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.

we can accommodate CC's with a 4% service fee.

4% ouch!  I use square on my phone for taking credit cards for only 2.75%  I know of a certain disc golf store in town that doens't charge anything for using a credit card.  It may well be built into the cost of goods just like rent, payroll, etc... but they don't charge you for using a card.  Just sayin, that's the cost of doing business... for us digital age folks, cash is not often on hand.

I just watched some guy nail #11 at Legacy last night.  I was on my second shot on #10 when I heard chains.  I'm not sure what to call that dance he was doing, but it was a pretty sweet shot.

I still haven't heard anything on this, or the Road Runner I lost at Phill or Legacy the week before.  So much for honesty!  Also lost my pro Vulcan near the big pond at Blue Springs last weekend.  I came back to look for it again after the round and saw a couple of guys "fishing" for discs using those disc retriever things.  I would like to think they would call the owners if they found anything with a name and number on it...

I think I lost my Champ Groove out there on Tue.  Next time someone checks the disc return, let me know if it's there.  My name and number are on the back.  Second disc this week!  Not good!!

Sunburst Tie-Dye Red, Yellow, White...  Second disc in a week.  I would really like to have this one back.  My name and number are on the back of the disc.  If you find it, just drop in the disc return at the clubhouse and I'll pick up next league night.  Thanks!

I may be a little late, but I'm going to try to make it.  I work in LS but don't get off until 5PM so it will be pushing it.

Tye Dye Champ Road Runner?  Just lost this over the weekend.  Not sure if it's at Legacy or Phill, or somewhere in between :(
