I know there are still two months and two CC's till we get to this one. The difference is, those already have baskets.  I am putting together a list of people who have baskets, and what type of basket it is. The idea is to have 18 good baskets. If we need some "lesser" baskets (cough cough Skill Shot), then we have to use them.

Please tell me your name, number of baskets & type of basket.  This way we can keep the list for when we try to do echo park (maybe), burnett or others.

Thanks in advance, and I will see on the course.

Tony

OK, we now have 6 wks and 3 days till this CC. We have a good start for the baskets that we will need.

The list so far is as follows:

Drew Miller; Mach 3
Dan Hollingshead; Lightning DB-5
Cyrus P. Fuhrman; Chainstar
John Finnegan; DGA Mach Lite
Brad Hartoin; Innova Discatcher Traveler
Mike Kemner; Lightning DB-5
Dave Marlow; Chainstar & One of the clubs baskets, also a chainstar
Adam Jones; Innova

I know Eades has a few that can be used.

I also have a few that I would only like to use in case someone forgets a basket or we do not have enough.
Lou Doench Instep (Plans to add chains)
Tony Vincent Instep (Added chains)

If you count up what we have, we are half way there. We still need some more.

Thanks again to those you who are going to bring baskets.

Here is a map of previous year's course. 


I was getn ready to ask that......thanks mike. I have another question, gonna sound stupid again I'm sure......All of these courses are new to me so I try to get to them b4 we throw a course challenge. If you took this map to rapid run(which I'm assuming is the road that runs off of queen city) would you get a feel for the layout or is it a waste of time? Some course are easy for me blind, like oxford. Others like monroe, I made it out there 3 times the week leading up to the event and it seems to have really helped. So, I guess my only point is.....scouting a park without baskets wouldn't be odd would it? if I have  this map though,lol? Heading to idlewild then to see dan @discndat, tx

Tony, I have a club basket, but won't be at rapid run... I can drop it off at Dave's before hand if he has enough room.

Lawrence,

To answer your question about Rapid Run, you don't really have to see the layout before game day.  You can drive past the park and pretty much see what the terrain is like. Hilly, a lot of trees, very little brush, and only one or two blind shots.  Sort of like a slightly more compact version of Belmont Park in Dayton, if you've ever been there.

For those too new to remember, DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!  Hole 18 is arguably the greatest finishing hole in Cincy DG history....

sounds awesome steve thanks... .yeah....tony  told me I'd look silly throwing a disc around  rapid run park with no baskets, I agreed lol.....then it occured to me, I do that all the time. So,  I am gonna go take a look at it....never been there and its close to me so why not? Probably take a disc and act silly too. Focused on the Dor D for now though, c u soon and ty

There's a link to a map a few messages up the board here which will show you the course from back in 1998; we will be staying pretty close to that. Trees have grown, new ones planted, HUGE sidewalks have been put in so it's changed some, but we will have pretty much the same holes and distances will be close to the same also.

I figured I'd just add the link here:  Here is a map of previous year's course.  www.cincinnatidiscgolf.com/Portals/0/Pages/Courses/coursemaps/RapidRun.gif

Rapid Run Park is at 4450 Rapid Run Rd. in Cincinnati - Price Hill/Western Hills area.

Rapid Run Park, with its gently swelling hills, lovely landscaping, and shady picnic areas, is an excellent place for a family picnic and visit or a nice disc golf tournament. Tall trees shade the picnic tables, swings and slide and make for a few tough disc golf shots,. In case of rain, a graceful stone building provides both shelter and a view of the lake through its arched windows and a beautiful view of shots on hole 18's basket.. That lake is still one of the best places in Cincinnati to try out a toy boat or have your disc fly in when you're playing disc golf.  It definitely is one of the nicest finishing holes in the city.

The paved pathways in Rapid Run Park wander up and down hills, past the shelter, and around the lake and have grown since the last disc golf tournament there. The ball diamonds wait for impromptu games, deliberately kept available for informal use and we hope that doesn't happen on 8/15/09.

Some forty-five species of trees, both native and ornamental, grow on Rapid Run's almost fifty acres. The Guerley Road side of the park has a small wooded area, but no trails. Even though these woods are small, spring wildflowers (trout lilies, toothwort, spring beauty, squirrel's corn) bloom there every April, as they have since before the days when the Indians and pioneers travelled up "Lick Run Valley."

Rapid Run Park and Parkway, at Glenway Avenue and Rapid Run Road, are composed of nine parcels purchased between 1928 and 1930 and one parcel of old Potter's Field property obtained by ordinance in 1934. The area now contains 49.188 acres (approximately 4 acres were transferred to the Recreation Commission in 1963). Called "Lick Run Park" in its early years, it was renamed by the Park Board in 1940. The park's first improvement came in 1941 through the Federal Works Project Administration.

You don't need to worry about "losing" the discs. It's not that deep - it's a wading pool. You can either go in and get your discs and get wet or I think my granddaughter is going to be there and will retrieve your disc for $1. That's what the young Keith's used to do - now they're grown!
