Cliff Drive / Re: Pin Placements
« on: June 27, 2015, 03:42:33 pm »
all these are moved with exception of 6, its still middle.  Short left not currently trimmed enough for play.

We can move it around a touch. Here is what I was thinking....
1-original
2-Long
3-SHORT
4-Rocks
5-Short
6-Left
7-Middle
8-Trees
9-Long
10-Middle
11-Long
12-Short
13-Long
14-Short
15-Tree
16-Waterfountain
17-Peninsula
18-Tree

That should be a good mix of long/short and still leave some of the long for the daylight we have available for folks, but makes it more human as well. Heard some good things from those that did bother to play it as well as many a compliment from local on the "uber long" layout. Thanks all.

Anthony, thanks for sharing your thoughts.  Too many people think because they are volunteering, it puts them above reproach.  I read your post as entirely constructive and appreciate the feedback.  I have no doubt that we could have been better prepared for the vast array of disc golf knowledge present in the crowd.  Anyone wishing to critique my efforts that weekend, feel free.  There's nothing thin about me.  :-)

why not just play hole 1 to temp hole 2.  or better yet, temp hole 1. ;-)

Cliff is close.....I think #17(probably short) and #7 (will go long) are the ones that will move.

Currently it sits-
1-original (long left right)
2-Long
3-only
4-Short Right
5-Long
6-Original (Tunnel left right)
7-will be long I believe yes
8-Trees
9-only
10-middle (top hill left right)
11-Long (around reservoir)
12-Only
13-Long Middle
14-Short Middle
15-Under tree
16-Short Long
17-Uncertain Short
18-Original (Right by road) Hey, it only took Jack 18 holes to learn his right from left  ;D

I could of course be wrong, but it is close from what I was told by the Course Director.... ;D
Cliff Drive is currently set for City of Fountains.  Hole 17 short may be out of commission on thursday afternoon to reset the sleeve from the recent nearby construction.  (weather permitting)

I, unfortunately, have not had the chance to play the Emporia Muni course.  I will venture to say that PP is the best deuce or die course I've ever played, including ww medium, mcclure and fountain hills pre re-design ('05).  I heard that the Muni course is similar in skill requirement to ECC and Jones Gold/Mix.  Glad to see DD have the forethought to require a full skill-set other than length, to compete at their ultimate championship.   #peoplecomplainingaboutpeterpanparkinemporiadontknowhowmuchtheyarespoiled

I agree.  They know what they're doing is illegal.  Large signs are just a blank canvas to be tagged, attracting a whole different type of criminal.  They'd become and eye-sore quickly, and it's not cost effective to continually clean/replace them.  And don't count out those crazy college kids who think an "Illegal Dumping Prohibited, $10,000 Fine" sign would be a nice piece of artwork to hang above their throne.

The plastic one's came from Coca-Cola.  Someone in the club's brother in law worked in the shipping department.  I'm struggling to remember who at the moment.  Getting old sucks.  I got one truck and trailer load from him.  John Theiss got some for Young and I took some to Cliff Drive.  Old Pike got the rest because I didnt have room to store a bunch in my garage and none of the other courses would claim them.  I believe he said we could have as many as we need that the polar bears dont get.  The plastic ones can be brittle and break, but they're lighter and you don't need a tetanus shot to handle them.

i personally would rank majestic behind des moines, gbo, stl, and columbia.  played majestic last yr and 6+ hr rounds, 30 min waits, and poorly marked ob's did a number on me.  it was obvious that brp (and hyland) put great effort into making their courses awesome aesthetically but tended to lean towards one skill set each.  kaposia could have been one of the best courses i've ever played based on the design, but was so over grown and ugly, i was speechless when i was told it is pay-to-play.

ps:  had a blast in minneapolis though.  super clean town.  visited with old college friends.  stayed at mall of america.  family never missed the car.  they shopped and rode indoor roller coasters while i was off playing disc golf.  drove by the new target field.  stadium looked cool from the outside but twins were out of town.  awesome round with a deaf disc golfer last round.  besides winning our card by at least 6 strokes, he taught us the difference in sign language between a par 3 and a snowman  :o.  good to know  8).  too bad the tourney was mediocre at best.

« on: December 17, 2013, 06:42:15 pm »
i've had good luck with penetrating oil.  holes 3 and 12 at cliff that never move and a couple at blue valley were locked up pretty tight.  turn them upside down and fill the key hole with oil until it runs out the bolt holes.  leave for 24 hrs.  try lock the next day.  i've only ever had one that took more than three days worth of oil.  sometimes, after letting them sit for a couple of days in the oil, a light tap with a hammer will break the bind.  once free, put on spare lock and take that one home and soak for a few days in oil.

after going thru this process with several locks, i've found that preventative oiling and unlocking twice a year is enough to keep them in good working order.  $3 bottle of oil usually lasts me a year or two.

I believe you're referencing the low pin by the road - I've deuced that one before with no wind.  It's not nearly as tough as deucing the one at the top of the hill by the reservoir...

sorry, i didnt realize the orange pin is still in and/or is ever used.  every time i put the basket there, all i heard was cries.  nice 2, and yes, a much harder deuce, .  its the same distance horizontally, but much farther up, and the tee pad doesnt line up correctly for a big drive to that pin.  only person i've seen get to that one is big jerm.  pin high, 35 ft left.

18 makes it an ugly tweener finishing hole... lets play it to the long??

I would say it is a tweener hole in any position.  Nobody is going to deuce it (despite a fairway ace) and the long is definitely threeable with a good drive off the tee...

I recant my previous statement about nobody deucing it despite a fairway ace.  Evidently a jump putt for two IS possible  ;D

Warming up for 09 worlds, i saw coda deuce it with a straddle from the first tree, barsby put one about 12 ft away, and aj put one past the pin, even with the second tree.  still cant believe we had no wind at cliff drive that whole week.   ::)
