With groups of 4 and the holes loaded, ~3 hours I expect.
If you're thinking of having a practice round, two of you could rattle round in well under two hours

Cyclone 2009

Post by bdga30 » Mon Sep 07, 2009 9:47 am

Thanks to all CDGC, your hard work paid off.
Special thanks to our American friends Val Jenkins, Avery Jenkins, Nat Doss and Jesse, although I may not try his throwing tips!
My enthusiasm for the game has been renewed when seeing the world champion stuck in a bush I managed to avoid all weekend (I didn't avoid all the others bushes, however).

Let's hope we can get more champions across to the UK, its well worth getting as many tips from these top pros.
Great weather, great spirit, left wanting more...

I’d like to add my praise for the Cyclone team for this years event.

Rich has worked like a Trojan to get things ship shape and his efforts were well rewarded! The scout hut was a great venue for sleeping and eating (though less good for toilet flushing….) and our Cousins from across the Pond (and I’m feeling generous, so I’ll include Jesse) were great ambassadors for the sport, they were helpful, polite, and very friendly, a far better advertisement for American disc golfers than certain other individuals I could mention (no names, but Jester once said “ I hope I don’t have to the play with that *expletive deleted* *name deleted*). Although their “British” accents need some work, definitely in the Dick Van Dyke category…..

I had three rounds where we had plenty of laughs, I’d like to thanks Damn Massive, James Luton, Dunc, Scott Fitzgerald, Dave Allacker, Neil Martin, Paul Cripps, and Pikey for pointing and laughing at the right time. And a special thanks to Paul, who played the final round with a screwed back, but kept on going, that’s the spirit!

I’d like to point out that when it came to distance, only the World Champion threw a thumber further than me!

I think Mr Village you will find that we didn't get to have a thumber off and had we have done that I would have destroyed your puny, allbeit accurate effort at the bin. :wink:

Congratulations to all involved in the setup of the event, I had a great time despite being rubbish, it looks like the bottom group of advanced Am might be stolen away from Westy and Village in future, me and Andy Gee seemed quite set there.

Cheers Rich!

You made me proud to be a (somewhat absent) part of the Croydon Crew.

See you soon under less stressful circumstances.

(I wont bother you about Ace Race stuff for a couple of weeks.)
Give a man a driver and he can play disc golf for years.
Give Stewart a disc and he'll lose it the same day!
