I'll head out there around 6ish, but with all this rain, I really don't want to trample the ground too much.  Lets try to get everyone out on 4-20 for the event at Cliff unstead, it was afterall the coolest place to get high according to the pitch in 2005 (referencing the rock climbing.....what else?)

Cliff Drive / Ruthanne Harper Disc Golf Course at Cliff Drive
« on: April 08, 2009, 10:02:00 AM »
For many of you you don't know her, but most of you should thank her.  Ruthanne was the major reason we got the PIAC approval for Cliff Drive and Blue Valley.  I would like us to start to refer to Cliff Drive as Ruthanne's, but I doubt it will happen.  I feel a great loss for her, she was inspiring and had a passion that I hope I can gain as I grow.

Tribute | Ruthanne Harper kept busy with civic causes
By MEREDITH RODRIGUEZ
The Kansas City Star

Who: Ruthanne Harper, 74, of Kansas City.

When and how she died: March 29, after a long illness.

Hard worker: Harper worked as an AT&T executive for years. As a district manager, she became highly regarded, according to friend Meg Conger.

A promotion letter in 1982 mentioned her “extraordinary capabilities” and what a “perceptive” employee she was.

“She did have a keen perception not only of people but of situations,” Conger said. “She was very clearheaded, very keen, had a very keen mind.”

After retiring in 1989, Harper turned her attention to the city she loved.

Devoted to the city: A proud urban dweller, Harper spent most of her life in the city’s Northeast area. She grew up on South Myrtle Drive before moving a few blocks into a Queen Anne- style home on Gladstone Boulevard.

She became involved in organizations like Old Northeast Inc. and Scarritt Renaissance Neighborhood Association. She advocated for Corinthian Hall to be the home of the Kansas City Museum and led renovation efforts for the museum.

Cliff Drive, the only scenic byway in an urban area of Missouri, would not have been what it is without Harper’s work, Conger said.

“Some people involved in politics like the spotlight,” Conger said. “She was not a ball hog at all. She would do a lot of work, not get credit, never let it bother her. She didn’t get enough credit for all the things she did.”

Respected: Much of Harper’s political activity involved advising people who were in positions of influence.

She was appointed to several terms on the Kansas City Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee and the Public Improvement Advisory Committee.

“Her insights and her opinions were very valued,” Conger said. “People listened to Ruthanne. They paid attention when she spoke. She didn’t say a lot, but when she did speak, it was an intelligent, insightful observation.”

She stuck to straightforward beliefs. She believed strongly a city should offer quality basic services. She also believed in a transparent political process guided by policy, not politics.

“She called you out if she thought you were not following the rules,” Conger said. “She was very fair, and she had a strong sense of justice.”

Busy: Harper never married or had children, but she lavished love on her friends and on her dog, Muffin.

“To be able to say you were a friend of Ruthanne Harper’s was a very special thing,” Conger said.

Harper always kept busy.

“She had no free time,” Conger said. “She spent every minute of every day making it count.”

Survivors include: A sister and a brother.

The last word: “I had a tremendous amount of respect for her, for her success, and her life made me drive harder to be successful myself,” said her brother, Jim Bond Perleth. “Her brains, her integrity, her honesty, it all rolled into one wonderful package.”

General Banter / Race tickets April 25, & 26
« on: April 08, 2009, 07:16:32 AM »
I got 4 tickets for the entire weekend.  They are with a group that has an RV, they are infield tix, they cost $140/each, you pick up a wrist band for the entire weekend so you can come and go all weekend long.  There is a group of 10 of these seats, I have 4, a buddy has 2, so we have 60%.  I will be in Lamoni this weekend, so these tickets need to go.  The guys already have a rooftop seating, these are the front row of turn 2 I believe ( I have not used the seats yet, and I am already missing the first race.....)

Let me know if you aer interested.  I believe it is Truck racing on Saturday, and open wheel on SUnday.

Cliff Drive / League 4-6-09
« on: April 07, 2009, 09:50:14 AM »
Upon my depature of work, and the subsequent drive by of Cliff Drive, outside of seeing new presents donted by undoubtably the wonder new neighbors, there was a television, a bed, and some other new items that if I had a hankering to fix I might make use of...I saw three lonely gentelmen throwing plastic at shiny metal objects.  They then gave this rather large Floridian man an oragne card with numbers on it that appeared at my house.  With this large Floridian, there was "heat" a disc ctaching dog that apparently can not jump as high as a "Darby" but is able to catch these discs better, and is teaching one "darby" how to enjoy the discs....the numbers on the card meant nothing to me though they said the following:
Arturo-52
Demian-67
M Hayps-67

THis large floridian then consumed a few barley flavored water bottles with something called Budweiser in them, and amongst all the watching, the mighty Green Spartans valiant to a point, were sliced by the Roy Williams lead Jayhawks to another tournament win to the Kansas Faithful.....oh wait, sorry, he left for a better school......

I'll be out there on MOnday the 13th the new terror begins, where we don't wait for Friday any more!

Cliff Drive / League Results 3-30-09
« on: March 31, 2009, 11:32:40 AM »
with wind blowing harder at the begining of the round than by the end, it was a fun night of 17 disc golfers out to enjoy the evening.  Though many tried, no one was able to pry away the #1 tag that had many getting to league to play.  With the addition of 4 people of the older persuasion, we had a masters group.  Just so you all know, if there is enough people to warrant a division it will be offered.  Typically over the last few years of leagues we have not had enough to warrant anything other than Open/Women.  I have not carried KCFDC Kash for am's, and most people have been pretty acceptable to this.  You need to have at least 3 to open a division, and if you have it, I will make it!!

Here are your results, from a less than muddy experience that was anticipated.
Open
Arturo-54
Jack-55
CD-59
Bobby-61
Dick-63
Danger-64
Demian-67
Spencer(Keizer insert last name here)-70
Matt Hummel-75
Sean Snider-75
Keizer-76 (I still have your yella putta in my car as well)
Jeremy Wade-79 (you left a 166 Pro-Valk on #10, I found it Tuesday, in my car now)

Masters
Chappy Chapman-64
M&M-73
Lefty 2-77
Rick-81

Women's
Becky-93

We shall try again, we still may need to start by 5:45 next week, and then after that 6:00 should be good.  I have class next Monday so I doubt that I am in attendance at Cliff Drive, if someone can step up and run league next week, that would be great!!
--Morales?  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....I had to laugh at the thought of it.....No seriously.....ROFL.... ;D
