"Please encourage KCFDC members and other disc golfers to provide comments regarding their desires to have  a disc golf course at the old Meadowbrook Country Club property that will be a new 88 acre Johnson County Park.  There is a public meeting today Tuesday the 10th and tomorrow Wednesday the 11th from 4-8:00 pm in the club house at 91st and Nall and the meetings are open to the public.  We will be taking park development suggestions at these meetings".

I just talked to Bill from the Johnson County Parks Department who is a disc golfer and he suggested having disc golfers and residents of JOCO to show up to have input in the direction of this new Park. Lets really show up in strong numbers to get a great disc golf course into the area.

Please pass the word around and could someone post this to the Facebook page! Thanks

General Banter / Down Under Hole 9 Area
« on: March 09, 2015, 10:47:01 am »
I just been asked by the WYCO Parks Department and the KCK Police Department to remove the Fire Pit and the extra benches down there. The Parks Department said okay to one bench per hole. They have been called out to the park and found people hanging out down there after the Park Closed hours. They don't want anyone in the park after hours so we all need to help get the word out to stay out of the park after hours.
We have a great relationship with the Parks so let's help them out by taking care of this for them.
Thank you

General Banter / Wyco League Change?
« on: March 14, 2014, 10:13:38 am »
I heard Wyco league has changed to Wednesday night, is that correct? The Friday night league was a great league night  for that destination park. The KCFDC has done a great job establishing league nights and sticking to them over the years so people from all over remember when a league is and make the trek to go play it. Friday worked great for Wyco because it was a destination and normally you didn't have to work on Saturday so you could drive out there and play then hang out or go to the Legends and grab something to eat. This is disappointing that they moved it to try and do what?  Drive the attendance up? By competing with another Wyandotte County Park for Players? I don't think you will drive attendance up at all but just the opposite it will go down. Please try this out and if its not working  don't hesitate to move it back to Friday. The Lawrence players and the Kansas City players will appreciate it.
Thanks, Pete

Just wanted to start acknowledging and Thanking the people that are working at Rosedale to get it ready for the Wide Open. So far John P3 and Paul Salierno have been busy cleaning up the down trees on hole #1 by the basket. They both have also been weed eating this past week. Jay Rivard will be marking the 10 meter circles and the out of bounds after this next mow. I have had several people that cant make it Saturday but will come out this week and weed eat a hole or two.
Looking forward to seeing everyone this Saturday.
 Thanks, Pete

« on: June 03, 2013, 10:31:33 pm »
Just wanted to say thanks to a few people who helped on the Tee Pads #1 and #14 at Rosedale. This couldn't have been done with out the KCFDC and Dynamic Discs donating the materials for these two projects. Next Dave Zentz has been at the park for every stone that was laid, Thank you Dave! Tee pad #14 helper was Jay Rivard, Peter Engelman and Amber will be planting flowers.
Tee Pad #1 helpers are Jay, Easy, Chris, GI Dave, Hans, Matt Dixon, Heath, James and I know there were a couple of more people and I apologize I cant think of them at this time. The next thing to do is plant some Rose Bushes next to the pad this week to finish off the #1 Tee Pad!
