General Banter / Re: No Disc Golf carts?
« on: Today at 09:30:10 am »
I like to think of disc golf as a form of exercise.  Using a cart really defeats that purpose.

Ditto.

I've used a motorized golf cart at Municipal in Emporia to play disc golf.  I found it to not be worth it.  Carts are to remain on the cart path.  By the time you walk to your disc, walk back to the cart, etc., you are not saving that much walking.

Wha?  That's funny. Thanks for pointing that out.

If you haven't been out to play this course, you should. It's amazing.

I've played 144 courses in 17 states.  It is in my personal top 5 favorite courses.

Goodie bag with swirly mini, sticker and pencil.

If you register on line before Monday, March 28, 2016, you will be assured of getting a shirt of the size you choose.  After that, correct shirt size is not certain.

Special thank you to Scott Oswalt for the great design work and putting up with my need to tweak stuff.  Thanks Scott!

"USAF, Makani, and Firebirds, OH MY!" ;)

A MP tourney aka "Must Play"indeed. 

I still a'wonder about this upcoming "hobble, hobble, hobble" tourney. Tom has a gun? 

Does PDGA have a conceal 'n carry clause? ;)

wha?

In addition to normal player pack (for Ams), ALL players, PRO AND AM, that pre-register by Thursday, March 3rd will receive a brand new release from Innova Discs - the Makani. The Makani is not even approved yet by the PDGA, or even on the Innova website it is so new.

Innova's description of it:

Quote
MAKANI / NEW!
The Makani is a fun new lightweight large diameter disc for
all sports. The Makani was designed with versatility in mind.
Whether you want to play a casual game of catch on the beach, a
pick-up game of Ultimate in the park, or even a round of disc golf,
the Makani is ready to fly for you.
Diameter: 24.1 cm
Makani Sport disc 140 GRAMS


So, what is it? If you know what a Te Moko is, it is *incredibly* similiar in mold, without the ridges on top that the Te Moko has. Unlike the Te Moko, the Makani light weight, so it is more suited for playing catch with a person or possibly a dog. Sometimes I see players playing catch before rounds to warm up. The few I weighed were right at 144 grams.

Why the Makani? 

When I approached Innova about being the title sponsor for this event, I requested a player pack item that was a bit unusual. Something other than the typical golf disc, or shirt.

Lots of pictures can be found here:

It may be easier to read if there was a space / paragraph break in between months.

Adding a cool item this year.  In addition to CTPs, win card, etc., there will be these Hot Round minis.

They are not for sale. The only way you can get one is at a Maverick DG tournament and have a hot round for your division. Not win your card, but the hot round for the whole division, Pro or Am. They will be available only for divisions that meet the 4-player PDGA minimum. If for some reason round 1 and round 2 are set up different (different course, different pin locations, etc.) then it will be the hot score for the first found only. I expect to give away 6-10 per tournament for the most of 2016. 

Quite a bit of variety from Zing Mini Discs.
