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

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.

Advanced Men: If registered with the PDGA as an am with a rating above 934 you must play advanced. If registered with the PDGA as a pro with a rating below 970, you may play advanced.
Masters: (40 and older or turn 40 in 2008). Rating cannot exceed 934 if you're a PDGA pro masters player.

I don't know if I'll be in town that weekend, but, hypothetically, the way I read the division breakdown it looks like I can play adv masters. Is that correct?

When will the courses be set in tourney positions? Some out of towners might come in this weekend to practice the courses, and it's sometimes nice to have the tourney placements set the weekend before.

If you've often considered going to Wyco for a Friday night league, but thought, "it's too far", or "I won't get home until late", or "the course is toooo long", or any of a number of other lame azz excuses, tonight might be the time to head to Wyco.

There will be a smorgasboard of beer, as well as some surprises.

Can't make it by the 5:20 sign up? Come out anyway, hang out, drink ACE beer, enjoy the eve.

For early arrivers, the ACE beer should be on site by 4:40.

WYCO / 08-29-08 League
« on: August 30, 2008, 09:34:23 AM »
A beautiful, almost Fall like evening was enjoyed by the 19 golfers in attendance last night at Bonner Park. It took six years for the first ACE to be hit at Wyco, but, after I struck hole #5 last night there has now been 2 league aces in the last 3 weeks on the same hole. ACE beer and sodas (and other surprises) for all next week. Remember to be early. The 5:37 tee off last night allowed us to finish just as the sun sank below the horizon.

Dave Hemmeline  50 for $13
Arturro Villareal  54  for $7 (left before payout was complete, I'll pay you next week)
Nick Altieri  57
Andy Lewis  60
Deano Uhlman  61
Fred Netherton  62
Brett Long  63
Jesse Wallace  69

Tom Butler  54 for $8.50
Brian Gammon  54 for $8.50
Terry Adams  60 for $1.50 (I'll pay you next week)
Mark Morales  60 for $1.50 (same as Terry)
Jeff Hoglund  64
Mark Hogins  67
Kevin Montgomery  72
Becky Stebbins  88

Mike Coleman  70 for $6 KC KASH (Mike is the ACE whisperer, he has attended WYCO league twice in 6 years and both times he attended and ACE was struck !)
Leigh Ann Hoglund  73 for $3 KC KASH (good job!)
Marc Hoglund  74

Hope everyone had a fun time. I know I did !  ;D  Remember to be early next week, and come thirsty.

respectfully submitted,

I had my first tourney ACE at the Olathe Open earlier this month, and my first league ACE last night at Wyco.
It was on hole #5. I threw an orange star tee rex (169g) with the monkey island stamp from this springs tourney. Witnesses were Terry Adams, Brian Gammon, Mark Morales, Cindy, and Mr. Gus. It was a sweeping, fairly flat hyzer that crashed dead center in the chains. It was nearly identical to a shot I had 2 years ago in league with Doc and Kmont on my card, that unfortunately bounced out. Last night it stuck!

Woohoo! ACE beer and some other surprises are in store for all in attendance next Friday.

Yeah, I should have stated that I have not played Prairie Center or Shawnee Mission. Any course that causes me to have to cross the line into that God-awful state of Kansas automatically gets points deducted, hence Rosedale's place on my list. ;D

This is from Forbes this year:

In Depth: America's Best Places To Raise A Family
It's qualities like these that landed Hamilton County atop Forbes' list. Ozaukee County, Wis., and Johnson County, Kan. came in second and third. All earn high marks for their low cost of living, reasonably priced homes and short commute times. They also offer terrific schools, one of the most important characteristics to consider when choosing a place to raise a family.

Of course, Missouri is a great place too if you like messed up school districts, crappy roads, and meth labs.

Now, my list:
1. Which ever park I happen to be in at the time. Every one is more fun than my office.

not wanting to give in......but it is easier to get to off the highway.....but Cliff Drive is still closer to downtown.......KCMO...

Cliff Drive to 1200 main is 2.24
Rosedale to 1200 main is 4.39

Cliff Drive to 7th and Minnesota (Downtown KCK) is 4.57
Rosedale to 7th and Minnesoat (see above) is 4.88

So now that I did some research it is closer to both KC and KCMO downtown, so I stand by my stance!
