General Banter / Re: The Disc Golf List
« on: November 17, 2016, 09:32:22 PM »
PDGA Number: 7148
When you started: 1980 chucking Wham-O 80e mold Ultimate discs at objects (so not technically disc golfing 'til '83, see first disc)
Throwing Style: RHBH
Putting Style: Straddle pitch (35 years after starting, I finally found a putt style that mostly works for me)
Favorite Pro: Nate Doss
Favorite Disc: Bolt
Favorite Disc Manufacturer: Latnovacraft
Lifetime Aces: 5 (Delaveaga #12 short - casual round, Swope #17 - KCWO, Wyco #5 short - league, Wyco #8 twice; once in casual round another in league)
Best Round: 57 at Pickard in 2007 First Class Challenge, though a couple of 52's at Wyco have felt just about as good.
Favorite Course: DeLaveaga, Santa Cruz, Ca.  nothing will challenge you to sharpen your game like this one played regularly.
Least Favorite Course: Hellyer Park, San Jose, Ca. gully golf defined.
One Disc Round disc: Depends on the course, but pack one for any possibility?  I'd probably go with whatever driver I'm favoring at the time.  So a Bolt
Person who got you into disc golf: Wasn't really a person but a necessity for when we still wanted to throw but not enough players around for a game of Ultimate. But "Rojo" probably did most to keep up my interest in the game with regular friendly competitive rounds in the mid to late 80's.
First Disc: mail order Innova Champion Aero (man was it cool to throw a disc from one goal post to the other on a football field)
If there was any course you could play: Winthrop Gold at USDGC.  It's not just about the course but the entire event and atmosphere around it.
Home Course: Wyco

I wasn't able to get the day off to go help with this. But nice to see almost 40 trees planted on holes 3, 4, 8, 9 and 17.

There have been cyclocross races at Wyco a few times in the past several years.  The only thing that could be considered damage from those events was the matted down grass from all the riders doing multiple laps of the riding course they defined.  Nothing that didn't just repair itself.  :)

Tournaments / Re: Club championship question

Almost any combination of courses that doesn't include Swope would get a thumbs up here.

You didn't like the morphed 2 18 hole configuration at Swope?

I didn't play them, so no opinion there.

But so many events in town have Swope in the mix.  That and the recent consistent use of Swope for Club Championships put it at the bottom of my personal list for options.  However, it's not my choice. :) I'm 99% not likely to play in the CC, whatever the course selection.

Are we doing shotgun starts or tee times?  I can't seem to find that anywhere.  Thanks.
Greg I am pretty sire it is all tee times all weekend long.

yes, it is tee times every round. With the first card going out at 8:00am each day.  Although scheduling might get dicey if there are combined rain delays greater than 3 hours any particular day.  Hopefully any storms that hit blow through quickly.

Barter Town / Go Ape Gift Certificate
« on: August 16, 2016, 09:19:36 AM »
I have one ticket for Go Ape Treetop Adventures ($62.77 value, not redeemable for merch, food or cash) from the players pack of the KCWO perf flight.  My wife and son aren't the thrill seeking type, so I won't be using it.

First to request the ticket can have it.

Correct.  This is a PDGA league, so it costs an extra dollar.  50 cents goes to the PDGA, and 50 cents is being donated to the KC Disc Golf Divas.
Ah, I didn't realize SMP was doing PDGA league.  thanks.

$5 for kcfdc members, $6 for non-members.  Add a buck for the ace fund.

It's $4 to play league, $5 if you are not a current KCFDC member.  Ace pool is optional $1 on top of member/non-member league entry.

WYCO / Re: 2016 Wyco League Fridays
« on: July 16, 2016, 11:21:55 AM »
20 out yesterday evening; 14 in Open, 6 in Masters.  Pete C. has the detail sheet. The course was set quite long (par 62). Unfortunately, it was as shaggy as I have ever played it. Many searches for middle of the fairway drives.  But it looked like the P&R had just started the mowing cycle with first cut around pins and trees.  In all likelihood, Wyco should be fully mowed by next Friday.  Come on out and enjoy the expected heat wave.

There are several courses listed, in my opinion, that are better disc golf courses than Water Works.  However, WW would make my top 3 favorite courses in the area.  I guess it all depends on the criteria for how "best" is defined.

No thanks to this forum for eating my post that I worked on for 20 minutes.  I mean FT.  Whatev yo.

I've had the forum black hole long posts too. Quite infuriating! It's just a guess, but there may be some sort of built in time out. Anyway, if you're working on a post for a while, copy the entire work in progress and save it off to a text editor for backup that way you don't have to start from scratch.

Swope / Re: SWOPE Changes DISCussion
« on: June 22, 2016, 04:30:12 PM »
You would think the Zoo and a pet shelter would go hand in hand (i.e. put it on in their space).  But what do I know?

My thoughts exactly.  But then Swope gold is gone, not a big loss. 

What about the woods south of #14?  Could some solid technical holes be carved out in there?
