Leagues & Tourneys / Tuesday 09/21 Handicap
« on: September 20, 2010, 06:03:25 AM »
We may have a problem with our handicap league Tuesday 09/21 at Channahon. It's cross country season & Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Saturday morning are cross country days. Sometimes on week days there are only a few runners & sometimes many. I know this & should have said something sooner. I have no conclusion, we'll just have to see.

Lost & Found / Way to Go Hutter!
« on: September 15, 2010, 08:34:56 PM »
I lost my CE Valkyrie, hole #7 Lockport. Hutters drive was in the area of my upshot, which hyzered in the schoul,  Ryan Garvick found it. It was a disc I really didn't want to lose. Great find Ryan!!! Thanks!!!

Courses / Let the Talks Begin!
« on: September 11, 2010, 10:04:21 PM »
The park called Friday afternoon & wants to meet at my convenience. I'm going to see if Thursday morning works. There are issues on both sides & we'll have to see how er can compromise. The reality for me was to throw in the towel. I know how to sneak out there & do a minimum to get ready for the tournament. I have so much more going on in my life to argue with unthankful people. They want to talk so maybe they do appreciate what's been done. It's encouraging.
We'll see.

Thank You's / Kudos Jason Poole!!!
« on: September 05, 2010, 08:24:48 PM »
You have to see the work he did  on #4. Awesome!!! First he had to come up with the design, then size it to fit. He then cut the letters to make a wooden template After that spacers had to be made for the right height so the router wouldn't go in too deep. The words are recessed into the wood, in case some don't what a router does.  This was time consuming. It is simply awesome!!! Nice job Jason!!!

Courses / No Seed for #11 Channahon
« on: September 03, 2010, 09:35:58 PM »
I'm running into some snags with the park. One mail says finish you're projects & another says don't do any more until we talk.
Here's a little story. I hoped to have that seeded last fall, obviously that didn't happen. As things worked out I got fill from the upgrades they're doing in the park. Although much of the work was done by hand part of the 150 yards was knocked down with a machine.
I went for radiation & after the treatments would go there & work. It was easy to nap when I got tired. That went on for about a month, I'm guessing on average three times a week. I broke the shaft on my tiller because of the rocks. I decided to get pulverized dirt & get ready for seed. The park shut me down. Go figure? No cost to the park, no labor cost.  What's up? I've told them how I feel but that's been tempered, at least by my definition. I refuse to put up with their bullshit. If I meet with them I'll tell them what I really think. Bottom line one bridge burnt down & destroyed. OK! What can I do at Highland & Oswego? I already have ideas.

Courses / Channahon No sod #11
« on: September 01, 2010, 08:26:17 PM »
As much as I'd like to see sod on #11, I'm going to pass & seed it. I'm running at about 75 maybe 80%. There are other things other than disc golf I'm tied up with. I'm not getting support from the park, & I wanted them to pick up the sod.
It's going to cost somewhere in the $450.00 range without delivery. I'm getting three loads of dirt, one for long 14's tee, the other two for #14. With other things going on I don't have any reserve. I can't open the can of Whoop Ass! If I can't soon, I'm going to eat the whole damn can!

Thanks for the volunteers,

Courses / Channahon #19 (Repeat)
« on: August 27, 2010, 04:39:50 AM »
I saw some familiar disc golf face throwing to #19. They said they knew about the no throwing to the practise basket but were getting ready to throw anyway. They also commented no one would notice. People do notice!
The park people said it wasn't their choice but they would pull the basket it it continued. I think a car was hit & they got a complaint.
Look, many people use the park for different things, & that park of the park is not a fairway. We have our area to throw discs.
I ask if you see someone throwing there, ask them not to. It doesn't help our disc golf cause. Overall, I think we're doing good, I just don't want to test the power of the park.
Thanks!

Courses / A Few Good Men
« on: August 23, 2010, 08:14:35 PM »
I'm looking for a few good men to lay sod, the week September 5. This is #11 at Channahon.
It will be about 200 pieces. It will be set up ready to go. I think it will be about 1 1/2 hours, maybe an hour depending on the help.
It's most likely we'll DI it during the week. If you can't be there yourself, find someone you can pay & send them. I will, but I'm not lookinf forward to carry all that sod by myself.
By the way Jason Poole can the spell check be upgraded? It didn't correct lookinf. Looking is what it should be.

Shoot The Breeze / Jonie B for Bad?
« on: August 20, 2010, 05:58:32 AM »
 I can't believe I 'm waking up thinking about this loser. I have a personal thing about not returning phone calls especially in this case. I did get one returned & a voice mail was left. I returned that call many times with no answer back.
You have two things I find contemptable Jon, stealing, & lying!
Dean was right. That's too bad Jon. I want my phone back, someone with quality may find it useful. You can give it to Patrick.

Shoot The Breeze / Ice Bowl 2011
« on: August 15, 2010, 06:26:09 PM »
I realize this is August & it's some time ahead to be thinking about an Ice Bowl.  I also want to mention I haven't discussed this with the  J-Town board. I'm assuming we will be doing it again although it's not formal, so this is coming from me not the J-Town Club.
We did extremely well for our first year. That came from little planning & kind of flying by the seat of our pants. Randy Moore & Thor helped me get started with a presentation which help me come up with my own style.
This thought came from what Fox Valley is doing & they're starting their promotion now. My thinking is they're filling a swimming pool with a shot glass compared to what J-Town can raise for Morning Star Mission. I might add they have quite the program in how they screen people & who they help.
I just want to plant the seed.
The last few Sundays have been chill day for me but my mind is still working.
The next big deal for me is the Channahon Classic & things aren't going well to my plans, I'm having equip. problems.
I'm proud to be a part of J-Town & I want to point out, Jason Poole was the fulcrum. Did I get that right Jason?
I've said this before & maybe a hundred times more, I'm proud & thrilled to be a part of such a great group of people!!!
You Go J-Town!!!

Leagues & Tourneys / Heads Up!

League is at Channahon this week & the mosquitoes are brutal. You might want to bring repellent. I keep forgetting for myself.

Shoot The Breeze / Jonie B. Good
« on: August 08, 2010, 11:28:42 PM »
I  deleted the post looking for Jon's #, I have it now. I want to point out people in desperate situations do desperate things.  He wants to make right his mistakes & I think he will. I have some work his willing to do, with that he wants to make right with the disc golf comunity.
I bought some of the other things that he was accused of that may be false. I'm hearing people want to hang him without a trial.
Let's try to help him not hang him. If you don't agree let me know of the address of the glass house you live in.

Courses / Channahon getting it ready for the Classic
« on: July 31, 2010, 04:06:06 AM »
I have been accused for not asking for help. That's only partially true. I want good help. Many have helped, things like the concrete tees, adjusting hole #2, raising #12, laying the sod on #4 are a few  things that come to mind. Part of my bond with our disc golf community is the people who have stepped & helped as they saw the need. It's been over a decade at Channahon & many have helped, so I can't take all the credit. Thanks for chipping in.
I'm going to need help with the sod on #11. Now laying sod is not mentally challenging, the joints need to be tight & green side up is about it. Some will need to carry & some apply. I think four good people will do it. No slackers & I think we can do it in about an hour. I'm looking at week 09/05/10.
Jesse may announce it @ doubles when it comes to crunch time.
We have a great body of people in our disc golf community & I'm proud to be a part of it.

Frank
