General Banter / Re: Ratings updated yesterday.....

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!

Tom you do realize that this is a worldwide phaseout of a gas that has been proven to deplete the ozone, not because of it's contribution to warming.  I know John's wording makes it sound like the EPA is responsible but the US and 196 other countries agreed to the Montreal Accord in 2004 to eliminate ozone depleting chemicals, R22 is one of 'em.  We love our ozone, without it our plastic would quickly become brittle and break when it hit one of the concrete structures that replaced the trees that used to be obstacles on our golf course.

Bob Dobbs ZNuke, reward for it's return.  Somewhere right of the fairway.  I'm thinking in the big Pine with the ivy, maybe last night's big rain washed it out.  Name and # inside the rim.

As Loomis pointed out,  Ekolk - The king of understable plastic...   He threw a star sidewinder and it looked in all the way.

Nice ace Eric!

Not very many, got there later than I wanted so I couldn't stay long.  I'm disappointed, WYCO is a beautiful course with all the old trees.  A great place to take DG pics.

Found and Lost / Found a green disc on #18 at Wyco
« on: March 15, 2012, 07:54:57 PM »
Around 11:30am, no name or #.  Tell me what disc and I'll return it.  If you didn't lose a green disc at Wyco yesterday or early this morning (it was in the middle of the fairway) please, no guessing.

Found and Lost / Still waitin'

On my orange Pro-D Challenger (1st Ace disc) and a funky dyed blue Z Buzzz to show up at DGW.  You called me and said you would.  Waiting patiently, but still waiting.

ps. I'll be at the Ice Bowl Sat afternoon and all day Sunday if that makes it easier, you will be rewarded!

I found a pink Helios 50' south of hole 10's basket late this afternoon, had your name on it but no number.  Might be the same disc, describe the scuff marks and it's yours ;).

Thanks Bert for tending Rosey's can!  And Rick for making it easy to retrieve our lost discs.

Hey Charlie, glad to hear you are safe and sound.  Been a little worried since I saw the news Sat night.

Lemme tell ya a little something about time brother.  Time was invented, orchestrated, and conceived by the man for one thing and one thing only, and that's money!  Have you heard the expression time is money?  What about the other one, money is the root of all evil?  To me, that means time is evil.

The past is gone.  The future doesn't exist.

And the Time is Now!

if you can finish one off in three throws, you get a par.
I fell outta my chair when I got to this.  Nice one Jamie!

General Banter / An interesting practice round.
« on: October 25, 2011, 07:28:47 PM »
I'm on a little bit of property SW of KC with a nice field west of the house.  It has a few trees and gets mowed in July for the Brome, great for practice play with any disc.
 
Went out a little while ago with the dog and a couple of buzzz's, beautiful evening, trees are all gold and orange, lit up by a great sunset.  Poe is a german short hair mutt with no training but tons of instinct and enthusiasm.  Wasn't long before he pops a covey of quail and I get to thinking about the two Buzzz's in my hand.  So I bring him in, keep him close as we head to the other side of the field and then let him loose, wasn't 5 minutes before he pops another one 200ft in front of me.  I let fly with the Buzzz, missed by a mile but laughed my ass off at the idea of hunting with a disc.

What's best in life?  A man with his discs, the open prairie, and his dog!

Disclaimer:  This is not inhumane, I really think if I woulda hit one it would have went down long enough for the dog to get it.  He's pretty good at this sort of thing, I think he knows that when I have quail for dinner he's gonna get some.

Poe
