Arkansas has some dry counties too.  I almost was arrested for bootlegging because I was in the truck with all the beer coolers for a float trip down there.  We had probably 20 cases of beer in the back and you are only allowed 2 per person.  There were 2 of us in the truck and so we had to dump out 16 cases of beer on the side of the road or we were going to jail.   :'(

I agree with Jack here.   I see several new courses going in and several more cities that are exploring the possibility and I don't see that slowing down anytime soon.  Unfortunately, as Jack pointed out,our club is not growing at the same pace.   As a club, we need to focus on really two things in the near future to support these new courses along with maintaining our current courses.  And that is to 1.  increase our membership and 2. increase their participation.  I heard some good ideas from Eric K. at the Board meeting in regards to KCFDC schwag that I think will help with exposure and help build the membership base.  Last year, I put some effort in regards to this with the hats and collared shirts with KCFDC logos and frankly I was surprised it wasn't more popular, but Eric K. is going in a slightly different direction and it will likely be more successful.

Nonetheless, I have had some of my own ideas that I've been mulling over the last year that I think is a good time to roll out now.  It is tied to how we are structured as a club. Basically my idea is that we have mini-clubs within the KCFDC.  I would have to read the club bylaws but perhaps officially they would be Committees.  These Committees or mini-clubs would be responsible for essentially the same thing as the entire club does, but it can break it down to the more local level at the courses you frequent the most.  We could find out from our members (on signup form and contact those already active) what they feel is their home course  (#1) and then maybe their #2 and #3 courses that they frequently play.  The leader of the committee could either be assigned by the Board or voted on by committee members.  The leader would then pull from this group to assign course coordinator roles, league coordinator roles, work day organizer, P&R interface, or other assignments.   In some cases, these roles may be the same person, but it would give them more people to pull from to help with activities such work days and other initiatives at their home courses and prevent them from getting burned out by doing all the work themselves.  You wouldnít have to limit member participation to a single committee either.    Now I think the Committee Leader has to be responsible to reaching out to everyone within their committee and not just pick and choose their friends to come help and then complain that others arenít pulling their weight.  Not that ever happens now.   ;) 

We could have contests between Committees, who has the most members, the largest increase in membership from that committee area, the largest league participation, the most work day volunteers, etc. with rewards to winning competitions be determined by the Board.  Perhaps X amount in course improvement funds or win the right to host a specific tournament (KCWO or club championships).  I was thinking you could have bag tags or patches made for each course and then volunteers could earn a course bag tag or patch for so many hours donated.  If they come to multiple work days or meet a certain threshold of hours donated, then maybe we could give away additional schwag, either KCFDC or a specific committee shirts or whatever.  At this time, I donít think it makes sense for every course to have their own committee, but perhaps later on down the road it would.  I was thinking the following groupings
Under KS VP:  1.  P.C.Lakeside 2. WycoSM 3. RosieUPDown and 4. future KS courses (PVHeritage)   
Under MO VP:  1.  BlueCliff 2.  BSLegacy 3. sWopeWW 4.  future MO courses CassCo (PHillBelRay)

Thoughts?

Hey, I'm from Raymore.  And so is KCVinnie.  You need to rethink that thought.  Raymore disc golfers are awesome.  And wait till we get our course this year, then you will see even more.

Baksets have been moved to new locations on 9, 10, 12, 14, and 16.  Boyd is going to help me get the new distances and verify the other placements and I'll try to get them posted.  Let me know what you think and other improvements you would like to see out there.

Um, Mr. Eastwood.  Of course I know where Heritage Park is.....just haven't heard of any disc golf plans for the park. 

Anyone know where Olathe is?

Sorry TPalmer, I'm prone to being a smart ass at times.  And it's Dr. Eastwood.

What's this about Heritage Park?  This is the first I have heard of it.

"Heritage Park is a 1,238-acre park is located at 159th and Pflumm Road. Purchased in 1979 through voter-approved bonds, the park was dedicated on July 4, 1981. Recreational facilities include 10 picnic shelters (two large capacity), a 40 acre lake, marina, a 30 acre dog off-leash area, concessions, shelters and picnic areas, play areas, athletic fields for softball, football, soccer, and the 18-hole championship Heritage Park Golf Course and driving range. Located adjacent to Heritage Park is our excellent full-care boarding, horse training and private training facility, White Fox Manor Stables."

How could you miss it?   Personally, my daughter plays soccer there.

I found it funny when people would walk up to play at Rosedale this weekend and had no idea what's going on.  Some of them looked like they play all the time too.

What about a change in location?  I like Rosedale and know it's the most played course in town, but what about Blue Valley.  There's a much larger shelter it's not quite as packed in as Rosedale is for parking, etc.  You could easily have plenty of holes out there to satisfy the number of players.  I know several people who didn't play this year, because its so congested.   I agree the 2 biggest things that need to be addressed are cleaner bathrooms and water jugs or non-alcoholic drinks.
