You ****in' hippie Scawt!

CaCl is better for the concrete but it will irritate hands and is harmful to vegetation and animals. Best is the potassium or magnesium de-icers. Safer for the concrete and less harmful to vegetation and animals.

CaCl ok Scawt?

Thanks for the update Mike. However...

Please do not salt the pads at Indy as they are new and need at least one year of curing before it will be safe to salt. If the pads are salted there is a high risk of doing PERMANENT DAMAGE to the concrete. Cracking, yes cracking. Please thrown down sand or kitty litter or anything but salt. Thanks!

Managed to take today off, so I swung out this morning to shovel some tees while playing. I have learned a lesson today....Disc golfers are muther fucking crazy. The will play in almost any element just to knock out 18 :) I was surprised to see that there has been so much activity on the Chuck D course, snow on the tees was compacted down. I figured a few die hards would be out there, but I was NOT anticipating that I would be scraping ice off the tees :P :P So I brought a kids shovel, and ... more

I am probably going to head out to Indy Saturday morning. I will be bringing a shovel to clear off tees and possibly dig out the tees on the picnic course. Unless someone beats me too it :) I will more than likely have my caddy with me, but she'll probably be in tow behind me on a her sled


Mike Fortunato    December 9, 2010 at 4:43pm

Yeah. All 18 on the picnic are in for the season.

left a orange roc on the course...#25101 on it holla ill give you another, just love that one.


Peter Wyngaard    November 23, 2010 at 6:12pm

I fear I may have left a white Challenger with the older-school blue bar stamp (challenger written across the front) on it either on Chuck D or the 8-hole Picnic course the weekend before last. It's a little beat in, so I'd like to get it back! WYNGAARD is written in sharpie on the back. Thanks!


Matt "The Spider" Swider    November 23, 2010 at 9:58am

Grant Anderson    November 15, 2010 at 8:30pm

Brandon LaVigne    November 15, 2010 at 6:18pm

Found a disc in the lake today. Description of disc gets it back.

Only problem with moving 18 into the woods on the right side is the Black Tee for 1 is insanely far. I can foresee most of the big dawgs throwing right into the Red Tee or close to it (if they don't nail it straight). Or even someone from the White Tee just letting go too late and releasing to the right. There is a good cluster of trees though. But I agree, there can be some great shots from inside the woods. And you're welcome.


Scott White    November 15, 2010 at 1:56pm

Scott R and Mike E thanks for the feedback on the red tees. I just went through them again (in my head) and I think the two holes we want to target right now are 6 and 18. Hole 6 red is kind boring and on sloped ground. I like Scott Ransleys suggestion of moving it to a flat area and having it play over the pond (or around if you want to play safe) from the top of the hill. Hole 18 red also could change as the hyzer does seem redundant and it there is a lot of opportunity to make a cool ... more

If I didn't have to work all week, I would be playing the new pins :) Will have to wait for the weekend I reckon

When playing the Picnic Course please be aware that this is SHARED USE AREA. If you encounter other park users on some of the holes please inform them kindly what you are doing, and ask them nicely to let you throw. SKIP THE HOLE if necessary and come back to it later. Other option is to "send a blocker" to deflect shots from hitting other park users. PLEASE TREAT THE OTHER NON-DISC GOLF PARK USERS WITH RESPECT AND CARE. It is a privilege to even have this course and if we screw up then the course could be gone forever.
