For the record, everyone involved in this Kicks Ass (especially you Tim)!!!
Sara and I will be down there the weekend prior to due a little tune up on the course and I will be trying my best to coax some salmon out of a local river. Not feeling like cooking, but if sucessful i'll donate a fillet to the TD and his minions for all their much appreciated efforts!
As far as camping goes Mom is hoping to keep most of it OB (Over by Bob's) but I'm sure exceptions can be made if arranged.
Great to have you back Gilberts, you were missed last year!
Since we're getting off easy this year, anything else I can help with please let me know. I'll be down there Wed the 8th.
I hated missing the 'Burner, but my wedding held priority!
Like always we are really looking forward to it!
We have a camper trailer this year, will there be room for us to set up shop?
A bad day on the golf course is better than a good day at work!
One week to go and things are coming along nicely for the Earner. Chris Schuler is making up some sweet glass trophies for the first place winners, I haven't personally seen his work, but several people have told me he does excellent stuff (I think the word "amazing" may have been used too). Louis Bontempo (Bucket Designs) is making some cool patches for the player packs--I've seen the prototype, and they look badass.
Looks like we'll be playing two rounds, one of 22 holes, and a second of 18 with alt. pads/placements where available. Still have yet to finalize the layout for glow golf, but it'll likely be a 9 or 12 hole layout (sticking to the more open holes for less broken ankles).
Here is the official player's list I have so far, still have a good number of people who have shown interest but haven't committed:
"Eric "Old Bones" "Glowbeard" "Whatever" Mesford"
Good time to announce that I have just created Alt. #18. That's the one with 195' shot under the vine maple arch. Instead of going back to the left to get to the tee from #17, you go back and to the right. It's about 215', though I haven't measured it for the record yet. It is a straight, narrow, shot designed to be the midrange challenge hole.
Rock your Buzzz, Buzz your Roc.
I will place a measuring tape on the basket and put up a board so that the Innova, Discraft, and also-ran-brand, shooters can record their CTP distances. The best shot of each brand gets a prize. The best of the best brand gets something really cool, and the best of the runners-up labels get booby prizes. We'll get that Roc/Buzzz thang sorted out.
Hey, this is the biggest, hungriest, of the old tire baskets so I will expect the grand prize to go to an ace, maybe even a play-off of the acers.
Me and a couple of locals tapped that virgin yesterday. Them two guys bounced off of trees, and I hit the green and birdied from 15 feet. If a noodle arm such as I can get that close... (FLX Buzzz, of course.)

The Corporate Empire is NOT a Constitutional Republic...
...but it plays one on TV.
Sounds great Bob, looking foward to seeing everyone on friday. I'm heading down about noon on friday, might even make it in time for the doubles. Barrett and Sean, might or might not make it in time for the doubles, Barrett making it on time depends on when his wife unlocks his chain. Ol' Bob hopefully you still have the disc I left behind at last years furnburner, don't even remember what it was, except it was almost new (maybe), Dam short term memory problems.
As Tim mentioned, I'll be holding a Throwbot Throwdown at the Mud. For those that weren't at the 666 Terror Creek event, this is your chance to enjoy a little tradition brought with us from Virginia.
ThrowBot doubles is essentially played by an "operator" and a "robot". The "robot" is given a blindfold and directed to the first teepad, at the teepad they are spun around several times so they don't know where the hole is. The "operator" then directs them any way they want (talking, physically moving them) on how to throw the next shot AND guides them to safely get to the next lie! If you want a little sample, check out this youtube video starting at about 2:00 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OE-RyLrlmQ
To keep this short and to try to fit in a bunch of teams, each player is going to get 1 hole where they play as the operator and 1 hole where they play as the robot (2 holes total). I'll be running this during the lunch break and any time players have available on Saturday including after the singles rounds until dark.
It will cost $1.00 per team and I will again be working on a pair of trophies to give out to the winners
So, maybe I was way off base with my "no harm, no foul," call. It turns out there is plenty of room at the inn for Baby Jesus' virgin mother (or even disc golfers). Hey folks, fill the place up.
I do apologize for scheduling on this date, however to say it is a "foul" is kinda out of line. We made the date because it was the date available to us. I feel that eastern Or/Wa need quality events as much as the PDX metro area. And I hope your event is AMAZING Tim. and I Hope Ol' Bob can relax a little bit with the event out of the way
