Found a Champion Purple Mamba in the bushes on hole 11 (the upper 515ft hole) and called the number but voicemail was not set up. I will keep trying, but let me know if it was yours :)

Wanting to head to Hole Doubt...but does anyone know if it is happening tomorrow? I was going to play Pier otherwise. Thanks!

Found a Road Runner in the Canyonview lake today. Let me know if it's yours. Tell me the weight, color, and type, because there is no number. If it's not claimed, it will go to our camper box. When we find discs, we try to get them back :)

I guess those Portland peeps have a lot of money to buy discs...I saw plenty of pros lose discs in the water yesterday. I think those Portland peeps should play the layout yesterday then see if they want to put the baskets closer...lol.

Rick Saffeels   August 14 at 10:17am

Haha very true!

The Ronin   August 14 at 7:40pm

the pros made Trojan look like Leverich yesterday...truly humbling.

Mr CLEAN    August 11 at 12:43pm

thankyou for the sweet disc hookup <proto PA2> at plastic match league yesterday... so hole 2 I always huk a skyzer bomb high right and let it spike in works almost everytime. yesterday it parked me aboot 35 feet out behind a tree and ceiling. so I stretch wayout on my knees flick putt my new pa2 and boomstick for a birdie!

Hey Rick I have a fun idea for a tournament for you to do if you'd like. You could run an ace race or a normal round. Either way. At like church or Pioneer and call it the challenger challenge. And each player gets a discraft ti challenger or 2 as your players Pack. I don't know I just thought that would be a fun idea.

Permalink
Rick Saffeels   August 6 at 2:20pm

That wold be fun, but Ti Challengers are only fundrasier discs so you'd have to get them "CFR" stamped and all. Fun idea. I just heard of another one from 2009 that I think I will try too. :)

Erik Hayworth   August 6 at 2:22pm

Well yeah I was thinking it could be a fundraiser for canyonview. What is your other idea?

Do you mean Pioneer Park? Church Park doesn't have baskets in tree stumps. :-)

Rick Saffeels   July 6, 2014 at 1:47am

Do I have a problem with keeping my orange 175g TD or what?! Second one. Let me know if you found it at the state hospital or Cascade. I didn't have it for Taloali :( thanks because I know someone has it.

Jeff "MaxPsych" Heltsley   March 25, 2014 at 3:08pm

I played OSH yesterday at lunch, and I asked the folks here who play and/or do the grounds maintenance. No sightings of your disc as of this morning here at the hospital.

Rick Saffeels   March 25, 2014 at 5:31pm

I got it back! Thanks!

Jeff "MaxPsych" Heltsley   March 25, 2014 at 6:15pm
