Loomis ( or someone else) recently posted RE:  urban disc golf penn valley etc...I also know Jack and many others have inquired on this potential gem opportunity in years past...I think maybe 10+ years ago.  Many of us have setup temp baskets around this area and know how awesome it can be.  A lot of hurdles to jump but below is a response to an email I sent today on the live chat city budget meeting today.    We should somehow get this done.

Hi Mr. Becks,

Thank you for participating in today’s interactive budget chat. I shared your question with Mark McHenry, director of Parks and Recreation. He thinks your request is worth exploring. The City would have to work with the KC Fly Disc Golf Club and the Penn Valley Park Conservatory to  design such a course. We would likely use the City’s Capital Budget to design/create the park and then the Parks and Recreation budget would be used to maintain the course.

Mr. McHenry said that the Parks and Recreation Department will bring this suggestion to the KC Fly Disc Club and the Penn Valley Park Conservatory and get their input on its feasibility. He added that if you have follow-up questions,

My name is Tim Becks.  I’d like the ask the council if Parks and Recs  could seriously consider installing a disc golf course in Penn Valley Park. It’s an awesome piece of the city that is TOTALLY underused.  Look at many of the parks around in KCMO, Kessler Park, Blue Valley, Waterworks, and Swope.  All have championship level disc golf courses that not only improve the grounds but also bring “FAMILY FRIENDLY” activities to many blighted areas in the city.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO SOMETHING AWESOME.  The city COULD boast the NATION’S  PREMIER URBAN DISC GOLF course.  You would be surprised how many people would play Penn Valley park on a daily basis.
Thank you,
Tim Becks

Just wanted to say thanks to the Board, EKOLK, and everyone else who helps put this on.  Had a blast!  Great food, friends, and fun!  Nora had a blast too!  She did get to participate in the ring of fire which I thought was pretty cool!

I tried calling but no answer.  Holler if anyone know's Rusty.

Tournaments / Lemondrop Open on Mt. Lemon in Tucson AZ

Peter E and i just returned from this tourney.  Holy SHEEEEEEET...You have not played disc golf like this before.  This is extreme DG at the core.  Not only are you hiking around a 10,000+ ft. mountain but you're playing dg while doing so.   It's like playing two rounds of Blue Valley / day..or i sure felt like it afterwards.  Everyone should make this event at least once in their life.  I've heard some people compare it to Kiss the Sky in Aspen.  All in all a great tourney and unbelieveable scenery.  I think Joe E threw one of his provisionals 1500+ feet down the mountain.  Freaking amazing.

Pete Engleman has a great story for you folks...have him tell ya but basically a roofing company guy called and said he found Pete's #4 Wraith (PINK) atop of the Western Auto building..i think he said the tall main one in the complex. 

Anybody know who threw it and from where?
