Wow, if disc golf ever gets covered by ESPN or something else like it I think Crazy has got a job locked up.

Crazy is a "pro" at announcing, one of the many talents that man has.  There is a reason that he has MC'd some of the biggest events that Kansas City has ever seen.  We are blessed that he has the "disc golf bug" we can only hope that he helps make a difference in our sport in every way that he can.

Cliff Drive / Re: March pin settings

I remember playing a tournament (it was probably 2 years ago, I believe) where Hole #15 had a basket under that tree on the right.

I remember it was tricky getting the drive to land somewhere where the layup was easy, as that tree's branches and leaves offered a low ceiling. I guess I always thought there was a short right pin placement there, but it must have been a traveling basket for that tournament. It was fun and difficult nonetheless.

I have put a temp pin there a few times Angie.  That will probably be one of the alternate placements for the hole.

Disc Golf Topics for Women / Women's Night Out

So.....I see where the two women that seem to haev some of the most fun playing, can't give up the wonderful WW on Thursday for your own league.

I know that there used to be a Ladies Night Out "league" (no payment, if you left early, so what) on Thursday at Rosey.  What night would work for the ladies to get together and play?

I had heard that the free flowing Thursdays at Rosey were a good time for most, as they could fit it into thier schedule, and liked the fact that it was "free to play as you want", be it 5 holes, 12, or 18, it was more about getting the girls/women together to meet and enjoy disc golf.

Thought that I'd start a new thread with this info, and see if you can take it to where it needs to go!

Just saying, SIGN UP EARLY!

No to add-on temp holes.  They all SUCK typically, and its a pain in the arse to do the extra work on the TD.

Dick did his job, he advertised, he informed that it would fill up, and he has indicated it almost daily online here, I am not sure that there is much anything else that you can do from a TD standpoint, except, say, "Sorry, folks, the park's closed.  The moose out front should've told you!"

For this event, no, but there are additional fees involved if you are not a member of the PDGA, you can buy a "daily pass" at this event.  Events that are labeled with an "A-Tier" or above, (National Tour, and Major events) do require membership in advance to participate.  Since this is a C-Tier, you can pay the additional fee.

I would strongly suggest paying within the next few days though, as it will fill up before the end of the week.

COntact Dick Parker, or possibly go to Disc Golf World to pay in advance if you can't do so online.

Recreational players typically are going to have very little experience or knowledge of the rules of the game.  An internediate player is generally someone that is familiar with the aspects of the game, may have a few events that they have played, and competes with some passion to win.  Generally a Recreational player is going to play in that division only a few times, before they move into the intermediate division.

Some players decide that they should play only intermediate because they don't play often enough to develop a truly competitive game for the advanced level, or they prefer to play in a division that will inflate their ego.  There is nothing to prevent this except your ratings from the PDGA once you become a member can then indicate that you are no longer eligible to play in that division.

The basic rule of thumb in the PDGA events is that if its your first, and you are relatively new to the sport, its ok to play recreational.  If you have played a few leagues, and have a good grasp that you are typically a player that shoots +9 then intermediate is your game, advanced players typically are going to shoot +/- 2 on a par 54 course, and your open players are generally shooting -6 on a course of normal configuration (your course may vary).

For simple rules, if you played the Ice bowl (Rosedale set pretty short) and shot a 55-59 on the upper course, you are probably ready for INT, if you shot 50-54, you shold be playing advanced, under 49 Open, and anything above a 60 should be considered a recreational player if that helps
