Mike you have this all wrong.  There is no dress code that says you have to look pretty.  or wear slacks or knickers or any of that.  Nor does what someone wears outside of their sport matter.  Look at Josh anthon.  Basketball shorts, a baggy polo, and a crooked hat.  Dood.  That is within the "dress code"  They just don't want us to look like an amateur sport.  Which is what some guy with a beer belly and no shirt would look like.  This isn't the gestapo here.   And I'll tell you what.  Most of these disc golfers who are really good.   I bet you most of them love ball golf, tiger woods, and all that go along with the sport.  Including the clothes.  I love getting a new dri fit shirt.  It helps you play at your best.  Hence the "performance" value.   Really, you shouldn't worry about this.  I think it is only a big deal to a select few people.  Silly my friend.

Use Firefox with built in spell checker for form fields.  Of course, if you just ignore the red underlined words and click "Post", it won't help ya.

Actually I do... But when the word corresponds with another word that just isn't the word you are using then... wallah no red lines

I think you all are silly.  Minus Kevin.  Not that I agree or disagree with him ( I agree ) but MMA?  X GAMES?  Is this what you want our sport to model itself after?  Come on.  No one has ever asked you to wear a collared shirt I'm sure.  No one will.  Unless you get to a higher level of play.   And at that point there should be a shroud of professionalism.  Most tournaments give you a dri fit shirt or polo of some kind these days.  Just throw that on.  It isn't much of a dress code.  Nor is it enforced nearly as much as any other sport.    I think getting all bent our of shape because someone wants you to be clothed while representing our sport isn't that bad of idea.

And to reiterate what Kevin said.  Get off the computer and go run a tournament.  non sanctioned / sanctioned, what ever!   Jack wants to run a PDGA tourney let him!  You aren't going to get out there and do it.

I'm glad you have enjoyed disc golf so far.   One thing I would say is that Kansas City has SO many courses to offer new - intermediate players.  Swope / Shawnee Mission / Down Under / Prairie Center / Pleasant hill / Rosedale 3/4 of the year and Water Works 1/2 the year.  I think being your first year in the scene you have been able to experience what some of our courses (mainly Rosedale) can become.  But on a whole that and many other courses are usually set short.   A few times out of the year they are tipped out for us "long arms" enjoy.  Due to technology in discs and plastics the game has evolved where no the people picking it up are young people and these newer faster discs make it easy to throw those distances with little effort.  The courses are reflecting the way the game is going.   I think length if done properly would be enjoyable to all who play.  Not just the guys who can throw 400+.    Take hole #8 at rosedale on the island.  I'm sure you enjoy that hole.  A 4 is a good score on that hole.  Anyway, for the most part the more frequented courses are in very beginner friendly placements so I wouldn't worry about that too much.  That is for use long arms to whine about. :)

Bill and I will be out there tommorrow morning laying out the mini course design.  I would love to play a round backwards there.  That would be fun.  Lets just have a backwards round for 10 bucks random doubs

i think the biggest bagger award is still safely resting on the "broad, muscular" shoulders of matt "humble" hummel.

Humble is definately the biggest bagger...but I think he learned the skill from you, Palmer ;D

Nice Dick!

Be careful with that wording, Keizer!
