Tournaments / Re: KAN U WYCO?
« on: February 15, 2012, 05:27:03 PM »
Is DD going to put the registration list on the PDGA site?
Last year this tournament didn't fill, but it has in years past. I think a few people who registered early last year might be a little more cautious.  One of the reasons this tourney would fill quickly is because it was part of the oz tour which would get a lot players from Kansas to play. Getting upgraded to B tier will help bring in some good players with the extra added cash. This year we have a tournament the next day at Rosedale which might draw more players from out of town.  It's great having more PDGA tournaments in KC this year thanks to DD, I just wish I could play them all. I am going to wait to register for now because I don't know who's playing and what the weather is going to do.

This sounds fun, except being a 2 day competition. There also needs to be some incentive to win like some type of pay out with donated prizes or a party for the winners.

Thanks Tom & company for improving 13. I can't wait to see it. The closest I have come to getting to play a round was when my 2 2yr old's skipped their nap and came down stairs with CDs in their hands (which was from the music collection I have for them to sleep with) saying "were ready to play disc golf". 

That is part of the reason why it is good to play in a group of better individuals, it does help you learn from better players which will generally improve your own game!

You should always play in the pro 1 division at minis if you are wanting to improve your game. Seven bucks is cheep for a 2 1/2 hour lesson.  :)

I'll work on a plan to get a key from Dirk and get it working.

As for the shortness, its a family friendly park, and I personally see absolutely nothing wrong with leaving it short even in the longer daylight months.

With the abundance of coruses in town, it is absolutely disc golf suicide to have all courses long, it will never turn a new player into wanting to play more if they can't feel that satisfaction of completion.

I never said all long, there should be a good mix of short and long holes so its a challenge for any level of play. I guess the days of strategically trying to place a golf shot so you feel the satisfaction of getting a three or four are gone in KC. Even the par three ball golf courses have a few par 4 & 5s mixed in.

The new pin placements out there are way to lame. I know there are a lot of beginners out there, but why set it mostly short for summer when you have more playing time (daylight)? I have been out there twice and don't feel a need to go back tell there is a good mix in the placements. I was still trying to figure out how to deuce some of those original placements.

There is also construction on 87th street and you can't access Renner, so I found the best way for us southerners is to take 435 to Midland and back track up Renner.

Starting sometime this month Olathe Parks will have silver trash cans to help disc golfers recycle plastic bottles and cans. Now we can not only claim to have the park with the most fun, but also we can also feel a little better about doing our part to save the planet from global warming. Then again we like global warming, so just make sure you drive your smog producer a long distance to get there.

Who actually takes the time to count chains on a basket.....really.....

This is exactly what the thief might have thought and it was almost the perfect crime tell my puts started falling out last summer. Of course it wasn't my fault my perfectly executed puts weren't staying in. I have been robbed numerous times by basket 4, & 17 and I not going to take it anymore. I not only want these baskets fixed I want to be reimbursed for all my lost winnings; I want this chain robber to hang. Basket 4 chains were left equally spaced. What kind of kid does that? Some kids took the chains off of a Cliff Drive basket and hung them in a tree. What would a kid do with these chains and how would they even reach them? I think we would have found some of them lying around.

Prairie Center / Stolen Chains on holes 4,9,17

If you have noticed that these baskets haven't been catching the same there is a good reason why. It appears sometime around last spring someone has upgraded their basket at home at our expense. There are six chains on the inner ring on this type of Innova Diskcatcher (now diskejector) baskets. It just so happens that hole 4 has three chains missing, hole 9 has one and hole 17 has two missing. All these baskets can conveniently be accessed by the road which makes it easy for someone to grab. We need to get these 6 chains replaced and make sure all the chains are crimped down so there not so easy to remove.

I don't think we kept our over/under score correctly. We knew better who was leading and by how many. I had a two stroke lead going into the back. I parred 14 and they both birdied and Dick & Brian got a bogey on 15. I parred hole 3 and they both birdied. I was then tied with Leo&Deano until they bogeyed 6 giving me the lead.

Thanks Tom for running a great tournament. Congrats to Cooper for his first cash in Open, now you can enjoy paying $75 or more a year for your PDGA dues, although you can still play am as long as your rating stays below 970.

I think a 45 is possible with the conditions we will have on Saturday, which would be around a 1050 rated round. Monday was 95 high with winds south at 10mph with gusts up to 25 and Saturday will be only 80 for high with winds s/sw 7mph with gusts up to 18mph. I think it is easier to play pc with a south wind, especially with the smell you get from the north.

 I don't know how 16 is going to work if there are people using the soccer fields, there may be a back up there if you have to wait on people to clear out.

I challenge all disc golfers to go out there Saturday and try and beat that score. :)
