  You then have to petition the PDGA to go back to Am Status within the guidelines (yours truly did just that) if you elect to do so.

The bottom line, it is a personal decision to make.  The rules though based on ratings and how you can play are quite specific.  As long as Loomis isn't changing them at the conversation point you can be rest assured that people will follow the guidelines.  There are other guidelines as well which didn't happen in the event this time.  You can actually have people as PRO's with ratings above the 970 that would have still been eligible to play based on the rating they had when they signed up, or the cut off date.  The most recent ratings may have elevated them past that, but they would still be eligible for the event.  That would have REALLY ruffled some feathers huh? :o

About this Lion's Den you speak of.....

By that logic Utz, I have been playing regularly since the early 80's.......really think I am a "pro"

Same day as the Tree Love Classic at Cliff...too bad...

Claring made me look at my rating a coupe of years ago when I was classified as a PRO, I made the cut, but he was watching.

Chris is a stand up guy through and through.  Did nothing wrong.  Played well!

Cliff Drive / Re: Work day Saturday August 8&9 at Cliff Drive
« on: August 07, 2014, 10:45:41 AM »
Cool...mostly this weekend will be focused on what is now 7-8-9, we want to clear out as much as we can, and even go as high as we can on the hillside.

I will have a few of us work on the new portion, but I think that I have it covered, so the next big wave is really driving and clearing out the cliff, the hill, the stage, and ready for the mini and dodgebee area.

This also though will enable us to start to look at the use of the "new" holes by stage where we will be teeing off and going to long #8 and #9 pins.
