Prairie Center / Re: League tomorrow
« on: October 27, 2008, 07:13:38 AM »
I plan on being there around 4:20, and if I can get 2 or 3 more starting as close to 4:30 as possible. It's the last night of summer league. next week GLOW commences at 6:00.

I talked with rusco last weekend. The way i understand it is on Saturday, November 8th is a one day B tier in Jones park. On Sunday November 9th is a one day B tier in Peter Pan park. One way to get info on the Kansas scene is to look at the KDGA website. There is a link to it on our KCFDC home page.

Competition calls it is the same as worst shot.

666 like your going to play works pretty good for pick yer partner dubs, however, in random draw it is possible the outcome of the round will be decided before a shot is thrown. Of course, even in best shot random draw that can be true as well.

I just hope everyone comes out and word of the strange, smelly and hairy sasquatch type creatures that have been spotted near the park doesn't get out, nor the storys of the missing disc golfers whose body parts have been found in the tree line near hole 4 are leaked. Then of course there are the tales of the ghost-spirit thingy that frequents the Ag Hall of Fame right across from the 666' hole 13. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I was up working on my mulit-engine pilots license yesterday. The old plane I was in used to be a fire fighter plane in Oregon. I was talking about the new course so we took a pass over it for a lookee see. The ole geezer flight instructor started teling me about these drums he brought back from Nam that he had out behind the hangar. He said they sprayed tons of this stuff over there and it killed the jungle real quick, so today we are gonna load up 6700 gallons of Agent Orange and fix them fairways up right. He said it will be real easy without anti-aircraft fire coming up like back in '71.

We are conjuring up a glow round for Halloween instead of league play.

Tracy, correct me if you are wrong, but you will not be running league on that night??

Tom and I have been thinking about a 6:00 random doubles in some sort of 6-6-6 format.

Costumes (with actual effort) will be awarded a six pack of adult beverages before the round and the bset one will recieve an assortment of plastic from yours truely.

Most likely a non-club event in order to keep payout at a maximum with no ace fund.

Any thoughts?

I put alot of effort into my costume a couple years ago and didn't get anything but COLD!!!!  On my head where I shaved it.

When you came to Olathe GLOW in costume a few years ago, you won the best costume award, which if I remember correctly was a premium disc of some sort.

Sunset on Friday the 31st is 6:20, so league, even with a 4:30 start would be hard pressed to finish in the light. It sounds like a Halloween costume wearing, beer swilling, random dubs, disc golfin, party night is in the works.

Good job on the work. I'm sure it's a very nice OB. One last thought on making this hole more interesting; planting trees works too and is a gift that last a lifetime.
Are the piles of debris still in 7's fairway? I was going to drive my pickup and move them to the burn pile this eve if they are and I can get a few helpers.

I just don't see the need to spend $ and manhours on this when (at least for me) getting a 3 on this hole is already a rarity. It will be very annoying to crush a drive out where I would have had a chance to reach the green in 2 but instead be out of bounds. Likewise, it will be very annoying to crush a drive, be in bounds, but on my up-shot land OB 45' away, where I might have been able to still save a 3, but instead be OB. Maintaining the approximately 1000' of OB will be a chore too.

I play em as they are presented, but this just seems silly.

Will these paint lines also be marked with flags or stakes at approximately 100' centers along the line, or something else that can be seen from the tee so players know where they will be penalized for landing?

The stats shouldn't be to hard to figure out. There will be a lot more 5's, 6's, 7's and 8's.

Personally I don't care for OB that has to be constructed and maintained, but, hey, it's your dime and time.

I'm pretty sure Deano was there Monday.

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!

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.
