The Classic Roc comes in really lightweight plastic. Disc Golf World has lots of this sort of thing and they have retail hours during the day now. Give them a call. I recommend getting one of these and having her stick with one disc until she gets the hang of it. Any of these three will work for her whole game until she is ready to branch out. Have fun and good luck.
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.
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.

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.
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:
Open CD Steiner 54 Cecil Cameron 55 TJ Ring 69 AVG 59.33
Masters Tom Butler 64 Kevin Montgomery 67 Steve Slinker 71 AVG 66.07
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!
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.
