Can you come out and help?  Would love to see a few folks out here for certain!

For those that don't know, typically on the first Monday of the Month the KCFDC League night is at Blue Valley-This aligns with the Cliff Drive League night normally on Mondays as well.

The ace fund between the 2 courses will be shared so, it carries over accordingly.  The schedule for the leagues as of today appears to be as follows:

April 7th Blue Valley-"Inner Course"-playing from the short pads and the course within the course

May 5th-Big Blue Valley

*****Note Change in JUNE to align with the Wide Open*****

June 16th-Wide Open Configuration-Big Blue

July 7th-Mix of use of courses for 18 hole safari style

August 4th-BIG BLUE (Last one of the year for the League Night)

I know you may be asking why is August the last, well, we end League in September due to daylight, and there are not leagues for the Holidays on Monday on the NE side.  THat would make it Memorial Day in May and Labor Day in September.  Unfortunately Labor Day kills the September schedule for the league.  Matt MAY decide he wants to run it on the holidays, but historically I have encouraged people to enjoy the holiday with family and friends.  If you must play in a league, the fine folks in OooooooLAYyyyyyyyTHAaaaaaa  will gladly accept you in their confines on these Mondays.

We look forward to having another great year of Disc Golf in NE.

Cliff Drive / 2014-The Extrodinary Leagues of the Northeast
« on: March 17, 2014, 10:03:29 AM »
In case you only read in the Cliff Drive Section on this forum.....(well you do get an extra credit point for reading this section only, as well as a keepsake to be determined later.....)  I posted this in the league section, but it does pertain to this course as well as Blue Valley!

Northeast League will be commencing March 31.  It will be at Cliff because....well March 31 isn't the first Monday of the month now is it?

Matt Eklund will be starting out to run leagues out there, we may need help over the year to make it work, but suffice it to say, we will get it done.

What does that mean to you?

It means get out here and play disc golf.  It also means that on April 7th we will be at Blue Valley.

It also means that by playing leagues out at Cliff Drive you will from time to time get to play on some of the "new design" holes this year.  Every week will be slightly different, in that you may experience a different throw from the previous week.

We will be shooting to start on the first 2 weeks by 5:45, so try to be there by 5:30 with registration ready, after that we should be good to go.

If you too want to help keep the league running strong, and step up to learn how, just ask.  We will make it very easy on you.

This year I also plan on giving away "league trophies" for those that make it to at least 13 leagues for some varying averages, attendance, and work day partners.  Some will be subjective scoring, and others will be based on stats.  No PDGA league this year will happen unless someone else wants to run it at Cliff, we will allow it (you would only pay $1 to that person extra) if someone steps up to do.  Otherwise we will be a KCFDC and Cliff Drive/Blue Valley ONLY league.

We may at one point end up playing a modified 27 hole round, with 9 holes of Mini golf thrown in the mix as well.

As my time allows it to help be creative we may do some crazy things at cliff this year, so watch as we move towards more disc golf in new lands out here!

Cliff Drive / 2014-the year that Cliff Changed-
« on: February 25, 2014, 10:15:36 AM »
Beverly Hills Cop - PHIL!.wmv


Ok so it's not Phillip, its Cliff, and this is the year that he change.  Will be looking for more Taggarts, and less Rosewoods, but I think that if you come out, you get points for the change as well.

Would love to here the plans for cliff whens the next work day I got a chain saw  ;)


Couple more holes going in between #2 and Reservoir Dr, for starters. Work has already begun, waiting now for the ground to dry a bit and then we can get back to honeysuckle removal in that area.


This past weekend I was able to start to look at the extension on hole #6 (current configuration) and then the new placement as well to lead us out of the woods.  Then looking beyond that it gets fun.  Now I have been told about the trail that is coming in that I initially thought was going to be there is going to not happen. 

It will be a tougher terrain sort of, with a few obstacles that I need to mitigate to ensure some type of safety, but I think that it can be done, and it will be COOL.

THe holes Mike mentioned above are also partially done, and need more work.  Realistically it is a never ending project, but with the right tools, and enough Axle Foley's out there and Taggarts we should have a total of about 100-150 hours to make this happen with everything but the pads.  I will work with the city on those, and ensure that they are the same as what we have out there (may not be colored however) to make this course even better!

Next weekend (Saturday March 1, 2014) though on Saturday go to Blue Valley to help with the workday out there at our big Brother Course!

Cliff Drive / Leagues in 2014
« on: February 18, 2014, 12:17:16 PM »
I can't commit to running leagues this year for the NE on  Mondays, I will be supporting while in town, but need to see if anyone out here is willing to help ensure that we make it another year out there.

I hope this weekend to trudge through and start to tackle some of the additional course changes.  With all the changes that have been proposed, I have a good feeling that now we will be better served to start to make the changes beyond the first  new holes in the woods, and look to really enhance the course.  As you may be aware there will be a new ERTA track cutting through the course at times, it shouldn't impact the disc golf at all in most instances.  As we move to add more activities within the park, look to see a better improved course within the area.  The front 10 holes will be nicely carved out in many places it will feel the same, and in others it will be enhanced, longer, tighter, and more challenging is the motto that I am working on....(no not tooo long, but some length for certain).

Let's get some things moving and shaking on the course this weekend.

Plan of Attack - We will be cutting tree shoots and honeysuckle off of the fairway trees and adding said brush to the large brush pile that are scattered throughout the course. P&R is going to remove the piles once we are done (also remove dead trees/stumps). I would ask anybody who planned on coming out to bring a hand saw, I only have two extra. As an added incentive to the volunteers - we will be hitting Hi-Boys (best burger in town) for lunch afterwards. We will get started @ 11, I will be out there @ 10:30. Hope to see ya'll out there.

We need more people to help make this course better and ready by summer for the events that we have planned.  I think that even this spring that the City of Fountains event is moving to earlier in the year, so lets' get this party started, and enjoy more playing time when it is nicer out there!

Barter Town / customized 2001 Kawasaki Vulcan 750
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:34:17 AM »
ASking around $3k, negotiable,
 custom work - full body faring/windshield, hard bags, fenders, Mustang seat, tank belt, rack, sissy bar, chrome, etc.  It is very rare.  My understanding is that the custom stuff was only produced one year for this very bike - modeled and molded from the older Police Kawasaki 1000 bikes.  It has a new rear tire, oil change, tune-up, belt/cam chain tensioner.  It has been owned by me and my father (Family Member here folks).  It has 50+K well-maintained miles.  The miles include several trips to California/Southwest and back as well as commuter miles in CA.  It has never been down.  It is one of Kawasaki's best motorcycles/engines and has been for some time.
 
I am also open and may prefer trades for the right front-wheel, AWD, or 4x4.

If interested in some photos, let me know and I can send them to you.  HIt me up with a phone call or PM, I am travelling a lot, so tough to get a hold of at time.

Tournaments / ICE BOWL 2014 - January 25th and 26th
« on: August 26, 2013, 04:23:54 PM »
The dates will be January 25th and 26th I am sure, lets break some records this year!  Who is with me on this?

$10K and 500 Players for the 2014 Kansas City Ice Bowl


The Kansas City Ice Bowl is held every year in January at Rosedale Park. Its purposes are raising funds to fight hunger, having fun, and connecting our disc golf community in a positive way to the community at large. Our goals this year are to have 500 participants and to raise $10000 for our traditional charities: the Bishop Sullivan Center’s St James Food Pantry and Harvesters: the Community Food Network.

While the emphasis of the KC Ice Bowl is on charity and fun, we want as many disc golfers to play at least one, and hopefully, both rounds. This is how it works. You need to post an 18-hole score on either of Rosedale Park’s courses to qualify to play the nine-hole final round. Here’s when you can get your 18-hole round in:

Saturday, 9 pm: Shotgun start: Rosedale Top Course.
Saturday, 1 pm: Shotgun start: Rosedale Top Course
Saturday, 8am – 3pm: Flex start: Down Under
Sunday, 8am – 10 am: Flex start: Top or Down Under

For the shotgun starts, groups are limited to six per tee. The Ice Bowl tournament director, Ben Crosby, will do his best to accommodate all requests to play with your buds.

For the flex starts, especially on Sunday morning, please limit groups to five players. You can choose your own group or we will help you find one. Please note that to play the Sunday’s afternoon nine-hole final round, you need to turn your first-round  scorecard in no later than 12:30 pm.

Unlimited mulligans are for sale to be used during the first round only. Their use is highly encouraged as all mulligan proceeds go to our charities. In fact, we challenge you to buy an Ice Bowl Championship!

For the nine-hole second round, cards are determined by ranking players according to their first-round scores. This means that you'll likely be very closely matched (or at least have very similar scores) with others on your card. Players will be told which nine holes to play (top 1-9, top 10-18, DU 1-9, DU 10-18. The player on each card with the best total score wins a DX disc. The person with the lowest 27-hole score keeps the traveling trophy for a year.

The names on the KC Ice Bowl trophy include CD Steiner 1998, Laron Harris 1999, Todd Henry 2000 & 2002, Al Schack 2001, Mike Davis 2003, Brant Pfister 2004, Bobby Villarreal 2005, Brad Meyrs 2006, Otto Spiers 2007, Bryan Guthrie 2008 & 2012, Nick Winkelbauer 2009, Cecil Cameron 2010, Leo Daprato 2011, Eric McCabe 2013.

Potluck Lunch/Chili Contest
One of the wonderful traditions of the KC Ice Bowl is bringing food to share, especially chili. Those who bring chili are automatically entered into the Chili Contest, which awards a grand prize. Please let Rhonda Crosby know at 785.424.3672 or rhondacrosby@gmail.com that you’re bringing chili and/or other food to share.

Prizes for the Closest-to-the-Pin Contest or Raffle

Cliff Drive / 8/26/13 League
« on: August 26, 2013, 10:32:49 AM »
Folks,

I am going to be a late starter at league.  I am meeting with some people from the ERTA and Cliff Climbing groups tonight to discuss putting in trails adjacent and in conjunction with the disc golf course.  I will be there at 5:30ish, but will be out walking around the area quite a bit, and unfortunately not able to play.

If I could get some help running league tonight I would appreciate it. 

Thanks,

Jack
