Tournaments / Re: City of Fountains - November 4th, 2012 - Unsanctioned

Every single one of you should be playing open. There is nothing at stake here. Nothing to lose and everything to gain. Your game will only get better if you play above your present level. This isn't a sanctioned event, the cost isn't that much more, so kick yourself in the berries and move up. You may lose, hell you WILL lose, but losing in open is better than winning in advanced or intermediate. Do you really want to win a free buzz or boss? If you just want plastic, sh1t, I will give you some of mine. I've got plenty of unused, tournament win plastic I will give you. If ANY of you are planning on playing in AM worlds next year, you need to play OPEN NOW, to get the experience you will need to be successful. This is a good chance to play at a higher level.

I agree and do play better when amongst Open players. However, I still don't play well enough to cash with Open players, so it still feels like donating. ;D

Dear haters......

Yes we do have some good course designers in town.  We also have a ton of courses.  Why on earth wouldn't we want to have a course designed by one of the premier architects currently in the game?

I for one am in the process of trying to get work for John in the area, here is my rationale.

Why not?  Why not have a "Houck Designed" course right here in the metro area to compare our solid folks against?  Why not have that to lure some people to the area that may want to just visit it as an attraction?  Why not then understand that the diversity we bring in may enable us to get new ideas from him, or solidify the notion that we do know what we are doing with our lands that we play on?

Though not a large proponent of Texas, his accolades follow him, as such wouldn't we be silly to shoo him away because of favoritism?

I for one am very interested in not only having a course here but hopefully the chance to work and develop them with him and learn from the experiences that he has.

Even with all of our wonderful folks designing courses in the area, collectively we are still a small fraction of the courses that he has designed.  You learn better tricks from the top pros to help your game, why not learn some new tricks from a top pro on the design side?

Lighten up, Francis.

With the exception of Legacy, it sure looks like all of our courses were perfectly designed, as far as using the land and topography available. Not sure where the need to bring some big-name designer in from Texas comes from. I'll take our local course designers over that guy any day, and F Texas too. ;D

A restaurant? That's a new one on me...

Well Frank was convinced he was never playing Golf again. I talked him into holing out after he received a warning from our group. So no measurable score reduction for him. I did however beat him that round and the next..

Dude, you gave your buddy a warning? That's out cold!

Cliff Drive is about a sketchy as it gets.

I can certainly understand why you'd say that, with the bodies and burned vehicles, condoms and syringes, etc. But as far as disc golfers are concerned, has anyone ever had their vehicle broken into at Cliff? Not that I'm aware of. It has happened several times at Swope and Rosedale, though.

Huge thanks to Jim, then! Jim is going places in life, folks!

C'mon, I want to hear more of what this Williams guy was saying. Can we get a few quotes, at least? ;D

Dammit, I haven't the heart to vote against anyone on that list. I had a picture in my mind of a bunch of old, fat, hairy men voting against that generator before lighting giant cigars and laughing diabolically. WTF...

341
I did not RSVP, but will be there if they'll let me out of work. Kristie, could you provide me with a list of those board members who voted against buying the generator?

#4 at Cliff is considered the worst hole in Disc Golf by Matty O. fwiwwim

wtf, why?

It's a crapshoot once you're past the first few trees.

And whatever Jack, uphill holes are blaaaaahhh, they have their place in the game, obviously, but you'll never convince me that throwing a disc uphill is fun.

#3 at Blue Valley (BIG) is better than #3 at Cliff....though #3 at Rosedale always seems to have my number, and I used to love it more when it was freshly chipped with pine needles in the past (many moons ago), I also love the risk/reward on PC and SMP for #3...long at Swope on #3 is very good as well....Down Under #3 in the long placement is TOUGH, and when people get 2's there, it screams excellence.

SO #3 is a toss up in my mind.

Are we talking gold as in fun to play, as in the marquee hole you look forward to throwing, or gold as in challenging and provides scoring separation? #3 at BV would be the most challenging, but far from the most fun. That hole sucks to play.
