It is pretty simple....and Yes Mike I believe that you were there.   Lets see if I can remember everyone that was there that day.....
Buckle
Jack
Sonny
Lockwood
Mike
Tj
TJ's Bro
Brad Ford
Kevin Corbett
Kevin Smith
Pete
Nick Arbeitman
Arturo
Jamie Danger
Mike Enos

Is all that comes to mind.

Here is the deal with it Keizer.

20 holes.  Homie calls each hole (Homie is the loser from the previous week) Generally the course called, plus 2 additional holes.  Sometimes it is safari, but only on days where it doesn't interfere with everyone elses game.

Each hole is $1 from everyone.  One winner (singles most all times)  One tie all tie, until someone wins it all.

You can HECKLE anyone at anytime with the exception of their drive.

You LOSE a stroke for getting in the way of a disc between the player and the basket, and the player gets to throw again.  This is unlike the rules for another league that they HIT YOU ON PURPOSE to give you strokes.  In other words be a gentleman and get out of the direct line, you may ask the player move prior to putting.  Intentional hits of players results in you gaining a stroke.

$5 for the best overall score.

Each hole is paid first then teed up.

The Loser becomes HOMIE, and they must take the box home and display it prominently until they have beaten the next Homie the following week.....NOT 18 MONTHS LATER!!!!!!!

Most of the time it must displayed on your TV to feel shame.

Homie calls the next location and the race begins.

You also do not go by your name, you must go by an Animal name.  Once you lose, you must engrave your name in the box that Homie has and mark it each susequent time you take him home.  Homie does have a Barbie with him, so if you have a partner that week, one gets Homie, and the other gets Barbie.

The initial rule was that no pro's could play Homie.  We discussed it last night and were thinking about a ratings cap of 975 or 950, but then we played cards.

Homie has been a lost art.  There used to be a Hawaii Homie, where it was $5/hole $20 overall.....but that has not happened in years....though I would be game.......

KCMO P&R and I discussed this with our next purchase, they were to engrave the KCMO P&R purchase # on the basket as well as contact information, either along the pole or the numberplate.  I am not sure if that have done that with the new baskets for Cliff/BV/WW that we just got, but this reminds me that we need to do so.

bad w/e for me, I have the kids, and Sunday is the Fantasy Football Superbowl in my league....where I am a finalist, so I will not be able to play, then I will be in IA the following w/e, but I will be back on the 4th of January if you want to do it then.  I'd choose Cliff Drive, but then I do not have Homie...

I plan on donating them to the Police Athletic league and designing a 6-hole course for them, with one extra to practice on.

if you do not qulaify as an open player, you would want to do the following to guarantee you get to play.  If you get invited as an am, go ahead and pay to get your name in the event.  Then once the open enrollment period begins, contact the PDGA and let them know that you would like to play as an Open player, and then pay the extra fee (probably double what Am's pay).  That should be it.

I went through the trees and put it about 3' behind it, and my partner put it 2' short, so you were due.  Nice shot though, thats a fun shot.

Winter Leagues / Re: Olathe Winter League
« on: December 12, 2008, 12:39:06 PM »
I respect what Tom did 3 years ago when he created the Winter Monday Night Glow league.   Nothing goes to the club, he has his own Ace Fund, and it is full payout.

Is the club broke?  Out of money?


No but having leagues without paying the club it will be broke.  This decade the entire disc golf scene has gone from 4 locations to over 14 to play.  That is a direct reflectino of what the club and the volunteers have done.  Without leagues funding our outreach efforts, we wouldn't have these courses, we wouldn't have the worlds, we wouldn't have this forum.

So is the club broke, the answer is always, are we out of money, the answer is no, but the reality is that we have no money that is of real value.  If we did we could buy our own land, create our own course, pay people to maintain it, and not be at the beck and call of the city's that we have worked painstakingly to be partners with over the years.

complaining about $.50 is absolutely foolish.  That does not make it or break it for league.  You can alwasy add more money, do the Swope deal, where $2 is added to the pro purse.  That solves your issue, make it work, don't look for ways to take from the very existence that has infact afforded this entire town to play disc golf for close to 20 years.  Makes no sense to bite the hands that fed it for years before you started playing.  This is a legacy folks, it is not just about us, it is about the future.
