Tournaments / Re: Snowman Open - Olathe - Jan 1st
« on: December 25, 2008, 06:12:08 PM »
When I first started playing the club picnic had a triples round. The attempt was to team up a more advanced player, a semi-advanced player and a beginner. It was helpful being on the same team of more advanced players to get pointers and make you wanna get out more to practice. Just a suggestion.

I am curious who the originator actually was of Homie. I have a feeling Buckle and a couple hog legs was behind most of it. Probably a few guys playing and pondering and next thing you know we're playing for a Homie doll. Hey, I think Danno was still around back then wasn't he?? I bet he was behind it too.
Anyway, I'm calling up a few guys and if anyone has anybody they can call without internet access please do so. Anybody that's never played Homie before will learn this is quite an experience. Remember to bring 20 one dollar bills plus the 5 for overall score.

I think Arturo played much better in tournaments because of playing Homie and everybody trying to distract him.

i know the basket is worth more than you can get from a scrapyard but it was just a suggestion to cover all aspects.

Once you read this please post how many showed besides you if anyone did show plus the results. I believe this thread is also supposed to be under the Winter Leagues section. It clearly states Homie under that heading.

you called it off but then changed your mind last night??? if you were going to do it anyway you should have never called it off. i called everybody back i previously told about it and told them it was off. now if no one shows you cannot say anything about anyone but yourself.

A place to check would be a metal place in case they are selling them for scrap. Surely they would know if they received any. One must use an ID when selling scrap because of people steeling copper and then selling it as scrap.

Mantis you must also call everybody on the call list if its still in the box. That is if the #'s are the same.
I have a few people I can call like Buckle.
BTW Jack, I was there. Arturo was not playing Homie then. I can't think of anyone else. Also the last time Homie was being played, pros were playing. It was supposed to be for Advanced Am's ONLY!!
Once it is up for grabs we need some stricter rules to keep him more active. Like if you fail to play him for no reason for a continous period there will be a stiff fine.  $100!! And if so agreed upon by the peers of disc golfers, it may be higher for extended periods!! Fines could be put towards The Worlds or different charities or a donation to The Ice Bowl or to the club. $25 will be pulled from the fine for payment of skins and best round for the next time  it is played. Just like Mantis SHOULD have an extra $25 this Sunday. Tell your brother you spent his $25 Christmas present you were getting him.

The best Homie day I ever had was when we had 12 counting me. We were playing Down Under. No skins had been hit and I hit a hole in one on 8. I won $88 for the skins plus $55 for the people that witnessed it. Then I won 4 more skins somewhere else on the course. That was $44. I deducted my dollar for each hole. Plus I had worst score and took Homie home. I was happy as Hell!! Can anybody top that!! Not meaning money and best round. I mean hitting good money and still taking Homie home. I think I was the first and only to do that. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

Well I called Buckle and Mike Lockwood but good luck getting people to show up in  20 below wind chill factor.
We won't be mad if you picked a different Sunday.

Funny Funny  people,,,, I asked for it and haven't yet received it.  Although he has recently moved it is not an excuse so I go through his things and see if we can find him.   If so I will post where and when Homie will be...

That response sounds vaguely familiar. Heres a post from when we had the picnic.

I am starting a posse to search for and locate the Homer Simpson doll being held hostage.
Anyone interested in joining my posse please leave a message here.
Maybe if the cuplrit sees enough interest in bringing back Homey that Homey will  again be in play!!!
If you need to just resign the doll do so. Just bring him to the picnic w/$25 or play the $1 $kin$ on either the top or bottom on Rosedale.
If you resign the doll I will play down under for Homey for the $1 $kin$ or the group can vote on which course.
Plus i am having a bagtag challenge along with it.
BTW its 20 holes -plus $5 best score overall!!
So if you don't win anything it will cost you an additional $25 to play this...
Bring some dollar bills people!!!

I am usually a regular but haven't been able to make it but twice so far. I like splitting it up somehow just so it doesn't take so long. Its not as bad with small #'s, but when you get alot of people attending then there's an issue of everyone teeing off on one.
Sure I enjoy getting to see a few drives but I am waiting instead of playing like I could be doing.

Where the hell is Homie?

Well Tom. I think you should ask Mr  Dresser where Homie is. I confronted Steve Dresser about it and he said his brothers says people will not show up when he had said when and where!!  If you look on posts under Homie he admits his brother has it. I suggested he turn it over immediately but never heard anything. That was last Spring.  You may have better results or maybe we can shame him into handing Homie and the contents of the box over. Hopefully fully intact!!!!!!!

Didn't they mix the mission statement wording up a little on the National Museum of Play website?  I would think it would read Encouraging play to explore learning creativity and discovery.
