General Banter / Riverfront Park

A dg course in Lawrence, turn left off of Masschusetts at the second stoplight north of I-70.  It's in Riverfront Park. Map of course near the entrance.

Tournaments / The 2006 Big "O"
« on: July 26, 2006, 03:23:10 pm »
I think the original big "o" was in 1990, or 91. We used Prarie Center and Oregon Trail parks. Oregon Trail had a temp 9 hole course put in for the tourney, and at least one year we had drunken dubs after the tourney there.

Swope / Seen a bobcat at swope...
« on: July 26, 2006, 03:18:11 pm »
My father-in-law is a farmer. In the winter he traps beaver, racoon, coyote, mink, and bobcat as a money making hobby. He has trapped many a bobcat over the years and has even had a couple of the larger ones (30-35 pounders) stuffed. They have some big teeth, but bobcats are usually extremely shy of humans, so like Kev said, unless it's rabid it won't mess wit ya. Kinda cool to see one though. Now, a cougar is another matter. They will stalk ya, and if they think they can kill you without too much of a fight, your in trouble.
I'd say it's possible to see a cougar in Swope Park, or Riverfront Park either one. Maybe even a sasquatch sighting in Riverfront Park would be possible. Check out for sasquatch sightings in your area.
I was wondering. Is this the Wild Kingdom forum?

Me and the Olathe Posse have been taveling over to Riverfront Park this week. If you haven't played it you should check it out. I've heard some folks say they didn't care for it, but we really dig it!

Winter Leagues / Advanced Homey Round?

Sounds like we're playing for the cow patty. I was gonna do the H2open, but since my crew is staying at prairie center, I think I will too. That way I can play dg in the morning and lounge at the pool in the afternoon. Anyone wanna join us, come on out. The h2 should be a great day too. So much dg-too little time! If your coming to play cow patty, bring quarters and singles.

I'd be down wit dat. Saturday at 10:00. 20 holes of 50 cent skins plus $1 for best score sounds good to me. It would best for me if only people that I routinely beat show up please. haha

Got any special rules to level it out for advanced players?  I'd love to play also but there is no way I can even think about keeping up with Arturo, Bobby or Pete....especially if it costs $25.

Do you know an advanced player that wants to play, Andy, or an intermediate? hahaha

Wyco Sunday morning? Does one need a special invitation to participate, or just cash? I would possibly like to try a round.....

General Banter / Re: pro disc golf course designer or not?

Quote from: "robertalan"
A pro disc golf course designer is not applicable in every situation.  For example, Lake Lenexa is not ready for a pro disc golf designer.  The park is going to add features in stages over the next 2-4 years.  Hiring a pro designer right now wouldn't make any sense.  Any course going in to this new park will be inevitably altered/tweaked/changed many times over the next few years.  It will be more ideal to hire a pro designer when the entire park is complete, and the flow of foot traffic in the park is finally determined.  The best use of a pro designer is where you have an entire park completely devoted to disc golf, with little or no conflict anticipated with joggers, dog-walkers, soccer moms, etc.  You want your final layout to be determined by a pro designer.  Otherwise I believe money would be wasted in hiring one.  Now if a pro designer would come out and design a course for free, then bring one in immediately.

What I am talking about isn't hiring a "professional course designer". I'm saying a course should be designed by a pro level disc golf player with a lot of tournament experience. This is what Hosfeld was writing about, and I tend to agree that someone that has played in a lot of tournaments at a variety of courses will most probably be able to provide a better design than a lower rated player that has not played many different courses.

General Banter / new courses in S Jackson county?

And if the city elects to install a dg course, consult a qualified dg course designer. I agree with Greg Hosfeld's article in the latest Disc Golf World. DG course design should be done by a pro level player with at least ten years tournament experience.

Forecast for Bonner Springs at 7:00 this evening calls for temps around 91 and winds out of the SSW at 12 mph. It's a hoilday weekend Friday night, sounds like a good night to get whacko at Wyco!
