Prairie Center / League ACE
« on: September 30, 2008, 07:16:29 AM »
Leo ACED hole #4 last night in league.

At the board meeting tonight we will discuss whether his round (and ACE) is valid, due to the fact he played the round with the use of Deano's shiny new golf cart.









Just kidding. Congrats on another league ACE Leo!

General Banter / Re: YOUR TOP TEN FAVORITE KC COURSES!
« on: September 23, 2008, 01:06:26 PM »
A top ten from a long time KCFDC member and well traveled player....

1. Waterworks (no explanation needed)
2. Wyco (come out on a mid-summer Friday league and see for yourself)
3. Swope (ancient trees, really kewl steel box clubhouse, and tossing across valleys=fun)
4. Prairie Center (well maintained, multiple CONCRETE tees on 5 holes, multiple pin locations, close to brown bag and my house, nuff said)
5. Rosedale top (central location right off I-35, great shot variation, classic course)
6. Cliff Drive (awesome mix of holes, will prolly move up my list once Jack quits messing around and pours some concrete and finalizes the layout, but even as is, a super course)
7. Blue Valley (needs carts, but the views and magnitude are amazing) 
8. P Hill (a lake, albino wallabys, screaming monkeys, and a really pleasent park)
9. Shawnee Mission (needs boxes and less armed rangers)
10. WYE (never been there but based on all my friends reports, it has to be better than California Trail, and DU has just too much of the luck element for my taste)

And, like I've said before, any course I'm on is my favorite at the time and I think it's so sweet to live in a metro with soooo many great courses and so many fun dg folks. We are truly blessed.

Tournaments / Re: Four States Open - Joplin MO - Sept 27th, 2008

The first concert I ever attended was in Joplin. It was Johnny Cash in 1968.

The DG course is in a great park. The last time I was there some of the baskets were mounted real low. I think they might have corrected that though.

1629
Humble pie...yummm. I'd be glad to have some, but of course the main ingredient is a lower score than the Throlatheans, and frankly, I just don't see that happening. Bwahahaha

Side bets? Anyone? Bueller?



Don't take me seriously. Just trying to drum up some interest and spirited, friendly competition.

Prairie Center / Re: Tee-off time Monday at 5:30
« on: September 15, 2008, 02:04:52 PM »
Both courses are great. I would have to say that Cliff has better topography for DG and is one of my favorite places to play.

1631
Do you mean the partial sponsorship we accepted from DGW? Whatever.

1632
Is there a team that will give us some competition, or will it be a walk in the park for the mighty Throlatheans? Any side bets from potential competitors, or are all fearful of the awesome skills of the mighty Throlatheans?

The sun is shining finally! League tonight at PC, and Cliff. The ground should be drying up, but if you want guaranteed level and dry tee box footing come on out to Oooooolathe.

WYCO / 09-12-08 League
« on: September 13, 2008, 08:49:06 AM »
It was raining at 5:15 and only 3 showed up for league. We waited in the shelter to see if it was going to let up. The tornado sirens started going off, the rain intensified, the Park Ranger pulled in and said "There's a big storm heading towards the park." The cell phone radar confirmed he was not joking. We continued to wait in the shelter, and knew the rock and concrete park shelter would provide some protection from the storm. The Park Ranger pulled back in, driving fast he drove right through the grass and shouted "A tornado just touched down 2 miles southwest of here". We all were ready to bolt when we saw it. Crossing the road west of the shelter near long #4 basket and heading towards #18 tee, was a small funnel dancing along the ground. It wasn't pulling up much debris and looked rather kewl. Unexpectdly, Dave takes off running towards it with a disc in his hand. He intercepts the funnel near the right side of #3's fairway and leaps into the air towards it. It was the coolest sight you would ever see, Dave flying along about 7 feet off the ground. Then, as being whirled around, I see Dave throw the disc. As he was being carried by #17 basket, he grabbed the top of the chain assembly and pulled himself free of the cloud. A few minutes later, the rain stopped and we all walked in the direction the disc went. After looking for almost an hour, Gus found it in the parking lot of the Agricultural Hall of Fame. That throw was close to 2500'!

No league due to the weather.

Next week tee time is 5:00. Sign up by 4:50.

Hmmmm. A one legged, carless, and broke Leo vs "the destroyer".

I think I'd have to put my money on Leo.
