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.

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.

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 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.

Thanks Phil!

Those scores agree with what was sent to me I was able to come hangout but not throw for the last USM league night of the year. I had the ace fund on hand in case anyone hit it but alas.... no one did. So, in March, the ace fund will start out at $240 with a 50% payout once again.

I just discussed the future of USM ace fund league with Tony. While we certainly intend to have another great season next year we also want to encourage ending this season with a bang. In light of that the ace fund will be paying out at 100% tonight only if an ace is hit. So, that's a full $236 dollars plus tonight's money if someone hits one tonight. Otherwise the full amount goes into mothballs for the winter and will be paid out at 50% when the next season starts in March.

The scores for the 14th are below.

Tony Todd - 58
Peter Tady - 67
Adam Richter - 67

I'll be out there with the ace fund on hand this evening even though I won't be throwing.  5pm sharp tee off.

The USM crowd is going to have to muddle through without me. I'm out of commission until further notice due to a broken clavicle.

Assuming you all plan to throw I would recommend gathering at 5pm and getting started no later than 5:15. The rounds took about 1.5 hours last week with threesomes.

Ace fund is well over $200. We had a great crowd last week. Bom Tutler and Deano showed up and gave the new layout a good once over. I have scores somewhere but for now I'll just say that Tom shot a nice 51 to beat the field. I'll get the rest of the scores up eventually.

Looks like my season if over prematurely.  :'(

Ideal conditions last week for some disc golf. Two cards of three showed up for an evening round. We got teed off closer to 5:30 than ever and still finished without having to turn on any lights.

Show up earlier this week. Anyone showing up after 5:15 risks playing catch up or missing out completely.

Peter Tady - 55
Travis Daetwiler - 59
Kevin Montgomery - 60
Aaron Miller - ?
Tyler Forbes - ?
Phil Brite - ?

Ace fund is now well over $200. If no one hits one by the time daylight saving time ends we'll be carrying it over to next spring.
