Swope / Re: Swope League 9/11/2012
« on: September 11, 2012, 10:31:50 PM »
  Sucks to imagine what Swope will be like in a few years if it keeps losing trees at this rate.  :(

Blame me.. I've hit every tree at Swope at least once , some a bunch of times. I'm going to start using Nurf disc for now on.. :P

After play, go north on 173 past I-80 to Elkhorn and eat at the Danish Inn. It is a buffet and is wonderful.

Tournaments / Re: Discraft Ace Race - Swope Park - 09-23-12

I know the name is "Ace Race", so 1 throw at each basket?  So as a newbie, should I come out at anytime, throw at 36 baskets and watch some awesome players? Are adult beverages allowed? And do I need to belong to any clubs?
From the flyer it sounded fun and I would like to watch a tournament and some good players.

General Banter / Re: One of the wrecks from this weekend at Pikes Peak

Cool pictures, I liked the bikes ( ex-flat-tracker myself). What I want to know is what happened to the road?

It was paved only up to midway when I was there last.

I've done the Pike's Peak as a spectator at the Devils Playground. We stood on the road as the cars went by, you could reach out and touch them. Pike's Peak is one of the coolest races I've been to. It's amazing they didn't die in the crash.

Thanks for the vid

Today I saw a Coupe, a Wolf, an Ace, a Phenix and one date 1984 plus a hand made bag that was multi-colored. Because of the things he told me I won't say his name. (JB)  He's a guy I work with and still uses the disc' and bag.

Oh and I would like to play the Ace Race, you guys need some one to come in last.  :P

Water Works / Re: Trash Talkin'
« on: August 09, 2012, 11:14:28 PM »
Can you put trash bags in the bottom of the cans? That way if someone wants to empty the can , thre is a fresh bag. If this has already been hashed out , never mind. I have seen trash on the courses and have not picked it up. After reading the article, it opened my eyes a little.
Oh well ,I'm new here so never mind

Clover Dell Park / Re: Clover Dell map
« on: August 05, 2012, 02:35:32 PM »
Thanks, I will be back in a week and give it a shot. The OB on the sign is the dog park fence, it makes sense now.  I'm just a little slow or old or something.

Clover Dell Park / Clover Dell map
« on: August 04, 2012, 10:23:13 PM »
We were on our way to Warsaw and I stopped at Clover Dell. Looking at #1 tee, it looks like it goes over the road. The tee sign faces the road. I didn't play because of time but wondered if a map is availible?  We went by the course at Warsaw, all wide open. My wife will like that, it's small but better than nothing.

thanks

General Banter / Seniors? how many?
« on: July 25, 2012, 12:52:08 PM »
I know I'm new but I have many questions.
I am 56 years old and just started playing Disc Golf. I have played Frisbee every since the 70's and can throw a Frisbee very well. Now it's a new game.

I was reading ( I research every thing) PDGA's web site and found this about Seniors.    www.pdga.com/files/documents/Senior-Disc-Golf-Tips.pdf

It bases seniors at 50 years old.
 Is there a Seniors league in the area? How many out there are in this age group? And what are you doing different then the younger player?

I know I do not have the flexibility the younger players have. I do keep it in the fairway, just not that far.

It's HOT
Cheers

Beginners / Re: Old and new

Thanks for the invites. I have been hitting Legecy after 7:30/8 to beat the heat. I'm heading for Nebraska this weekend , there is a course in Ashland  we are going to hit. I go back to work in a couple of weeks so the afternoon times will work.

I have been reading the web and found this  http://www.quadcitydiscgolf.com/TipsForSuccess  I have to remember it takes time .

The best line is there is no secret to learning golf quickly. If you guys are up to it, I'll take you up on the offers in a couple of weeks.

Man is it hot
Cheers
Mick
