24 BASKETS ARE SITTING AT MONROE STORAGE BUT THE PARKS GUYS ARE NOT CAUGHT UP ON SOME OTHER THINGS IN THE CITY BUT PROMISE TO GET OUT SOON. THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF WORK BY GCFDA MEMBERS ON HOLES 1-9 AND SEVERAL TIMES WE HAVE BEEN OUT THERE MARKING THE HOLES DESIGN BUT KIDS KEEP RIPPING THEM DOWN. WE FINALLY JUST MARKED TREE BY TREE AND IT SEEMS TO BE STAYING UP.

I am second guessing myself on some things about the course and ask this question. Please respond with what comes to mind.

The first time you played disc golf did you have some success when playing?

If you first time EVER playing you went out and played say IDLEWILD with little success. Would you be hooked and play more or say MAN I SUCK AT THIS?

I recall my first time playing was WINTON (like many others) and thought I did pretty good and couldnt wait to come back. I think mostly because I had some sucess.

I know we all want a course that is TOUGH but at what cost. Will it cost us some new players??

I feel Monroe will be fairly balanced but may be a little tough for newbies.

Im curious to all responses. Even you Keith..hehe

NICE.....

I really appreciate all the input and helping me relax about it. There has been so much effort put into this course by so many. Letting someone down is not something I like being associated with. We assured Monroe "If you build it they will come".

With all the input (mostly arguments) by so many GREAT players and all MEMBERS of the GCFDA. Im confident we got a winner WITH WHAT WE HAVE TO WORK WITH.

Liz Im starting to feel a little guilty about Christmas Eve. I dont wanna take any thing away from God's B-Day. To those who have PM me about working XMAS EVE ... LETS PLAY IT BY EAR...

PS IM GOING TO THE PARK RIGHT NOW AND SNAP SOME SHOTS FOR THE BOARD.. MAYBE BREAK OUT THE CHAIN SAW IF ANY ONE WANTS CALL ME 513 265-0112

Paul and I went to another Monroe parks board meeting last night. They have started chipping away at the course and great progress is being made. The big discussion was the tee signs. They are asking for lots of sponsorship. These signs by FAR may be the nicest signs ever to be put on a disc golf course (not kidding). The rate is $350. per sign and the sponsorship last 2 yrs and renewal will be $100.00. It may seem pricey but they are very nice signs and will be seen by many. Im hoping the local DG Clubs will step up and sponsor a sign and spread the word to some of their employers. If you know anyone I can call on that would be a good prospect let me know and I will call them, or if you want to sponser a sign yourself again just let me know.

Thanks in advanced for your help

$350 isn't that bad. I believe banklick was raising $500 per sign for the new six holes. That might have included tee pads also but not sure.

The $350 was a price determined by the park. Some signs that exist in more highly traveled areas will go for a higher premium. I don't recall the exact numbers - I think they make a little off it but not as much as you'd expect.

The signs are going to be a wonder to see. Very tough material. The parks department really did their research into what is available. They definitely wanted something better than other courses and had little interest when we explained how the ones at Airy were done.

297 dollars was for the 2 signs (LASERCUT, COLOR AND SUPER THICK)....1 for the hole design and details of the hole, the other was for the sponsors name. Both are the highest quaility they could find and are asteticly pleasing to the park board. (MOST IMPORTANT) They also wanted to use cedar post that added another 80+ dollars to each hole. (SEEMED CRAZY PRICED SO I LOOKED AT LOWES TODAY AT CEDAR MAILBOX POST THAT WERE 30 BUCK EACH) However they seemed to be very peticular about the look they wanted so Paul and I LET IT GO. Besides if they are this way about signs how do you think the course will be maintaned. (protect the investment and the sponsors $$)
Hopefully wasnt your throwing shoulder Keith. I would love to give ya a personal tour when you get better.

For example, #3's basket better be cemented in pretty good, being 40 ft. away from that apartment complex.

Maybe we should put tracking chips in the poles so stolen baskets can be tracked down.

We could just advertise that chips are embedded and hope the potential swipers are buffaloed into thinking they will be tracked by BIG BROTHER in the sky.

If you sitting around reading this you could be out at Monroe Park at 2 today and help trim some more FAT out of the woods..If anyone has a truck there are some JUNK items in the woods we need hauled out. (I HAVE A PLACE TO HAUL TO)

Yeah, I saw some of the teepads last weekend, they look great. People will be pleasantly surprised when the course finally opens.

There is actually some green stuff growing in the newly-cut fairways in the woods. Not sure it's grass, but it looks pretty cool anyway.

Hole 11- 300 ft. straight up hill, 15 ft. fairway, 15 ft. ceiling....NICE!

Talk nice to that ground cover Stevo... and float over it without touching it!!!
It is likely from bird-dispersed seeds.
