This is the course that gave me my love for disc golf.  It's a nice little course.  Nice driving lanes, with a few challenging holes.  Water in play for 4-5 holes, but several of those are 2' deep stream.  #13 is a nice water challenge.  Not too long, other than one hole.  Nice atmosphere.  The only thing that sucks in the $5 parking fee.  Pretty flat.  There's a swimming beach less than 50 yards away from one of the holes as well, if it gets too hot. 

Lots of memories from that course....

Seems like those rings on the inner rim of the basket could knock a disc around when you wouldn't want it to....

Liquid soap doesn't work.  Ticks can go several hours or more without oxygen, so suffocating them isn't a good method.  Use either tweezers, or special tick removing tools to remove them.

The best thing for tick prevention is a Permethrin based clothing spray.  Deet isn't very effective for ticks.  But Permethrin works very well.  Ticks will literally die just by coming in contact with clothing sprayed with Permethrin. 

This stuff is great.  Lasts a long time.

Seen in Kendall Indian Hammocks Park, Miami, FL. 

Although a Swope model would likely need titanium and 6" unbreakable plexiglass....

Where are you located?  I wouldn't mind taking a look at it.  I'm in Westport. 

If you're seeing the 30 second timer each time, it likely means it's trying to boot to Windows, but can't startup at all.  Which could be a number of different things.  It might be that the CMOS battery drained completely and reset your CMOS settings so your drive is in ATA mode instead of AHCI.  On some of those Dells, it had to be set to ATA for WinXP, and AHCI for Win7, and wouldn't run otherwise.  The Windows install might be corrupt.  I have some boot discs that can fix it if so.  It doesn't sound like the HD is mechanically dead, so in the worst case you could still hook the drive up to another computer and get your iTunes stuff off. 

Let me know if you need some help.

Great cause.  Great course.  Play Thornfield!

I really enjoyed this yesterday.  Definitely learned a lot.

Not that I really care, but Dave was also charging people $40 for personal 1 on 1 lessons back behind the ball diamond between holes 8 and 9....

Found and Lost / FOUND - Star Roadrunner @ Rosie labeled Whorton

Found a white star Roadrunner at Rosie yesterday.  Found DU on #17, but I think it's just as likely that it was lost on #7 up top. 

Only thing on the disc is "WHORTON" spelled twice. 

Anybody?  Anybody?  Bueller?

No mention at all of expected salary?  Not even a "Between $X-$Y"? 

In my experience, that usually means "Less that what you're expecting"....
