Rosedale / tag matches

We did the bag tag thing on 2003 and 2004 but took a year off because the format wasn't working. We plan to do it again in 2006.

Tournaments / 21st Frontier Open in Hays Kansas
« on: September 12, 2005, 09:10:01 AM »
Thanks for running a great event Brett and Brandon! A little less wind... yeah, that'd be nice.

Props to CD for taking 2nd in Masters. The advanced masters guys didn't fair as well but did have a great time on a truly great course. The design of the additional holes was excellent. Interesting use of trees and roads on D and E.

You guys from KC that didn't make it out need to consider it for next year. This is a really well run event on one of the best courses I have ever played. Eighty-seven people played this year from six different states. It was a great crowd. I'm already looking forward to next year!!

That's exactly what a round 9 basket is supposed to look like. I don't know if all of the stones are still there but the practice basket at Rosedale has incremental stones like that and it is great for practicing your putting. They go from about three or four feet out to about thirty.

There's four of us from the KCFDC coming. We hope to make it in time for doubles but that will remain to be seen. Leaving town about noon on the 9th

Kevin, CD, Doc and Ed.

Anyone else from KC heading out?

I'm telling you, you need to play Hays!!  This is a great time on a great course.

Where's the player's party this year? Last year was a blast. I remember that girl from Colorado getting hit in the head with a mini that was thrown from across the room. She and her boyfriend were good sports about it. Especially after I bought her a shot of whiskey as compensation.

What kind of animal is that supposed to be?! Looks like a racoon with antlers wearing flowered overalls. That's not going to be on the tournament discs is it?

WYCO / 8/19 League
« on: August 24, 2005, 05:08:36 PM »
Five showed up for league but only three played. Two were on their way to Omaha for A Call to Arms, myself and Doc. We got things going and hit the road.

It was a nice evening for golf and Tom Butler proved it with a nice 58.

Tom Butler   58
Dean Uhlman   63
Ned Smethers   69
AVG   63.33

It was good to see Ned Smethers. Thanks for paying us a visit old friend. You can wear your KCFDC t-shirt proudly back in Kentucky. (Wash it a couple times first though. The dye on them will come off on you if you don't give it a wash or two.)

WyCo design credit should probably just go to the KCFDC. But the primary designers were, Mike L. Wesley, Jack Carmack, and Kevin Montgomery. Lots of input from others was used though including the thoughts and ramblings of one Dr. Ace Mason. Many individual holes have individual credits.

I don't recall the exact date the baskets were planted but 2001 is correct.

Someone should pop in with more info on Prairie Center. I know Tom Butler was instrumental with this one. Tom, details?

Swope / Out of Bounds Question - Holes 13 & 14
« on: August 18, 2005, 09:18:19 AM »
We play the area on the hillside to the right of the road on #13 as inbounds when teeing from the long tee only. But this is an exception to the rule. We have always played the road and beyond is out-of-bounds for all events inlcudng league at all KC courses. Come to think of it, throwing across the road and still being inbounds is the exception here. But it's obvious because that's where the target is.    :D

WYCO / WyCo League 8/12
« on: August 16, 2005, 08:37:59 AM »
Rained Out!  Sort of.....

12 hardy souls showed up with the weather looking like it was definitely going to storm, and it did. We passed out the cards and headed to our holes just about the time it started raining. Three holes into the round three of the four cards headed for shelter J while one card continue to slog on through the downpour. To no avail however, they too had to stop after six holes. After about a 40 minute rain delay we took to the course as six teams of doubles and played the front nine (1 thru 8 and 18 ).

Mike D./Jeff H. =   -2 ($20)
Tom B./Doc N.  =   -1 ($10)
Chad/Rick R. =   E
Rick M/Michael =   E
Cecil/Dave H.  =   E
Kevin/Dean =   +4 (Huh?)

League this Friday. Be there.......     8)

Perhaps you should have added 150, 200 and 250 to your list. Even my girlfriend's son can throw 150 so I wouldn't go shorter than that.

This is okay to a point Dan. There should still be some newbie friendly courses around to get folks started. If I were just starting out in this sport I wouldn't want to play BV, Rosedale stretched out, etc.. all the time. There is always a need for a short, friendly, accessible course to get people interested and allow them to practice. We have the junior course at BV for that now but I feel that at least one of the major courses should be kept short in a rotation with the others that are set more difficult. If we want to expand the sport  we need to make sure it is accessible and not too intimidating for new players.

I agree that new players need to get used to the idea of the sport evolving but they are, after all, just getting started. I also agree that the sport needs to evolve to continue to challenge players at all skill levels. But calling these players whiners and dismissing their concerns is not conducive to making them feel welcome in our community of disc golfers.

If we could come up with a schedule of what course(s) will be set short and then publish it on the marquees and website that would go a long way towards making new players feel welcome. I will bring this up at the next EC meeting. Up to now I haven't seen much of a pattern to when courses are changed. It seems to be at the whim of the course coordinator.  and being a course coordinator myself that is how I approach it, right or wrong.
