"drive on" i like it! so many meanings in just those 2 words.
thanks for sharing your adventures with me. sounds like there were highs and lows. but an epic trip overall.
do you blog? you should copy/paste that into your blog, to share with all the friends who visit your page.
things are great in groton. thanks for checking in. it was really nice to see mel, eric, boz, kipper, and crew in bowling green. not sure where my next big trip will take me. made my first trip to vermont a couple weekends ago. what a beautiful state. green and mountainous.
i have several local tournaments coming up. it will be nice to see everyone back on the courses again, as a group. good to have you back on the internet. see you around!!!!
tall timbre coarse .... I know your discfunctional, but you need to know that WOOD'S TAll TIMBER LAKE RESORT will be ready for play (from what I heard from Bill Griffith) June 1, 2008. Ask bill about it at the Ice Bowl, i'm sure he'll be more than happy to talk about it and he knows the most as it's his baby.
Mark, Bill and I got our PHILL in PHILLY 2day from the TALL TIMBERS LAKE RESORT. Bill asked me not to say to much, so I'll wait for him to tell you on ALL the juicy details, but as to what Canton was born from a seed from Medina, and Massillon as from Canton, and Dover from Wooster and Massillon, New Philadelphia was given to us from the DISC GODS. I've never seen a layout of a course (and i'm sure you can say that about most courses), but I never seen a layout in which each 9 hole sections uses the basic rules of 3's (righty, lefty and straight) both holes 1 and 10 start inches away from the club house (which you could hold a first class wedding reception inside) and holes 9 and 18 end at the same point with distance and elevation. And in addition have a kiddie par 3- 9 hole disc golf course that uses the same holes as a par 3 ball golf course and that also includes a top notch miniture putt putt course, a swimming beach next to a beautifull pristine lake and air conditioned cabins and primitive campsites all in one location. There's a lot more to be said, but not at this forum at this time, but the DOVER course is the step child to this course. And we only walked the 1/2 of the park and played only 1/2 of the holes (on jan.5th and not august 5th), they have a bath house for cleaning up and from what I hear it's the hottest place for the Tuscarwaras and surrounding counties hot spot in the warmer months. All this for a $5.00 entry fee (camping, food and beverage not included, alcohol is permitted). I can't wait for the August 9-10th, for the Tall Timbers/Dover tournament.
John, I oh understand about not being able to attend the Wooster IB. I wish I lived closer to Hungtington as I usually do well at Rotary Park. I wish everyone could post their respective Ice Bowls a couple months ahead of time so others could attend some of the tournaments that are further away from one's home course.
The Dover project is going to take time, but Mark Hay lives in the area now instead of Canton area so I expect that Dover will be represented well in their early life stages with Mark and Greg Marsh and his son Ryker doing their respective thang. Bill Griffith is talking with a private campground on hillyier land than Dover's in a neighboring community of Dover, and from what I hear sounds like a good thing there as well.
Whatever it takes to get more courses in the ground I'm hip to and if I can help you in anyway let me know and we'll see what I can do for you.
Yeah, I'd hold off on those concrete tees up there too....except for the red tees maybe. I'm all for those red tees the way they are because it'll encourage more new players to keep coming back & isn't as discouraging for them had there been only two set of tees there, the whites & blues. I know exactly where those baskets are that had problems with residents living next to the park. Tough but they don't understand that most of the players from that area are relatively new to the game or novices. Majority of the players being right-handed didnt help either, so I could see why a RHBH throw would go into their backyards. They could have that part of the course flow in a counter-clockwise direction to minimize stray discs, but I doubt they'd be happy residents either way.
I'd love to see more courses around here in WV. Was thinking about trying to send some kind of e-mail proposals to the state's park systems or several parks at least & see what they think about it. By the way, I won't be coming up to Wooster for the Ice Bowl, would love to play up there again but it's on the same weekend as the Ice Bowl in Huntington WV.
