J-Town Ice Bowl / Re: Pounds of Food
« on: February 10, 2011, 09:50:14 PM »
The Mission said we had 231 lbs. of food. If the salt is added, as some do, it's 301 lbs. The park gave me 20 lbs. & I gave 50 lbs.
Rules say that salt counts!

J-Town Ice Bowl / Re: 2011 J-Town Second Annual Ice Bowl

What a great time! Thank You so much for the smiles and laughs. So awesome to see how disc golfers can come together to help so many in need and have so much fun doing it!         Had a great card playing with Tom and Colleen both rounds.         If $1 is worth $6 in food for the food pantry, that's $30,000 in food! Pretty safe to say the shelves have been restocked. Great job everyone!


J-Town Ice Bowl / Re: Tees for Ice Bowl

Today was an unbelievable good day. I was to meet Shawn Harmon at noon. He showed up with his brother Scott (donated $50.00 to our fundraiser} along with Brad Beverley.  I came back to the parking lot to exchange my shovel for a blower. I see Al Hermosillo & Chris Brenholtz, they had to travel some distance, & then Mike pulls up.  They started on #18 & worked their way to #15. In the middle of all this Dave Kociuba shows up. We stopped on #12 thinking the other crew would go to #13. Not so & Jacob's car is in the lot. He does #13 & & #14. That lifted my spirits to a level I haven't had in a while. Now it's not over, Dean Bingham came out with a snow blower & he with a small help from me, removed the snow from the pavilion. Just super!!!
You guys are the greatest!!!
Shawn was shoveling so hard he broke his shovel.Brad didn't mind, he used his shovel.
Thanks Fellas, I don't know if I could count on me like I thought. To be sure I'd give the effort.
Everyone does a little part. What a great team! Just like Fox Valley when it comes to helping the less fortunate! Just sit and think for a minute what all of you are doing for free or paying to do. UNREAL! Be proud because the Morning Star Mission loves all of you. Such a good story! Your helping so many.

J-Town Ice Bowl / Re: Allowing ribbons on your discs at J-Town Ice Bowl
« on: February 02, 2011, 04:49:19 AM »
I contacted the PDGA, and they are allowing the players to use ribbons on their discs to make it easier to find them in the snow.  This is just for the J-Town Ice Bowl.
Colored string works best.

are you going to add the entire pre reg list now it is full so we can see who else is playing

Lost & Found / Re: I'm looking for Dan from Deerfield Const.
« on: January 22, 2011, 02:36:02 AM »
I doubt that anyone how to get in touch with Dan. My hope is he reads our message board.
His company made a generous donation for our fundraiser. The check was made out to J-Town disc golf & not to Morning Star Mission.
He's lost to me & I hope he can be found. If I'm in the wrong spot Jason Poole will make it right.
Let me know how I can meet up with you Dan.
If you can't find him why not just cash the check and give the cash to the Mission Frank?

There are two reasons why not. I don't have the check & it was made out to J-Town. Thanks Jr.
Your welcome Sr.!   ;D

The importance of friends is priceless when battling thru the tough times in life and there's plenty to go around on this board. There's no way to describe how helpful the good comments and caring goes towards the process of healing. You people are all awesome!

PDGA / Re: 2011 PDGA Rule Changes
« on: December 30, 2010, 09:47:52 AM »


By PDGAStaff  |  Dec 22, 2010

What rules have changed for 2011?

The PDGA Rules Committee has modified several rules that go into effect January 1, 2011. The full text of the updated rules is online here: PDGA Rules 2011 Renewing and new PDGA members will receive a copy of the new combined 2011 PDGA Competition and Rulebook in their member packets.

DROP ZONE: 800 & 803.11
Added the option for TDs to designate a drop zone for a lost disc. This might be done on big downhill holes where lost discs are common and identifying a drop zone farther down the hill speeds play.

HOLING OUT: 803.13
Starting in 2011, a player will not have to remove the disc to complete the process of holing out which was required under current rules. Once the group has decided the disc has come to rest, the player has holed out.

Several target related terms have been officially defined and added to the Definitions section 800 in support of the Holing Out rule. Definitions for Basket Target, Tray, Chains, Chain Support and Pole have been added.

Groups will now be responsible to make judgment calls on how discs enter the basket. Discs that attempt to enter or actually get all the way into the chains or basket thru the top of the chain support or thru the side or bottom of the basket now will not count if the group or official sees that happen. This means wedgies, most which wedge from the outside, now will not count unless it was a blind shot where no one saw how the disc wedged. Putts that are observed to properly enter the basket from above the rim and then wedge trying to get out will count as holed out like before.

These changes for holing out mean calls for the “putting tree” photo shown below that was in the Rules School story on Interference need to be updated. Under the old rules, only the yellow disc would not have been considered holed out when the player removed it. Under 2011 rules, the white and red discs are holed out (IN). The yellow disc as before and the orange disc hanging on the nub outside the basket are NOT IN. The orange disc balancing on the rim, which used to be considered IN, is now considered OUT in the 2011 rules because the disc is not entirely supported by the pole, inner wall or bottom of the basket. The orange wedgie is now NOT IN if the group observed it wedge from the outside. If the group did not see it or watched it clear the top basket wire then wedge on the way out, it is IN
See below for photo diagram.

OPTIONAL RETHROW (formerly Unplayable Lie): 803.06
While changing the rule name seems cosmetic, it eliminates a potential double penalty that might occur when the 2m rule was in force and provides an alternate option for missed mandatories. Under the new Optional Rethrow rule, players who miss a mandatory now have the option to rethrow from their original lie instead of the Mando Drop Zone if they prefer.

Essentially, the Optional Rethrow means players may rethrow from their original lie if their disc lands in any of the disc golf penalty hazards – OB, Missed Mando, above 2m and Lost (which already is handled this way) – and receive a 1-throw penalty. Of course just like the old Unplayable Lie rule, a player may choose this Optional Rethrow penalty without permission from the group no matter where their disc lands whether inbounds or a hazard location.

The old Unplayable Lie rule allowed players to either move back up to 5m on the line of play or return and throw from their original lie. The option to move back up to 5m has been eliminated. Throwing again from the original lie is now the only option as the renamed rule indicates.

GENERAL – Provisional Throws: 803.01C
Although not directly part of the Optional Rethrow rule, the new rule for Provisional Throws clarifies that a player may not later declare a throw they first called a Provisional as their Optional Rethrow. The player must go back and make an optional rethrow (if that's what they decided is the best option) and not use that provisional throw after seeing the results of the provisional and the original throw.

Significant changes here. A player is not allowed to move any obstacle on the course with the exception of casual obstacles to a stance listed below. A player is allowed to request that other people remove themselves and/or their belongings from the player's stance or line of play. This includes spectators, umbrellas, golf bags, chairs, etc…

Casual obstacles as in current rules – casual water, loose leaves or debris, broken branches no longer connected to a tree, motor vehicles, harmful insects or animals, players' equipment, people, or any item or area specifically designated by the director before the round – can be moved if they are in the player’s stance or run-up, even if part of the item like a branch is in front of the lie.

If the casual item can’t be moved, like water or a bee hive, the player may take free relief up to 5m back on the line of play like before. If players require additional relief beyond 5m, they may invoke either the new Optional Relief rule (803.05C) and go back on the line of play as far as they desire with a one-throw penalty. Or, decide to declare the Optional Rethrow discussed previously and return to their original lie and throw again with a one-throw penalty.

The “disc below playing surface” phrase has been moved from the Rules Q&A and added to this rule. This applies to a disc located down on a “non-playing surface” that players would not be able to play from such as a crack in the ground. The “disc below playing surface” section does not apply to a disc resting on or above a playing surface where another playing surface like a bridge might also pass above the disc. It’s possible that moving vertically from the front edge of the disc closest to the target up to the level playing surface might be a point in space. If so, then mark the lie on the playing surface near the edge of the crack on the line of play no closer to the target.

Thank You for that info Jesse! I hope we get new rule books with our memberships this year. Probably unlikely but that would be cool. I'm sure going to need one to remember all of those.

« on: December 22, 2010, 01:58:11 AM »
Announcing the FIRST EVER 100/100 CTP Fundraiser!!!
At the 2011 Aurora Ice Bowl I will be running a CTP fundraiser, one disc to be awarded for each round.  $1 per round.
100% of the proceeds will go to the Hesed House.
I will then match 100% of what is pulled in and present it to the J-town Ice Bowl for their charity, Morning Star Mission on behalf of the FVMDGC Ice Bowl.
Depending on which tees are played, I'm thinking hole 12.
The first round disc is yet to be decided, vote for it here; http://foxvalleymetrodiscgolfclub.com/forum/index.php?topic=2118.0
The second round disc will be a 2011 Asia Open Champion Glo Firebird FX, 175 g (the flattest, most over stable Firebird, maybe ever!)
Let's show some inter-club love and support both charities!
I'll see you at BOTH Ice Bowls.
Tafe Hemler
Way to go Taferoo!!!!!
