Tournaments / Re: Old Settlers Open 2013 - August 31st

I do enjoy playing Birdland, only thing I really don't like are the handful of tweener holes out there. Need to shorten a few or stretch them out another hundred feet and call them par 4's. Hole 1 is a great opening hole!

 Well ran event and seemed that everything went off without a hitch...!

#14 comes to mind as a tweener. You'd need a 550 foot hyzer bomb to get a 2, but it's a really easy 3 with just a hyzer and an upshot.

The guy in the video has no follow through and the video is not an entertaining way to learn how to play. 

Best bet is to go to youtube, type in PDGA, and press enter.  Watch these videos.  These are the world's best. 

Enjoy.

Actually the Beato video is how I learned how to do an x-step. The video isn't perfect but I like how he starts from a 1-step approach, then 2-steps, then a full x-step.

That's how I learned how to do an x-step after playing almost 3 years of disc golf without it.

Summer Leagues / Re: What's going on with the lack of information?

As for Shawnee Mission League-

1. Yes, league has been happening for the last few months, although I was lazy about posting scores. My fault. I have mostly been updating the spreadsheet, however, and am just a tad behind on depositing money, but otherwise on track.

2. As of August, I haven't been able to get off work early enough to run league, so Steve Thimmesch has been filling in until league ends for the fall anyways. Steve has always been my go-to guy for running league if I was unable, and he's a tremendous help whenever I need help moving baskets or doing other random small jobs around the course (although Parks and Rec does most of these things themselves anyways).

3. For next year, I'd certainly be interested in staying on as both Course Coordinator and League Director for SMP; it's something I've enjoyed doing and I like being able to help out. As I mentioned before about Parks and Rec, I don't have as many responsibilities as CCs at other courses (P&R empties the trash and mows regularly, handles maintenance on baskets/signs for the most part, and they're very particular about doing any other physical improvements to the course themselves), but I like to be able to help the little that needs to be done. By next year, my work schedule should mostly back to normal and I'll be able to be there to run league.

4. Otherwise, I don't have much to add to the conversation about how leagues are run and how to improve such. I'm young and still pretty new to all of this, so I'm just on board to do my part. Once everyone figures out what is best for the leagues in the future, I'll be glad to participate however I can.


As a bit of a side note as well for next year, Rob Martin had shown interest in helping make SMP a PDGA League, which I (and many who I talked to) thought would be a great idea, and would surely help boost numbers at a very small league. Unfortunately time kind of ran short this summer/fall and there weren't enough weeks left to accommodate. I'd look forward to, early next year, do 10 weeks of PDGA League at SMP (probably once the days got long enough for 6PM starts). Not to jump the gun on those kinds of details for next year, just throwing it out there.

Up to 949.

Next update will include Run for the Roses and the MAC. Played poorly at the former but well at the latter, should cancel out.

Wait are we really playing #12 at WW on the Peninsula? Throwing over #18s green essentially?

That's really dumb and unsafe.

I think that the distances for #1 and #2 are off.  I don't think that there is a 200' placement on #2.... ;D

That's what I was thinking. I assume he means the first one on top of the hill?

Yeah practically every pin was short on Saturday.
