golf in the AM on saturday and my birthday party on saturday . . . undecided about sunday but I should get out and play somewhere!!! I just sent you a facebook invite, if you want to stop by send me a message and Ill get you directions and address. We will be starting around 3 with brats burgers, hot dogs and chicken breasts and all the beverages you can handle. Bring something to share with everyone and you will be allowed in!
Hey man, sorry I had to leave right away after we finished yesterday. I figured you would have caught up to us, because we were playing doubles and kinda slow. Anyways, I will be in town for another 5 days if you want to head out and play a round in the next few days let me know. I have to get some Christmas shopping done but I would play at least 1 round every day . . . especially since I stayed home today to get all of my work done. Let me know.
The golf course part of the dretzka course will not go in until the golf course shuts down so I am sure they never give a date on that until it happens because the county has to make money on the golf before they allow the disc golf to open.
P.S. Parkside has 11 of the 12 baskets in now and I am planning on hitting it this weekend. I am also going to Silver Lake with Terry to walk a course he is designing right now at Fox River park I think it is called. I played the older 9 holes this spring, but I think there are 18 more awesome holes going in into a seperate section of the course. It is darn near IL but if I ever hit up parkside I wouldnt mind a further drive south to hit this course if it lives up to what Terry is saying about it. I am hoping to get some insight from Terry about design/installation and hopefully I can make a good connection and possibly be his go to guy for course installation someday. I also love the design process and think i could add some valuable input, so step #1 of my master plan is in effect. I will let you know how it goes and let you know what the course is like after we go down there sometime next week.
I was there today and the original 18 is still setup, but the 9 baskets on the east side of the road (the summer alternate 9) have been removed and were being put in. I saw Mark dropping off some of the teemats on some of the holes. It looks like at the very least 1-5 were in, but I did not see 6, 7, 8, 9 but I didnt look that closely either because I wasnt planning on playing it.
Ive already analyzed it and I would have to hit some majorly popular courses to hit diamond status. There are 5 other people ahead of me. I am not sure if I am ahead of you right now or Olorin but a week ago we were all within just a few votes right around 500.
The leader had 893 votes already and is pretty well travelled. Thevalkyrie Kid.
There are also these #'s Innovadude 649, ericj 683, dgtourist 651, donovan 676.
I do not think it is gonna happen.
Nice to hear about baraboo . . . I played that on my way to MN this summer. I enjoyed it but those rubber pads had some serious issues! Also i had heard about whitewater and will have to hit that up sometime next year to see the new holes.
Parkside is open all winter I believe. I might make a weekly trip down there to play all of them each day. I will go to Dretzka everyday I am here that isnt horribly nasty.
