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.....

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.

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!

I must have left it there during some putting practice. Warren, if you can call me at 913-928-7154(work) or at 913-829-5912(home) I can come pick it up or we could meet at the course some time.

Hey Kev, who are you calling loco?

Cliff Drive / T-pads
« on: May 22, 2006, 12:08:48 pm »
I was wondering if any T-pads had been built at Cliff Drive yet? If not, is there a plan to do so?

I'll be over there for some leagues this summer when I am fully recovered.

Blue Valley / Tearing Up The Course!!!

Perhaps some "severe tire damage spikes" could be installed in their favorite acceleration lanes, or, of course, a 50 cal sniper rifle is very effective at ranges up to 1000 yards.

General Banter / Get with it KC!

I think another reason there isn't a league on Saturday or Sunday during the warm weather months is the fact that there are tournaments on a lot of the weekends that are within easy driving distance of KC, so a lot of the potential league players would be out of town.

I was in the horsepistol April 17 to April 21. I the was off work from April 24 to today, May 3. I am still not well, but am improving. The doctors say I should be 100% by the first of July. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers everyone. Hope to see you on the courses before long.
