Winter Leagues / Re: Olathe Winter League

Minutes for the Newsletter = Chappy likes Olathe (Kind of means you like Kansas....hmmmm...Kansas Jayhawks....hhmmm...you 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.

Mizzou-RAH


 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"

WYCO / Re: basket missing at wyco 12-14

I'll put up $100 for information that leads to the return of the missing Wyco basket, and the arrest of the thief. Anybody want to join  me? Perhaps if the reward is high enough someone that knows the thief may be persuaded to talk.

There are actually 3 club minis every weekend. Olathe, DU, and PH. I don't think Slant was b%tchin, just pointing out that the payout is remarkably low, and I agree if PH is only sending a buck to the club, that's what Olathe should do.
I may be mistaken, but I believe the Saturday Olathe thing was being played before DU was in the ground. If Olathe moves to Sunday, then we have to choose PH or Olathe, and since a lot of the ThrOlatheans travel to PH, that would make for a conflict as well. No easy solution. What I wanna know is where is Homie?

Sometimes in the coldest part of winter when there be ice and snow on the ground it is nice to play Olathe because we have dry, non-slip surface tee pads. If we wanted to try something new to possibly get more attendance, how bout bring your partner dubs for $10 or $20 per person?

Thanks Coop. The best time to clear em off is immediately following and as soon after the snow event, before players have a chance to pack it onto the concrete.

It's not "my league", it's a rogue league and this particular OB question will be discussed and perhaps voted on by those in attendance Monday. All I do is collect the money, pay out the winners, keep the ACE fund secure, try to have a light supply, shovel snow off the tee boxes, annonce which tees to use, and call out the OB, (which has been discussed with the core group) and try to help all my DG friends have a little escape and fun.


With statements like this, "I suppose we could put new pin placement in on every hole at about 110', so everyone that plays has a chance at aceing every hole.", I suppose we could add saying dickish things to the list.


Hey Thuggy, don't be giving Dick credit for my sarcasm, and I suppose raher than 110' we could set em at around 75' to better suit your ability.  ;D

We can certainly change the OB on 15 if the majority feels it is unfair to have to throw the approx 215' across the trail. Of course one could always throw to the right of the trail (due east off the tee) to advoid OB. If we call it not OB, then it won't be OB further up the hole either.

As you know, I'm all for OB.  However, try to implement it in a fair manner.   On hole #15, a high percentage of players can make it across that path without much problem. So why punish those that can't make it or sometimes barely make it with their longest throws?  It's like taxing the poor and leaving the rich alone. Playing off to the right is still a built in extra stroke. If you want to add OB on that hole, my suggesting would be to designate any tall grass/brush to the east of the path as OB. Only the mowed grass would be in bounds.  That way the rich have to deal with OB considerations from the tee, not just grip it and rip it. The poor then have to deal with the OB, to a lessor extent, on their up shot.

But like bob said, your league, run it as you see fit.

I just want everyone to be happy with the rule and have fun, because it is just a game to play to have fun.

We could always just disband the Monday Prarie Center GLOW, and Cindy and I will quietly disapear wth the ACE fund (when it reaches 3 mil) and retire somewhere in the Caribean.

I haven't actually seen this walking path but why is it OB short of the path if you clear the pond? I would think that since the pond is obviously OB and you want to avoid landing on the path itself that making the area between the pond and the path OB should not be a standard OB area. For doubles or special circumstances it adds challenge but for day-to-day play making standard OBs like the pond and simply on the walking path the default makes more sense to me.

Short of it is OB because it cuts across the normal throwing lane, then turns and parallels the fairway, and finally turns again and runs perpindiicular to the fairway up by the long pin setting. I didn't think the way I called it when the path got paved is too difficult in doubles, but we'll have a quick vote Monday.

Post would work, along with a line on the path, but you would really need a line from the posts and trail to the west down to the edge of the pond. Also,The mower guys wouldn't be to keen on posts.
I suppose we could put new pin placement in on every hole at about 110', so everyone that plays has a chance at aceing every hole.

It's just for GLOW. In doubles it shouldn't happen that both players can't get across. It's only about 215'.

Maybe it is too hard. I'll consider making no OB on 15 if the majority of GLOWERS think that's how it should be. Personally, I hate most OB, but in this case I think it works well.

The city has not finalized the contract with the course designer yet. We need firemen running the government to get r done.

I'm hoping we can get close to the dam, and even have to walk across it between holes. It's really kewl and is even lit up at night.

I can hear it now.... "great dam shot", or, "that damn hole", or "I hate that dam hole".... etc, etc.
