Tournaments / Re: 2015 Ice Bowl
« on: November 22, 2014, 12:28:04 PM »
I'm going to say this as somebody who has worked in social services for quite some time: Food is not as much the issue as toiletries. If we wanted to do a drive on top of the standard Ice Bowl event we should focus on things that you can't buy with food assistance. Toilet paper, tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, wash rags, feminine hygiene products, razors, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, coffee filters (you can buy coffee, just not filters), deoderant, and other things of that nature.

I'm not recommending we change anything, just letting you know what frustrations I've seen when helping individuals access food pantries. These are the extras that people ask for and only occasionally receive. I'm sure there are others that I haven't mentioned.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Course Conditions
« on: November 21, 2014, 06:24:56 PM »
So, I've always thought Wilbur Young was a difficult course, and wouldn't play it myself (I was right). I finally played a full round out there today with FTL. The first round Harold noticed large amounts of trash scattered throughout the course. During the 1:00 round the card I was on picked up at least five full bags of trash. You might think we sought out this trash, but we really just picked up stuff as we walked by. We picked stuff up right next the tee boxes. We picked stuff up 10 feet away from the trash can.  We picked stuff up around where our discs landed. The course otherwise looked great, but some of that trash had clearly been there for months. Might be time for a work day to pick up trash and stuff.

Next time you see Pate, Jake, Bowen, or Kelly B. out there take a minute and thank them for helping keep the park clean.

Wasn't Cinderblock involved last time with beer? They're legit. We might also try KC Bier Co as they're newer. Big Rip was involved with an event at Thornfield earlier in the year as well.

I'd be happy to help out with registration, merchandise, raffle, or whatever. Do I still get to play at some point?

Wilbur Young takes the votes.
First round will be combo mombo, playing both tee pads. 36 hole par 108.
Second round may start lat!  ;D

If the girlfriend's family wasn't coming in town tomorrow afternoon, I'd say beers at my house afterward... but that probably won't fly with the misses.

I don't care when it gets dark, it's the rain I'm watching.

This is my larger concern as well.

Just have fun. Don't be hard on yourself even if others are playing out of their mind. Play your game.

Now I just need to heed my own advice.

Now I'm confused? How is touche salesman combative? I hope he gets his disc back too. There was no being an ass, there was no being combative, there was only sarcasm - which was overtly noted in the first post so as not to be misconstrued as the former.

Touché salesman.

Why would you ever throw a king down under?

Sarcasm aside, I hope it gets returned.

General Banter / Re: Help with a few events in January

I bumped into a couple casual players at Legacy today who seemed somewhat interested in the Ice Bowl. If It's a go there let me know and I'll try to get the downtown chamber and some other businesses to help promote the event with posters or socially.

Whew, board access fixed. I'd be happy to help with what I can. What are you planning?

General Banter / Re: New match play format suggestion.
« on: November 15, 2014, 01:16:38 PM »
I don't like that style of match play. I think an East West tournament in more of a Ryder Cup format would be interesting. So first day *or morning* you play teams in  rounds of Four-Ball, Alternate Shot, and Best Ball format.  Day two *or afternoon* you play match play (captains select tee order, but don't know who the other team selects in that order) and single stroke play (as it sounds).

Anybody have some extra lights who's going tonight?

Yeah, it makes sense. If you get stuck playing with me you won't be mad that I drop you from first to last cash!

I can toss a few bucks to helping a kid who needs a coat and gloves. I'll look around, might have a nice hat laying around too. I'll be at Prairie Center playing FTL tomorrow morning. I'll check here afterwards.
