Cliff Drive / Work day Saturday August 8&9 at Cliff Drive
« on: July 28, 2014, 09:02:28 AM »
So,

This weekend I will be playing in the MAC, and may help get thing started (depends on my tee time), however that doesn't mean that the work is stopping.

I want to thank Keizer, Beckett, Mark Moseley(my neighbor), G$, Ted Keith, Penney, Jose Ossa for lending a hand on the over 60 hours of work we did this weekend at the course.  We essentially have the initial hole done for the new #1 hole.  We started to cut out the new #2 hole as well, but it (honeysuckle) needs to be pulled out and taken to the top to get it out and cleared.  That is essentially what I think will be needing to be done at the workday, is really yanking out that Honeysuckle that was cut.  I am hopeful that Keizer will bring not only his 4 wheeler to help expedite this, but also remember his cables this time.  I will attempt to get out there and cut or spray pain the trees that can go on the new fairway.  Initially this will be a "temp" pad, or possibly become the "short pad" for the new #2.

Yesterday Keizer and I were able to get most of the work done on #4, #5, and #6.  Though on #6 there needs to be some trimming (weedwhacking) done off the tee, and a few other locations, really on 4, 5, and 6, I didn't get to weed eat around the trees, and that should/could be done in about probably 30-45 minutes for all the holes.

Needless to say it does look very nice out there on those holes right now.  We also were able to clear most of the downed tree on #3.

So here is what I had listed heading into the weekend from last week's mental notes.  After I play at league tonight, I am sure I will have more possibly less to discuss.....

Here is the list of the work that needs to be done.  It is a COMPREHENSIVE LIST, so please don't think that we will be getting all of this done, but we shall try right?

Hole #1-weed eat, and trash clean up
New holes #1 and #2-remove Honeysuckle, clear out ravine of cut limbs from last weekend, complete trail, and continue to work on teeing area on #2 and expansion on the first green area.  This will require most of the work.
Hole #2-Mow the grass, clean up around green on the long placement.
Hole #3-weed eat around the side of the hill, weed eat around the pin placement, and expose the rock removing at the roots if possible the honeysuckle.  Work with P&R on getting the downed tree removed from the teeing area.
Hole #4-mow the fairway, and the side of the hill on the short placement
Hole #5-mow the front fairway, and the top green areas, and remove the downed Paw-paw trees
Hole #6-mow the fairway, and remove the downed tree.  That can be placed behind the basket down the ravine as we fill that with debris for better erosion control.
Clear better swath out of the woods towards #7 pad
Hole #7-work with P&R at removing the downed tree, clear the hillside, and the back pin placements for the Mini Golf clearing the rock all the way up to #8 tee where....
Hole #8 and the stage area all the way cleared out and expose the rock, clean up around the long pin, and go deeper into the woods between the stage and the long pin for the LDO.

That is all for now that is high on the list, we can worry about the other new holes after we get the new ones done.

Thanks,

Jack


So as you can see we really have right now #2 to mow and clean, and #3 to clear and expose the rock some more, then we need to work on the LDO area.   If you can make it out there this Saturday or Sunday that would be great.  If you can make it out there during the evening that would be great.  If you can get out and help make the course better we will all love you, just please let me know.  Most of the area on 2 is ready to be done with a standard push lawnmower.  Hole #3 will need loppers and a weed whacker....the LDO area needs all of that and your tender love to make this event even better.  We want to do as much around that area as we can folks for the Mini Golf, and to show off how we clean the area.

Now is the time to make it happen!

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive Workday Saturday July 26th-9am-2pm

Folks,

I need help.  We are getting closer and closer to being able to use the area that we have been working on, but we need more hands on deck to make it happen. 

Right now we have been averaging about 40 hours of work on the course on Saturday making it look better.  We really need to have about 70-90 this upcoming weekend to pound it all out and make it accessible for us to use the initial placements. 

We are expanding and want to have the holes ready to go soon, but need to have help.  In order to do that, we really need to have about 10-15 people come out and help for about 4 hours each.  Some of us will stay longer, and that is ok, we can clear it up.  The other option will be to have it cover 2 days, where we do some of the work on Saturday and Sunday.

I know that is a lot to ask, but ultimately you want a better course, and I want to help make it for you.

If you can come on Saturday or Sunday, please let me know and I will make a decision by Thursday on whether or not Sunday looks like a good plan. 

The following weekend with the MAC will not allow me time to work, though we may have enough started to make it work, then the next weekend will be the clean up weekend in preparation for the Lion's Den Open in which we will be working the hillsides and areas for the LDO.  That area should be manageable with about 10-20 hours of volunteer time (hopefully).

So please let me know how you can help, and when you can help.  Rakes, shovels, and extra hands are the most needed items, as well as YOUR TIME.   That is really what makes this go, we have to cut and remove primarily honeysuckle where we are now, as well as gather up some trash.  Overall, it is looking wonderful, and you can you helped and have good karma flow through you.

Thanks,

Jack

Was the initial plan, probably going to move back to the 7/28 format tonight.  Though we did get quite a bit done out there last week (May be able to play the new #1 and #2 BACKWARDS.....) I don't want to get things moving in the wrong direction quite yet.

SO tonight we will be playing nickles from the pads.  I will be moving probably #2, #4, #8(long) #17(peninsula) if I can get out there in time. I hope to be out there by 5:30ish to do this and we want to tee by 6:00, so please be out and bring exact money if you can.

Looking forward to another great night in the hot time of July.

As a reminder we have the following format tonight at league:

7-14-14-Shortening some holes, playing to practice baskets on #1, #8, #11


You know you want to play this park, so stop on by and see what we have in store for you tonight!

I should be there about 5:30-5:40 to start taking registrations.  EXACT money ($6 for Club members, $7 for non Club) is always appreciated.

Cliff Drive / Work Day Saturday July 19
« on: July 11, 2014, 11:26:13 AM »
I will be out by the practice basket working tomorrow from 9am until I stop.

If interested in coming out, please do.  I will probably get some food in the middle of the day for those that are there.

I am working on the continuation of the new holes to the north of the practice basket, that will be 2 new holes.

Probably going to mow #5 fairway as well as try to get the tree removed from the downed stump on #6.

I know about the trees on #3, and #7, but will be working with P&R on those.

Thanks,

Jack

Cliff Drive / League Results 7/7/14
« on: July 08, 2014, 10:03:30 AM »
http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/18708

Results on a hot and slightly circular wind.  Beckett took home the low score with a par 56 last night as we played #13 and #17 in the longer positions.  He had 3-5's as well on the night.  That made Beckett the winner in the Masters as well.

Jose held off Dick by one stroke in the open field to take home the cash there, and Ryan Westa held off Bill Shinoski by a stroke to take home the KC Kash (I owe him $9).  the results from the event will be based on the division that people normally play in the PDGA on the site, but here is how it really ranked last night:

Open
Jose Ossa-57=$9
Dick Parker-58
Travis Corporan-71

Masters
Beckett Carduff-56=$9
Kelly Babbit-59
Jack Lowe-59

Advanced
RAW-68=$9 KCKash
Bill Shinoski-69
Jason Allen-79

The ace fund is still being calculated from the weeks that I wasn't running it.  At this point I am confident to state that it is in excess of $463 (last entry is $455, and then $9 from last night =$464).

I moved a few pins last night as well, so we will try again next Monday, the forecast looks to be a little cooler, and hopefully we can have some more come out and enjoy the great Cliff Drive!

Thanks all!!

Cliff Drive / PDGA LEAGUE-NORTHEAST COURSES-Begins 7/7/14
« on: June 30, 2014, 02:11:09 PM »
Appropriately 7-7=14 on Monday night I will run the PDGA league at Cliff Drive again.

Here is the scheduled locations and probable pin settings:
7-7-14-Longer as it sits now, I may move a few things this week, but doubtful.  All nickels.
7-14-14-Shortening some holes, playing to practice baskets on #1, #8, #11
7-21-14-Try to use new holes #1 and #2 in this format will skip playing #9, #17, #18, play from #17pad to #18, all nickles
7-28-14-Back to all nickels.  Moderate length
8-4-14-BLUE VALLEY NIGHT-Mixture of "executive and BIG Course, kicking out 14, 17, 18, will have maps.
8-11-14-Pre Lion's Den Layout-SHORTY-SHORT SHORT-hope to have new places in play here.
8-18-14-Post LDO format-same unless we do it differently.
8-25-14-Starting to shorten the course for loss of daylight
9-1-14-Labor Day No League
9-8-14-A few more shorter holes
9-15-14-last league of PDGA night, TLC layout from final round (believe that is the weekend before)
9-22-14-Non PDGA League-Random Doubles
9-29-14-Last League of Season-Group decision, thinking about bagtag doubles-then alternate short format

Food for thought, but wanting to mix it up a little on the league play out here at Cliff.  Next year hopefully someone else will run it, but in the future, big belief that Cliff will attempt to be the experimental league with all notions open to try.  Including Triples, and format nights, ala 6-6-6, etc for people to experiment and learn new games.

I missed this in the league manual so we will try to be more different moving forward out here.  Also while you are in here looking, be advised that much work is about to be started at Cliff Drive in the upcoming months to alter the configuration.  We have lost many trees, and Drew has started the Tree Fund for a reason out here.  It is exciting and hard to deal with change, but I am hopeful that the changes that take place will enamor you more to this great place to play disc golf!

27
No frills, but after the Holiday, I will be returning the NE league to the Monday Night PDGA league.  I am uncertain who has been running it, but if someone is, I will help make it happen.  Just means an extra $1 on league night for the PDGA, and that portion that comes to the club will continue to be added to the TLC funds for the course.

Please let me know your thoughts.

What no love?  C'mon folks it is home to some of the better courses away from KC.  If you haven't played it, you are missing out.  Great people, wonderful courses, and all within a 3 short hour drive from here.

You should get up there at some point, soon.
