Bayside would work, but so would mission bay park near the 5. The lighting may be better there and it would be a different place. Another is Waller Montgomery Field park. They have a lot of ball fields there and the light is pretty good.

It will be overcast tomorrow night and there will not be much of a moon if any. Disc lights will be required.

How about Bayside?

Any suggestions for a round of rouge night golf?

Anyone not afraid of the dark?

Night golf works for me. Somewhere relatively open so no one looses an eye.

I'm glad you guys stayed to play the night round with us. I had so much fun! We definitely should create a rogue course for some alternate night golf. Some time very soon.

I received a lot of positive feedback regarding our January 1st golf at Mission Bay. Many of the participants enjoyed the fact that they got to choose the pad and hole. I hope to do this again soon.

Well I did it again...I went and had fun yesterday, last night to be more exact. We played a round of night golf using the LED's on our champion plastic. We had a blast, no one on Morley at all by the 5th hole.

Trey's arm is a scary during the daytime, at night it was a joy to see his discs gliding through the night air. The LED's left tracers easily visible for hundreds of feet. I was surprised that the color of this disc made such a difference when used in conjunction with the LED.

I got off a few good throws, but my first birdie did not happen until hole 8. It was a little frustrating to hit a branch or a tree that you could not see. Next time I will take my LED flashlight to assist with the putting.

The few times that we put the light stick on the basket it was of tremendous help. Justin said that there is someone making christmas lights powered by a AA battery pack...I have to wonder how much 19 of those would cost. The ability to see the basket from the pad is so necessary for me to line up my shot that I would consider buying a few and place them at night with a bike perhaps (reduce the walking time).

It took us about two hours to finish the round, all things considered that was not bad, we did not have to wait on anyone and we got to take some fun shots. I played with three discs, my orc, coyote, and rhyno. Each of these are champion plastic, but I soon learned that the opaque blue is not a good color for night golf. I have augmented my bag with some other champion plastic since, so that "next time" I can use a wider variety of discs that will illuminate properly with the LED.

Fun night I look forward to doing it again. Perhaps we can do this in a Rogue setting in the future.

that was SOOOOO much fun yesterday. We played from 7 in the morning to 2:30 when people started showing up. It wasn't masses of people and could have gone to different area's of the park and continued to play, but we were hungry. This was AWESOME!!!! We hould find more parks and make a weekly rotation. My basket is available and I'm available to help out in anyway. Thanks for creating this club Doc!!!

We had a blast yesterday!

Played Mission Bay on an Ad-Hoc basis allowing all to choose pads and pins. We rotated the selection so everyone had multiple chances to pick a shot. Some of them worked out great, one person had no concept, but it worked out okay.

We started a bit later than I had expected, I arrived at 6:40 with no one there but the ducks and the fog. Justin arrived about 10 minutes later, and shortly thereafter we had a good group of 5 people to get started.

The first pin Justin placed we could not even see it due to the fog. The conversation went pretty much like, see that little tree there? Well the pin in beyond that near the big tree (which looked like dark shadows due to the fog).

We threw and I think we had 3 boogies because no one really knew where the pin was located.

I was wet and cold to start with (44 was the temp I saw) but it soon warmed up nicely and I believe everyone had a blast. The bonus was we were able to play many more holes playing safari than we ever could have at the over used Morely Field, and we did not have a bunch of idiots to deal with.

Of course we had our version of the village idiot, would could not visualize a line to his suggested pin placements, but it was his first time not being on a defined course (I think he may have forgot his medication though).

I think the biggest bonus was the girls to be honest, Kayleen often had the CTP and Latoya showed up in time for doubles (who I must say is cute as a button, I can say that when girls are half my age).

All told, I do not know why we suffer here with only one real disc golf course, but the safari option definitely played well on the 1st of January and I expect the gang to get together again soon in other venues and have some more fun.

Anyone up for an alternate course on Sunday?!?

Harry Griffen park located just off of the 8 near the 125 would be a blast.

Boyd is the only response I have so far...need at least 2 others to make this happen.
