General Banter / Re: Am Tournaments?
« on: July 19, 2012, 10:43:01 AM »
There's none any closer? I just wanted to get that experience and get out and play some disc golf. What about this PITT open, does it have a Am division? and how is that one?

General Banter / Am Tournaments?
« on: July 19, 2012, 10:22:46 AM »
Got a question, whats a good tournament for an Ammeter?  I just want to get out and have fun but also compete with people at my skill level. What would you recommend?

I am average thrower I believe, for only playing a month, I average +9-11 on 18 holes and it keeps dropping.

Thanks, after reading the internet tips.  I think until I get comfortable with playing, I'm not going to worry about a score. I'm doing OK to keep the disc in the fairway and out of the weeds.  I read more then once about control vs. distance. Watching others throw , I wanted more then I am capable of. First things first, Pleasent Hill has Rec Par and I need to stick to that.

I used to be a good Ball Golfer and just wanted to do welll with the disc. I understand the mechanics but don't have the technics down.
I think I found a sport I can truly get into. My wife who doesn't care for outdoor stuff , wants to play. I gave her a putter and she tried. That is a good thing for me.

As for now, just don't point and laugh. At lest I'm keeping it out of the weeds.

Cheers
Mick

Mick,

Welcome to the forum and to the sport. I am turning 30 next wednesday and I just started playing myself. I am like a month into playing. Just keep at it and take every pointer you can get from the veterans. it truly helps, I have received all kinds of pointers from different players and my score has been improving. I started off throwing around mid 90's for 18 holes, I am creeping down to single digits and soon I will be under par hopefully. If you ever want to play, shoot me a PM. I am available after 530pm on weekdays and available on weekends. I am always looking for someone to throw with!!

Rick

Shawnee Mission / Shawnee Mission Warning
« on: July 17, 2012, 11:21:38 AM »
Watching the news and reading a few articles, I felt this was necessary to post. Please be careful with your loved ones and your pets out on Shawnee Mission, there has been a few pet deaths from copperhead bites in SMP. So when you are out on the course for league or fun play, make sure to watch where you are stepping and keep an eye on pets, children and fellow disc golfers!

I am going to try and make it to league tonight, first league play at SMP. I play it for fun, but I figured I would give league a shot out here! Good luck and be safe everyone!

Rosedale / Re: New Players 2012
« on: July 16, 2012, 02:40:30 PM »
Shorter than Rosedale, that's for sure.  I played out at Rosedale yesterday during the afternoon, and that course is set beefy!  Swope (for the most part) is set in a short configuration.

I was starting to throw a lot better at Rosedale, maybe Swope will be the spot I throw my best round yet! I always like checking out new courses and playing with the Vets. I should be there around 530-545. I am leaving Ft Leavenworth around 445pm...

We will be at Swope.  Yes there was a little confusion last week, but it was handled and there was a league director at each park, so no one made a wasted trip.  I will keep it in mind if something ever comes up again that I shouldn't let Rhonda sign people up and make cards for new players league because she obviously didn't do it well.

Considering she was the only one there and had to make an impromptu decision, I think she did just fine. I know she got us signed up and sent out right away. I had no complaints from her. I will be at Swope tonight though!

how's the course?

Bag Tags / Re: Bag Tag Sticker Lost #293

No big deal, happens all the time. Take a Sharpie and write "293" on the tag, have a witness initial it while a third party takes a photo, then write a brief legal description of the events that took place along with the signatures of yourself, the witness, and the photographer, and have it notarized.

Is this a joke or serious? LOL I could write 293 on it...but I am upset because it was my first bag tag and I have had it for so long, HAHAH.
