I guess anyway it goes in  :o That's what she said ;D

Probably no golf in Amsterdam proper. The city is very small, but Harlem or Rotterdam are better bets. The PDGA website is only so reliable. Only one of the three courses in hungary is listed there, so take it for what it is worth. I'll send a report on the 30th. I am planning to play one of the new courses then.
And hey Merry Christmas to KC disc golfers, you guys make it unbelievably good.
Over and out, ROger, Roger,

Hey KC golfers!
I am super happy to report there is permanent DG in Hungary now. Actually the sport is growing like mad in Central Europe. the last time I was here there was only one temp course on an island in the Danube. Now they have a club, tourneys, they are on the Austro Hungarian tour and it seems to be taking off  :D
I don't recommend coming here in the winter but a summer trip and you would not be disaappointed. There is a lot more to do than just golf, but hey we have to play golf too, right?
Here is the  their page in  English

http://www.disc-golf.hu/index.php?pageid=100&lang=2

Check it out. It is the beginnings of the sport in Eastern Europe, gotta love it!

Report from abroad, over and out!
Eric

I hate to toot my own horn, :P ::) but I still can't believe this one. Last Sunday, yours truly nailed 14 at Water Works. It was in the short  position (397') and was a sight to behold. Nobody said a word, in fact we were in relative disbelief for a few minutes. I am still a little blown away. It sure felt amazing. Luckily I had some newer players with me (3 witnesses) . I think that will keep em coming back!  ;D

Old Red Beard comes form Erie, Penn., so 3 inches is what he is hoping for (don't take that the wrong way). I'm guessing the first snow to stick will be enough. For the past 4 years we have done a "first snow" round, usually involves copious amounts of whiskey, a snow ball fight, and the fine art of disc tracking.   
Guinness Smurf aka Red Beard, arrange the snow to fall on a night I am not teaching. I would hate to miss one of these. Gonna be a good time!

Don't forget, sandbagger is, in effect, a compliment. So be it, I am the E-hole you are the bagger  :P

I just sent  a request to Loomis to get me out of MA2 and into MA1. I have lost this tourney by too few strokes in the past to remain there 8) Nobody's gonna call me a palmer, uh, I mean bagger.  :o

I have gotta put a word out for Jon Robertson, non PDGA or KCFDC, but a local player. This guy has improved so much in one year. For example, on Friday he nailed 7 down under (his first ace)! then yesterday, Saturday, he shot a laser beam into 18 down under. Two aces in two days! His first two! that's hot! Needless to say, we will be down under again today to see if he can go 3 for 3! Aces do tend to come in streaks.
YOU ARE AWESOME JON AND YES, i STILL OWE YOU 5! :o

So who won? 

The guy neck deep in celebration! I didn't play either but sure sounds like you guys had a good time. Our community is leaps and bounds the best! In golf terms we are way under par.

General Banter / Stolen Mach Lite portable Sep. 19 at Swope
« on: September 21, 2009, 05:33:31 PM »
Reposting this from another board hoping to hear something through the grapevine.

Someone stole my blue and white Mach Lite portable from the picnic table shot shortly after the Ace Race. Pretty much a only a total DB would do this, so if you hear of anything or see one posted somewhere for sale w/o carrying case and flag, please let me know. I have had some luck recovering stolen items before. Karma can be instant, or it can take some time.
Thanks,

Tim and EMan - great time!!! can't wait for the next one!

Greatest throw catch of the day that got him nothing - Joe E while warming up for the MTA!
The disc had to be airborne for at least 10 seconds, then he lays out for a diving one handed catch in the outfield!
It was crazy!
Yeah Mike "BEATLE" Bailey won the event with 2 aces...both in the 2nd round...Cashen, Timko, Andy Lewis, Jack, and several others (sorry can't think of em rite now) hit one ace a piece. 

There were 9 aces all together ..2 of which were NOT in the ace fund so the other 7 took home $55 a piece.

Beatle was the big winner of the day taking home 2/7 ths of the ace fund and the grand prize of 10 premium Discraft discs and a bag.

THANKS to all who participated in this event.  W/O the playas it would not have been the success it was.

KC DISC GOLF ROCKS!

BTW I want to say a big thanks to:  SLIM JIM Neal ( a HUGE thanks for taking care of the generator), Rick and Disc Golf World, EMAN for co-TDing, CD for donations, Vita Water for the cases of water, Pete Engleman (as usual..the guy is TOP NOTCH), Tyrone for spinn' the records, Ryan and Jon for running the MTA contest, anyone else i'm forgetting, and all the PLAYAS...

Dave, Joe did take home an Ultimate Disc for his awesome effort at MTA and retrieving discs during the distance shot.


And the final results on aces Mike Bailey*, Chris Timko*, Andy Lewis*, Jeremy Cranfill, Luke Henry*, Rick Rothstein, Pete Cashen*, Jack Lowe*, Tim Moeller, and yours truly, Eric Kolkmeier all hit aces on Saturday! We rock guys good job.  8) (* indicates Big bOy Ace fund)

A number of players hit metal 3 times, a few four times, and two, Dan Quinn and Crazy John, five times.
 
Yes, Thanks to all the players who made this awesome. This is just gonna get better, it was KC's first and now KC can make this better. As many of you have noted this doesn't need to be a Discraft event. So this may happen again sooner than you think. In short, everyone was positive, we had rave reviews on the course, and you guys made this so much fun.

A million thanks to everyone again!
Yes, big thanks to Jim Neil for making the generator hassle, less hassle for us. We owe you one, big time.

P.S. The only negative thing was someone, a disc golfer I presume, stole  my blue and white Mach Lite portable basket off the picnic table on hole 19. It conveniently disappeared after the second round was over. If anyone should hear of anything or see any posts on CraigsList,etc. please let me know. I have got the carrying case and the flag and would love to reunite them with the basket. Any info 816 510 0510, I can be as discreet or indiscreet as needed.

The course is awesome! We played some of it tonight while flagging and marking the holes. I hit chains once and stuck one from about 180 feet out (Timko said something about it being one of the harder shots  ;)). The disc is faster than the Wizard, not as stable, but flies very true. Just took a couple throws to get the feel for it. We overthrew a couple without trying to hard, so I think everyone has a chance at hitting an ace.

So if we get there at 9, will we be able to warm up with the focus'? Get used to them and stuff?

Sure you can get warmed up. This is a rolling start though. So once you have got 4,5,6 players on a card, we'll send you out. Just would like to get players out by 10ish to ensure lots of time for games and such between and get in the second round by 1:30 -2ish. Looking forward to it!

Doh! Did I ever mention random doubles afterwards. Five bucks a man, playing tee pads to numbered flags. Ace Race will finish early, so if you can stay, play!
