Jamie, I will see if I can find enough to fill a bucket.  Not many errant shots outside tennis season.

Old Pike / Re: Old Pike OB Hole 10
« on: November 05, 2010, 10:01:29 PM »
Danger,  the neighbors' yards are always o.b. But, its tough sometimes to tell where the neighbors' yards stop and the fairway begins.  In a tournament, the OB will be run from the last fence post along the inner (south) edge of the trees closest to the fairway.  That way there is no question that we are not playing in the neighbors' yards.  The string or paint runs from the last fence along the inner edge of the trees until you get to the yard beyond the pin. 

In casual play and league, we use a line from the last fence post along the outer (north) edge of the trees (closest to the houses), which is more in line with the property boundary; but, also gets closer to the neighbors yards.  We treat it as if there is an imaginary line running from tree to tree.  As long as you are inside the tree "lines" on each side of your disc, you are in bounds.   

 If you throw a roller, you don't need to worry about ob anyway.  Although, I doubt you have the guts to even try a roller on that shot!

Sunset is at 7:05 tonight.  I would like to have sign ups by 5:25, draw for doubles by 5:30, and tee off no later than 5:40.  Its tough to start much earlier.  By October 12th, I want to move back to 6 pm.  We could play as many as we can in the light and switch to glow as the light fades.

Overall, the tournament was a success.  The lightning put a damper on the cannonball contest; but, everyone seemed to have a great time on the links and chowing between rounds!  The division winners were Leo D. in Open, Ted K. in Masters, Zack Kirby in Am, and Amando in Womens.  Max Hilgers won the putt of the day contest but left before we could give him his trophy and prize.  Overall, we raised about $700 for pads before expenses for discs.  We hope to get started soon on setting up forms to pour pads; although, we likely may have to pour six at a time as funding allows.  Thanks for all that helped get the course ready, donated prizes, and sponsored or adoped holes!

Thanks for the help  getting that damn cart out of the ground.  That saved me hours of blood, sweat and tears!  It wouldn't have been so bad if all the tree roots and not been intertwined with the cart.

Yes, Virginia, there is swimming after Labor Day.  They will have the pool open for us and will have life guards on duty.  Most pools do close at Labor Day; but, Old Pike stays open on weekends through September. 

Regarding the disc.  It is an Aviar Putter with an Old Pike Shark stamp.  Its a nice design and everyone can always use another putter.

We can save the cart for you Monty!  There are also a couple of old tires that Ted Keith dug out of the woods and you could use those to soup up your cart.

Great, now I have to go back to the drawing board.  At OP, I tried to use the most direct route.  But, in some cases, the likely actual route will be significantly longer.

Tournaments / Old Pike Fund Raiser Tournament
« on: September 10, 2010, 06:15:17 PM »
September 18th Fundraiser tournament at Old Pike Country Club!  This has been posted under the Old Pike Course; but, I am not sure it has made it to general discussion.  The purpose of the fundraiser is to put all funds into course improvements, specifically concrete tee pads!  Once we get real tee pads, we hope to host periodic traditional tournaments as well as charity events.   

Tentative Schedule:  8:30 Registration
                            10:00 First round, singles format divided by divisions
                            noonish:  Lunch provided
                            1:30 ish   Second Round
                            Afterwards swimming and cannonball contest.

Entry will include a custom Old Pike disc for first 50 who pre-register.  Lunch provided, swimming afterwards, and a one day family swimming pass good through June 2011.

Prizes for CTP and longest drive. 

Cost:  $25 for pre-registration, which  is appreciated so we can plan for food, number of life guards needed, etc. 
Family members welcome to swim for $2 fee.  We will also have an ace fund and pay out half with a ctp if no one hits it.

So far, we have prizes sponsored by The National Golf Club (round of ball golf for four people, shirts, hats, etc.)
                                                  Calloway Golf:  on line gift certificate
                                                  Gladstone Bowl:  Birthday party and bowling (or just bowling if you want)
                                                  Cafe at Briarcliff

We have some cool custom trophies on the way. 

Thanks to hole sponsors:  DiscGlover, Rambo, Roxie, and MT and to our pad sponsors:  Pete Cashen and Claymark Homes (Ben Hansen)

Also, thanks to Ted Keith, who is adopting the cookie cutter as part of our adopt a hole program. 

And, you can register on line at Discgolfdicks.com thanks to disc parker. http://www.discgolfdicks.com/Events.html

Please come out for a day of fun and help us get this course completed!

We need a laser range finder to get accurate measurements.  Does anyone have one available? 

Thanks for getting us updated.  I plan to do a little work on the course over the next few days.  Saturday, I hope to be there by ten for a little work and hopefully, you and I can get a few things done Tuesday at ten.

I love glow; but, its too early for that.  We need to move up doubles league to 5:30 next week to finish in the light.  But, its tough to move it up much earlier.  At some point, we will convert to day/glo.

Adoption a hole could take many forms.  The cost for concrete will depend on the size of the pad, and we haven't priced signs yet.  But $200 should buy a tee sign and a yard of concrete, which would build a pad 3.5 inches thick and about 5 by 12 feet.  Some of the pads could be smaller and some may warrant different dimensions or unique pads such as a wedge or fan shape.   

It would be great for people to adopt a hole financially or just help finish and maintain a hole.  A lot of the holes still need clearing around the edges and amenities like benches, trash cans, bag holders, etc.  But, concrete pads and tee signs would give us the core items for playing and the other items are finishing touches. 

I plan to adopt the hole with the knotty tree and Ben Hansen expressed interest in buying the pad for the original hole two, which would probably be the best hole 1.  Glover likes the lake shot.  (That hole could use two or three pads for variety; but, we wouldn't need full size pads for the short shots.)

More good news!  Thanks to our new tee pad sponsor: Ben Hansen, who is sponsoring the pad on the original two on behalf of Claymark Homes. 

In addition, special thanks to Disc Glover, who has adopted a tee pad and sign for $200.  He said he didn't want anyone else on the sign for his tee pad; so, he wanted to buy the concrete and the sign.  It will interesting to see what name he comes up with for the hole.   Thanks to both of you for helping us get a great start towards getting this course finished the right way!   

If anyone is interested in adopting a hole to help improve it.  Or adopting a hole with concrete and sign, please let me know.   Ultimately, we hope to have benches, bag holders, etc on every hole.  But, one step at a time.     

Also, a new pin setting today on hole 9 (the hole shooting back down towards the overflow pool from the pond.)

Things are shaping up nicely for the fundraiser on September 18th.  We would like to thank our early pad sponsors:  The Godfather (Pete Cashen) and Rambo (an old friend who passed through town, played Old Pike, and offered to sponsor a hole).  For anyone interested in making a permanent contribution to the course, please adopt a hole if you can.  The cost of one yard of concrete is about $100 and that should buy concrete for a pad about five ft by 12 ft.  Its an opportunity to make a lasting contribution and have your name associated a tee pad. 

Also, special thanks to the National Golf Club, who is providing numerous prizes including a round for four people to play that lesser golf sport (some refer to as ball golf) at the Deuce.   I am still working on more prizes, so if anyone has any disc related, golf related, sports related, shark related, gift certificate related, or any unique prizes, please let me know so we can add it to contest prizes or players' packs.  Does anyone have a spare cannon ball lying around the house? 

Ted has helped us make up some flyers that we will post at various courses; but, the original logistics are the same. 
You can register on line at Discgolfdicks.com thanks to Disc Parker.  Also, you can register at Tuesday doubles, or the snack bar on the weekends.  Or, if you see me, Kevin, or Ted during the week, we can sign you up. 

If you have questions, please let Ted or me (Mike T) know.  Let's get rolling on these tee pads!
