IFF this is anything like the Clinton Lake course from a few years ago...your cardmates will want to take turns spotting.

Clinton Lake was playable only after they did a prairie burn.  But now that the baskets are taken down because some were stolen....it's not even that.

After the 54 Hole Smithville extravanga, I was wondering how much pep this old fart would have left for 2 rounds on Sunday.
Glad to know we can possibly do a 1-rounder.

Are there official 'Park Hours'?  Is there a locked gate?

I'll be there as close to 8am as I can.  It's 75 miles from my house, I'll have to leave home earlier than I do for work M-F.  I do want to start early though as I need to get back for a party that night.

So I went on a trip to Charlotte, NC 10/4 to 10/13.  I played 13 courses in 6 states including the IDGC (PDGA headquarters, Winthrop Gold and Hornet's Nest) and visited my mom, family and went to a wedding.

Anyways, I stayed at a MS State Park near Tupelo, MS on the way out.  While checking in when I gave my address information to the park ranger, he said, 'you just came from the place where the massacred happened.'

Thinking he was talking current events (another school shooting - I was out of the media loop), I was shocked and asked him for the details.

'That's the place where Quantrill killed all those Yankees!' (verbatim).

Yes, sir, I am in the deep south, aren't I.

Come to find out the guy was actually pretty decent.  He just read about the 150 year anniversary of the raid and was surprised to see an actual Lawrencian come to visit him.  To bad I left John Brown at home with gun and Bible.

Lawrence is fine.  Not sure about the golf today though.

I work Friday, 10/18.
Saturday, morning or afternoon is fine.  Afternoon would probably be a bit nicer weather wise.

522
Lets do this!

Lake Perry . . . 10am?  Saturday.

What day?
10/18 is Friday.
Referencing Saturday.

Better yet - include some LED's in the player's pack.
Or a glow disc itself (althought they are hard to see in my opinion).

"illegally modified discs"


Glow lights can be legally used in the situations of decreased daylight.

Question: Can only PDGA Approved glow discs be used for sanctioned play in the dusk and dark?

Answer: The PDGA office has approved a blanket waiver so any PDGA Approved disc may be used with glow stick or LED light attached, preferably to the underside of transparent discs, after sunset in your time zone. In addition, LED lights taped to PDGA Approved discs can be used during daylight specifically when there is sufficient snow cover on the course and the LED might make the disc easier to locate. Non-PDGA Approved discs such as those with built-in LED lights cannot be used at any time during sanctioned play.



I think we should push this after dark.  How cool would that be?!
