Cliff Drive / Re: Favorite Hole at CD
« on: October 08, 2010, 04:20:33 pm »
i like the turnover line to the left and use a star roc.  once you get by the first stuff with anny, you are golden and your roc will come back and be parked.

to me that seems like the best odds because if you hit anything early, you are to the left and can see the basket.  plus i know being on the right  can be terrible if you go down the ravine.

That sounds really cool.  I would like to know what type of feedback the players give.  It sounds like you get to use your own plastic and you get one tournament disc?  So, what is the rest of the money going to?  Are you playing for Cash payouts, merch, food/beverage?  It would be cool to play in an event where you can bring your overstable, stable, and understable discs Rocs or Buzzzes.

Also, here is a shoutout to Timko,  looks like he is on the  sponsor page.

The KCFDC is only ordering 72 packages and the order will be sent off today.  We would have liked to have more packages available, especially with the addition of 4-6 temp holes, but if you snooze you lose.   We are capping it at 72  to make sure we do not have extra ACE RACE player packs. 

We are two weeks away and the weather appears to be staying warm for the next couple weeks.  Come out and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather, enjoy a round playing in the scenic woods,  make some runs on ever so short ACE RUNS, enjoy some adult beverages/burger/brats, play some mini golf and enter games, and win yourself a new bag loaded with discs(that you can lose later playing on the long holes 7, 10, 17  ;D ).   

We are keeping the shots super short this year and taking into consideration that it is an overstable mid. Anyone can win it this year!

Dressing appropriately is  being professional and this is a professional event with good attendance.  What is wrong with looking nice every once in awhile?  Collared shirts are not that big of a deal.  Every person has a collared shirt in their closet and it is okay to bust one out for PDGA events. 

A pig is a pig.  However, we know that many politicans are pigs, even when they are all dressed up in their big money suits but they are just playing the part.  It is called the PDGA for a reason not HDGA-Hippie Disc Golf Association.  Sports can have folks from all walks of life be participants and diversity is what makes disc so great.   But image and public opinion is everything in the business world and look sharp for an event is not that big of deal.

We need to get the players packs ordered by this friday. So if you have not signed up, or know someone who is going to play and hasn't signed up. Please let them know to do so. That way everyone who wants to play gets in and also so that we do not order to many extra players packs.. Thank you..

We are setting up a sweet course and this will be a great end of the year event.  Eric is absolutely correct about pre registering.  If we get a bunch of pre regs this week, there is a chance that the club might increase the number of player packs to above 72.  However, 72 is the magic number unless we get more sign ups this week.  We hate to turn folks away, but that is a possbility for procrastination.  We have at least 4 good extra holes and possibly 6.  Plus games between rounds, adult beverages, and food.

Not sure about the discs.  I believe Eric mentioned $2 for 1 mully or $10 for 6 mullys.   I will also be grilling up some food for lunch so do not worry about traveling between rounds.

It sounds like a good time. I think I am finally going to give the Ace Race a shot.

You should.  Eric and myself are designing a course that will offer high probability for ACES.  After all, it is called the ACE RACE and that is our goal.  This event should be fair to all skills and level the playing field.

Eric and myself are experimenting with some additional holes ideas.  We will more than likely add  additional holes to the course.  This way you get more bang for your buck, shorter holes will transition better from one to the next, and this will enable you to see more groups of players, more baskets, and more ACES.  We have soom really cools ideas and a sweet course set up.

It will be a great time and we wil have an abundance of short shots so all skills levels will be able to compete.

General Banter / Disc Golf Intramural BSSHS
« on: September 29, 2010, 01:13:53 pm »
Disc Golf will soon be an official school club at Blue Springs South HS.  The AD has given permission to move forward.  We will soon be working on our mission statement and getting our paper work finalized.  I will be the club's school sponsor and we will meet at Young Park.

This is a big moment for disc golf in EJC.  We have infiltrated that elementary schools, but now we are treading new waters. 

I can see at Blue Valley vs Blue Springs intramural tournament in the future.  The MO-KAN Disc Shoot Out.
Blue Valley has a course near their school and i would imagine that a club will form at some point.

Eric did a great job stepping up and running league.  He was there every week and  has done a good job fulfilling his league obligations. 

Thanks for volunteering your time.

Mr. Parker,
I want to thank you for running the CC.   There has been  good points and personal opinions offered for courses chosen. 

KC is a sweet place to live and i am thankful to have problems like which courses to play.  I will be a fun weekend of FREE GOLF!  How sweet is that?

John,

i would like to get my hands on all the star destroyers.  Not sure if you can hold them, but if you can i will come down now or next week when they go on sale.  if you could PM me about when those destroyers go that would be appreciated.  i lose a lot discs at Young in the water so i like the cheaper ones.  plus like them beat up.

thanks
John

Smithville / Re: 60 Basket Order Goes To...
« on: September 23, 2010, 12:05:03 pm »
i have seen the Mach V spit numerous times if you hit low center on the chains.  However, i have seen them swallow up many field aces and an ace. 

I am curious about stats for short and long distance spit outs for different baskets.  Many perfer one basket over another.   But for the baskets that people perfer for catching putts, are they just as good for catching field aces or aces? 

Is there a basket that is able to have some give for a lazer blast drives but can still grab/hold and not spit out  good solid putts?

I wish the Mach III came powder coated more often than for just fund raisers.

Old Pike / Re: Objects for display at Old Pike
« on: September 21, 2010, 01:06:57 pm »
i was playing there and brought my wife.  she nevers plays so i am telling her to aim here or there.  on one hole she was close to the water so i had her aim away from the water.  She throws it and it was going right for the water which resulted in a race me against the disc.  i managed to get it before it got too wet. 

i got family in clearwater and at their elementary school they have gators nearby.  that makes for a bad day of kickball when the gator eats your kickball.
