General Banter / New Officers for the Club
« on: January 30, 2008, 09:55:56 AM »
I am sure that our incoming President will chime in here, but I wanted to thank everyone that came out last night to voice opinions and show support for the KCFDC.  I wanted to get a list of the new officers, and we will update the pages over the next few weeks to reflect these changes.

Thanks to all of you for allowing me the honor of being President since 2001.

Here is your new 2008 EC Board

President-Rick Rothstein (2 Year term)

VP of MO-Jack Lowe (2 Year term)

VP of KS-Tom Butler (Interim term 1 year)

Secretary-Chris Timko (Interim term 1 yr)

Treasurer-John Chapman (2yrs)

Sgt @ Arms-Tavish Sanders (1 yr remaining)

Course Coordinators(1 yr positions)

Swope-Matt Hays

Rosedale Up top-Dennis Freeman

Rosedale Down Under-Jay Rivard

Olathe-Bob Hyatt

Water Works-Bill Neenan

WyCo-Tracy Walker

Cliff Drive-Mike Penney

Blue Valley-Mark Morales

Yates Elementary-John Theiss

Pleasant Hill-Dan Coffman

Shawnee Mission Park-Dirk Hacker


Now we have 17 people total on the EC board.  This club is growing, and we need more people to help out.  When we had 5 courses, back in 2000 it was a little easier, now that we have 11, and plans for 3-4 more over the next year, we need more support, locally at each course.  Take pride and ownership for your course.  You make the difference, and we all need to make the difference when it comes to our courses.  Teach someone how important it is to spend even 1 hour a month at the course to help its beauty.  We are the people that can make the difference, each one of us owe that to our sport.

Thanks again , and I look forward to continuing to make KC the best place in america to play disc golf!!

General Banter / EC Agenda 1/10/08
« on: January 09, 2008, 04:08:00 PM »
All are encouraged to attend, we will be meeting at TMS 701 SW Blvd KCK.  I would encourage all those that want to run for a position to be in attendance, at this point, I would say that we will probably be having the elections after the Ice Bowl, where we can let the other 260+ people that should be playing know about the event as well.  If you have any questions, please call me.



Thanks,



Jack













KCFDC E/C Meeting 1/10/2008

6:30-Call to order
6:32-See if we have Meeting Minutes from September Meeting (No Quorum)
6:35- Election location ideas, date  before or after Ice Bowl? , nominations to date

(Shiners lodge-$130, +$50 for a bartender)

(Possible Westin for free)
6:55- Ice Bowl-Rick, have New Belgium on board, where we need other help with, Chili, power, more foods….
7:10-’09 Worlds-Jack-Hotel, is $129-$139 @ Westin too much for our players to pay, does it make more sense to have the event in OP for $109 instead, and should we push downtown with all new amenities towards our players, I think we should, what do others think?  Courses need to get list of what every CC wants done to make their course an A++ ready place to play.

7:25 Newsletter Information-Rick What do we want, and how to get it all online, and available for print to those that need it?  Do we send only the online note with a link and basic advertisement on postcards, or do we continue to make an actual dead tree version?

7:35- Upcoming events, lets plan out the entire year, or at least through the Summer, how many KCFDC events need to be PDGA with the Worlds fast approaching, many events will fill at max levels with the interest.

7:45-Wide Open-Dan, last year for Team Cashen, who will step and take over as the running man for this event, last year for NT probably as well, next year A or B tier to defray from Worlds activity, possibly April or Early May time frame….Where are we at for 2008 KCWO

7:55-Open Discussion

8:00-Adjourn

General Banter / Call for you to HELP-Do you want to make a difference?
« on: October 17, 2007, 10:11:27 AM »
It is that time again for the fall elections.  I would like to know if you are interested in making a difference in the way that disc golf is formulated around Kansas City.

The positions that are up for election are as follows:

President

Vice President of MO

Treasurer

Secretary (Former resigned)

All Course Coordinators:
Swope
Rosedale
Olathe
Down Under
Water Works
WyCo
Cliff Drive
Blue Valley
Shawnee Mission Park

In addition to these offices, we would also like to start to work with people that want to help with the 2009 Pro/Am Worlds and start to set up committees to make this event run smooth.  The Committees will vary, and will want to use your expertise in many areas to help us out.  The location for the meeting is to be determined, but with the by-laws, we need to have 30 days notice.  We are looking at the 13-15th of November to make this happen.  The Club Championships will be November 3-4

If you are interested in this position please contact Tavish Sanders our Sgt/Arms (913) 449-8381 or Dirk Hacker Vp of KS (816) 678-4468.

Here are the by-laws for the election process.

6. Nomination and elections of EC members. An election committee, consisting of two members of the EC who are not up for re-election, shall ensure that the elections are held according to the bylaws, including ensuring that the nominated members are active and are willing to accept their nominations. A call of nominations will be announced to all active (dues-paid) members via postal mail and/or email notification 30 days before the fall general membership meeting. An active member may nominate any other active member, including him or herself. The election committee shall announce the nominees for each office, and then ask for further nominations from the floor. Nominees from the floor must be present and agree to run before their nominations are accepted. All nominees (or their proxies) will have the opportunity to speak to the membership and answer questions. Ballots will be distributed as needed. All ballots will be collected and counted by the Election Committee, who will announce the winner before moving to the next officer to be elected. Each office will be voted on separately in this order: President, VP of MO, Treasurer, and the CCs in alphabetical order or VP of KS, Secretary, Sgt-At-Arms, and the CCs in alphabetical order. All at-large officers will serve two-year terms, with the President, VP of MO, and the Treasurer elected in odd-numbered years, and VP of KS, Secretary, and Sergeant-at-Arms elected in even-numbered years. Course Coordinators will serve one-year terms. Newly elected officers will assume office at the first Executive Committee meeting following their elections.

I would encourage you to use this forum to post why you feel qualified to handle the role you are requesting, and will create another forum to discuss the candidates.

Found and Lost / Keys found at Blue Valley
« on: July 04, 2007, 04:36:21 PM »
I was given a key ring with over 11-12 keys this
afternoon as i believe the grass contractors said were
found at Hole 7 tee pad.

They have the grass looking good for the upcoming
Sunburn Open this Saturday.

There are Ford, GMC, Nissan, Haworth, Schlage, and
Magnum keys and i would like to get them out of my
possession soon.

Any one claiming these call me at 816-231-2009.

Tournaments / Sun Burn Open-07-07-07
« on: June 28, 2007, 10:06:15 AM »
Courses:
Blue Valley-HyBrid (thats right HYBRID) 9 holes from the Jr. Course, 9 holes from the Big course, with alternate placements that are not in the ground.  I will be setting up a few placements from years past to make the layout MUCH EASIER.  The course will still be hard, just a slight variance.

Swope to play 18 holes there as well, not SWOPE GOLD, I want this to be a fun day for all.

Entries:

All Am Divisions $22

Pro Men $52

All Other Pro Divisions $42

Ace Fund $8

Non PDGA Members, please add $5 (1-day PDGA Membership)

PDGA Fee included in entry $2 (PDGA Fee)

Event Times:

Registration Blue Valley from 8:30-9:30 am

Tee Off ~10:00 am

Swope Round 2 will be ~3:00 pm

This is a first come first serve tournament, I will not take pre-registration.  In the event that we end up with over 90 players, we will have an alternate plan, but will limit the field to 110 players MAX.  There must be 3 individuals to open a division.  In that case, we will play some of the Swope Gold holes, and a few extra from the Big course @ Blue Valley

Blue Valley will play a lot easier, and with the Jr. 9 in the mix, ACES will be a strong possibility for all. (No hole is over 300' many are under 250')

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Thanks,

Jack Lowe
