Title: New Dynamic Discs Store
Post by: ptinkc on January 27, 2012, 05:46:55 PM
Hello everyone its Pete Cashen and I would like to clarify all of the rumors. I would like to announce the New Dynamic Discs Store coming to Kansas City! The Store will be located behind Oklahoma Joes in the Strip Mall to the East. The physical address is 2854 W 47th KCK 66103.
We will have a Grand Opening on March 9th and then the next weekend the KCFDC and Dynamic Discs will put on the Kan-U- Wyco. Dynamic Discs will be running at least 10 events in the metro area this year. The list is being put together now and we will release it soon. This will benefit the club through revunue generated. Dynamic Discs and your new local store will be donating a disc every week to every league this year for a give away.
There are several club members involved in the store Jeremy Rusco a club member, Scott Reek ( a 10 year club member), Ted Kieth and Myself.
We have been waiting to Offcially announce to make sure all the lease agreements are in order.
Thank You for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the club events and in the store!

Yep, glad to see this doesn't resemble a takeover after all. Anyone want to form a welcoming committee and maybe pitch in on a fruit basket or something?

Can't you already buy discs right there at OK Joe's? A little like building a Walgreen's directly across from where a CVS has been for years. But they do it all the time anyway.

i don't understand why it is taboo to talk about another store. if there was a plan fine, let people know. didn't have to wait til you had an address to say dynamic discs are coming to kc. it feels like someones buddy started dating his buddies ex and didn't want to say anything until it was serious. #leftovers

too bad they're not moving near a good bbq joint. oklahoma joe's absolutely sucks. it's too sweet and i'll be damned if the best bbq in kc is from oklahoma.

Actually, this has been common knowledge for a while I think. They just weren't saying when or where until it was a done deal.

I like OK Joe's, but since I don't have a horse in the KC BBQ race, who cares. ::)

At any rate, this just feels like the club has sold out. If the KCFDC is going to be getting all this money from Dynamic DISCS (edited for Tom), they certainly won't be needing mine anymore.

Looking forward to USING the courses that DD will so graciously be helping to "provide". If you hear an airhorn go off in mid-putt-stroke during any of these 10 events, just know that HaterAde is never far away. 8)

Jeez....  free enterprise at work. My guess is that KC is a big enough disc golf town that this ought to be just fine. Options are good. Despite my previous comments, let it be known that in Leavenworth that has both a CVS and Walgreen next to each other, I frequent both places depending on the situation.

What would happen if they announced that they were coming and then the plans fell through? Everyone that was expecting them to come would be pissed. I think that they did everything right in waiting untill it was offcial to post anything.

I will be glad that there is a new store in a different area. This will hopefully get non-disc golfers in that area wondering what they sport is about.

I don't think anyone is complaining about the store or about competition between disc golf vendors.

The whole thing just seems shady as far as how they've been inserted into the club while others were forced to distance themselves from it.

By the way, just so everyone knows, I was asked to start the "Invasion" thread by someone with very close ties to the club's inner workings. There are more people concerned about this move than it may appear to you based on who posts here.
Title: Re: New Dynamic Discs Store
Post by: phisherman_77 on January 28, 2012, 09:14:15 AM
frankly, i am excited because it says that they are putting on 10 events this year.

what always disappointed me here is that good tournaments don't always continue.  there are many tournaments that were running yearly when leslie and i started playing disc golf in town (LSD Doubles, DUI, etc), but many of them have fallen by the wayside because people just get burnt out or have other life commitments that get in the way.

well, guess what?  with all the club elections we've had since then, it's still the same people putting on events and they're STILL burnt out.  having the worlds didn't help that phenomenon at all either.  there isn't any new blood to carry the torch, so the number of tournaments put on the by the club has went down.

i don't think people want to play tournaments any less.  DD brings this to town.  they are probably going to pay a fee per golfer to use the KC courses.  what else do people want?  i just want to have events, and i don't really care who puts them on.  but hey, DD does a dang good job of putting on events.  he seems to know what golfers want in their events. 

DD's arrival in KC shouldn't be met with hushed tones or anything.  it seems to me that anyone that wants to take the financial risks can do so.  who are we to say that he can't do that?

I don't think the club has "sold out" at all in this situation. To my knowledge this really doesn't have anything to do directly with the club anymore than any other outside entity. In discussions about events it has already been made clear that the policy of a per-head contribution to the club will be in place for all events just like the PDGA gets their cut for sanctioned events. DD, DGW, LSDiscs, Gateway and all the other vendors and folks running events know full well the effort that the KCFDC and its members has put forth over the years getting courses in the ground, building relationships with local governments and parks departments and maintaining our courses.

Now, I will say that with the advent of a new store in town it is important  that they know that this forum is not a place to announce sales or do any other marketing except for announcing and promoting events. We've always had a policy of keeping out advertising.... and we also have a policy of no personal attacks...

Actually Kevin it seems more like building a Walgreen's next to a gas station that has a small selection of medicine.

True....  But in this case since drug stores are already all over town and in demand by nearly 100% of the population but DG stores are a more specialized product, having two large stores in the same town is similar to the across the street scenario. At least that's analogy I was going for.

Oh, got ya. It is a little close. But hopefully as mentioned before, DG is big enough in KC to support both.

How exactly do you think the KCFDC is "in bed" with DD?????

 Maybe if you came to a BoD meeting, you could see what our agenda is, each and every meeting, and what we talk about, COMPLETELY open to any and all members... Dynamic Discs are running events, they give per/person money like any other vender, vending an event to the club. They are adding 500$ to a C tier event, they're running in March, that's not even required by the pdga. They want to run 10 more events here in the KC area. This opens up a ton more events for our members to participate in...!

 Which is our focus, be the voice of our members...

 This is a great thing for our Club members.

 You have no idea how much of a jackass you sound like when you make accusations like this? I know you don't care, but lemme stop your asinine posts before you trap yourself in your moms basement, stay in your pajamas for 3 weeks, and type yourself into the "second coming of internet banter!" Paranoia is the first stage, than Sociopath ism, soon to follow...

Man, don't be so hard on matty and Loomis. They're both really good guys who care immensely about disc golf in KC. You really ought to reconsider your words there.

It CAN be a great thing for club members. One thing Rick has always done is to try and make sure the club is taken care of when he ran events. That not only includes paying club fees/dues, but also includes not crowding out any current club events that the club makes more money on than just $1.50/head (or whatever the fee is these days).  DGW sometimes ran club events (including Wide Opens) as club events, meaning the club basically made the nut on the tournament, and anything DGW made was from selling the club plastic (at a heavy discount).  The club needs to make sure that neither DD or DGW are taking too many good weekends and crowding the club out. The club depends on revenues from tournaments and leagues to function, as well as membership dues. Taking any of those three things out of the equation will hurt the club's ability to function both politically and economically

My concerns have not been expressed in this thread, so what exactly am I being associated with? I'm sorry, I haven't been paying attention.
Title: Re: New Dynamic Discs Store
Post by: Loomis on February 01, 2012, 02:53:12 PM
Just caught up... Okay... I'm excited to hear that there are 10 "new" events coming to the KC area this year. Just what exactly are these 10 new events? Are they actually new events or are they taking events which were previously run by the club and running those? So if we make a list of the tournaments we have here (every now and then)

KC Wide Open, Mighty Mo, City of Fountains, Olathe Open, KanUWyco, Those are the PDGA events.

Are they taking over control of these tournaments? Is there going to be a profit margin from each of these tournaments? What is the cut for DD and what is the cut for the club?

H2Open, Swope Spring thingy, Rosedale Ams, Club Championships, The LS disc tournament, RamNin. Those are the non Sanctioned events I can recall.

Are they taking over control of these tournaments and again, are they going to share the profits?

So there is a lot of fluff coming out of certain people about the good or bad of DD coming to town. I guess I would like to hear more about what the positives are to their presence other than "they are going to run some tournaments" and "they are going to add 500 bucks." Both of those are wonderful things to hear, but the details are a bit hazy. Be more substantial and direct in your commentary.

Title: Re: New Dynamic Discs Store
Post by: ekolk on February 01, 2012, 10:15:41 PM
Okay, I couldn't resist and had to weigh in on this.

First and foremost, Arthur's, Gate's, and LC's blow Okey Joe's away. But I'll eat a Carolina or a Z-man in a heart beat.   :)

I gotta agree with Kevin and Cooper, and as a result, I have to agree with Mike and Loomis. Yes, it is capitalism at work. There is a market which I think can support more than one DG store, and so does DD and investors.
Mike and Loomis are correct that any for profit business has a primary goal. Now, I do not agree with the tone of some of the comments (my opinion) as both DG retailers in town are and have been generous and supportive because it just makes sense to perpetuate the business they are involved in. Ultimately, this makes KC even better for disc golfers and the sport over all. True, we may not all agree on how profiteering is done, yet it is a result of the system which makes disc golf possible.

Even with my rational understanding of the system, I do think there is some merit to concerns of a "take over" which we have seen manifested as a shared perception of competition. This competition is not on the retail level but the club level.
Chappy has a point of making sure club events are not crowded out by DGW or DD events, while both support, they do not serve the same purposes, and members would see the difference over time.

Agree? Disagree? All the more reason to weigh in on the club mission statement.

These are the events that I know DD is involved in this year:

Kan-U-WyCo
Rosedale Open
Kansas City Wide Open (running the B-Tier)

I believed they helped Tom last year with the Old Settlers Open, so that one is probably on the list as well.

They've also expressed interest in running a food drive at Olathe in the near future.

I hope the future of the relationship with DD and the KCFDC goes better then the experiance that I am having.

Post by: The Bird Father on February 02, 2012, 09:53:09 AM
I have had nothing but possitive things come from DD.  They will be the main sponsor for the Ram'N'Salmon outside of Cade and Myself.  Jeremy is very busy but seems to e-mail atleast once or twice a week and awnsers pretty much everytime I call.

Billy, maybe you don't have the correct contact info....or maybe an LSDiscs sponsored player doesn't help your case!!

I can't wait for the new store, especially since it will be alot closer for me personally than Fred Smith's house.  Speaking of that guy, I think he still owes me a disc!


There will be nothing bad about DD coming to town....everything they bring to the table will be great for the community and we should welcome them with open arms instead of all this junk that is going on.  The KCFDC now has the oppurtunity to make more money on events, especially if we can create competition for club events.

Now stop your complaining and get out and play!

Post by: ptinkc on February 02, 2012, 12:28:34 PM
 Seems to be alot of interest, which is a great thing for everyone! As I posted in the start of this thread will be running 10 events in the metro. Some of them are kcfdc events that we asked the board to participate in, some are exsitisting events, and some will be new events. We are all club members in this KC Dynamic Discs store, and the owner of DD is a kcfdc club member. We will be looking out for both the kcfdc and DD interests.
The club recieves $2 per player for all of the tourneys. DD takes the initiative to ask to run the event and present players packs. Also add money to the purse in one event so far, donating money to other events. DD will use the tourneys for the exposure for the kcfdc, the store and the DD website. The tourneys are about the players and giving them an opportunity to play in more events in the Metro Area without having to travel for an hour or two away from town. DD will make money off these events and there are alot of variables to how much you make in the end after expenses are covered from money you put out early and hope enough players show up to at least break even.
Anybody can run an event in KC if you choose. DD has asked to and we think we are doing the right way. We went to the BOD at a meeting and let them know we were opening a store in KC. That DD wanted to run events in KC. And asked them what we needed to do.
If anyone has questions about the store, DD role in KC tourneys or anything else please feel free to email me at ptinkcptinkc@yahoo.comor call me and I will help you out.
Thanks, Pete

If no entity is allowed to advertise then this thread needs a name change and wording of location. Talking about what tournaments DD is planning and how it affects the club is OK but coming on here touting a new store is asvertising.
I don't see DGW advertising their year end clearances in here or other gimmicks.

Considering the fact that the main thread about this very topic began with rumors about the new store opening, this informational thread really doesn't seem like advertising (though it may very well be, indirectly).
Title: Re: New Dynamic Discs Store
Post by: jack on February 03, 2012, 11:24:15 AM
It is advertising a store that is opening, it's not advertising that they have Katana's on special there Chief.......You don't think that informing the main group of people that at least are online in KC that a store is going here wouldn't happen.

BTW, DGW does advertise on here as well, they tell of their location and what you can get there from time to time, but it is in conjunction with other events that are happening, and that is a post about the need that some may want to fill at DGW.

So is advertising that lost discs are at DGW a bad idea then?

I think that the real culprit, is non-disc golf related, or local related industries, or the advertisements that Jeremy sends out if you are on the DD list, those ad's have not hit here from Rick or any other DGW employee, or DD employees.  Are links giving for more information, absolutely.  Should they be banned, NO WAY.

There is a line in credible information that contains advertising, and to date we have all been pretty blessed that the companies that Disc related industries have here locally have been above reproach to date.

My thoughts anyway, you can agree with Glover if you choose to......
