General Banter / Montgomery Farm Ace - Jeff Campbell
« on: May 16, 2005, 11:09:26 am »
We set up a nine-hole course down on the farm this past weekend. It's a course layout I have used several times in the past. We played the course three times and on the third time through Jeff Campbell - aka Soup, hit hole #3. It was about 260-280 up hill and blind, behind a barn. the basket was one of the "octopus" baskets donated to the farm by the Army Major, Matt Ambrose, that had the course on Fort Leavenworth with them.

Anyway, that's the first ace hit at the farm. The throw was a big hyzer and looked great all the way. The disc dropped behind the barn and Jeff said "I think I heard bungee". The "chains" on these baskets are rubber rope. I don't think he hit the rope. I think the disc just dropped into the tire and stopped. The scene was awesone. The basket hangs from a big sycamore tree and has a beat up 1960 Ford 1-ton truck as an obstacle to the left of the basket. Several of us had to throw from the bed of the truck after our discs went under.

There is some great land at the farm for disc golf. The next time we have a disc golf weekend down there I hope more people can make it.

Way to go Soup!!  I hope you enjoyed the hamburger in lieu of the $5 spot.

No league this week. Mark Morales, Mike Penny and I showed up but decided to go play Ted's Dread in preparation for the Redbud instead. It was awfully windy, must have scared the regulars away.....

General Banter / Mike Needs Our Help - Course Being Pulled in Florida
« on: April 20, 2005, 02:48:01 pm »
For those that may not know Mike Wesley he is one of the primary designers and a driving force behind the WyCo disc golf course. He is also a long time member of the Kansas City Flying Disc Club. If you've ever seen his underhanded left-hand throw you'll remember him.

Here's the problem....  Mike just found out that they are closing the Rockledge course and pulling the baskets on May 1st. Someone is buying the land and building a business there.

Mike moved to Rockledge Florida two years ago and has been happily working, living and playing disc golf there ever since. This is a private disc golf course that is one of the oldest permanent courses in the country. It was established in 1978. I was there last week and played it and it is a fun, tight, technical course. He has played it almost daily since moving there.

The City of Rockledge has a park nearby that they suggested they may move the baskets to and put the course in as a public course but they are balking on it now. Mike needs advice on how to convince the city that a disc golf course is a good thing for the park. It is in a nice area so keeping out the riff-raff isn't valid, they don't have a problem with "cruising" so that isn't valid. I have suggested that it will increase foot traffic in a seldom used area of the park. Can anyone think of other arguments Mike can present to the city to convince them to move the course from the private land into the public park? Are there resources anyone knows of that he can use to help build his argument?

You are free to share you thoughts here or call him directly. His number is 321-302-0431. Thanks.

If you don't get registered Friday evening be there before 9:15 Saturday morning to register.

WYCO / Workday Saturday April 2nd

There will be a workday at WyCo this Saturday. Trimming of trees, cutting of some brush and brush removal as well as placing the new replacement basket for the #11 basket that was stolen. This will result in getting the practice basket back in place. We may get permission from the parks department to have a burn pile. If this is the case the workday could be very productive and we can begin to eliminate a great deal of the crap next to #17 fairway as well as other brush we could haul to the pile.

WYCO / Workday Saturday 3/5/05
« on: March 04, 2005, 09:16:10 am »
I'm planning to be at WyCo tomorrow morning at around 9:30am to do some work on the course. I want to move two pin placements so tools to do that would be in order. I can bring buckets, concrete and a shovel but I don't have an auger or good post hole digger. If anyone has such a tool and can bring it please do. I also have some tree trimming to do. I have my chainsaw but I understand the club's pole saw is in need of repair. We'll just make do with what's available in this case. Some weed eating around the next tee markers and in trouble spots might help too. Several little things need to be done too. There's a couple of trash cans in the pond that need to be taken back to the tee pads that they belong at etc...

If you can make it please do. Thanks.

Foursome for doubles on a rare beautiful Friday in February. Nate Marshall and Bryan Guthrie - 51 - Henry Po/Kevin Montgomery - 55. Ended up with a sixsome with friends of Henry showing up on hole 6 (young lady needs to compete). A great day off early from work.
