P.S. - Just to poke at Jack and Mike..this thread is about to break 6 times as many views as the work day thread has....not really something to joke about though I guess.

Izzawlgood, enjoying the E vs W trash talk anyway.

I believe though that this would be your first rated round there Mr. Keizer......

The more serious players might like that stuff and care about that stuff, but I don't get why it can't be optional.

I'm still trying to figure out what the extra $1 on the entry fee was for. Felt like regular old Cliff Drive league to me, complete with my typical sh1tty back 9 performance. Can we opt out of the PDGA part of it next time? I'd much rather put that dollar toward a truck taco on the way home.

No, I wont be, and I get that Tom, and I also realize that at this point we have been working on the course for over 13 years to make it happen.  I was walking through the course last night thinking about all the downed trees in the park, the trees that have been removed, the trees I could see dying, and I want to change it so that we are always enjoying some of the wonderful nestled woods.

I don't live by any illusion, because when we started Cliff Drive we had: Swope, Rosie Top/Bottom, WaterWorks, and Olathe to play.  WyCo came on about the time that we started at Cliff, but it needed much less work than Cliff did.  Now with close to 40 places to play within 25 miles of Cliff, how do you attract that dedicated soul to help with the work needed to muster change, and make it better?  They feel that entitlement in their "local" course.  We are growing more than we should no courses, and not enough on people realizing that work is needed.  Many still think that P&R do all the work.

It will take years of our efforts and partnerships with others to make this what I think will be one of the best 2 course disc golf complexes available, but once it is there, people will remember the work they did, or the work they observed in order to play the courses.

I know there were a great deal of work days before I came along in '06/'07, but the two that stick out for me are the one where we were preparing for concrete pads, and the one a couple years ago when we hit the LDO party area real hard. They were large enough to warrant good folks coming out and cooking hotdogs on the grill for everyone, or Jack walking into Gates BBQ and answering "21 BEEF ON BUNS!" before the door had even closed and before the girl behind the counter could finish with her "Hi, may I help you!"
When you've seen what can happen when people from all over town come together for a common goal, it's hard not to get frustrated when subsequent efforts aren't as successful.

Now then, this weekend of the 18th, I seem to remember the wife and I having something planned for that day. I shall find out from her what the deal is, and if there's nothing going on then I will absolutely be there with my little green truck and we shall kick all kinds of trash.

Just an observation that I found a little sad, all thus is just from our forum.

Mike - If you're going to be a dick, then post somewhere else.  Maybe comments like this are the reason people are not in a hurry to help out with work days you organize.  I'm becoming less and less inclined to help out with Cliff Drive because of bullsh1t attitude like this.

Hey Rob, since you blocked my reply to your private message, I have to post it here, in the beer thread. Anyway, I'm happy to have provided you with an excuse for not attending work days you weren't planning on attending anyway.

Love, Mike.

It's amazing when someone feels the need to judge a person’s opinion....I had the same thing happen with Rob on the cost of worlds.    Rob, condescending and disrespectful remarks are probably more of a hindrance than an opinion.

To be fair, Rob and I have never met and I can understand why he might think I was being a dick with my post. It does kinda read like I was being a dick. But just so Rob knows, I'm only messing around and making fun of beer snobs-- I still love those beer snobs I'm making fun of and there's no harm or malice intended whatsoever.

Good beers at GBO this weekend.  They had a Firkin on Saturday that was a Halcyon Wheat with additional Columbus & Cascade dry hopped and some bitter orange peel.
Then on Sunday they were pushing Halcyon through a Randal (hop back) with Cascade hops and a sliced up grapefruit.  Very tasty.

Ya know, I enjoy a nice craft beer as much as the next guy (I'd tell you my favorite beer but you've probably never heard of it, that's how obscure it is and that's how cool and interesting I am), but that sounds like an awful lot just for some beer. I mean, pushing perfectly good beer through hops and adding fruit and sh1t? Fvck all that.

Anymore it's like someone comes out with a new craft beer, then that beer gets popular enough to where more than 12 people have tried it and heard of it, so now someone has to come up with a new beer that no one's heard of so people can think they're cool by drinking that one instead of the one from a month ago. I swear these people walk around with the label oriented outward, with the hopes that someone will notice and ask them what kind of beer they're drinking. Once that happens, the guy with the beer has accomplished his goal of seeming cool and interesting, and the guy who asked is headed to the obscure craft beer store to buy that brand so he can do the label-outward thing himself and seem cool and interesting with his social circle. FYI people also employ this same method with indie music.

Cliff Drive / Just another muddy Monday (4/15)

What's the game plan for this evening? Will the immaculately-manicured grounds at Cliff Drive be spared from foot traffic once again, or will league be commencing as scheduled?

Found and Lost / LOST: Orange soft cooler @ Swope
« on: April 11, 2013, 02:55:30 pm »
Left my orange soft cooler/lunchbox on the Swope clubhouse porch the other night. There was no beer left in it but it is still a handy cooler. If anyone has seen it, please let me know. Thanks!

I took a "12" on #12 during Cliff Drive league once, through a combination of road OBs and going all the way down the hill to the right. IIRC, it was a drive OB, another OB from DZ, then a pissed-off lefty hyzer throw from DZ that went high and blew to the bottom of the hill, several attempts to get back up the hill that hit trees and rolled back down, then finally a successful throw to get up the hill that overshot the fairway and went back OB, then a missed OB putt, then finally a hole out. Yes, it was infuriating.
Player's Cup on hole 1. The strokes didn't count so I Tin Cupped the approach shot.

The hole was a huge drive to a lay up area. Then you could either play safe and go the long way around, or pump a huge hyzer shot over the OB and try to drop it on the well-protected green. I opted for the latter. My first drive (1) landed perfectly at the lay up area. Approach attempt 1 (2) missed. So did attempts 2 (4), 3 (6), 4 (8), 5 (10), 6 (12), 7(14), but I made it on attempt 8 (16). I then missed my putt (17) and had a drop in for an 18. Mr. Williams, already pissed off took a 4 and won the hole. I never conceded the hole to him and that pissed him off more than the amount of time it took me to reach the green.

Hmm, should I not help staff the WO this year, and spend my time heckling that Williams dude instead? I could video it.

Mike, you have got some funny posts.    I can hear Mike now saying,  " Hey Williams, you suck Jackass" and "nice shooting soldier"  "just send it home, are you to good for your home, go home".

After much thought and careful consideration, I don't think heckling Mr. Williams or even talking to him at all would be necessary. Rather, I think simply following him closely while video recording with my phone may elicit the Youtube moment we're looking for. If he asks why I'm following him and recording video with my phone, I'll just pretend to be a deaf mute by making funny faces, shaking my head, shrugging my shoulders, and gesturing toward my mouth with my free hand. Picture that, you know it's funny.
