Tournaments / Re: Mighty Shunga Open September 20-21
« on: August 19, 2014, 04:27:50 PM »
There was some issues with Shunga last spring (discussed on Topeka's facebook page).  I wasn't sure if the city was going to let them use it again or not.  I was hoping for confirmation from LS Discs.

Winter Leagues / Re: September and/or October Wednesday glow?

I would be interested in a course like SMP.   PC would work ok if you played from a temp pad after 12 to 14's basket and then added a temp hole between 16 and 17.

Granted I have never played a glow round before, but would those $3 solar power path lights work to stick in the basket.  They put off a decent amount of light and would only cost $54 once and be reusable.

I like both of these ideas. 

What do others' think?

For me, Blue Springs is a jaunt.  Takes me 70 minutes to get home from there.
Legacy is not too bad.

Forgot about P. Hill - dough!

Can you confirm which courses will be used?

Crestview - gold or regular?
Lake Shawnee
LS South?
Big Shunga?

I do not want to side rail this thread.  But there is a related thread started about continuing Wednesday league as a glow league.  Go here to read / comment:

Winter Leagues / September and/or October Wednesday glow?
« on: August 19, 2014, 09:17:11 AM »
Wanting to gauge interest in September and/or October Wednesday glow as a continuation of Wandering Wednesday. 

This may or may not be necessarily wandering.  I'm more concerned about which courses lend themselves to setting up glow easily.

Originally I was thinking of taking a short break in September and doing just a 4-week mini-series in October.  However if there is a lot of interest, I would consider just moving straight into a 4-7 week glow series ending no later than October 29th. 

Cost would be:

$3 - payout - normal KCFDC league payout schedules
$1 - club
$1 - cover glow equipment.  If / when enough money was collected this $1 would stop being collected.  It may be a situation where we just don't collect one week, or where we stop collecting for the rest of the series, etc.  I would buy some higher quality glow sticks from Amazon instead of the cheap crap from Dollar General.  The models I was looking at were nearly $1 per stick.
$1 - Optional Ace Fund.  Would consider rolling the PDGA league ace fund through this glow series.

For courses options:

WyCo - I like how the baskets are close to the road so someone can drive around in a car and place glow sticks on before the round starts.

Rosedale - seems to be an easy glow course, but what makes me hesitant is how busy this course is.

Swope - I like Swope, but Swope at night makes me nervous.

SMP - I think glow here would be really fun, but I really dispise their strong stance on no alcohol and nazi like approach to dogs and leashes.

PC - little leary, back 9 would be a pain to find a disc if it went into the woods at night.

We would start at 6pm.

As info, Sept 10 sunset is 7:35.  October 29 sunset is 6:21.

General Banter / Topeka courses updates
« on: August 15, 2014, 05:42:03 PM »
Ran into Mitch Bonjour at Lake Shawnee today.  He said that Crestview is getting an overhaul after the mowing season this fall.  All new Mach X baskets, new larger tee pads and new pins (the underground kind with a water cap).  It is running about $3K per hole.

The Crestview baskets will then be moved to replace Lake Shawnee's baskets, some of which were home made back in the 80's. 

Lake Shawnee's baskets will replace the ones at Rice Park.

Good stuff.

I'm like a PDGA rule geek.

http://www.pdga.com/faq/leagues/is-it-true-players-can-drink-flip-discs-for-marking-and-allow-gimmes-in-league-play


PDGA rules must be followed in leagues just as they are in regular tournament play. The one exception allowed for league play is players of legal age may drink during rounds if the park rules allow alcohol to be consumed on the course. However, please drink in moderation since courtesy rules can be enforced to penalize unruly behavior.

Insert funny comment here.

Coke has a plant in Atlantic Ia. They sponsor the tournament in their town.
