New Years Day Triples at Swope
« on: December 08, 2014, 11:41:28 AM »
It's the 3rd year for New Years Day random draw triples. This year is going to be different, it's NOT going to be at Rosedale, it's going to be at Swope this year and there's going to be a $5 buy in. $1 ace fund optional. 100% pay out to the top 3 teams, instead of having 2 big groups like last year. We will draw cards for partners. Get your team find another team to play with and find a tee, start at 12:30. If no one hits an ace we will have CTP and pay out top 2. Sign up at 12:00 tee 12:30. We had 30+ show up last year and I hope to see more this year.

Come alone or in groups. Draw for teams of three. Play in groups of six.

Looks like random draw. Not pick your partner...

Will the New Years' tradition of playing the course backwards also be implemented?  Two flags easily marks the tee area...

That was for the Roll it back and do it over at rosedale, where you had it backwards and had to roll your first shot.  I miss that silliness.

OTTO?

Right, like Otto reads these things.....

Before moving here in 1992, Lynne and I would attend the Backing it Out and Rolling it Over New Year's Day celebration put on by Dave "Dog" Underwood. You'd "back out" the old year by playing Rosey backwards, and then "roll in"  the New Year by having to throw either rollers or tomahawks. (I think you had to putt upside down as well). Dog would always have a big batch of hot spiced rum, which later became a tradition for Ice Bowl that continues to this day.  Several people ran it after Dog, including Otto. I ran it a couple of times as well. One year there was snow, which kind of put a hurt on the "rolling it over" portion, and I believe the second round was played down under. And that is today's historical review, subject to the shortcomings of long-term memory.

I'd be screwed as my rollers are usually and accident and my tomahawks are an emergency only fling out of the shiy.

I have an UnderDOG disc from Wide Open 1992, XD.  Thanks for the note, I remembered it being a back it out something and rolling something.  I had some fun playing it for certain, couldn't remember the exact plan.  Otto was the last to attempt it I believe.  Hence my reference to him.  Nice to know not only the history of that, but also the Spiced Rum tradition!

 Two of my favorite things about winter golf in KC:
 * Yaj's DU DuBs
 * Playing Rosie backwards on Sundays, with the Vets!!

I though about doing it at Rosedale but Swope hasn't seen any love since the Roc vs Buzz so it just makes since to do it there.  Plus we are going to play all short pads for this event there hoping for lots of aces.  Maybe next year we will return to Rosie and play it backwards.  I'm really hoping for a big turn out.

Cool thing is Underdog started playing again this last year. Sidenote: he got Paul Ecklund into the game. Thanks to Jack, the spiced rum tradition, which got transfered to the Ice Bowl by Lynne and Kelly, continues.

The biggest problem with the back it out portion at Rosedale is that ... it's at Rosedale. The park is very busy and it can get a little dicey. I guess if you rid of blind holes like 10-9 it would be ok.

The last year we did the back it out roll it over event, Otto, myself, and a few others were practicing it with little to no one at the park and while practicing 10-9, supposedly, I hit a young lady who was standing next to the basket with her boyfriend... who I found out later was Tom Mollencamp. We thought we heard someone yell but never saw anyone and went about our business. A couple years later I was at a club meeting and Tom was there and we were chatting and I brought up the event and how I thought I hit someon and that we thought we had heard someone yelling at us and he said. "That was you?? I was so pissed off at whoever threw that disc. We had to leave..." and blah blah blah. Suffice to say, I apologized and vowed to never throw that hole again.

Great story, I know.

As a newbie I have no idea what the set up would be exactly but it has got me thinking that I want to play Rosie backasswards or a variety of it.  I think I'd have to do it in the middle of the night.
