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, 
B) Graduated from College in said state,
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.

short 1 is an eyesore and 12 long is a genius placement with ample options for a 3

I don't disagree that there aren't ample options for a 3 on that hole, but a par 3 should have at least some option for a 2 with a great drive.  Ask Jake, he said he bombed a drive and was pin high on the right.  But he didn't have an option on a putt just an easy upshot?  I like the hole even though I didn't get up and down.   Wind had plenty to do with it for me and my thumber needs some work. 

I would say #12 and 15 should have been par 4's.   There's no way anyone's getting a 2 on #12 in that placement unless they throw in a field ace.

I dropped a couple of discs in the Swope disc return that I found on hole 1 on Monday evening.  One was a saint no name and number and the other was I think a Vulcan? It did have a number.  I was in a hurry so I didn't call just dropped them off.

Agreed.  I've played Beaver Ranch/Conifer Park and it's likely the best course I've played.  My next Co trip, I'm playing Phantom Falls.  And you'll be whipped by the time you are done if you play Beaver Ranch.

Oh the weeping and gnashing of teeth over change.  The only constant thing in life is change.  Why is this so hard for everyone to understand. 

Harold has it right.
If you can't make a Wednesday WYCO league . . . don't go.  If you don't like PDGA leagues . . . don't go
If you want to play WYCO on Friday nights . . . go play  If you really want WYCO Friday nights league . . . step up and run it

Nobody is forcing anyone to do anything.  If YOU don't like something, then YOU have the power to do something about it (besides griping) and make it better to your liking.  Stop waiting on THEY or THEM to fix it to your liking, because it may not ever happen.

Keep calm, and disc on.

League Income:
SMP  $1489 (sorry Peter, referenced Rosie up above)

What the heck is going on at SMP?  Is that number real?  Does the club get kickbacks for tickets given out by the cops that is included in that number?  I am flabbergasted by that.

So I'm watching the Disc Golf Guy Viog #197 of the 2014 Memorial Tournament.   Nikko steps up and throws a shot and my daughter sees it. And she says "What do you look like in your dreams? I've got a big afro and stuff. A wooden leg and a weird eye". She can quote every saying in this youtube video. We laughed for a good five minutes.

Draw up your plans and have an actual road map for new ideas. Present them to the board and we all can make change happen. Getting the brains of many on an idea will help it flourish.

I agree that we need a new way to manage courses. But how can we make this possible? Accountability and framework make this sort of thing happen.

League participation has not dropped. Leagues and Events are apart of our mission statement

My proposal needs flushed out a bit more before it would be ready for a roadmap or proposal, which is why I posted on the forum to increase discussion on his topic and generate more ideas or better ones.

You're right, I don't have evidence that league participation has dropped.  It may only be my perception and the specific leagues that I tend to frequent have dropped.  And it maybe that there are more leagues now and the number of league players is spread across them, meaning per league there look to be fewer when in fact they may be the same or greater.  However, I do think that league participation could dramatically increase, if we improve promotability and increase our active membership.
