LOL.. maybe by this fall. I got alot of catching up to do until then.
Then I too could be the butt of your jokes?
Also , I was thinking about Jeff. You are leading the ams points for now. You going to play the advanced for Tombigbee and spoil the 2 points that you will get for coming to play in the Am's? Hate to hear about anyone coming in DFL, but I suppose someones got to.
If you happen to read this before you run off to Kentucky, good luck. Anyone interested, I am sure that we will be playing most all weekend at Tombigbee, if the weather permits.
Sounds like y'all are going to have a wonderful tournament. I hope the weather is great for the weekend. I still haven't made it past the Jackson line to play a course, but sooner or later I will. Griff, don't get too many points now. Good luck to all.
Bill and I really enjoy hosting tournaments at Tombigbee State Park in Tupelo, Miss., but we think that with the growth of disc golf in the area, future tournaments should be hosted by some of the local players. I can't drive 1.5 hrs. several times to beat the bushes for sponsorship like local players can. Good sponsorship makes a good tournament great. If anybody is interested in this idea, let us know. We will assist you in any way that we can including using our leaderboard and assisting while you learn the techniques of being a T.D. See y'all next week end.
Uhh.. I dont think I will be playing advanced just yet. I got a big mouth, but not a big arm. I know its my home course, but I haven't found my rhythm yet this year, hopefully by the fall though. I dont plan on taking any breaks this year.
Thanks for the faith in me though.. LOL. I know that Fair and I would be glad to TD some tournaments in the future. We can talk about it next weekend and see what the fall has in store for Tupelo. I am sure we would have the other course ready by then as well.
I played today after the rain last night and several of the boxes had water standing in them, so we will get to work on that hopefully tomorrow. I dont want people to be pissed that we dont take care of our course.
I might be interested in making a CTP Sunday. What does that usually cost a sponsor. A disc or money?
Really glad to be back and playing with all you guys. Still hoping for good weather.
I will correct your division. YOu guys are doing good things down there, I look forward to seeing & playing the new course. I am sure you guys can handle the TD duties, and you are at least down there to round up the sponsors.
AS far as the CPT goes, anyone wishing do donate prizes for them just needs to let us know so that we can plan for it, and also do the thank yous in the players meeting. . . a VERY important part of appreciating eveyone who takes an interest in an event.
Be thinking of what hole you would like to sponsor, I have the sign, just a matter of putting it out!
Yes Fair, I'm hoping everyone will have a great time. One thing I wonder about though... There was never a flyer posted at Tombigbee about it! I talked to tons of people telling them to come up Saturday and Sunday; Most of these people didn't have a clue about it. I believe Tupelo would have better turn outs if we could publicize its own tournys more.
Hey Hal, you can still copy the flyer that DG Guy has available and post it at the park. I plan on being there Wed. afternoon with a couple of full-colored flyers to post at the office and the bullentin board. Better late than never. I also plan on laying out the final 6, any helpers?
I emailed a flyer to the park on the 12th of March, along with a request to find out about the new course going in. I thought that they had posted it?
As Mac says, he will be down there tomorow and he is taking a bunch of flyers with him to leave there. Don't know what it was not posted.
Our normal procedure is to email flyers out about a month before the event, sometimes earlier to the location to be sure we have everything right. Looks like this one might have fell through the cracks!
With the word out and the weather looking as about as good as it gets. . . . I am looking forward to one of the best turnouts Tombigbee has seen. I think the most people that have been there for an event is around the mid 50's.
LOL.. sounds like there will be a great turnout. I know I will probably be there most of the day Thursday as well, but I am going to be trying to talk the park rangers into some more work on the course. Of course I am better at coordinating the work than doing it myself.
Hope this doesn't come across the wrong way, but around here the club members clean and work on the course, cutting limbs, raking, repairing tee pads, trimming, picking up sticks, etc. All our park does, which is appreciated, is cut the grass. I can say that our club put in several hours of hard work before the Spring Fling-It and two others, Kyle Boatwright and Jack White worked through the week to get the course into shape.
I think it's up to individual hosting club to maintain their course. This is just my opinion. RwC
I played at Tupelo today and noticed flyers had been put up; A colored one and a grayscale! All right!
As for fixing up the course: It needs some major work in some areas. That big ran flooded several of the holes. Maybe we can put our bags down for a few hours thursday and work on cleaning up the course?
Awesome, thanks for all the suppot guys. We will get to work on it then. I noticed today that there was alot of drainage problems. I dont know that we can get it done before this weekend, but we will get to work. I have spent several hours so far, but we are just now working on a Tupelo Disc Golf Club.
I hear local people talk about how nice Wall Doxey is, I dont think they realize how much work goes into that course from the club. The rangers out here told me the other day that it is our course, so we can do really what we want. So guys while you are walking the course spend some time, picking up stuff and help clear it up a bit. I dont think clearing up the logs on the ground are going to make the course any easier.LOL If you see kids or idiots pulling limbs or trees down, ask them to stop or tell Fair, he will take care of it. hehe
I will ask that the rangers bring some more gravel, down into the pits. I am asking that anyone that you can talk into it, to meet Thursday afternoon at 4 PM to meet and help clean up. It would be so much easier if we could each take a couple of holes to clean up instead of 2 poeple having to do them all. Bring something to cut roots and maybe a shovel to get some drainage ditches done. Just bring yourself. I think 4 will be the best time, so the high school kids can get there and its not too late to get alot done.
Looks like its going to be a great weekend. We spent a couple hours yesterday moving logs and fallen trees. Thanks to all you guys that showed up to help. I think that the course is a little easier to walk, but then again there isn't anything to stop the ROLLERS anymore. So you might spend a lot of time at the bottom of the hills catching your discs. Good luck to everyone.
