I think Peter made a good point in the newsletter about garbage.  I've been to Rochester many times; they aren't ultra-progressive or something.  The lack of littering here is certainly a result of careful signage and well place garbage receptacles at the entrance/exit of the parks.   

I know it seems like a leap, but I really think we need to try this on the down under course.   It is so incredibly difficult to get garbage out of there.

I guess it wont work if you are shooting high 70's. :D
You know my game too well.

This just what I needed.    I'll never shoot over 42 again!

Exactly, I'm content playing disc golf for funny money, then hopping into my luxury sled and driving home to my stately manor where I swim in a pool of gold coins like Scrooge McDuck. ;D

HAHAHAhahaha...   I want to hang out at YOUR place!   I always wondered how he (Scrooge McDuck) was able to swim through those piles of gold coins.   I would think there would be a lot of resistance on the surface and bone crushing weight underneath.

I'd like to extend my thanks to John Theiss, Jon Robertson and Tim Becks for all of their hard work tonight.   Theiss - that chainsaw was awesome!  We were able to clear the most of the tree trunk from #3 and much of the debris.  IT WAS HEAVY.    We tried to set it up in a way that might help some of the erosion problems.   Likewise, we quickly disposed of the tree that fell on #14.   

I think we took 2 bags of bottles up, and we also gave a threesome a garbage bag.  They surprised us and took up a full bag of garbage from #17 and #18!   

Spread the love and gain some karma; take out some garbage.  Guaranteed to knock 3 strokes off your game.

I'd be fine to play for a bounty of Ted's delicious cookies.

If any other able-bodied disc golfers want to lend a hand (and an arm, and some legs, etc), John Theiss, Tim Becks, and I will be at Rosey at 4:45 PM TOMORROW Sept. 13th.   We're planning on heading down under via Up Top's #2 tee pad.   

I'll also bring a couple dozen Parks and Rec garbage bags.   So if it looks like there are too many cooks in the "cut-the-tree kitchen", feel free to come by and drag a bit of garbage out of down under.

Sounds great, John.   My Thursday evening is booked, but I'm sure I can work down there any other night this week.

It will take chainsaws - I'm nearly certain.  Chainsaws or giants.   Do we have any giants? 

What does the club have that I may use?  Any type of saw?  If it takes me 3 weeks, I'll saw the hell out of a tree.

Rosedale / Down Under Work Day
« on: September 11, 2011, 05:24:34 PM »
Hello friendly club members, all of whom love to play the Down Under course at Rosedale...

I would like to coordinate a work day for ol' D.U.  There are some trees that fell in the fairway that I think we could get rid of.   I do not own any equipment for this, but I have plenty of determination and a little bit of time.   Does anyone with chainsaws and what not want to come help me clear the fallen trees? 

My schedule is fairly open in the morning, especially the early morning.  I am willing to meet up on weekends too.   I really want to take care of this - but I need help.

Reply with times/dates that work.   And please include any equipment you may have.

Best,
Ryan

I would love to see how this stuff would look on a disc golf basket:  http://www.glonation.com/unpigmented-glow-paint.php

Don't worry, I won't buy it and then start painting baskets without talking to anyone first.  I mean, who would do that? Seriously. But I may buy it and paint my own chains.

Don't get me started on editing, E. 

"Oh, and air air pressure..."
  You've got to watch out for that air air.  hahaha

Speaking of nerding out...

If you're going to borrow, use citations and/or list source material.  Give us a bibliography.  They are important, particularly in recounting research that is not common knowledge or that is from your own findings.

When I created this topic, I had no idea how controversial it was.

As for hole nine the rocks were moved because of weed eating around them, the island is a problem as far as out of bounds. The rocks look nice, wish we had more railroad ties though to do the island. I will work on a list this week for a work day now that its going to get cooler out.

Thanks for the info, Bert.   Let me know if I can lend a hand.  I live very close.   Also, I dropped off a yellow champion Valkyrie with your name on it to DGW.  I think Bob was going to pick it up for you.   The great thing about shooting every shot in the woods is finding other peoples lost plastic.  hahahaha   If only that made me feel better about what I shot today!

The rocks were certainly nicely organized.  It made the OB line very clear (at least until they ran out of rocks).   I do worry, however, about how drastically this changes the challenges of this fairway.  I should probably keep my mouth shut.   As a RH backhand thrower, the new set up benefits me quite a bit.
