I once had a putt land in the basket...and then fall through the bottom of the basket back onto the ground...in a tournament.  We all counted it as a made putt, but yes the course is FAR and away better that it once was.


It shouldn't have counted.

802.05 Holing Out

Basket Targets: In order to hole out, the thrower must release the disc and it must come to rest supported by the chains and/or the inner cylinder (bottom and inside wall) of the tray. It may be additionally supported by the pole. A disc that enters the target below the top of the tray or above the bottom of the chain support is not holed out.

I would venture to guess you are not reading the wording correctly as it did NOT enter below the top of the tray OR above the bottom of the chain support.  It entered the basket correctly and would've come to rest had the basket been in good repair.  There was simply a metal bar missing on the bottom which would've allowed the disc to come to rest.  As such, yes, it counts.

Young Park - Blue Springs / Re: Will Young have a spring cleanup day?

Steeler, this is a volunteer organization INCLUDING those on the board who volunteer their time to take care of the many hundreds of other things going on in the KCFDC.
All they can do is suggest things to the general membership.  They cannot force anyone to clean up after themselves or join a planned workday.  I assure you they are always asking people to clean up our courses. 

This forum coupled with our own actions on the course is what is going to get the parks cleaned up.  People are reading this thread...unfortunately those of reading this thread likely pick up after ourselves.  Short of work days (which already happen on a regular basis), the only way to get courses cleaned up is to take it upon yourself and organize it.  This is not the board's responsibility.  I'm sure you know at least ten people in the KCFDC.  Call them up, plan a workday, get it done if you want it done.  Thank you for your efforts and the hours you spent cleaning up the other day.  However, don't look for someone else to do the rest of the work or organize the work when you are more than capable of organizing it yourself. 

Everyone wants somebody else to organize it and wants somebody else to take care of it.  In the words of Nike, "JUST DO IT."

Are you familiar with why Rosedale was redesigned?
There are some among us who don't think as clearly as others.
It is private, end of discussion.

Get yourself some waders and you'd have about 30 discs to choose from I'd bet.

The fox 4 article/video didn't show clearly where the damage was done.

NON-RENEW  ;D

Just kidding.  I'm not aware of one ever having been offered.  If there is one I'd sure like to know about it.  The only thing I would recommend is renewing through DGW to save yourself the processing fee if you have the time to do it there.  Also, I think DGW or the club benefit from that somehow.

It was up as recently as yesterday.  My guess is they're making changes as it was all 2015 previously.  I assume 2016 is upcoming.
