way to go man!

Justin Abram   January 7, 2013 at 12:48pm

I've mentioned it a few times after the club meeting. She's interested, I'll ask again.

Jayne Snider   January 8, 2013 at 3:01am

:) Thanks. Just going to be all about fun- we will do some crazy side games for prizes, but scores for the round probably won't matter!

I was out for a casual round at Fitz today. A reporter was out to do a story on.. idk, snow shoeing and cross country skiing lessons that were cancelled due to lack of snow. Anyway, he asked if he could do a story about playing disc golf on a snowy Sunday afternoon. I managed to get in some good plugs for CCR, local courses, discgolfscene and the Fitz Fundraiser. Who know's how much will make the paper. Keep an eye out, he said it'd be A-3 in tomorrow's LSJ! I'll put a link up if I can find the article online.

He didn't use most of the things I rambled about, but hey, club got mentioned and it was on the front page of their site all Monday morning!

Larry Dalimonte   January 8, 2013 at 7:38pm

Yea gotta take the exposure when you can. Even though it sort of seems like he had an outline for the original story and just cut and paste disc golf into it. Photos were pretty sweet though nice action shots!

Hey I lost a green / blue samsung reclaim cell phone on the course last night during a glow round at about 10pm. I think i lost it on hole 14 when I tripped over my bag, didnt notice anything fall out but of course that cell phone did. I went to check for it after work and had no luck. There was a group behind us and maybe they picked it up? My friend Kirby thinks Matt Rinker was in the group and some other guy with a goatee that he recognized. It does not have service, I use it as an MP3 player. My current number is 517 515 4236 if found thank you!

Hey everyone! We here at Knollwood are trying to raise money for merchandise to sell for our cleanup and improvement efforts. Follow the link at the bottom of this message for a full description, a short video presentation, and the opportunity to either donate, or share my message with others.



I have just heard that the director of the City of Kalamazoo Parks department has resigned, so we have a new opportunity to truly change the image of Knollwood.

I'd play. But only if we could use leds, I don't have any glow discs.

Matt Rinker    December 7, 2012 at 4:10pm

you may be right, but unless I do a weekend day with one day and one glo rd, it would be a weekday with one night, one round.

I think people would be willing to do a Mon-Tues night event provided to round didn't start too early or late... 630 would be a solid start time. I also know the woods wont have a problem with it, but we may have to pay player fees at burch... burch is amazing to play, but better during the day when you can see all the trees on the back 10 on rivers edge... renegades trail would be fun as long as we played short to long.

I don't know if people would be willing to commit to a 2 day tournament, but personally, I think it would be awesome.

Matt Rinker    December 7, 2012 at 3:58pm

Prob woods since people are most familiar with the course, but I'd be open to a 2 day thing with one rd at woods and one at burch.

Joshua Siwek    December 7, 2012 at 3:54pm

I would play a glow tournament, woods or burch?

I played up at sleepy last weekend and I saw the path of destruction myself. Is that something they do annually? I don't think it was like that last year. Obviously it was for whatever pipeline it is that runs under there, but they took down some important obstacles in the process. The big bush on the top of the hill on 8 is gone, and the foliage along the left side of the hill of 12 is leveled with the tree on the right side of the fairway closer to the basket gone as well.

im sure that wasn't part of some annual maintenance, i just hope there isnt more to come, like they were clearing things out to begin digging to put more lines in or something

Larry Dalimonte   December 11, 2012 at 5:22pm

I figured since the whole stretch of land along the pipe was cleared that they wanted to keep the vegetation under control so that roots don't interfere with the line itself. But I suppose they could be clearing the land to do something else as well. I wonder if a private company is in charge of that, or the govt since its a state park.

@ Alex wow really damn dude thats wack lol

AWWWW. It's my grandmas 90th birthday on Saturday, or I'd come throw down some help. Guess I'll show up later and just enjoy the fruit of ya'lls labor. MSU was always a good fundamentals/wind control course, and the only one I could play in an hr after work this time of year. Very cool news!
