General Banter / Thoughts on the Grip Equipment disc golf bag
« on: August 30, 2011, 09:51:18 AM »
Is this bag really worth $200.00?  My time on the waiting list has come and now I'm starting to second guess it's worth.  Thoughts?

General Banter / Possible KC Tournament Sponsor?
« on: August 29, 2011, 10:43:21 AM »
I've been into that outdoor equipment store Backwoods at 135th and Metcalf a couple times over the last few months.  There is a guy that works there whom I struck up a conversation with.  He mentioned that he plays disc golf and had met with Keen regarding their disc golf shoe (Milo 2) and carrying it in the shop.

Anyway, I was in there this past weekend and one of the managers/sales associates said that they were going to have a meeting this week with headquarters (Austin, TX) to determine what role disc golf was gonna play moving forward.

I thought this might be a possible sponsorship opportunity for next years 30th KCWO.  Just thought I would make the powers that be aware.

Blue Valley / #14 at Blue Valley
« on: August 23, 2011, 09:49:50 AM »
I was out playing Blue Valley over the weekend and was curious what is par on hole #14?  It plays like a 3 but just wanted to confirm.

Also, I recorded par for the course in the current setup as 69.  Can someone verify that as well?  Thanks!

Is this our very own Pete Cashen sporting a HukLab cap with a babe on each arm?

Go Pete!

Anyone know what happened to the private course in Baldwin City?  Looks like the website no longer exists:

Club Archives / Finals at Blue Valley
« on: July 31, 2009, 01:24:01 PM »
Forgive me if I missed it but does anyone have any idea what time the Open finals will get underway at Blue Valley tomorrow?  I know the Open division tees at WaterWorks at 8:00 AM.  Is it safe to assume early afternoon?

Cliff Drive / Well, well, well.....
« on: May 18, 2009, 09:54:54 AM »
I made it out to Cliff Drive on Sunday morning and was quite impressed with what Jack and crew have done out there.  Playing the front 9 out there, I was reminded somewhat of Kaposia Park in Minneapolis.

I also enjoyed the homeless gal sleeping on Hole 1.  I decided to skip my shot at the basket because she was sleeping and as we're walking to Hole 2's tee, she sits up and I say, "How's it going?"  She replies, "Wimp".  She then says, "Are you enjoying your Sunday in the park with a picnic?".  Classic.

Anyway, had a great time and I can't wait to get back out there later this week.

I purposely didn't bother calling Jack because his reply would have been something along of the lines of "Did you know that Cliff Drive is a disc golf course?".  ;-)

General Banter / Aviar Driver or Aviar Putt and Approach
« on: April 06, 2009, 11:12:27 AM »
Hello:

I picked up a Star Aviar over the weekend at the Capital City Classic as part of my players package.  It was an LS Discs stamped Aviar.  The white sticker on the bottom just says "Star Aviar" so can I safely assume this is an Aviar Driver and not a Putt & Approach?

What's the difference in the Aviar Driver and the Putt & Approach?  Seems like this Aviar has a little more dome than the standard Putt & Approach disc I've seen in the past.

Just curious,

General Banter / Anybody else catch Jack Lowe on TV last night?
« on: February 06, 2009, 03:09:34 PM »
Jack Lowe was on WDAF Fox 4 last night.  The footage was of a job fair in Overland Park where T-Mobile was one of the companies recruiting folks for Call Center jobs.  You can still see it on:

Scroll down on the right side and select page 2 of the Top Videos.  The clip is entitled "Crowd Swarms..."

General Banter / Official PDGA Magazine for 2009
« on: February 06, 2009, 09:48:01 AM »
Perhaps this has already been discussed and I missed it but I received my electronic PDGA Newsletter today and it says that the official PDGA Magazine for 2009 will be DiscGolfer edited by our very own Rick Rothstein.  Congratulations Rick!

I've always been partial towards Disc Golf World News simply because I've seen it evolve over the years from the black and white Columbia Disc Golf News (?) into a full color glossy magazine.  I'm assuming that DiscGolfer will be similar to Disc Golf World News and I won't have to read about disc catching dogs?   ;D

« on: October 02, 2008, 10:57:50 AM »
Just wanted to let everyone know that in addition to Ace Hardware, Drop Zone Extreme Sports in Olathe is now selling discs.  They have a pretty big selection of Innova plastic.  They are also closer to Prairie Center than Ace Hardware.  They are located at 407 S. Parker St. right next to the liquor store.  How convenient.  Check them out.
