We had league today. It was just the four of us and Emily. Since the tees were buried we played improvised tees. It was about 20 degrees with crusty snow. Diana and I beat the girls, -3 to -1 for nine holes. Everyone was fine with picking up after nine.
After prayer at Lyle's I rinsed off trophy discs and Kelsey took pics. I thought I'd show you the basement where I spend so much time.
This picture shows the basic set up down there. The little snack tubs have different colors of dye mix in them. You can see RIT bottles. When I'm doing spin dye I put the wheel inside the Rasin Bran box there and cover the open side. That's a really nice wheel. Heavy. Aluminum. The cupboard I'm reaching into can hold 12 discs inside and three on top. The cupboard to its left can hold another 17 with four on top. There are more cupboards to the left of that. The drop lights eat light bulbs.
My friend Steve made these open shelves for me. They hold 13 or 14 discs. The shelves slide right out which is helpful sometimes. It's cold in the basement so I'm wearing a hat. I turned it inside out so as not to offend Ohio fans. I'm also wearing the Orval Kent shirt Jon gave me. It is waterproof and does not take dye.
Just to the right of the dye shelves is the rinsing tub. Steve did the plumbing on this. The tub used to be on the other side of the laundry. Instead of a faucet head it has this nice long plastic hose. The whole set up down here was designed for dying discs, but built with discarded kitchen cabinets, old kitchen counter tops and a used tub. Very functional, cheap and ugly.
After you rinse the dye you have to peel off the glue and vinyl masks. This is tedious. If you soak the glue it gets really soft. If you don't soak the glue, expect unnecessary pain.
Kelsey peeled this disc and saved all the masking bits. You can see an A and a 4.
This is your trophy if you play Pro Master. All the trophies for this tournament have this design on them. This is my least favorite of the four designs we're using.
Diana and Kiralyn like it.
No one likes this one. I don't know why we're using it.
Well, now you might feel like you spent the evening with me rinsing trophy discs and peeling off masking bits. The feeling is not mutual.
