Found and Lost / Lost at Cliff - Hole 2/3 - White Roc

It rolled down just short of the short placement and was never seen again.

Name and number on it. Please, call if found. Beth has been throwing this disc since she started playing.

Thanks,

TomV

Found and Lost / Lost Blue Umbrellea at Pleasant Hill

I left it on top of the car, so it is probably gone, but I thought I would try.

It is blue with Missouri Master Naturalist printed in white.

It was Beth's so I am really interested in getting it back.

Thanks,

TomV

I am still trying to figure this all out. I am slowly creeping up to a year playing, if you count winter time where I did not throw a disc. I usually look where I want to throw it, say a silent prayer and throw. Does it work? Heck no! I try to watch the vets throwing and I tend to ask a lot of questions, which can probably get annoying. I need to find this Church of the Flying Disc God!

Something I think helps develop your throwing is to play catch. Another thing that will improve your game fast is to take all your discs and go throw them out in an open filed such as a soccer field or baseball field. Playing rounds doesn;t give you enough reps to learn how to make the discs go where you want them to.

This is GREAT advise. This is the way I learned what my discs do and what I need to do to make them do it.  I used the two practice football fields at Liberty HS. They are side by side and lined so I could better see the flight of the disc and throw with all direction of wind. I was there one Sat for my daughter's volleyball tournament and had a 45min break between each match.

I must have thrown my bag (all discs that is :)) 20-25 times. All directions of wind, hyzer,anhyzer, backhand, forehand, tomhawk, thumber.  My arm was sore, but I learned a lot.

Another thing is understanding disc stability and how it is effected by various factors like arm speed, wind, spin, etc.

I just changed putters again to the MERCY (as well as a bunch of other plastic) and then played the Monkey Island... I shot an 868 rated round... 8... 6.... 8. Came in DFL. I have technique and confidence, but not so much with the new plastic. Yet.

I have the GBO this weekend and I have to figure out what I am going to do; stick with familiar plastic or go with the new stuff.

Sounds like Tiger with Nike :)

Believe you mean Rory

Yeah, he is their latest victim.

The video I learned the most from was of me.  I really thought I was throwing the disc a certain way and found out I was not even close to what I thought I was doing.  IMHO this was the best way to "correct" your form.  If you can see it, you might be able to change it.

The other vids helped me try to pick a "technique", but again, we are all pretty different. Just because some one is successful with a given method, does not mean that is the best way for everyone else.

I would like to play a couple rounds on Thursday. Is anyone else heading down in the morning? I need a ride and will gladly split gas with anyone heading down.

Give me a call or PM ( 816-309-3369).

Thanks,

Well said Kmont!!

It IS a matter of respect.

Utz, me too on the liability thing. Can no one take responsibility for there own actions(well intended or not)?

Why issue a ticket, how about just stop the citizen from jumping the fence?

Then there has to be a process at city hall where people are employed to take money, Then if you dont pay the ticket you may get a warrant, depending on how serious the "crime" is, blah blah blah. All in all its a big waste of time, in a made up world of importance by the powers who be.

I am really late to this DISCussion, but I really wanted to weigh in hear. 

Why issue a ticket? Because it brings awareness to the problem. Everyone here is talking about it. Maybe it will deter some one else from climbing the fence.  The main reason I support them doing trying to stop people is the liability issue.  We some less than coordinated person decides to take header on to the concrete from that 8' fence and hurts them selves, guess who is going to have to pay the medical bills (The City of Lee's Summit). The jack-leg that fell won't even have to WANT to sue them, his/her insurance company will do it "on their behalf".

Or maybe we should just hire an extra couple of cops to stand at the fence 24-hours a day so they can " just stop the citizen from jumping the fence?"

The other reason to stop them is to make sure when I loose a disc and try to go through the proper channels to get it back it, will still be there.  But seeing all those "free", finders keepers, discs laying around will just be too much for those criminal masterminds to resist.

CD, thanks for being part of the solution.  :)

Okay, I'm not too familiar with tourney dates or whatnot, so if anyone can pinpoint an upcoming weekend that is relatively open, we can start there.


Here are all the dates: http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=8679.0
