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.

General Banter / Name that Ace

If you called it before you threw it I don't know if I'd call it a black ace. Did everyone know you intended to put it in that basket? If not and the fact that the disc went in that basket was a complete accident, it's a black ace for sure.

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 / Course Records
« on: May 09, 2005, 05:19:01 PM »
As you said, not knowing the configuration at the time makes a difference. Especially on a course like WyCo. But, that said, I know that Otto Spiers shot a 50 at WyCo League last year with the course set mostly short. This tied the 50 that LaRon Harris shot before the course became permanent. Also, if memory serves, Pete Cashen shot a 53 with the course set mostly long at league in 03.

I have league records for WyCo so those are official scores except for the length of the course at the time of the event. I will make more of an effort to monitor that now that I have the majority of the distances out there now.

Man digging into the plate of liver and onions, while his mother stares at him:

Mom:  Son, I don't know how you can eat liver.
Son:  Mother, it's good for you.  Plenty of iron.
Mom:  I don't care.  I don't know how you can eat it.  Don't you
remember that your father died from cancer of the liver.
Son:  Mom, this isn't Dad's liver.

Kudos the the KCK Parks mowing crew. WyCo is looking fantastic.

If you roll, bring your rollers. If you want to play some golf in one of the most beautiful parks in town come to WyCo.

Tee off is at 6:00 pm this evening. Call if you're coming but running late - 816-830-0974.

 Ace fund has still never been hit!!

Cliff Drive / Work day this month?

Four baskets?! These weren't Mach III baskets were they. We've had a rash of stolen baskets lately you know. Not making any accusations you understand, just asking.

In the past we have found stolen baskets by simply driving by houses with them in their yard and once at a garage sale.

I don't know the person you are talking about though.

General Banter / Club Membership
« on: May 05, 2005, 09:27:19 AM »
The main benefit of joining the KCFDC is to support disc golf in Kansas City!

The KCFDC is the driving force behind all disc golf courses in Kansas City. We have working relationships with the parks departments and do nearly all of the work to install and maintain the courses you play on. Including and especially Rosedale, the most played course in town.

Other benefits; occassional newsletter, discounts on club merchandise, discounts on entry fees at select tournaments, discount at most leagues and best of all two annual general membership events. The spring picnic this year will be in conjunction with KC Disc Golf Day and include food and beverages for members. In the fall we have a general meeting in conjunction with the club championships where elections are held for club officers. The fall meeting is either a picnic at the club championships or a buffet at a local restaurant.

The club Executive Committee consists of a president, VP of KS, VP of MO, treasurer, secretary, sgt at arms and a course coordinator for each course in Kansas City. The course coordinators are the individuals that schedule and spearhead workdays at their respective courses to get all of the maintenance and improvements that you see done. As well as the day-to-day things like posting on the marquee and dealing with stolen or broken equipment. The parks departments support us but do very little besides mowing to maintain and improve our courses. With eight permanent course in the ground in Kansas City we need all the support we can get. The work done by members of the club is purely volunteer. So, as you play the course and see the mulch, multiple pin placements, landscaping, etc.... you can thank the KCFDC for all of it.

Again, the most important benefit I can think of is to show your support for disc golf in Kansas City.

WyCo Park Course Coordinator
