I think the tags being the shape of the actual number would be cool. But probably not ideal.

Plenty of spots left? I'm on the fence about coming out.

Anybody got a Z-buzz I could borrow? or a Star Roc? I could go either way. ;D

Who made the rules. Throw whatever roc you want I'll throw whatever buzzz I want.  End of story..
I thought this was disc golf not rocket science...

Whoa, rules for an organized sporting event? Who would have thunk it?  ::)

Wait, so this isn't like Ace Race where you have to use the disc from the player pack, is it?

It would appear that way. Hence the restrictions on what mold it is.

So you only get to use one roc or buzz?

Yeah those hills at WW can be a Mother F'er. The first time I played it I basically felt the same way. I was really out of shape then though after 1.5 years of not playing Disc after I got out of the Navy. I was living in St. Joe with basically no course to play. But now that I have moved to North Kansas City I love the fact the Water Works is my home course.


I tried it once by myself and just the hills killed me. I am sure if I had a partner it would be better. I know bnorris has tried talking me into going again, maybe I will have to bring a gallon of water and tough it out.

I told Brandon, I walked the mountains of Afghanistan and that course kicked my arse HAHA

For sure on the water thing. On a hot summer day at Water Works I will take 2 liters in my disc bag, and then stop and refill when I hit the parking lot at hole 11. I've probably drank a nearly a gallon there on those 100 degree days.

Definitely more fun to play the course with others. This will slow down your pace a bit, and make it easier to find those errant shots.

My first disc was an XD, it wasn't a putter then, it was a disc that was WAY cooler than the frisbees that were being used, but that was in like 84', were you alive then? :P

I was alive in 84, just don't remember it well as I was 3.  ;D

Great history lesson Rick. It is hard for me to imagine that people were throwing those discs 500ft, that is much more impressive than the new world record with a blizzard plastic high speed driver.

What do you think people drove with back in the day?  That's right, putters.

Consider an era when your distance choices consisted of the Aero, XD and Aviar.

So that explains why some of the old timers are so good with them.  ;D

Were they considered putters back then? Or just discs? 

I probably wouldn't complain about the Ace Race using putters if Discraft made decent putters. Their mid ranges are far superior to their putters.

..... This disc seems like it might be much better for running aces than the putters they have given us 2 of the last 3 years.

I thought they flew sorta OK last year....  ;D

I know some people are good at driving with putters. I however do not like using putters to drive with. After all they are made for putting. :)

Water Works / Re: Trash Talkin'

A fun little read on http://www.ryanhealy.com/effect-of-signs-incentives-on-littering/


Loved the part about smokers and cigarette butts. Too many smokers think it is ok to throw cigarette butts on the ground(many discers are bad about this), but most of those same people would not throw other trash on the ground. I am now a former smoker, and when I smoked on the course my butts were snubbed out and then went in my disc bag (yes it stinks, but it is YOUR stink) or a trash can. In my car I had one of those cup style ashtrays that really limits the stink in your car. While not as noticeable as other trash items, cigarette butts are trash and need to be properly disposed of.

Sweet, thanks DD! I was a little worried we wouldn't have one here this year. This disc seems like it might be much better for running aces than the putters they have given us 2 of the last 3 years.

still stuck with 293 after the pussy adam abernathy lost to me at rosey league today. his excuse was he was just going for aces and tags werent in play which is a bunch of bs on his part but just shows what kinda man he is....

I've found the best bet is to say something about the tags early in the round. Otherwise you end up with some losers saying they didn't think tags were in play. Which is total BS because if you have tags and you are keeping score, they are in play.

I was just pinged about this by a coworker.  http://fiber.google.com/about/  My neighborhood isn't eligible. 

But if you are in one of the eligible neighborhoods, have a need for and can afford $120 a month for HDTV and super fast internet, it's a good idea to preregister.   The usual $300 installation fee will be waived if you do sign-up early.


$120 seems pretty reasonable to me. I pay $10 less than that for Time Warner and I hate both my slow internet and crap tv service. Unfortunately I am in an area where it is not available yet.  :-[

Thanks, after reading the internet tips.  I think until I get comfortable with playing, I'm not going to worry about a score. I'm doing OK to keep the disc in the fairway and out of the weeds.  I read more then once about control vs. distance. Watching others throw , I wanted more then I am capable of. First things first, Pleasent Hill has Rec Par and I need to stick to that.

I used to be a good Ball Golfer and just wanted to do welll with the disc. I understand the mechanics but don't have the technics down.
I think I found a sport I can truly get into. My wife who doesn't care for outdoor stuff , wants to play. I gave her a putter and she tried. That is a good thing for me.

As for now, just don't point and laugh. At lest I'm keeping it out of the weeds.

Cheers
Mick

Keeping score may help you to improve and know you are improving. Just don't worry about par. I find that too many players worry about par and get discouraged when they aren't getting 3's all the time. To me par is irrelevant, as a new player you should be worrying about beating your own scores, not worried about getting "par".

Yeah I understand that help is needed in collecting trash, thus why I volunteered. I thought that the club and/or parks dept provided trash bags. I have no problem volunteering work but I'm not buying trash bags in order to do said work.
