This kind of stuff is soooooo frustrating!!  I guess my questions are:  Is there a way to put a gate and lock this side of the lake like they do in sections of the other side of the lake?  Also, are there plans to put some kind of motion detector (perhaps a solar powered or battery powered) flood light in an inconspicuous place that can light they basket area up during the dark of the night?  This flood light can also contain a remote camera (like hunters use to record movement of animals).  My thoughts are the light may be just enough of a deterrent  that these offenders might scadaddle when 'lit up', and if not, the motion activated video recorder will roll tape and hopefully provide some evidence of who is tampering with our baskets (and perhaps catch a glimpse of their vehicle too).  I realize that there are a lot of other possibilities as to the when's/how's/why's of this, but I am wondering if there are proactive ways the city or the club can help curb the trending vandalism to this particular the practice basket.  I also realize that this kind of thing may be easier to just 'deal with' and replace or repair broken things than it is to try and formulate some sort of action plan to stop vandalism in the first place.  I was just thinking out loud here because I love this course and the property it is on,and I want to see it stay beautiful in every way (for golfers and for the community that accesses the lake for sport or leisure).

I was playing with a friend but he was rushing back to get his bag and didn't get turned around in time to see my shot.  Hopefully it turns up, it's my bread and butter long distance disc.

Sorry bout that.  I lost it at Water Works, on hole 14 but it could have landed anywhere on 17 or 15 for that matter.

Tried pushing it ONE TO MANY HOLES last night and lost my precious orange blizzard boss.  It was getting REALLY dark, I stepped up to the tee box, put a good rip on it, because of the heat and high humidity my glasses flew off my face during my release and god knows where my disc went????  I scramble to get my glasses off the ground and on my face but it was to late...she was gone  :'(  I threw it off of hole 14 down (long hole down the hill) and I don't know if it went left, right, long, short.  I believe I had my name on it (Perry Martin).  Thx if you find it.

That was one of the best news pieces I have ever seen on disc golf, well done.  Mpls is a hot bed of dg and a great place to visit.

Awesome, thank you for clarifying that.  I just received an email from Rick and will wait for him to verify and then I'll head on down to DGW to pick up my tag.

You might have better luck posting this question on the Kansas Disc Golf Association's forums.

Thanks Phisherman.  Luckily I just received a text from a friend who confirmed it is mowed and ready to play!

General Banter / Perry Lake UPDATE?
« on: July 22, 2013, 04:17:13 PM »
Hey gang, I was wondering if anyone made it out to Perry Lake this past weekend?  I have a few buddies coming in town and want to make the trip ONLY if I can verify that they have been CUTTING AND TRIMMING THEIR GRASS AND FAIRWAYS.  I was out there about a month ago and it was a little on the ridiculous side.  I love the course, but don't want to waste a 2 hours round trip if it isn't mowed.   Thanks for any help.

I know that Keen Delavegas are one of the best disc golf shoes out there, but I don't have that kind of money spend right now.  I would like to get a new pair of shoes that will be rugged enough to stand up to the rigors of DG and will be comfy.  Which shoes do you own and/or recommend?  Which ones should I stay away from?  I am thinking in the $60.00-$80.00 price range!  I would save a while longer to get the Delavegas, but would like to get a new pair before August.



Depending on what size you are looking for, I may have an option for you that will fit your budget.  I bought a pair of KEEN Siskiyou Waterproof Proof Trail Shoes last fall, wore them about 5-6 times on the course and they are just too short (if you know about KEEN shoes they tend to run a size small).  Since I wore them outside I can no longer take them back.  They are in EXCELLENT shape and they are no good to me.  I was getting ready to put them on Dollar Disc Auction but if you would be interested in saving a ton of cash on some excellent shoes, I'll sell them to you for $50.  I wore insoles so the insides haven't even been touched by me feet ;D  Lemme know if you are interested and I can meet up with you somewhere.  They are size  US 12 but I would recommend them for someone who wears 11 or 11.5.

I think it necessary to commend and thank the Board for welcoming me (and others) into their monthly meeting last evening.  They were beyond open to the conversation of pay to play (this does not mean they endorse or want pay to play, but they were willing to listen and give next 'action steps' for myself).  Thank you KCFDC for your hospitality and your professionalism in last nights meeting, you are all doing an incredible job serving this disc golf community and the KC metro p&r's.
