Beginners / Re: Help Me Put Discs in the Hands of Beginners!
« on: May 21, 2015, 02:53:13 pm »
Thank you very much for the discs. I put 75% of them in the hands of kids to take home and throw. A couple of the Destroyers weren't suitable for students (or teachers). The remainder of the discs were given to some teachers who were interested in the sport. I would love to post the picture of these 9 kids who got an assortment of discs because of the kind donor (who I know is lurking on this forum), and the KCFDC for donating a few Ace Race discs.

I also crushed some drives in the football field when students were coming down and loading up so they could see a real disc fly (not that I throw it that well, but it looks good in an open field).

Bbod Childers is it supposed to start m owing the course (hopefully next week).  Been in the works for a couple of weeks...evidently LSPR didn' t plan the transition from the current contrator to Boyd  verry well.  ::)  Anyway, should be much better when Boyd gets on it(at least he's a player).

That's good news to hear.

Show up.

Be there. Be square.

Beers at "halftime" on SteelerDoug Nova.

If you need another basket for your kids, let me know. I'll lend you mine.

Free beers.... be careful what you offer.

Will parks and rec give me trash bags to help clean this beautiful piece of land? If not it's ok, I'll bring bags of my own, just curious

I've got half a box of bags in my car as well. I'll have some out at Smithville on Saturday. Looks like it's going to rain all/most of the weekend.

48 to go

I wanted to write a novel in response. This is what I ended up saying:

I'm an advocate for parks and a board member of the Kansas City Flying Disc Club. Disc Golf is one of the fastest growing recreational activities in the country and beginning to be taught as a Lifetime Sports Activity through Physical Education classes. This sport fits more in line with your mission statement of "clean and healthy environment for people of all ages, with a continuing focus on disadvantaged youth" than zip lines. Zip lines require specific physical requirements and is a cost prohibitive activity, much more so than disc golf. The rationale behind this decision is flawed and shows a true misunderstanding of the sport, its cost, and the ability of individuals of all physical capacities to participate.

Awesome, I was wanting Waterworks and Swope, and Intermediate is my division of choice.

You could have texted me Rob and I would have told you.

Another note about dead tree behind seven tee pad...that is totaly out of play and affects nothing.
There are still three nest of two different species of Woodpeckers..Whats left standing of tree..should not be cut down..Destroying Wildlife Habitats. .on a tree that is totaly out of play..Think its illegal and against the law..maybe federal law..depending on species. .
Then again it should be a felony. .to litter..like the two guys from Lee's Summit did today..in the White GMC SUV..

Get 'em Steve!!!!

This is why our club rocks. I asked about this earlier today, and I get a message from Josh at DD saying somebody dropped off "some discs" for me and asking if I could pick them up. I walk in expecting a couple putters, maybe a mid... but no, this is what I find.  Thanks, I'm going to put these discs in the hands of some kids.

I actually talked to Doug at GBO briefly as well. I wonder if he could pick me out in a lineup.

Just giving you a hard time SteelerDoug.

 I can certainly access a lot of mids or drivers, the problem is putters. Putters aren't frequently lost since you don't throw them that far. That being said, I know I need to contact Pete. I was at that meeting.
