An interesting thing happen to me yesterday. I bumped into the park superintendent  yesterday.We ended talking about the meeting we had a week ago. The two supervisors talked a couple of days before & the executive director said it doesn't look good for Frank. I felt like a used whore & my age was showing. Any way both of us where ready to tell the other to take a hike. I've had years of negative build up & was prepared to throw it down the tubes. I just wanted to get one more thing done. Like I said, I thought about it for some time & they probably felt the same way. It was music to my ears when I was told we like what you do & want you to continue. It brings me back to,do you believe in God?

Ha, ha, ha, ha! You see I get confused easy sometimes too, that made me chuckle. Some morning it's great to get up & have something put a smile on my face. I have a picture of Jesse going oops & Dean (bangam) going, what's up with that.

Leagues & Tourneys / Re: Tuesday 09/21 Handicap
« on: September 21, 2010, 08:37:51 PM »
It really worked out pretty well tonight relative to cross country. They start around 4:15 & are wrapping up by 5:15. the bangam had everybody start past #3 so by the time we got to #16 everything was clear. The relative new xc route was brought before the Channahon Park district board some years & they went along with the new route. It worked out nicely for tonight. Of course when they have a big meet nothing works for disc golf. Tuesday & Thursday are usually much smaller.
Not relative to xc was the rain! It just dumped,with lightning!!! Some didn't finish.

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.

How true Mr. Joe Flash. I'd be there with hand clippres & a flashlight getting the job done. Of course I'd have my camouflage on.

Flash can throw. We played at Highland & on #9, I through twice & was still short of his drive, about a foot. Now everyone knows I don't have any D, but I threw 3 times! I didn't hit anything either! I remember him before he got hurt & after 4 years & big time struggle he's coming around.
 He throws so smooth & effortless. Flash gets my vote!!!

The meeting went as scheduled & nothing remarkable happened. I was asked what I didn't like & said so. No solutions were offered. Chuck Szoke is the head chief & said he would like me to continue working there. He also said he was going to double my wages. He likes what I do & on the bigger changes, would like notice. We talked for about 45 minutes & I thought there would be some confrontation, nothing close. I didn't feel the same about the next guy down the line, Pat Fox. He said nothing. Daryl Cole, the man before Pat took care of the course, so I was a Gods send to him. Pat has not had the same responsible, so it appears he doesn't care much. I've got a lot to do next week. Classic is coming up.
I may ask the sod men to help me pick up rocks.

Thank You's / Re: Kudos Jason Poole!!!

I wanted to say something before this but as Jesse pointed out the behind the scenes guy. This web sight is all Jason, the spread sheets he makes for handicap league, what he does with the computer for local tournaments, he is also huge in starting the J-Town disc golf club. Notice the score card board he made. The thing the score cards are put in for tournaments.  I think he took on line sewing lessons. Just a few things that I think are taken for granted. I'm glad he's with us. He's really quite a guy!

I always think of something after I post. He gave me a heads up about grass seed. I'm still unsure what' going to happen, I'll know in less than 12 hours, a meeting is scheduled at 0730.

Lost & Found / Way to Go Hutter!

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!!!

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.

Shoot The Breeze / Re: My Friend FRANK
« on: September 08, 2010, 10:29:01 PM »
This is a mini update. I had blood test last week & got the results yesterday Tuesday. They were good. The concern for me is what the psa would be & that was 1.14 a far cry from 13.82. To be clear, under 4 is good, but I was expecting near zero or maybe .25. The tests are more than psa, like Cloistral, the good was 170 & the bad 90.the limits are 200 & 130.
It been three weeks since my last treatment. My sleep is still inconsistent. I'm only getting up 2 -3 times a night to urinate in stead of 4 -6. One day over the weekend I slept until 0800 & the next 0300. As I mentioned before, the Nov. test is a big deal. Everything should be normal by then.
I'm really doing good, it just is going so slow. Thanks again for your support!!!

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.
