I would love to be there, but of course, family (little league baseball) comes first. Take good notes...

I want to be a big part (go ahead, say it Jack...) of the Communications Committee. Let's gather some samples of previous programs, etc, even from other sports, for some ideas.

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!

Beginners / Re: New Player Disc Weight
« on: May 14, 2008, 12:27:14 pm »
Throw whichever weight you can control the best. You will just have to throw some various weights (which it sounds like you have already done) to figure out what works for you.

Newer players who cannot generate the amount of speed that a top-level player can often find that the lighter discs work better for them, but that is not always true. Dr. Rick Voakes throws 150 class discs, and he is a world champion.

I am a new disc golfer (3 months) and i was lookin for some feedback on what weight i should throw.  i bought some discs but i think i bought too heavy.  i started throwing 2 #2 upshots that are 150 and 161 and i feel like i throw more consistent with the lighter discs.  i have asked a few people about weight and got mixed opinions

Try mid-160s to 170g for your drivers and mid-range. You may like mid-range and putters a little heavier for a bit more control and less chance of running too far past the target.

Yes Charlie is an inspiration again. Please read the article about Charlie's inspiration to his nephew. He never ceases to amaze us all.

I liked Blackhawk. It was really hard but very cool. They combined it with several of the Redhawk holes and lengthened them. Also cool. I have only heard good things about the other two.

The Blade played them in Worlds a few years ago and had lots of praise for McClure and Dovillio, and so I am positive they will be cool.

Any "date rape" at either, CD?  (ha ha. Disclaimer: I am not saying CD and date rape have anything in common. I misunderstood him once, and date rape was not really involved)

I actually don't think many people are even signed up for the tourney. I wonder who from KC will be going.

Sounds like a great layout! ... and drink what you like, Gato Rade or otherwise...

I have never entered a tourney before, but am planning on coming out on Sunday.  Couple of questions:

1. What things must I have besides discs and money...do I have to have the little marker disc things?
2. Can spectators walk with the groups/are caddies allowed?

Thanks.

The mini is optional. But if you don't use a mini you cannot touch the disc that is your lie until after your next throw, essentially using the previously thrown disc as your marker. I recommend having a marker disc with you as it can help on difficult lies but you won't always need it.

Yes, as long as the caddy/spectator is courteous and mindful of the other players. If the caddy/spectator is disruptive they can be asked to leave. I personally have had to ask spectators to leave in the past for heckling and being a nuisance. What was Bill's last name anyway? RIP Bill.

Kevin, I believe you are speaking of Bill Van Ness. He was a little disruptive, of which I never understood.... oh yes, it was the alcohol. Lesson learned.

This one is blue. Anyway, if anyone sees Mark, tell him to call me.

More likely Mark is "blue" because his bag only weighs 42.5 pounds at this point.  :P

Has anyone played this before and have insight to some of the courses? I played in the Spring Fling earlier this year, and we played Mohawk Judge Course (the Blackhawk-18holes and 9 holes of the Redhawk courses combined), but I've heard McClure and Dovillio are neat courses too.

Thanks for any info!  :D

Last fall I competed in the Oklahoma Open, seeing three of these courses for the first time.

Blackhawk (through the woods and around the lake) will test your mettle (metal?) in more ways than one if you get off the fairway. Get a practice round on this one for sure! Hardly any hills to deal with. Pick your route through the trees without a hint of doubt, and you'll be okay. Layup when necessary to get in position for the next shot. Redhawk, is mostly open with a couple longer shots, but about 2/3 of the holes can be a birdie "2". Again, place your drive on the longer holes to setup for the layup.

I've played McClure many times - a little water (you'll get your plastic back from these), some OB, and lotsa birdie ops, layup and play the terrain to avoid skips and rolls when you must. Dovillio should be the easiest, although the longer holes can get you, and birdie 2s can be elusive. Go. Play Smart. Enjoy.

Tournaments / Re: Mighty MO DATE CHANGE-Saturday May 10
« on: May 07, 2008, 03:42:34 pm »
I have never played in an event before, but would be interested in the Mighty Mo.  How long does a tournament take to play (I have a prior commitment at 2:00pm and am wondering if playing would even be feasible)?  Also, what is the difference between the Rec and Novice divisions in tournaments?

Two rounds of 18 with lunch in between pretty much takes all day. I'll defer the divisional question.

I'd be inclined to join in on Sat May 31st if you were to play at Blue Valley instead of pushing it to after the WO. That might actually draw out a few more players wanting to take a look at the course prior to the WO.

Some Iowans that will be in town that weekend may be inclined to play as well.

Don't these folks prefer to be called "Iowegians"?? Many of them do have Norwegian ancestry...

The Cantankerous One is no longer giving us the finger.  That much is good.

What trees came down at WW?  Was one of them the one that was keeping everyone from playing safe on hole 12 when in the left pin position?

Umm, I believe "safe" does include going to the right of said tree. Lay up on the flat portion of the hill on your drive instead of going for a birdie "2". Lay up on the second shot, get your par "3" and go to the next hole.  :-X

Beginners / Re: Put one on top the basket.
« on: May 04, 2008, 10:51:03 am »
Put one on top the basket yesterday does count two or one?

PDGA Rule 803.13 (B). Disc Entrapment Devices: In order to hole out, the thrower must release the disc and it must come to rest supported by the chains or within one of the entrapment sections. This includes a disc wedged into or hanging from the lower entrapment section but excludes a disc resting on top of, or hanging outside of, the upper entrapment section. The disc must also remain within the chains or entrapment sections until removed.

In plain English: The disc must come to rest supported by or in the basket, or in the chainset. The top of the chain support (or hanging from the chain hangers) does not count. Sorry... add one more.

Me and Damien are not meterologists by any means, but i'm pretty sure we seen a tornado that was trying to make it to the ground, i look at him and say "we should probally get outta here" his reply "we should be able to get holes 15 & 16 in before it reaches here" lmao

...everyone that plays this game must be meteorologists as well as aerospace engineers! "The wind is my friend... "You've got to know when to roll 'em...
