General Banter / Joplin relief fund
« on: May 26, 2011, 10:22:28 am »
I am asking all disc golfers to please donate to the Red Cross for disaster relief.
It kinda irks me when people think they should get something in return for donating money while playing in a tournament that is designed to raise money.
Put yourself in others shoes and realize what those affected truly go through.
My sister's house was hit a few years ago when the F3 tornado touched down by Wyandotte County Lake.
I believe David Underwood's house was hit by the same tornado and he is a casual golfer.
K-Mont has donated his efforts and is there right now.

General Banter / Dave Wismer email
« on: May 16, 2011, 10:55:59 am »
I received this email. I've seen very similar scams.
Has anybody else gotten the same email?
I'm guessing Dave's contacts are getting this.

Horrible Situation !!!Monday, May 16, 2011 7:28 AM
From: "David Wismer" <>View contact detailsTo: undisclosed-recipientsI'm writing this with tears in my eyes, I came down here to London - United Kingdom for a short vacation unfortunately i was mugged at the park of my way to hotel where i stayed, all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off me but luckily for me i still have my passports with me.

I've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and my flight leaves shortly from now but am having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until i settle the bills,

I'm freaked out at the moment, I need help


Rosedale / Sinkholes
« on: March 27, 2011, 10:32:59 am »
Remember when I originally called the UGW to fill the sink holes?
The UGW had put in a work order to fill those. It was obviously never done.
Its time to take a new approach to getting the safety hazards taken care of.
I have a new contact # and will try my new approach.
I'm hoping to have these filled before the Wide Open.

Modified info.

General Banter / Most ever online per day
« on: March 22, 2011, 11:41:25 am »
I have watched this # very curiously for quite some time.
I just noticed it changed from June of 2008 to Feb 17th 2011!!
I don't remember the last # (86?) but we were at 175 by 5:51am on that day.
Now I'm even more curious.

I guess I'm the first to notice.

General Banter / Direction to go for disc golf?
« on: January 23, 2011, 05:39:03 pm »
I was looking at this page when I noticed the header for all those different sports. Where should there be a listing for disc golf  or a link to the PDGA site for disc golf beings these are more along the x-games type sport? I would think PDGA would create more of a stir for at least a semblance of mainstream media like Yahoo sports or ESPN to report the sport.
Any comments from the peanut gallery?
When isn't there any comments?

General Banter / Bald Eagles to see
« on: January 02, 2011, 09:18:57 pm »
I drove to Sqauw Creek Nature Preserve in Mound City, Mo. on New Years Eve day and spotted around 45 eagles.
One spot there were 7 eagles on the same level of a tree.

General Banter / What do you think?

Do you need a Color Guard carrying in the U.S. flag before saying the Pledge of Allegiance before each club meeting?

How about someone to sing the National Anthem before every tournament?

Not serious about the color guard.

Do you have a design we can see yet Dick or is it some big surprise?

Old Pike / Objects for display at Old Pike
« on: September 20, 2010, 09:45:46 am »
There's quite alot of objects on alot of different holes to talk about both during and after every round.
My hole is the over the pond hole. Discglover's Sink Or Swim
I am looking for someone willing to donate or help locate a straight mannequin arm and or a large rubber alligator.
Then I would need someone to help me fabricate the alligator with red LED eyes that are solar powered. I would also like to install a motion sensor in the gator so it woud move and the eyes light up when someone walks by.
Surely I can find some fiendish fellows willing to create some fun.

General Banter / Playstation Commercial
« on: September 14, 2010, 09:59:42 am »
The Playstation Move commercial was on Sunday when I was watching football.
The very first game they show them playing is disc golf.
It had a big display of a basket on their TV while the kids were putting.
I'm surprised nobody else posted they saw it.
I figured I would wait and see if someone else would say they saw it.
