From Jack
"The pools are starting to look along these lines for the event-

Pool A-Men's Open 
Fri-WW am & Cliff pm-Sat Blue Valley Tee Times-Sun @ Swope Tee Times
Pool B-All other Pro Divisions
Fri-Cliff am & WW pm-Sat Blue Valley Tee Times-Sun @ Swope Tee Times
Pool 1-Advanced Men
Sat-WW am & Rosedale pm-Sun Cliff
Pool 2-All other Am divisions
Sat-Rosedale am & Cliff pm-Sun WW

If the am pool totals less than 95 players we will put all players in one pool, and that would look like the following then:
AM ONLY POOL
Sat-Rosedale am & Cliff pm-Sun WW"

As of today 6-4-11 there are 68 Pro players registered for the NT event, and 53 Am players registered for the A tier event. Does this mean all 53 Am players are playing for a total of three trophies? This is a trophy only event for the Am players as I understand. Is this correct? Please clarify.

@Andy aka Slant "That is a bunch of crap Coop....don't worry about it and stomp it again this year!!" 

To be clear I was complimenting Cooper. SO no, not a bunch of crap.
I didn't want to seem rude by posting it on the forum. Cooper chose to share it w/ all y'all.

Smithville / Re: new walking trail through the course?
« on: April 25, 2011, 08:33:58 pm »
I am awaiting my five new courses. ;)

Yeah there are going to be some issues for sure. There are some great MTB trails at Smithville and as a rider and golfer, I am not going to stop my ride to allow a golfer to throw. And no I am not riding the paved paved trails.  ;D This a shared space and we must consider everyone involved. The phrase "oh I won't hit 'em" is gonna bite somebody in the arse for sure. So many times I have heard players say" I can't even throw it that far." Well, that is the moment you are most likely to throw it that far, possibly hit someone. Nobody wants to hit anybody with a disc. I think. Use discretion.

And I'd like to add publicly my props to Dan and all involved in this monumental project. Great job guys and gals!

A big congrats to Pete E. When I spoke to him Saturday, he told me how he took a 5 on the last hole and still won by 2.Yeah! Go P.E. in effect!

If you're trying to start a fire under some rear ends, I think there are better ways. Really Rep vs Dem? Personally, I am under the impression the majority of disc golfers are, in fact, quite conservative. Sure we all disagree on some points, but not all that many. We seem to be a level headed and practical bunch in many ways. I guess my rant here is that all this politic shmolitics is intended not to focus on what is really important but instead to distract.

What really matters here is the economics of disc golf. Instead of playing political games here, why not challenge the young blood in our community to come out and put in some volunteer time. I see lots of new young players a lot on the courses and would like to see more involvement from these players.  Why did I say economics of disc golf? Because of the following: Who runs our disc golf "household"? What is involved in running this "household"? Our "household" is kept up through a few big actions by a few and a thousand little ones by the many. I am one of the many. Every chance I get I make disc golf better by picking up litter and trash, by moving fallen limbs to drainage areas to slow erosion, or just telling people about disc golf and all the great things our community does. So, I'd like to challenge more of the many previously mentioned to get out there and make a difference everyday.

I know being inflammatory is part of your modus operandi, yet I felt the need to offer a different challenge.

And no I can't make it on Saturday 'cause I am a working class Joe with a college education still working six days a week. How Liberal! :D

I'd like to say congrats to all of the KC Players who made it to the tourney. A great showing from great people. Peter E., Jamie Barry, Pete C., Tim Becks, Steve Drew, Mark Stiles, James McLaughlin, and Tuscon transplant, Joe E. are all excellent ambassadors to not only KC but also disc golf in general.Forgive me if I forgot anybody.

The live broadcast was great! Crazy was superb in every way. Agreed that Dave was out-of-place on the commentary. Too many mistakes Crazy had to correct, and Dave was so biased for a couple of the players. On the other hand, it was nice to hear Crazy and Terry talk about relevant strategies and what the players have to consider when choosing shots. All in all, great for my first televised disc golf experience.

General Banter / Re: Discgolf in Budapest
« on: January 08, 2011, 11:12:19 am »
I had posted something about golf in other countries yesterday so I thought I would share some pics of some pretty good home made baskets in Hungary. I played 9 holes in December at one of the few permanent courses. Always great to see more disc golf. I am hoping to go back in August and play the other courses as I did four years ago.
The local cost of these baskets is low by our standards, but on the local economy they aren't cheap even for local fabrication. Pretty cool regardless.

Rosedale / Re: Rosedale Park Break-in
« on: January 07, 2011, 07:09:33 pm »
Agreed Jack! If you haven't played disc golf in other parts of the country or other countries, you have no idea how amazing it is here. 18 holes up top, 18 down, multiple pin settings, multiple tees, concrete pads, tee signs, Rosedale Home Owners, the Rosedale community at large, and dedicated players all make it anything but.
Look up ghetto, either the real meaning or our urban slang, and neither fits.

Tournaments / Re: 2011 ICE BOWL
« on: December 06, 2010, 09:07:43 pm »
I read this thread two days ago and gave it some thought. My initial reaction was a bit negative thinking why turn it into a two day event and why diminish the importance of the Sunday rounds. With a little thought, I can see the value in this format now.

If the point of the Ice Bowl is to a) show solidarity in our already awesome disc golf community b) enjoy the cold knowing the warmth is around the corner and c) raise money for our chosen charity, then how can we do that better?

350 - 400 plus for an Ice Bowl is incredible. I have consistently been amazed at the energy and true sense of community I have experienced while eating chili, staying warm, and putting on the best face for our sport. While it does get backed up, Rosedale seems to be very conducive for its LOCATION. Can we get the same draw or better over multiple days? Probably so. Dick and Jack both have good points about the comp. versus the party (In writing, I agreed with Jack and Dick at the same time).  ;)

My thinking is if we are trying achieve the three goals listed above, I bet we can do better. Like many players, I can't usually give my whole weekend to golf. One attractive thing about one day Ice Bowl is being able to show up no matter what and possibly throw it well. However, if it can only be Saturday, then so be it though I really like the Sunday fun.

The weather is out of hands. Does this make a better Ice Bowl? I think we can (as we already put on the biggest).  ;D

No wimps, no whiners.

I couldn't agree more with Chris and Kevin. Some of the best players are certanly not good teachers; however, paying to play with some of those players will teach you a lot if you pay attention. I would be willing to offer some tips to new players. While I am not in the leagues of Leo, CD, Bobby, Arturo, etc, I am far from bad at the game, and I am a teacher.  ;D

Rosedale / Re: Rosedale Park Break-in
« on: November 08, 2010, 08:01:36 pm »
This is a general FYI to everyone who plays Rosedale during daylight or night time hours. By the way, this is from the horse's mouth:
Last week, Steve and Peter Engelman along with Steve Drew were playing a glow round up top. When they got to hole 16, one player teed off, another teed off and blam! shotgun blast. A disc was literally shot out of the air by a resident. According to them, it was one of the people at the white house with the no trespassing sign, and a small shack built in back. Many times you can hear music or see a fire burning in the back yard. Needless to say, after that, they got the heck out of there.
This is incredibly disturbing, and while they haven't posted about it, I wanted to give fair warning. If you play glow at Rose (the park is open till 10 P.M.) and there is something fishy going on, call the police.
