KOA - Kinda Off da hook ya All

Kind frolfers-

It has been awhile since I have written a real, honest to goodness blog post, not just some late night half-hearted beer-tinged snide comment such as "no, really, your mama said to hold that shit!".
Well my esteemed readers, this night is the night when I return to my literary roots, my latin roots, as it were, and, as I am sure my extremely intelligent and well educated audience will infer, the latin root of literary is debatable. Some think the root is "litter" as in " I littered bogeys all over my scorecard", or "Liter" as in " I drank 10 liters of beer before I tried to have a rap battle with Dallas". Either way, I am sure that most of you are skeptical by now if this post will have any point or will just be a wandering train of thought with no good substance. While, if I were a betting man, I would put money on the latter (not to be confused with litter), I will still attempt an informative and, perhaps, if the gods of the keyboard permit, entertaining discussion of what happened last weekend. (P.S. I will not mention at any point the fact that nobody wrote up my 7 stroke win 2 weekends ago, or wonder out loud if there was any regular Sunday tourney last weekend)
Sooooooo- well a bunch of us went to Willits last weekend. The weather kinda sucked ass. It was pretty much rainy, cloudy, windy, cold, muddy and wet the entire time. I think the sun might have come out Saturday afternoon, or it might have been the one round of lairs dice where I was playing well so it just felt nice. We played disc golf. It was kinda hard. I had a fun time.
It was really nice to see so many "new" club members come out at play in the tourney. When I showed up on Friday, our club had Hawk, Whip, Chris, Greg, Jeremy, Jake? (I think) and Craig playing doubles. By Saturday we also had Me, Derrick, Jim, David, Nathan, Ryan, Rusty, Jason, Erin and AJ join the mix. I think we can fairly say, the MCFC represented.
I have a bunch of thank you's, so here goes. Thanks D-roc and Double-D for getting the campsites (and G for hooking up the Depot!) Thanks to Franny, Dirka, Ryan and Kara for the delicious food. Thanks G and David for joining me in rap battling all the other crews friday night. Thanks AJ for playing Sunday. Thanks Jake, Nathan and Hawk for come out and watching my rounds and having such a good attitude. Thanks Craig, AJ, and D-roc for playing with me. I could keep going on...Thanks everybody!
Many people played well. I am going to cheat on this one, but I think the following people got paid: Erin shot -16 to place 9th in Open (oh btw you are supposed to say "yeah" after each name) In Am 1 D-roc shot -7 to finish 12th, I shot -4 to finish 17th. In Grandmaster Flash, G shot 10 up to finish 4th and in rec, Hawk finished at 12 over for second (including a -6 second round! holy shmolys!) and Nate "Bags-a-lot" took third at plus 18.
Did I miss anything? Ok so the recap was not a literary masterpiece. Then again, the tourney wasn't that pretty either. But kinda like the 2nd choice girl you took to prom, things worked out, you had a good time, and in the end, maybe you got a little more out of it than if you had the date you were hoping for. Lets us hope this isn't the last dance for the MCFC.


  1. WrtieUpWeather,

    Thanks for the post, doggy. I have to say that it was a fun and intense time. It was nice to bond with all the MCFCers and friends. It has been hard for me to get back into the real world. I have been constantly thinking of my rounds and how I could of improved by 3 strokes to get into the money. Disc Golf Tournaments are like another universe, another world, and/or a vortex...filled with emotion...sometimes happy, sometimes sad, sometimes flat, sometimes intense, but always discalicious! Bang Da Chains Mutherfuckers!


  2. Erin had an interesting idea for everyone to post their birdie total for the weekend. After a lot of counting while awake in the middle of the night waiting for my son to go back to sleep, I've got my total: 20. 6 the first round, 6 the second round, and 8 the final round. I had three holes i birdied every round: 1, 8, and 16 (!). Holes 1 and 8 I used the same disc for all six throws--my star Firebird--although I backhanded it on 1 and flicked it on 8. Interestingly, on hole 16 I used three different discs. The wind was different every time--and more of an issue than 1 or 8--so I used my new star destroyer the first round, my beat up destroyer the second round, and my new Katana the third round. Pretty cool, as I don't usually birdie that hole as much as I'd like.

    There were 4 holes that I birdied twice and parred once; 2, 4a, 7a, 11.

    And I might be proudest of this: i played the 12th and 14th holes in one over for the tourney. After bogieing both of them in the first round, I went par par, and then birdie par. Those are dangerous holes, and I was pretty happy with that result.

    It was the pond hole that proved the craziest for me. I birdied it in the short position from six feet. in the second round our group had to wait no less than a half-hour to play it, having to watch three groups go through, and getting cold and rained on the whole time. That's a LONG time to have to wait to play that shot. By that time my old body had tightened up, and I yanked two into the drink, and carded an 8, to take me out of the tourney. Brutal. In the afternoon round, we only had to wait about fifteen minutes, and I parred the bastard. I can't help but wonder what might have been if my first shot at that long hole had gone differently. I basically had a very strong tournament, with one bad hole after a half-hour wait. I'd be curious to know if anyone but Erin had more birdies, or fewer holes above par. Extremely frustrating.

    But through it all, I did have a blast of sorts, and thank everyone who brought food, and dealt with the campsites!! Wish I could do Tahoe too! Next tourney for me will probably be Crash's thing in Boonville, if I can make it. When is that???

    Cheers Kooks!
