Its an old lightning basket with their standard circular base. It has 3 supports running from the center to the outer ring. 2 of the supports are broken where it meets the outer ring. Looks like I had snapped the old welds actually. Probably just needs a couple of easy spot welds to reattach those to the outer ring.

Is it a DB5 with the removable base? If so, I have a base for it.

Yes it was Rick Gurski. How did he know to bring that??

I think he's an electrician. I suspect he usually has one in his car.

Improvements.
There was nothing to drink for anyone under 21.
The port o potties were disgusting.
People need to listen when an announcement is made.


These three are a good start. The club has water jugs, I wanted to fill my water bottle and there was none to be found. So a couple of water jugs or a cooler of bottled water at the very least.

In the past we've had a separate porta-potty in the grass. We can't count on the park supplied on in the parking lot one it seems.

To get people to listen to announcements you need to work on the direction and/or volume of the speakers. I was sitting between the CTP tee and the mini golf course and didn't hear a word coming from the shelter because the speakers were turned away from where I was. There should be sound directed in multiple directions since people are all over the place. 

I felt the CTP was cut off early personally. I know several people that had tickets they didn't get to use. They weren't aware it was being cut off because they didn't hear the announcements or whatever, but some did simply show up too late. Besides, since it took so long to get cards ready for the second round there a was still time to let more people throw. That being said, I realize you have to draw the line somewhere so if the second round card prep had gone quicker the timing was probably about right. So perhaps a more definitive cut off time needs to be posted for people to see rather than expecting them to hear the announcement. That time could be determined the day of or even during the CTP contest and posted so word could spread instead of relying solely on the PA

We got lucky with the weather this year and over-all things were great. Other than the above ideas the only thing I would have changed would have been the direction of the food line. It should have started outside the shelter and hit the chili first then ended with desserts and toppings. That was just clumsy because people that wanted cheese and onions or dessert had to bust through the line to get to that table.

Other than the water and bathrooms these are all minor things in my opinion. So for future events the two main things in my mind are making sure other beverages are available and the bathroom availability is acceptable.

Great job everyone. We got extremely lucky with the weather and got to enjoy each other's company on a beautiful day in the middle of an otherwise roller-coaster of a winter, which is now on a major downswing once again. What a difference a day makes around here....   :o

Yes, afternoon. Usually around 1-2 time frame. Since it's just nine holes we're usually all done by about 4-4:30.

Let me know if that link works, but its to the Parks Master Plan on opkansas.org


Page 21:

"    Disc Golf. There is a need to add a 9 or 18-hole disc golf course in a
sub-community or community park, working in conjunction with local
disc golf advocates to establish the best location. "


Sounds like they plan to listen to you guys if you show up to the meeting and make your voices heard. Advocate!

With all of the nice weather, I think people were out throwing.

I had actually considered driving in from Sedalia for this but like Doug said....  I ended up out at the course all afternoon playing in the wind.

Yes, this does sound like a great idea and I'm sorry it hasn't caught on yet. Hopefully you don't get too discouraged and give up. This idea definitely sounds like fun and has merit.

The two main courses in Orlando are Turkey Lake and Barnett Park. Both are fun courses but Turkey Lake would likely be less crowded. Both are also 36 holes. Barnett Park should be easier to get to via mass transit though depending on where you will be in the city.

Golden Retriever itself sells for $25. Sounds like a pretty good deal. But I don't need a bag. Good luck!

Tournaments / Re: Throw down the mountain- Brookesville Florida
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:39:34 AM »
Threw Brookesville in the early oughts with some friends down there and had a great time. I have a few pictures somewhere. It closed down shortly after that. I understand it's just 18 holes now. It was 27 when I was there. Lots of elevation for Florida. And some interesting use of terrain for sure. Sounds like a blast!

Is this course open full time now or just for special events? When I was there they charged $5 each and made us prove we had adequate footwear and enough water before letting us on the course.

Cabin fever!

If one is properly insured (w/ proof) and pulled over for 32+ day expired tags...is there a citation AND a tow?  Or, just a citation? 
IFF the latter, then a 'moving violation' receives a lighter penalty than a non-moving/parked violation.  An ironic discrepancy if so.

Indeed, it would be interesting to know if this is the case. Seems unfair if that's the way it works. This alone might validate this request to petition LEOs to rethink this practice of towing unattended cars for such violations.
