Blue Valley / Re: Revenge?--Blue Valley tonight for league

Jack, is the course still set long?  Will you be playing the long pins?

Anybody noticed how this cancellation was done by Milenorthkmco but the original posting was done by MileNorthKCMO.

What up?

I was in the shop this past weekend and the event is indeed cancelled.  I'm not sure why another user name was created, but the store owner did tell me the event was cancelled. 

The rest of the conversation left me with a sour taste; I probably won't be back...and I'm going to leave it at that.

Apologies, I must have overlooked the scores being posted.  I'm usually pretty up-to-date on the league postings and have been watching everything since I broke my leg to see who all has been playing and where.  I wasn't trying to "blast" anyone, nor am I trying to oust any league directors.  I'm just seeing what can be done to increase participation in these leagues.  What is it going to take to get our turnouts to match that of WW, PC, etc.  There are clearly leagues that kill it in terms of participation.  Some of that has to do with the course itself, but a lot of it has to do with other factors.  Legacy and Young are both a long haul from downtown, so I think that is the biggest issue here.

Anyway, I think that Legacy on Friday nights is a challenge for a lot of people.  It's just a tough sell as it is the beginning of the weekend.  Maybe the alternating league was a bad idea if turnouts are as good as deadhead84 claims they are.  My bad, just trying to spur some DISCussion.  I love playing Legacy (unlike most people), and wish we could make it a popular course in KC.  Sure, some holes are repetitive, but it's not a gimme course and for whatever reason that is engrained in everyone's mind far as I can tell.  For those who haven't taken a good look around out there, there is A LOT of good land (even a picturesque waterfall) and if we can get some people out to build this course's reputation, maybe more things will happen.  Eric is certainly getting the ball rolling with LSPR, I just want to keep it rolling and turn BOTH of these leagues into something big.

How much does it cost to plant a few new trees?  I know that hole is still sloped to add a little difficulty, but those trees MADE that hole tough.

As it turns out, something came up and I won't be able to make it to the tombstone round on Sunday morning.  However, if you would like me to move baskets prior to this weekend, please PM me or post on this thread.

Sounds great. WYE could definitely use some work. I played it tonight (first round in two months - broken leg) and it is THICK. As always, erosion is taking more of a hold, but a little brush clean up and new tee signs will make things look a lot better.

Would you like me to move the baskets short/long for this event or leave as is?  I know I haven't moved baskets in ages out there, but Theiss may have.  Holes with more than one placement include: 5, 7, 8 and 9. We had another placement for 12, but the city took it out.  Also, as you probably know, you'll need to clarify which teepads we are supposed to throw from on Sunday because there are a few long tees and/or flypads (whether or not they have stayed intact or not I don't know) including holes 4, 5 (parking lot), 6, 8, 12, 14 (two different tee boxes)16, 17 and 18.  Lastly, there are a few mandos that can come into effect if you want on holes 2, 5, 6 (depending on tee box), 7 and 11.

I'm sure you've taken all this into account, but wanted to make sure you had all of the information if it had not been given to you already.

Sounds great! I should be there at 8:00 or shortly thereafter with another person.

How early will you be there and do you have to be present to accept winnings if you win? I have somewhere to be at 10:45, but could swing it probably if I teed off right at 8:30 if not before.

Would you consider doing this on a weekend or evening? A lot of people wouldn't be able to make a 9:00 AM weekday round...

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.

To my knowledge there has NEVER been a KCFDC event at Legacy. I know many people think it's a bland course. To some extent I agree. However, when it is set long, it's no gimme. For the sake of getting things moving at Legacy (the land out there has a LOT of potential for expansion), I think we should try to incorporate Legacy. It doesn't have to be for the Club Championships, but I think is LSPR sees how much attention a tourney can draw, maybe they will be a bit more willing to bend on the expansion and amending of the course.

I agree with Tank, all the advanced players should play up. That way all of us intermediates that are playing advanced have a shot at finishing in the top 50. I just wanted to play all the courses, I know my roll in advanced........clean up.

Is this Aaron Walter?!

Should've put a name and number on it.  That's what sucks about want to throw em, but don't want to put your name on em and depreciate value.
