Those would be the new layout that I am working on.  If they are completed, then I will attempt to incorporate it by then.  I am hopeful to start this week on getting the 4 new holes in, and will be starting with the new #1 and #2.  It will be to the North of the practice basket.  Eventually the holes will be renumbered, and the current #1 will become #18.

Ugh.  I haven't been out there, and obviously course coordinator Matt eklund hasn't done much either. 

When I get back from Iowa this weekend I will start to dive into the course again.

The rain while I was away from Japan I am sure has made it even bigger out there.  I will probably install my own cameras in all honesty out there in the woods.

I know on #17 they were working on a new pipe to help the sewers, so it is all messed up, so next week we may have to alter the course and play a few different holes, or at least skip #17, and play from #17 pad to #18 basket, and then play the Hanger on #8.

Tree Love Classic will be that Saturday, darn it.  Sounds good, but would rather help locally on this weekend!

It is a multi-use park.  Some weekends, you will have that other part taking over.  Just as we look as a group to reserve the courses, and work with P&R, I am sure that the soccer teams do the same as well.

Be mindful, and don't get in an argument over the fact that it impacted a few holes.  Let it go.  Ask once and take the high road.  We give in terms of sweat and blood on the courses.  Most of these "fagball" types pay hard earned cash to get out for the weekend and play.  It is their right to do so as well within the park. 

Are they being gracious hosts?  Absolutely not, destroying property though is an offense that should be notated, and discussed.

If we paid to play on the parks we would have more ammunition, but realistically, especially with a new course down the street, don't get angry, go be happy that countless people helped to put in a new course that won't have those concerns close by. 

That is a large park with a big revenue stream from soccer, and ball fields, we are the little man on the totem pole.  The Chief may not have spoken  on the issue out there, but lets be better than those we need to interact with.

I for one appreciate your restraint for all of the disc golfers out here, many wouldn't have handled it as well as you did.

Thanks,

Jack

Cliff Drive / PDGA LEAGUE-NORTHEAST COURSES-Begins 7/7/14

Appropriately 7-7=14 on Monday night I will run the PDGA league at Cliff Drive again.

Here is the scheduled locations and probable pin settings:
7-7-14-Longer as it sits now, I may move a few things this week, but doubtful.  All nickels.
7-14-14-Shortening some holes, playing to practice baskets on #1, #8, #11
7-21-14-Try to use new holes #1 and #2 in this format will skip playing #9, #17, #18, play from #17pad to #18, all nickles
7-28-14-Back to all nickels.  Moderate length
8-4-14-BLUE VALLEY NIGHT-Mixture of "executive and BIG Course, kicking out 14, 17, 18, will have maps.
8-11-14-Pre Lion's Den Layout-SHORTY-SHORT SHORT-hope to have new places in play here.
8-18-14-Post LDO format-same unless we do it differently.
8-25-14-Starting to shorten the course for loss of daylight
9-1-14-Labor Day No League
9-8-14-A few more shorter holes
9-15-14-last league of PDGA night, TLC layout from final round (believe that is the weekend before)
9-22-14-Non PDGA League-Random Doubles
9-29-14-Last League of Season-Group decision, thinking about bagtag doubles-then alternate short format

Food for thought, but wanting to mix it up a little on the league play out here at Cliff.  Next year hopefully someone else will run it, but in the future, big belief that Cliff will attempt to be the experimental league with all notions open to try.  Including Triples, and format nights, ala 6-6-6, etc for people to experiment and learn new games.

I missed this in the league manual so we will try to be more different moving forward out here.  Also while you are in here looking, be advised that much work is about to be started at Cliff Drive in the upcoming months to alter the configuration.  We have lost many trees, and Drew has started the Tree Fund for a reason out here.  It is exciting and hard to deal with change, but I am hopeful that the changes that take place will enamor you more to this great place to play disc golf!

Storm was obviously coming in, so I didn't set it up.  After playing in the rain, and the rain delay.....I went up and had some of the dinner they provided (great food BTW) and went to hotel took a shower, went out to eat in the dryness of the restaurant.

Dodgebee wasn't orchestrated at this time....however I hope to have it ready to go for the LDO.

Courses were in some pretty good shape out there for the most part.  Obviously very hot.  People were great, my play was atrocious.  I think I know how to play this game....but it doesn't show.  I also think that I have something wrong in my right shoulder, so I may be taking off playing time for the month of July and focus on getting Cliff Ready for the LDO.

you will never get basket areas to grow grass on heavily used courses unless you move the pins often......tilling and sod are really the best options.  I tried tilling and seeding for the past 3 years in my own yard, finally broke down and tilled and sod, and yard looks much better now....the issue in our courses is that we use them frequently and it causes soil compaction http://www.extension.umn.edu/agriculture/Tillage/soil-compaction/index.html and we harm the ground and truly do prevent it from being able to get the nutrients it needs to flourish.....why we chip and mulch so much around the baskets and the teeing areas, those are places that everyone walks by all the time.....

No frills, but after the Holiday, I will be returning the NE league to the Monday Night PDGA league.  I am uncertain who has been running it, but if someone is, I will help make it happen.  Just means an extra $1 on league night for the PDGA, and that portion that comes to the club will continue to be added to the TLC funds for the course.

Please let me know your thoughts.
