Only 4 weeks to go.....

Post by Charlie Mead » Wed Feb 27, 2013 9:23 pm

We have reached well over the 21 player level for the 21st Mull DG tournament. Actually at 30.
Only 4 weeks to go until I leave for Mull -
For those who haven't seen it check out the group photo on FB from the first event in 1992. Will try and get it (or another) uploaded here...if not look out for a complete set for all those coming this year!

HELP - need photos and information!!

Post by Charlie Mead » Tue Mar 12, 2013 10:53 pm

Dear All,

I have a huge gap in the records for Mull from 1999-2004. Can you help? Were you there?

Even if you have no record of results or any photos - please look though - let me know if you came and what you can remember - apart from Derek winning of course.

2001 was Foot and Mouth year -
2002 and 2003 I have results from back issues of In Flight by working out the positions from the Powerstats Table (pre-Open/Am separation).

But have no photos from that time and no verifiable results from 1999, 2000 or 2004. Any back copies of InFlight you have lying around would be worth looking at!!

Thanks to Angus, Andy C, Martin Fredrikson and others for photos.......

Let me know.....trying not to let history go by.....but it just keeps on coming!

I'm finally getting my posterior in gear and making some plans...

I'll be travelling up to Mull on Thursday 28th, staying at Dervaig village hall, then hanging around until Wednesday before heading down to Glasgow for Rosshall Open and then on to Burnlaw. So far I'm on my own in the car so if anyone could use a lift or wants to offer me one, do get in touch! In case you didn't know I live in Nottingham so if you're way down South I may not be able to offer a door to door service.

Also, I'll be getting the trophy engraved, hopefully this weekend, and to prevent howlers; can anyone confirm that Derek won in 2011?

According to the trophy you won it in 2010 (name spelled wrong!) - did you win it two years running?

The Book of Mull

Post by Charlie Mead » Tue Mar 19, 2013 9:54 pm

Dear All Mull Veterans and Virgins....

I am hoping that the link below will take you to my Flickr page and the slideshow for The Book Of Mull..... 21 Years of Disc Golf on the Beautiful Island.

Thanks to all the photographers who have contributed over the years - Enjoy.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/42790678@N ... 8127/show/

If you know how to use Flickr then you can find all the tags/titles to each picture which will tell you the year of each photo. We are still short of some and will add to the Book in its final version in the future. Meanwhile we hope you like what you see.....

The Book of Mull - Disc Golf in the Kingdom

Post by Charlie Mead » Thu Mar 21, 2013 10:07 pm

The Book of Mull is now available for everyone to see on the website - via Flickr. Also available on my FB page. Thanks very much to Nige for making this happen. This years photos are to be added to complete the book but we thought those who have never been might want a look at what has been happening over the past 21 years.

Thanks to all the photographers - Angus, Tom Lowes, Rene Westenberg, Martin Fredriksen, Del and Pru and Gremlin Napier from the early days.

Individual credits coming your way once I have worked out how to operate the info bar on my iPhoto/Flickr sites!

WEATHER UPDATE

Post by Charlie Mead » Sun Mar 24, 2013 4:12 pm

For all of you keeping an eye on the weather in the north a quick update from Gremlin -

All roads are open to Oban and Lochaline.
Mull has had about half an inch of snow which has gone already.
Storms were at Force 11 but minimal impact.
No problems getting around the island.

Forecast for next weekend is clear but cold - so bring all your woolly jumpers!

Safe travels to you all. We leave Tuesday pm and due to arrive via Lochaline - Fishnish Ferry on Wednesday late pm.

The Course Map and all Hole Maps are now up on the Mull Website. They are in both JPEG and PDF formats and available for you to print as caddy book - BUT - we would prefer you to just download them to your phones or iPads if you have the technology.

For those not familiar with Mull there are two courses - The Classic Blue Course and the White Course. The way that Nige Williams has designed the course map and tee-signs makes it clear which is which as both courses share some holes, some tees and some baskets...

.....But just in case, if there is any confusion please let us know. This is the first full version and has taken a year to create. We will be adding the distances and elevations before play starts on Saturday morning. Then all the Tee-signs will be re-modelled onto permanent plastic/aluminium bases and re-installed for next year......

Congrats to Nige for all the work on the designs - we are now at three full course and hole designs - Beaminster, Essex and Mull - so if you want yours done let Disc Zoo know.

Excited to see that the White course will also be in action this year! What is the order that we'll be playing the courses over the tournament?

Also, possibly worth pointing out that British Summer Time starts on Sunday 31st March - so an hour less sleep going into the second day!
