Yes the park is working on getting the orange ones out on the Chuck D. Not sure if it will happen though. Some welding on the locking collar will be required to make it work though. Mach III and Chainstar don't have exactly the same sleeves. Not sure exactly what needs to be done but the park staff is more than competent in these areas.
Now.. dry dry dry dry dry.. Any word on the wetness on the north side picnic? I know the fairways on hole 1 and hole 17 can get a little mushy at times..

@ Shaun....I thought Scott had mentioned there was a plan in the works to move those champ baskets over to the Chuck D. I know the guys at the 101 are doing their best to make that happen.
I too will miss this course. I feel like a noob not knowing this course even existed in my back yard for so long, it's a shame I got to play this course a handful of times. I am going to try for a Sunday run, but it might be early, not sure yet

it is a shame this will be the last time i get to play the picnic. thank you for your generosity peter, i only hope the baskets find a worthy home on a course that is as good or better than the picnic.

I am out there often Dan. If I see that disc, expect some fists of fury from me ;)

left behind a yellow 2011 No Foolin' Z Hornet on hole 3 yesterday, it was late in the day and not many ppl were there, so i went back this morning hoping to retrieve it, and it wasn't in the bush i shanked it in. somebody picked it up. it has my name & number & ace hole 4 lakeshore on the bottom. if anybody sees this disc in some casual's possession, i will pay $50 bucks IF you punch them right in the face for me, and return the disc. thanks.

It's a sad day but we kind of knew it was going to happen. On August 15th Independence Lake Park will break ground in a new waterpark that will take up the area where holes 9,10,11,16 Picnic are currently located. This is essentially the end of the Picnic course as we know it. So this years Loco Sixo will be your last chance to play it in full. The course will remain in the ground until Monday morning May 2nd.

On August 15th Independence Lake Park will break ground in a new waterpark that will take up the area where holes 9,10,11,16 Picnic are currently located. This is essentially the end of the Picnic course as we know it. So this years Loco Sixo will be your last chance to play it in full. The course will remain in the ground until Monday morning May 2nd. They are working on making the orange Mach III baskets the permanent baskets of the Chuck D course. It may require some welding/rework but looks to be a good possibility.
The good news is that the park is thrilled with the addition of disc golf and there are plans to expand it to 24 or 27 holes in the future. They are very happy with the added traffic in the park especially during the colder months when the park is usually empty.
They also made it a point to tell us how cool all of the regulars are out there. So thanks regulars for being cool. Lets keep up the overall atmosphere of respect out there.

Dubs are starting back up this Saturday 4/16/2011. Not officially yet (TBD when that start is) But I'll be out there running the show as usual. Bobby Mac should be holding it down for me today, (4/9) even though I expect the turnout to be pretty darn small what with the Kensington Tourney today.
Cmon out and holler @ us! We still have the 26 hole loop going, most likely going to be mostly longs as we've been playing shorts all winter long.
Normal routine, pick chips for partners, cali flip $5 extra, we vote to decide the format before we head out.

Yes sadly March 15th ish is the schedule closure of the orange 18.. Same time as last year. November 15th ish is the scheduled re-opening.
Of course you can play the picnic in much more ideal conditions at either Loco Sixo (registration now open) http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/Loco_Sixo_2011 or Union Strikes in October when the full 18 is installed for one weekend only.
