Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / About Legacy forthcoming changes
« on: July 17, 2016, 09:34:29 AM »
Eric Eastwood re: Legacy. Came previously to the Board and requested new sleeves and did some additional work out there. Since that time, Eric has established relationship with Lees Summit Parks Dept and those who work on the course, mowing has gotten better, trees were added. There has been approval for 10-15 more pins for more placements at the course and Eric would also like to add some additional teepads. Wants to tackle these items one at a time but is requesting around $500 to add 15 new sleeves with PVC pipes for when not in use. Kelly makes a motion to approve up to $600 for these additions. Crispian seconds this motion. All Board members present approve.

Does this mean Legacy is now affiliated with KCFDC?

Eric, what ideas do you have for changes?

What new pin placements?

New tee pads where?

Is the course getting more land to utilize, like across the ravine behind long #7?   ;)

Thank you KCFDC BOD and KCFDC members.
Thank you Eric, Boyd and Big Dan and anyone else I may have missed supporting the Legacy course and league.

General Banter / Minnesota health officials warn of fatal tick bites
« on: June 28, 2016, 01:44:19 PM »
(awareness is key)

Health officials in Minnesota are warning about Lyme-infected tick bites that attack the heart and cause sudden cardiac death. The state recorded the first fatal case of what is called Lyme carditis last year, and another man recently reported the illness, Fox 9 reported.

Steve Stolz told the news site that he noticed his heart was beating at a slower pace while walking up a hill. He went to the emergency room where doctors determined a tick bite disturbed the electrical system of his heart.

“Sixty-five percent of patients with Lyme carditis are men and typically younger, ages 15 to 40,” Dr. Alex Campbell of the Minneapolis Heart Institute, told Fox 9. “Nobody understands why, but that’s what we see.”

The bacteria from the bite burrows into the heart muscle, which causes the electrical signals that keep the heart beating to short circuit. This can cause the heart to slow to a stop or develop a potentially fatal fast rhythm, Fox 9 reported.

“The heart will stop pumping blood and you pass out and that’s a sudden death,” Campbell told Fox 9.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only one percent of patients with Lyme disease will develop Lyme carditis. The condition can be treated with antibiotics or a temporary pace maker.

General Banter / Be careful when wading warm water ponds
« on: June 12, 2016, 11:03:37 AM »
With the warmer temps, the danger of  the amoeba Naegleria fowleri, is possible in KS and MO, though VERY RARE.  I believe one death occurred a few years ago in KS.

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/kansas-resident-dies-brain-eating-amoeba-swimming-warm/story?id=14489468

This amoeba is naturally occurring in warm waters usually a pond.  The parasite can cause an infection known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) by traveling up the nose to the brain and spinal cord and sadly mostly fatal.

Recommendation is to use a nose plug and minimize as much as possible stirring up the bottom.

(from GBO'ers traveling to Emporia this weekend)

Are there any good courses that we could park the RV overnight on the way from KC Sunday night?  We don't mind going a little out of the way.
* * *

I don't believe this is possible since all parks close at a certain hour.  Am I correct?  I don't know elsewhere, but I know some parks close at 11pm.  I'm trying to help them find a safe place to park for the night.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Will Young have a spring cleanup day?
« on: March 06, 2016, 09:34:58 PM »
Needs trash cans bad too.

That road up the hill of 4 and 5 and corner of 6 tee too, is a magnet from the road trash.  Now is the time to clean up before the course green's out.

I'll be there if there is one.  Adopt A Road works. Why not Adopt A Few holes?

Has anyone played Big Hill Lake in Cherryvale, KS?  I'm been informed it is considered a championship course and I'm considering a road trip out to play a few of these courses some weekend.  Any other recommendations are welcomed too.  Thank you.
