Shifting gears a little bit.  I know I strongly urged Independence residents in my original post as attendees to this meeting.  However, I'd like to show Indep Parks & Rec just how much support there is for another course in the metro.  If you live on the east side, the west side, the north side or the south side, please consider coming to this meeting and showing your support.  We need to show that the KCFDC is active and willing to take in yet another championship level course and work with the Parks & Rec department to ensure that it thrives.  I'd sure appreciate it!

The Truth about it is, there were a couple of local Truths not present.  ;)

50% trilogy discs in the one disc wango.  8)

I just didn't want this event thread to be full of complaints and no compliments.  Yes, there were things that went wrong that needed to be addressed; it sounds like they were.  There were also 280+ competitors coupled with a different teeing format, weather issues and course layouts that were foreign to most as you said, Jack.  That being said we all just need to be cognizant of how hard it is to put something like that on.  Good reviews are just as deserved as the bad reviews that I've read and heard so far.  Anyway, I've made my point and pretty much just echoed Jack's post.  Hooray for disc golf in KC!

I understand what a public forum is and how it works.  I am certainly not validating what occurred nor do I disagree with people being upset after hearing what happened.  I just think there are better ways to handle these situations directly.   

I think the majority of what is being discussed on here needs to be taken offline.  If you have an issue, discuss it with Dynamic Discs and the tournament director.  What's done is done and is in the past.  I'm sure there are appeals processes with the PDGA that can take place here if needed.  I believe the other items discussed have also been handled at this point by DD.  It is becoming a rant and we need to move on.

Thanks for putting on another event in KC.  While hiccups happen, just know that we as a whole appreciate an organization putting on competitive events for us to compete in, amateur and professional alike.

John, I got your message, thanks. Obviously I would love to see a course in Independence, but I cannot attend the meeting due to work. There were times I used to look at maps of the city, trying to see where a good spot would be for a course. Hope you guys are successful in pitching the idea!

If you have any buddies from Independence that would be able to come and would be willing to support the cause, please let them know.  I'd really like to blow them away with attendance if we can.  That being said, if anyone on the forum knows that they will be in attendance or plan to attend if their schedule allows, please either reply on this thread or send me a PM.  I'd like to get a headcount ahead of time if at all possible so I can set expectations with my contact at P&R.  Thanks again!

Is the course fully set up now? Looking forward to coming out and playing it some time.

There are a few finishing touches to be done, but the course is definitely playable.  There are 18 baskets for the normal positions, and I believe all but one (if not all) of the gold baskets are in as well.  There is also potentially one or two tee pads yet to be complete.  In any event, it's still very much so set up for use and mowed.  I encourage anyone to get out there and play it! 

And I would like to emphasize the meeting that John mentioned.  We're trying very hard to get Independence on board with the disc golf expansion out east.  Blue Springs, Lee's Summit, Liberty, Pleasant Hill and Raymore all now have (or will have very soon) championship courses.  Independence has some prime real estate and we want to show that we are an active and present group in Independence and Kansas City as a whole.  As John said, if you live in Independence or nearby, please do your best to attend this meeting.  It will be held a week from today at the Sermon Center in Independence at 6:00.  Thanks for your support!

Found and Lost / WaterWorks-Teal FR Judge
« on: August 01, 2014, 09:02:01 pm »
No idea where I left it laying, but I left a first run judge that is teal in color out there somewhere. I would love to get it back. If found please call me or take to one of the shops. Haven't seen many around town if any in this color scheme first run so don't just throw it in your bag and hope nobody asks, cuz I'll ask  ;)

I just found out that I'm being recruited to help the wife in her classroom Monday night; otherwise I would have done it.

I'll be there for sure! Any clues as to where they are looking to put the course?

Sites are still being looked at. John and I had pitched Van hook, but there are some potential issues there. Time will tell, but the first step is getting them and everyone else in indep thinking about disc golf.

Very cool. How late can we show up?  I will be busy until about 7:15 that night , but want to see a course in my city.

I am not sure what the meeting agenda is.  I would say show up unless you hear otherwise from me!

John Theiss and I have been in contact with Independence Parks and Recreation and have begun discussion about putting a course in somewhere in town.  As many of you know, there is a LOT of work that goes into putting in a disc golf course and it takes a LOT of time and energy to get it done.  Parks and Rec wants to gauge interest in disc golf by having as many Independence disc golfers attend a meeting on August 12th.  The city already has some temporary baskets in storage, so they plan to bring one of those baskets along to the meeting and present it (disc golf) along with what has already been done with regards to a course installation to those in attendance.  So, we need as many Independence disc golfers as possible to attend this meeting and show their support.  I think it is OK for local residents of other towns to be in attendance as well if you feel so moved.  The emphasis, though, is to see how many local players there are and what the need and desire is for a course.

The meeting will be held at the Sermon Center at 6:00 PM on August 12th.  The address for the Sermon Center is as follows:

201 North Dodgion Street
Independence, MO 64050

So, call your friends & family if they play and are Independence residents and do your best to get them to this meeting.  If there is a desire for a course and a core group of residents who will continually support the course and its upkeep, I think we have a good shot at getting a course put in (P.S. I have certainly made mention of the club and KCFDC's efforts in course upkeep, collaboration, etc).  The location is still under discussion, but this is the first step.  I am very excited for this opportunity and am hopeful that you are as well.  I know that the forum will only reach a handful of Independence players, so I need your help in spreading the word.  August 12, 6:00 PM, let's make it happen.

Water Works / 7/31/14 - Water Works League - Exact MAC Setup TONIGHT!

Is the plan to play the MAC setup tonight?  I wasn't able to attend last week, but would like to give it a shot tonight to see what they are up against this weekend.
