All disc golfers that attend the meeting with us will be rewarded with a Pizza and Pasta dinner at Reidy's after our presentation at the meeting. We will be asking the city to devote more resources to maintanence (mowing/clearing) the back portion of the Lincoln Park Disc Golf Course, and to ask permission for them to allow us to perfom some of the work to save them some $$.

I can't believe that I am jumping in the middle of this but here goes... As a guy that used to run a different league as a volunteer I do know that there are three main struggles in a volunteer organization. In no particular order they are communication, volunteerism, and delegation. When you are running the show, you at least have an idea of everything that is going on. You tend to assume that other people have this same level of knowledge. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of effort ... more

Since you dont know me, I'll let the Pat thing go, for the future I request as humbly as I can please use Patrick. I am not a board member, I also hardly play. I show up to assist because no one else was available. I apologize if I do not seem friendly I show up do whats asked and leave. As far as meetings, Have you taken the inititive to ask when the next meeting is? I know Jim showed up to the last meeting with some great ideas. Also your concerns are exactly what needs to b ... more

well pat i dont agree as a new member i have been told nothing. i dont even know when these meeting are taking place. i know nothing pat. as a member i should be told these things. Im adult along with others that are part of this association and i feel that im left in the dark about stuff. I feel that things are not told to members. people shouldnt have the power 2 elected themselves beacuse they think its ok. this issues could have been put to a vote or talked about at a meeting . plus i also ... more

I am baffled by your approach/attitude larry. You make it sound sound like these guys are not doing a good job. Frankly they got the job last year as they are the only ones trying to better the club anyway even as just members they helped out, did stuff to improve the club because they wanted it to improve. From what i can see they are still the only ones doing stuff for the club to better it. Getting sponsers, showing up hours early to set up for tournaments, mowing some the course with push mo ... more

wht really wht. do we live in cuba. honestly this is bs and wht no one else matters. well this really sucks shame on those people for doing that. so my thoughts dont matter nor do those of others. honestly why would this happen are these people worried that others cant do the job. this makes me sick.


Jacob Hanley    September 8, 2011 at 1:22pm

@larry there wont be any nominations for board members this year...they "self elected" themselves for another year


larry j    September 8, 2011 at 11:59am

This weekend at states Jeffrey H Schwass had his golf bag stolen frm his home.
We will be posting the contents and we what your help in finding the low life that took this. All discs have his name on them.

Also a basket was stolen aprox the same time from his yard.


Patrick Fulkerson    August 6, 2011 at 8:11pm

Who has a Leopard, or a shark in their active bag? Exactly.. not very many. So yes your right chris the box comes with discs generally un-used by the average player.. It does have an Aviar though.. =P


Ken Long    August 6, 2011 at 6:55pm

Chris... starter set is just three discs in a box. Driver mid and putter. Hope this helps.


Chris Smith    August 6, 2011 at 4:06pm

Thanks to Ken and Patrick. This is tough for me because I throw mostly found discs. If I pick one up without a name I throw it for a while and see if I like it. If I do then I leave it in my bag.

@Patrick, I'll be sure to throw a comet in his starter pack.

@Ken, I know it's dumb but I always think of the starter packs as being full of discs that they can't get rid of individually.


Ken Long    August 6, 2011 at 12:56pm

To Chris Smith. Why don't you buy a starter set for the senior. Like at Dunhams. Let him get used to those and then he can take the reins from there. Just a thought.


Patrick Fulkerson    August 6, 2011 at 2:19am

I have helped a lot of people start up. I always make my choices based on how they throw. On average you can never go wrong with a Comet its a straight shooter, and shows you their throwing style naturally. If they are hyzering a lot I then recommend moving to stratus / glide / Meteor.

If they are anhyzering a bit, then move them over to a Rock / Buzz / Orc.

They beauty of disc golf is the many disc and styles of throw. So that's the best I can offer with out witnessing the shooter myself.


Chris Smith    August 6, 2011 at 1:45am

Let's say you were going to pick up three new discs for a friend that has just started playing. He is of retirement age, currently a ball golfer being converted, has only thrown a borrowed archangel and an avair so far, and currently drives equally forehand and backhand (his max distance is currently and respectably just past the big tree on 8). What discs, weights, and plastics would you pick up for his starter set?

If this is not an appropriate topic for this group I can always move it to my wall. Just let me know.

Thanks in advance.


Patrick Fulkerson    July 30, 2011 at 7:16pm

From my understanding these are the bags your getting with the ace race this year.


larry j    July 20, 2011 at 6:24pm
