 If you throw out of bounds, you shoot from the drop. It is a quite makeable putt from the drop. Of course, you could make a putt at the basket, bounce off and into the ob street again and again and again. I would expect there to be multiple circle 3's from the drop, however.

Does NHL stand for National Horseshoe League, or National Hari-Krishna League?

 Circular pads would be kewl. Keep in mind that a 5' x 15' x 5" thick pad will take approx 1.2 cubic yards of concrete and a 15' dia circle 5" thick will take 2.7 cubic yards of concrete. If you decide to go circular, I would suggest you go no smaller tha 12' diameter, which if 5" thick, would take 1.7 cubic yards of concrete.

 Just offering up my 2 cents worth on the subject here.... I would recommend getting the form lumber (2x6) to do 6 boxes. Do the excavation/fill, set the forms, making sure they are well oiled, get the subbase (earth or gravel) compacted, then pour out the 6. Wait a day or two, strip the forms and repeat until all 18 are done. Doing the work this way keeps it from being too overwhelming, and keeps you from spending a huge amount on form lumber.

 Where the pins are is where they will be for the WO. The only correction to Andy's list of placements is hole 3, which will be short.

 We could have set the course longer, but decided with playing Wyco the same day, why not have a medium length setup.

No post that has the DR mower in it can be stupid. In fact, if the DR mower is included in the post it can be nothing but BADASS.

The pins are set for the KCWO. Great job to Andy and Cindy for all the work, and to Adam for letting us borrow (again) the DR.

I think it's awesome that all over town the courses were getting prepped.

I had planned on helping with the stairs at rosey, but we needed to get some stuff done at PC. Hats off to Buckle and company at fixing the stairs!

a flat rate for league.... hmmm.

35 weeks x 5 nights a week x $5 per night = $875 for unlimited summer league play. Sounds like a deal!

You bunch of silly Sallys.

this string is FREAKING ME OUT !

It's almost as bewildering as the supposed "bi-monthly" FDM that came out with Jan-Feb on the cover of the first issue, and April-May on the cover of the second issue. What happend to March?

My partner did real good. We had a fun day. We got to -9 at hole 15, but didn't birdie 16 or 17. Shoulda been, coulda been. Luckily my partner parked 18 for a drop in bird. We are already looking forward to a repeat next year.

Rick, John, Jack, and the KCFDC did a great job with this event. The KCCC folks had to be impressed with the organization of the event, and with the huge turnout.

Do you know at what rating the split occurs? Is it like 966 and above is pro and 965 and below is am? That sounds like a good place to make the split to me !

General Banter / Re: What's your excuse for not practicing putting?
« on: April 29, 2008, 12:13:22 PM »
I don't have any one favorite, but....

1. It's boring
2. I'd rather play a round(s)
3. It's cold outside
4. Putting doesn't matter anyway (drive for show, and drop in)
5. Driving is more fun
6. Upshots are more fun
7. My back hurts and so does my kneee, ankle, elbow, neck....etc
8. It kills the grass in my backyard
9. My neighbors will think I'm weird (well, weirder)
10. Why wear my putters out practicing?

So keep all this in mind everybody, and don't practice putting. (it's easier for me to take skins if you don't)

token subliminal message:

don't practice, d o n ' t  p r a c t i c e  p u t t i n g , go play a round, drink some beer, d o n ' t  p r a c t i c e , mow the lawn, d o n 't  p r a c t i c e  p u t t i n g, you don't need the practice, do  not  practice  putting......
