Storm Damage

Postby Budhyzer 17696 » Thu Jul 28, 2011 9:18 am

I'll be up Crager, unless I have too much time on my hands and I'm sitting on my ass bashing people I don't even know on the internet just because I can and think I'm cool shit. :lol:

Of course, I would never do something like that because I care for my fellow human beings.

Holy sh!t you guys are animals! I can't believe how much you got done on 17. It's looking great with that arch obstacle.

What is the plan for the tons and tons of debris being moved from fairways to the sides? Lot of burning this fall/winter?

Don't know yet, have to talk to the ranger about that.
The locals would not like us to burn any brush because it reduces habitat and it isn't natural.
When we took the chipper up there a couple years ago there was a few people not too happy with that.
If anything we will have to drag it farther from the fairway.
It all takes time , there is so much more clean up to do.
All we can do is 1 hole at a time and when you think a hole is pretty much done there is something more that needs attention.
We have been playing all the holes except #18, spotters are needed on #16 and #17 otherwise not too bad.

The jury is still out on the arch obstacle although the judge has spoken :lol: . I've heard it will stay at least until the tournament is over but I'd like to see what other people have to say about it. Personally, i don't want anything impeding my drive down the middle of a fairway. (If I throw one down the middle :lol: )
I know it's hard to judge without throwing a drive. Anyone else want to chime in?

As cool as it looks, i agree with Jay. That hole is tough enough without having to go over/under that tree.

Agree. I wouldn't mind playing it once like that, but the idea of having a crisp rip down the gut on that hole (which is super rewarding when you get it) get blown up by that tree would make me batty.

Wait til Friday. I bet the view down 17 is different. That arch is directly even with the height of the teepad and there is no way to make a throw underneath it go anywhere and anything over will be too high to work through the trees. I am all about obstacles but the arch takes away the fairway and makes it janky. It would be different if it were 10 feet higher or 5 feet lower. I can definately make it lower.

i love the look of it, but its at a bad height looks like i say you could raise it on the left end and support with sumthen to raise it higher whatever you guys do will be good with me

18 to the A pin is done. We have to talk about the arch tree. I just would like to force everyone to throw by it once in a tournament format. If we cut all the fallen tree's out then where's the fun? One year and then it's gone! I'll even let you cut it down Doug. :P

I won't cut it down but it makes for poke and hope golf. Anyone out there tomorrow?

Hugging the left side for a big turnover might be poke and hope. But who says the preferred shot has to be the same as before?

There's a fair line on the right or middle, you can just rip your forehand (or LHBH) low along the right side or through the middle, where the window under the arch is wide open.

Isn't disc golf supposed to be challenging? :lol:
