I do not think of it as a par 4 in the short placement, i am pissed if I get a 4......, generally from hitting the tree right before the pin......URGHHHH

And before Chris says anything, I take it very casually, never get upset, never shout, or scream, I am a calm and relaxed person, this is just one aspect of my game that makes me so strong at disc golf!

Ignore the modification time at the bottom please, these computers are known for getting hiJacked!!!

Bunc'r are stupid.

enough said, if you can't figure out where your disc went out with your group, then you are not paying attention.

Mandos are stupid and a bad design typically that stinks, work the hole so that the thrower has options.

Fabricated OB is something that the USDGC decided to create, and in some instances it makes sense.  It can be creative and cool, but can also be stupid and dumb.  Some of the land that we have to use is BORING, and creating obstacles or OB's is the only way that we can make a course more interesting.  If the hole is challenging, and though provoking, I am all for it.

"Uhhh, why?   Everyone will be all over that hole.  Hell, double even triple bogeys then...."--YES exactly, a hole with a bunch of different scores indicates that there are options and pitfalls for playing it, it creates a thought process, and forces you to.......wait for it........THINK, not just get up and throw.  I take this into consideration on all holes that I work with, and that is why I hate  afew holes at Cliff Drive, but it is also why I have ideas for the BORING segment, and why there is a balance of left to right and right to left shots to create thought process within the game.

I was less than 15' away CD, and there was no wind.  So phhhllllttttt! :P

I gotsta Work now on that w/e...... :(

I assume that you are talking about the right side of #13 for this, as the road comes into play on the left, but just wanting to clarify.....

the names in this story have been changed to protect the innocent   ;D

Did I fail to mention it was Brian Palmer who got 4 aces and did not pay his lousy $4, I am sorry, next time I'll try to use names everyone is familiar with!
 :o ;D :D :) ;)  ::) :P :-*

By having seperate envelopes (which is pretty easy actually) you can do one from each course, and it also allows those people that can only play one round the chance to get at the ace fund, regardless of which round they play.

The goal here is to have an ace fund of some type, and if all else fails have a little windfall to help defray some of the costs of the event (like the trophy discs, ice, scorecards....etc....)

But if you have one fund then if only person hits it, wouldn't they get it all?  And if someone hits one at SM and then no one hits it at WW (last round, where the free beer people show up) you may be more apt to have people pony up the $1.

Also a few yers back we set the precedent that at the Club Championships ace's were rewarded with a free year of KCFDC dues paid.  Those of you with expired dues, remember to bring that extra $20 to go with the $4 ace fund.

Have fun at the Frizz you folks, will be having fun here on better courses!!

Ace fund idea.......


Every year we get into this ace fund argument, because some people think that the ace fund for the course should be up for play at the Club Championships.  It has been determined in the past that it is not.  The leagues support the fund nothe course, so we will leave that argument behind.

My suggestion is relatively SIMPLE, and easy to follow:

Each course has an ace fund that round for $1, with the fund moving forward to the next course if no one hits the ace on that course.  You can play one course put in your $1, and be in that ace fund only, you miss a roud, and you want to be in the ace funds for all the courses, you add an additional $1 for each course you missed (provided no one hit the ace at that other course).Note-This means that once a course ace has been hit, you can not add to that ace fund, of course why would you want to but I thought that I would spell it out.

So here are a few examples:

Demian is playing only at Shawnee Mission Park on Sat morning.  He puts in the $1, no one hits the ace, and it carries on to the next round at WyCo.  Sunday Demian decided that he wants to come play at Water Works, because he is mad that Cliff Drive still does not have concrete pads yet (geesh Jack, you said this year where are they?). 

No one has hit an ace yet all weekend, so he has a choice, does he decide to put his name on each envelope now-He is already on Shawnee Mission, so he would add $1 for Wyco, and $1 for Cliff, and $1 for Water Works, thus being in the entire pot, or does he just add $1 for Water Works and if he hits an ace only gets the WW envelope.  Well being a gambling man he decides to pony up the additional $2, and then is on the last card (because he isn't playing in a flight, because he left after rd 1), and while watching Arturo on hole #3 as he throws his upshot from #2 in the woods, see him ace it, and we watch him cry as he loses another $2.  We try to console him and remind him that it is in fact only $4, and that would not buy a sandwich from Subway, so its ok.

House shows up and says I can get an ace at Cliff Drive and puts in $1, he hits #3, and gets the envelope only for the Cliff Drive ace fund, and then goes to WW, and does not put in the $1, becuase he knows his luck is out.  He proceeds to hit #3 at WW, and since he did not put in the $1, he misses out, and Arturo gets SM, WyCo, and WW because he was in all 4, had he paid for the WW, then House and Arturo would have split the WW fund, with the remainder of the SM and WyCo going to Arturo.(editors nte, Arturo DOES NOT NEED TO HIT ANY MORE ACES, PLEASE LET HIM KNOW THIS!)

Rick decides to get in each round, and at the end of the tournament no one hit an ace, Rick even complains about missing putts, but since nothing was hit the KCFDC gets all the envelopes, and says thanks for helping and playing, and paying.

Brian thinks that his game is no good, and hits an ace at SM Park, well he gets nothing because he did not put any money into the ace fund.  He thens goes to WyCo and hits #5, but again felt as though what were the odds, I already got an ace, wish those people on my card knew about the $5-$1 club.  He then goes to Cliff Drive, where he is razzed about getting 2 aces, and asked if he wants to get in now, he says no, I already have my luck drained, and proceeds to hit this crazy ace on #4, again no one on the card knows what $5-1 is, and he loses again.  Now he goes to WW, and everyone is busting on him, and still doesn't get into the ace fund, and then WHAM, he hits #9, and at least some one on the other card saw it so he got $5 from them.  But since he was the only person to hit an ace all weekend, the ace fund goes to the KCFDC, and we thank him very much for offering up to the disc gods this windfall.......

Morale of the story, bring an extra $4 to play in a free event, and BTW, Boulevard was kind enough to donate a few beer drikning items, so donate to that fund as well!!!


Umm CFR Classic Roc's if you would please as well......I love them.......

par=68. 1000=70, which would be 2 over par and still be a 1000 rated round, your math skills are as awesome as your putting skills! 8)
