Would it be possible for me to walk the course with some of you during league play?  I am just now starting out and watching some excellent people play, I think would really benefit my game.

Just show up and play, that's what I do. I know I don't have a chance to cash, but I figure the $5-$6 to play is well worth the experience and camaraderie. In my experiences playing league (which are few and far between), I've found the other players to be mostly welcoming and helpful. Not only will you begin to pick up on the rules of the game better, you might even get some friendly advice on throwing from others on your card.

Shut up .. No one likes you.. :)

The reason they were kicking the ground and waiting because they were seeing if the ground was hard enough to support those trucks.  Which it was not and is not.  They were able to cut the trees but until we get a HARD freeze or little to no precip for a week or so. They can't take the chance on forming more ruts in the hillside

It is good to let them know we are willing to work out there for political reasons.

Singles is fine during the DAY.. At night it can be discouraging.

Tracy, I think you need to replace the batteries in your sarcasm detection meter...

 :D Keizer, now that was good!

And yes Tracy - if you don't change your batteries you might at LEAST want to read the previous posts in a thread before you comment on one in the middle  ;) --- and I promise to work on my nerd hieroglyphics to avoid confusion.  :D :D :D


Anyone who uses that many Smiley faces has got to be a nerd.

We're at that point where nearly every weekday will play host to two different leagues this summer.   Should this topic be added to this months EC meeting for voting?

This is the schedule I propose.

Monday: Cliff and PC
Tuesday: Swope and SMP
Wednesday: Rosedale 
Thursday: WW and Black Hoof
Friday:  Wyco and Legacy (what sort of league do they plan to run?)
Sat: PH

If you aren't proud to be a member of the KCFDC by now... I mean come on... We are debating when to schedule leagues for courses because they are doubling up.   Do you really think there are other clubs with this problem?

Excellent.  Good work, I was going to call them about it but I was waiting for you.

Ok, I know that I am a newbie and that I stink.  My forehand drives, I can send the disc far down the fairway; however, when I throw RHBH, my disc goes nowhere.    After playing with someone who is much better he told me that I am opening up to quickly and just using my arm only.   I am sure that he is correct.  Is there any one who plays at SMP regularly that wouldn't mind hanging out with me for a round.  I would like to be able to throw farther than my wife who doesn't even use the X-step. 


Joe for $20 I'll come out to SMP and give you a 2 hour lesson.  I'll video tape your throw and show you what you are doing wrong and try to give you suggestions on how to better your over all game.   If you don't feel like you learned anything the lesson is free.

After sleeping on it I'm sorry I even posted in this thread. You're right, Dick, about the course's best interests being at heart when this went down, and that's what should have mattered most to me. Personally, I only call the fuzz over extreme emergencies, and I'm not sure park grass being torn up constitutes an emergency.

Be that as it may, I said I wasn't there so I shouldn't have passed judgment on anyone as if I was there.  Sorry guys.

*kumbaya, my lord, kumbaya*

I just like to argue personally.

We may but I think the solution might be starting at the base and cutting it into pieces.  They all have been uprooted from the hill and are resting against other still standing trees.  My fear is we will lose those trees if we don't act soon. Or someone.

I would have to say that to me it sounds like the guy thought his big wheel could do off roading in a public park which we work very hard to keep nice for our Disc Golf game.  I am glad to see that someone will come out and take care of people doing things that damage our parks.  Boy if other parks like Cliff Drive and Blue Valley had that kind of response time I think our parks would be a better place.  I think that it's silly to argue that the golfers who called and reported someone tearing up their course as being a DICK.   

#1 - I am THE dick.  There shall be no other dicks before me unless properly named or proven to be such. 

#2 - Call the cops.. Please.  Continue to do so.  Keep our parks clean and beautiful. 

#3 - If the cop felt that this act required a ticket and not just a nudge to get the truck out then obvisouly this guy was doing something he should not have been doing.  And I agree.  Those poor old people who live at that park area shouldn't have to pay for this jaggoffs decision making.  I always side with the golfer who has the courses best interest at heart.  GOOD JOB and keep up the good work.  I think we should stop talking about it at this point because its the same conversation over and over.

On hole #10 there are ALOT of trees down on the Right side of the fairway.  They are not completely on the ground due to being hung up by other trees.  But only time will tell when one falls down.  Hopefully not on top of any one playing.   

I suggest someone take a chainsaw to them piece by piece and then some of us can use the trees to line that fairway... I can come pull trees around if someone else wants to come and cut.  Or I can call the KCP&R and see if they want to come out and just remove them all together.  We could use some mulch for downunder and around UP TOPs teepads I guess.
