Blue Valley / Leagues PDGA NE Style--2016 Monday nights in HNE
« on: March 22, 2016, 01:03:38 PM »
I will be returning the PDGA leagues to the NE.  This year we are blessed to have many PDGA leagues, this is the original one though!  :-D

We will be rotating between leagues on the courses of Cliff and Blue Valley.

Here will be the league nights:

APRIL 11th--CLIFF

APRIL 18TH--CLIFF

APRIL 25TH--CLIFF drive league (i know it shows every other week.. trust me the 25th is a qualifier at cliff league or not) 2 spots

MAY 2ND-BLUE VALLEY

MAY 9TH-OFF WIDE OPEN RECOVERY

MAY 16TH-CLIFF

MAY 23RD-CLIFF

MAY 30TH-OFF HOLIDAY

JUNE 6TH-BLUE VALLEY

JUNE 13TH-CLIFF--FINAL PDGA ROUND 1

--------------------------------------------------------

JUNE 20TH-CLIFF

JUNE 27TH-CLIFF

JULY 4TH-OFF HOLIDAY

JULY 11TH-BLUE VALLEY (WILL NEED SOMEONE TO RUN THIS ONE--AM WORLDS)

JULY 18TH-CLIFF---PDGA ROUND 2

JULY 25TH-CLIFF

AUGUST 1ST-CLIFF (LION'S DEN WARMUP)

AUGUST 8TH-OFF LDO RECOVERY

AUGUST 15TH-BLUE VALLEY

AUGUST 22ND-CLIFF BIRTHDAY SPECIAL

AUGUST 29TH-CLIFF

SEPTEMBER 5TH-OFF HOLIDAY

SEPTEMBER 12TH-CLIFF

SEPTEMBER 19TH-CLIFF--FINAL PDGA ROUND 2

SEPTEMBER 26TH-CLIFFOR BLUE VALLEY (TBD) FINAL LEAGUE OF NE LEAGUES


This is the official PDGA league nights.  Based on attendance and interest I may elect to run more league nights on Monday's not listed, with the exception of Holiday's.  I will work to listen and see the level of interest on this, but suffice it to say, league will be returning to the Historic Northeast on Monday nights and starting with a rather large ace fund of $565.

Please reply if you have questions.

Thanks,

Jack

General Banter / College basketball Brackets....AGAIN!
« on: March 14, 2016, 04:55:21 PM »
Hard to imagine, but this is the 12th year of this one.  Primarily started with people from in here, and has spread quite a bit.

Here is the breakdown:

Ok KC Disc Golfers and Friends, it's time again to pick your winners and losers, in a quest to be the best and of course win that money. You are invited to fill out as many brackets as you choose. They are back to $10 each. You may either pay Jack Lowe or Dick Parker. If you have PayPal, you can send your money (Friends and Family) to jlowekc@att.net. Please put a note on the transaction that says it's for basketball and who it's from so Jack doesn't get confused. If you want to invite someone to join that is a trusted friend, let either Jack or Dick know who they are and what their email is so we can invite them. Finally, ALL BRACKETS MUST BE PAID FOR, before the end of next weekends games. If you want credit you have to talk to Jack and he already said NO. Jack will post payouts after everyone is in.

from Dick.....

Hit me up with a PM, we moved back to $10 from $20 last year.....

« on: January 18, 2016, 04:30:37 PM »
June 18/19 - East Vs West - KCFDC -


The dates are announced. 

The Captains are now announced:

Reigning Champs (West Side)--Joe Hesting

Challengers (East Side)--Zeke Henry

More information to be forth coming, we have a few other items to go through, you know, Ice Bowl, Leagues, Wide Open.....but suffice it to say having the captains and the dates are pretty good shape right now.  The Captains will meet to discuss locations, qualifiers, etc...and then that information will come on out.

Thanks to all who help make this happen!

Blue Valley / 2016 League Plan
« on: January 04, 2016, 09:59:54 AM »
Planning on returning the 2016 Northeast League in a different format (well slightly)

Will move this to the 1st Monday of the month at Blue Valley and then the 3rd Monday of the month at Cliff Drive.  This year not a big deal but we may move June's month to align with the Wide Open closest date to the course that may be in use that year.

I believe the Ace Fund is a little over $500 and will continue to be used at both parks.  With Doug and Jim working continually here at Blue Valley we will see shorter courses to align with the possible aces at both now.

Look for more information as we get closer, but right now April 4th looks to be the return to disc golf at Blue Valley for leagues.

Leagues / 2016 Regular league Season
« on: January 04, 2016, 09:49:16 AM »
Typically we have leagues run from April-September here in KC.

I am going to put in historically what we have been looking at for leagues in the KC area.  As we start the new year, please be mindful that there are current leagues running around in town during the "off season"  they include:

Monday-Glow Olathe PC

Wednesday-Glow Harmon Park

Thursday-Glow Water Works

Saturday-Down Under @ 12:30

There are a few other "leagues for fun" you can read about or find on courses out there as well.

Most of those leagues start at 6, you can find more information in each of the appropriate parks thread. 

The regular league season constitutes typically paying $5 for the league and an additional $1 for the ace fund.  Those individuals that are current KCFDC members do receive a $1 discount to play.

Mondays--

Olathe's Prairie Center and Lake Olathe's courses (aka Birdland) they alternate months check site to see information.

Rosedale-New Players League Night (Free to play)

Rosedale-Ladies Night Out (Free to play)

Cliff Drive and Blue Valley (2016 will alternate between the 2 courses with the 1st Monday being at Blue Valley and the 3rd Monday at Cliff in the last few years this has been a PDGA League, and will be again this year) Northeast League Night

Tuesdays--

Swope Park

Shawnee Mission Park (Mike has held PDGA Leagues here, I expect he will again at some point this year)

Old Pike (NON-KCFDC league, but still fun place to play)

Wednesdays--

Rosedale

Liberty Bad Rock Creek

Blue Springs?????--Sorta fell apart last year, looking for help to support it again this year

Thursdays--

Water Works--You know it, be there!

Pleasant Hill-Beginners League-Low entry or none

Fridays--

WyCo--Looking for help running it this year again, Beckett has stated he will do quite a bit, but looking for those that will help when he can't

Legacy Park--Mixed formats


If I missed anything or anyone (Rob??? uncertain your plans this year with Wandering) please put it in here.  I believe that Eric Kolkmeier will be the actual director of leagues so you if you prefer to PM him about your plans that is ok as well.

Looking forward to another great year of disc golf in Kansas City!

Water Works / Trash cans?

Tournaments / Ice Bowl 2016
« on: October 26, 2015, 01:49:26 PM »
EDIT--Here is the FLYER for the event!

https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/kcfdc-docs/docs/2016+IB+Entry+KC.pdf




More information to follow, but hope to have a bigger and better turnout than last year, and looking to break the $10k mark for the charities.

Let's get this going!

Saturday January 16/Sunday January 17-Satellite event Location TBD (MO/KS location)

Saturday January 23/Sunday January 24-Satellite event Location TBD (Other State Location)

Saturday January 30-Rosedale Shotgun starts at 9:30 AM and 1:00 PM

Saturday January 30th-Rosedale ShotGUN start 10:00

Sunday January 31-Swope-Rolling starts 8:30-10:00, final 9 ~2:30


Looking for help on my side from people running their location event prior to the "Ice Bowl Weekend"  Wanting to run just one satellite event in each state this year, one state per day, so say, Olathe on Saturday, Liberty Sunday, then the following weekend P-Hill on Saturday and Shawnee Mission Park on Sunday.  I will make it relatively easy, and be sure to print more mulligans this year.  Remember you can't use the mulligans on the final 9 at Rosedale.

Then needing more people to help with Saturday at Rosedale with shot gun starts.

Sunday needing teams to help with the following:

Registration/Checkin-2 people every 2 hours=6 people needed

Merchandising-2 people every 2 hours=8 people needed

Chili Contest helpers-1 to 2 people from 9-11

Scoreboard facilitation-Need 8 people from 11-1:30, 2 people per board (and someone to check in people from Sunday's round)

Other things needed......

Big power generator for up to 30 crock pots--Danny Rodriguez??

Beer--Covered-Multiple KC places

Course set Short up top and Down Under

Apple Cider & Hot Totties

Ensure Water is available everywhere

Club to provide--Crackers, plates, utensils, cheese, sour cream.....

Others bring Chili (Be sure to register, to be in contest must be checked in by no later than 10:00 AM on Sunday with Chili Handlers"

Desserts from those of you that like to bring them, we all enjoy them....

Rum Balls--There can be only ONE!

Course Set Up-Visually attract everyone to the area

Press Releases in January and Friday beforehand

Large Coffee?  Who has a line here?  I may, but need to check, anyone else have that coffee connection we need to have out there?




There will be other items come up, but I wanted to get this out so we can start to plan.  Most importantly right now is that if you want to run a Pre-event at your course, reach out to me so we can get the proper information available to you to run it, and get the P&R behind it as well.  IF, and there is a BIG IF, we enjoy the 36 hole layout at Swope during the Club Championship, I may elect to go with a 36 hole layout for the final 9 at Swope instead.  More to follow, but I did want to get out what I am thinking along the lines for the biggest local event we have, and to show us all off to the world!
