Summer's Desire

The Highbridge trip being kaiboshed is a let down. Don't let anyone let you think otherwise. The trip signified the whole of my disc golfing expectations this summer.

But with the aforementioned doom of the trip its time to "move along, move along like you know we do".

Therefore, I have set an alternative goal to be reached by summer's end: to increase the number of courses I have played up to 20. In talking to "The Midrange King", we decided to mull through the courses we have played. Pap ran somewhere in the low double digits and I think I landed at about 16. This makes the total number of actual new courses I need to be four, a very attainable number.

Though of course, this may not be as easy as one may suppose. With half the summer already over, I should get cracking on this new objective toot-suite. But with Highbridge out of the picture and all the other major courses in the area already under my belt, the selection begins to thin. Even the Twin Cities, a very disc golf friendly locale, will not provide what I need as I will not head back up there til summer is over.

Two (maybe three) possibilities remain:

1) Denver - I have planned a trip to Denver at the end of the summer to check on a graduate school. Hopefully this will provide at least a couple courses to add to the list.

2) South Dakota - In light of the "Highbridge Incident", an alternative journey on the SD Circuit may add one or two more, though of course, the Sioux Falls and Yankton courses are already notched.

3) (maybe) Omaha - I have been meaning to get to Omaha for some time now. I have played Seymore and Cunningham before. But hopefully there is another one around town. And plus, there is always Council Bluffs.

So there you have it. My goal, the difficulties in attaining it and my plan to overcome those difficulties. If you would like to join in the festivities, let me know.

Cause after all...
you're my wonderwall,
