I got a call from the P&R about them starting to pour 10 pads on Tuesday, and to finish the remainder over the week.  I am very hopeful that this happens, looks like no rain is in the forecast either.  Should be a good week.  Once the pads are in, I'll work on getting the rocks in for tee signs, we will not have a marquee up before world's, but the course should be pretty visible for most people playing.

THanks,

Jack

John,

Lets take it off line, and send you back to math school......$1000/18=$55.5555555555555555555556
 ;D

We can alter the signage possibly to make it more vandal deterrent.  As for the Rules Sign, I know we have verbiage to make ti work, but it would require a KIOSK, and probably having them build that, with a map and rules on one side, and then notifications and information that is easily manipulated on the other would probably be a good thing to discuss.

I'd suggest Tracy and Dick for the signs especially since it will be after the worlds.  They can probably do it relatively inexpensive.....(they'd have to quote you a price, but I bet an 18 hole course can be done for about a $1000 with the ability to alter and update signs easily with minimal cost, sponsors, etc....)

JLS is moer of a Valk for sure.  I gtos a 1st run Leopard and Eagle, I really liked that Eagle initially, but it is different now.

I might concur on the Leopard with Chappy.  The Valk just moves more than the XL for me personally, but then I am a weenie arm.

Stokely had it with the XL, I little over 600 I believe.  I think that he set it 2x, and then Voigt did it with an XS (never could get that disc as well as I liked), before Christian's 800+ Bomber that is current......so in the last decade we have other people that are throwing discs 25% more.....so with the new plastic out there, who is going to break 900' in the air, then 1000'......will anyone touch the roller record?  Its like 3500'

they have, most of what he has that he is selling is stuff that is over 1 year old at the store.

I think that the XL was out before 98 though, I thought that the APX and XL came out in 97.....but maybe that was '98.  XL was out before the Valk, thats for sure.  I bought a bunck of thse stupid RED CE Valk's with rainbow foils....(WHAT A DORK!) that always hyzered and ended up giving them all away.......or losing them.  I think I bought 10 of them initially thinking I liked it better than my XL's....I had about 20 first run XL's, I lost my last one of those Down Under in like 2000......

Gazelle would be about the closest thing Seedy to that XL, but the Valk can act like it as well when its tuned correctly.

they don't wanna be the GM, just a director of their backyard, and the surrounding 30 acres.

it is bad.  I went there yesterday on my lunch to talk about the tee pads, drove through the park from the Renner entrance South and circled back up and counted 7 deer in the disc golf area, and this was at 11:00am.

I dont really care how they get it done, but I hate ticks, so lets keep lyme disease in the urban area to a minimum, and it sounds like they understand it as well.

quite the contrary, now you get a chance to enjoy the location that you are at, and not be completely exhausted from trying to tackle 7 rounds in 5 days.  Last year there were many people that were just tired and exhausted.  It does not make for the best golf to have exhausted people vying for a championship.  You want to be fresh, and with a spring in your step each round.  Its not an endurance test, and the heat of summer hurts many from being at the top of their game.

This is about winning disc golf at a high level.  It is about having a good time while doing it, and it is about enjoying yourself.  This should also give you a chance to check out other divisions that you may not have been able to do in years past.

Idle time is not bad.  I'l work on the tornadoes but no promises!

it was addressed to me and to the personell in his department.  I would imagine that they will work on it this week and next.  He was very surprised to learn that the Purchase Order had been cancelled, and that was the hold up.

He acted quickly and swiftly to move forward with the green light after he found the issue (tuesday) and sent the note out last night.

On another note all you concrete reading internet types......I have a couple of issues that I am hopeful you may be able to help.

1) Staining the concrete.  They would like to have the pads stained to match the color scheme of the natural stone throughout the park.  What have you done, and what works and doesn't work in your experience?  Looking for actual hands on experience here if possible.

2) Benches form needed.  I was thinking of building more like a "rock wall" (think Water Works walls) at each hole as a bench instead of the benches that we have been using.  Utilizing the rocks within the area for the most part, but then getting some type of similar rock that is already cut to be level at the top.  Anyone done anything like that?  I think that it might look more in line with the course aesthetics.


The tee signs will be positioned on large boulders from the park that will be behind the pads, and then slightly at an angle.  I have not heard about anyone donating trash cans yet, but we will need to work on that, as well as something to secure them appropriately.

Also Drew went out yesterday and started to clean up around the the reservoir.  This is GREAT.  I only ask that we work on #11 long and #16.  If we tackle the reservoir and start to expose the wrought iron, trust me the entire community is going to love us even more.  If we get all the exterior side of it, then I will work with the P&R at attacking the interior of the fence.

Cliff Drive is coming along nicely.  Please help out by spreading the word if you like the course, and letting me know if there is something you don't like (besides the open holes being to open.....)
