Beginners / Re: Pin Placement Screws?
« on: April 21, 2015, 10:43:36 am »
The OTHER piece of this is we would need to COORDINATE all courses on the same painting scheme.  Which we should be doing as well.  That in itself would be controversial I am sure, but something to look at as well in the future.

It should go.....
Red=Short
White=Middle
Blue=Long
Black/Gold=Championship

But in some locations we have more than one.  If we could get everyone on the same color schematics for starters that would be great.  If we needed to add a color, GREEN would go in front of Red, and then we could look at putting in an Orange between Blue and Black/Gold.

I think we should tackle that first.

Ok, so I am apparently the secretary for the Captain. 

Great moments...are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here, tonight, boys(and ladies). That's what you've earned here tonight. One game (event). If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine. But not this game(event), not tonight(this weekend). Tonight(this weekend), we skate Throw with them. Tonight (this weekend), we stay with them...and we shut them down because we can! Tonight, WE are the greatest hockey Disc golf team in the world (KC AREA). You were born to be hockey playersDISC GOLFERS. Every one of you. And you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets WESTIES THINK THEY have. Screw 'em. This is your time! Now go out there and take it!

 -remove soviet's, insert West Side prima donnas here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoZX_Zvb3OA -

So in lieu of the rain soaked cancellation that the West Side feels isn't an organized group, we are giving a great chance for everyone to EARN their spot on the team.  On top of the qualifiers this week, we will be RAISING the bar on the qualifications.  We will be hold OPEN competition for the 6 spots at Cliff Drive on it's most difficult layout.  We will be hosting the East Side Trials on Sunday's in May, on the 10th and on the 17th.  It will be a flex start between 9-3.  I will be out there on Mothers' Day weekend and Steve will be out there on the 17th.  This way you can help with the Disc Diva event at Swope on Saturday the 9th, and come out Sunday, or play the Paradise and come out Sunday, if Mother's day is tough, come the following weekend.

Here will be the layout for Cliff-
1-Original (4)
2-Long (if Longer placement is cleared out, possibly on the tee of terror-depends on my work out there) (3)
3-Original (3)
4-Long (Left pase "rocks" placement) (3)
5-Long (unless we get the LONGER right placement cleaned up, then it may go there) (3)
6-New LONG-(I have been clearing out longer, I hope to have it ready by then) (4)
7-Long (up in the keyhole second deep placement) (4)
8-Long (Around the corner) (4)
9-Only (3) Front 9 Par 31
10-LONG (Be mindful you could go back to #8 hangar, that putt sucks from there) (4)
11-LONG (3)
12-ONLY (3)
13-LONG (4)
14-Across the Street (4)
15-LONG (3)
16-LONG (this will be to #18 Pin up the hill) (4)
17-Island (4)
18-LONGEST (This will be to where Blue Practice Basket is currently located) (4) Back 9 par 33

Total par 64

I will be moving the pins probably this weekend, I will be moving Blue practice to 1 short.

So if you wanna practice get on out there!  I think anyone shooting in the 50's will get a spot on this layout.  Top 6 scores for certain, possibly 8 based on Captain's picks folks!

Unfortunately the decision to cancel the second round on the City of Fountains to due weather and time constraints for fair play did render the City of Fountains scores as unacceptable for the Spots on the East Side.  There were some exceptional scores from each course, but without having a fair and accurate balance of scores from both venues, a determination was made that another qualifier will be announced at a later (soon to be announced) date.

For the mean time, hit up Swope tonight, and Liberty tomorrow night for your spots if you wanna get in there!

This was posted on the Facebook page.  I know many of our fine folks don't have that facebooger thing, so just sharing the information

Which layout?  All nickels, (currently the women's layout for the Challenge) or Red baskets and nickels?

???

Since the Blue River goes to both courses, it makes sense to attach them.  This is a revisit to the "Sun Burn Open" that was along these lines about 10 years ago.  All the work at Blue Valley and the fun course of Swope will make this a great day.  The following week I believe that Rob Martin is planning another event at Blue Valley (Big Blue) where I believe he will be STRETCHING out Blue Valley and putting it's teeth in.  This will give you a chance to play alternate courses and formats on a great track of land.  Something that course needs more of for certain!

One round Swope UBER short and a modified Blue Valley (think last years club championships).  Will probably cap at 90, play Swope in the morning, and Blue Valley in the afternoon.

It is a PDGA C-Tier (entries will be $35-$60 for non PDGA members +$10 more)

More information to follow.

awesome work folks!

Hole 9 is a 4?  Sigh.  Maybe u should go right not left.

Mando TREE up the fairway so you can't go right.....

I would say that 18 short is a 3 as well, putting it at 60.....honestly if you go 4 on #18, you need to go 4 on #7

For cliff;
55 or 56, hole #1=4, and then uncertain if #16 will be called a 4 or not.

Yes, lightning does change things, which brings up a GREAT safety point about stoppage in play. 
http://www.pdga.com/rules/competition-manual/section-1-tournament-procedures/17-suspension-of-play

You DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT, have to mark your disc with a mini, use something like a rock, a branch in the ground works, etc.....the most important thing is if you hear the 3 blasts, GET OFF THE COURSE AND GET TO A SAFE PLACE.

Typically you will have at LEAST 20 minutes before play is to resume, some give you 30 minutes.  It is YOUR responsibility to know when you are to start.

This isn't Scott's first rodeo, and knowing our weather I am sure that he will mention the scenarios at the players meeting.  You can't unilaterally decide the weather is bad, rain sucks, but if there is no immediate lightning concerns, play on in the rain.

blue valley is set, they just played it different last night.  They are both set.

I would send them to City of Fountains to watch the event as well.  Can see the 2 "hood" courses that everyone seems to feel is unsafe as a refuge in a land that was ignored, and how we have changed the landscape.  That would be great PR on both aspects for certain.

11 short is also a fun run down the hill.   I think that is a new placement.

Nope, just re-set.  Been there a few years now.

basically from hole 9 to hole 14 you are playing the inner course, skipping holes 10 and 11, this allows you to play holes 17 and 18 instead.

I forget that most people don't have the hours on this course that I do, so I am sorry for it being confusing.  Doug will make it easier I am sure.

have fun folks.
