Hey everyone that plays Rosedale and Downunder we need some help cleaning up the DU course. The next time you play one of these courses in the next week please adopt a hole and bring a trash bag with you and just get as much as you can haul out of there. It doesn't have to be done all at once but a bunch of people will put a dent in it. Lets show the masses what the club can do when we put our minds and back into it. I will be there this weekend and will get the two hardest holes to get to. Please drop the bags by a barrel up top and the Parks will get them from there.
Thanks for the effort KC!

Tournaments / Re: JAPAN OPEN

We are back! This is the best Tourney that i have ever been to as an entire event goes. The cost was about $2500 bucks total including round trip airfare from here to LA to Tokyo to LA and KC. And transportation to the cottages from the train line. the Cottages were a $100 bucks a night per person including Two buffet style meals and Beer included. The Cost of the entry fee included lunch, a cart and two incredible courses of I think par 59 and par 60 . The Players pack was unprecedented- New Bag, Keen Shoes, towel, metal mini, plastic mini, shirt and a few smaller items. You stay where you play so you don't need a car they move you to the course for practice and playing rounds. If you have to start saving now for this event you should tuck a Hundred bucks a month away and go see the future of our sport and how to run a tourney with the players in mind. Shimboson was an amazing host and i left with so much respect for him and what he has done for the game.

Swope / Dans Dog Salomon
« on: March 19, 2010, 04:18:48 PM »

Dan Cashen's oldest dog Salomon has died today. If any one has played Swope Park or Blue Vally disc golf courses in the past 14 + years you have seen the dog out with Dan. This dog and getting him out to run the park has given Dan the opportunity to work at Swope and Blue Valley for countless hours and untold monies spent out of pocket that we will never know the final total. Salomon is just as responsible as a volunteer helping Dan at the course and keeping him going. When you work at the courses and your by yourself with your Dog you don't mind staying and finishing up what you started that day. And when your following the dog through the Park you come up with Ideas for the course or the new holes that lay in the brush. The dogs are like family to those of us that don't have children and you lose one to old age it hurts as you all know.
So next time you see Dan or Colleen remember their dog.
Thanks, Pete

Rosedale / Re: New Berm on #9

absolutely right too many pins on this hole and we will remove one or two as we make room for this placement after we get with Jim Sherwood.

Rosedale / Re: New Berm on #9

Actually the dirt was not the Down Under dust you're referring to. Jay Rivard donated the dirt, shaping of the dirt and seeding to change the landscape of the hole and it truly does change more than half the shots to the pins on the East side of the mound. Jay worked with the KCK Parks department and got approval for this project. We are looking at a new tribute pin setting like the USDGC decorative block in a round configuration about three feet high so the basket will be elevated with trouble all around for anyone who chooses to run a put, risk/reward so to speak. this will go on the mound after we get with Jim Sherwood on the placement. This is the second Tribute hole at Rosedale Park, the first being the pin in the stump on hole 8 is a take off from Sandy Point Disc Golf course in Wisconsin.

Cliff Drive / Re: Concrete Finisher's needed at Cliff Drive May 2
« on: April 26, 2009, 09:49:36 AM »
Jack just a side note, the forms your using are fine for concrete at ground level and at 3.5 inches tall they should hold about 1 and 1/8 yards of concrete roughly. Some of the forms are to tall and wont handle the weight of the concrete when filled. They can be off the ground a max of 1-2 inches before you have to really stabilize the forms with better supports than you are using presently. If you back fill the form with gravel this will help also. When pouring from the truck the concrete coming out of the truck should not hit the side of the form either as it can knock the form out of square or completely over.

Cliff Drive / Cliff drive hole one
« on: March 15, 2009, 08:34:24 PM »
Played Cliff Drive today and like what you did on several of the holes. A couple of things I would change to make the park safer for all playing, Hole One  pull the form back at least 6' to 8' feet off of the railroad ties that are set up. This should leave it half on and half off. This is a big hole and you need to leave the player some follow through. Even though you designers might not follow through there are plenty that do. The ties will still give you what you wanted a cool tee. There is no comparing this hole to any other in KC. It is a big drive to get out there. Hole 13 did you consider moving the tee under the tree by the street and trimming the branches up, a bench on one side and the tee on the other? Then this brings into play about 600' of OB on the street much like 12 only the opposite side of the road. Hole 17 was fun and long.
