General Banter / Water Works Baskets for SALE
« on: May 11, 2018, 01:37:27 PM »
We need your help.  And you want to help, and we know you want to take a piece of this history home with you.

We have been given permission to get new baskets for the Water Works Disc Golf course.  We have also been given the permission to sell the existing baskets in order to defray the cost to the city.  We are in the process of ordering 18 new Mach X’s for the course and we hope to have them in very soon.  With that in mind we are proud to offer a silent auction for each of the 1-18 baskets.  The minimum bid will be $250/ea to start.  That will get you the basket out of the ground….  Keep in mind that these baskets are the older model that is connected at the base(ground) not like those at many of our courses that have the “Cashen Sleeve”.  We are working on having modifications done to the baskets as well as giving you a metal “base” for easier use at home, but that will change the pricing to $315 to start.  Once someone indicates that they are wanting the “home Mod” done, the price will jump automatically to $315 and the bid goes on.

Bids will be required in $5 increments.   

Bids will be capped at $1000/ea.  If you reach that mark, it is yours.  All proceeds that go above the amount needed will be reinvested within the disc golf community and the KCFDC.

Path to #8-Clean all the way to the rocks, and the extend this cleaning/clearing all the way up to #8 hangar basket

8-Long, clear out more behind the pin here, create a "true" 25'-35' green on the hole, may need to carve in prior to the basket, and also on the east side of the fairway, MOW and get that growth that has started DOWN.

9-only--just remain tidy

10--Hmmmm....to go long or not....Clear out the Long pin and explore, will need a spotter all rounds on this hole if long.....

Summer Leagues / NE League Move to TUESDAY's in 2018
« on: April 02, 2018, 09:54:29 AM »
We will start (hopefully) on April 10th.  With the snow and weather right now, I am not starting league like this.  The plan is to play Blue Valley once a month during league rotation.

This league will be PDGA sanctioned through parts and subject to change on other weeks. During the PDGA portion (Beginning in May) to participate in the league you do not need to be a PDGA member.

$4.00 Buy-In ($5 Non-KCFDC member)
$1.00 KCFDC fee
$1.00 PDGA fee
$1.00 Ace Fund (optional)

During April Signups and rolling starts begin at approx 5:15, after May 1 signups begin ~5:30 with teeing off at 6:00 PM
Ace pot starts at $798.

Will examine other options, such as doubles, triples, alternate shot doubles (random), worst shot doubles, etc.... during NON-PDGA portion of the league.  The first league will be standard singles divisional based, Pro's play for Cash, Am's play for KCKash.

Questions?  HMU.

Cliff Drive / NE LEAGUE 2018
« on: April 02, 2018, 09:08:00 AM »
Due to Snow and weather not befitting a league, I am NOT starting league on the 3rd of April this year as intended.  I will be looking to start it on the 10th of April though and the Ace Fund will be over $800 to start.

Cliff Drive / NE League moves to Tuesday's--2018
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:10:27 AM »
With the loss of Swope, I have moved the Cliff Drive League to Tuesday's.  I will be starting the league on April 3rd, and we will play Blue Valley once a month as well, probably going to move that to the "Last Tuesday" of the month this year.

It will be a PDGA league in most instances which means that the pay will be as follows:
League=$5 (Required)
Ace Fund=$1
PDGA Fees=$1 (Required)

KCFDC Club Member receives $1/discount

We will be looking to be out on the course by 5:30 in April and then move to the 6:00 in May.

Please bring exact CASH, I mean quarters are cash, but help a brother out!

Ace fund starts at $798

Swope / Missing Tee Sign
« on: February 12, 2018, 01:45:14 PM »
A police report has been made, however if you have the tee sign and return it nothing will transpire.

If it is found through other measure we will prosecute as hard as we can.

Water Works / Dogs must be on a leash....
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:42:13 PM »
http://statelaws.findlaw.com/missouri-law/kansas-city-dog-bites-the-basics.html

Specifically, Kansas City Ordinance section 14-33, also known as the leash law, prohibits dogs from roaming free in public areas. Dogs can, of course, roam free on its owner's property, but only if confined by a leash, fence, or electronic collar of some sort.

WE need to get in front of this.  There have been a few complaints about disc golfers and their dogs.  If you bring your dog to the course, you need it on a leash. (PERIOD)

I know we all have our great dogs that follow commands, and are well behaved, but we are at risk of losing courses by dogs...(and yes I completely get the notice with Swope as well).

So please keep your dog leashed at the courses, none of the courses are off leash areas.

Those dogs that are well behaved keep the leash on it, and close to your side so your dog doesn't go into any stray areas, as that is the problem, getting into people's yard.  We don't need this.

Please share.

I wanted to get out that we will be hosting the 2018 Wide Open on June 8-10.

As of right now the plan will be to use the following courses, but will be subject to change--Blue Valley(uncertain if it will be normal, or modified), Cliff Drive--Will probably use a newer configuration than what is there now, based on conversations with the PnR about changes and additions I want to see.  WaterWorks--depends on proposed path changes....and there will be a special course TBD.  At this point I am uncertain if it will be a "replacement" Swope, if it will be something that I need work with PnR with another piece of their land, or if it is just going to be so special that we will have to have a local event to map out what gets used.  Basically will be a 4 round event

The A/Tier will be Pro/AM, there will not be a performance flight this year at the Wide Open.  The Players Pack will be determined over the next couple of months as to whether I am going to do a trophy only or not will depend on what comes up to value and make that determination.  Pricepoint will probably be in the $75/range for Am's and $125 for Pro, possible $150 for Open.  I am hopeful to have a B/C Tieron Sat/Sun for Int/Rec divisions, and it will be Trophy only, probably $50 entry (ADD pdga FEES if not current), and more than likely will be 3 rounds for that.  If things progress to where I want them to go, there may be an additional $20/person fee that will accompany the event, but that will be dependent upon course replacement.

What I am hopeful for is the following-
36 to 54--Tee sign sponsors--$100 each ($250 for player sponsored free entry)
Players--I want us to be back over 350 in 2018
Support staff--Ideally we have 4 people per course as our "leadership" squad, and then have at least 4-7 support staff/spotters etc....
Support leading up to the event on the courses--workdays will be announced in advance, and notify me of scenarios on courses that need to take place and be rectified
A good time for all of us to enjoy some great disc golf, rather playing, spectating, or supporting.

There are so many things I am leaving off, but I wanted to start to get the nuts and bolts about the event out as quickly as I could once the date was announced

Cliff Drive / Workday in November or December
« on: October 04, 2017, 03:45:56 PM »
Please vote, and let us know.  They will be bringing out their equipment and this time of year is great to remove items (primarily honeysuckle) and get us moving into the next phase of the course.  This will enable a much larger portion in the woods, and will make the course either a reconfigured 18 hole design, or possibly move to a 24 hole design until we have more programming in the park.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,

jack

Leagues / 2017 League is OVER--see you next year (NE--Cliff and Blue Valley)
« on: September 18, 2017, 12:57:15 PM »
Monday night leagues are off for the remainder of 2017.  Too much rain today and yesterday to play out there tonight.

The course is open, but will more than likely go "woody LONG" as he likes to play it long....  Look for information though about helping change the configuration of Cliff over the fall and winter months.

Cliff Drive / Last League of the PDGA Season on 9/18--will there be more???
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:55:16 AM »
https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/33230

I am having next week as the last week for the PDGA league at the NE courses.  Our Ace Fund will be over $800.  We will be playing a modified layout, close to an LDO version as I tinker with new hole options.

I haven't decided if the week will be the last, as I will take account from the players on the 18th.  If we do one on the 25th, we may do an alternate shot doubles in an again altered format.

Letting folks know!

Thanks,

jack

Cliff Drive / LDO work 2017 needed
« on: August 01, 2017, 01:32:31 PM »
Will be working at getting the course ready for the LDO.  Could use some help on the following areas--
#1-Trash and hillside cleanup.  I plan on meeting with the P&R about this though, so don't do it yet....we may be able to get out from it.
#2-mow the fairway, clear the deris
#3-Clear the hillside, the top shelf, and the wall as best we can
#4-in front of the pad has GROWN so much, need to chop that down a bit.  Mowing the fairways, getting the downed brush to the side
#5-mow/clean around the fairway and pins up top
#6-Mow/clean
#7--Clean the hillside of growth, weedwack and mow everything up to #38 pad, take out downed tree from storm (May get P&R on that as well)
#8--Clear out everything, you know the drill on this one!  This is the LDO special spot.
#9--clear out a little so we have VIP Parking

Let me know if you plan to help at any point.  With the MAC this weekend, and the bike races next weekend (holes #2-#8 will be closed) timing is not on my side.
