Swope / Sun Burn Open July 6th-Kansas City C-Tier
« on: June 19, 2008, 09:42:06 AM »
Can we keep the pins short, or get them short for this event?  I really want us to be able to play through it in about 1:30 in tourney play  after playing Blue Valley, we need a rest.

Thanks,

Jack

Tournaments / Sun Burn Open July 6th
« on: June 18, 2008, 03:23:37 PM »
Looking for something to do on Sunday after all the family holidays are done from the 4th?  Heading to KC to get some family time, and need an escape clause to throw some plastic at chains?  Look no further the Sun Burn Open is here again, and bring your Coppertone to protect your skin for this one!

Registration will be at Blue Valley Shelter by hole # 1 from 8-9
1st round will be ~9:30 (you know me!)


Entries will be as follows: (Ace fund will be optional $3 at day of event)

Entry Fees:

Open - $50
All other Pro divisions - $40
Advanced divisions - $30
Intermediate - $20
Recreational - $20
Novice - $20

(If you're not a current PDGA member, add the $10 single event fee to your registration.  If you plan on registering for the PDGA, or renewing, please arrive early!!)

Round 1 will possibly be 27 holes at Blue Valley, all 27, in the shortest configuration (sure, that’s only like 11,000 feet of golf).  We may alter Blue Valley slightly and will cover any alterations in the players meeting.  In the event that Blue Valley is altered it may switch to an 18 hole format to emulate possible World’s Semi-Finals layout for timing mechanics, yeah you can be a tester of the worlds courses if you are here.

Round 2 will be at Swope for with a shortened version to give everyone an ace run.  More importantly it is a PDGA event, and getting you more points to qualify for the Worlds in 2009 here in Kansas City. 

Thanks,

Jack

(Obviously contact me with any questions.)

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive-Bringing back Monday Night League!
« on: June 18, 2008, 12:48:58 PM »
Starting June 23rd (everyone say happy birthday to Marley for me (you can say it in your head as well!), and Susan Taylor, and Savannah Hartness) Leagues will once again resume on Monday Nights. Blue Valley will still have a league on the First Saturday of the Month.

League fees for standard mini's apply.  $5 league, $1 ace fund, $1 discount to current KCFDC members.

League will begin at 6:00, with last entries being accepted no later than 5:50.  If you are running late, please call my cell phone 913.485.5123 to confirm a spot.

With this endeavor the hope is to continue to see more play at Cliff Drive, and work on getting Tee pads within the next 2 months.  I will be tearing out the weeds and honeysuckle to "clean the course" primarily from 1-10.  I will be moving #10 to the long placement, and will be adding an additional hole on #15 (shorter behind BIG tree to South).

Unfortunately I have to work this Saturday and attend a B-day party on Sunday, but plan on working out at the course over the weekend of the 28th.

Watch for more exciting information to follow. 

Ace Fund is currently $475, with 1/2 going to the player that hits it after club dues are paid for a year.

Looking forward to bringing back Monday night leagues to the center of the city.

Tell one, tell all, it will be great!!!!!
 ;D
