The Algerian Jackal

The setting: Hole 17 A course

Chris V turns to Davey D and says: "Davey, I think it is between you and me." Somewhere in the high grasses AJ (The Algerian Jackal) is laughing his head off. As we finish the round and tally the scores turns out the opportunistic omnivore Algerian Jackal wins the card by 1 stroke shooting 5 under his handicap. As the other members of jungle come closer to the jackal we find out that Dirka has tied the Jackal. Playoff hole...hole 11. As the Jackal is most active at dusk it is no surprise that AJ won the playoff hole, won the tourney, and then went to Splattys for his feastings! And that my friends is the story of AJ, the Algerian Jackal.

This is Davey D reporting from Mendocino, California.

The Messiah of Disc

I thought posting a picture of Moses would inspire someone else to write words fitting of what has transpired amongst our humble gathering of friends and acquaintances, who gather several times a week with the spartan goal of hurling pieces of plastic into a basket made of chain, in the fewest throws as possible, to comment on what occurred this Sunday. But lo, much as the humble Shepard who first cast eyes with wonderment upon the most holy of thine, they stand agape, unable to find a way to express the sublime divinity of that which they have witnessed. May the words that I write be blessed by that which guides the Destroyer, to skip and wind its way through the darkness of the forest, only to be graced by its proximity to the basket. Let the Holiness which is our creator, bear witness on the 40 foot jump putts into the icy breath of the unforgiving wind. And let not the temptation of the darkness, which shall be named Jealousy, forbade our rapture for that which we would sacrifice our very soul. Let it be know that One, he namethed David, shall slay the record of Disc Golf, and that none but he namethed Hawk shall challenge in that honor. Thus, let it be written, for those who becometh, David the Dentist (he who beknownest as Davy "fucking" D) heretoforthough will be the King of Kings of the MCFC, for he has not once, not twice, and not thrice, but Four times overcome all those who would challenge his honor. From this day forward, we shall revere "Four" as the most holy of numbers, all those which are not named Four shall be deemed blasphemous. Five be too many, three to few. Two is right out. Finally, for all those who may follow the King, they shall reference any such disc golf events in his honor, and if a shot is blessed enough to find a true line, by the good grace of David, it will be due to the sacrifice of Him for all disckind. ("Hey, nice shot Jim" "Yes, thanks be to David") No other figures (though they be named "Ken Climo" or "Dave Feldberg") may be worshiped in his place or instead of his likeness. Let it be known.

For Davey-D and the boys, Sunday November sixth, two-thousand and eleven, will go down in the books as "The day Davey-D won his third "Mendocino Handicapped Sunday Tournament hosted by the MCFC in a row".
All three of Davey's rounds were Stellar:
  • -7 B-course
  • -12 A-course
  • -12 A-course (moon-lit three-hole playoff with Jeremy)
With a burdensome handicap, he managed three in a row and for that we Cheer.
There has been discussion for some time concerning the ability to even get three in a row with a mature handicap. Davey did it. Now, can he make it four?

B-course handi update


I updated the B course handis. Hope you all enjoyed the Bag Tag Challenge Sunday. David continued his hot streak by shooting a blistering -12, winning the tourney and overall. There was a 3 way tie for second- I did not stay to see the outcome...
