Connie Winchell got her first ACE Saturday at William Yates on the 9th basket which is a 176ft shot. She was using a Roc3 and it was witnessed by Miles McKee, Jared Kintzel and myself.

Nice Job!

Tournaments / Re: 2013 Tournament Calendar
« on: June 17, 2013, 09:34:28 AM »
Just browsing the forum this morning and I was thinking to myself, why are there no tournaments at Legacy Park?  Then I remembered there used to be something called the Eastern Front that rotated between Wilbur Young in Blue Springs, Legacy Park in Lee's Summit, and Lake Shore in PHill.  I see it was given an * status on the 2013 calendar.  Is this still going to happen? 

Why are there not more tournaments at some of the eastern locations?  I know some of the parks may be considered "too easy" for more advanced players, but there are plenty of beginners, myself included, that enjoy playing these parks.  I thought I heard once that LSPR is too difficult to deal with, but I don't know if that was the official answer or if that was just an opinion I heard.

Anyway, I would really like to see an event ran at one or more of these parks, and I would be willing to bet there would be a pretty good turn out.  Even if an event was scheduled at the same time as a more advanced or remote event such as an Emporia event say, I think there is enough interest and beginner/intermediate level players out there to make an event like this work. 

No big deal.  If it's found and turned in that's cool.  I have lots of plastic I'm not throwing now.

LS crew is coming for sure.  I'm going to try and sneak out a few min early to beat the traffic coming from OP.  Might be close to or a little after 6 though.

Found and Lost / Lost brand new (3rd throw) PDGA Stamp ESP Stalker
« on: June 10, 2013, 04:05:55 PM »
Black disc with gold PDGA stamp.  I just got this disc with my PDGA subscription and subsequently lost it in the woods at Rosie.  I think it was hole 2, grip locked and turned it over hard into the woods.  I stomped around in the brush and all the way down under but was not able to find this disc.  Name and number are not on it because it's a black disc and all I have is a black sharpie :)  If you find it and want to return it, that would be cool.  If so sad :(

6/23 is a Sunday.  Is that the right date?

Do we NOT have tournaments on Sunday?  It's not like the tournament is scheduled for a Monday.
It might be that getting chuchified is more important to that individual.

LOL nope I got plenty Churchified early on.  It was a question not a statement, which is why I put a question mark at the end of my sentence.  Had I been stating a fact, rather than asking a question, I would have used a period. 

I got plenty schoolified early on as well as being fluent in the English language :) 

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Re: Grass Problem
« on: May 31, 2013, 10:27:37 AM »
Tues night I picked up at least 8-10 cans/bottles & still missed 3 birdie putts. One day the karma will show up. The tues night company was enjoyed by all except maybe for Casey, his ass was a lil sore from Louie

Casey was definitely NOT enjoying Louie's company!  I missed the can's Tues night.  Who is in charge of moving baskets?  Is that KCFDC or LSPR?  The baskets were moved between Tues night and Wed night, but the cans remained.  Or someone came back for round two.

I played with a good group out there on Tuesday night and they have not only mowed the fairways, but all the "cabbage patches" as well.  All those green, leafy, disc eaters were chopped down, and the snake as well R.I.P. 

Seriously though, I think LSPR does a pretty good job of keeping the park looking nice.  That being said, I went back out last night looking for a disc that fell out of my bag on Tuesday's round, and saw that the baskets had all been moved, which is good to keep things fresh and exciting.  I also saw a bunch, and I mean probably an entire 12 pack, of Bush Beer cans strewn across the front 9. 

This is poor taste at any park, but inexcusable at Legacy where there are trash cans every other hole.  The cans were not there on Tuesday when I played and no one in my group was drinking Bush.  This either happened during a day round on Wednesday or maybe a Tuesday night glow round.

If you know who the culprit is, shame them for leaving their trash behind.  I don't want to end up with not being able to enjoy a frosty beverage or two because someone can't pick up after themselves.

Found and Lost / Lost at Rosie 16 or 17 (over the privacy fence)
« on: April 30, 2013, 10:47:29 AM »
Two weeks ago, I lost a Blizard Wraith (yellow) over the new wooden privacy fence at Rosie.  I was hoping some good soul dropped it by the disc return, or gave it to someone.  Should have my name and number (may be worn off a bit, but it's there).  Perhaps Cujo ate it, and if he did, I hope it gives him gas!  If anyone finds it let me know.

Summer Leagues / Re: Summer League Info
« on: April 10, 2013, 10:56:24 AM »
There is a new league in town. Pleasant Hill will be having rec league on Thursday nights. This will be similar to Rosedales rec league on Mondays in that it will be a free league to play. The thought process is that being that far east it will accessible to rec players that can't/won't make it to Rosedale. I hope to see and meet any veteran players that would like to come out and help grow the sport. I know this is short notice for this week and I am not expecting large numbers this week but I will be out there for anyone that wants to come out. I will be getting the word out around town starting tomarrow. It will be a 6pm tee time so show up a little early. Any questions feel free to PM.

This is great news!  I will most likely be playing this one, since I live in LS.

"If I was buying you beers I would resort to the Natty Light or PBR" (Too much work to quote the whole string)

Now your talking.  I perfer "The Beast" actually.  $11 for a case, now that's economic.  (insert discaimer here about DGW in no way supporting the drinking of alcoholic beverages)

How come when someone expresss an opinion that is construed as having a bad day?  I simply don't like additional fees.  In fact, I don't know of many people who like paying more for something they could be paying less for.  I know even fewer people who like paying for "handling fees", which is exactly what a 4% credit card fee is.  And yes Rick, 4% is both excessive and exploitive, that's how banks make money :) (insert disclaimer here about DGW in now way being associated with the 4% credit card fee)

I do understand that there is a cost to doing business, as I said before for those who paid attention, I'm a business owner myself.  I paid for a business license, I pay business taxes, I understand everyone gets a piece of the pie.  Some pieces are smaller than others, and as a responsible business owner, I owe it to my customers to keep costs down.  (insert disclaimer that DGW is in no way associated with the LDO)

Now, all of this being said, I am planning on attending the LDO.  I will bring cash, as I in no way want for anyone to pay for me to have fun.  I never asked for anyone to pay for my entry fee, nor did I complain about the entry fee.  I only expressed a concern that I thought 4% for a credit card was high.  (you get the idea by this point I hope)

I'm not angry, I'm not going to blow up a building or anything... I just thought I could cary on a rational, adult, debate about something that I had an opinion on... or is that not what a "Forum" is for?

I too cannot wait until Sat.  I'm going to have a great time!

Well, in a word, Yes.  It does bother me.  I could take the time and piece together all the previous posts, but to be honest I don't feel like working that hard this morning.  I am, however, in just foul enough of a mood to keep beating this horse until It's sufficiently dead. 

1) if it's not a store sponsered event, why are cc payments being accepted at DGW for 4%?
2) I know it's not a club event, never said it was
3) just trying to shed some light on the fact there are cheaper ways to accept CC.
4) you don't think banks get hacked

I could go on and on, but I wont.

I'll cover the steep $1 fee for you.
It's not the amount, but the principal.  It's like saying, well I have to pay for electricity, so I'm going to charge you a % of that for walking in my door.  You don't do that, but I'm sure it's a consideration when deciding what to charge for goods and services.
