Week 8, August 4 set up.

Tall grass is safe.  3 minute rule for lost discs is in effect.  If you can't find your disc in 3 minutes, re-throw from your approximate previous lie with a 1 stroke penalty.  Everyone must help look for discs.  If you can help each other spot that would be ideal.

Other course OB rules apply.

1.  Long
2.  Middle
3.  Long to temp basket on island.  Grass before wall is safe.  Only street is OB.  Island rules.  Must come to rest on island.  If you don't come to rest, then throw from where you were previously crossed from in to out of bounds.
4.  Short
5.  Long
6.  Short
7.  Long
8.  Short
9.  Short
10.  Short
11.  Middle
12.  Long
13.  Short right
14.  Long
15.  Long
16.  Short
17.  Long
18.  Short

There might be a short 19th hole.  Sunset is 8:27 so I am keeping that in mind.

Par 55 unless I add a 19th hole then par 58.

Sign up starts ar 5:30.  Tee off at 6:00.
$5 for kcfdc members and $6 for non-members.  Add a buck for the ace fund.  Ace fund starts at around $309 after the ace last week.

See you tomorrow night!

For me the Macana was a straight flyer.  Pumped in a 60 footer on 3 for a bird and made 4 other putts from 20-25 feet for birds.  Had more issues with the sampo.  I just couldn't get enough birdie chances.  Missed one because one of my playing partners wouldn't quit making jokes while I was putting from 10 feet.  Sigh.  I should've stepped away.  Upshot were point and shoot with the Macana-throw straight at the basket and land close.  If I was to putt with it consistently I would want a little firmer plastic but I really like the glow wizard and hard judge.

I noticed too that the Macana had an aversion to sitting on the ground near the basket. It would roll in the most improbable way.

Sampo - Very overstable for me. I don't throw with much arm speed and it was difficult for me to control.
Evidence - Threw this on 17 of the holes. The disc held its lines and glided nicely. I really liked this disc and will probably add it to my bag.
Macana - Great for upshots, but was too stiff (in my opinion) to putt with. I would get a large kick and roll every time I hit the basket. Maybe just bad luck?

Tonight at Prairie Center league, there is a basket available for an ace on the island hole.  2 I believe.

Be sure to sign up for the Ace Race at Swope if you haven't!  It's a fun event.  This year the discs are putters.  My basket will be out there somewhere.  That's on August 29.

On August 30, at Swope is the Matchboxx 64, a modified match play.  4 people on a card and you get points for winning versus the others on your card.

And if you haven't signed up, the Midwest Amateur Championship is August 15 and 16.  The field is already over 250 players!

The set up for tomorrow night's league will be posted soon.

Got it, thanks guys.

Tee Times will be posted on the pdga.com site for the event on Thursday August 13th.  Then you will need to be at your first round course for your Div/Pool prior to your tee time
19
this is different in that it is tee times, so before your tee time you will have a rules meeting with the starter going over the ground rules on the course.  Watch the PDGA site or other methods typically for the tee times for you.

First time playing two different courses in a tournament.  Hows this whole thing work?   Where and when is the players meeting?  (Rec Div.)
