General Banter / A Word A Day (Wordsmith.org)

conduce
PRONUNCIATION:
(kuhn-DOOS, -DYOOS) 
MEANING:
verb intr.: To lead to or contribute to a particular result.
ETYMOLOGY:
From Latin conducere (to lead, bring together), from com- (together) + ducere (to lead). Ultimately from the Indo-European root deuk- (to lead) that led to other words such as duke, conduct, educate, duct, wanton, and tug.

I think people have been playing disc golf FAR longer than we realize. I mean, it's entrenched in our language...

General Banter / Internet Anagram Server

Lotsa word fun here... http://www.wordsmith.org/anagram/index.html

Do you know any anagrams for "FRISBEE"? I think these fit just right:
  • Beef Sir (Wendy's or Burger King??)
  • Beer Ifs (Regular or Light??)
  • Beers If (...and only if)

They also post a Thought of the Moment:
  • To see things in the seed, that is genius. -Lao-tzu (must be 4:20)

THREE CHEERS! Has anyone in our group spoken with them, or reviewed the land? This is adjacent to Blue Springs South H.S.

Looks like we'll need a new Home Thread on the forum :)

I understand Hole #2 at Prairie Center (on the island) was hit on New Year's Day? Was it Marc Headstrom?

General Banter / Frisbee in the National Toy Hall of Fame
« on: November 21, 2008, 11:16:20 AM »

Pretty good company as there are currently only 41 toys in the Hall of Fame.

I wish there were links to the main organizations that have sprung up now that we've grown from a TOY to a multitude of SPORTS: PDGA, UPA, WFDF... no way to edit listings.

Tournaments / Mid-America Open July 12-13, 2008
« on: June 30, 2008, 04:12:11 PM »
Anybody going? The family and I usually make a weekend of it...

Doubles is scheduled for 1:00 PM Friday, July 11th at Albert Oakland Park. Chappy, I see you are the only one registered on PDGA.com - if we team up I think we could win it all (kicking our own a$$es).

General Banter / Camp WIN 2008
« on: June 10, 2008, 04:07:58 PM »
It's time again to volunteer an afternoon teaching the sport we love! I'm looking for three or four volunteers to assist. I may be able to get a large supply of putters from last year... but please bring one portable basket each.

Camp WIN is sponsored by the Women's Intersport Network of the KC Sports Commission, and is held each summer to introduce girls aged 8-14 to 15 different sports throughout the week. This year's event is again held at Rockhurst University, at 55th & Rockhill Rd. Disc Golf is scheduled for Wednesday, June 25th, 2:10-3:40 pm (on the soccer fields).

We can provide all the printed materials we want. Rick or Jack: do we have some sort of flier listing our courses? Didn't someone create a Google Map of our courses?

Last year Becky and Jon Stebbins, and Terry Adams came out. Mark "Surfer Dude" Arnold works at Rockhurst, so he better be there!

Compensation includes the satisfaction of spreading the popularity of the sport we love, and a t-shirt (as if you need another).

Give me a call if you would like to help out. Thanks!

Club Archives / Radio Spots
« on: May 15, 2008, 08:56:24 AM »
I tuned in to 99.7 The Boulevard just in time to hear the DJ talking about having played the Rosedale DG league last night, thanking Tavish, Dennis, and Rick for a great time, and also inviting the public to the KC Disc Golf Day (this Saturday at Rosey) leading up to support the PDGA World's in '009.

He said that anyone interested in checking out the sport would find that it is relatively inexpensive, great fun, and they will find our group very welcoming!

Good job to all!
