Prairie Center / Re: Saturday League
« on: December 04, 2008, 07:53:04 am »
The last couple of years there hasn't been many "pros" out for Saturday 11:00 league at Prarie Center, but come on out. It's a good time. You'll probably learn a few things and have fun. Be at the shelter nearest the restroom at 10:45. Bob Hayett runs it. He drives a little white car. Bring five to ten bucks and your discs. You don't have to be a member. It's usually random draw dubs for $5. It's usually done by 2:00.
   
The Rosedale Downunder Saturday 12:30 league is where more of the "pros", and in fact, where a large number of people (one week there were almost 1 million players) play in the winter. The trees and hills block a lot of the wind, and although the entry is higher ($10), the payout is better. It's a good time too.

I'm thinking about them. I'll call the OB tonight. At first I thought only 10 shoulb be affected, but perhaps we should say short of, on or acroos the trail on 15 is ob, and right of it on 16 is ob. The problem is where do you play from if your ob?
Any thoughts? I'll listen to all ideas, but since I am Supreme Olathe GLOW Commander I'll make the call tonight. What do ya all want? More OBs? I do think on the trail on 14 is not too fair. 15 and 16 I'm leaning towards more obs, but should we have a drop zone on the trail for both holes? So many decisions. I just wanna play some golf.

It's dry, the winds are gonna be light, the temps not too bad, there is a substantial ACE fund, so what are you waiting for?  ???

New OB on hole 10 as the walk trail is paved now. On or across the walk trail is OB.

Speed golf normally involves as many discs as you chose to carry, but whether there are falling putts and whether you have to is left up to the person keeping tally.  In general, I use a mini if needed, but do allow falling putts.

Correct. I agree in speed golf you can use as many discs as you want. The one disc game I was talking about is not speed golf as much as a relay game, where the sqaud of players justs trys to get one disc all the way around the course.

I've seen others jogging and playing before, so yesterday afternoon I thought I'd try it out. I kept the stopwatch running from when I started on 1 to when I putted out on 18 at Prairie Center. I shot a 54 in 22 minutes-9 seconds. I think if the course is empty I can shoot a 54 or better under 18 minutes. It's a lot of fun except for the chest pains and leg cramp part.

What I wanna try sometime is to get a team of four, and by stationing the team at various points along each hole, see how fast they can get one disc all the way around the course. It would be fun to get two or three teams and have a race around the course, with each team trying to get one disc all the way around the course fastest. I'd say the rules would be just like regular disc golf, and you could only throw the disc to play a hole. (no throwing it from basket to tee box to save time) What disc to use? I think a Roc or Buzz. I'd guess a four man team could get one Roc all the way around Prairie Center set fairly long in under twelve minutes. Maybe under ten minutes?

General Banter / Lake Lenexa progress report
« on: November 12, 2008, 01:31:25 pm »
The P & R informed me yesterday they are planning on having the course design starting soon, with fairway clearing and course installation this winter/spring, with the course ready for play in Spring of '09. As of today they plan on hiring a course designer from Texas named John Houck to design the course layout for them. I believe the city will either do the installation work themselves, or contract it to be done. I have made them aware that we have many hard working volunteers at their disposal as well.

Of course how many times have we heard a course will be open by a certain time and it not happen? Hopefully this one will go in and we'll have yet another great place to fling em.
