The Cave!!!!!!

Postby bobosun on Sat Jan 28, 2012 9:26 pm

Was that fun or what!! I've been playing now in 5 decades, been to 7 World championships, been to the Japan Open 3 times, but playing in 'the' cave for the first time then playing some pick up volleyball with your friends is right up there with one of the best disc golf experiences one could have. Thanks to everyone for a great Ice Bowl at West City & fun at the cave. Can't wait for more.

I agree 100%! The cave was a total blast! I think there is talk about this becoming a Friday evening possibility on a regular basis. There is also talk about course exspansion. I think we also might need to organize a innaugural cave event...maybe a tag shuffle or something.
Hoppy 2013!

I was super honored to be the first person to tee off at the first ever open to the public game on this course on Friday the 20th. Everything about the experience was just the coolest and I felt like a real pioneer (probably because I had to scout out and find everything in the pitch black - as nobody had turned on any lights or put up any signs yet at that point - awesome). Mark also asked me to put the course up on DGCourseReview.com... so I did. http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=5055#

Thanks again to Mark Dudenhoeffer for making this possible.

Played again tonight and had a blast again. Even nailed a 100' putt for a birdie on 8.

HOWEVER!, I am very, very disappointed in a good deal of disc golfers right now :evil:

On my first round, I picked up and bagged about 60 beer cans that were left all over the course from last Saturday. The owner of the course and his right hand man were significantly less than thrilled with it. To add insult to injury, there were several other groups playing CCUDGC tonight and on my second round, I picked up another 10 COLD beer cans... and another 6 on my third round.

YOU PEOPLE HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! What is perhaps the coolest thing to happen to disc golf in the area is barely getting started and you already want to ruin it by pissing off the owners of this place by leaving your trash everywhere? They are now talking about charging a $1.00 deposit per beverage that you don't get back unless you bring back the can or bottle to the concession stand when you leave... to see if that fixes it or they'll have to get more drastic. In case anyone is confused, the white barrels are NOT trash cans... that's why they are sealed shut. They are NOT there to use as a table to leave trash on either.

They also apparently caught somebody tonight taking a piss out in the cave instead of using the porta potty. COME ON! This course has only been open to the public 4 days and we've already got the owners thinking negatively about us.

I want to make sure that everyone understands that I'm not shaming everyone, just those who are working extra hard to try to ruin this for the rest of us.

A BIG thanks to the guys from the Sharpshooters for coming out and bringing the basket lights. Those are awesome.
