howdy waydowndiscers!!!

it's been a loooong time since i've posted on here, time for an update on all things disc at the spirit of the suwannee music park!

preparations are underway already for the
2010 Juliana Korver Presents: La Vie en Rose

This event promises to be even more fun than the inaugural year. The 2010 tournament website is up:

We will be working very hard to bring the course from good to great. We are actively seeking volunteers to help with the work and support the women of disc golf. Our female competitors deserve to be treated to an outstanding event and we are counting on the men of Florida to step up and demonstrate their commitment to bettering the sport.

For information on how you can help, please see:

We are also in need of tournament sponsorship, whether it be cash or merchandise. Any degree of support, however small will be greatly appreciated. Please email our Tournament Director, Shawn Sinclair (shawn@peytondesigns.com), to express your interest in sponsoring the event:

Also, on the near horizon:

The Bear Creek Music Festival is coming up is less than two weeks. This festival is sweet and we'll be having a doubles tournament that Saturday morning at 10am, the winning team members will each receive two passes for the 2011 Bear Creek Music Festival. Drop me an email (mritner@knights.ucf.edu) if you have any questions about the doubles tournament or anything else.

Thanks to you all for brininging your spirit to the club!!!

I'd like to send out huge thanks to all who competed and helped with the inaugural La Vie en Rose!

I'd like to put together a nice blog post with a lot of photos and am waiting to see pictures from Matt Peckham and anyone else who'd like to have some included. We'll also be putting together an article for the new magazine. If you'd like to make a submission, please email: mritner@yahoo.com compressed photos and I'll bounce back with requests for full sized images.

Magnolia DGC Update
December 26th, 2008

I got back from spending a week in Live Oak on the 23rd and I needed the whole 24 hours to get the dirt and stink off me before spending the holiday with my family.

First, the bad news, the camera that I brought bit the dust, so I’ve returned without any photos.
I’m hoping that anyone who’s up there soon will take some pictures and email me. Please, please, please. mritner@yahoo.com

Now, the good news: we got a ton of good work done while we were there. Many, many, many annoying vines were ripped down by hand and tractor. Many routes were opened, trimmed, widened, and just plain made more playable and fair. Lots and lots of debris was cleared.

Huge thanks to Deborah for setting me up with a cabin for the week. The nighly shower and cable news fix was great. Had the pleasure of playing a round with Mark and Heather of the park staff and a few of their friends. It’s great to see that that many on the park staff have gotten the disc golf bug.

Also enjoyed a visit from Vanessa Chambers, her husband Coleman and their two sons (I’m sorry I forgot your names guys, but I won’t forgot some of those sick shots you threw.) They were on an annual family disc golf trip to Florida on which they compete with handicaps for family bragging rights. Hope to get the chance to play again in December ‘09!

Got a lot of assistance from and enjoyed playing with Jeff Liddell, “Roller” Bob Theis, and Paulie Bagwell. Those “old” guys can put a lot of the younger crowd to shame in terms of their dedication and efforts toward bettering the sport.

The course details:
Hole 1: Widened the “green” area slightly on the left side of the basket.

Hole 2: Opened and cleaned a tighter “short cut” route to the left of the main right-to-left route from the blue tee. Opened additional lanes to the basket on the approach shot. There are now lots of options coming in to that “green”.

Hole 6: Moved the red tee up from 440 ft. to 320 ft. at the corner of the dogleg. Opened and cleaned the corner of the dogleg making it a lot easier to make the bend. Took down a couple more big trees in the fairway and removed a lot of debris from the fairway.

Hole 7: Removed a lot of debris to the right of the basket.

Hole 8: Cleaned the left side of the fairway off the blue tee. Took out three big trees from the middle of the fairway just past the red tee. Took out several trees down the left side of the fairway. Removed several huge vines. Removed a lot of debris from the fairway.

Hole 11: Marked the OB sinkhole on the right with orange-painted logs and white string. The OB line is at the high water mark to make the course play the same level of difficulty regardless of water level. Removed two smaller “pimp” trees from the fairway. Took out two trees right on the corner of the dogleg to make it possible for a “good” drive to set up a good birdie chance and not just an oustanding drive.

Hole 12: Took out a couple smaller trees in the fairway that looks out of place and openend up a clean line for a second shot down the left side of the fairway. The second shot looks a lot better and lines are more evident. Moved the short basket position to about 40 ft. past the existing long position.

Hole 13: Cleared out a big area to the right of the long basket position and re-located the short position there. The shot to the new location is either dead straight and tight or a right-to-left-to-right “S” shot. (dang, lefty hole!)

Hole 18: Cleared out a lot of trees and brush on the second shot. The second shot will still be tight, but the WTF factor has been eliminated. Marked the sink hole OB with orange-painted logs and white string.

Hey Denny, Love the pic with the monster alligator. I do not have to ask WHO got the disc. SWEET.

Ladies: Hopin' many of you register for Juliana's February event!

Fella's: We'll be needing help in December with fine-trimming of the course and also during tournament weekend, if you're inclined. Also, if you're too far away to make it y'all could take up a collection and sponsor one or more of your local gals to make the trip and represent your club.

Stay tuned for updates!
