actually the front 6 at Cliff are not that bad unless it is raining while you are there.  It drains itself pretty well, the only real issue is getting up the hill on #5 (there are ropes to help) and then up to #7, the path on #4 to #5 on the back side is not as easy to navigate on the back pin placement as the original path down, so you may want to walk a little back and take that down, otherwise its been pretty easy to play on after rains for the most part.

I don't think that Avery Jenkins speaks for the disc golf community. 

The opinions above are expressed by Dick, and therefore are his and his alone, your opinion may vary!  They are therefore not those of all disc golfers, adn one man's opinion as is indicated in most posts.

time frame TBD, but it looks like April/May/June is the plan with them, and its still not difinitive, but the cancellation is.

I respect the other events and the people that run them.  We have events pretty well planned within the area through August.

A quick to the link above will show that.

With  these events, and other events that are not really "Local" over 50 miles but heaveily attended it makes no sense to try to fight within our own disc golf community for the players.

Listen to Mr. Clean, even with the changes that I didn't like, its still better than the other two metioned, and its in the same area.

I have actually had some really good luck water proofing my New Balance shoes with Scotchguard...granted I have to do it about twice a year, but it sure beats walking around in wet shoes and socks for 3/4's of the course...not to mention that they last me about 2 years of use.
That does not WATERPROOF them, it merely water resists them.

New Balance does have a line of Waterproof shoes, I am a fan of New Balance as well.  Spencer, they also have the BEST selection of sizes (width in particular).    I personally have a combination last, skinny heel, and a wide foot base, so I really need a shoe with a B heel, and an E front.  I found that to be the case in my Keens, which is probably why I liked them as much.

I would venture to bet if you went to a few stores and tried on some shoes, you could find what you liked, and then shop online for a better price point.

$100, $110, it doesn't matter, if your feet are not comfortable, your round will suck.  Comfortable feet make the entire day feel better.  Dry feet, make you feel a ton better then wet feet.

Waterproof socks are also a good option to ensure a relatively dry foot, though they do tend to make your feet wet from the internal moisture, your feet do dry quickly once out of the socks.  They typically are only good for about 1-2 years of disc golf wear though.

But I don't want to run up against the other events.  I like the people running them, and I get mad when people don't ask me.  I specifically sought the plan from these guys back in January to ensure that I didn't have this issue.

It also boils down to WW seeing work on it, and I don't want to tax the course that is undergoing changes from the public services sector.  Lets let them do their job, then use the course when it is not under construction.

Yeah, but I had the same problem with them, they ripped out on my right pinky toe.

I bit the bullet and bought them online Mike.

I HATE TO DO THAT, but it was a free pair of shoes from the USDGC, so I thought that I would try.

Milo's were not out yet, so I tried these.  When I called the first few stores listed, they indicated that they did not carry Keen's, but knew that they were listed on their website, so definately call first.

I really hate to buy things online, but this was something that I saw, I was comfortable with, and with a size 12 shoe, 11 1/2's are hard to come by, and 13's are always to big, so I blinked twice, threw spit into the wind, and was happy as a clam when I got them at home about a week later.

I still plan on wearing these as I said even with the tear, they didn't leak, I just doubt that they will withstand as much disc golf as I need a pair to handle.

I'll buy the Milo's and wear the new pair of Obsediens they  send me.

Waterworks is scheduled to have some work done that I really do not want to worry about, the rest of the month is pretty well set, and the weekends before it have Lamoni, and Emporia, so unfortunately I could not think of a better date at this time.

I also like the idea of the 3 round 2 day event in the fall where I may be able to raise some funds to make it B-tier style payout as a C-tier, or a good payout, without a PDGA agreement so that we can have some local barley on the course as well.

Only time will tell, but its hard to let go of my baby!

I used to blame my bad rounds on shoes then noticed I wasn't wearing any

Non-pdga events I am sure.....
