Cool. Thanks for the responses. I'll have to play it sometime this week.

tonight, tomorrow, or Thursday, from Friday on it is pretty well booked.....You may be able to get on after the 2:00 round on Friday, should be done like 6ish.

But yeah we have to pull it off quick.

Fixed that with the re-design this year if you notice, we didn't play to #1 basket.

I would like to play the short shot at the top of the hill before crossing it on the EXEC, and skip #2, put #1 on the Big Boy Long, less walk, and I love long #1, as I do long #3, Long #6, Long #7, Long #9, Long #18

I miss a few holes for certain on this layout, but it is SOOOOO much shorter and fun throwing the shots.

Ever thought about recording the players meeting, and putting the audio online? Easier for you, and everyone involved. The most important part, however, it won't kill WW league attendance. :D

Is that why last week's results aren't posted yet?  To "make" people come out to league on Thursday instead of finding out about rule information that will be given to the biggest and most competitive event in KC this year?

Everything at Swope starts with the "clubhouse" so you are safe to head there and rest assured will be guided to the appropriate stations.

What's a CD?  Is that like an 8-Track or something? ;)

That would be "Duane Steiner" the Compact Disc Player,

He has been throwing plastic in these parts longer than most have been playing (or living for that matter).

Apparently someone bootlegged an MP3 of him in the shower, and it went viral, or did someone see something on him the shower that they thought was a virus?

I can't remember now, it sucks getting old....

Rob,

Sorry I bailed on league last night, but I had already got poked in the eye looking for a disc....it was pouring rain, and I was slipping on the tee pads, the Blackhawks were on, and I shouldn't have started.....

Needless to say though, thanks for running league out there, the course does look great, as long as we can get a few days of dry weather, that course will play fun and enjoyable for certain.

Looked great out there Doug!

Better yet.

No Lat64CAMO?  It's the KCWIDEOPEN for goodness sake.  Since the players pack may be of less subsistance compared to DD GBO, ante~ up!!!


Better yet, rather than playing disc golf tournaments for the stuff, don't. 

Instead of getting what an event organizer chooses to hand out to you, for your entry fee, go to the disc golf retailers and buy the stuff directly from them.  You'll get exactly what you want and will actually save money doing so.

So much nicer than what I would have said.......

Since the Wide Open is ran by all volunteers, doesn't have a company ran business supporting them, has been around 3x as long as the said event....and the players pack isn't filled with said companies product endorsement, but rather a collection of items that multiple disc partners are willing to help support said event......I'll try to stop.....

Shortest post in the history of Jack, when a tangent appeared imminent?

Tracy covered it nicely..... ;D

Ok, so I will admit that it is worded bad. On my last comment I tried to make it easy because I have more to worry about than one hole.. Or do I?

So here is the official rule and it will be on a temp tee sign on the hole (along with 18 because it applies here as well).

If you go OB before the Mando you will take it out where it went out of bounds. The only way to "miss" the mando would be to go right of the tree and come back in bounds. So if that happens you go to the drop zone. Once you have made it past the mando successfully and go OB you can play it where it went out of bounds. Hopefully that clears it up.

There is ONE possible way that this is still slightly confusing, let me see if I can muck it up.

You CAN miss the Mando, go OB, and come back in BOUNDS after the mando, in which case you missed Mando and got to the Drop Zone.

That is the reason there is a LINE from the Mando to the OB wall.  You are IN BOUNDS, but MISSED the MANDO, (going to the RIGHT of the MANDO is missing it) therefor go back to Drop Zone. 

That same shot hits the side of the wall and doesn't come back in bounds, you throw from the wall where it went out.  The OUTER portion of the WALL IS OB.

You skip off the road, hit the pin on the peninsula, roll OB, you back to drop zone.

So if you throw it OB....skips off the road, comes back in BOUNDS past the Mando, but is IN Bounds, you go to the Drop Zone and take a penalty. (#17)

Whew, a lot can happen on that shot huh?

As worded above correctly, you can MAKE THE MANDO, only to have it SKIP OB (#18), and you would play it from last position IN Bounds.

Missing the Mando re tee on #18, you can......Hit the tree on the right side, go OB and still have a chance to make the mando on the left, thus throwing your shot from where it was last IN BOUNDS at.  You can have the same thing happen on the LEFT Mando..... (I hit the MANDO tree on league, but stayed behind it, threw forehand, made mando, took my 3) only if the disc passes past the wrong side of the MANDO do you RE TEE (Drop Zone on #18 is RE-TEE).


Back to Back holes with some confusing possibilities, please know the ruling on them, it will save you strokes.

(corrected per "Too Tall" Guy)--Sarcasm will be missed by many but him..... :-D

Hey Scott I thought of something else that would be sweet to have at this event and possibly even keep up at the DD store. I would love it if you guys had a net and radar gun to see the speed guys can throw. With Simon Lizotte posting his MPH it makes me want to know what my mortal arm can accomplish. I think it would be something most guys would think was cool. You could even do something like at an amusement park where guys pay a few bucks and if they can guess their exact speed on their third throw they win a voucher or disc or something. I think it would be popular. Just throwing it out there!

Stokely did that here in 1999 worlds, he came out, set it up, then signed a mini with your speed....I will have to look for mine.

Marked all mandos today.  There is a line between the tree and on.  Miss8ng mando past that line is drop zone.

I can never tell who genuinely hates someone else and who is just fooling around on this forum.  :D

No one really hates anyone (wellll.....), some people don't have thick skin, sometimes I get too far into it, and otherwise we all enjoy the sport, though how we feel we help it differs to many!
