Prairie Center / Re: Theft and vandalism reported at the course!!!

I notified the City.

All we can do is replace the stolen stuff and perhaps someday catch the fools that steal and destroy.

I'll do it for 20 cents per stroke, deal?

That sounds sorta like a Gorilla shuffle... ;D

This should be fun. The weather will be chilly, but not unbearable. The course grass is short, and the rough isn't too rough.

The lighted chains experiment will be interesting. I saw them last summer at Swope and they looked awesome.

Playin dubs, Birdland can be knocked out in a couple hours. Get a partner and be at Birdland around 5:45-6:00.  8)

Any teams forming up for this.....?

Current Bird positions are 1 long, 4 short, 10 short, 11 long, 12 long, 16 short, 18 short.

After thinking about it again, Jami has a good point about the flexibility-at least to some extent.  There might be a way to balance that flexibility...  I played with Harold the first round and he was not his usual self just because he had so much to take care of.  If he's going to go to all this work, i sure hope that he can play and play like he usually does. 

So an idea:  the good folks that want to play three rounds quickly make arrangements ahead of time.  maybe there could be a "speedy card" or two that have made arrangements before-they can arrange the 3 or 4 people on the card, can pay their five bucks per round all at once, turn in tags, and make arrangements to drop off score cards when they are done, that might make it easier on Harold so he can relax and enjoy his day. 

Also, set times in general would help people who can't make it to the first round but could make it to rounds 2 and/or 3, since they would know when to show.  Also, folks who were late also put stress on Harold--he was trying to accommodate them, which was hard for him to do.  If there are time certain starts, that will make people be on time, which really shouldn't be too much to ask for an event like this.  I mean, if they show up at 8:30 and the cards have left--at least they know they can play casual until round 2 starts at 11:00 or whatever the time might be set at.

That seems like a good way to balance things and be flexible for those who are on time and need to get moving, and at the same time let Harold not have to worry about people who are showing up late for the start plus make it easier for people to come up and play later rounds.  I know some people who thought about coming up later but didn't know the start times, and so were reluctant to drive all that way.

Again, i am just a newbie donating money to other players-just tossing ideas out there to try and help Harold!

Over the years of running PC league, Shawnee mission Leagyue, Wyco league, and GLOW, I have found that running the league typically throws me off my normal average around 2 to 3 strokes.... ;D

10 players out in the continuing nice fall weather. Temps in the upper 60's and light NW winds at 9 mph is how it was.

Bryan Guthrie & Tom Butler             49 for $30 (combined team age = 102 years  :P)
Mike Jensen & Greg Seher                51 for $20
Leevarn Sarvis & Andy Lewis            52
Dan Zink & Cade Garrelts                 53
Steve Thimmesch & Dean Uhlman     55

No ACE hit so the fund increases to $224.

The first GLOW round of season 10 was played on this night. The weather was unusually warm (72) and there were light winds.

If memory serves me correctly, in the previous 9 seasons we have only had 7 rain outs or freeze outs total. Personally, I have only missed running GLOW 2 times in 9 years.  8)  I wanted to thank all the players that show up and play, and the few that occasionally move a basket or two or help with the of shuffling the cards. 

There were 9 players out this week, with 3 of the 5 teams within 1 stroke of each other at the end in a tight contest.

Dean Uhlman & Andy Lewis                50 for $12.50 each
Steve Thimmesch & Leevarn Sarvis     51 for $5.00 each
Tom Butler & Anthony Puryear            51 for $5.00 each
Dan Zink & Brian Corneilius                55 
Cade Garrelts & Cali Cade                   57

The payout table I have used since 2005 does not have the payout for when a single Cali is entered. Since I did not have adequate singles (please pay in with exact change) and the table not having the Cali payouts, I made a mistake in payout and over payed ($0.75 each guy) the two teams that were 1 stroke behind the winners. The winners I owe $1.50 more each and will get it at next GLOW they show up for. The payout table will be revised to include single Cali for use in the future. The correct amounts for 9 players with a single Cali will be $28.00 ($14.00 each) for first and $17.00 ($8.50 each).

No ACE hit so the fund increases to $214.

Same time (6:00 every week at PC). Come out and get yer GLOW on.  ;D

Prairie Center / GLOW begins tonight 10-20-14

As we have every Fall for the past 9 years we will gather for a round of $5 random draw GLOW dubs with a 6:00 card draw for partners.

Season 10 commences tonight at Prairie Center.  :) The ACE fund starts at $205.

We draw at 6:00 sharp. If you are late, you prolly won't get in.

The weather looks great! Let's GLOW!

So the Disc Golfers cleared out the woods for Disc Golf fairways and the bikers get to ride down them now? That seems fair.  ::)

Yep. They like us golfers better than the scouts, but the scouts pay $ to use the land. We only beautify it, occupy it, and enjoy it 51 weekends out of the year.

The forecast is calling for around five to seven inches of rain.  What is the plan for Down Under on Saturday if it's a swamp infested mess?

Play and afterwards throw your shoes away and enjoy the provided lunch and kegs.  ;D

Lakeside Hills / back 9
« on: October 09, 2014, 04:25:39 pm »
This weekend, 11th and 12th, there will be approximately 1500 boy scouts camping in the park north of the course.
Although only a few holes may be impacted (14, 15, 16) I would recommend not playing the back nine.  :(

The City asked me to get this info out.

I was just stating facts. It's your show, and you do a great job! I just remember how the fun factor goes down when slogging thru mud. I doubt anyone will break their leg or anything, like from playing du on ice. Maybe we will get lucky and it won't be muddy at all
 ::) I just thought everyone shows up, the field gets split, and half go to another course. I see how that could be really difficult.  ;D

With the rain, down under may become a bit muddy. Wyco plays well in the wet...  ::)
