General Banter / Re: Hanging baskets-- not allowed in PDGA events?
« on: March 08, 2010, 01:20:57 PM »
I will not use a hanging basket in PDGA events ever, so if you want it used for the local events, thats fine, but at point am I going to have different shots at different times of the day determine scores.

I would also chime in with the notion that I would not like to see the hanging basket at CLiff Drive in the open fairways, but rather would encourage its use in the wooded holes (where the wind is less significant).

I don't like the novelty of hanging baskets.  I played the courses in Council Bluffs, and the Ozarks, and I think that hanging baskets, baskets in trees, etc...are a mockery of a target, and deserve no place in a competitive environment.

That being said, having one to thorw at for fun, can be entertaining, but one for official score keeping, is right up there with playing with a Whamo on today's courses......

Typically, if your in a small group, and you see a big group, I'd just holler, Hey, Coming through, and raise my discs and make sure everyone knows whats happening.

I'd then try my best small talk about, looks like your group is having a blast.....if you get a few distant stares, no biggie in my world, I just have other things to do....

Golf courses require you let people play through, but they also require nothing bigger than a 4-some, unless something special is going on, and the course is closed.  So anyone with a hint of ettiquette is never going to deny you a right to passage.....
Of course they may have known it was you, figured, that sandbagger needs the practice........ ;D

My understanding is that there will be an ":official league", with money exchanging hands and everything out there this year.....

Maybe those that volunteered their time can post something on here about it.....

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.

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
« on: March 03, 2010, 09:40:37 AM »
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!"

I know that Drew moved pins yesterday, so I am sure that he will update with the March Settings soon!
