Tournaments / Mighty MO-May 10th
« on: March 03, 2009, 04:16:26 pm »
WW and Cliff Drive, should be the first event with Tee pads at Cliff (how long have I been threatening to have them there?).

We will start at WW and then off to Cliff in the afternoon. 

I will post details as I come up with the price plan.

RIght now I am thinking about the following-
PDGA-C-Tier
$60-open
$50-Pro divisions
$30-Adv divisions
$20-Int/Jr./Novice

There will be additional fees-
$2/PDGA
$2/Non-KCFDC member fee
$3 Ace fund
$10-non-PDGA fee

There is talk about having a charity event on the 9th @ Cliff Drive for the North East area (Indian Mound Association), I will post more here on that, I realize that there is the prostate event, but it is far away from this event, so I iwll try to ask that you choose what to do, but realize that our time for events is tight, and this date unfortunately was mapped out last December with the organization, based on our plan to have the Mighty Mo the day after the fund raiser.

More information to follow, it should be listed in the PDGA soon, sanctioning has been sent.

Cliff Drive / new holes
« on: February 25, 2009, 09:22:01 am »
There are new pin placements on the following holes-
#10, middle, tricky green, watch your putts or they will go down the hill
#11, new pad (by the reservoir, top of hill), 2 pins, one short with the road, and hill come into play, and the other is now SUPER long, on the North end of the reservoir.
#17 long island hole, there is a new placement for the pad as well.  Across the road in the triangle.

There are a few differences on the pads in a few locations, but it is getting there.

So come out and play, this course is getting good folks, it is getting close to being ready for prime time players....

Cliff Drive / work weekend 2/21-2/22
« on: February 10, 2009, 09:30:55 am »
I am planning on starting to get the pads formed up on this w/e.  I'll be grabbing the supplies from the P&R this week or next and then will need help setting things up.  THe only holes that may have to wait will be 1 & 7, and I also want to pick up trash by #1, #5 (top of the hill that has been dumped) and if adventurous, #12.....pipe dream......

I also hope to get the baskets all replaced during this time frame with the actual baskets instead of the practice baskets.

Any and all help would be appreciated, please spread the word.

Lets try 9-3 for a time frame on Saturday, and 10-3 on sunday.

Cliff Drive / changes acoming
« on: January 19, 2009, 12:17:04 pm »
The the new president, in disc golf, and the United states, it only makes sense that we try our hand at change in the dcisc golf community.

So I will do my best and work on the changes at Cliff Drive.

Here are a few if you have not played recently.

1-new teeing area, deeper, and to the south of the older location, look for more work to be done here.

2-cleaning of the side of the hill-new basket soon

3-new lower tee pad, makes an interesting shot now, a RHBH, will have to force a STABLE disc over, and have it flex to get there now, a LHBH, will probably have to tee with a forehand shot.  Thanks to Keizer

4-just keeping it clean baby-new basket soon

5-cleaning up and keeping the hill side open, will need a better stairs to climb though.

path to 5-6 new steps, thanks to Keizer and his man Don

6-keeping it clean baby

7-Look for a new placement way deep in the woods.  The area was cleared out by Keizer, then I went with him to clean it up some more, but this new placement will have a tricky shot for the deep placement, with the road as an OB possible.  Also the Teeing area will likely move north ahead of the water drainage issues, or could move way longer deep.

8-return of the old long placement is coming soon.

9-unsure, but there is a shelf long left of existing placement that I have thought about for awhile....

10-there will be a new placement to the left of the short, but not as long as the long, and place that hill drop off as an issue for the green.

11-new hole configuration coming soon, will be shorter, and the road will come into play.

12-why mess with the devil?  It hurts enough people already.

13-in my best HOMER, BORING, I need to plant trees, and shubbery

14-status quo

15-New placement behind the big tree to come

16-love this hole, doubt anything happens.

17-Tee area to move forward 70'-80', new pin placement on the island to come

18-probably status quo, though it depends on the water fountain going in.

And of course tee pads.  The hope is to form up the boxes this month on all except 1 & 7 which will require extra work, stay tuned as this course gets ready to be disected, and made fun of during the worlds.

General Banter / Course updates
« on: December 30, 2008, 09:10:45 am »
With the adverse weather that happened last weekend, please post in the appropriate course section items that you feel need attention to let the CC's know.

The weather as nice as it is, I am sure that some of you are out playing disc golf instead of typing about it in a chat room, so help those of us that can't get out to make us aware of what needs to be done.

Thanks,

Jack

Cliff Drive / Work Day 1-2-09
« on: December 29, 2008, 02:41:07 pm »
work day 1-2-09

Will be working on the following on Friday:
Hole #1 clearing up the teeing area, and woods.  Cleaning long #10 fairway more accessible to mowers
Creating a new alternate placement are to W of #2 pad which leads into
Hole #2, clearing it out so that we can extend #1 and create practice area in the field as well as develop a slope to allow mowers into the fairway on #2 to get down there and aleviate the work that we need to do.
Hole #7 creating the longer placement and cleaning out the area up to the road, there will be a window from the road if you choose to not go in through the current route.  Think about 100' deeper in the woods, that will be the new placement.  The window will be from the rocks, but if you go to far there you will be OB, and the drop zone will take you through the existing area, so you will be required to think long and hard about it.  (Those of you that can throw a lot farther than me.)

That should be plenty for the day.

I will be getting the supllies from the P&R to start to work on forming pads, that shuold happen either right before the ice bowl, or right afterwards.

Things are moving, lets get it started!

Ok,

so all of you people on here that played in the KCCC for disc golf I am looking for some help.  I would ask that you PM me some information about who was in charge of the KCCC for your company.  Here is why.

I have put together a little note and presentation for the folks to send about Disc golf and the Worlds for all 144 companies that played in it this year.  Obviously we can call each company and get some information ,but if you can send me the information on who to call for it would be great.  By the same token if you would like to be the person that gets this ball rolling with your company, that would be better as well. 

I think that the personal relationships within your organization is a better way to see success in this, than us sending a letter and asking.  By having your involvement it makes it easier for you to be the leader of the cause on this.

Please either PM me or e-mail me if you want to help.  If we can get even 10% of the KCCC businesses to buy tee-signs, that would be close to $5,000 for the worlds.  If we can get 20% to buy a business card ad that would be ~$3,000, hitting both of those numbers would be a great way for us to ensure an even better event than we are already working on.

Any help that you can do would be great.

Thanks,

Jack

Blue Valley / A disc is not that important....
« on: December 04, 2008, 11:36:13 am »
This is not the best way to retireve a disc from the lake.....

Car submerged in KC lake
Kansas City firefighters are trying to determine whether anyone is inside a car submerged in a pond at Blue Valley Park.

Dispatchers sent emergency crews to the site at 24th and Topping streets about 10:05 a.m. They reported that the top of the car was about a foot below the surface, and the car may have gone into the pond during the night.

Club Archives / Worlds Meeting 12-2 @ 7pm @ River Market
« on: December 01, 2008, 12:16:42 pm »
As stated at the Club Meeting, we will be meeting at the River Market for the last Worlds meeting of the year.

This is basically to look at new art, start to finalize projects, and work on new ideas to reach out to others that want to help.

After this meeting, all Executive meetings and the Worlds Meetings will be together on the same night.  So our next meeting is slated for 1/6 I believe at TMS, after the EC meeting.

Cliff Drive / League-Last Night September 29th
« on: September 24, 2008, 09:38:44 am »
The last Legaue night for Cliff Drive will be Monday September 29th.  With daylight vanishing, and my work schedule there is no way to make it work in October.  I will run the last league of the year for Cliff Drive this upcoming Monday, and then would encourage you all to head to Olathe for your Monday night fix.

In thinking of this, I will be working on Monday's to get the course in better shape for the Club Championships, so if you are bored and still want to come out on Mondays to Cliff Drive, I will gladly take volunteer help, we will finish ~7:30 on the 6th and by tyhen we shuold start to see plans for the pads to come in soon.

If someone wants to step up and run the league and can get things running by 5:00, by all means, contact me and we will extend it.

Thanks,

Jack
