 I not only got a 2 on hole 4 long at Wyco, but got a 2 on hole 3 long one time as well. In the wide open in '06 I crashed chains on hole 7 long at Rosey. It bounced out unfortunately. One windy day years ago a group of us were playing Olathe, and on the old hole 18 (west of the current practice basket I chucked a drive that hit the basketball goal, stood up, dropped to the parking lot, caught the wind and proceeded to roll all the way to where the current 17 left pin is now. It took almost 20 seconds to stop. It jumped the curb and was in the grass, so I was shooting my second shot from around 60 feet BEHIND the tee box.

 I've seen lot's of amazing shots by many folks over the years around town. I saw Dan Coffman birdie hole 15 long at Olathe. I saw Mark Morales drive hole 1 long at Waterworks. I saw Nate Marshall park hole 14 long at Waterworks. I saw Mike Thomas roll one down and park hole 1 short at Wyco. I saw Dan Zinc richote off a tree for a league ace on old hole 16 in Olathe. Just last week at the snowman open in Olathe the long drive mark by Steve Dresser was incredible. I've seen CD, Laron, Todd, Otto, Arturro, and many others make shots that didn't seem possible. Here in KC I've seen aces by Ned Smethers(2), Doc Norby, Andy Lewis, Pete Cashen, Dan Zinc, and Otto Spears. I may have seen others as well, but my memory is a little hazy.

Being a Chiefs season ticket holder for 20 years, the last few seasons have been rather disapointing, but Saturday watching the Diegos was fun since their featured back, Darren Sproles grew up in my neighborhood and we watched him all thru his Olathe North years dominate Kansas 6A football. It will be fun watching him kill the steelers this weekend. There must be something in the water in Olathe cause not only is Sproles from there, but the Throlatheans are too.  ;D

Shawnee Mission / Re: SMP League Night
« on: December 30, 2008, 09:14:54 AM »
Our "leagues" are really more like small weekly tournaments. The club typical summer weekly "league" is played as singles. A club member pays $5. Out of the $5, $1.50 goes to the club treasury, $1 goes to the course ACE fund, and $2.50 goes into the nights payout.

During the daylight savings time frame, there are "dark-seekers" that play various GLOW minis through the week, which for the most part are not club affiliated. Additionally, on Saturdays, there is a club weekly mini in Olathe (random draw doubles) at 11:00 am, and a club weekly mini at Rosedale Downunder (random draw doubles) at 12:30 pm. On Sunday there is a club weekly mini in Pleasant Hill, Missouri (random draw doubles) at 12:30.

I'd suggest, if there is enough interest, that a SMP weekly club mini (random draw doubles?)could be played during the daylight savngs period (Winter) on Sundays, say at 1:00, and during summer perhaps on either Tuesday or Thursday evenings at 6:00. I think it would be kewl to keep it a random draw doubles mini year round, as we currently only have P Hill that does that.

I have run leagues quite a bit, and if the course coordinator and exec commitee would like to get one started, and there is enough participation, I would run it. I would like to see the entry and club taxes to be similar to the Downunder mini, which is $10 entry, with $1 to the ACE fund, $2 to the club treasury, and $7 to the payout.

What sayeth the masses?

16 out for the final Monday GLOW of 2008. We finally got some weather that didn't cause pain. Some delicious beer was enjoyed by many, courtesy of Loomis. The light winds and relatively short setup led to all teams shooting under par. Andy musta been Mr. Mom.

Dick Thediscparker & Leo Daprato  45 for $35
Bomb Tutler & Josh Warner  47 for $10

For some reason only five were out for GLOW last night. It might have been the weather that caused the lower attendance, as it was around 9 degrees F, and north winds at 10.

Bryan Guthrie & Double Cali Bryan  46 for $30
Tom Butler & Leo Daprato  47
Cooper Arnold & Josh Warner  51

No ACE so the fund increases to $607.

I am curently out of LED lights. I hope to re-supply this week, but have none for tonight.

Just FYI, you can get them in the fishing aisle at Wal-Mart. Surprised how many people don't know that and think those lights are a disc golf-only item...

Yep. I always tell eveyone that too. The Wal-mart nearest the course was out last time I checked, and they sell for $2.95 for one, where Ted and I so far this year sell em in a 3 pack for $7.

I left mine on Friday night and will have to scrounge up some leftovers for myself tonight.

It's gonna be a bit on the chilly side tonight. Who's playing tonight?

WYCO / Re: basket missing at wyco 12-14

Ideally, one of the thiefs buddys wants the nice juicy reward and rats out his low life thief buddy, we get the basket back, the thief gets arrested and has to spend a grand or two on bail, lawyer, and fines. Then he has to spend additional moola on an emergency room visit and xrays because of some unfortunate "accident". Unless some punishment starts happening, I predict the thievery will only increase in frequency and volume.

Minutes for the Newsletter = Chappy likes Olathe (Kind of means you like Kansas....hmmmm...Kansas like football Chappy?)

Don't even joke about that crap.  I do like specific things in Kansas.  Heck, I was born in Kansas (Manhattan!)

However, I don't like any school whose mascot is a mythical bird named after a bunch of murderering thugs.


Murdering thugs existed on both sides of the line, and it was a long time ago. Of course the thugs from Kansas believed slavery was wrong and immoral, where the thugs from Missouri believed in the right to own slaves.

Rock Chalk.   

Yet one side of the line has learned from history, while the other still celebrates their murdering thugs.


 Where did the name Jayhawks come from?
In: United States History:Jayhawks
It is a combination of two birds, the jay torments intruders, and the hawk kills them. Prior to the Civil War and the admission of Kansas to the Union, the pro-slavery forces in Missouri attempted to make Kansas enter as a slave state. At every local election hundreds of armed Missourians invaded the territory in an attempt to control the elections. Kansans armed themselves to resist these intrusions. One of the most active commanders of these home guard units was C.R. Jennison and his company was called Jennison's Jayhawkers. Supposedly it started as the nickname for one man who said he was "jayhawking"
