Correction to the Olathe League Schedule:

League will be rotating monthly, not weekly.

League will be as follows:

Lakeside Hills in April, June and August
Prairie Center in May, July and finishing the season in September.

Would it be possible to also add LD contact information so everyone can call/text us if they are going to be late?

Van:

This flyer has already gone to print, and will be displayed at every KCFDC course (some of them are up already)

We chose to leave the TD information off the flyer. However the TD contact is all on the KCFDC.org site, and calendar. We're hoping to get the word out with the flyer and direct traffic back home to the site/forum/calendar etc.

Gone to print with the Olathe course rotation error? >:(

Tom, It has been printed for more than a week (Final approval was March 21st). We certainly had a deadline. We wanted the flyer to be up before leagues started.. and you were still on the fence about the league situation. Erhem... On March 29th..

Although the league schedule indicates the Monday Olathe league will be alternating between Lakeside hills and PC, the plan is for it to be at Lakeside Hills every week until further notice.
Thanks!

BOD, thanks for getting the sign together and organized.  We have needed something like that for a long time at our courses.  I hope that is larger than 8 1/2 by  11.  But having something is better than nothing.  I think that it would also be beneficial to have another page that explains the league process, division, payout, workdays, local tournaments, and what the club does etc.  that would not have to be super in depth, but something that the rec player at their local course could immediately read and then go to the website for more info.

I wish that the BoD would have checked a little better with everyone on this.  I like the information, don't get me wrong, but NE League with Cliff/BV was done last year, is being done this year and it probably wont be a PDGA league all year long.  Are we going to get updated signs in the future then to mirror this information of change?

John, I know that something along these lines was done already.  I have them up at Cliff and Blue Valley marquee's already.

They're just a sticker. It's cheap (enough) to have them reprinted, and re-stuck. We were trying to have these out before leagues started, its not our fault everyone wants a dag-nab custom league  ::)

Perhaps I hadn't made a decision or announcement when you went to print, but typically information isn't just assumed without confirming. I had never said it would rotate weekly, or at all. I did announce Monday though that it will alternate monthly.

I appreciate the effort, I'm just used to published items going thru a check before being finalized.

Again, thanks, and good job, mostly!

So much bitterness on this forum lately. There used to be the MO/KS jabs and that was all in good fun.  Just seems like people pick fights just to instigate. What happened to the KCFDC that works together and provided constructive criticism?  Maybe I'm reading into things, but it seems pretty consistent now and it's not encouraging for all those KC disc players who never post on the forum, but do read the posts and may very well be turned off by the immature comments and jabs amongst what is supposedly the "best club the the country" with the "beat courses in the country." I would say the latter is true, but there's way too much bull**** and not enough cohesiveness around here IMO.

Just my two cents...and let the discussion begin...
Title: Re: Summer League Info
Post by: jack on April 04, 2013, 03:31:17 PM
Actions are a good thing, don't get me wrong Jordan, but when the information isn't accurate, it is worst than having no information at all.

Infact on Monday night I got a call from someone at 6:15, asking if league was cancelled, or hadn't started yet, because they were at Cliff since 5:30 and no one was there......I had to explain that league on the First Mondays is at Blue Valley, they got it, but if that sign was up, how would you tell?  I will make my own signage to go along with the dates as well to put in the marquee, but these are going to be on the courses from what I understand, so it will get read often.....

Again it is great that this is getting done, I love the action, but in the next version we want to ensure accuracy of this information which is what I think that we are saying, not boo hisss, this is bad!

 ;D

Incoming smart-butt comment:

Well have your info in before the league season starts! woo hoo! I know scheduling is tough, but folks can still look at the Club calendar and check out the events.

I probably should've started a new thread because I wasn't speaking to this thread in particular.  I just saw the comments back and forth.  Both sides have valid points here, I completely understand that. 

In general, comments on here just seem so negative all the time.  People are so quick to throw things back in one another's faces that nothing gets done and when it does, somebody is hacked off one way or the other.  Granted, not everyone is going to be a "happy camper" with everything that goes on as it relates to the club.  The cohesiveness has just seemed to dissipate in the two years that I've been a member and have read posts on this forum. 

1.  A new disc shop came to town, now another is in Independence.  I understand loyalties.  Be loyal to whichever store you want to be loyal to, fine.  Fact of the matter is, we have more disc selection to choose from!  Score!
2.  Jack is providing a new PDGA league that is new to everyone, including himself.  Great!  Thanks for that, Jack!  It's a learning process for him, but let's face it he was getting drilled on the forum early this week for lack of clarity.
3.  Tracy decides to have a qualifier event on a Missouri course.  HEAVEN FORBID IT!!! It is the best course in KC guys...just sayin'.

Just a few examples that come to mind and there's opinions to both sides.  I welcome opinions, just wish we could learn to leave the negativity at the door.

I don't want to offend anyone, but could the event calender be modified to show the start time for all the Mondays in April in Olathe to be 5:30, and for folks to be signed up by 5:15? Please?

Jordan, often its difficult to convey feelings by just using words, especially in a forum atmosphere (duh)

I call it the Mike Hyzer effect. Argue and defend points like a madman on the internet, but when ya get down to it, and you're playing a round together the 'other' guy really isn't that bad. Actually, you kinda like him, and you remember what brought you together in the first place.

Disc Golf!

I realize this, and most people that post on the forum know one another and their personalities.  Just trying to save face a little on the image we portray as a club on the forum.  Who know's who's actually reading all this and deciding whether or not they want to be a part of the club?!  That's what we're about right?  Growing the sport, and growing out KCDG community?

Pointless gripe I guess.  I'm sure I'm getting laughed at with these posts; just a little food for thought.

Jordan - I agree and understand.

This week I dished out and received a bit more criticism than what was warranted.
As info, I also started to discuss privately with Jack about the PDGA league so it wasn't displayed for all.  And for the record, I totally understand that it is Jack's deal and he can do whatever he wants with it, I am trying to help learn the process as well.

In all seriousness Jordan, you have a good point. 

Reminds me of a saying that some may have heard,

"When people say, hey Bob is a great guy when you get to know him, what they really mean to say is Bob is a @#$%, but you just get used to it."

May we all get used to each other.

There is a new league in town. Pleasant Hill will be having rec league on Thursday nights. This will be similar to Rosedales rec league on Mondays in that it will be a free league to play. The thought process is that being that far east it will accessible to rec players that can't/won't make it to Rosedale. I hope to see and meet any veteran players that would like to come out and help grow the sport. I know this is short notice for this week and I am not expecting large numbers this week but I will be out there for anyone that wants to come out. I will be getting the word out around town starting tomarrow. It will be a 6pm tee time so show up a little early. Any questions feel free to PM.

This is great news!  I will most likely be playing this one, since I live in LS.

Reminder, that league is at BLUE VALLEY tonight!!

Well, I am uncertain if I can get there by 5:30 to play on the Big course, and get everyone going.  I should be there close to it though, and if we can get 3-somes going by 5:30, we should have enough time to play the big course.  I can play it generally in 2 1/2 hours if I don't doddle.  So if someone wants to step up and take names and $$$ until I get there, I think that the big course is on tonight boys.  If no one responds, then it will be "inner course" for all.

Dear Jack,

I will get there at 5 to get things started, so cards can go off at 5:30!!  All I need is the amounts for all divisions.
