General Banter / St. Louis Courses

I'm going to be in St. Louis next week.  What courses should I be sure to play?

Take some flippy plastic!! ;)

When I last went to Colorado, I brought some discs that would flip and roll in Kansas City, but I could still barely turn them over in the mountains.  The only disc I could really flip was an old beat up 145g R-Pro Boss. 

That experience and this post got me thinking, are there any resources out there that describe in specific terms how altitude affects disc flight?  Ideally, I'd love to see something that says if you throw a Nuke (or some other disc) at X elevation, it would be similar to throwing Y at Z elevation.  Anyone familiar with such a resource?

Anyone know when the pin settings will be changed to their Corporate Challenge positions?

I would consider Hole 4 to be a par 4 as well.  While a 2 is possible, it's pretty rare and requires a great tee shot and putt.  If get a 2, that's an eagle in my book.  Does anyone know if someone got it in 2 this weekend?  If not, it makes sense it should be a par 4, albeit an easier one. 

I thought the OBs on 10 and 13 were great and apparently created a lot of scoring differential, which is a good thing.  I actually thought hole 10 didn't play too hard for a right-hander with the strong tail-wind pushing everything back in bounds.  I had drop in 4s on 10 both rounds and I don't have a big arm by any means.

Hole thirteen is a great example of how OB can get into people's heads.  If you can throw at least 350', a 4 isn't too difficult if you just execute your shots. Just throw down the middle of the fairway, lay up past the tree near the short pin, then throw a 150'-175' shot onto the green for a 4, or a 5 at worst if you miss your putt.  Obviously the big headwind made things more difficult, but the OB wasn't really that tight, unless you were trying to get onto the narrow portion of the fairway on your drive and get onto the green in two.  I know the green was actually quite a bit larger this year as well, making upshots easier than previous years. 

Overall, I really enjoyed the course and wanted to thank DD, Tracy, and everyone else who helped set up the OB an/or put this event on.

I saw him at Waterworks before the Wide Open a few years ago throwing turbo putts.  At one point, he made 8 in a row from 40+ feet.   :o

First East Side Qualifier

Top 5 scores in Kan-U-Wyco event Saturday, March 8th.

I'm assuming this means top 5 scores regardless of division?

With the recent inclement weather, is there still going to be OB marked for the Kan-U-Wyco?

Is it a requirement for the East Side captain to actually know which courses are being played?

I read today in DiscGolfer magazine that we will be using Blue Valley, Swope Gold, and WyCo for this year.


I can only hope this means one thing.....tee times.
