General Banter / 2 br apartment in Independence
« on: October 15, 2013, 08:40:50 PM »
Hey guys - bought a house last week and have four months left on our current lease.  If anyone is interested or knows anyone who is looking to rent a 2 bedroom apartment on the east side of KC let me know.  My landlord would likely just sublease the apartment for the remainder of the contract. The rent is cheap, great location off I-70 and noland road, top floor, no noisy neighbors, and I can
give you any other info you may need.

PM if you would like to hear more, please and thank you.

Tournaments / Sunday tournaments
« on: September 05, 2013, 11:04:38 AM »
Does anyone know of any Sunday tourneys that are taking place over the next few weeks?  I'm stuck going to weddings the next three weekends which will completely wipe out my chances of playing anything before Joplin...

General Banter / Thoughts on Innova Atlas and Nova
« on: September 04, 2013, 03:42:08 PM »
I'm just curious if anyone has compared the durability of the Atlas (soon to be Nova as well) with the MVP plastics.  I love my Vector by MVP and will very anxious to see if Innova can meet or exceed their product with these new ones...

Is this happening tonight?  Tee Time?  Format?

Found and Lost / WW Hole #5 Blue Boss
« on: August 21, 2013, 07:59:39 PM »
I'm sad to report that I lost another oldie but goodie this evening at WaterWorks.  I threw a Star Blue Boss over the trees for the normal flex shot on hole #5.  Expecting it to plop down in the middle of the fairway about 30' past the short left pin, I saw nothing fall.  It may have been a little left, but not far enough left to fall down the slope.  I have a feeling it's up in the tree and never had a chance to come down.  If you see it, please let me know or take it DD or DGW.  It has my name, number and PDGA number on the back.

Thank you.

Found and Lost / Swope O.B. Yellow JK Aviar
« on: August 13, 2013, 09:01:49 PM »
During a very poor attempt at a cubby ace on hole 3 tonight at Swope, I threw a max weight yellow JK Aviar that drifted left and into the OB the comes into play between holes 1&2.  It has a faded Disc Golf Monkey Stamp on top and the lettering #9 VDC on the back for an ace I got at Vista Del Camino.  There were several people throwing and I am hoping that one of the people who walked down there before me picked it up by accident.  Please, if you find this disc return it to disc golf world or dynamic discs or call the number on the back (preferable).  It should have my PDGA number on it as well.  I've had this disc since I first started playing and it hasn't left my bag since.  We're not just talking one beer for it's return, I'll buy you a full 6 pack.  I have a tournament this weekend that has plenty of wooded holes and I NEED this seasoned putter back in the bag.  Help me out if you can. Sorry for the long winded paragraph, it's just one of those discs that you love and hate to see go, even if it's only worth $8 replacement cost.

Has anyone played this course?  Playing the tourney there this weekend and have no idea what to expect.  It looks pretty hairy, but with some bomber holes mixed in.  Aside from tick repellant, does anyone have any pointers?  I won't have time to play it before the round starts so I'm going in blind here.

Swope / Disc Return

If I lost a disc at swope and somebody called to tell me they found it and put it in the disc return, how do I get it back?

Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / 8/9/13
« on: August 09, 2013, 08:41:59 AM »
Still 6:00 start time tonight?  The days are definitely getting shorter, so I wanted to check in on that first.  Also, standard dubs again i would assume?

Young Park - Blue Springs / 7/31

Presume we're still good with a 6:00 start tonight?  Not sure that I'll make it out, but want to make sure start time is as normal if I'm able to join.

I presume there's still league tonight?  What time are you sending out cards, Jack?

Young Park - Blue Springs / Just a thought...
« on: June 26, 2013, 11:47:29 AM »
I'm finally almost ready to start playing disc golf again after breaking a leg two months ago.  While I was out, I had a few thoughts with regards to this league and the Legacy league.  For whatever reason, we don't get very good turnouts at either one of these leagues.  A few reasons are probably as follows:

1. Continuous shift in who is running the league.  I never see scores posted for either league, so I'm sure some people don't even know that a league is happening or has been happening.
2. Distance - pretty far east side of the city
3. Legacy - Friday nights (IMO) is just not a good league night.  It's the weekend man!  Many people have Friday night plans with friends and family.  This is my main reason for not ever having stepped up to run this league on a consistent basis. 

So, I have a few questions:

1. Why do YOU think these leagues are not well attended?
2. What do YOU think we can do to get more attendance?
3. Would YOU be interested in attending an alternating Legacy/Young Wednesday night league?

Now that I'm married, have a normal schedule, and have a leg that will allow me to get back out on the course, I'd be interested in running an alternating league as mentioned above...but I want to get everyone's thoughts on it first and see what it would take to make this happen.  SO.....let's hear it.

General Banter / New Course Potential in Prairie Village
« on: May 23, 2013, 10:52:49 AM »
A fellow co-worker of mine who lives in PV sent me this link and thought I'd share.  Does anyone know who put this in the minds of PV parks and rec?  Or, is disc golf actually gaining traction in our parks and rec departments just by word of mouth?

It looks to be just a little dinker course, but that's how it all begins!  I'll never forget my first days at William Yates!

P.S. Anyone who has a Facebook account should go to bat on these negative disc golf comments below the article...
