OK guys, I am looking at setting up some extra holes for the trilogy challenge. I am hoping for 3 extra holes. Anyone ever been walking the park and think to yourself, that would be a cool hole? I want to hear your ideas for extra holes.

when i did the ace race there i had a hole playing through the trees over by the national gaurd base

Rex Noaker   4 days ago

they are planted in tight rows and it made for an interesting tunnel shot

? What fence? If you're throwing long enough to reach his back yard you should be playing for a living. DUMB!

Max N. Plouck   June 10 at 11:41am

Bryan Parks FYI - the house at the end of the street has no fence! Terrible placement on the basket now.

John Ryan   June 25 at 12:13am

We didn't have a say on its placement didn't even know about it till after it was done

Max N. Plouck    June 7 at 5:43pm

WTF? The basket on #18 in Bryan is GONE!

Hey all. I was thinking of playing at heritage park in michigan tomorrow but wanted to see if anyone had any recon as to whether or not it's worth the drive. Any thoughts?

If it's dry, it's worth playing. The back nine can get pretty swampy after a rain, though. Depending on when you go, I would be willing to act as a guide.

Nick W.   June 10 at 1:01pm

sorry Ben I didnt see the notifications here. I went with a guy I play with here at work who used to play there all the time. It was a pleasant course. It was dry and the the holes were marked very well. They have a new looking board with a course map and at each hole there is a large and tall white ... more

Benjamin Wonders   June 10 at 3:09pm

That's all new since I was there last. Good to hear they're putting some effort into the course.

Benjamin Wonders    May 21 at 9:05pm

How much rain did Bryan get last night? Is the course a swamp?

I threw a round today and it's a mess, but somehow didn't get my feet wet.

Nick W.   May 22 at 1:28pm

I went during lunch today and the only wet spots were the typical two spots on the front. right between one's basket and two's posted tee pad and the right before the basket on two's fairway. Everything else was fairly dry. Pleasant to play today. I will be going out again after work.

Benjamin Wonders   May 22 at 10:50pm

Thanks for the reports, fellas.

Nick W.    May 19 at 7:30pm

I would really like to shoot the back 9 from the white to try it before tomorrow for league but am unsure of where those are...

Benjamin Wonders   May 19 at 8:21pm

10 is same as red. 11 is close to the mulch path. 12 also close to the mulch path kinda under a tree. 13 is next to the green cinder block thing by the batting cages. 14, 15, 16, and 17 are same as red. 18 is by the gazebo. Hope this helps.

Nick W.   May 20 at 6:48am

Thanks Ben, I found 11 and 12 and 13 with little searching but didnt find 18. I didnt have your descriptions to go off of either butI am sure I will see them all this even for league. Hopefully this rain doesn't dampen us too much.

Nick W.    May 19 at 7:22pm

I will playing at rec park here at 745ish if anyone wants to join. As always text me or comment. 4197990228

Throughout the next few weeks of league I would like to find and mark all of the long tees. Ben and myself marked 1, 3, 8, and 9. We were unable to find hole 2. If you know where any of the hard to find ones are, please let me know. I will carry a can of blue marking paint with me during league to mark ones I find. I would also like to replace the missing ones but will need someone who knows their placements help. I would like to get all 3 layouts marked so they are easily playable to try and make the course more appealing to a wider range of people. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

that would be great! good idea. new map new look more people potentially. I will be out after work today I plan on showing up for the league. at 530 but will probably throw some before that as I am getting off around 3 today.

Brian Taylor   May 20 at 2:35pm

I am planning to come out after work today to find and mark the long tees. I will be out of work around 3:30 and plan to be there by 3:45ish. I won't have time to stay for league but I may throw a few from the longs while marking them.

Nick W.   May 20 at 5:07pm

I had to work over just got home

Brian Barclay    May 16 at 11:04am

It has been suggested that we throw a tournament at the end of August or beginning of September. The tournament that was suggested was the Trilogy Challenge. It looks like this may cost around $700 to throw. I haven't added it up exactly in a while but we should be around the $200 range for club funds that could go directly to that cost. Which leads us to where we are going to come up with roughly $500 for the rest. Keep in mind if we sell out the spots we would make all that money back. A ... more

Benjamin Wonders   May 16 at 6:30pm

I'm looking at the page for the Trilogy Challenge, and they're showing event dates from May 31 to August 22, so we should probably try to fall within that range. Looking at the list of events here, I see that the third weekend in August is pretty light. There's a women's C-tier near Lansing, but tha ... more

Finally I want to speak a bit about club leadership. The people running leagues aren't doing it because they are paid or because they have a bunch of extra time on their hands or because they have nothing better to do, they are doing it to create awareness and give people who love this sport an opportunity to see the competitive side of it without costing an arm or a leg. There aren't many clubs that offer free weekly leagues and do so 2 seperate times a week. Thankfully Josh has stepped up t ... more

I'm also going to make a point to say that calling people for violations can ruin rounds. It's a 2 edged sword. It isn't any fun to have someone out there with a ruler measuring off the 10 inches behind your disc every throw (although it is fully within your rights to do so). It also isn't any fun to lose your tag because someone threw the disc in a tree and disregards the stance rule and is throwing from an illegal stance to avoid the hassle of being in a tree. Use some judgment and ask your ... more

Thought I'd clear the air on a few things. I posted the rules from the PDGA on the definition of a lie and what constitutes a legal throw from a stance. I've heard some complaints of people offsetting their "point of contact" by up to 3 feet left or right of their lie and would like to make it known that it is considered a stance violation and can result in a warning which means you would have to rethrow without a penalty. The warning does not have to be seconded by another player. Future vi ... more

Lie: The spot on the playing surface behind the marker, upon which the player takes a stance in accordance with the rules. It is a line 30 centimeters in length extending back along the line of play from the rear edge of the marker disc. The lie for the first throw on a hole is the teeing area. A drop zone is also a lie When the disc is released, a player must: 1. Have at least one supporting point that is in contact with the lie; and, 2. Have no supporting point in contact with the marker ... more

If anyone is interested in going along, I'm heading to Ottawa for the Monday night doubles league tomorrow. Start time is at 6:30. Cost is $5 to play and an optional $10 (one time) if you want in on the ace pool. Hit me up on here or 419-344-1655 if you want to ride along from Defiance.

After some thought I'd like to apologize for my angry outburst at league play today! As I am effectively out of any running in league play since I will miss 4 Sundays. 3 for my Natl Grd responsibilities and 1 to play a tourney. I will keept comments & ideas to myself from now on. I will just come play and have fun. If the Bag Tags are sold out and some one wants one I will sell my #7( provided the rules allow it) as I am done with that mess. All in all great throwing today and even better weather! PEACE!

It was a great day for throwing. I wish everyone had the time to stick around longer so we could have gone around again. Have a good week.

Nick W.    May 7 at 2:25pm

I will be playing around 5:30 today at Rec. Park in Bryan if anyone wants to join me, text me 419 799 0228
