Please read:


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.

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.

Cliff Drive / Adopt a hole-looking for you to help
« on: August 27, 2008, 01:39:07 PM »
I am looking for people to adopt a hole or 2.  You would be helpful in getting things ready to put pads in, and making it more accesible for mowers to keep clean.  We are starting to make great strides there, pads are going in soon (I want them sooner than you trust me).

Looking for people to help with the following holes/fairways.
#1-clean the area from the new teeing area to the old teeing area.  Then starting to work on the alternate pin settings which ties into
#2, clean out area to walk to pad from new pin areas, and down along hillside to make more manageable and possibly mow worthy down to fairway existing.  Would like to clear out all honeysuckle up to road.
#3, clean up the cliff side all the way to the top..
#4 keep it cleaned up, start heading NW from lower fairway to clean up for errant shots, possible LONG placement in woods to North of existing long placement.
#5 grow grass, and clean up top area.  WOuld like to have another pin on the North end where (those of you remember the troubled bridge) we used to tee from.
#6 Maintenance, hillside to the West clean it up and make accessible to mowers.
#7 Clean the hillside from the existing pin, clean out deeper to create a longer shot, keep the cliffs clear, and able to use.
#8 clean up the area off the pad to the "stage"
#9 clean up the area that Brandt did that no one has touched since.  Work on a longer setting in the woods about 50' away from the existing pin, but very technical.

That would get us started.  Looking for about 20  people, figure it takes 2 people per hole and I will help where I can.

Let me know what hole is yours!!



Cliff Drive / League Results 8/25
« on: August 26, 2008, 12:38:51 PM »
Well, we had 9 show up tonight that enjoyed some good golf.  The course was still looking good from the LDO, and the scores didn't.......

Only my card with Rick and Dick did not manage to have someone in the hunt as there was a 3 way tie for 1st....then cam Arturo back with his bag, and cash in hand, as the others tried to take the playoff without their bags.....after a battle in futility they finally succumbed and agreed to split the remainder......

Andrew Jewett-57
Brian Gammon-57
Pete Cashen-59
Dick Parker-59
Rick Rothstein-62
Jack Lowe-62
Mark Morales-64 (ANd not late.....)
Steve Hostetler-73

I'll be out there on Monday, would like to start a little early this next lets shoot for 5:30 if we can with the holiday, if no one plans on attending, start letting me know, I can find other things to do!!
