Prairie Center / Re: WORK DAY AT PC!!!!

agreed.  it's punishment enough to be in that shule anyway.  there's some pretty thick stuff behind those fences.

I think a lot of what is being called sandbagging is a result of the ratings division lines that were implemented in 2008.

Advanced fields were bigger last year because the cutoff for Adv was 915.  I also think that a lot of players that were rated 900+ were playing up in Adv, so that contributed to big turnouts.

But, when the ratings divisions shifted to Adv being 935 and up, a lot of those low 900's Advanced players that were pretty much always donating got the chance to come back to Intermediate and have some success.   I've brought this up on the PDGA boards before and the peanut gallery response is always the same, play where the PDGA says you should.  The competition committee felt that these splits were fair to everyone.  Couple that decision with the decision to let Pros that have accepted money play Advanced as long as their rating is low enough, and I'm starting to scratch my head and say "Wha happened?"

my standing policy is that the minute my rating goes over 900 you will see me in advanced.

after the next ratings update, i think i'll be pretty close.

heck, you may get your wish earlier than spring gunboat.

nah, just saying my 883 PDGA rating gets a real morale boost from all the sandbagger comments ;)

1385
dan, i think you missed my thick sarcasm.   ;D

considering that the 54 i scored in the 2nd round is my best round at WW ever, i'm hardly what you call a sandbagger on that course ;)

i'm glad someone else decided to call out house  ;)

Plus the level of play is much more laid back and stress free which helps everyone play well.

you sure about that? i seem to remember a gentleman on our card that didn't exactly lower the stress level.

Eric K. and I had that all worked out before that round, my job was to trick you into shooting poorly so he could catch you....  ;D

eric played a great final round.  he nailed a 25 footer from behind a tree on our last hole to go ahead of me.   in truth, it was nice to be able to spend the last day on cards with players that i've spent a lot of time competing with/against.

the finish didn't mean much to me at all, though it was nice to cash a little bit.  those courses really killed me last year, especially oakland front, and it was nice to extract a little revenge.  indian hills still has its revenge coming.  oh well, always next year!

I hope that knocking me off of my high horse doesn't involve shooting the same score as i did when we played on the same card in the 3rd round ;)

my kudos go to mark ehlert and the columbia club for putting on a fantastic tournament!

even though Indian Hills is a bear and I will have nightmares about it for months, I will probably still keep going back every year.

I didn't see the final results, but I know that at least 5 KC guys cashed in Intermediate, Kevin Hart and Justin Atwater-Taylor were in the top 5 in Advanced, CD Steiner - 2nd in Masters, and our own Arturo!!!! was in the final nine.  My apologies to any others that I left out(I saw Tom Butler and Bryan Guthrie around but I didn't see how they finished before we took off).

Great representation from the KC crew!

General Banter / Re: Legacy Park Course in Lee's Summit
« on: July 10, 2008, 07:21:16 AM »
if you want to see some baskets so bad, just drive up around the maintenance building.  the baskets are assembled, just behind the large chain link fence.  maybe that will assure you that, yes, there are going to be baskets installed.

look, the problem is that the amphitheater in legacy park is more of a priority for the city right now.  am i a little disappointed that the course isn't in yet? sure.

and for christ's sake, yes, they're going to mow the fairway areas and around the baskets.  do you really think that Lee's Summit is just going to plunk 18 baskets down in the middle of waist high weeds and call it good?

it'll all be done right, it's just going to take time.  and it's not going to get done any faster by complaining more.

i've been in touch with steve casey in the last week or so.  their plan is to mow the fairway areas this week or next.  obviously, other things can push this back.   we just have to be patient.
