It's a pretty fun course.  Fairly open overall, with medium to long holes combined with mostly flat terrain and a water hole as bonus. 

Also make sure you play Warner Park if you have time!

Rosedale / 16's fairway

I've been kinda absent on the forums so this might have already been covered, but what happened to the two guardian trees on 16's fairway?

I'm assuming these had to be removed due to that same beetle infestation?  Poor trees  :(  I hugged the one still standing and I think it made him feel better about losing his friends.

Yeah, I've been throwing Pure's for over a year and a half now and have nothing but great things to say about them. 

I originally switched over after putting with Magic's for the longest time.  My main complaint with Gateway is their lack of consistency in the plastic, making it a total guessing game when ordering online.  Sometimes that disc labeled as SSS comes to you feeling like a firm instead.  Bleh :/

Anyways, pick one up and see if it feels good in your hands.  The disc itself has a fairly shallow rim compared to something like a Wizard, and has a pronounced beveled edge making it pretty unique.  I think it's the best feeling putter on the market, and the Lat64 zero line plastic is hands down my favorite plastic for circle putting.  Be advised that the zero line gets banged up pretty quickly if you are using it off the tee.

As far as flight, they are pretty neutral to slightly understable with a good amount of glide.  It's not going to handle a strong headwind without turning over, but in calm conditions it's stable enough to not have to worry about overpowering it.  I've heard the Opto version referred to as a mini-Buzzz, and I couldn't agree more.  Put it on it's line and watch it go towards the target. 

Give it a shot if interested, I love it but YMMV.  I use the grippy zero-soft line for putting, and the Opto exclusively for all tee and upshots.

As a Mission resident, this would be a very welcomed addition to the area - 9 holes or not.  Rosedale is great, but attempting to play solo is generally frustrating due to how busy it is during all hours of the day.

Based on the comments it seems the suburban moms aren't aware of any of the benefits disc golf.  :(

I sure hope the plan goes through!

I say we throw out Jake's score.  Clearly that's an outlier intended to skew the stats for everyone else. 

Also, Greg I don't see Kevin Zane's score listed.  I think he shot a 52.

I finally got a chance to play Longview on Saturday morning, and despite it being set short I really enjoyed it.  I kept waiting for these monster ~650ft blind dogleg holes, but they never came.  Probably for the best though, as I was in a bit of a hurry anyways.

We started on the back nine, due to around 20 players starting a mini and getting ready to tee off on 1.  We got lost on a couple of holes, but otherwise wasn't terribly difficult to find the next tee.  Could definitely use some signs though, but I'm assuming that's coming soon. 

Put up a 55 after missing a few easy putts.  I'm excited to go back and play it again, hopefully the pins get moved frequently.

Did Olathe get as much rain as midtown?  Just curious how muddy the teepads will be tonight.

Anyone have luck finding Founders KBS today?  Apparently I'm not part of the cool kids club at Gomers.  :'(

Jack, I seem to be missing from last nights scores.  I was on the same card as Joe, Matt, and Jordan and shot a 60.

I actually thought this years bottled Hop Slam was on par with last years, and it's still probably my favorite seasonal.  However, I wasn't real impressed with it on tap down at Flying Saucer.  I did have a cold at the time, so there's that.  I would agree with Palmer though that Double Jack ranks right up there with it, minus the honey.   

I've been getting into imperial stouts lately, and my latest love affair is the bourbon barrel-aged from Schlafly.   http://schlafly.com/beers/styles/bourbon-barrel-aged-imperial-stout/  Drinks similar to last years Rye On Rye for me.  I honestly wasn't real hot with Schlafly in general, but between this and their T-IPA they are slowly becoming a label I look for when browsing through the coolers. 

When can we expect KBS to come in?

Can you clarify what you mean by 'start up screen'?  If it's not getting past the initial BIOS screen, you're most likely looking at a hardware problem.  If it's stuck at the loading Windows splash screen, using F8 to boot to safe mode and troubleshooting from there is probably going to be your best bet. 

Did it just start having these issues?  You can attempt to restore the system to a previous date once in safe mode if so.  If all else fails, you should at least be able to remove the hard drive, throw it into another computer and retrieve the data unless it's severely messed up.

Matt - I owe you tag #30 for the second round.  If I still have it next time I see you it's all yours provided you don't have something lower. 

It was a fun tournament no doubt, couldn't have asked for better weather in February.  Both rounds our card had very little backups up until the end, and everything seemed to flow rather well for having ~90 players in the field.  Thanks for hosting Scott, enjoyed seeing a great turnout for Shawnee Mission.

Also, I got my first tan line for the year!
