Pleasant Hill / 7/3 Glow and swap meet
« on: June 30, 2014, 06:31:44 PM »
After the new players league on Thursday 7/3 at Pleasant Hill, I was thinking it would be fun to have a $5 random draw doubles glow round.  We'll start around 9pm.  In between the two rounds, I am going to be bringing my extra discs to swap/sell if anyone is interested.

I also think that I have something wrong in my right shoulder, so I may be taking off playing time for the month of July and focus on getting Cliff Ready for the LDO.

You are going to need the time.  Matt Crowe and I played Cliff yesterday.  Course was looking rough, lots of over growth.  Plus another burned up car in between holes 8 and 9.  And tons of trash all over especially on hole 17.  In fact, Matt and I could barely play 17 as local neighbors were hanging out above the basket throwing the empty cans and 12 pack boxes right at the basket as we were coming up to finish.  No respect for the park.

What about BV of KS?

When Kevin Zane and I were leaving, a park staff asked about the tournament.  He said they would be mowing all week trying to get caught up.  One of their main mowing tractors went down which put them behind especially at Rosie I'm sure.

I threw an absolute fantastic shot that was parked on other pin and was out of bounds.  I thought as long as I throw a straight shot I will be fine.  Guess not.   Stupid artificial ob.  Makes courses look gimmiky when it's unnecesary.  Wyco is a fantastic course and plenty difficult without it.

I have a question about #9 at Wyco.  Caddy book shows the OB on left and right goes all the way to the road (straight ahead).  I just played there and it's painted OB short of the road.  It cuts in front of the the pin that is  straight ahead.  So is the caddy book wrong?  I get the OB on the left and right.  I don't understand it straight ahead when you have the road there.

Any KCWO discs available for purchase?  Getting close and I haven't heard of anything yet.

Blue Valley / mowed

When was the last time BV was mowed?  I was thinking of playing it this week, but if the grass is too tall, I might try another option.

What about Angie Biondo?  I haven't seen her around much, since LDO.

Okay, went back today and moved 14 back to short.  We will try to get it cleaned up before we move it back.

I saw some off the left, but not on the green.  Kelly was going to trim it up before league tonight. I'll try to take a look tomorrow and might move it back.

I received an email about the mowing Monday from LSPR.  They indicated they would be mowing on May 13 or 14.  Then we will mow again next week before Memorial weekend.  On another note, they are going to hand over a set of keys so we can move the baskets.  Working out particulars now, how often, who, etc.

For your information, on the table, and has been in discussion between the team captains and myself, is an issue of state allegiance.  This is an issue that has come up before, particularly the first year, when I wasn't prepared to think about it, in the rush to get the event underway that Fall.  I don't believe it was mentioned last year, but probably would have affected the same folks asking about it the previous year.  To be honest, I don't think the people in question would have made either sides team, however could obviously been captains picked.  The difference this year is a player, that had been on a team previously, has moved out of his state of allegiance.  That player is Shanan Carson.

Anyway, the issue is players living on one side of the state line, but their true allegiance is to the other state.  This issue will continue to crop if not addressed at this time when it affects a team level player.

I am posting this so there is no mistaking what is being proposed.

A player living on one side of the state line, but wanting to play for the other side has to meet at least one of the following criteria to claim state allegiance:

A) Raised in and graduated high school in said state, 
or
B) Graduated from College in said state,
or
C) Have had residency in said state continuously, to the present, for 15+ years

That's it, no other reasons will be accepted to establish true allegiance.  Players still need to meet the currently living within the area requirement to even be considered under this amendment. 

Once a player establishes allegiance to a state and has played on that sides team, they can never play for the other side.

Finally, players that need to use the allegiance amendment to get on the team of their state allegiance must be selected with a captains pick or alternate spot.  No qualifying spots can be obtained by a player using the allegiance amendment.

Both A and B apply to me (graduated high school and college in KS).  I have no idea what C means, if you live in a state continously to the present, don't you still live in that state. 

You should only play for the state you live in.  Period.  There shouldn't be any other discussion.  Nobody forces anyone to live anywhere.  Shanan chose to live in Missouri, thus he should only play for the east side.  Otherwise he should grab some pom poms and cheer on the West Side team.  You know it doesn't say Kansas or Missouri team.  It says East and West side. 

If it's proposal that fine.  I say no way.  Don't create loop holes for special circumstance for specific players, it creates unnecessary confusion.  Keep it simple.
