Tournaments / CLUB Championships-picnic
« on: September 22, 2005, 07:59:54 AM »
Is there a club championship and picnic this fall?

I had an idea for a format that I would like to throw out....

Since we have the best club in the country, why not have a club championship week?
Round 1 would be at Olathe League on Monday.
Round 2 would be at Swope League on Tuesday.
Round 3 would be at Rosedale League on Wednesday.
Round 4 would be at Waterworks League on Thursday.
Round 5 would be at Wyco League on Friday.
The final round and picnic would be at Cliff Drive on Sunday.

I know a lot of folks couldn't or wouldn't want to play every league night, but I think this format would make for a great week of play, leading up to the final round and picnic/party.

General Banter / Parsons and Pittsburg and Ft.Scott

The course in Parsons has been there a long time. I believe it was put in as a memorial to a deceased love one. Pittsburg hasn't been in that long, but it is there. Ft. Scott has been in a while. Buckles friend, Danny had a lot to do with that one.

General Banter / Prarie Center-Olathe
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:25:34 PM »
In 1990 the Prairie Center Disc Golf course was planted. Ned Smethers was the designer and main driving force. He had help from various KCFDC members. Some people that helped were Ace Mason, Mike Mannering, and Mikey Edsted. Tom Butler came along in late 1991 and in 1992 Tom hand built and installed 18 matching double chain assemblies, and formed and poured 9 new tee pads. The baskets were later sold off and the funds used to help purchase our current baskets. The City of Olathe between 1990 and 1993 planted approximately 200 trees on the course, many of them per Ned and Tom's direction. Sometime after 1994, Ed Gonzales and the KCFDC redesigned the course and moved many of the tee pads and pin locations around. In 2005 Bob Hayett, Tom Butler, Bryan Guthrie, Andy Lewis, Dean Uhlman, Brad Meyrs, Rick Rothstein, Dan Forster, and the KCFDC redesigned holes 12 thru 16 and added a new long pad on hole 2.
In the Spring of 2005, Crazy John Brooks, who hadn't played Prairie Center in a long while, came to one of our Monday night leagues, and said "I haven't been here in a long time, but,  the tress have grown so well and the park is beautiful, in fact, it is heaven".

I've thought that for 15 years now.

I hope this brief history helps.
peace

General Banter / a balance
« on: August 11, 2005, 01:46:37 PM »
I'm gonna chime in on this topic. Personally, I don't care if a course is monster long, or a pitch and putt. I think what needs to happen when a new course is being designed is that the course par shoud be established early. When I play a course, I want to know what the designer thought the par should be, so I can play for par, or better. That's all we should want, a clear, obtainable, objective to strive for. If a course is designed to be a par 72, that's fine. There should be a balance of par 3s, 4s, and 5s. There should be some easy 3s and some hard 3s, and so forth. I do think the par for a course should  be attainable by a player that is possibly not a top pro. I would think if a course has a par 72, then somebody like Laron, or Eric McCabe, with a +-1000 rating should, on a good day be able to beat par by 5 to 7 strokes. Likewise, on the same course, a strong am player on a good day should be able to play it par, or maybe 1 to 2 under.
That's just my opinion.

Beginners / Leauge questions
« on: August 04, 2005, 02:37:47 PM »
A portion of league entry goes to the KCFDC. $1 goes into the ACE fund and rest is payed out to the winners. League is a great place to meet other DGers and to learn the game from more experienced players. League also can help you learn proper etiquette and how to compete in a tournament-like setting. Oh, and most importantly, there is often someone with a cold beer for ya. mmmmmm beer. I play a lot of non-league and a lot of league rounds. It's all good, and to each his own.

I would have to say that #7 is probably my favorite. I also like #1, #2, and #18 a lot.

Prairie Center / Glow Round
« on: July 26, 2005, 02:26:48 PM »
Actually, the my favorite league in town, WW glow, starts at 6:00 on Thursday nights. The glow season begins after the time change in the fall and runs til the time change in the spring.

Several of us in Olathe are considering running a glow league at Prairie center this coming fall. We are considering Monday nights. This is just a preliminary idea right now.

Don't use a flashlight at WW to light the basket. That is a no-no.

Hey Kan-man, it's kewl you guys are playin some glow. Can you post when the next time your gonna play will be? I'd also like to ask that if you put the glow rings on the baskets, please remove them when your finished, as they are litter. Thanks.

General Banter / Doubles/Mixed Doubles Interest?
« on: July 25, 2005, 07:18:38 AM »
Mixed dubs sounds like a great idea! I'd suggest a proper dress code be followed though, such as collared shirts for the men and wet T shirts for the ladies.

Prairie Center / 07-11-05 league
« on: July 20, 2005, 08:14:49 AM »
Warren,
There is a new players league at Rosedale as well. I would suggest you try both leagues. Of course at Rosedale you have to put up with that Klunel guy.

Prairie Center / League Scores
« on: July 20, 2005, 08:09:39 AM »
I started posting scores this summer for Olathe. I tried to follow Ted's method, as I feel he runs a great league and had a good system and the first system in place for posting the scores.
