Swope / Re: Number 11 tee

I am going out there today. Maybe this can be addressed at next week's workday, but yes Mark is correct it should look good and it seems there was no communication about the work. Personal leadership is always to be commended, and good communication is right there too.

Swope. Yes. When? I am sure the gulley course could get some experienced and into education golfers to help out. You'd probably only need 3 or 4 people to help with such a small group. How many rounds? Picnic/BBQ midday with some disc related activities?
Depending on when it is, I can help.

Looks like I missed a great group at the gully course tonight. Next week.

WOW to Tavish, Fred, and the gang. You have raised the bar for Disc Golf Days to come. This is was an exceptionally good event. Thank you for all you do!

Cool. Thanks I agree. How about next Thursday?

Innova  and schwag around these parts. I wish I could make this one. I have to miss Thornfield twice in two weeks. What a shame.

So I never threw the disc at league. I guess it fell out at some point. Name is on the inside rim w/ tel #. Good karma if returned.

I say we throw out Jake's score.  Clearly that's an outlier intended to skew the stats for everyone else. 

As long as you're throwing out the outliers, I guess you could throw out my 65. ;). With so many local faces, it was a fun night of golf.

This thread sums it all up. A bunch of people with opinions, a few with facts, and poor communication and misunderstandings.

The mission statement was the first thing I worked on the board to provide a focus for all to work towards. Yet, we have a lot more to do with the old leadership and new in this organization. Cooper, I know you live in Lawrence but I could see getting involved at that level. My two cents.

The bottom line is to do the work and communicate with the CC's, hence, the club. If we want to be a leading organization we have act like one and keep our online personalities with our face-to-face personalities.
This topic is very informative and I thank Cooper for his insightful responses. Now that we have espoused our solutions let's get done what needs to be done.  In other words, this is still talk, important, but still talk.

Don't ever worry about pissing someone off. My two cents. That's how things sometimes get done. I have been thinking about this topic for years and do often wonder why it takes the community of God to make something happen. It is a shame most people don't give, and I mean truly give, for all the right reasons. I am a huge supporter of local churches everywhere as they do so much good. And why do they do it? Well, that may be very personal to each individual, but I can bet one part is the camaraderie of doing something with friends for one purpose.  I think we have that in this dispersed and rag tag group. However, the fissures you speak of are obvious.

I agree with the railroading certain members often engage in to push a single agenda. I am glad to hear someone say it. I work against and with it but I am just one person.  Yes, we have lots of work to do in this organization. Communication is dysfunctional among us.

I have similar experience with trying to organize workdays. I get lots of advice about what I should and could do. I don't want to do it. I want some help. BTW, Patrick Smith and Chris Millsap have been great to work with at Swope.  I guess my stance is to keep going out and doing what I can and trying to encourage and engage more people. It is my M.O. to lead and model what I think works.

As for the PDGA league, I went out tonight and played with Ryan Keck and CD. What great company. They were so kind as they watched my good round implode. :)  The worst part was as I came in and announced my out-of-character 63, Jack was so happy because he qualified and beat me. :) Next time!  ;)

General Banter / Re: Is this possible?
« on: April 15, 2013, 09:03:12 PM »
I like to take some time off when I have the opportunity to play as much as I want. The summer my wife was in Europe for eight weeks I played five days a week, and played the best golf of my life, so far. In that time period I also took one week off in the middle for the Fourth of July. It is possible for me to play way too much. There are faults I can get focused on way too much. It's not enough to be aware of them either. There have been many times I have been completely conscious of my mistakes, yet continue to make the same mistake again and again. By taking time off, you give your muscles time to model the work you have been doing, so when you return it is built-in to memory.

Once again, find what works for you. I am convinced this is all technique and routines that each player creates over time. Take my advice with a grain of salt. I have not had the resources to catapult to the level of Loomis or Cooper.
