UTZ be very careful what you say to me and about me.  I'm don't joke around.  I'm not Nalier where I laugh it off...   So if you really got something to say to me I'm real easy to find.

^^^^  this is too serious, close to be banned because of threatening context in my mind....That there is no place for.
There is NO where I threatened anyone.  SO if you want to band me do so.  I really don't care.

I don't plan on Banding you and I don't have that power, but your statement clearly lacking any emoticons comes across as a threatening tone dude, minus all the misuse of words repeatedly as well... I'm not jokester where I tiped it of either

It is up to the TD on how they choose to conduct their players meeting.  I have played in events (Wulbucker-sorry for spelling) in Council Bluffs who starts his players meeting with a prayer.  He isn't alone.

There are MANY, and I mean MANY that start it off with the Star Spangled Banner (Twisted does it I think before EVERY event that Joe runs).

Pledge allegiance I believe was done at GBO or Worlds in the cinema.

Right wrong or indifferent, RESPECT the people that have beliefs different than yours.  If a TD wants to start it off as their beliefs feel entitled to, by all Freaking means, then let them.  They gave HOURS and HOURS and Weeks of time for your sorry excuse to complain about their right to do as they see fit at an event they chose to run for you.

Get off it folks, this is a silly thread.  Tolerate, respect, and if you must ignore, but be polite when the people running events do something you don't like......like not having a players party so everyone can eat.....it may not be the religion objection you have....people asking, or demanding people to move in order to allow fair competition to happen.....

Lets not throw rocks in our cardboard houses we live in.  Let's be better than the rest of society and truly engage and enjoy the people that share this passion of our sport even if it is slightly different in how you want to deliver it.....

Pleasant Hill tonight. Sign up at 5:40, tee off at 6. Bring your own water, cut back on the beer. I will have a water cooler as well.

Kick Ass ROB!

Excellent!

extra holes are typically not well thought out and defeat the flow.  On top of hurting ratings, it shows poor planning on the players part.

You want in=sign up early.....

General Banter / Re: Tell us about the weird disc in your bag!
« on: July 10, 2015, 08:03:32 am »
I have what is called original frisbee disc. It's a putter. 171 grams. Made in Mexico in 2003 by Whamo Inc. It's got these ridges on the top where you would put your thumb during a putt. Really stiff. Never seen another like it. Found at the bottom of the hill on hole 5 down under. No name or number. I think someone might have chucked it down there on purpose.

86 mold is what that is called

As a league director, I spend 8 to 10 hours a week preparing courses, moving baskets, getting cards ready, reporting results, doing paperwork and so on.  Actually when including the round it is probably more than that.  I bust my tail to get from work to the course just so I have time to sign people up and put cards together and so on.  I rarely have time to even take a practice throw.  The added time it would take to feed somewhere between 10 and 40 people ( I have no idea how many will show up) is just not doable.  Utz and Van have more folks than I do so I know it would be impossible for them too.  It is hard enough to get league directors and keep them.  Adding another task would just be a killer (not to mention the cost and so on).

Many don't realize the time commitment it takes Mike.  I for appreciate you and ALL the League directors of their giving ways.  I have for years!

Emporia and KC are Dynamic Discs country. I'm guessing nobody wants to upset our Trilogy overlords.  ;D 

I'd say Innova has a pretty strong staple in the area as well......

Hence the Roc Vs. Buzzz

woo to the WHOOOOO!  I made the cut!

Seriously though Utz, this is good stuff here.  I appreciate it for things other than scoring, accountability, foot traffic counts, a lot of information is gleaned from this, and it makes lives easier.

Thanks!

I would wait until the round is over, and scores and payouts have been posted. That way no one sees it coming.


 :-X

Some of us are aware of this tactic by you sir, and it is incorrect as well.......You find a caddy yet?  (too soon?  :-p)

You can also bring it up during the players meeting. To me, that is the warning. Especially for a repeat and purposeful offender. You've been warned, stroke them immediately.

You can't do ^^^^^ that, as far as strokes go, but not a bad idea to mention at the meeting, to get clarifications.

everyone gets a "courtesy warning", after the first official "warning" each offense (regardless of what one it is) would be considered a stroke and must be notated on the scorecard accordingly.

Cliff Drive / Re: Meandering Mondays to Cliff Drive today, July 6

If the Rain comes.....I may suggest playing an alternate format....
1 to the practice
2-from the road to #1
3-from road to #11 long
4-#12
5-#13
6-#14
7-#15
8-#16
9-#17
10-#18
11-From Road to #18 long (Blue Pin)
12-#11 short

This would only be a 12 hole league, but I think that it is in the options....If you needed to add holes to make 18.....
#2
#3
#7
#8
#9
#10

This would minimize the amount of "muddy terrain" you would be walking on, and risk aversion to injury by avoiding 4, 5, 6 climbs up and down....

Food for thought

It happens in all divisions, and people get snippy about it.  There is an unwritten rule that states "don't call someone on the faults" in disc golf.  That makes it tough to legitimize our sport.  Not only should you call yourself out, but you should be calling others and asking for ruels advice as you play.

I am guilty as others...but then I don't play "pro" for yet another reason in the many of "1000 reasons why Jack Lowe is still playing AM"
