Heard about this on a message board and looked it up.  Thought it looked like a lot of fun.  Bought it online got it and have had a lot of fun playing around/practicing because I haven't had the time to get a group together and play because of work.  But check it out and it might be something that Rick might be able to sell.

If anyone would be interested in play need 4 people to play just PM me and maybe we can get something together.

Tournaments / 2010 Ace Race?
« on: July 30, 2010, 04:54:28 PM »
Couldn't find a thread, but is this in the workings?  Had a blast last year, hoping to see it again.  Would be willing to do my best in helping out, run a small business that takes up a lot of time, but could do something to help I'm sure.

Thanks

Smithville / Re: Pay to Park
« on: April 06, 2010, 12:06:46 PM »
if there's one thing disc golf could assimilate from professional boxing, is to employ those bikini clad beauties with the round cards. just saying maybe they could be spotters or hold up quiet signs, and eventually carry the final 4 leaderboards. good music may bring a good gallery too.

Finally some forward thinking we can all agree on!

If the sport doesn't move forward it only moves backwards...  All the pro sports we are trying to make disc golf into today didn't happen overnight.  It took hard work from volunteers that care about the game to get them where they are at now.  I personally don't think that entertainers/athletes should make the money they make, nor do I think that they should have made the money they made during the early developing stages.  The one thing we need to remember is that the pay to play system isn't making the game corporate, it's just making the courses better.  If the entire KC DG scene goes to a pay to play we should then look into a KC Card that allows us to pay a yearly fee to play all the courses.  I would hate to be limited to playing a few courses because I'd have to get half a dozen "memberships" to different courses.

It will take years for us to be even close to the gallery sizes of the pga.  Our sport shouldn't even be compared to that of other's like MLB, NFL, NBA, etc. because it's not on the same level from a spectators point of view.  Fan's are the ones victimized in all of those sports, look at the cost of a single Chiefs game.  Ticket prices, parking, and concessions, you can't go to a game for less than $100.
Unfortunately the pga is the only mainstream sport that compares.  Not sure what the costs are to watch these events, but I'm sure they aren't cheap.  We need good pros to carry us to the next level, but the next level isn't going to be prime time ESPN, and it's not going to happen overnight.

Sorry for the ramble,

Good Day

General Banter / Re: Should we pay to have professional disc golfers?

Don't really get the question either?  They do get paid to an extent, sponsorships, prize money, etc.  The same is true with Pro Ball Golfers, except there is a lot bigger pool of money out there.  Should tourney fees go up to increase prize pools?? In my opinion, NO.  Should the PDGA do more to get sponsers to shell out more money? Yes.

While I think this sport is growing, it's largely due to the grassroots movement, local clubs like ours pushing it and getting more courses in the making.  I know a lot of people on here don't support joining the PDGA for various reasons, but I personally have and will continue to renew, just because one day I hope that they use our fees for marketing the sport.  I also support the KCFDC every chance I can to help our scene.  Paying pros, won't really help the sport grow, if anything I think it'll help slow it's growth b/c the money isn't going to come out of thin air.

It just seems that with the amount of land it could be turned into something like what is being purposed at Smithville, only a lot closer to more players.  That park still needs help being "cleaned" up, and two or three reasonably sized course would generate a lot more traffic from decent people like us disc golfers.

Hope your rumors are right, b/c I'd much rather drive there than an hour to Smithville.

WOW sir...Smithville is only 15 to 20 minutes north of downtown Kansas City, or 10-15 minutes from Waterworks. You make it sound like it's days away! We will have all the details in place...trust me when I say it's a place you will want to come play. Clean, water everywhere and NO undesireables milling around...just saying sir!

Dan  :o

I'm in Lee's Summit, so it is a haul for us south people.  Not saying I won't play it, but it'll be harder to get up there than most other courses in the urban core.

I really like the sound of those rumors, it seems that BV is to big for it's own good.  I know plenty of people that don't play it because all it really requires is big arm, big arm, big arm, putt.  It just seems that with the amount of land it could be turned into something like what is being purposed at Smithville, only a lot closer to more players.  That park still needs help being "cleaned" up, and two or three reasonably sized course would generate a lot more traffic from decent people like us disc golfers.

General Banter / Re: Shirt Color Preference...
« on: March 11, 2010, 08:14:24 AM »
Or you just told yours.  I'm 32 and I do not want to wear Tye Dye.  I will not I should say.  It's fine for wiping up oil spills but I'm short of finding other uses. 

Also, this is our PR towards the city in a sense, so do you think we would like to not have one more thing pointing us to hippies?  just wondering.  I mean don't you think the local hippies have enough tye dye stuff?  Not that I don't like it .. I just don't like it.  personally that is.

Have to agree, tye die should die.  I like the lean towards blue!

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Legacy Park Disc Golf Survey
« on: January 16, 2010, 02:11:16 PM »
They are now officially asking.  Picked up a survey form by the first tee pad.

"We would appreciate your comments on our course.  Please respond to the questions below and ....email us your response to Steve.Casey@cityofls.net

1. What comments would you make regarding the design and layout of the course?
2. What comments would you make regarding the maintenance of the course?
3. Would you support or assist a volunteer course coordinating committee?
4. What comments would you make regarding the operations of the course?
5. Are there specific rules or guidelines for play at this particular facility that should be considered?
6. Additional comments concerning the course or Lee's Summit Parks and Recreation."

It sounds like they are interested in having a better ran course.  But I do believe that if they were willing to have a working relationship with the KCFDC they could get most of this done by volunteers.  I know I am new to the club and community but I believe honest, constructive criticism could make this possible.  They seem to be inquiring to find out our commitment to the course.
