Hey Darren, Thank for the invite!
About that Shasta tag.... You did say that you were with Adam when he found it?
JD says we need to get it back any lost tags if that is the case. Let me know if you are sure it was a lost tag. The one he found was a valid tag made to replace a previouslt lost one.
I heard that some people did some work up there. You should have posted something on the CDGC page here on this website (stories/pix/etc). I've also heard some interesting remarks about it. I only go up there for the CDGC Weeklies nowadays, and I'll probably not be able to get up there until next month, so I hope all your hard work does not wash away!
Yup, love the Magnet. I'm personally not a fan of any putter in candy plastic or candy blends. Candy is great for drivers and mids but is too slippery for putters. If I'm throwing hard then I grip tightly so candy is fine. But a putter is thrown softly so gripped lightly and tackiness is vital. I don't even like really hard D plastic since it is too slippery.
I also play in 4 seasons so rain, snow and ice are issues. I try to avoid having a disc in the bag which is weather dependent. I even avoid white discs since they would come out in snowy conditions. But everyone has different preferences and some players love candy putters since they take forever to break in.
Hey darren I. 5 North take the 299,44 exit. Heading towards turtle bay. I am assuming that you know redding some bit . if not you are heading west. Once you are past the bridge it will split then it will turn right on pine then left on Eureka wy.You dont have to worry too much here because it is still 299. Just stay in the right hand lane. When you get to market street take a right . You are on the right path if you see a weinersnitsel (sp?)hot dog place. Cross the bridge and you will see the park on your left . Take a left at the light there follow it down to lake redding golf course . It will be on your right. ---There is another way ,yet longer. Take the exit at the water slides then head west up the hill. At the light at the top of the hill turn left this will take you down the hill ,a big hill. Follow this road which is N.Market st.but instead of crossing the bridge at the park you will take a right into the park follow it down to lake redding golf course. Hope this helps.If not you can check MapQuest if still unsure. That is how I found the street names for you. I know how to get there I just didn't know the names. See you there on the 9th. Until then Peace.
Basically, the difference is how much prize money will be paid out, and the quality of players in attendance (often connected). It is not something you need to worry about. It's a GREAT tourney, so enjoy yourself!
