A tree limb fell and hit the basket section on #17, breaking the collar welds. The top section is OK. I'll put the spare in today. I guess this means 2 spares isn't enough. There can be more where that came from.

Where is the other spare located at?
Did you have to use it somewhere else?

Oh, it sounded like you used it because "two spares wasn't enough."
As we talked of all the possible baskets to get hit, this is not one we thought would get nailed.
Let's hope it's the only one for a long while. :wink:

You never miss an opening do you? :lol:

You should try to attend the grand opening of the course in Hiawatha this weekend.
It sounds like your kind of course, NO TREES! :)

Hey, by the way, you said you were going to write your review after the tournament but I haven't seen it yet.
Did you not make it over that day?
We did miss your bacon and eggs! :lol:

no, I usually don't miss much. I liked Urbana, and also enjoy trees as obstacles, but I like them better when there's fair lines to throw. Not saying that there are not fair lines there, probably more that I just couldn't seem to locate them when I threw.

I enjoyed the dubs tourney, but I can't even imagine playing singles competitively on that long setup---what a grind that could be. To see the courses I really like to play, all you have to do is come to Des Moines.

That being said, I can't say anything but positive things regarding your course, and how much work you guys have put into it. Wildcat Bluff and you fellows that put all that blood, sweat, & tears into that land is truly a tribute to those that are passionate about this great sport. Can't wait to play it again.....with a crutch (partner). :lol:

Thanks for the kind words.
The thing with Wildcat Bluff is the more you play it, the wider the lines are.
You become more comfortable throwing the lines and have established discs for each.
So it does get easier, especially for the locals!

I agree with you on the Des Moines courses.
I've played and enjoyed them all.
I wish we had that many quality courses in such a small travel area around here. (We are getting closer though!)
You guys have put a lot of sweat equity into the disc golf scene over there and it shows.

2 or 3 trees cut yesterday=progress. I think I weed whacked about 500 baby ones today too. I finished 10 thru 15. Sure does give the fairways a more golf course like feel. :D

Thanks to Steve and Bro Bob for building the terraces all the way down the gulley on #17 fairway.
A lot of work went into that and I hope it will slow down the erosion to a snails pace.
I also hope the campers will not pull them out and use them for firewood :roll: :lol:

#17 now has a tee pad to match the rest of the hole.
The new "launch" pad is now 12' long with a retaining wall installed in the front for those of you who follow through an extra step.
The back has a small retaining wall between the end of the pad and the bench.
Thanks to Paul who "found" the material to do this and for his help installing it. As always, thanks to Crager for the four wheeler to haul those heavy SOB's up there.
Come check out the new "Taj Mahal" this weekend at the tourney.
