Water Works / Dogs must be on a leash....
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:42:13 PM »

Specifically, Kansas City Ordinance section 14-33, also known as the leash law, prohibits dogs from roaming free in public areas. Dogs can, of course, roam free on its owner's property, but only if confined by a leash, fence, or electronic collar of some sort.

WE need to get in front of this.  There have been a few complaints about disc golfers and their dogs.  If you bring your dog to the course, you need it on a leash. (PERIOD)

I know we all have our great dogs that follow commands, and are well behaved, but we are at risk of losing courses by dogs...(and yes I completely get the notice with Swope as well).

So please keep your dog leashed at the courses, none of the courses are off leash areas.

Those dogs that are well behaved keep the leash on it, and close to your side so your dog doesn't go into any stray areas, as that is the problem, getting into people's yard.  We don't need this.

Please share.

I wanted to get out that we will be hosting the 2018 Wide Open on June 8-10.

As of right now the plan will be to use the following courses, but will be subject to change--Blue Valley(uncertain if it will be normal, or modified), Cliff Drive--Will probably use a newer configuration than what is there now, based on conversations with the PnR about changes and additions I want to see.  WaterWorks--depends on proposed path changes....and there will be a special course TBD.  At this point I am uncertain if it will be a "replacement" Swope, if it will be something that I need work with PnR with another piece of their land, or if it is just going to be so special that we will have to have a local event to map out what gets used.  Basically will be a 4 round event

The A/Tier will be Pro/AM, there will not be a performance flight this year at the Wide Open.  The Players Pack will be determined over the next couple of months as to whether I am going to do a trophy only or not will depend on what comes up to value and make that determination.  Pricepoint will probably be in the $75/range for Am's and $125 for Pro, possible $150 for Open.  I am hopeful to have a B/C Tieron Sat/Sun for Int/Rec divisions, and it will be Trophy only, probably $50 entry (ADD pdga FEES if not current), and more than likely will be 3 rounds for that.  If things progress to where I want them to go, there may be an additional $20/person fee that will accompany the event, but that will be dependent upon course replacement.

What I am hopeful for is the following-
36 to 54--Tee sign sponsors--$100 each ($250 for player sponsored free entry)
Players--I want us to be back over 350 in 2018
Support staff--Ideally we have 4 people per course as our "leadership" squad, and then have at least 4-7 support staff/spotters etc....
Support leading up to the event on the courses--workdays will be announced in advance, and notify me of scenarios on courses that need to take place and be rectified
A good time for all of us to enjoy some great disc golf, rather playing, spectating, or supporting.

There are so many things I am leaving off, but I wanted to start to get the nuts and bolts about the event out as quickly as I could once the date was announced

Cliff Drive / Workday in November or December
« on: October 04, 2017, 03:45:56 PM »
Please vote, and let us know.  They will be bringing out their equipment and this time of year is great to remove items (primarily honeysuckle) and get us moving into the next phase of the course.  This will enable a much larger portion in the woods, and will make the course either a reconfigured 18 hole design, or possibly move to a 24 hole design until we have more programming in the park.

If you have any questions, please let me know.



Leagues / 2017 League is OVER--see you next year (NE--Cliff and Blue Valley)
« on: September 18, 2017, 12:57:15 PM »
Monday night leagues are off for the remainder of 2017.  Too much rain today and yesterday to play out there tonight.

The course is open, but will more than likely go "woody LONG" as he likes to play it long....  Look for information though about helping change the configuration of Cliff over the fall and winter months.

Look forward to playing casually or league next year.

Cliff Drive / Last League of the PDGA Season on 9/18--will there be more???
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:55:16 AM »

I am having next week as the last week for the PDGA league at the NE courses.  Our Ace Fund will be over $800.  We will be playing a modified layout, close to an LDO version as I tinker with new hole options.

I haven't decided if the week will be the last, as I will take account from the players on the 18th.  If we do one on the 25th, we may do an alternate shot doubles in an again altered format.

Letting folks know!



Cliff Drive / LDO work 2017 needed
« on: August 01, 2017, 01:32:31 PM »
Will be working at getting the course ready for the LDO.  Could use some help on the following areas--
#1-Trash and hillside cleanup.  I plan on meeting with the P&R about this though, so don't do it yet....we may be able to get out from it.
#2-mow the fairway, clear the deris
#3-Clear the hillside, the top shelf, and the wall as best we can
#4-in front of the pad has GROWN so much, need to chop that down a bit.  Mowing the fairways, getting the downed brush to the side
#5-mow/clean around the fairway and pins up top
#7--Clean the hillside of growth, weedwack and mow everything up to #38 pad, take out downed tree from storm (May get P&R on that as well)
#8--Clear out everything, you know the drill on this one!  This is the LDO special spot.
#9--clear out a little so we have VIP Parking

Let me know if you plan to help at any point.  With the MAC this weekend, and the bike races next weekend (holes #2-#8 will be closed) timing is not on my side.

General Banter / 2016 KCFDC Elections and Dinner-Saturday at Old Pike
« on: November 07, 2016, 12:36:41 PM »

Club Elections and Annual Meeting Scheduled for November 12!

On November 12, 2016, beginning at 5 pm, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club will hold its annual meeting and Club elections at the Old Pike Country Club, located at 5101 NW Old Pike Rd, Kansas City, MO 64118. This event is free to Club members who RSVP (fill out the form below) and will include a disc Swap Meet/Fly Mart, dinner, distribution of the 2017 KCFDC Club tags (based initially on the results of the Club Championships for those able to compete and then on a first-come, first-served basis for all others), and, of course, the election of new members to the Board of Director’s for the KCFDC. The Swap Meet begins at 5 pm and the dinner and elections will be from 6-8 pm. The Club will be responsible for cleaning up the venue and any attendees willing to remain and help clean will be much appreciated. In addition, the Board will be hosting a flex start event from noon-3pm at Old Pike that day, with all cards teeing off by 3 pm (the Board will provide score cards to those who wish). In addition, Club merchandise will be available for purchase at this event. Visit for more information leading up to the event.

The following Board of Director’s members will be completing their two year terms at the end of 2016: Kelly Babbit (current Board president), Pete Cashen (current Kansas Vice President), Nate Zier (current Missouri Vice President), Crispian Paul (current Secretary to the Board) and Mark Hogins (at-large member). Each year, the members of the Board meet after elections and vote amongst themselves which member will fulfill each position, meaning that the members who remain may not remain in their current roles. With only nine spots on the Board of Director’s, 2017 will be bringing big changes to the Board with five members leaving. If you are interested in joining the Board, are able to attend monthly Board meetings, and are willing to volunteer your time and energy outside of Board meetings, please attend this meeting if at all possible and if not, express your interest in consideration via the current Board of Director’s, whose contact information is available on the website.

General Banter / Cooper Arnold--Apology and thanks
« on: October 17, 2016, 10:15:20 AM »
I wanted to post this because I believe that it is over do.  Cooper has been playing very solid and though this isn't the reason for the post, it reminded me that I want to take time to apologize to him on the forum as well as thank him and congratulate him.

There are a few people that get my blood boiling at times, and Cooper had to take the brunt on what I felt at the time was a warranted conversation (man emotions huh?).  He moved away, he returned, and I wanted to say that I for one noticed a change that I welcomed.  It may be the lack of internet fodder as the culprit, but beyond that Cooper has stepped up and helped out in many areas around town, and I notice it.  I appreciate it, and I for one wanted to say thanks, and apologize for my tone in the past on the internet.

I have re-read some of the heated flames we spewed at each other, and it clearly wasn't my best side by any stretch, and I am completely as certain I could have gone a different way to get my message across, so I am ashamed of some of my own comments.

That being said, I wanted to say great play this past weekend as well as throughout the year, and my sincere thank you for your seemingly unselfish help that you have done as I have seen this past year.  I appreciate it, I love seeing it, and by all accounts I should make it known in the public circles that I for one thank you for your help as a perceived vision of mine (I am not delusional I know that my glasses are rose....) may not have reflected that.

I appreciate that you are playing very well also, seeing the scores, and the folks you beat this weekend, it is cool to see!

Congrats, and thank you sir!
