Depending on the weather, I may be able to join you about 3:30.  I work just a few miles from WW.

Hey Colby, if you were willing to stick around after your noon game and wanted to play a second round, I could meet you around 3:30 on Friday at WW (or any other course you wanted to meet at); let me know!

Tournaments / Re: Ice Bowl Media?

When I arrived at 8:00, there was a Kansas City Star photographer taking shots of the players as they were teeing off on # 1 up top.  He then moved down to the shelter and was taking pics of the chili contest and the players who were milling about and registering.  After that, I was out playing and did not see him again.

I had a blast out there today.  The weather was great...warm and sunny with no wind.  It was a little crowded. 

Ghostrider and Colby, thanks for a great first round.  Hope you did well the second round as well. 

Rick and the other organizers, I think you put on one heck of a tourney.  Kudos to making it work and keeping everything flowing pretty smooth.  Thanks for the great day.

I like a variety of putters to have on hand.  I will take one - about 170ish.  Are you going to be out at the Ice Bowl?

General Banter / Thursday afternoon round?

Anyone up for a round starting between 3 and 3:30 on Thursday?  I get off work at 3 and could be at WW, Cliff, or Rosey within about 20 minutes.  Bring your bag tags.

Found and Lost / Re: 13 Found Disc at Rosedale
« on: January 15, 2010, 10:55:29 AM »
I was thinking the same thing, Ash!  I have tried to return every disc that I have found...I only have one with a name on it that I could not find the owner of, and have begun to use it.  My thinking is that if I find a name on a disc, I get it back to that person.  If there is no name on it, I still post to find the owner, but usually end up keeping those.  Since living in KC, I have not had a single disc returned to me, but that does not mean that I dont try to find the owner when I find lost discs.

With that being said, I think that it is wrong to be buying other's lost discs, and will stop buying from Craig's List.

Swope / Saturday round - 01/16/10
« on: January 14, 2010, 09:50:36 PM »
Hey all, I have not had a chance to play for a couple of weeks and am itching to get out.  Anyone interested to meet at Swope on Saturday morning for a round?  It is supposed to be a nice day.  I was thinking about 9:00am, as I have to work in the afternoon.  I could meet earlier too, maybe get a couple of rounds in.  It would be a good time to swap some tags.

Found and Lost / Re: 13 Found Disc at Rosedale
« on: January 14, 2010, 09:36:52 PM »
I don't know if the guy that sells them at Rosie is the same guy. It's very clear that the guy selling them on craigslist finds them, cleans the name off and resells them. I personally wouldn't feel right buying from him.

Up until I read about the guy selling at Rosey, I did not have any qualms about buying from this guy on Craig's List.  But, I am rethinking it now.  I did get some sweet deals, but if it comes at the price of "stealing" from my fellow golfers, then I am done.  Thanks for that tid bit, Ash!

Question...this guy that is selling them down there at Rosey on Fri nights, is it the same guy that is selling some one Craig's List?  I have bought several discs in the past few months from Craig's List (from the same seller, who is always wanting to meet near downtown), and it is making me wonder if the discs I am buying are "stolen."  The names are always cleared off (though are still faintly visible - I cant read them well).  Any thoughts??

Smithville / Re: Smithville Disc Golf Complex
« on: January 13, 2010, 10:48:59 PM »
Point well take Anthony...and I agree.  I guess I was going on the assumption that those were what our neighbors to the north were actually planning on putting in.  I know that things are still in the planning stages and could change...just a bad assumption on my part.  I too would love to have 3 distinct courses that would challenge me each time I go, and not just enjoy the 1 or 2 harder courses and never play the easier one...though I am sure I would play it at least once.  ;D

I say the intermediate first...that way beginners have a course that is not so tough that it is going to drive them away from playing, but the course would be tough enough for the more experienced players to be challenged.  Also, you want it to be bring in players from all over the area, but if it is too easy. more advanced players will get bored with it and stop coming once the newness wears off, and head back south to more challenging courses.  As well, if it is too tough, rec and beginners wont want to drive the distance from south of the river to play.

I am always up for a challenge...so I would love a tough course, but start with the intermediate...I think it will draw your biggest crowds and thus it will put a taste in the mouth for everyone to keep coming back, especially knowing that a course more suited to thier level of play is coming soon.  I know that driving from Raytown (where I live) to Smithville is a long drive and with the economy as it is, I dont want to drive all that way just to play an easy course, but I dont want to get discouraged by having bad scores with the pro course, and not keep coming back when I could play closer courses.

This coming from a intermediate rec player.
