Bruce Springsteen, monkey off backs, Tobey Stein, and Adam Scott

I would like to personally thank Bruce Springsteen, the monkey that jumped off my back, Tobey Stein, and Adam Scott for my win on Sunday April 14, 2013.  Bruce Springsteen?  Why you may ask...It appears that anytime Davey D listens to Bruce Springsteen the day of tournament he either wins or comes in second.  I would like to name the monkey Ralph and thank him for getting the FUCK off my back yesterday and allowing me to win a Mendo Tournament.  Tobey Stein is my baby sister and it was her birthday yesterday and the vibes were flowing back and forth. 

What do David Stein and Adam Scott have in common? 

1.  They both won a tournament on Sunday April 14, 2013.
2.  There are 3 total syllables in their first and last names.
3.  The both have the astrological sign of Cancer.
4.  They are both very handsome Caucasian men. 
5.  They are both skinny.

Somewhat of a conversial ending came into play yesterday when Big Arm (not to be confused with Big Foot) AKA Hems threw OB (or is it) in the parking lot and he wasn't sure if the parking lot was OB on A course.  He played a provisional (he played the hole as if it weren't OB and scored a 3) and played it as OB and scored a 5.  This would have made a difference in the handicapped tournament becuase we would have tied for best handicap score at -3.  Who was at our last meeting?  Not at the small course design meeting but the meeting prior where we decided to make the parking lot and tennis courts OB?  The question the parking lot OB on A course or just B and C and is it written down in the meeting notes?

New Record...I think.

For goodness sakes will someone put a picture of Erin Hemmings on the blog?  The dude broke the C course record and shot -10 on a half dry/half rainy C course round on Sunday 4/7/13. 

Aftermath = House (who shot an impressive even round) and Hems tied for handicap round and played a 4 hole playoff only to see Hemmies win it on hole 9 A course.  The hole before this (A course hole 8) House threw a turn over shot that Schmanged out of the chains.  Parks, Tups, myself, Hems, and House heard this wonderous noise and ran up to the basket only to see the disc NOT in the basket but laying right next to it.  Nice shot House!

P.S. The week before = B course doubles round...Tups and Davey D took down Parkweather and Baseball Jessi.  I forgot the exact scores??

cr course update

Hi guys, i met with the dean at the college the other day, he wanted to let us know that even though the future of the college is uncertain he believes the course is safe. He thinks that the three possible scenarios are this. 1 the college stays open and they lease out the western buildings to the montessori school, in which case there would be a fence built by those buildings that would probably not affect the course very much. 2 the college is sold to another school institution like mendocino college  which would probably not affect the course either, or 3 the school just shuts down then the course would be fine too. He also wanted to just make clear the work the club has done out there for whoever is in charge in the future so they know all that we have done out there. i have sent him a letter detailing all the improvements we have done. including the new baskets. so if by some off chance whoever is in charge decides they don't want a course there we will be able to remove the new baskets, i believe if that did happen they should be offered to the sponsor that paid for them first along with the picnic tables that the platinum sponsors paid for as well.
Also he agreed to make the club the official "stewards" of the course. Which means that MCFC via the fort bragg course design and maintenance committee make the decisions out there. any major changes to the property will still need to be cleared with the dean or whoever is in charge, I think that this is great because it sets a standard hopefully to prevent random people from going out there and chopping a tree down they don't think should be there or whatnot and it gives more recognition to our club.

also I will be gone a lot this summer as usual so i would love it if some people could step up and handle some improvements out there. Please anyone who thinks they could find some time contact me, there are a lot of projects to be done out there from big to little, and i would love it if we could keep the ball rollin out there, also there are still tee sign sponsorships available, 150$ gets you or your business name on a tee sign and we could really use some more $ coming in so if you have any ideas that would be awesome

In the aftermath

May 9, 2013

No one knew it would come to this.  After the first strike, everyone thought it would be over.  It wasn't.  After the second strike everyone thought there would never be an over.  They were right.
Under the cover of disc towels and rain jackets, one man persevered.  If it weren't for his training and experience in hucking plastic discs around in the rain, all of humanity would be lost.  From under their own noses, the provocateurs were destroyed with a Blizzard Destroyer armed with an impact triggered nuclear device the size of a dime.  With the leaders out of the way our hero was left with only the multitudes of soldiers roaming undirected and unrestrained and un-unarmed.
"Beware of the depth charges dropped from enemy John-Boats."  The words remind him of the last time he saw a friend alive.  Diving for his protein, he finds more dangers from above than down below.  The sharks are his friends.  They don't hunt him.  They don't wish him ill.  They just feed and he just avoids them.  Life would be so simple if it were that easy.
Opening his bag he sees only 12 Aviars left.  One wizard (they suck anyway) and all the Blizzy he would need to restore freedom to this, the fallen country.  With his discs armed and ready for anything, he sets out into the guts of the enemy's encampment...

The FB course should retain shot variety throughout the changes and improvements being made. Support is needed in modifying 3 of the original front 9, as well as 1 Icebowl hole to all have mandatory left to right or straight flight routes. The old back nine is not viable anymore, but these mando shots will help replace awesome holes like 11 and 15 from the old back nine.

Tone pole positions will also attempt to balance shot types and may include 2-3 additional holes from what is shown on the map.

Ukiah Sun Bowl

The weather was prime, the wind was scarce, and "the coast/MCFC" came to play.  It was an absolute beautiful day and shortly after tee off, I was warm in my puma pants and skull cap.  I quickly put on my ball cap and finished the round one over which was tied with Eric Langton but 4 strokes back of the one they call Levi who shot a hot 1st round of -3.  David Guzman took my card at 4 under.  The phrases I heard based on my round/shots at low gap were:  "Davey D, too hot", "you almost aced it and then it was gone down the hill", "Davey D, nice putt/par save".  3 bogeys, 2 birdies, and the rest pars was my round.  Coming back to tournament central with neither my head held high or my head held low I learned that Lt. Dan/Dan the Man was atop the Advanced Division at 6 under.  The word, "BAGGER" was thrown around quite a bit but who am to say.  A quick lunch and the second round commenced.      

Shorts and a Boonville t-shirt was the atire for the second round.  I quickly learned I was on the chaser care with Langton, Dirka, a Ukiah guy named Ben, and a Ukiah guy named Donald.  I must say that Dirka putted very well.  The phrases that I heared based on my shots were:  "Too hot", "Oh, shit its down the hill and out of bounds", and silence.  The second round we played every hole at a different tee location making it harder for some and easier for others especially if you have a thumber.    Well, 4 over wasn't what I hoped for but that is what I got especially after going out of bounds on a hole and scoring a 5P.  Anyways, the hightights of the MCFC were:

Levi took 2nd place in Am 2
Erin Hemmings took 3rd place in Pro and
Lt. Dan/Dan the Man took 1st place in Am 1

I forgot to mention that Dan the Man aced hole 18 on the second round and was thouroughly congratulated by Ukiah folk and Coast folk.

Whoever wants to fill in the gaps (get it-low gap) over the winners or there own round please do so.  Lets go MCFC...lets represent for the FORT BRAGG ICE BOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ten Mile Revival

Last Saturday, mendo coast disc golfers were treated to the first installment in about a year of the "MCFC Special Tourney".  Hawk Stevers spearheaded an effort to create a safari course on private property up the Ten-Mile River.  This has been the fourth (correct me if I'm wrong) safari course used in special tourney play.  The first being Erin's "Pond Course" followed by my "Joey Memorial 2-par", followed by the Mendo "APE" and now we have the "Ten Mile Revival".  I LOVE THIS SHIT!  Let this be a revival of the Special Tourney in all its glory.  We have fun tournaments on the horizon and lots in more in development. 

The Ten Mile Revival course used the topography of the land to create tough putts, the tightness of the trees to shrink the available birdie window and designed OB to brutalize the scores. 

I was stoked to be out playing a new course in our backyard with the mendo/fort bragg regulars.  There was a whole new bag of shots needed to score on the revival set-up and two rounds just wasn't enough.  I bet I'm not the only one who wants a few more runs at that island.  Let's support any efforts to pursue the use of that land and anywhere else our club can find to set up temporary courses.

Thanks Hawk and anyone else that helped in the setup and breakdown.  Add your TMR accounts on the comments.

Highland Springs Ice Bowl

    In a flash of deviance, I decided to enter a tournament at a course I had never played.  Considering that Highland Springs is widely considered the first "Disc Golf Course", I chose to abandon caution and enter for the experience. 
    In conversation I had learned that the course offers technical tree shots, albeit short ones, thumber opportunities as well as some wide open hucks.  In play I learned all of these things and more.  With pins in their long positions, my best drives ended up at the short placement and left 40+ feet to the basket.  I underestimated the need for a good roller.  I say good roller because I also saw errant rollers causing damage on the score card.  If a player had confidence and accuracy in their roller, they could shave 3 or more strokes off of their score.
    After one round of play, I felt calm, collected and ready to improve with a new set of tees and what looked like the pins being moved to shorter positions.  All this was twisted by a rumor that we would be playing round two as a doubles round.  This was not met with enthusiasm but the decision was based on hours of light in the day.  Round one would be payed out based on one score and round two doubles would have a separate payout.  Teams were chosen based on round one performance.   The lowest scoring A-pool would be teamed up with the highest scoring B-pool.  I have never played in a tourney like this, but it was fun.  If you watched my team, you might have had a hard time figuring out who was the A and who was the B.  My partner had a cannon for an arm.  He out drove me on the huge hyzer shots the new set-up allowed for.  Although I would have preferred a second singles round with players who scored the same as me for the first round (I wanted to see what they shot and get some different looks at the course), I really enjoyed the looseness of a doubles afternoon round.  I was allowed to go for strange shots and run putts that made me grind my teeth in the first round. 
    All in all the trip to Lake County was well worth it.  I was inspired to play the course Tom Snyder made famous.  Here's to the "Steady Ed" in June and here's to the MCFC showing up and playing solid disc.
   -Aloha, pau.

Fort Bragg course improvements

Hi guys,
i sure had fun up north for the holidaze, i got to see some great music, go snowboarding in deep powder, and hang out with family and friends. Now i  am back and moving full steam ahead with the course improvements and ice bowl preparation. I am trying to do both these things at once so i sure could use some help. i would really like to get some if not all of the new tee pads in before the icebowl, which means if you are currently trying to help get sponsorships now is the time to collect $ asap. big news is that the windjammers from Stockton have already sent $$ to sponsor a tee pad, if ya see krash or get a chance to thank them on facebook that would be awesome. i will also be needing help to do all this work so please let me know when u might be available. we will be working out there a lot in the next few weeks to make the course cleaner and better than it has ever been. i will update this post often to let you know about who is sponsoring and when we will be working out there
