I guarantee you wont be disappointed with the tourney or the payout. It will be the best tournament yet in Vegas.
I am, however, very disappointed in the way they chose to set the course up this year. It will change every round. I wish they would take my advice and set up the sweet 18 I have out there. Either way it is fair golf I guess.
You definitely dont want to miss this one! I hope you find a dirt cheap flight!
If you are from North Carolina, then I have a group for you.
Want to talk about your fav NC course, talk up your monthly, tell your favorite HomeGrown Tour, Peidmont Random Doubles, Cape Fear Random Doubles event? This is a place for all of the disc golfers from Asheville, Wilmington, Raleigh, Charlotte, and in between to come together and tell their story.
It is all here. All that is missing is you. So join up and get to know one another.
Cute babe eh? (That was not me...) Glad you enjoyed it. We had a lot of rolling on the ground laughs making that video. Send me your address and I will mail you the DVD version. mp 'at' newmex.com
I always love to tell the story of birds for birdies doubles event.. Nothing like hearing a clunck and a tire rolling past us as we were still driving.. lol... good times.. I have no idea how that wheel did not hit anything or anybody as it went all the way down that hill.. We should have won that day.
I made these baskets myself from plumbing, farm and bicycle parts. Cost was about $50 - $70 each.
Here's the basic recipe, you'll have to figure out the details. From bottom to top:
In the ground; 18" - 1 1/2" galvanized pipe set in cement. Use larger diameter pipe for the entire basket if you require more strength. My baskets are not climbed on and don't need the big pipes used on most park or public course models.
40" - 1 1/4" pipe inserted into ground pipe. Cut or shimmed up to get top rim of basket to about 32" above the ground.
2 - 4" or 6" flanges bolted to the bottom and top of the floor of a 15 gallon rubber stock tub (about 26" dia. and 7" - 9" height). They are black and made of a tire like rubber and will last forever ... find them at local farm or ranch supply store.
For each basket you will need the following bicycle parts; One 26" narrow rim like ones found on 10 speed bikes ... slip this just under the rim of the stock tub and screw it in place. This gives the basket rigidity. One 24" bicycle wheel (aluminum works good) with hub and spokes. I got all my bicycle wheels from bike shops ... they usually
have a basement or back roomed filled with them ... I didn't pay for any of them.
Cut another 1 1/4" pipe to attach to the flange on the stock tub (approx. 28") sized so the top of the basket to the top of the chains is about 21". Attach 2 more 4" or 6" flanges to the top and under side of the bicycle wheel hub. Use long 1/4" bolts. Attach wheel and flange assembly to the
pipe comming up from the stock tub. You can then attach a short 6" - 8" 1 1/4" pipe with cap to the top or get creative and decorate them ... I've added 4' red flags to the top of each basket:
Get a whole lot of chain .... more than you think you'll need. Use a heavy zinc plated straight link chain. Try to find a good deal and but in bulk because this will be the largest single cost for your baskets. I have 12 outside chains attached to holes drilled in the outer edge of the rim. Then six more hanging inside the outer 12. Get a 4" and an 8" metal ring to attach the bottom of the chains to.
Pipe Wrench (2 work best for assembly of galvanized pipe and fittings)
Bolt Cutter (for cutting chain)
Crescent Wrench (or set of box wrenches)
Vise Grips (to squeeze cut chain links back in place)
On the score card my "Di" was really close together looking like an "R" and he started calling me Ron. I corrected him about three holes into the round, but it just kinda grew from that. The next day, me Dave, Avery, and Sexton were playing together and someone added the "whip"...I absolutley loved it.
