Tournaments / CLUB Championships-picnic

Champion pool - LaRon Harris is once again this year's club champion!
A Pool - Brian Gammon
B Pool - Jeff Hoglund
C Pool - Daniel Truax
D Pool - Angela Plitsch


About 40 people came out off and on over the weekend to play on one of the four courses used during the club champoinships. I even got to play most of a round with Max Hilgers on Sunday afternoon. However, only 17 people played all four rounds. That doesn't mean the disc golf among those in these pools was any less competitive though. For instance, in C pool in which I played, there were only three of us but the final round was quite competitive. Daniel Truax went in with a five stroke lead over Steve Harris and Steve came within one stroke of catching him. As for the D pool, Angela was the only competitor left after Saturday's two rounds but it doesn't mean she didn't win. She had enough of a lead over the others in her pool that she was well on her way to victory had the others been there Sunday or not (I think she scared them off). And a couple of them did return for the final round Sunday afternoon and she did indeed prevail in that round as well.


I can't help but think we would have had a better turnout if we hadn't gone up against the OctoberFriz weekend and had stuck with a three rounds and then the picnic format as we have in recent years. We tried four rounds and a separate picnic this year and may not do it again next. Let's just hope the turnout for this weekend's picnic and elections is better than the turnout for the club championships.


As poorly as I played all weekend I finally started getting my game together during the last round. I don't know about others but the guys on my card can attest to the fact that I Buzzzzed the basket on #9 at Rosie on the very last hole of the event. Man, that would have sure made up for the lousy rounds the rest of the weekend. Oh well... there's always next year.

And thanks for asking Joe!!

Last summer Ed met a woman while on vacation
and fell head over heels in love with her.

On the last night of his vacation, the two of them
went to dinner and had a serious talk about how
they would continue the relationship.

Ed began by saying to his new lady friend that
she meant so much to him, "It's only fair to warn
you that I'm a complete and utter golf nut. I eat,
sleep and breath if that's a problem,
you'd better say so right now."

"Well, since we're being honest with each other,
here goes," she replied. "I'm a hooker."

"I see," replied Ed, and was quiet for a moment.

Then he added, "You know, it's probably because
you're not keeping your wrists straight when you
tee off."

If you go to the PDGA website down aways on the front page is an article about promoting disc golf to parks departments. This is the link to the PDF file which is an article from Parks and Recreation magazine:

It's a fairly big file but it might be just what you are looking for.

A filthy rich man in Florida decided that he wanted
to throw a party and invited all of his buddies and
neighbors. He also invited Bubba, the only redneck
in the neighborhood.

He held the party around the pool in the backyard
of his mansion. Everyone was having a good time
drinking, dancing, eating shrimp, oysters and BBQ
and flirting with the women.

At the height of the party, the host said, "I have a 10
ft man-eating gator in my pool and I'll give a million
dollars to anyone who is brave enough to jump in."

The words were barely out of his mouth when there
was a loud splash and everyone turned around and
saw Bubba in the pool!

Bubba was fighting the gator and kicking its hide!
Bubba was jabbing the gator in the eyes with his
thumbs, throwing punches, head butts and choke
holds, biting the gator on the tail and flipping the
gator through the air like some kind of Judo Instructor.

The water was churning and splashing everywhere.
Both Bubba and the gator were screaming and raising
  hell. Finally Bubba strangled the gator and let it float
to the top like a K-mart goldfish. Bubba then slowly
climbed out of the pool. Everybody was just staring
at him in disbelief.

Finally the host says, "Well, Bubba, I reckon I owe you
a million dollars."

"No, that's okay. I don't want it," said Bubba.

The rich man said, "Man, I have to give you something.
You won the bet. How about half a million bucks then?"

"No thanks. I don't want it," answered Bubba.

The host said, "Come on, I insist on giving you something.
That was amazing. How about a new Porsche and a
  Rolex and some stock options?"

Again Bubba said no.

Confused, the rich man asked, "Well, Bubba, then
what do you want?"

Bubba said, "I want the name of the SOB who
pushed me in the pool."

WYCO / WyCo League 10/7

Kind of a strange night out at WyCo. We were all ready starting to to tee off with a fivesome playing open when Cecil and Rick showed up. I quickly set them up as a threesome with Dave Hemmeline and they took off from #3. We left the initial drive out there and continued as a foursome from #1 playing advanced. Three of us could have played Masters but Brad would have been the odd man out. Since he normally plays open I went ahead and called us a card of ams because Brad showed up with only two drivers and had to borrow a putter. I think the scores show that the decision to do this was fair. I hope others feel the same. It was highly irregular though. This Friday we will be teeing off at 5:00pm to try and beat the sundown. But just in case you might want to bring a glowstick or two and some tape to keep from playing the last hole or two in the dark.

The red ones work best for glow golf by far. I've tried the green and yellow but the red is much easier to see from further away. I suggest you just stick with red. The other colors are fun but harder to see.

Five out for a quick round. A group of five teeing off at 5:30 when daylight is gone at 7:25!!  The secret weapon? Mike D's badass golf cart.

Teeing off no later than 5:10 this week. No golf cart...  it's headed to the Friz. Come on out for a tune up round before this weekend's club championships.

Beginners / I just wanna play!

Disc golf is, for the most part, free to play since most courses are in public parks. There are some public courses in other cities that charge to play (I've actually only seen one, in San Diego) but none of the KC area courses are pay to play.

Just show up and play! We do have leagues sponsored by the Kansas City Flying Disc Club that are $5 to play and there are tournaments all over the country with varying entry fees. Once you play for a while and feel like you may want to compete just show up and join us. The league schedules are listed here:

There's a free-to-play Monday night New Player's League too. This is a good one for someone who has never played organized disc golf before. It will give a good introduction to rules and course ettiquette.

But that's the very long answer to your question. Just go play!! I hope your son enjoys it. There also is a new nine-hole junior course at Blue Valley Park. That would be a perfect course to take a bunch of Cub Scouts to. I suspect you could even get some seasoned players from the club to help you with the outing. All you have to do is ask. We do that sort of thing all the time.   :)

Sorry for the short notice. As for the Friz, that's why we are having the picnic and elections the following week. We know lots of folks will be going there. Hard to squeeze it all in. Come out then for the picnic though. Yes, bring your wife, kids, girlfriend, boyfriend! Just bring a side dish to make sure everyone is covered for eats. Should be a good time, doubles in the afternoon or something.

Sorry for the lapse in posting scores. Life's basic interruptions. For instance, I'm a new grandfather for the third time. Marshall Kevin Bergen was born on Tuesday 9/20 -  :D

8/26 League:

Dave Hemmeline makes his presence known by hitting the first birdie I've seen on #4 in the woods.

Thanks to Rick Molenkamp for running league while I was off playing in Hays. The grass was knee high but a hardy group played with trimmed tee pads and a path someone mowed from pad to basket.

9/16 League:

A good group but guys from the open division left and I didn't get their card. I don't know scores and don't remember who all was there. If someone that was there sees this and can get the info to me I would really appreciate it.

9/23 League:

Getting started right at 5:30 now. We finished in plenty of time with three cards of three playing. The course is now set almost completely short and will be for the rest of the season. Dave Hemmeline and Dan Coffman both continued their domination of their respective divisions by consistently playing well. Not to be out done, Mike Davis hit a birdie on #4 in the woods this week as well.

We will be teeing off at prompty 5:30 this Friday, 9/30. If you are planning to be there and are running late please call - 816-830-0974.

The ace fund is now over $700. There's never been a league ace at WyCo... lots of metal but nothing has stayed in the basket. Dave Hemmeline nailed #5 last week, but alas, it was not meant to be.

Water Works league is just like other leagues in town. $5 for members withthe ace fund. Tee off is probably around 5:30 right now because of the increasingly early sunset.

If you are talking abotu the glow league it tees off around 6:00pm after daylight savings time ends and is the same price. They have separate ace fund and play doubles most of the time I think.

We will now be teeing off as close to 5:30 as possible starting tonight.
