    Morningstar was the first 18 hole basket course that I ever played. It was an incredible honor for me to do the re-design of that course. YAY. I discovered disc golf and ultimate in Knoxville in 1977.

    Heard.

    My feel is that most of the posters in that thread are against a tougher-putting basket (which I think makes sense, IF there's a need for greater score seperation in general,) and are saying that courses need to start being designed the way you've been designing them for at least a decade. The unimaginative haters will always scorn those ahead of their time. Like Michaelangelo. Plus you're one of the few in the DG community who can't really pass through here anonymously. The rest of them (us) are just internet smart/strong/talented, hiding behind an avatar.

    Put another way: "(You've) got vision, the rest of the world wears bi-focals." Paul Newman as Butch Cassidy.

    Geez, I'm gonna keep hassling you:

    Somebody mentioned that you designed Morningstar in Knoxville. Did you do the orig layout, and/or the new layout that's in the last year or so? Haha, you need your own "sticky" thread like MJ, with a banner and everything!

    Hey, Stan

    I've met you maybe once or twice on the course, talked devious design with you. Name's Chad.

    Anywho, there's a thread on here right now titled "Top Pro vs. Ave. Joe Skill level" or such. The thread has morphed into a debate about how to create better seperation among the top pros. McBeth is on there some, talking about tightening up the baskets. A bunch of guys are saying "we need to have courses designed better," and go on to describe what that would look like....and it sounds basically like every one of your designs. If you're into nerding out on here, you might want to hop on there. You're philosophy on design, and the example of your courses, would add a lot to the disc-ussion there. (See what I did there?)

    So, just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work of you and your proteges in CDGC. Reading that thread makes me realize how blessed I am to be learning this great game here in Crowntown.
