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.

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.

I am still trying to figure this all out. I am slowly creeping up to a year playing, if you count winter time where I did not throw a disc. I usually look where I want to throw it, say a silent prayer and throw. Does it work? Heck no! I try to watch the vets throwing and I tend to ask a lot of questions, which can probably get annoying. I need to find this Church of the Flying Disc God!

Something I think helps develop your throwing is to play catch. Another thing that will improve your game fast is to take all your discs and go throw them out in an open filed such as a soccer field or baseball field. Playing rounds doesn;t give you enough reps to learn how to make the discs go where you want them to.

This. But doing the field thing takes dedication-- let's face it, that's booooring compared to playing an actual round --but perhaps that dedication makes the difference between an average player and an exceptional one.

I thought your next post would be a picture of it in the back of your truck.

Ha, that'd be sweet. Bow season opens 9/15, will have to wait til then. Mmm, backstraps...

I believe Hinck has it right when it comes to having confidence in your own technique. There's so many different styles if you watch the pros. Different grip, different speed of run-up, different reach-back, different follow-through. On putts: different grip, different stance, different loft, different spin, etc. I think people do what works for them and what feels natural and it translates to better results for some than for most others. I'm in the most others boat. ;D
