Wasn't so stoked about not being able to turn in my scorecard and not being able to play the second round. I think next year I'm just going to pay and get my disc, and skip playing.

I agree, we haven't played the second round the last few years, people are still on the course at 3pm

Maybe we need to go to two courses next year?
Just saying.....

We have 2 courses, Down Under and up top.....this is a "competition LIGHT"  event, heavy on the fun of the Ice Bowl, and disc golf.  If you really can't stand your group for the entire 3-4 hour round, then you might want to reconsider who you play disc golf with......

Had a great time, met some new people, and enjoyed it all!

Even though my chili didn't win! >:(

College course in OTTUMWA was PULLED last summer, I am not sure if it is back in the ground or not.

They had litter and then someone started a fire in the middle of a fairway I had heard...

I'll look into it, but I am pretty sure its gone.

Ottumwa has 2 courses still, and there is/was to be a new course in the area between Osky and ottumwa.

I'll see what I can find out about those, but those courses really are out of the way on a trip to Chgo regardless.

Update-
It is back in, but you need to buy a tag from security to play, was told its like $5 for the year......

West lake is least out of your way.  Ewing is not too far off the path.  Big Creek/Walnut are way out of your way.  ANother fine course if you go the north route is in Newton Maytag park, like a mini WW.  Lamoni either course is great to play.  Mokena in the SW Chgo area is a good park as well, I prefer Chanahon (off of I-80 SW of Joliet, basically I-55 and I-80)

Glover is correct.  Homie is ALWAYS AT 9:00 am.

and both of those you are throwing downhill at the baskets, or across a little valley, but downhill nonetheless.  I still remember Jack Black from MN throwing an MRV at #9 and parking it back in like 2001.....

This is why we should NEVER do work in the park without notifying and working with the P&R first.  On first read, it really sounds as though that no one had an advocate on the P&R to ensure that everyone was up to speed on this project.

Please never do any work in the parks with out proper information to all levels.  This not only includes the local municipalities P&R, but also local neighborhood associations that may have a vested interest in the area that we may be using.

We are blessed by the countless people that have worked with the P&R in all of our partnerships, lets make sure that we keep that moving forward!

I would actually like to see the 2011 and 2012 KCWO go to a format with separate Am and Pro weekends. I think it would help in recruiting volunteers from each group to help with the other event.

I think that idea has some merit for sure, and I know it has been talked about.  It really follows the NT format much better as well.  Have the Am event the weekend before, and then maximize the Pro the next.  It hurts in some traveling issues, but it helps locally not to strain as much, but you also have a bunch more work to do as it is 2 events instead of 1.

.... Your rounds must be terribly disappointing.

I have only 3 aces to my credit even though I've been playing basket disc golf for 25 years.

Hmmm, thinking about swope. Unfortunately I don't really know where all the shorts are on that course.  Where are the short pins on #12, #13, #16? are they truly ace shots?  anything that is greater than say 350ft and doesn't allow a clean hyzer or straight-to-hyzer shot isn't an ace possibility in my game.

Ok, enough badmouthing my game there Mister! ;D  Yes I am often disappointed by my game!

Well I think that I am at 9 now, and first played in 1978, started playing on chains in 1983, and got my first ace in 1999.....

#12, just past the tree line, downhill, slightly over probably like 290', curiously enough this was my first Ace in October on 1999, back when the Dobie was there, as were all the trees protecting the basket, up away, and pad not as close to the old fence.  All my knucklehead friends were throing acorns at me as well as I threw it in!

#13, short pad just to the short pin, prolly like ~260'

#16 short is like 280'

I think that you can get Swope down under 3900' if you play it right.  Or get it close to 8400' on the Gold layout.

I have had to set it up pretty short for quite a few work functions and team buildings, so it can play pretty darn simple.

An for many people, an Ace is just a bad shot that got lucky is what I have been told.  Your analogy of drop in shots is the best planning!

How many courses that hold doubles have 18 holes that are realistic ace attempts, even in their shortest layout? answer:  Zero


Actually this argument was brought up after a round of the then doubles league at Swope where everything was set up short, and I would argue that there was actually 18 aces possible, so this was what was at the crux of the argument.

You are right though sir, it is a fun argurment.  Except for Nazi' Keizer, and Hippy Dick..... ;D
