No rush Jack.  But man get those Christmas decorations down.

Maybe he is Russian?

No.....Dutch German.....

I am slow, and have been under the weather, and then I went to the Chiefs bombing and that made me lazy on Sunday....but the Steelers play this weekend, so I will have to get rid of all that by then....

Before you decide to get rid of the tree, it's a good idea to check your city to see if there are any restrictions for throwing out a tree or if they have scheduled pickup dates for them. If you can basically get rid of your tree however you want, here are some popular dates.

Dec. 31: Take your tree down on New Year's Eve before the bells toll at midnight. Otherwise, it's said you'll be dragging all your baggage and bad luck from last year into the new year... if you're superstitious about these things, that is.

Jan. 5: Take your tree down on this day, traditionally considered the Twelfth Day of Christmas — i.e., the last of 12 days of Christmas merriment. Think of it as getting closure on the holiday season.

More: Thousands of bugs could be sitting in your Christmas tree right now

Jan. 6: Take it down on Jan. 6 in observance of the Epiphany, a Christian holiday marking the revelation of God in human form in the person of Jesus. Again, some would say leaving your tree up beyond the 5th or 6th brings bad luck.

So blame me for the Chiefs Loss, not Jerry the Ref....

I don’t want to sound like a comedian but are you calling the junior course the executive course now?

It has always been called that, some call it the Jr. Course.....but the naming has always been Exec Course.  I will be mimicking the 2014 Club Championship layout for a reference point.  Format will probably be WW/Rosie on Friday, Cliff on Sat and BV on Sunday for Pro divisions, and then BV on Friday, Rosie/Cliff/WW on Sat and Missed one on Sunday for Am's....BV will be Tee Times

Courses will be Cliff Drive, Modified Blue Valley, Rosedale and WaterWorks.

The Modified Blue Valley will not be the "inner course" but will be more of a use of the Executive and Original course.

All the time I was thinking about this....that we have done this before, and I have one in my backyard and I don't want to return to this type of disc golf......we have been there done that in my own mind.....

let me check, I know I got a Mako at USDGC in 2009 and I never used it.....I am uncertain if it is DX or Star, but thinking it was a Star, and I would gladly take some money from you for it.

I wanted to bring to the attention that everyone is seeking on the answers for what will happen within Swope.

We have been working diligently with Parks and Recreation at finding an alternate location within Swope Park for disc golf.  It has become apparent that the plans initially for an animal shelter have grown with the announcement by the city to re-purpose Animal Control and have the Kansas City Pet Project (the shelter initiative) take over those duties.  This announcement really creates a scenario in which having a course on the current foot print to meet the demands of the animal needs as a conflict.  Based on that knowledge over the past few months the KCFDC and the Kansas City Parks and Recreation  have had multiple meetings and discussions in regards to the future of disc golf within Swope.

The best answer right now is that we have identified multiple locations for a replacement course within Swope Park.  Alternate locations outside of Swope Park were identified, but not developed as ideal from the notion of the KCFDC at this time.  That doesn't mean that those areas away from Swope will not be looked at in the future, but it does mean that the efforts of the staff of the KCMO P&R and the KCFDC have been focused on finding an ideal location for the sport within the park.

We are close to having more information available once a location has been planned and mapped out accordingly.

What does this mean about the current Swope course.....well it means that a piece of history in our sport is going to be replaced by putting smiles of thousands of pet owners in years to come.  It means that our work and effort, and volunteerism for the past 3 decades plus is going to be fondly remembered, but replaced by what the voters approved.  It also though means that we have a chance to create a new place to enjoy our sport within the park and will elevate and move forward into our next stage for the park and our sport.

We are confident that the plans that will go into making this new location will benefit all within the disc golf community.  We believe that we will have abilities to expand and create "gold" examples for our larger internationally drawing events as well as have enjoyment within the course for our regular play.

Change of this magnitude isn't the easiest, but the truth be told, this took turns that no one could see when we were first asked about it in 2015.  The problem with being on public lands is that we are at the behest of the owner.  In this situation the owner didn't ask us to vacate, but instead is willing to work with us to work on an improved plan to remain true to the sport, and develop a course that will grow with us continually.

Change is tough, but my belief is that we will end up enjoying where we go, remember fondly our "gulley golf" and be passionate and excited about yet another "new" course to play in town.

Thanks,

Jack

Right now there are a few potential sites within Swope that we are working with Parks and Recreation on.  My own belief is that we will continue to see disc golf within Swope Park, just not on the land that we were entrusted with over the past few decades.

As things get finalized I will give out more information but right now we are looking at a few different options and concerns with some of the locations have made it difficult to say yes to on both parties.  Suffice it to say though PnR has been working very diligently with us on a replacement location within Swope, and we value that effort and work that they have made towards a solution.

More to come as it moves ahead.

Thanks,

Jack

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.

Just spitballin'...How about over by the old campground?  From the road it looks like some possible "fairways" and trails already exist.  Water and some electricity are already in place. The building just seem to be rotting in place.

THis is one of the areas that are being discussed as well.  Shelter #7, and shelter #2.

It's a really nice map though
Oh it is.  I have Maps for the KCMO courses in that format (Topo) but not the pins and placements.  Tim did that map when we first got it in play, changes have happened without an update.  Once everything is truly set, I am sure we can get it redone as well.

I need to have him do that with Cliff as well....
