Swope / Breakins at Swope
« on: September 27, 2013, 08:03:37 PM »
I have noticed a rash of car smash and grabs broken glass at Swope. Parking on north side of Elmwood.
Watched a suspicious small green truck park between 4 other cars.  Non disc player. He watched me while I watched him. I waited him out and he left.
Swope is safe, but always be aware of your surroundings..


PS: Glossineer, is this better?

Swope / More trees coming down
« on: September 26, 2013, 08:18:09 PM »
This time by P&R, culling 10 or so diseased or dying trees.

The only ones that may come into play are, as far as I know:
Left position at 7 pin
Tree in the middle at 12
May top broken willow 11/14 in the rough.

There was no mando or paint marks on this specimen.
The KC P&R contract professionals when a tree needs to be removed.
There were no tire marks of heavy equippment. In the past they usually screw up the area and leave ruts.
Just sayin.

JB and buddy heard it starting popping, but did not see it go down, he just mentioned a pair that had pin 7 lit up for glow  and were only throwing that hole.
Black Walnut Husks are the distinctive odor.
It was cut with a fast high powered saw, no ridges, no burn marks.
Will dust for fingerprints and take DNA of everybody I see.
Including you.

Private eye Mr James

Apparently it was cut the night before or day of league (which I doubt, since P&R was mowing) The saw mark shows a really brand new chain  and was 5' from the ground, indicating a tall person
or had a ladder. I think it was cut to damage the tree so it would die. 80 year old walnut, no disease, good resin core. According to witnesses it started creaking/popping after dark.  After league.
Some guys were playing glow back and forth on 7, and saw it go down.
If anyone knows about please respond.
I am so depressed,  I have tried not to hit that for 32 years. Now I won't have to worry about it.
If you don't want to play with trees I suggest you go to Nevada (the state not the town).
Also they were drinking bottle New Belgium Fat Tire and smoked Camels to the butt.. 
They also cleaned up the wood chips. Indications are they were going to harvest the wood after the tree dried out They just cut too far. it could have killed somebody.
And Tank, I am not drunk (this time)

Don't throw it in the lake, tree and high brush and we would not have this perceived problem.

One more time.....
It is OK to love your disc and date them, but once you get married, they will leave you.
Unless you put it on a nail on the wall.
Get over it.
That is why God made Disc Golf Stores.

Sage advice.

Fishy, I did a drive by and walkthrough of Swope #2 parking and surrounding.
Also checked ProShop.
Did not see them. But did add quite a good amount to my used condom collection.
Thanks, 40016 and counting.

General Banter / Re: What is your favorite basket?
« on: July 10, 2013, 07:49:23 PM »
imho really? really?
All baskets have pros & cons.
You are playing the same basket as everybody else in your group at any given time, at any given course. It is what it is.

I saw Tank have a minor meltdown during the Wide Open, cussing the basket and yelling something to the effect " these baskets need to be in a museum" the other PRO players looked a little bewildered at his reaction as they did and  did not make their putts too. Adjust accordingly, although in my case just cuss accordingly. Although praying is not uncalled for. Sorry Tank, just sayin'.

As far as cost, mostly the cities buy these. I would assume there is a RFQ (Request for quotation)
which denotes a general spec on the baskets, so as to not leave any viable vendor out.
It is up to the mfg to submit a reasonable price and qualify for acceptance.
Generally, they don't have to take low bid, if the budget and logistics are right. But Generally, they do take low bid.  The good thing is that there are multiple manufactures. Praise the Lord.
I don't know much but I know this:
It is the Indian, not the arrow. And it definitely ain't  the basket.
Sorry, 2 cents
