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...

Young Park - Blue Springs / Just a thought...

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. 

Agreed Rob

Here's the quick response I got from LSPR.  I asked about adding in another 9-18 holes or if that is not an option, putting in short pads for younger players/older players to mix it up.  I also asked about having tournaments out there as for whatever reason that rarely happens.  Last but not least I made mention that the rough isn't mowed enough.  One time I even kicked up a full size turkey out of it and didn't even see it when I was walking up to it.  Response as follows:

"Thank you for your comments about the Legacy Park Disc golf course.  We appreciate your suggestions concerning expansion of the course and additional tee boxes for younger players.  We currently do not have plans for expanding the course or adding additional tee boxes, although in  the future we may consider changes to the course.  The course was built as a recreational level course and placed in the vicinity of two shelters, a small playground and restroom facilities.  The shelters are frequently rented for family gatherings and organizational events.   Tournaments at the course are welcome but are required to meet certain requirements so as not to interfere with other uses of the park and shelters.  We will review our mowing schedule, we typically mow the fairways on a 14 day cycle and make adjustments to the schedule as needed, for instance the most recent cycle was 8 days and this week the fairways will be mowed on a 7 day cycle.  The rough is typically mowed three times per year and more if needed.  The rough has been mowed once already and another mowing is scheduled before July 1st. "

The more posts we get to the link Eric posted above the more they'll realize what potential the area has and what we'd like to see done to make it thrive.  It is what you make of it!
