Letter to P&R

kineticbagel <kineticbagel@...>
 

Hi all,
At the last meeting Billy suggested writing letters to Corvallis P&R to thank them for their support. Specifically to counter the letter sent by another member of the club. The other member (and the city councilman that sent it on his behalf) didn't bother to speak to anyone at P&R or listen to the multiple club members who suggested he has it all wrong.
If you don't want to send a letter, no problem, but if you believe that P&R has been derelict in it's duty, then please go talk to them as a concerned citizen.
They respond to all of our requests and have been great partners.
The "other letter" has left a bad taste in the mouth of the head of P&R, and a little sugar will go a long way.
Here is a link;

Birdies for all,

Hello WDGCers!

Eric beat me to making a post about the Hope Open on here! Sorry I'm so late!

If you would like to register online you can register at: http://4discgolf.com/

I have not used Yahoo groups enough to know how to attach a file, so if you would like to snail mail a registration form you can email me for the flyer: shavonne.schu@gmail.com


I'm very excited about another terrific Hope Open and hope to see many of you there! If you can't be there but still want to be involved, don't forget about the option of dedicated an Honor Sign for $25.

In case you don't know the event is October 27th at Willamette Park.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

First, however, I'll need a sponsor willing to barter for:

1 An essentially new $300+ value LTD 63HAWK snowboard (perhaps with some

2. Either a Canon Pixma iP4300 printer or HP Deskjet 960C printer.

3. A Matsunichi Photoblitz Digital Picture Frame that mounts on your wall
and scrolls through digital photos you've taken or acquired. Way freaking
cool and selling for $90 new on Amazon.

I'm deadly serious about offering these up or, maybe some of my latest
homebrew 22 ouncers. Whatever works--discs I don't throw.

I need the competitive practice if I'm going to win my third World
Championship. Then I'd be a Back-to-Back and End-to-End Senior Three-Time
Grandmaster World Champion. (Remember now, I'm *only* doing this for the
first club that supports an Extreme Makeover of the Willamette Disc Golf
Course.

My challenge to the club.

No, no. This is serious. Deadly serious.

Another disc golf article in the local mid-valley newspapers:

http://democratherald.com/oregon-outdoors/it-s-a-community/article_8937846c-14ba-11e2-815d-001a4bcf887a.html

OSU club member Connor Smith and our own Nate Sexton are quoted in
the article. Nothing terribly new, but FYI.

Thanks. No reasonable offer refused.

Re: Hole 1 at Willamette

Greg Johnson
 

Ok for temporary position for a tournament set up but not with a full course.
There was a pin placement for the old hole 2.  Did that get yanked?

Great points Doug, making #1 harder will increase the already regular backups that you have. It would also increase the chance of someone getting hit with a disc with groups throwing/approaching while there is still a group ahead finishing the hole or walking back down the fairway to the walkout.

Nice playing with a machete takes a few of us back to the early days at Willamette.
 
Looking forward to playing it but not mud pit teeboxes.

Hi folks,

I just reviewed the new Wilder DGC on DGCR:

http://www.dgcoursereview.com/reviews.php?id=5797&mode=rev

Bring spotters, boots, and any plastic you won't mind losing....


Anyone play Wilder and find my disc yesterday (10/11)?

evenkeel418 <evenkeel418@...>
 

Someone called me while my phone was off at work to tell me they found my disc at Wilder (could be one of five I've lost there). They said they were "going back to Corvallis", so there always a chance there a group member. They did not leave a number.

The last four digits of my number is 2203. Call me back, I'm hoping you have my newer teebird....

Re: Hole 1 at Willamette

kineticbagel <kineticbagel@...>
 

Doug,
Your concern about a tough(er)first hole is mine as well. I don't warm up much, and usually have to shake the tingle out of my arm. But it would be a par 4, so there is the extra stroke. The walkout is problematic, as the tee for 2 (and two for tea?) is some distance back the other way. Even if we walk out to the road, we'd have to walk backwards down the 2nd fairway....we could reconfigure the whole thing!?!
This is why we're discussing the issue. It's not set in stone.
Hugs,
G


Re: Hole 1 at Willamette

Doug Ulfers
 

I have a little bit of a concern about having the first hole on the course being one that creates an immediate back up of golfers waiting to get started...A backwards walkout would make it even a little slower..For those of us that don't always take the time to warm up, a difficult first hole,( which it already is for old skinny guys), is kinda demoralizing!
Doug Ulfers
P.S. I'm a little reluctant to post any thing on this website for fear of being ridiculed by profane, crazy, cyber-bullies.. (be nice, I'm sensitive)

I agree. Every course should have its own 'character.' Rather than
trying to make every course as similar as possible to each other, we
should focus on maintaining the qualities of each course (CAREFULLY
tweaking them to allow as much variety as possible, within certain
bounds), and turn our creative energies on a new course.

You make a great point Mike. My feeling is that we should not try to make Willamette another Adair, i.e, lengthen every hole. Willy is the local begginer/intermediate course and fills that niche nicely.
If the club would like to change that focus, we can discuss that.
Hole one is the only change that significantly lengthens the course. It would also end up being a par 4...you get an extra stroke!
