Winter Leagues / Re: September and/or October Wednesday glow?

I would vote to use Wyco.

Two leagues per weeek occuring at PC during grass dormancy period may cause bare spots to happen.  :-\

This is gonna be a fun day of Disc Golf on two beautiful tracts. There is ample shade on both courses, we will have 50 gallons of water on each course, it's ran/sponsored by DD with their professional manner of execution, it's part of the KC mini series, a BIG ACE fund with multiple chances to ACE, an easy short drive between courses and to nearby lunch spots. Let's play!  :D

Although there is a lot of space, make it easier in the TDs and get signed up early.  8)

Dan Zink, Kelly Babbit and myself spread approximately 7 cubic yards of mulch last night at PC. Thanks guys!

The course is looking quite nice and will make for a great tournament playing experience.

I should have Lakeside in toureny pin positions this evening. PC should be in tourney pin position by Friday evening.

The courses are looking really good. Short fairway grass is the norm on both courses, and the rough at Lakeside will be mowed a day or two before the tourney.

Message me if you feel like gaining some course karma with some volunteerism and we can set up a task and a time to enhance the parks even more.

If anyone wants to spot during the tourney, we could really use two at PC. One on hole 11 (playin the long pin), and one on hole 13 (playin the left pin).

Just message me on here, or use drums and/or smoke signals.  ;D

Both courses should be in tourney positions by this coming Sunday morning Friday evening, and I'll have them posted on here too.

This evening we are spreading mulch starting on hole 15 around 4:15-4:20, then moving to hole 14 tee area. It should only take a couple hours.

De-thorning (and removal of cut thorns) in hole 12 is needed yet as well. Hole 13 is done.

Brian Corneilius, myself, Dan Quinn, and Dan Zink did mowing and clean-up in hole 15 and hole 13. Thanks guys!

Some de-thorning and weedeating in hole 12 will have PC close to complete. More mowing on 15 can be done by anyone that wants to over the next two weeks.

Brian Corneilius, Rob Haney, G-$, Matt Jenkins, and Bomb Tutler got hole 16 looking good, hole 15 has a good start, and the path from 13 to 14 tee is cleaned up and WIDE now. Rob had a big cooler full of a variety of cold drinks. Thanks guys!  8)

The pin fixes I hope to get done next week with Pete's help.  :)

Sunday we will be on hole 15 at PC. I plan on around 8:30. If you have a weedeater or push mower bring em.

If you have a wheelbarrow and shovels, bring them too. Don't forget your gloves.  :-*

If anyone wants to, the tree trunks on holes 12 and 13 need de-thorned. If ya give em a shave, please clean up the thorns as ya go and remove them safely.

Both courses will be looking S W E E T for the tourney, and for upcoming late-Summer/Fall fun rounds.

There are a few variables that will need resolved over the next week or so before the pin settings are firmed up, but expect a medium length PC and long Bird, with minimal O.B.s and lotsa fun!

If you want some course Karma, feel free to come help me with some tasks....see/follow the posts in general banter....

Tomorrow evening (Thursday 8-14-14) we will be doing some course work at PC from 4:30 til dusk. I'll be starting around hole 16, then moving to hole 13, and then hole 12. We'll be doing weedeating, minor tree trimming, mowing. Come join in the Karma building fun. If you have a weedeater, machete, gloves, bring em.

We'll be doing more on Sunday (8-17-14) from 8:30 a.m. until ??? also at P.C.

Next week I'll be doing stuff most every evening as well, and as we progress I'll have a better idea of the where and when and what. There are things we want to get done at Birdland as well to enhance the players experience.

It's free- It's fun- It builds character and pride!  ;D

Prairie Center / Re: PC Unplayable on Sunday
« on: June 30, 2014, 09:50:05 AM »
Went to PC this Sunday to play a nice hot round of golf around 4 with some friends.  Was having a good day until we got to hole 11.  There were about 50 people camped out on the course with kids running around and even someone sitting on the box. We proceeded to ask them to move so we could play through them.  With the exception of the little kids playing with the basket chains, they moved out of the way.  But I was not going to throw anywhere near the basket for fear of hitting someone.

Everyone was there for two adult men's soccer matches.

Then we got to hole 12. Same thing.  We again asked them to move so we don't hit them and mostly they just stared at us.  One guy who was a player came up to us and asked what the big deal was and why don't we just skip the hole since we have 100 other holes to play. He also asked if we had money on the game and since we didn't we should just move along.

Had he not been surrounded with 4 soccer teams and their families it could have gotten ugly.  It was starting to with the insulting nature of the player.

SOMETHING needs to be done.  We were not playing on their soccer field.  They need to respect our playing field just as much.  I was told this is a week issue.  I was not happy and very frustrated for the rest of the round.

We basically lose 2 holes every weekend.  What do we do?

Find an INS agent or two and bring them out with ya.... >:(
