Pro Worlds is ramping up...

Postby JHern » Thu Aug 04, 2011 1:20 am

This week, we painted 2011 Pro Worlds on the 1288' fairway of hole 11 at Pinto Lake. And a Keen logo, too. Today we went up in a helicopter to photograph it...

I can see how a smoking ban might be in order. Photo makes me want to go look for some shade.

that section of the course is really bad. pinto is a great, technical course otherwise.

I am quite amused that is doesn't say "disc golf" anywhere. Pretty shrewd marketing, per usual for this game of ours.

I wonder if we are seeing the actual "out of bounds" line with the difference in terrain.

Are there certain landmarks or strategic spots (apart from the occassional helicopter ride) that make the painted sign visible? How often do planes and other air traffic converse over pinto to see this temporary icon?

Not a long enough fairway...

Would have cost more than was budgeted...

PDGA was not involved, it was done by volunteers...

What didn't you see the small text that somebody has sharpied to the grass? I only had to use 8000x zoom to see it :-P
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Wait, WORLDS isn't an acronym for "We Only Really Launch Discs, See?"

i have watched enough ancient astronaut shows to know what's going on here. these primitive keen people are trying to communicate with "space gods" so they will return for some sort of festival the keen people are having. i do have to say this is money better spent than the crane rented for filming 09 worlds. there was also a news clip about this posted somewhere. maybe it was on dgcr.

Just curious to know what the cost was to put that banner in the fairway.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!
