IIRC, the winners got Innova bags & discs last year. 2nd place scored Gateway bags.

They usually do a raffle and give away other stuff as well. One year I got the Innova DX starter set and gave it to my nephew. Just could not find a place in my bag for a 150 shark :|

notroman
09-01-2011, 01:26 AM
There is a risk/reward type gap on hole 5 that I always go for (but don't always make). If you look up and to the right of the "landing zone" there is a hole in the trees and you're staring at the fairway about a third of the way up hill. If you can get a drive in there, it makes it much easier to get up to the basket. It's a little tougher to place than the intended route, but still fun to throw. Just be careful not to go too deep otherwise you'll just be pitching back into the fairway like you would if you were to go deep of the intended landing zone.

notroman
09-01-2011, 01:30 AM

I think you'll like Kaposia in the Twin Cities a lot, then. It reminded me a lot of Mt. Airy but it's more technical. I guess the flavor would be more like a Mt. Airy/Hornets Nest hybrid with a lot of elevation mixed in on a few holes. Just grab the map/score card when you pay so you know where the holes are. It's pretty easy to follow for the most part, but there are a few places where you can get lost or go in the wrong direction if you've never been (especially after hole 17, which is where they currently redesigned/added holes).

In dave242's review of idlewild, he writes

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of GREAT shots and great spots on the course, but there were waaaaay too many "doinky" holes. What I mean by that is multi-throw holes where you float a putter 100-200' to a landing zone and then do it again and again to get to a par 4 or 5.

Which I can understand. Probably the only knock on the course that I would agree with. Still fantastic in my book.

The only reason I've ever been to Idlewild and oher Cinci/Dayton area courses is because I hit them up on my way down to Charlotte. It makes for a relaxing trip. Just leave early in the morning, get to Cinci by noon or 1, play some disc, sleep at a hotel, play more disc the next day and continue on to Charlotte. It's possible to do it all in one day as well, but you'll have to leave around 5am and you will only have time to play about one round at Idlewild.

Match play means you just count how many holes you win instead of strokes. Say you're playing 18 holes against AirMcNair. You take a 3 on hole 1, he gets a deuce. He wins hole 1. You keep going like this until it is clear that the other person is going to win. If after 12 holes he won 2 holes and you just won your 10th, the game is basically over. Even if he aces, it doesn't matter. He can only win a maximum of 6 more holes and that's not enough to beat your 10.

This fella named Stevie (friend of Tallpaul) is a spin putter that both I and GDBP have played with. His drives are good but his putting is pretty insane... He's one of the best putters if played with/seen. Matrix is also another spin putter that's pretty deadly accurate. Obviously everybody has good days and bad ones but when these guys are on, watch out.

I'm not totally sure that last part is fair. The best spin putters I know/have played with are Dana V. and Al H., they both spin putt, but they jump as well. It's ridiculous though, they expect to make everything within 50'

edit: then again, it would be sick to see someone putt in a 60' with no jump.

So I found out today that the OPEN players that pre-reg before the 23rd for the CCC will get the Shirt offer too... that's better than a kick to the head.

Go here to pre-reg via paypal or download a registration form to mail in... http://2011ccc.wordpress.com/

Don't forget that if you play both the CCC and the BNdisc Open - you are eligible for even more prizes... including $100 Cash for the best combined score among the OPENs

I remember you were ;) I was going to play that as well, but my old time doubles partner asked me to play Ottawa with him so I couldn't turn him down. It's been a while since we played doubles together. I ALMOST considered playing Channy then going to Ottawa, but that would be cutting it too close ;) I'll probably play Highland Park in the morning before heading to Ottawa.

Just got back from the classic, I'm happy with how I shot especially since I only got a couple hours of sleep. Went -6 both rounds from the shorts and took 2nd by a stroke. I was pretty disappointed in the payouts though, seemed like a really limited selection of speed 12+ drivers and a bunch of xl shirts, and the amount paid out was low.

Was there a big turnout? I can see how they are trying to get rid of all their inventory at the end of the season, that still sucks.

It wasn't even leftovers, I would have understood that. It was all stuff custom stamped for this weekend's event. They had a good selection of other stuff, but tourney payout was only from the tourney stamped stuff, and that was almost exclusively archons, vulcans, bosses, destroyers and apes. :rolleyes:

Ah, gotcha. That makes sense then. It's got to be the latest and greatest, or nobody will buy the stuff, right? :|

I'm surprised it wasn't just all bosses or all apes.

Nice shootin', Mashy! :hfive:

Plastic blends change pretty often, just a different batch of raw materials.

Also, if the top looks weird on that destroyer it might actually be a teedevil or "destrulcan", a bunch of newer destroyers were run with that weird Vulcan top.
