I think the civil heckler would avoid "mid-putt" comments, we wouldn't want to get thrown out before the fun starts!

So are spectators allowed to heckle? ;D
I think this is an excellent idea.  Of course I'm fond of the acting first and asking for forgiveness after the fact if busted scenario.  Mike, what about a 10am round at Rosedale, lunch anywhere nearby that has good beer on tap, followed by an enjoyable afternoon drinking more beer and heckling the side of your choice.  Anyone else up for this?  Who knows, it may be the best hecklers that decide the outcome of the match!

Jackwagons!

General Banter / Re: Removing Stamp

Here's a whole thread about stamp removal.  The summary would be that 100% acetone works best.  Be advised that some stamps are harder than others.  Innova wipes easily, Discraft is worse, and some of the MVP stamps are almost impossible.

Correct Tom, on 5 & 6 the sidewalk is in play, street is out.  Steve I think you only missed 12, the path may come into play if you put your upshot 75ft or so past the basket (first round only). 15 has a drop zone that ain't gonna make for an easy up and down and 17, if I recall correctly from last year, played as regular OB, shoot from where you were last in bounds.

Played it this morning and P&R had been busy mulching around all the tee pads, with that and all the great work done last week, PC is looking pretty good right now!

I thought the whole first set was smokin', 2nd set not so much but it had it's moments.  Fishmans comment about Akins during SuzieG was hilarious,  maybe should have been "Todd Akins is no biologist", but still hilarious ;D.  Thanks for clearing up my "Skin it Back" confusion BP, it was great  to see everybody out having Phun!

There are some similarities between us Mick, I'm 53 and have been playing disc golf for almost three years now but have played disc sports for over 30 years.  What we lack in distance we have to make up in accuracy and wisdom. 

The PDGA used to have some comments on the page that breaks down the divisions but seems to be gone now, one thing i loved was that they said us grandmasters pull all the trick shots out of the bag.  Try to find ways to incorporate those years of experience with a disc onto the golf course.

Discraft's Challenger reminded me a lot of a regular old frisbee and I've been doing my best to learn to be accurate with it out to about 200ft, throwing both backhand and forehand.  But I swear it's the 20-40ft range that causes me the most problems.  I would definitely look for a putter you are comfortable with and practice, practice, practice.

But most important, have fun!  We are a pretty laid back group and although competition drives us to get better, it's more important to have fun!  Play a round with Kmont (the poster above) and you'll see what I mean.  Looking forward to seeing you out on the course!

Money we like to call, "a hotel room instead of camping."

This keeps it all in perspective.  Congrats to you both on a great week in Charlotte and may there be many more hotels during your grand adventure.

Speaking of pictures... Where's Dan Howard's set from Rosie?

Still on my camera.  I wasn't real happy with them, too bright, too hot, too middle of the day...  I may still post 'em if I can find the time.

Found and Lost / White sidewinder, hole 18 Rosy top
« on: June 09, 2012, 05:40:55 PM »
About 75ft short of the pin, 2 ft into the trees on the right.  Threw my upshot and left my driver, name and # on the bottom. It was around 11 this AM.  Somebody please pick it up and put it in the can.

Brodie's amazing.

Epic Frisbee Trick Shots 2011 | Brodie Smith


Maurice Gleauzinier (a formidable Ultimate player in his day) sent me this one.  We were lucky enough to play in the Pro Ultimate Nationals in San Diego together a long time ago.  I was foolish to overlook disc golf as a walk in the park spoiler back then.

You guys sure get some great weather for golfing, can't tell you how sad it makes me not to be able to join you.  I'll get to spectate a little Sunday morning.  Good luck everyone, hope our local heroes get to bring home the bacon!

General Banter / Re: Ratings updated yesterday.....
« on: May 17, 2012, 11:14:07 AM »
That's funny Jack since (at least according to the Wide Open registration) you are from Chicago and your rating is 884.  On a side note, is there a way someone not current with the PDGA can find out what his rating is so he knows which division the PDGA would prefer him to play in?

Hole 15 really looked picturesque last night, especially from the tee.  Very nice work gentlemen!
