Prairie Center / 12-15-08 GLOW
« on: December 16, 2008, 07:39:41 AM »
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

Yep.

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 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"

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.
