General Banter / Pat "Stally"Stallbaumer
« on: June 21, 2016, 09:17:22 AM »
USM Ace Fund League will be happening this evening - 6/21/16.

We will be celebrating the life of Patrick 'Stally" Stallbaumer. Those who knew him know that he was relatively new to disc golf but he loved it and played with us at USM and elsewhere as often as possible. He even made the trip down to Emporia for a very windy GBO a few years back. He brought up the rear in his division but had a great time doing so.

Stally passed away Sunday after a brief fight with cancer. He passed on the same day the KCFDC lost one of its most beloved and best disc golfers, Todd Henry. I know most will be headed to Swope tonight to celebrate Todd's life and contribution to disc golf in KC but for those who can't make it in there and to those who knew Stally and would like to celebrate with us please feel free to join us. We will most certainly be sharing stories about both Stally and Todd as we get in a fun round of 18 at USM this evening.

It's a sad week for disc golf in KC....  But rather than be sad, let's lift up those who we lost in celebration of what they did for us in life.

USM lost one of our own the same day Todd passed. I would love to be at Swope to celebrate our friend but I will be running USM ace fund league tonight to celebrate and honor the memory of Patrick "Stally" Stallbaumer. He started playing with us at USM just a few years ago and fell in love with the game. He passed Sunday from cancer the same day we lost Todd. Rough week for disc golf in KC and friends of both Todd and Stally. Have fun tonight at Swope.

Yes, carts came about in eighties, Todd still holds course record at Waterworks, at -16, and was cursed with lefty skills. You can show your support for ISIS by using a cart though.


It was -15 down, not to really trump it....it was still awesome, I am trying to find the exact date he did it on, so far I found this thread...

Amazed Disc Golfer: "How do you shoot a 38 at Water Works?"

Todd Henry: "You miss 2 f-ing putts, that's how."

RIP Todd  :(

Thanks for the thoughtful and informative read Nate. Well done!

I for one choose to see this as a positive all the way around. I foresee the core of the course, clubhouse and closely surrounding holes, remaining. With that will be new holes or even an additional course elsewhere in the park. Only time will tell at this point.

And while we're quoting brilliant minds of the past this one comes to mind: "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river, and he's not the same man." Heraclitus

Agreed, I like that the guy keeps calling it Frolf but points out that the preferred term is Disc Golf...


"Frolf, like Disc Golf, is played among groups with a disc (originally a Frisbee disc).  That’s about where the similarities end.  Frolf, unlike Disc Golf, is a freeform amorphous ever changing game that can be played anywhere and everywhere in the world.

Frolf is not confined..."

This article here is pretty funny if I do say so myself...

Agreed, I like that the guy keeps calling it Frolf but points out that the preferred term is Disc Golf. He can call it what he wants since he freely admits how great that shot was and how it deserves the attention it's getting in the media. I've got a t-shirt I bought from Steady Ed himself that says "Frolf" on it in the fashion of a Ford logo. If Steady Ed can call it Frolf on occasion I'm willing to accept it. But yeah, the preferred term is Disc Golf.  8)

One worker driving silver dodge pickup said he knows Mike D.

I don't think we should hold that against him....

Are you suggesting a section of the forum set up specifically for photo sharing? That would be pretty easy to do. Either a separate section or if someone started a thread under Genral Banter it could be stickied to the top.

Been thinking maybe.......ugh.....Intermediate ....ugh but our ratings allow......and doing Sat/Sun, then skipping final 9 to play the Houck course....

Hmmm..... that's a thought for sure. If you decide to do this let me know and I will likely join you in Int and for the Houck course round on Sunday. I was planning on playing this until I saw the Friday rounds. hadn't thought about the C pool. Hell, I could play Rec for that matter....   ::)

What did you want to know about it?

http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/26332

I've been thinking about playing it. I understand they intend to use the new course, Harmony Bends (Strawn Park), this year. I drove by there just over a week ago though and they seem to have quite a bit of work yet to do. Only two pins were in so far I was told at the time. It looks to be a pretty nice course though. Might be a parking challenge however. I counted exactly 16 parking spaces and didn't see anywhere promising for additional parking, even temporary. I suspect they will have that covered somehow.

Here's more info from Disc Golf Scene: https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/32nd_Annual_Mid_America_Open_2016

Entry fees are pretty steep for a B tier if you ask me.

Check that....  I guess I won't be playing. They have changed it to a three day event with doubles on Thursday. I have work commitments that won't allow me to get away in time on Friday to get to the first round. They appear to be reaching for the big-time with it this year to introduce the new John Houck designed course. I'll have to play it some other time I guess. Bummer.....   :(
