General Banter / Re: Courses you never played before
« on: February 14, 2015, 10:55:12 am »
So many courses I have played in the area it's almost embarrassing.....  The list in order of my desire to check them out....

1. Perry Lake
2. The two courses I have played yet at Smithville
3. BRC in Liberty
4. Kearney
5. Foxhill
6. MWSU (St. Joe is a great place to visit I don't need much of a reason, just time)
7. McClouth
8. Baldwin City
9. Every course I am forgetting within a couple of hours of work or home....   8) 

It's glorious to have so many options these days. I distinctly remember having only three.... and one of those was a goofy thing at the water park.

Can't we just give Texas back to Mexico already?  What a shame.  These people need to be banned from tourneys all together.

Paging Billy Nelson... paging Dave Hemmeline.....  Hmm... someone from Texas just registered for the forum. Perhaps this will get even more interesting.   8)

The first day for USM league this season will be Tuesday March 10th at 5:30pm. That's the first Tuesday after Daylight Saving Time goes into affect.

I responded to your message. We can definitely discuss a CTP addition to league this season.

We're also working on enhancing the course to make it more permanent and hopefully expand it to a full eighteen baskets at some point.

There was a box on the sign-up sheet saying if you were playing the final 9 or not so the TD's for the satellite events should have somewhat of a headcount (except for those who checked "unsure").

Glad someone thought of it...  That will help for sure.

I think it would be helpful if all those running the satellite events could have a check-box or something to have players acknowledge whether they intend to show up for the final nine round or not. I suspect many players at the satellite rounds may plan on not making it to Rosedale. Making up cards and planning on them showing up will be a waste of time. If we can get a headcount in advance of those not planning to be there for the final nine it would save a lot of time and effort.

still a douche bag law, I say thank a squid - he may just give you discount and respond with kindness

I must admit, I sure don't want to go into most of the ponds I've put discs in. Pretty nasty water and mud. I do think having a rake or something like that at larger tournaments and retrieving discs as a service to the players would be a nice touch. Let smaller events and casual players take their chances but when you pay a sizable entry fee why not have someone do their best to retrieve discs if possible for the players that paid the fee and drove the distance to attend? Obviously this wouldn't be expected but it would be a nice touch. Possibly even hire the squids with the talent and experience to do the deed for a fee. Come to think of it, in Hays at the Frontier Open there are frequently kids there ready to retrieve discs for players. They almost always make a healthy sum of cash for their trouble.

Just saw this article about this very topic. This isn't Florida but I suspect the laws are similar.

Found and Lost / Re: What to do?
« on: December 05, 2014, 09:20:18 am »
We have asked people in the past to identify themselves somehow and to not intentionally remain anonymous on this forum but we have no way to actually police that other than kicking people off, which we won't do for that reason exclusively. Occasionally when things start getting heated and personal like this one of the admins will step in and start deleting posts or whatnot, but you guys seemed to be headed in a positive direction and were keeping it sort of light. And lets face it, I for one found it quite entertaining...   8)  Not quite Neckbeard level flaming but fun nevertheless.

With all that said, when someone asks a user to identify themselves I think at the very least a PM to the person asking with your real name is expected if you don't want to put it in a public post. But a public post or change to your account would be welcomed. While Utz now thinks he knows who The Nailer is many of us still have no idea. But hey, as long as everyone plays (sorta) nice.....

And to stay on topic, I keep them and either throw them if it's something I would use or give them to a newbie or someone I know who likes said disc, after checking around my immediate surroundings of course in case the owner is still nearby. So, let that be a lesson, always mark your discs if you want them back, whether you expect to get them or not it demonstrates ownership. And by PDGA rules a disc used in tournament play must have an identifying mark of some kind on it (801.02 F) or the thrower can be warned once then stroked for using it during the round.

Is it white?

When playing in cold weather one thing I do is keep a single hand warmer in my throwing hand pocket. Instead of wearing a glove on my throwing hand most of the time I just throw and put my hand back in my pocket until I throw again. When I won't be throwing for a bit like a long walk to the next hole I will slip my glove back on.

Winter Leagues / Re: Glow
« on: November 20, 2014, 10:56:38 am »
Sunset is actually at 4:33.  Then there is the time that the sun is below the horizon but still casting light above the horizon.  A phenomenon called twilight.   ;)

According to Weather.com and other places I've been looking sunset this Saturday the 22nd in Pleasant Hill, MO is straight up 5pm with civil twilight ending at 5:30pm. So your suggesting of teeing off at 6pm is spot on. Wish I could join. I miss disc golf. My shoulder should be all healed by Ice Bowl though.
