Matt, Call the Park Dept during the day tomorrow, and drop your $10 off @ the park dept on your way home (if you can make it by 5).

I'm sure they'll be glad to have your $ :wink: LOL

HOLY FRIGGIN COW!!!

16 people, including 3 women, and we had quite the amount of groups going!!!

We had one Birdie tonight - I hope to see that count go up through the course of the league. (-:

I learned - to bunch groups up hole after hole instead of creating a cushion in their staggering - that way people finish in a more cinsistent time frame. (wen can thank a couple of casual groups for breaking that up)

Learned that wind screws up EVERYONE's game - not just my own. :wink:

Oh yeah - and tonight totally ROCKED! Thanks everyone who came out.

On the scorecards, I lost a few email addresses, due to pencil wearing off the paper in my pocket. Leah, and Amanda's are missing from my sheets so far. I'm sure some of you can forward the link, but I KNOW some forum stalker will be perusing & see this anyway! :-P Just sign up!!!

Ok, here are the standings so far... It was so damned windy that NO one played well, period. Good job to Jonny Tessman & Dustin for battling the wind to place where they did. Next week we BETTER have some good conditions! :lol:

I suppose next week I'll post the scores, and then post an average (in parentheses after the names) - and keep track of averages through the week to try to determine a most improved person...

(+7) Jonny Tessman *
(+7) Dustin Borror *
(+8 ) Nick Wendt
(+8 ) John Anderson
(+10) Mike Kieler
(+13) Mike Buntin
(+13) Tyler D
(+14) Russ Tessman
(+15) Matt Melcher
(+19) Amanda Zuck
(+20) Lindsey Wendt
(+20) Joey Tessman
(+23) Wade
(+23) Gary N
(+28 ) Leah Calvert








(+3) He who is not to be named :wink:

The wind was HORRIBLE! I actually saw someone overthrow and bounce their disc off the top of the basket, have it blown backwards and hit the chains and bounce out of the basket.

At least I beat Wade so I have that going for me :wink:

Hey its Dustin. Just wanted to let u know my last name is spelled Borror. Not a big deal at all, just thought I'd tell ya. I had a lot of fun playing with you guys, hopefully it won't be so windy next week! Oh and I'm always wanting to play when I get off of work so if you are ever looking for somebody to play a round with hit me up! (515)321-4357

After the round that night, I worked w/ Wade... Tried convincing him to work w/ just a buzz for a while so he keeps it staight, and up the middle... We'll see how it works out. His kid took VERY well to driving w/o a run-up. He was getting some better power & D.

Dustin - nice to see you join! Your name is corrected, I'm sorry. Do you live close to Norwalk?

Not a problem. I live in Norwalk, about a mile or so away from the course. Do you play many of the other courses around Des Moines?

Just a heads-up...

If it's raining tonight, we ought to delay playing until next Tuesday. If it't not raining @ 6, be there or be square. we'll git 'er done if the storms hold off...

***EDIT***

Weather channel says only a few showers this afternoon. Winds from the South 10-20, so it won't be as bad as last week. 30% chance of rain.

It also says showers early, but I hope this means early evening... Not early day.

I think we'll be fine. GAME ON!

Not me, Jay... I'm looking out for people... J/K.

You know, last week I was asked about rain-outs. I held back & said we'd reschedule, knowing the bushwhackers would think otherwise... That's what makes you crazy - and being a lefty. :twisted:

Thanks for trolling, brother!
