December 23rd, 2012

There was a big turn out for the last A Course tournament of the year.  Bag Tags were on the line and people were revved up to play.  There were 3 cards and 11 or 12 paid customers. 

Prior to tournament Sir Parkwhether (Matthew) announced that we have money in the club fund, we usually pay membership dues each year, and he posed the question of getting some hot stamped discs for our new membership dues.  JimmerMcJimmerson announced that he is going to order new bag tags.  We should have a meeting sometime in January.  Also, Davey D (with Rye Bread in mind) told folks to pencil in the first leg of the 2013 Coast Cup for the weekend of February 2nd and 3rd at Lake Mendocino. 

Light North/NorthWest Wind = pretty good conditions but it was wet (on the ground) and a little rain in the air at times.  G shot a great round shooting 9 under (7 under his handicap) to take the coveted paper slips (money) while Jake Tupper shot  -8 (6 under his handicap) to seal up 2nd place.  This writer (Davey D) shot the round of the day (12 under) to take home the womb broom (number 1 tag). 

There were many CTP prizes such as:  discs, flags, and rits crackers.  Winners of the CTP prizes were:  Hawk, G, Jeremy, Jim, Tups, and Ian (anybody else?). 

I will take the coveted womb broom to Tucson, Arizona (my sister, brother in law, and nephew live there) and sweep up the desert with it as I teach the desert rats how to play disc golf...mendo style. 

I will see y'all next year (Sunday January 6th to be exact).  Happy Frolfing1

End of the World- Sunday tourney

Well, the end of the world turned out to be just about as eventful as Y2K- I guess thats a good thing.  Hopefully we can take a break from the world ending for a few years.  One thing that is ending is the year 2012.  This means a lot of things in the disc golf world- new bag tags, new memberships, etc.  I am considering getting a order of hotstamped discs for our 2013 membership package- I would love some input on what the design should be.
  Today is also the final A course round of the month, meaning the last bag tag challenge of the year.  Lets all get out and do this thing. Also, I encourage everyone to get into the christmas spirit and bring a CTP or several to make sure we are all winners today.
Finally, anyone know why our blog is suddenly getting spammed? Can anyone do anything to stop it? I don't really want to buy male enhancement products from peru...
(BTW I learned where the phrase spammed came from if anyone is curious)

Fort Bragg Icebowl

the  4th annual Cary Letsinger Memorial Icebowl is scheduled for feb 23 2013. lets do this guys, i think we are starting to get this shit down

A Shot Gun Start? A Tie?

"A pitcher of Racer 5" says someone.  The sound of dice in a cup hitting the table.  "Who is closest to the door"?  "Eight 6s" says "the person closest to the door. 

30 minutes before

"So what your saying is we showed up to tournament and David and Erin took all the money" -ParkWeather
"We can't split the ace pot just because I put in a dollar for you" -Davey D
"Yeah, that is what we are doing" -Erin Hemmings

Approximately 2 1/2 hours before

Conditions:  cold, wet, a little drizzly, southish wind

Participants:  JeremyEpic, UkiahGeorge, Hemulous, ItaliaJim, Parky, Rye Bread, Davey D

Course:  B

Other Info:  Bag Tag Challenge

Cards:  Jeremy, George, and Hemmies tee off first on hole 1.  Davey, Jim, Parky, and Rye tee off 8 minutes later on hole 1. 

Just prior to our tee off we witness Erin skip ace hole 2.  As you may have guessed by clues earlier in this write up, I, Davey D, put in a dollar for Hemmies' ace pot and as some people (those smart and witty) say well, if you ace I get half.  I in fact did say this and Hemmies obliged and gave me half the ace pot...Thanks Hems.  If you are doing the math (and as Rye Bread pointed out) Hemmies was 3 under after 2 holes.  The round was played and we finished in the dark.  The boys went up to Parky's truck to see who won and see what bag tags got switched around.  Unbelievable, everybody left with the same tags they came with.  After tallying the handicaps both Davey D and Hemmies finished 3 under their handicap.  Instead of playing what probably would of turned out to be 100 holes, we decided to split the winnings and take our fine earned money to the clubhouse...Splattys. 

P.S. I enjoy the new Ice Bowl picture on the blog.  By the way is that AJ?  Thanks!

Time change for Mendo tourney

Well its that time of year again- the crappy time, when it gets dark early and cold and everybody gets sick and its hard to find time to disc.  Also its the time of year we start the mendo tourney at 2:30.  Keep in mind that the clock changes on Saturday night as well.  What does this all mean? I have no idea, but I would give myself about a 1 in 5 chance of figuring it all out at and getting to tourney on time.
  In other news: Derrick won Sunday A course with a bilstering -10. Whip came in second, and won the coveted towel-clippy-puller-backer-thingy.  I won a CTP and got a lousy $10.  Welcome to the double digit club d-roc, if you weren't a member already!!! (I am to lazy to check right now)
On Thursday- Greg tore some s$%t up at fort bragg and shot a -9, Chris V came in second.
Finally I am happy to report that in a doubles match held yesterday in Mendocino, the doubles course record for B course was broken.  Erin and I shot -15 in defeating Jim and David (who held the old record with Erin).  Yay us!

The Last 3 Weeks

9/23/12 = There was a random soccer game at Mendo High so we went to Fort Breezy and played doubles.  Chris V. and Joseph were triumphant. 

9/30/12 = C Course was played and Jubilee shot like 100 under his handicap and won.  I didn't play with him but reports confirm that he played the game of his life and beat notable players like Jake Tupper and Jeremy straight up. 

10/7/12 = Old school A course was played and there were many memorable shots including our second hole (hole 4) were Jimmy ItalyRidge aced it.  No surprise, GelatoRidge shot the best round at 9under but this day also belonged to Wip who tied for his best round at 8 under and won the tournament.  Jody Brody came in second place.  Another shot worth characterizing is hole 15 Bryan "no run up" Brody threw a back hand right at it low and it skipped off one of the rubber mats and hit the basket about 1 foot from being an ace...Cool Shot BRODY! 

I think Manchester is next weekend??  Chris V, is this correct?  I will be out of town so I will not be there.  In 2 weeks NorCal Championships is in Grass and Penn Valley.  Several of the MCFCers will be traveling to this event to show the rest of Northern California how we roll on the Coast.

Sunday Tournament

Aloha frolfers and frolfettes,
I am writing today as a form of penance.  It has been much too long since I babbled away on the MCFC blog and I have chosen to dedicate the next few moments of my life as punishment for my lack of attention to the Mendocino Coast Frolf Community.

Dispatch from 9/2/2012 Mendocino High School Disc Golf Course:
-Attendance: 12
-Conditions: Steady NNW wind 10-20 kts. with sporadic gusts.  sunny and warm
-Stakes: Tournament Handicapped Victory; Ace Pot; All-Who-Want-In Bag-Tag Challenge

There are many stories to tell this sunday but as my truck is parked in 2-hour parking outside of the office, I will tell them as briefly as possible.

1) Wip shoots -8 and wins the dough with -10? handicapped.  hell of a round.  It was windier than it looked and was a "men from the boys" sort of a day.  The wind could help if you knew how or it could crush you if you didn't.  Wip did and crushed the field.  Second place went to Tupper.  He only said, "Really, that's not fair" a few times and left enough room to birdie hard at the end and secure second.

2) Jeremy hits the Ace pot.  "Really?  Jeremy?  You can't expect me to believe that Jeremy hit an ace during a disc golf round.  Preposterous.  Oh, right, THAT Jeremy.  He always aces." said the unamed imaginary witness. 

3) Davey D out plays the field for the overall win and the scooping of the #1 tag.  Erin shot an admirable -12 but Davey Deesnuts Steinry nailed down the victory with a -13.  Not too shaby for just a city boy, born and raised somewhere out near Detroit.  Who took the midnight train going A-NY-WHERE. 

Nice Tourney Boys and I look forward to next weeks installment of DiscsOnIce

fort bragg course sponsor disc artwork

hi guys
As part of the sponsor program for improving the fort bragg course i was planning on getting some custom discs for all the sponsors. Gateway just offered a deal and i decided to snatch it up so we will be getting 50 custom discs and 50 custom minis, i was hoping we might be able to find/create a original piece of art  for these discs, something that positively recognizes fort bragg and clearly states fort bragg college of the redwoods disc golf course sponsor. I've been having trouble thinking of what that image would be as we don't really have many distinguishing features on the course, so i was thinking outside the box at anything that represented fort bragg like ocean waves, abalone... anything that might be relevant to fort bragg. so im looking for ideas and or artwork, all the usual limitations apply as it is to be hot stamped is need to be a clear image. maybe we could get Erins talented mom to come up with something again?
anywho  what all yall think

The Last 2 Weeks, Today, Dan, and the changing of the guard!

3 Weeks ago = MCFC played the B Course and ParkWeather took the crown. 

2 Weeks ago = C Course was played and I think Jake Tups won but I am not positive. 

Today = Traditional A course was played on a cold, windy, foggy Mendo Coast day.  There were 8 players, 2 cards, and a lot of ace runs including MateoWeather hitting the gym on hole 8 and rolled within feet of doing the rolly mcrollerton shot.  Also, on this hole Rye Bread hit the basket.  2nd place was Rye Bread shooting 9 under (4 under his handi).  1st place goes to  lieutenant/farmer/Boonville Dan shooting 6 under (5 under his handicap). 

Changing of the guard = I would like to congratulate Erin Hemulous Hemmings for keeping the number 1 bag tag for all of 2012 until this day (is this accurate)?  That is quite a stretch!  Going into hole 18 I didn't know my score but I knew I was close to Rye Bread and Hemmies.  After Rye Bread split the up rights and I split the uprights I thought to myself (well, if I beat Hemmies by a stroke and tie Bread I will get the number 1 womb broom tag).  Well, of course Bread hits his birdie and I hit my drop in birdie.  Bread and I tied beating out King Hemmies by 1 stroke but I forgot (Bread soon let me know) that going into the day he had number 4 and I had number 5...shit I thought and said to myself...dam that one stroke. 

Congrats to Dan the Man and Rye Bread!

Boontfling Brewery Bash Begets Brilliant Birdies!!!

--BOONVILLE, CA   Intrepid coastal frolfers flocked to the yearly Boontfling disc golf tournament knowing what to expect:  delicious brews, fabulous frolf, killer payouts, and terrific showings from the MCFC!  This reporter only has limited knowledge of the final results, so everyone please fill in the gaps.

~Single-digit-weather and Bread take 7th in Am1, with excellent under-par rounds on the final day, overcoming untold obstacles!
~D-Money leads AM1 for the first two rounds and finishes somewhere around 3rd, 4th, 5th?
~Davey-D improves on his 3rd-place AM1 finish last year with a 5-under final round and 2nd place.
~Dirty Dan-the-Man shoots probably the best Sunday round on the course--9 under!!--and takes the AM1s handily, setting a new standard for how to play on the lead card!  He's already vowed to bump up to the open division next year.  Clearly he has the shots for that course!
~Jason repeats in GrandMasters division, and achieves the incomparable BEER FOR LIFE FOR LIFE!!!!!
~Erin takes third in the Open division, which probably would have been a second if not for a course management issue at the end.  We all eagerly await the day he finally slays the Dallas monster!
~Brady makes an ace for the second year in a row!  Damn dude!  Did everyone PAY that man??
~Other MCFCers, including Wip, Hawk, G, Nate, Brun, Craig, Tup, and others do amazing things that I was not aware of!!!
~Jim has too many balls in the air to relax and enjoy the weekend, and craps bed on course!  Playing partners show patience and unspoken pity!

Thanks to Krash and the AVBC for the killer partay!  May next year come soon... I'm already ready for redemption!!

June 15=C Course Wins and June 22=Tups

Last Sunday June 15, 2012 the Mendocino Coast Frolf Club played C course and noone shot under par.  I forgot who won but many players were disappointed on their play.  Today June 22, 2012 a windy A Course was played and several people shot under par.  Jacob Tups won shooting -4 (7 under his handicap).  Raydin came in second place and generously donated his winnings to the MCFC.  The ace pot which was at $65 was raped and pillaged by Erin Hemulous when he smacked the chains on hole 13.  I didn't see this shot but I heard it was a flick right at it.  FYI-next week the MCFC will take its talents to Boonville to play the Boontfling.  Let's go MCFC...let's kick some Valley Ass! 


Sunday, June 17, 2012

I won, Finally, Tups, A formidably opponent, I suck at dice, Davey Earnhardt Junior, Splattys, Gone For 3 weeks, My Final Horray!

Upon the eve that Dale Earnhardt Junior won in my home state of Michigan...where I first learned how to play disc (umptenth years ago..actually 17) the monkey actually leaped off my back.  Many of the readers didn't know the monkey was hanging around but (check the records) I don't think I have won since the 4 peat in October of 2011.  Anyways, unlike Matt Cain, I didn't do anything special I just played super solid disc golf and made my 20 foot putts except hole 1 when the monkey knocked my putt out.  Anyways, it took a 2 hole playoff where my compadre, Jacob Tupps a lot Tuppir, knocked down a 33 foot putt to push it to a 2nd hole which I parked and Tupps parred.  Anyways, I shit the bed on posting a picture so anyone feel free to change the pic.  P.S. Max Sherzer struck out 12! 

Fellows, I am out!  I will see y'all July 11thish!

The Last 2 Weeks, G, Tups, and Matt Cain!

Sunday June 3, 2012 witnessed the MCFC play C course and G Money Smooth Skin take home the golden cookie shooting something under his handicap (???).  Sunday June 10, 2012 Traditional A course was played and Jake Jacob Tupper Tups shot 3 down which is something like 10 under his handicap.  BagsWeathers came in 2nd place.   In related news San Francisco Giant Matt Cain (Erin Hemming's doppelganger) pitched a perfect game...the 2nd of the year, the 22nd in MLB history and the 1st in Giant's history.  This story leads me to the question of the week:  Is Erin Hemmings and Matt Cain the same person?  Have you ever seen Matt Cain and Erin Hemmings in the same room?  I haven't.  Maybe Bruce Wayne is to Batman what Erin Hemmings is to Matt Cain.  Curious minds want to know.  I can't wait for Boontfling!

Meeting held, scores updated

The club held a meeting last night.  We ate pizza, drank beer, gave money to my kids and talked about disc golf.   I will write up a summary soon.  Also I updated B course handi's and the who scored what page.  Chris- I fixed your score.

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Quick update-

Hey y'all - just wanted to give the heads up that there will be a club meeting this thursday 5:30 at the pizza factory.  We can talk about whatever, but I think the main topix include where to put concrete tee's in FB, whats up with the pro-am, a possible high/low cap to handi's, etc.  This is your chance to have your say in your club.  If you have a strong feeling about something but can't make it, tell someone who can.
In other news, last week Erin won tuesday pm doubles playing by himself.  Alex V won sunday C course tourney shooting 4 under his handi.  Derrick and myself tied for 2nd, and Derrick beat me in a playoff.  Doubles tonight at 5:30, FB.  PEACE!

Mendo, Buddha Tree, Masters Cup, and Frolfity Frolf Frolf!

Well, where to start?  So, on 4/22/12 C course was played and Craig Mack took the title shooting 80 under his handicap.  On 4/29/12 a windy A course was played and Hemmersons won!  The weekend of Cinco de Mayo some frolfers went to Lake County, some went to Masters Cup in Santa Cruz, and some went to Humboldt County to play the Buddha Tree.  It so happens that this writer went to Buddha Tree and had an awesome time and there was actual some good competition.  Dallas, Jerry Eshelman, Erin Hemmings, Jesse Williams, and the course designer (among many others) played Open/Pro and our very own Hemmersons took 9th place putting him in the money winning $55.  Dallas and Jesse Williams tied for 1st and Jesse won in a playoff.  Am-1 was flooded with talent including Mendonesians/Fort Braggarts:  Davey D, ParkWeather, J-Ridge, Rye Bread, and many other Humboldt cats.  I am proud to say I outlasted the wind, sun, and 2 27 hole/7 hour rounds to represent the MCFC and take 2nd place.  It took a 3 hole playoff against an 18 year old cat from Humboldt but Davey (with the support of Sir Spartacus and Senior Rye Bread following me along) prevailed and I won $107.50 in script.  Besides the frolf it was an awesome time filled with drink, cheer, dice, shotgunning beers(or ramming if your from Humboldt County), pinata blasting, getting fed for free, and dancing to "The Rammanators" (a local band).  I believe in our own local tournament B course was played and Vinny came out on top.  There ya have it.  Happy Frolfing!

The last two weeks....

Doggy Style

Well, despite the dearth of information on our blogs (which apparently 9 people look at ((according to the blog stats)) meaning about one third of our club) Things have happened in the last two weeks!  Perhaps it has been the absence of some of our regulars, such as David "desert rat" D, Jim "city slicker" Eldridge or Erin "Hucking shit in Vegas" Hemulous.  Or the inevitable let down after the club expended so much energy in so little time.  Or the sudden break out of seasonable weather, but for whatever reason no one has sat down and wasted valuable hours of rest to trying to tell everyone (or 1/3 of everyone) what they already  know in a witty and humorous way.  Yes Derrick won the coast cup, which was rad, and deserves its own write up, which I am sure Jim, my literate and nimble prose producing partner can expound on.  I did not win, and neither did you unless your name is Hawk or Erin.  Lets just say it was pretty much the best thing ever, and the APE course is highly regarded. (some whispers indicate that the club might like to play the ape course EXCLUSIVELY in mendo, assuming we can stay ahead of the vandals).  Speaking of which, the vandals have been trashing the high school (in general) and Mendo course (specifically) about once a week.  What the Fuck???
   In other club news, 7 bewildered souls showed up the Sunday after the APE and played A course.   Jeremy (who BTW hasn't thrown an ace in at least the last 72 far as I know...) won,  Greg (shooting the best score of -6 ) tied with Nate dog,  they had a playoff for 2nd- and I have no idea who won, cause I went home.   This Sunday was B course and Nate Dizzle "who let us use his shit when he wasn't even there and we left chairs in the middle of his showroom and the heater on" Dog beat the shit out of any disc golfer who bothered to show with a -8 below handi!!!  Jeremy and Juballe tied for 2nd, and Rayden was 3rd.  Funny thing was, they had all gone home, so we put the $10 in the ace pot.  Which brings up the subject of, well, what do we do when all the second and third place winners leave before the tourney is over?  some other questions-  Should we keep doing 3 different course in Mendo? and, Can we get an evening tourney in Fort Bragg so more club members can come?  As far as I know, Fort Bragg has 2 pm dubs on Tuesday and 2:30 pm singles on Thursday.  How about an evening or Saturday round?  Just a thought.
   Also, In this weeks Dubs from Ft Bragg,   Greg and Jeremy took down  Chris and Jesse and Dan and Matthew in a close and hotly contested doubles round.  I believe all groups were tied at -7 after 11 holes, but G and the Germ pulled away on the last few holes for the victory.

Thursday, March 29, 2012


With gallant glory and a steady stroke (he he he) the one they call Chenzy played a brave round on Sunday the 25th day of March in the year of 2012. Vin shot an even round on the B course which is nothing to shake a disc at. I beleive he shot 6 under his handicap. Below is a short recap of the after round interview:

Reporter: "So Chenzo, what are you going to spend your winnings on?"
Chenzo: Chenzo is doing the robot dance and singing an 80s ballad mash up.
Reporter: "Excuse me Mr. Koski, what are you going to do wtih your winnings?"
Chenzo: His robot dance becomes more feverish.
Reporter: "I don't have time for this nonesense I am out of here"
Chenzo: Vinny chases the reporter towards the parking lot, while still doing the robot dance while his 80s ballad mash up turns into "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel.

While the other frolfers watch on in amazment Vinny's last words (as he is still chasing the reporter in the distance) "May March 25th now be considered Vince Koski day from here to eternity..ha ha ha ha ha ha ha".

2nd Place=EmmersonMcJimmerson (-2...3 under his handicap...I think)
Best Round of Day=Hemmies (-8...1 under his handicap)

I Just saw that par infinity is doing this up north and thought it could be great for us too!

great way to get very accurate handis and real ratings for our courses, and there is a discount for league members to get a pdga membership


Welcome to PDGA Sanctioned Leagues

— Kevin McCoy

You may already have some sort of local league play or ‘action’ in your area. We are going to make your league better by offering PDGA player ratings to the equation. Chuck and Roger’s rating system is arguably the most exciting part of being a member. It’s always fun to go online and see what your rounds end up being rated. Some area leagues offer pseudo ratings but PDGA leagues are going to offer official ratings that will actually affect your player rating. This is beneficial in many ways;

  • It gives players more rated rounds that equates to more accurate player ratings.
  • It will allow offering handicap events which are popular with recreational players.
  • It helps to determine which division is best suited for players.

I was involved in a very successful club in Tulsa and I really have a strong desire of wanting to help strengthen clubs and leagues. Giving something back to the club is essential to making the PDGA work for them. Here are some of the benefits the clubs will get out of the running leagues.

  • Special Promotional PDGA Membership Discounts
  • ½ of the $1 league fee stays with the league for course improvements, baskets, charities, etc.
  • Exposure and advertising for your league through

Here is how PDGA Sanctioned Leagues are going to work initially. The first phase for 2012 will roll out in March, once daylight savings kicks in. We are offering sessions of 6 to 10 weeks for your league. We are going to start out keeping it simple with basic singles play, but in later phases we will be able to offer other formats.

  • Anyone interested in becoming a league director can contact the PDGA and get a League Director package.
  • It will be a $25 PDGA sanctioning fee
  • The PDGA will provide the league director a League Director Spreadsheet.
  • The spreadsheet will be able to track the results of your league auto-magically.
  • Each league then is able to view results on the league page on

The spreadsheet the League Director will receive will be a simplified TD report in Excel spreadsheet format. It’s a very simple page that just tracks names and scores, for uploading to the PDGA website. And, for the more dedicated TD's that want to input more data it can be used to track more detailed stats like your Birdies, Bogies, wins, losses, etc.

We are keeping it simple at first to make sure we have the kinks worked out. Eventually we will be able to offer many different types of formats that you may be play at your local action.

  • Handicapped leagues
  • Global league where you can compete against players across your state or all over the world
  • Team leagues where teams will to play against other teams in a match play like system
  • We will even be able to offer Doubles leagues and Mulligans

So if you like this idea and want to see the PDGA grow, buy into this plan, and start a disc golf league in your area. I guarantee this is a great path for us to succeed. My belief for true growth of the PDGA is grassroots - the home town recreational players. There are a lot of players that may have family, job, and responsibilities at home that they can’t chase their disc golf dreams every weekend, but are just as competitive. The PDGA leagues are going to provide the platform for the home town hero’s to compare themselves to the big dawgs. Even if it’s just compared by a rating it will be a very beneficial way to build memberships and get more value out of your memberships.

extra extra read all about it

soooo excited for this. lets get a club banner made before this event. and lets get a group site!!

Hosted annually by the United Flyers of Sonoma, The UFOS Pro Am Jam Disc Golf Tournament is held the first weekend in June. This is a “B” tier PDGA and NorCal sanctioned event for both professional and amateur level players that has drawn participants from as far away as Hawaii and Florida. It is easily one of the most popular disc golf events in Northern California.

Now in its’ seventeenth year, the Pro Am Jam this year moves to what we hope will be its’ new home at beautiful Lake Mendocino, a California Recreation Area managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. In this location, we have access to four disc golf courses:

  • Lake Mendocino, South. An 18 hole course fairly close to the lake entrance.
  • Lake Mendocino, North. Currently a smaller 9 hole course, it is in the process of being expanded to 18 holes as well and may evenwill be ready by the tournament date in 2012.
  • Mendocino College. An 18 hole course with multiple tee positions, that is only a short distance from the lake.
  • Low Gap Park. a Mendocino County park with 18 holes located just across from Ukiah High School.

The proximity of these courses give us the opportunity to accommodate more players and perhaps migrate the Tournament to an “A Tier” event at a later date.

The fact that there is nearby camping at a very reasonable rate is another plus for the venue change.
Campsites are $25 per night and eight persons are allowed per campsite. These can be reserved by calling
ReserveUSA or visiting their website.

Because this event fills up early, online registration is stronglyrecommended.

Details for the 2012 Event

We will be using both the North and South Courses for this year’s event. For 2012 we will not be using Mendocino College or Low Gap.

After touring both areas, we have determined that Tournament Central will be located at the Pomo “A” day use site near the North Course. This tournament will be the first time that Mendocino North will be played as a full 18 hole course. The preview we received today assures us that Mendocino North will be a very technical and challenge 18 holes of golf. This area is also closer to the lake.

Are you a U.F.O.S or D.G.O??

As the U.F.O.S. have reserved an entire loop in the Kyen Campgrounds, if you are a U.F.O.S, you have first pick of these sites direct through this page at a rate of $10 per person per night. This area has restrooms and showers. If you wish to camp in the U.F.O.S. reserved area, you mustregister online at this site. The PDGA site online registrations will NOToffer the camping option.

Not a U.F.O.S or wish to have an individual campsite for your family??

If you prefer to make your own camping arrangements, other areas are available at $25.00 per campsite per night through ReserveUSA either through their website or by calling the number listed at the bottom of this page.

Recommended Campsites include:
Kyen Campgrounds (sites 48-60) Next to North Course and to the U.F.O.S. loop (sites 61-67)
Kyen Campgrounds (sites 39-47 & 69-72) further away from the course & tournament central.
CheKaKa Campgrounds (sites 1-13,15,17,21) Adjacent to South Course. Restrooms, No Showers.
There are, of course, other campgrounds at the lake, but they are further away from the action.

W.I.P. Winning In Perfection & Meeting Notes!

Winning In Perfection, or simply WIP, took this Sunday's windy tournament in outstanding fasion as he blasted putts from tail wind, head wind, swiling wind, or whatever wind you could throw at the guy. I played with the guy and he putted in a fearless manner ousting the competition. Nice win Wip! Jeremy took second as he aced (for the first time...just kidding...well, it was probably the first ace he had on Sunday) hole 9 and shot -3.

Meeting Notes:
1. Sponsership/Course Improvement/Alan Carlson/Concrete
Turns out, Alan Carlson only owns 15% of the land east of College of the Redwoods (Ice Bowl land) and the same owners who own the Boatyard Shopping Center own the other 85% of the land. Jim called Alan Carlson and found this out and is awaiting a call from the other owners. Thanks Jim. Keep us posted. Also, Dirka wants to start going around and finding sponsers for tee pads and baskets for WHEN we expand or concrete the Fort Bragg course. The members offered Dirka suggestions and gave him the green light. Also, several members formed a Course Design Crew to "Pimp the Course Out". Those members include: Rye Bread, Dirka, Hemmies, and Hawk. These members are going to come up with designs and figure out an Awesome Course Layout. Vinny helped us estimate that each concrete tee pad would cost about $80.

2. Vandalism to the Mendo Course/Welders
As most of you know the Mendo Course was vandalized about a week ago. Me, Hemmies, and Vindy reset baskets 1 and 18 wtih concrete and Vinny yielded his chainsaw around to improve the stump for basket 18. We need a welder to come help our baskets. Action Plan: Nate Dizzle and Vince are going to talk to Welders they know to see how much they would charge to fix the baskets.

3. Fund raiser for the Mendo Course/Communication with Mendo High
We have talked about having a biggish tournament/fund raiser for the Mendo High course for a long time but we have remained underground but as more and more people are playing Mendo it is time to check in with the school/principal/maintenance. Action Plan: First step: I was nominated to talk to the High School principal just to get an idea of what she thinks about disc golf and disc golfers. I will keep people updated.

4. Westport
Vinny informed us that someone is building a course in Westport. Action Plan: Vinny is going to let us know of the progress.

5. Conduct
As we have talked about for the last several weeks, if someone is drinking alcohol or smoking pot or cigarettes on the Mendo Course or threatening someone, on any course, they can be disqualified from tournament play by either 2 members on your card or whomever is running that tournament.

6. Death to Willits
Let's play Low Gap!

I think I got everything boys but if I forgot something let me know and post it in the comments section. Oh yeah, pizza and pasta was eaten and beer and soda pop was drank!

H=Hemmies won tournament last Sunday shooting an impressive -7 on B Course (1 under his handicap) while Vince took second place.

V=Vandalism. So, I showed up to the high school last night (Friday) at 6ish and ran into the track coach who informed me the school was vandilized the night before. The ass faces pulled up basket 1 and turned it upside down and they broke the welding where the basket attaches to the pole on holes 2, 3, 4, and 7. Basket 7 got it the worst...when I looked at it, it was crooked. Hemmies met me up at the high school and we did a walk around to assess the situation and take pictures of the damage. Does anyone know a welder that can come to the school? The vandals also cut some of the baseball fence, threw the picnic table onto the field and threw the hurdles up in the trees thus it doesn't seem like the disc golf course/community was targeted.

M=Meeting. So, the MCFC is having a meeting on Friday March 16, 2012 at 6pm at the Pizza Factory in Fort Bragg. I hope to see everyone there.

Fantasy Disc Golf

Whats that i say, you heard it. Such a thing exists. I looked into it and have joined a few free leagues out there , and then i thought wouldn't it be fun if we had our own local league. So i figured i would create one. it cost 30 bucks to do a custom private league with more than one tournament. so im figuring a little gambling may be in order. but if i blow thirty bucks no biggie i figured it was worth a try.

I think it will go a little something like this:
Anyone can join our fantasy disc golf league
To do so they need to:
give me or promise to give me next time they see me 10$
and read our blog or someone gives them
this invitation code


then they go to
and under the find leagues tab you enter the invitation code

hopefully i get enough folks on board so i can get my thirty back and then the rest will all get paid out back to the top 30% of the highest point finishers
also there will be some kind of fun trophy for the first place finisher
come join the fun and tell your friends

theres all the info online at

Sunday, March 4, 2012


it is with heavy heart and head hung low that i must announce the death of one of our favorite events. The KOA pro am jam is dead, over , finnish, kaput, for ever. RIP. The owners have killed it without remorse or sorrow for what they have done. these merciless SOB's demanded way to much $$ and put way too many restrictions on the event this year that the UFO's had no choice but to pull the plug. It is such a shame that tournament had been going on for sooo long. but like the phoenix from the ashes of destruction rises a new promise for a even better event on two courses in ukiah.The rumored north coast showdown will be combined with our departed friend to create The UFO'S pro/am jam! It will be held this summer on low gap and lake Mendocino courses.(can you say "please don't roll down that hill"). I feel pretty certain that all the mcfcers will be stoked to have another tourney close by to go to.

Registration Sunday!

The weekly Sunday tourney was held today at the Mendocino High School under sunny, cool and (not surprisingly) windy conditions today. The tourney started slowly, with members registering for the club and receiving sweet MCFC logo discs (think AC/DC) prepared by Erin and David, awesome handmade leather bag tags provided by Jason, and a speech about continuing to respect the club's no smoking and drinking policy at the Mendo course by me. The masses really appreciated the discs and bag tags. Once all the preparations were finally completed, and everyone was close to hypothermic, the 23(!) players assembled went out a played a round of...disc golf! After all the dust settled, discs blown out of baskets counted, and the scores tallied, the red hot Matt F, fresh off his win at the Ice bowl and second place finish last Sunday, walked away with a pocketful of money by shooting a -8, 5 strokes below his handi. Craig took second and was one of the few players to shoot under par. Erin shot a -9 for the best round, the #1 tag, and a pat on the back. Last (but not least) Jeremy aced hole 15, in one of the most quietly celebrated ace's in MCFC history! It was Linsanity! He threw it right Lin to the basket! I guess we all just expect the ace's from him at this point. In keeping with the MCFC blog tradition, I must make reference to my round: I did not repeat as tourney winner (though my name IS Matt) and through sheer will and determination somehow still managed to pull off a a +3, despite birdying 7 holes. That takes serious effort, my friends! Thanks to all who came, joined the club, and gave their money to Matt (not me) and Craig. See you all on the course (for a bag tag challenge!)

Coast Cup Update: We have a new leader!

Go check the scores! Under the Coast Cup page...

Sunday tourney: Register for 2012

This Sunday we will be starting registration for the 2012 year. For $30 you will receive a new bag tag (handmade by Jason) a new disc (hand dyed by Erin) and all the benefits of being a club member (special tourneys, weekly tourneys, and fame and fortune).
We will be playing A course, and bag tags will be distributed to new members based on scores. So come on out everyone!
In other news, I won tourney last Sunday on C course, and Alex V won Thursday singles in Fort Bragg. Also I have tallied the scores from the Ice Bowl for Coast Cup points. I am waiting to hear about one thing more before I post them.

Sunday, February 19, 2012


First off i want to send out some thank yous i prob should of announced at the tourney:

Huge thank you to A.J Buhl who once again outdid himself by raising 1000 bucks worth of stuff for our raffle and ring of fire plus all the little perks in the prize packs for the winners. He also was on the registrations and scorecard tallying. he was working hard the whole time. please take a moment to thank him personally.

Also the Brodys (as we affectionately refer to them by) drove all the way from Washington state to help out. they too were all over the registration and scorecard tallying and thank god they were cause i would of messed it up fast. i would hate to think of trying to handle any of it without their support.

thanks to Erin for handling the flag rentals and the scorecards they were awesome as usual. Matthew and Kara and Rebecca for the lunch. thanks to Chris and Jen V for all the constant support through the whole last month.big thanks to Dennis and hawk and whip and Levi and every one who helped with the tee pads and all the work that went into the course. thanks to Dylan letsinger who sold raffle tix and handled that whole area that raised a amazing 715 dollars. thanks to Jim for setting up signs in the morning to help keep everything smooth on the course

Now I have one huge apology to Anna Caudle who really took third in womens , due to a score keeping error on our part she was not awarded her prize at the tournament. luckily she was able to get it before the night was out

soooo many people were very supportive the whole time and did everything they could to help out. i know i am forgetting to mention people who helped and i hope they will forgive me.

allright time for the big news!!!
we had 84 players and
we raised 2500 dollars in proceeds!!!!!

715 from raffle
80 from ring of fire
bout 155 from disc sales
and the rest from registrations

i believe there is a clause in the rules of running a icebowl that states that a club can keep a small percentage for course improvement. so im hoping i might be able to get some funds for a practice basket out at the course. im not 100 percent on this but i have sent a email looking into it. i think the disc golf community out here deserves it after all the help and good vibes at the tourney

Chris V or C.V. Star

In an unparalleled, uncomprimising, outstanding event...last Sunday February 12, 2012 Chris V. wins Sunday tournament on the mysterious C Course. With family and friends around, he took his bag full of plastic and set out for excellence...which he achieved. Nice win Chris V. Email me a picture of yourself and we will get it up on the blog. My email is: In related news Hemmies shoots -10 (I am not sure handicap score) and gets 2nd (I think). Stay tuned for Ice Bowl and Coast Cup write up and results.

Fellow MCFCers
It was decided after last Sunday's tourney that we will start tomorrow at 12:30, out of reverence for the greatest of all of our country's sporting events - the Superbowl.
12:30 tomorrow, A course.
After we will find out if Madonna attempts to out do Janet Jackson with a wardrobe malfunction to revive her career.

Here Comes the Sun

Under variable conditions the 1st ever "Boontown Throwdown" was held on Saturday and provided some exceptional results.
Rain marked the dawn as frolfers from the coast and the valley journeyed to the Disc Golf Course @The Anderson Valley Brewing Company. Arrive for frolf with beer in barrels fa-la-la-la-la la-la-la. Don us now in rain apparel fa-la-la fa-la-la la-la-la. Tis the season for grinding out pars fa-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la. Very few players could say, for sure, that they accomplished that task.
First round had rain and gusty winds and plenty of bogies. A good rag (one that wasn't dropped in a puddle) and some good traction shoes would prove indispensable on a day like this. After the troops returned to the bar, there were some heads hung down and NO one was claiming outright victory.
The players commandeered the outdoor, covered gazebos of the brewery "Beergarden" and proceeded to fill there proverbial tanks with hot dogs and raw burgers (provided by Davey "the dentist" Stein and grilled by Ryan "howyoulikethatdone?" Magee) and mentally prepared for what seemed like another rain soaked round.
The TDs (Matthew "Igotsomanynicknamesitain'tworthusingonehere" Starkweather and James "Jim" Eldridge) announced the final round and sent the players out for battle. The lead card consisted of Hawk, Jeremy, Ryan and George. To the astonishment of all, the rain cleared, the sun came out and the wind picked up. It was another tough, grind it out round. When all the cards came back, there were still heads down and NO one claimed to have had a decisive round.
The field gathered in the brewery "Tasting Room" as the TDs calculated the scores. The leader card held up... sort of. Leap-frogging up from the chase card, Derrick tied Jeremy for third place, George scored the best handicapped round of the tourney with a -2 and our winner with two -1 handicapped scores was non other than Hawk with a combined -2 total and enough clout to win the special tourney trophy.
Congrats to Hawk on his win and George on his second place finish. Here's cheers for Derrick and Jeremy for grinding it out to third and agreeing to call it a tie. Thanks to Davey D for providing a delicious lunch to grind on. A HUGE Up for our TDs who set up the tourney, added a new hole and organized with the brewery to set up an unprecedented payout of 7 spots in a MCFC special Tournament. Thanks guys.
Let's set our sights on the Ice Bowl and the third installment of the coast cup series.

Boontown Showdown, Bar B Q, and Hems the Wind Tamer!

Boontown Showdown = I am looking forward to playing. I hope it doesn't rain. Everyone bring CTP prizes. There will be a Bar B Q in between rounds for a small fee. Can't Wait!

Bar B Q = Don't bring your lunch...there will lunch at the brewery. This way people don't have to run into town and pay $10 for a sandwich.

Hems the Wind Tamer = Sorry Jody Brody but Hems shot -6 (3 over his handicap) in the 100 mile per hour howlin' wind to win last week's tournament. Ogre came in 2nd and won $10. Alex came in a close 3rd. No one shot under there handicap.

Wip Wins Won

B-Course has a whole new effect on the MCFC sunday disc golf tournament.

After plenty rounds and now more chances for practice, our B-Course tourney is settling into its own rhythm. This sunday, with a strong showing, Wip scored even par (-9 handi) and out-shined the field to win his first MCFC tournament.

Having followed his round from the same card, I am qualified to report on his game. Solid. Equal birdies to bogies and lots of clean pars. Watch out for this guy. Using his patented S-turn-ape-flicky-flick, he parked a few of the trickier shots and set himself up to defend his birdies. Starting out on hole 7, birdie. Tone pole? Huge par save from the dirt mound with no tone. NO TONE! IT'S NOT GOOD! YOU GOTTA GET THE TONE TO CALL IT GOOD! Wrong. Wip landed one on top of the gong and muted the tone with a good par. Through the tree line on 10, no problem. Parked on the Mendo Mando... you guessed it, S-turn-ape-flicky-flick. Off the top-of-the world, S-turn-blah-blah-blah. The hits just kept coming. 14... might've been an ace run. Great round, great play. It might have been the end of the rain (NWS just announced that rain will no longer be a forecast option. They will report only on chance of fog, partly sunny or sometimes partly cloudy. Use of the word "rain" in any forecast will be edited into more accurate verbage) or conditions that allow for wearing shorts 24/7 but Wip showed up and that wins the money in our club. Second place went to the author with a -4 (-7 handicapped ((9 birdies and 5 bogies))). Nice round everyone and I look forward to getting the leather tags ready for play. .......................This just in...................C-Course next week................Tune up time.................get your mind right......................good luck.
aloha, pau

Course Locator Software

Everyone knows about Google earth, but this has better resolution images:

Take a look at Mendo and Fort Bragg courses, also click full screen.

Matthew, maybe you can scout your course ideas from the air?
