>>what is a ring of fire
It's a competition used at tourneys as a sort of side-game to win a basket or some other prize. Everybody that enters the competition will stand in a ring around a basket at the same distance. The organizer will say "go" or "fire" or whatever, and then everybody will attempt to throw their putter into the basket. Everybody that makes their putt moves on to the next round. As the rounds progress you move farther and farther back from the basket until only 1 person makes their putt: they are the winner.
Here's a video of a ring of fire event:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIbG3IWk3zU
>>and what is a tag (bag?) challenge?
When you sign up for the RCF you will get a mini-marker disc with a number on it. The numbers increment by 1 as each person joins the RCF. When you play with another RCF member, you can play the round as a tag challenge. The winner of the challenge gets to keep the mini-marker disc with the lower number. At the end of the RCF year (in October usually, I think) you get to keep your final bag-tag, and new ones will be issued to the members that pay their dues for the next year.
>>is it kircher or kirchner park?
No clue, never played there.
>>is there a place here for people to exchange numbers to expedite the process of setting up spur-of-the-moment games? (a members only forum perhaps?)
Don't think so
>>am i the only shmuck in the stldgc-ish group without a prober bag?
>>is there a cheaper place than johnny mac's in the stl area to buy discs (or a fancy bag)?
The gateway store next to JB would probably cut you a deal, if you're interested in buying gateway discs. The club also has discs for sale, at a discount to RCF members.
If you're really particular about disc weight and color and model, I'll suggest http://www.discgolfcenter.com
. They have free shipping, and I usually get my orders from them w/in 4 or 5 days. Their prices are also pretty competitive, as in cheaper than johnny mac's. To top it off, each $100 dollars you spend on your account will get you an additional %1 off of future orders. That discount is permanent, and the $100 doesn't have to be spent all at once. Say you make 4 orders for $25 each. From that point forward, every other order you make from that website will have a 1% discount. After you've reached $200 on your account, it's a 2% discount. This can continue until your account has a 10% discount on every order. Considering the shipping is free and you have full control over color and weight of what you buy, it's pretty hard to beat.
>>what kind of putter do you get with the stldgc membership?Gateway Voodoo
(I'd post a link to the disc on gateway's website, but it's not listed yet... what's the deal with their website anyway? It's never updated)
>>does miller have great taste or is it less filling?
No clue, I don't drink.
