Cliff Drive / Re: City leaders have "plan" for Cliff Drive reservoir
« on: September 10, 2008, 10:28:58 PM »
I just played out there today and as far as dumping, I didn't see any.  However, it looks like someone has been living out on hole #3.  There were a few shirts laying out to dry and some other stuff laying on the ground.

As far as the future of the course, I would love to see more wooded holes such as the front nine.  I know some of the big arms would be sad to see the 5 million foot holes go by the way side, but don't we have enough of those courses around?  For me, I enjoy the technical aspect of the game more than just throwing it 8 miles off every tee.  Even holes like ten where you eventually wind up in the woods have more appeal to me then a wide open field.

BTW the front nine does look great.  The improvements from the begging of the summer are amazing.

Really?  You think there is ANY course in KC that compares to the variety of Cliff Drive?  Yes there are big holes, and little ones and wooded and wide open and by streets and down hills and up hills and around corners.  Really?  Ok.

Wow, what a great thread.  It has been forever since I have been on here, especially since moving back to the states and not living in KC any longer. 

Aha ... I did something good.  He said Wow!

General Banter / New ratings as of 9-8-08 .. We now have 2 1000+ players!

Congratulations to Dave Hemmeline and Arturo Villareal for their jump UP in the Ratings.  David is now our highest rated player at 1010 and Arturo has finally broken in to the big leagues with his I believe FIRST 1000 rating.  Good job this year guys, keep it up.. Oh ya and I went back down and everyone else went up.. Good job to you people for your personal accomplishments or failures like in my case.

Yeah, Nick was on the card behind me when it happened.  I was looking for my disc when I heard Luke yelling my name for help.  The bone had peirced the skin and was bleeding. One of the guys on my card saw this and almost fainted.  Later in that round I found Lindsey (nick's girlfriend) and told her the news of what happened.  The first words out of her mouth were "Which hand was it?".  A true disc golfer!

Later when I was talking to Nick about the accident he told me that after he broke it he thought "Man this isn't good" and asked Luke to "Pull his finger"... Which he DID!  That prolly didn't help.  I'm actually quite sure it hurt... Really Really Really bad!

Ok I did a little math and this is the ranking as far as I can figure right now.  In order

Course      Avg. Score     # of votes      %

Water Works     113              13            8.6
Cliff Drive           95              13            7.3
Rosedale UT       91               13             7
Swope               75               13          5.77
Blue Valley         63               11           5.73
tRosedale DU      67               12           5.58
tWyco               67               12           5.58
William Yates      21                4            5.25

Pleasant Hill        25                7            3.57
Shawnee Mission  24               7            3.43

This is figured by give 10 points to #1, 9 to #2 and so on.  Try your own way see what you come up with.

I like your math.. Or the fact your good at it.  We'll use this as our system.  That and now I don't have to come up with one :)..  The top 3 are no surprise to me.

If after you play the Ozanam's Tournament you wish you could just play some private Mini Disc Golf Tournament...  I know all of you are...  I may just happen to know where one might be happening right up the street from the course.

Over the weekend Kate and I built a garden for her in the backyard.  My payoff?  I get a mini course!  Check it out on-line here --> www.sillyrabbitsaloon.com/Circle_R.html <-

The tournament will be 5 dollars a person per round you play.  The round will go quick.  I will have some beverages on site for a small fee OR you can BYOB! 

You must RSVP by emailing me at dick.parker@hotmail.com or if you have my # call.  If there is no interest I will play by myself and drink my own beer.  Lemme know.   

Also My course has object pins so if you bring your basket I will have no problem switching them out for a little more difficulty.

It's funny that beating your kid behind close doors came in third behind Every Sunday after church and At the dinner table during evening Prayers.

I believe the baskets are gone from Ted's Dred so I don't know if it's a "COURSE" anymore.  But agreed on honorable mention!!  I amend that to my list.
