I lost my 175g Grape Champion Ape left on Hole #4. Hit the left tree in the gap, I think it kept going but dove farther left into the tall grass? 2 ice cold beers for it's return.

I might still have mine if I didn't give it to Nailer or one of the guys, I will look just in case you can't find it, and If I have it I will give you mine or maybe accept a "trade" of some sort.

Utz said "Nards" and my mind went directly to that movie.

It was a tough hot night to play, but a very cool setup. What was Par for the course btw? I forgot to ask or look. Thanks MK for keeping the league fresh each week, you are an outstanding LD.

It's not "way out there" Steve, compared to P-Hill. It's off of the biggest highway in Kansas or Missouri, I-70.

Anyway... since negative train seems to keep choo-choo'ing along these forums, let me tell you why I cannot make it.

I have two kids under 6 and Friday for me is time to spend with the family. I too am married and tend to only make one league night a week, and this year Tuesdays seem to work best for me and the wife, so I've been going to SMPark. I do agree that Friday seems to be a more family outing sort of night, so maybe your demographic should cater more to the "Masters/Grandmasters" who's kids are older and are out doing their own thing on Friday Nights, or the "Young Gun's" who have yet to, or are not looking to start a family sometime soon.

For those who have never played Wy-Co, it really is a great layout. It has a few picturesque shots, a few tight holes, and some wide open bombs. It's a good mix of distance and terrain, but still forgiving to the "Am" player. Is it Cliff or WW? No, but it's definitely a disc course you should play more than once and I think you would enjoy it. Best of luck in recruiting more folks to come out and play, and if I ever get a free Friday evening I will make the "Oregon Trail" journey about 9 minutes down K-7 to visit from Olathe.

Found and Lost / Lost - 2013 City of Fountains White World

Hey Chucked my 2013 COF World on #15 PC (pin is short right) and have no clue where it went (left in the tall grass somewhere?).

If you find it I would appreciate it's return, If you have one and don't use it, I might want to purchase it off of you. It had the multi color, silver dollar size stamp on the top near the edge. Let me know. I do like the white although i think there were different colors given out that day.

Where you playing at this week Harold? I'm not a facebooker so if it's posted there im out of the loop.

Thanks for another great league night! Got done just in time before the sky dumped on us! I left an orange mini out there somewhere if anyone finds it let me know. I seem to be losing more mini's than disc's lately...i guess that's a good thing?

I agree Jack. The news just did a segment on how the amount of trees and green space there is in a neighborhood is directly correlated with the amount of violence or lack there of. The woman speaking was a Buddhist, and probably completely forgets the Heian period and Warring States period over in Japan (both filled with green space and violent Buddhists), but yes today most Buddhists are very friendly and non-violent.

People can call them "hood" courses all they want. This bratty JO-CO residing Olathean loves both of them, and plays them as often as he can. Thanks for all that you do Jack!

It was a great ace to witness Brad. Congrats!

Maybe you need to work on "over the water" more Nailer and let the other stuff alone for now.  ;)

He gets over the water fine in the winter....

They are aware of the programming possibilities with JoCo for certain.  We (KCFDC) have a long historical effort of working on development and plans for the courses there as well as success in their parks.  I know initially I believe myself and Jake were at the initial planning meetings for the 2020 plan-2002- (Heritage Park disc golf development to be included on the Master Plan-The course Scott is working on) and the current scenario of the disc golf course on SMP makes them very aware of the continued year round support the course receives.  They are aware of the growth we bring, and yesterday there was a clear indication of the acknowledgement that disc was high on the radar.  Many noticed as myself and Dirk were out throwing my discs on the golf course for certain.

Bottom line be positive in your communication with the goals.  Realization that the land available may not be enough to have a "championship length", but that is ok.  A well designed course that encourages participation at all levels is just as needed as the continuation of these "long" courses that deter the newer player from enjoying.

Not everyone wants to play on holes that average 350'-500'.  So the balance act of the land truly available for the use (if approved) plays a much more pivotal role in the size of the course, and ultimate the needs of the community.  I would venture to say that a smaller, challenging, well designed course can be just as advantageous in the neighborhood as a bomber course.

I agree Jack, I work for OP and live in south Johnson County, selfishly I just want a course close to work. Growing the game is more important for sure.

Although... since I am graduating with my BA in Business in May, anyone feel free to offer me a new career path that has an office next to WW or in Downtown so I can play Cliff at lunch. Might be open to Sporting offering me a Turf job as well near WyCo... balls in your court people!
