I'm not a great golfer.  My rating is 828 for perspective.  I'm also 42 yrs old.

However, I really like challenging courses.  I'm not afraid of BV.  I just know I'm going to get a really, really high score.

The only thing I don't like is when I HAVE to carry 300' of water.  I can make it on a good/great day, but not every day.

I may be a bit unusual, and competitive in spite of my (in)abilities, but I don't think all casual / rec players are afraid of long holes.

Wasn't calling anyone out, just providing instruction for all.
When I took the Official's Exam, I got some wrong too.

Out-of-bounds relief became an issue with my card Sunday morning at Frostbreaker.  Bumping thread to bring a visual aid to the discussion we had.

This is meant to be a friendly reminder as to two out-of-bounds rules.  Not busting nuts, just improving knowledge for all.

802.03 D

If the position of the thrown disc is in-bounds but within one meter of an out-of-bounds line, the lie may be marked by placing a mini marker disc on the playing surface at any point on a one-meter line that extends perpendicularly from the nearest point on the out-of-bounds line and passes through the center of the thrown disc, even if the direction takes the lie closer to the target. For the purpose of marking the lie, the out-of-bounds line represents a vertical plane.


804.04 D

A player whose disc is out-of-bounds shall receive one penalty throw. The player may elect to play the next throw from:

The previous lie; or,

A lie that is up to one meter away from and perpendicular to the point where the disc last crossed into out-of-bounds, even if the direction takes the lie closer to the target; or,

Within the designated drop zone, if provided.

The lie can only go towards the basket if it is perpendicular to the out-of-bounds line, the line itself being out-of-bounds.
...
The conversation ensued as to what 'perpendicular' meant.



Construction of the perpendicular (blue) to the line AB through the point P.

Perpendicular is determinable both on a straight line and a curved line.

Again, not busting balls, but increasing our understanding of the game's rules.

Thanks

How much snow fell last night over near SMP?
Here in Lawrence we got nearly 2", a bit surprising.
Good idea to bring lots of extra towels tallguy

728
Planning ahead a bit, I'll probably be going to Emporia Friday, March 15th to play Peter Pan 2x, or PP and Jones West.

I personally like it when other's people freedom to harm me are taken away.

I especially like it though when those that can't say F off and be on their way are protected by having someone else's freedom taken away.

Such as, taking away:
...other peoples freedom to harm their spouses,
...or their freedom to harm their own children,
...or their freedom to use people against their will that are stuck in human trafficking,
...or their freedom to harm public property that my taxes paid for,
...or their freedom to yell stupid stuff in a public room,
...or their freedom to blow up public buildings,
...or their freedom carry 3" blades on airplanes,
...or their freedom use my social security number and Visa numbers to acquire what they desire without my permission,
...or their freedom to view naked underage boys and girls,
...or their freedom to drive 40 MPH in a residential neighborhood that has a lot of children riding bicycles on a spring day



I could go on forever, shall I continue?

I'm not a cop lover.  In fact when I was 20 I was pulled over, walked the line and patted down because I flipped off a cop while by girlfriend (now wife) was driving so I wouldn't drive my own car drunk (true story).  However, I have respect for police officers.  Maybe you should too.

I knew that would ruffle a dirty feather.

Mike P has been handing out trash bags for course clean-up....I bet the club would be more than happy to supply the bags!!

Definately a great idea!!

Except PC.  I'm not cleaning PC.  They do have an overfunded parks department (at least that's what it seems like from previous postings).

typically group rounds take 3 hours or more.
this leaves 30 minutes at best to grab a lunch.
