Sam, I really want you to add the application that will tell me whether I like it or not...I'm done making decisions, I want technology to do it for me...in the year 2525....
If man is still alive, If woman can survive...
Hath this whole world been mired in madness?
Remain ye men of faculty complete,
Of full arithmetic and prudence fair,
Attending to our noble bond and contract?
Or does here stand the last remaining man
To give a fig for rules and order yet,
No noble savage, but a stave unbroken
Who loves the law and bids it no misdeed.
Iíll not be bent to lawlessness. Mark it nought, if we be men of honour.
The first Slosh event of the year is about 1/2 full at this point. If you want to get yourselves one of the awesome hoodies the city of North Bonneville is putting up please make sure you get yourselves signed up ASAP. Remember, this is the only Slosh event that will be getting these sweatshirts, so if you want one... this is your only chance.
We plan on having enough hoodies on hand to cover all of the players, but the only way we can guaranty your size is if you get yourself signed up by Thursday! Otherwise, you'll get your choice of whatever is left over... whether it fits or not.
PS: Many thanks to the City of North Bonneville for stepping up and buying these for us crazy disc-golfers.

Jeff, Kel, Chris and I went out and played today and I had a couple of comments about the course.
1. The flow is better but I still think the walk from 6-7 is huge and not obvious without a map or signs. I would personally make hole 2---> hole 1, and then hole 1 would be hole 6. The initial walk to the starting hole which would be the current hole 2 is the largest walk but then the flow from 6 to tee one makes more sense then 6 to 7. Trails are being created from the current basket to the next tee but in some cases it was difficult to figure out were to go and we had to refer to the map on our phone. After the first round it was more obvious.
2. We had a lot of nasty spit outs on the baskets today. Several times the chains would part and putters would hit the pole and then come back out. When we looked at the chain configuration it appears to either be set up to allow the pole to be exposed on certain angles or the added chains were not installed with the idea of closing off gaps to the pole. I can see this being a really big issue when the wind is really blowing and you have to putt hard to get the putter solid into the chains. Have a look at the added chains when you are out there and see if it makes sense to you.
It was a beautiful day out there today and again not very much wind. I think the temp hit in the 60's out there as we were all over dressed and warm throughout the two rounds that we played.
We are in the process of making signs and a large course map as well as maps to be placed in a kiosk. There are only two of us doing all the work at the course and we both work full time jobs. My goal is to have all the bugs worked out by early spring. I appreciate and encourage all comments as it makes my job easier and shows me ideas I might not otherwise see. I personally have not had a single spit out, but then again I am a hyzer putter. I know what you are talking about with the chains and was waiting until the comments from TDG started rolling in. Very minimal problem with a very easy fix. As far as the walk between hole 6 and 7, I hear what you are saying. I think or some of the walks at pier and hornings and feel it to be quite minimal. I wanted hole 1 to be obvious and right at the parking lot. We had thought of making hole 2 into hole 1 early on but wanted to keep hole 1 and hole 18 right by each other and near the parking area. There are a couple of congestion spots as im sure you noticed. Again, I tried to ease those as much as I could but could only do so much. Lucky for us Bonneville is a low congestion park and 99% of the time it works just fine. Thank you for your comments. I do really appreciate them. Justin Gross
