General Banter / Courses you never played before
« on: August 12, 2010, 10:39:13 am »
Our list of local courses has grown so much that I have yet to play several courses.
I thought it would be interesting to see what other people have yet to play certain courses.
If responding please put courses in the order you are itching to play first and the least of your concerns to play last.

Old Pike and William Yates tie
Legacy Park
The 9 hole course by Park University
Shawnee Mission

I think there is a Junior High course out there somewhere. I'd put that one in there after Legacy if so.
The Junior High course in Belton is non existant now though. I drove through there a few months back and its gone.

General Banter / Parade section in the K.C. Star

First of all. I wanna point out Tammy brought this to my attention before I read all the guffaws.

15 ways to enjoy summer as reported in the Parade section.
Under trying a new sport it suggests disc golf.
It describes what the sport is and what you need. Although it says a Frisbee instead of golf disc.
It also said "Find a course near you, or learn how to create your own at"
It also has a injury risk level of 2.
The try a new sport suggestion was listed in the ninth slot.

General Banter / Telescoping nets at Young Park
« on: June 16, 2010, 10:29:40 am »
I asked about this in the lost and found.
I decided to make it a poll and see what everyone on here thinks.

I'm thinking about getting 4 or 5 telescoping nets for discs that end up in the ponds at Young Park.

Plus you can respond whether you think they will stay in place or grow legs and walk off.

General Banter / KC Star Sports section: Piece on Mason Finley
« on: June 08, 2010, 10:33:36 am »
There's a piece in the paper about Mason Finley. A kid who has the national high school discus record. 236' 6"
He happens to be Jared Finley's son.
Jared Finley was considered a top discus thrower in his time competing against the nations top throwers.
Dan Weinert was a classmate and track teamate of Jared Finley.
I used to compete against Jared and Dan in junior high and high school.
That brings back alot of memories of competing against the top throwers in the nation.

General Banter / Disc Golf Course suggestions
« on: May 20, 2010, 11:40:26 am »
I'm going to the Smoky Mountains in late June.
I'll be staying close to Maggie Valley, North Corolina. Its close to Ashville.
It appears there are several college, high school and grade school courses out there.

My preference is to play with awesome scenery ,which will be a given, and play a course similar to Down Under.
So I'm squelching courses with ALOT of long holes.

I have checked the PDGA website looking for my closest course and here's the results to choose from.
The first number being how many holes at the course and the next # is how many miles from where I'm staying.
The last # is the rating each course is rated through PDGA

Here's a pic I took.
This belongs on a disc golf calender or something.

Thanks goes to K-Mont for helping resize this.

The actual sized pic is much neater but its still cool.
I took it last Saturday.
I may be out to take pics there again in hopes the leaves are neater looking.
that is if they are still there.

Found and Lost / Spare key found at Rosie Hole 10
« on: October 05, 2009, 01:31:26 pm »
I am guessing its a spare car key. Just one single key and definately a spare. Nothing else.
Turned into Rick at the RAC and most likely at Disc Golf World.

Found and Lost / #10 Pitt Disc Golf Club bag tag found
« on: October 05, 2009, 01:28:25 pm »
Found up top on hole 9 at Rosie bearing a name on  the back.
I turned it in at the RAC to Rick. Most likely at Disc Golf World now.

Club Archives / 999
« on: July 28, 2009, 09:57:59 pm »
I noticed quite a few 999's.
The one that really stuck out was Angela Tschiggfrie.
Any word on what happened to everyone?

General Banter / Kelloggs ball golf scramble July 25th
« on: July 23, 2009, 10:28:50 am »
I wanted to share that I am playing in this tournament at Painted Hills.
We'll be teeing off around 10am and last group tees at 11am.
My group tees at 10:20am.
There are approximately 5 teams contending for prizes.
There is a CTP and longest putt competition too.
The team I put together is called Team Mission Impossible because we self destruct every 60 seconds.
My team members mission, should they except, is to make all the shots while I drink all the beer.
We will be using the scoring methods of Dewey, Cheetham & Howe!!

One of my team members so happens to be the son-in-law of the gentleman that owns Knuckleheads.
My team member's birthday party is that same night at Knuck's and gave me free tickets to see Chubby Carrier.

Club Archives / Top pros and courses
« on: July 22, 2009, 11:08:05 am »
I was looking for something to print that any normal person can understand where certain divisions are playing for people at work that are asking about it.
I am not up on what the division lettering means.
They are mainly asking where the top pros will be plus what divisions will be at Swope.

Club Archives / Hot and humid climate

Please take time to properly hydrate with water and electrolyte replacement sport drinks.
The locals know how bad it gets this time of year around here but I especially want to encourage the out of towners to be properly prepared and safe.
