Getting better involves taking tips and practicing. I'm taking a guy out to work with his driving in a field. We will throw between 100 and 150 shots probably.

You can't take those tips from clinics and not practices them outside of golf. It takes a very long time to unlearn something, like the way you throw.

I'm fine giving people advice while they play. I've been focusing a lot on foot position with people this year. But if you want to really improve your throw, you need field practice and a lot of reps.

Right, and that guy your working with. When you give him a tip and watch him throw 100 to 150 times, you can correct him and keep working with him on the correct way to do it. When you have 20 to 30 people at a clinic you can't give that type of attention. My comment or thoughts weren't about if it's best in a field or on a course. They are about how many people each pro is working with. I also certainly understand if somebody shows you something and you don't work on it that's just your own stupidity. But if you show me something once or twice and watch me do it once or twice that doesn't mean I got it.

Whatever kind of minis or clinics you guys have, probably lots of people (myself included) will show up for.  That will certainly increase activity. The only problem I see is it probably won't make a much higher quality of disc golfer in Kansas City. Usually when people go to an activity like that they get one or two good tips. Then they go right back to what they were doing. The thing I think helps me the most, and Kevin talked about it, is if you would each take a small group (3 or 4 people) and play a round with them. If I get pointers in a actual round setting that is where I learn the most. But I understand that is a large chunk of your time.  Maybe if you had a clinic and enough pros showed up that they could work with 3 or 4 people that would be awesome. Any of you guys can teach me anytime. :)

Hey Harold, we haven't played Wyco in a long time. How about there.  :)

Congratulations on the win Duane.

Awesome rounds Duane. I guess since you shot 950 rated rounds and would have only been 1 stroke off the win
in Advanced you will be getting out of Intermediate. ;D

Rob, I will be making some of these. Thanks.

I hope your enthusiasm kicks back up after the league starts (on Wednesday April 2nd) and everyone shows up to play. I appreciate your work on this and thank you.

At least this year the weather was perfect and there was no wind.

Although I will help, boo for OB's. This course is hard enough already.

Doesn't someone call this the greatest course ever?

You are close, somebody said it is the greatest course in the world. That person was correct.

What about an abbreviated rotating KS league? So instead of playing 10 different courses, just pick 3 and rotate between them?

SMP, Lakeside, Wyco or something like that.
That's an idea.  I'm intending to go to next week's BOD meeting to discuss.

Just speaking for myself, those 3 courses on Wednesday would be my favorite choice.
