yes hole 4 looks great now, the tee signs have been put in. now we just need these trees to start growing...
The wind was HOWLING, 20-25 MPH steady with gusts to over 30 and even 40 by the end of the second round. Putts from outside the circle were simply out of the question, and any disc which showed its underside to the wind would promptly blow away, often traveling further to the side than it had forward.
Honestly, I could have left almost all of my discs at home, as every hole was played with a sequence of either a bonkers overstable driver for headwinds or a paper-plate flippy driver for tailwinds, followed by a Harp, and then a putter. (And more often than not, the putter was for dropping or tapping into the basket, as putts from outside the circle were simply out of the question.)
After the first round, there was a three-way tie for the lead among myself, Cynthia Ricciotti, and Kim Giannola. In the second round the wind was blowing even harder than the first round. Still, I used what I had learned about the wind and went for some longer putts at the fringes of the circle, sometimes with success, and in any case always making the come-backer if I did not. I think I tried this about 9-10 times, and converted 3-4, which happened to be the margin of victory.
Every exposed part of my body is parched from being in the grip of gale-force and bone-dry winds all day long. My hands, face, and even my legs from ankles to knees are dry like tissue paper.
