General Banter / New Player
« on: June 05, 2005, 12:20:50 PM »
Meet by #1 tee pad at the picnic tables there. As far as what disc(s) to bring that's up to you. I recommend a Roc and a putter for beginners but that is up to the individual. The best way to learn the game is to start with no more than three discs and stick with them until you know how to work them before branching out to other types of discs. New Players league tees off around 6:00 I think, but you should try to get there early. There is currently no cost to play.

WYCO / WyCo League 6/3
« on: June 03, 2005, 11:41:24 PM »
I'm sure most folks thought league would be rained out this evening but not so. Three hardy souls braved the threat of severe storms and got 18 holes in in very little rain. It was raining when we started but stopped after two to three hoels and the evening turned out beautiful. Third time that's happened this season. Starts out nasty ends up nice. Work day on Saturday 6/4.

General Banter / What kind of Bag of do you carry?
« on: June 02, 2005, 11:15:04 AM »
I carry a Lightning Pro-Style bag with Quadshocks. There are only two points to attach the straps on this bag but it works really well. There is room for 20-22 discs as well as a couple of zipper pockets for other things and a bottle holder. It's less expensive than other brands but it has held up pretty well for me. The Quadshocks actually cost more than the bag. The bag comes with an okay single strap but I stuff so much in mine it's easier with the dual straps.

WYCO / WyCo Workday 6/4 - 9:30am

There will be a workday at WyCo this Saturday morning. I will be in the parking lot by #1 by 9:30 to get things going. Weed eating, trimming of a few trees and more poison ivy spraying are a few of the things planned. Also, we hope to have tee information to afix to the current tee signs. If you have any other projects you would like to do at WyCo just let me know.

Once again the threat of rain kept the throngs away. However, once again the evening turned out beautiful and those that stayed away made a big mistake. The clouds and threat of rain gave way to blue skies and a gentle breeze. A great evening at WyCo for the six folks that showed up. Three open and three masters:

Thanks for the kind words Christian. I sprayed for poison ivy and did some weed eating this week as well as got rid of a downed tree and cut some poison ivy vines that were taking over a couple of trees.

The course is looking great and is freshly mowed. Tonight is the night to get out and throw a round at WyCo!

Tournaments / 2005 Kansas City Wide Open
« on: May 25, 2005, 01:08:51 PM »
Those are all really good questions. I wish I had answers. Anybody know what Dan has going out there? I played it in the fall but don't recall how many of the baskets were planted as compared to temp. I'm sure some of them if not all are planted. I'm just not sure if it's ready to be played, as in marked, etc...  Anyone know?

There is a nine hole junior course in the ground and marked. It has fly-pads. If you go out to check out the monster course you can always play the junior course while you're there.

Disc Golf World. They have retail store hours now so you could go in and register there. Not sure what the hours are. Call 816-471-DISC for details. Otherwise, if you catch Rick Rothstein at league somewhere in the evening he could sign you up there too.  Again, call DGW to talk to him.

Doubles for sure. Beyond that is questionable. They just have a lot to do to the tee pads.

See you at the KC Disc Golf Day. Come on out to WyCo when you can. The course is going to be getting better and better right up to the Wide Open.

General Banter / Personal Baskets
« on: May 17, 2005, 04:58:57 PM »
The Skillshot can't be left out. It's made out of some type of canvas and wouldn't last long left in the elements. It's a great temporary/portable practice basket but that's it. I actually have one in the trunk of my Camry constantly. Hence, my putting isn't any better. I suppose if I took it out and set it up to practice once in a while it might help. I guess I'm hoping its mere presence will help somehow.

Those Lightning baskets are pretty nice. Heavy duty for being as inexpensive as they are. There's one of those set up down at DGW too. At least there used to be.

I've got a Ching Skillshot that works great. It is very portable and catches really well for what it is. If you are looking for a practice basket that you can move around for temp courses they work pretty good. DGW keeps them in stock I think. They're $120 plus shipping.

If you are looking for soemthing to leave up all the time you might look at the M-14 Portable by DGA. They are $150.

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.
