General Banter / Re: Destroyer Discussion
« on: March 17, 2015, 11:37:50 am »
I finally broke down and started throwing destroyers because everyone claimed they were the best controllable distance driver you could find. 

Funny you should say it like that and it goes to show that there's all kinds of differing opinions on the matter. I wish I could remember who it was we were playing with at Water Works one day a few years ago (I'm not good with the names of all the touring pros). Anyway, I was throwing Destroyers at the time and this touring pro we were playing with suggested I switch to the Wraith because it is much more controllable than the Destroyer. Of course, I'm sure this is all relative to one's skill level and that may have been his line of thinking after watching me throw, which can be downright laughable at times. ;D

General Banter / Re: Courses you never played before

It's always nice revisiting a thread like this. Let's renew it by going through which courses you have yet to play in order of the desire to play them. How lucky are we to have so many choices.
This thread is four years old so you newbies start from the biginning to catch a small glimpse of disc golf history.
Courses I want to play but have yet to do so:
Liberty
Yates Elementary
Perry Lake
Smithville all 3 courses
Pleasant Ridge Middle School
Baldwin City Lake
Clinton Lake
Melvern Lake
English Landing
Parkville church camp
Jesse James Park, Atchison and MWSU tie
Clover Dell
Last ones because of distance
I hope everyone enjoys me bringing this back up.

Liberty and Kearney are both fun courses, and you definitely need to get up to Smithville.
Yates isn't what it used to be, IMO, as not only did they wreck #1 by fencing it off from where the tee used to be on the sidewalk, but the school has done a piss-poor job of maintaining the course.
English Landing is great for practice because it's open and flat. But it's hella boring. Only thing remotely entertaining is the fact that it's on the river, and you might see some Parkville MILFs or college skanks in yoga pants walking the track when the weather's nice. ;D
Don't think I've been to any of the other courses you listed. Also haven't been to Lakewood or whatever it's called, the one that used to be a ball golf course in Johnson County.

Wizards have a great feel in the hand and hold a line well, but on missed putts they sure like to kick up and roll away.

Sounds like a fun day at the park! Were they using proper hearing/eye protection, I hope?

Merry Christmas to those that celebrate. Happy belated channukah to my tribal peeps. Happy kwanzaa to those that celebrate made up that bullsh1t holiday because Christmas was just too "white" for them. Happy Yule. Etc etc

FTFY and is there any particular reason why we're discussing those other holidays and "holidays" on Christmas, and in a Christmas thread? I sure hope this is not new KCFDC policy.  ???

Dude, all I see is a little blue box with a "?", but yeah, don't feed 'em!

It all started out as a simple troll attempt. Problem was, the troll attempt succeeded far more than I could've anticipated. ;D

By the way, Mike, can you please introduce yourself to me? Not so I can get into your face or your business but so I can subsequently avoid you? I don't need the bad juju rubbing off on me. I have brown hair, usually wearing glasses, green eyes and carry a DD bag.

LOL, big surprise there.

But I am also the dick choker who believe in treating people with respect.  Especially women.   Especially when it involves a positive idea to benefit those less fortunate. 

Meh, I don't care for social workers or anyone who uses their otherwise-useless occupation as an excuse to pry into other peoples' business.

Look at you with the white knighting. Isn't that sweet...

Look there's nothing I or anyone has ever said on here that leads to less volunteering. People might use it as a convenient excuse (one that I'm happy to provide, BTW) but the truth is they arent volunteering because they don't feel like it and that's the end of it. The ones that get out and volunteer do so no matter what someone posts on a message board. The ones that use what's posted on a message board as an excuse not to volunteer can choke on a bag of dicks anyway.

People love to play the lottery (think ace fund) but are pissy about a voluntary donation to charity?

Did you miss the part where Mother Teresa over here suggested that the "charity" be tacked on in such a manner so that the entrants would be unaware of it? Yeah, that sounds voluntary like a MFer. ::)

Looked again.  Still don't see it.  I see her say voluntary several times though.

The post in question was edited.

General Banter / Re: Local ponds at coures.

Rule 1.  If it's not your disc, it's not your disc.
Rule 2.  If it's marked as someone else's disc, it's not your disc.
Rule 3.  If all  reasonable attempts to return the disc that is not your disc and marked as someone else's disc which you found have failed, it is now your disc.

The clown snagging your disc from the pond violated/skipped Rules 1 and 2.  He then attempted to sell it for monetary gain which could be considered a criminal act because the property was essentially lost/stolen.  Granted there is potential for he said/she said yet at the very least he should be labeled a crook and reported to eBay as well as blackballed in disc golf community.

The people that have been caught selling lost/found discs typically do get shunned/blackballed in the disc golf community. But at the same time, they often aren't the types that play events or show up at club functions anyway, so they probably don't care about being shunned or blackballed.

Bottom line, if you don't want to see your disc end up on eBay or craigslist, don't leave it at the park. If you decide to give up your search or decide not to dive into a pond after your disc, of course you would hope the person that finds it would return it to you. But you should also be prepared to accept that the person that finds it might not return it to you.
