John "Johnny Mac" McClenahan   February 7, 2013 at 5:52am

Excellent information. I barely play the shorts at stony so it's about time I practiced. Thanks!

Jeff Bauman   January 25, 2013 at 6:55pm

Keep in mind it was very windy that day from what I remember not to mention that particular course layout doesnt exist anymore. Using Firefighters scores from the MCCG may be better to judge you scores against others.

John Minicuci   January 25, 2013 at 7:06pm

95% of the time it is windy at Stony, silly :-) !

RJ Lacelle    January 25, 2013 at 9:40pm

I'm new to tourneys and all that.The march mudfest will be my first one and I have no idea what division to place myself in. Any info on how to place myself in a division would be awesome.

Cool. I have some friends on that side of town on here that play a ton. I'll connect you guys. And when I say that throwing distance is irrelevant I don't mean it doesn't matter because someone who can throw 400 feet like your profile says it's going to do much better in am 4 and maybe even am 3, but what is more important is how accurate you are with your distance.

Nick Oliver   January 25, 2013 at 5:33pm

Doug makes some great points.

RJ Lacelle   January 25, 2013 at 5:34pm

Again I'm terrible with modesty. The only disc I for sure know I'm accurate with is the nuke. I'm either still learning the ins and outs of my other ones, or haven't had them for lnog enough. Both my nukes are exactly one year old tomorrow (happy bday to them) so they're just starting to break in and really give me some great stuff.

I don't want to de-rail the Ice Bowl discussion but we are working River Bends this weekend and could use some help moving some of the debris we created while cutting the fairways on the new holes 11, 12, and 24. On Saturday we will be there around noon. I will be at Sunnybrook running Bobis so look for Mat Stivers. On Sunday I will be there around noon. Bring gloves and a good back!

It will remain as such but we are adding in a few lefty holes. The flow was one of the issues on the course and hopefully we are improving that issue as well.

Mr. Retired   December 20, 2012 at 10:54am

Sounds 8055, I miss tournies there

RJ Lacelle   January 22, 2013 at 1:21pm

Will we still be able to throw over the river? and is there a limit to how many people you want there?

Derek Michalak    December 19, 2012 at 7:17pm

MCCG Ice Bowl....I am offering up my own personal $50 bounty to one person that can beat my $540 and is the highest cash contributor at this years Motor City Chain Gangs Ice Bowl event. If I exceed the $540 and win again then I will give that $50 to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen on top of my regular $20 donation. I have won the highest cash donation the last three years starting with my first Ice Bowl in 2010 with $144, then 2011 with $330 and 2012 with $540. This isn't hard to do and any on ... more

Nick Oliver   December 19, 2012 at 4:04pm

Chances are slim that I can make it, but I would like to donate my design services and create a flyer for people to share via email, Facebook, or if someone wants to print them. My business is called Commotion Designs, heres a link if your interested in enlisting my help!

Hey everyone! We here at Knollwood are trying to raise money for merchandise to sell for our cleanup and improvement efforts. Follow the link at the bottom of this message for a full description, a short video presentation, and the opportunity to either donate, or share my message with others.

I have just heard that the director of the City of Kalamazoo Parks department has resigned, so we have a new opportunity to truly change the image of Knollwood.


John Minicuci    December 5, 2012 at 4:01am
