Tournaments / PDGA US Mid-Nationals

Thanks-

Many ticks.  Beautiful fairways, excellent courses, over all a solid design on most courses with some holes that made no sense, putting a basket wedged in between 3 trees 5 feet above the ground, is about as dumb as you can get in my book.  But alas that was one hole.

I would suggest that anyone that ever gets the chance to play up in the Highbridge Hills courses, they make the trip.

This place is the BOMB, there is truly no other place in world that can compete at this point that I have played, and I am close to 300 courses played.

Thanks,

Jack

General Banter / Do you play any of the Leagues?
« on: July 14, 2006, 08:06:42 AM »
playing against better players only gives you ideas on how to play better, and improve your own game.  Leagues are a great way to cheaply improve your game, find people that will give you pointers, and meet some new great golfers.

General Banter / Crestview got jacked
« on: July 14, 2006, 07:55:28 AM »
I think that you are sending the wrong message to the P&R.  I think that you need to TALK with them prior to moving the baskets, and develop a game plan.  To just remove the baskets because one was stolen is not fair to all the people that play.  Putting a sign up that says that the basket was stolen on this hole would be better.  The tone in the letter does not exactly make a warm and fuzzy appearance to the P&R as well.

The land that you are playing is the P&R's, I undeerstand that yours and many other lives have been spent there, but you need to have that dialogue with the P&R so that this does not go generally into the wrong hands, and feel as though you are threating them.  I would spend some time talking with the person in charge of the park first then see what action plan you can put together.

I would also suggest if funding is that tight to have a course fund-raising event to give the city some matching funds and see if that would help show that you want to be a part of the solution, and not just asking for money.  Some departments have $$ others don't, if you could work on a game plan to make it so that they look as though they are not doing it alone, but partnering up with a good local organization that cares should go much further than just saying the city should pay.

Just my thoughts, but any basket thieve deserves to have thier thumbs cut off in my book.

Best of luck.

General Banter / $$$$$ ACE FUNDS $$$$$

General Banter / $$$$$ ACE FUNDS $$$$$
« on: June 30, 2006, 03:59:56 PM »
nononononono

If your dues lapsed within the last 30 days, you have a grace period.  At no point is there a clause that would allow you to keep the $$ instead of dues removed, ask Beckett, Arturo, Todd Henry, Mike D........ I think that all of them have hit aces during leagues more than once in the same year.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hope this is as clear as mud.....

Swope / 6-26 league
« on: June 30, 2006, 03:37:59 PM »
course was set SHORT for the solstice doubles, imagine that they didn't move the pins prior to league.

TJ is a slacker.  I bet he put his discs under the baskets before league started, and used some method of mind control to appear to throw discs....... :twisted:

General Banter / $$$$$ ACE FUNDS $$$$$
« on: June 30, 2006, 03:35:24 PM »
Regular WW league at one point was over $2000, and was hit by someone from Topeka I believe.  That was before the $1 discount, and directly contributed to the change in the $1 discount.  

Before there was additional charge for non-members, after everyone and their friends started to show up, and it was hit by a non-club member I started a thread and this method seemed to meet with the most approval.

I wanted non-clubmembers to only get $50 for ace funds under $500, $100 for under $1000, etc......but alas this method seemed to be the best to everyone.

Now, for expired club members that hit an ace, as long as it is within 30 days of expiration you are ok, if it is over 30 days and you have not paid, then your loss (exceptions can be made if no notifications were sent.  Check your mailboxes soon as notifications were just sent this week.)

Hope that helps.

Tournaments / Solstice Doubles 6/24
« on: June 27, 2006, 10:31:32 AM »
you can't p[redict the rain....

if you can, you need to work for NASA.

I want to personally thank Jeff and Sean for calling off the event.  That rain would have left the park a miserable mess with 100 people trying to play on that could have eroded years of work on the grass that we have been doing.

There comes a point that you must just say enough.  When it threatens the dignity of the park, that decision should be made.  I am not sure if that was discussed or not, but it should be a concern on a
fun" event.  We don't want to destroy the land by trying to finish an event that for the most part even with one round people still had a fun time playing.

Tournaments / 6th Osky Challenge - June 24/25

gotta be something in the water up there TJ!!

This course is a nice course, not heavily wooded on a very nice GRASSY fairway, I think that they said that they found 1 dandelion last year.......wish we could have that problem.  This is where I was born and is where I first played regularly back in the days when I sucked, ohhhh wait that hasn't changed, only the course has from 9 to 18.......

I would encourage anyone to go it should be a fun time, but will fill up for sure, so pre-register!

General Banter / WW Clean Up June 24 8-noon
« on: June 16, 2006, 09:08:15 AM »
Get out here and HELP.  This goes a long way towards the continued work of the disc golf course and our partnership to ensure that the course stays in at WW.  PLEASE HELP!


based on conversations with course coordinator Terry Adams:
Mulch tees and baskets as needed;
trim up and clean the right side of the 13 fairway;
rake the 9 fairway
clean up the leaves along the road/walls
Clean out the downed tree by #3 tee pad
Have P&R look at the metal pipe sticking out of ground by #5 tee pad (just south of Terrapin Station)
remove trees with survey flags by them (George and I started this, there are a few others that I tagged George)
raise tree limbs on the East side of road on N Oak entrance
Remove Ballards on old road #3 fairway
Clear new growth on #6 trail to #7 continue to build rock wall (small) trail to help with erosion

I am hopeful that we should get our expected volunteers of 10-15 people next Saturday morning.  For the club listeing here, please post to me or to Terry that you can help.  I need to have 4 leaders responsible for the following areas:
Leader 1-Hole #1-4 &7 practice basket
Leader 2-Holes 5,6, 8-11 Circle practice basket
Leadern 3-Holes 12, 13, 17, 18 long 8 placement
Leader 4- 14, 15, 16

Please let me know your time and plan of attack.  I would like to meet with all the leaders mext Thursday at League, where hopefully we can all play a round together and eyeball the course.

Thanks,


Jack

CD-I would like to have you and a few others work with the scouts towards the end of the event to help.  I will bring some discs for the kids.

Thanks,

Jack

Prairie Center / poison ivy
« on: June 05, 2006, 12:59:34 PM »
you need to kill the root system and spray it with herbicides.  That is the only way to get rid of the ivy.  Burning it will not get rid of it in its entirity.  The best time to identify it, is in the fall with the leaves of red and kill it then.  The toxins are not as seepy duting this time frame as well.
