General Banter / 30th Anniversary
« on: July 15, 2009, 04:12:21 PM »
July 14th and 15th mark 30 YEARS since my first tournament... woohoo!!

I was a skinny (honest) little (some things never change) 16-year old at the time (1979). A local radio station had advertised the North American Series Frisbee Tournament event, so I showed up and played. There was no qualifying, and I figured I stood a chance as I had been playing catch and fetch with my family since I was eight or nine.

Each entrant received set of Wham-O Frisbees -- 119g, 141g, and 165g -- with a hotstamp of Jo Cahow doing a neat freestyle move. I remember later that summer some kid hanging at the swimming pool saw me doing a nail-delay and decided to show off. I flung the disc his direction and he promptly pulled out a pocket knife to spin the disc on  :'(  oops...

I guess many of the big names of the day, as well as Crazy John and Hal "Baby" Kurz were there, but I didn't get to meet them.

Disc Golf was played using regular Wham-O discs (nothing else existed) and ground baskets -- kinda tough. Oh, and my best distance was about 100 feet :(  The top distance competitors kept their discs in their cooler to keep them rigid for best flight. I attempted MTA (Maximum Time Aloft) but don't even remember if I caught any shots. My dad and step-mom came to watch the freestyle and we couldn't believe it  :o  My step-mom asked "How do the judges know if it's spinning? Maybe they're just balancing the Frisbee." I quickly learned a nail-delay and showed her how it's even harder to just balance the disc.

The original Swope Park Folf Course opened soon after, and the rest as they say, is history  ;D

Posted at... 12:34:56 7/8/9

Britain’s got talent…America’s got talent…and we’re absolutely convinced disc golfers do too!!

Here’s a chance to show us what you’ve got. Can you sing, dance, make us laugh, twirl a flaming baton, pull a rabbit out of a hat, or make Jack Lowe disappear?

Join us Tuesday, July 28th, 8:00 PM at the host hotel for a fun, lively evening of entertainment…where you just might learn a little bit more about that golfer you’ll see on the course the rest of the week!  We will be limiting the competition to 20 acts, and have some great prizes to give away. If you don’t have an act for the talent show, but enjoy making music…bring your instruments  and join us for the Jam Session portion of the show.

Look for an entry form soon. We look forward to seeing you there!

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Fourth of July FIREWORKS @ Legacy Park
« on: June 18, 2009, 03:15:04 PM »
The LEGACY BLAST will happen at the south side of Legacy Park near the baseball fields on Saturday, July 4th. Too bad it won't be on Friday for league...

Vendors, simulcast music to the fireworks, etc. Parking opens at 6:00 pm and closes at 9:00 pm. I'm figuring it may be a good chance to bring your own food, and shoot a round of golf before dark!

General Banter / Course Beautification
« on: March 25, 2009, 12:48:45 PM »
I feel bad about not making workdays, so I tend to pick up bottles, cans, and trash while I play.

I just ordered two sets of 160 flower bulbs ($9.99 per set from to plant around tee and pathway areas around the courses in anticipation of Worlds '009. I hope that's a good price - it sure seems like it  ;D
