Club Archives / if you're driving in and want to play en route
« on: June 27, 2009, 10:23:09 AM »
here are a few ideas.

From the North, I35   Lamoni, Iowa.  Graceland U and B&J Rollling Hills (B&J is pay to play, $5 and
                                   well worth it)
                              Des Moines, of course

From the North, I29    Savannah Mo   nothing fancy, but it's a nice park.
                               St Joseph MO   on the campus of Missouri Western State
                               Atchison KS  just across the river (sort of) from St Joe   Jackson Park
                               Omaha     Seymour Smith
                               Lincoln   Max Roper

From the East:  I70      St Louis  Jefferson Barracks (South St Louis County)
                             Ste Genevieve  (south of St Louis on I55) Pere Marquette Park (ok, it's my baby.
                                      need putting practice?  the baskets will work you)
                             Wentzville   Quail Ridge (right at the I70/US 40 split, off 40)                       
                                       find the long tees
                              Columbia   Indian Hills
                              Jefferson City   fun 18 holes, harder than first glance
                              California MO     second most fun 9 hole course I've played (see Ste Gen)
From the South:   I35   Tulsa
                             Pawhuska, the Lodge   has camping too, pay to play
                             Emporia   Jones Park both courses
                             Baldwin City KS Running Horse--private, call to get on, reportedly a great course
                       US 71   Joplin McClelland
                                  Ft Smith AR
                                  Alma AR

From the West:  I70  Hays KS  Frontier Park
                              Manhattan  Tuttle Creek Reservoir
                             Topeka   Crestview Park, & Lake Shawnee
                             Lawrence  Centennial Park

there are more, but these are ones that I know something about and can suggest as good stretch out places.  Some of them are a little off the main highways, but not bad.

First time out to Yates, and John, CONGRATS!  This is a fun course, and not necessarily as easy as it may seem.  No shortage of short shot variety, it's great!

Blue Pro Wraith.  About halfway down, to the left, went into the trees about 10' up.

Anyone planning to go? 

Turns out it's better for me if I don't go.  dangit.  Too many issues at the last minute.

General Banter / Alternate Reality formats
« on: May 23, 2009, 11:30:15 PM »
I know it's tournament season, but there's plenty of time to do other things for fun.

I propose a couple of one day events, either one or two rounds, makes no difference. 

Remember the "One Disc Wango"?  That's one idea.  Alternate hand is another (hehehe..) Roll it out/back it in is always fun.  Grand Safari Day.  Match play.  Match play would HAVE to have a pay-in and pay-out, 9 holes per round. 

Anyone else want to get in on any of these?

I'm assuming there won't be anything happening.  Lightning, hail, and winds 50mph+ are not too conducive to good golf.  Much less health.

Kevin Elrod in Pittsburg was interviewed by the NPR station there, KRPS.  Nice little piece!

General Banter / International Tuba Day is this Friday, May 1
« on: April 26, 2009, 09:47:36 PM »

I'll be celebrating at Waldo Pizza, 7433 Broadway (75th and Wornall) in Kansas City, roughly 8:30 to 10:30 PM.
Like so many things at Waldo Pizza, time may be somewhat flexible. No, I don't mean tempo or rhythm.

We (my good friend Elliot Hirsch and, with luck, some other folks) will be set up in the Tap Room.

Please don't get the salad bar during this time, the cherry tomatoes might be too tempting.

Come in, have a beer and a pizza, and listen to a tune or two.  Or to tune the tuba. Or to tub the tuna.

Most of the sets will be rated G (no, not for grotesque), but there may be some off-color variations on familiar tunes. Call it chromaticism.

Hope to see y'all there, yes, you're expected to make a special trip into Kansas City just for this.

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / 2 questions:
« on: April 19, 2009, 09:40:56 AM »
Would someone please post good directions to Legacy Park, and to hole 1?  Thanks...

Are there still drainage issues out there?  The board has several posts about it.

On my return trip from Tulsa yesterday, I ended up in Pittsburg to throw a few holes and break up the day a bit.   Little did I know that the weekly league is Wednesdays,, despite being short on cash I got to play.

This is the first year they've done a league, from what I could tell, turnout of 8 tied the record.  I REALLY felt like an old man, Kevin (the organizer of things down there) was the next oldest, and a bunch of college aged guys. 

The course is now 18 holes, with alternate pads for the nine baskets.  The whole thing is on land about the size of 7 and 8 at Rosedale, if that big, so yes, it's crowded...extremely short...but there are mature oak trees everywhere.  Low and hyzer...low and anhyzer...sheesh.

And, a church group showed up just after we started, about 20 kids.  They had fun, so all is well in Pittsburg. 

Still, it's a fun course.  18 holes in under an hour easily...what a way to break up a day!

WYCO / 3/27 league results
« on: March 27, 2009, 11:01:57 PM »
2 for league tonight.  I went ahead and played Open, and since no one was there with a payout schedule, we paid 100%.

Arturo  DNS*
Steve  31 (9 holes only)

Arturo was leaving as I got there, so he's listed as Did Not Start.  I paid myself.

It really wasn't all that bad out there, not nearly as bad as last Monday at PC, even with the colder temps.
But I got off to a little bit of a late start, so 9 holes did it.

I received a call from a non-DG player that he found a white Aviar of mine.  I told him to put it in the return box, assuming it's still there--I really didn't look.  Is the box still there, and did he actually return the disc?  Anyone?  Bueller??
