General Banter / American Disc Golf Tour
« on: March 14, 2016, 11:58:23 am »
I was not sure i was reading this correctly.  This came from All things disc golf web page interviewing Chris Kilgus i believe.  What is the open space referring the article is referring to? 

 https://allthingsdiscgolf.com/american-disc-golf-tour-sets-espn-broadcast-for-may-2016/

There is a list of technical standards on your website that vary slightly from the PDGA’s standards. What are the changes and why the differences?

“The differences were based on talks with players, ADGT officials as well as ESPN. The main changes include changes in the the rim width allowing slightly larger rim discs as well as allowing discs to now have a open space in the middle of the disc. For live disc golf events to be attractive to new viewers and players we have to have some disc flights that are easily caught by camera. Making the specs more generous can potentially increase the flight time of a disc on open drives, invariably making discs fly father and easily tracked on camera.”

Thanks to the many disc golfers on this forum that have served our country in the armed forces and risked their lives in combat.  I thank you for your service  and sacrifices so we can live our lives freely and argue over such simple things like disc golf. 

Thanks to:

Tournaments / 2015 Kansas City Juniors Open- Oct 10th
« on: September 04, 2015, 12:41:27 pm »
The 3rd annual Kansas City Juniors Open is October 10th at Fox Hill Elementary.   We have a bigger and better players pack this year with an event shirt and disc for a ridiculously low entry price.   We have some major sponsorship this year from Dynamic Disc.

We need some help distributing flyers at various courses to help spread the word. If you have access to the kiosk please contact me. Our goal is continue to grow the event and provide a fun day of disc golf.

There is a Easter Egg Hunt on Sat, March 28th at Stocksdale park.  I was told to post this from the park workers that the course will still be open and that there should not be much interference with the course.  However, each year there are around 500+ cars and easily over 1000 folks in the park.  Parking ends up backing all the way up to the radio station if coming from the north near William Jewel.

Liberty, MO - Stocksdale Park / list of areas/things that need work
« on: March 08, 2015, 08:19:41 pm »
I am making a list to send over to the parks department tomorrow morning.  I would like to get a list of things that folks see that need to be worked on.  I know folks want benches and more trash cans... but i am thinking items for workdays ie  cleaning up brush here or there, pushing back woods in this area etc.

What do you  want to see improved? 

The parks would like a punch list and I have several things, but i want to know what others are seeing that i might be missing.

thanks,

John

Liberty parks and rec, ERTA and  myself are communicating/working on rerouting the trail near basket #17 basket in the woods  at BRC.  It will be staying in the left pin unfortunately until the trail  gets rerouted further down into the woods.  There was some confusion on the trail usage and it was believed to be a closed trail.  There has been ongoing discussions for rerouting with myself and Clay Lozer, who is the trail steward and member of ERTA.  We hope to get the trail rerouted soon and their is a scheduled work day in near future.  I will post the date when i am notified. 

There are several trails crossings out there, but hole #17 pin in the woods does not give riders or golfers enough sight lines.  Thanks for being patient.  The course is still only a few months old and we are working out some kinks.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Hole 17 - barricade wood pile
« on: November 28, 2014, 08:47:37 pm »
Out to play some golf this weekend and there was a recent addition on hole 17.  There is a stack of logs/limbs/brush in front of basket about 25ft away, 4 feet wide, and 40 ft long.  Just curious who had the energy to build this or if anyone knows of the folks that did?

Thanks,

John

Sorry for the late notice on this.  This Thursday, Nov 6th at 5pm Bad Rock Creek DGC will be officially open.  Liberty has demonstrated what a positive working relationship looks like among several parties involved in this  process.  Their commitment to this process from beginning to end has been outstanding. Their department was not afraid to invest in the type of work that is required to build and maintain a quality course.  Liberty is  another valued partner of the KCFDC. 

If anyone would like to send them a thank you, please email at

CWILSON@ci.liberty.mo.us   

Chris Wilson was the master mind of this project and has been 100% behind it from the get go. He trusted me and valued the input from so many golfers that have helped on this project.   

Thanks,

John
