Be afraid, and get ready to be thrown into the Lion Pit.

Would you be interested in Pre-ordering again this year?

The goal is simple-
Have fun, spend time with great people, and enjoy a beautiful park.

18 holes of regular disc golf can be played
all we need is you to be there and help to make it great!

Looking forward to it!

General Banter / PDGA Dues In your InBox
« on: December 06, 2012, 02:16:30 PM »

I just got the reminder today in my INBox, and wanted to remind everyone that is thinking about joining or renewing to do so through the club.

Rick has offered to tackle this responsibility!  Thanks Rick!!

The PDGA will be releasing its annual renewal letter soon. You don't have to wait to see it to pay your 2013 dues through the Affiliated Club Program, or in this case, the KCFDC. If you are planning to join or re-join the PDGA for 2013, please pay through the KCFDC, which keeps $5 for each member signed up.

Here's a link to the form that you must fill:

You can pay your dues at Disc Golf World, 509 E 18th St, KCMO 64108. Am dues are $50 and pros pay $75. Checks should be written to the KCFDC. If using a bankcard, a $2 or $3 surcharge will apply. You can avoid the surcharge by paying with check or cash. Call me with any questions.

I just dropped off the Tic-Tac-THROW baskets to Hal Baby to take on Saturday night for the disc golf seasonal get together, starting after Down Under League at 4, who is going, and what can we gamble on while we are there?  Sounds like we can continue with the K-Mont B-Day and Grandpa Swede (turned 101 today, good for him!) celebration day.....What say you, and how you will handle the WarmUP for a variety of Saturday evening activities?

Cliff Drive / PDGA League in 2013 at Cliff
« on: November 13, 2012, 01:56:54 PM »

The first 10 weeks of league next year at Cliff Drive will be PDGA leagues.

I will initially pay the $25 fee, and then based on this, league will raise to $6 for club members $7 for non-club members. 
That means that league payout will be based as follows:
-$1 discount for Club Members (Why you typically pay $5 for leagues now as a member)

PDGA League in 2013
$1-PDGA/Cliff Drive Tree Fund (the PDGA gives back 1/2 of the $1 to the local club, this will remain in Cliff Drive Tree Fund)
-$1 discount for club members (Thus $6 for Current members or $7 for non-current Members deduct $1 if you don't want in the ace fund)

You will need to be in attendance for at least 6 of the 10 weeks to qualify for the "series award" (TBD, but I will have something)  I would also encourage more participation for Am's in this series as well this upcoming year.

TO surmise some of the benefits (From Kevin McCoy formerly of Tulsa notoriety) :

    It gives players more rated rounds that equates to more accurate player ratings.
    It will allow offering handicap events which are popular with recreational players.
    It helps to determine which division is best suited for players.

I was involved in a very successful club in Tulsa and I really have a strong desire of wanting to help strengthen clubs and leagues. Giving something back to the club is essential to making the PDGA work for them.   Here are some of the benefits the clubs will get out of the running leagues.

    Special Promotional PDGA Membership Discounts
    Ĺ of the $1 league fee stays with the league for course improvements, baskets, charities, etc. (see my comment above)
    Exposure and advertising for your league through

Here is how PDGA Sanctioned Leagues are going to work initially.  The first phase for 2012 will roll out in March, once daylight savings kicks in. We are offering sessions of 6 to 10 weeks for your league.  We are going to start out keeping it simple with basic singles play, but in later phases we will be able to offer other formats.

    Anyone interested in becoming a league director can contact the PDGA and get a League Director package.
    It will be a $25 PDGA sanctioning fee
    The PDGA will provide the league director a League Director Spreadsheet.
    The spreadsheet will be able to track the results of your league auto-magically.
    Each league then is able to view results on the league page on

The spreadsheet the League Director will receive will be a simplified TD report in Excel spreadsheet format.  Itís a very simple page that just tracks names and scores, for uploading to the PDGA website.  And, for the more dedicated TD's that want to input more data it can be used  to track more detailed stats like your Birdies, Bogies,  wins, losses, etc.

Cliff Drive / WorkDays
« on: November 05, 2012, 10:43:10 AM »
I am going to start to do some work on the "new holes"  Will probably start with the first 2 holes until I get machinery on the others.

This initially will be cutting out Honey Suckle and removing trash between the practice basket, and hole #12 tee pad, there will be 2 holes put in there is the plan.  Can you your help, will probably be out there some on Thursday/Friday and Saturday.

Will be using Tone Poles probably initially for the placement piece for these holes.

Tournaments / Ice Bowl 2013
« on: November 02, 2012, 10:19:08 AM »

I will start the donations.  I am going to buy 1 PDGA membership for someone at the Ice Bowl.  I am uncertain how I will make this determination (no I won't buy it for myself, but I like your thinking).

I am undecided if I am going to buy it for a NON-PDGA person (meaning they have never been a member), or a renewing member.  My thought was initially that I would buy a membership for the person that brought the most people to the Ice Bowl, regardless, and I may do that.  I may also look at a method to the person that most epitomizes the Ice Bowl, and works the hardest towards it's success (Rick and BoD, and usual suspects don't count, I hope and am inspired by all of you already, and how could I make that determination).

Suffice it to say, I will look a method prior to the event, but wanted to get people thinking about the Ice Bowl as we are about 12 weeks away from having that wonderful weekend upon us again.

Hopefully a new Chili Contest winner (though I hope he returns to feed us) and other items, but I would encourage us all to be thinking about the Ice Bowl and what we can do to make it better this year again!

I would like to have a local artist come up with a unique logo for the event, submit your logo to me via a PM.  I will pay for the one chosen.....

More information to come, but initially I am going to be the TD for NT side and Rick may do the Am Side of the event.  The NT side will include all PRO divisions this year (not have a separate "A" Tier for Masters et al) and will probably include only 4 rounds of golf this year for them.  Looking at "Big" Blue Valley Day 1, WW & Cliff Day 2, and Swope Gold Day 3 initially for these divisions.  More information to follow but I thought with the elections and the meeting tomorrow night, if you have any ideas questions, or ways to make the event better than this past year, please be prepared to bring them forward.

It takes our entire community to make this event work, and we need your help.  Just because my name is listed as the TD, it doesn't mean that I can do it all.  I want/need your input, and would love to have it.

Please let me know how you can help make this the best NT in 2013.



I was told that they have plenty of spots left, and they need disc golfers to join.  There are plenty of sponsors, so this may be a chance to play at Thornfield again, just need to get some players.
Join us at Thornfield Disc Golf Course for a day of golf, food and fun as we help the homeless and less fortunate of Kansas City. For more information please email

After trying to call to get more information, I only got voicemails.....I will see if I can get more information to follow.

Cliff Drive / Would you play a PDGA League at Cliff in 2013?
« on: September 27, 2012, 04:17:09 PM »
I am thinking of making the Monday Cliff League a PDGA league, where you get points, etc for playing.  I would charge the extra $1 to be included, and if you don't want to be included it wouldn't be a requirement, unless you made the 3rd person that has a rating to keep the ratings alive.  This would be a way to track the ratings for the course, and a chance for you to get points to help with invitations to Worlds.  I think that it may help in some areas, but am curious what those in cyberland think before I request this denomination of the BoD.

The PDGA leagues allow for slightly lax from their rules, and enforcement accordingly, so though we would want to be a little more stringent on the rules, I wouldn't say that this is a tournament setting, but we would ask that while playing under the PDGA rules, you follow the appropriate guidelines. 

If overwhelming support may drive more traffic to the course on Monday's, I am looking into it.  If this is a case where anarchists rue the day then I will take that into consideration as well. 

I am uncertain if we can have part of the field pay for the PDGA part, and part not, because I think that we need to keep scores for all, but I will be looking into it, if so, it may be worth the extra $1 to get points all the time out here.

Please let me know what you think.



Cliff Drive / Last league of the NE for the 2012 season-Tee by 5:15
« on: September 24, 2012, 02:11:58 PM »
I will work on getting there by 5:00, but be ready to go promptly at 5:15.  I can't play still, but it looks to be a lovely night to enjoy the park.

If there isn't 4 of us to run league, thanks to everyone that played this year, and soon we will be posting in here about the workdays to upgrade the course.
