Cliff Drive / League 6/17/13
« on: June 18, 2013, 11:40:14 AM »
Cliff Drive-Home of the Mighty Mo this upcoming weekend had a league night with a host of talent from all over the world.  On this wonderful night at the course, with it looking in spectacular during this league night, a wonderful group of individuals gathered for a night of golf.  With only 1 person at the basket at 5:50pm......league looked to be lost, but alas arriving promptly to ensure that no one was left behind on the night, Jack arrives in quick fashion to find Derek putting on 18.  Off he goes to grab another player from Australia no less to join to ensure league success happens.  Upon getting Rhys for league, and pulling up, getting out of the car, but what approached, but a tiny white car with plates of wheat, no not under duress, but rather Peter Buress had come to join in this game as well.

Off they went throwing into the trees, and clamoring so but after nine it oh so close, then a quick strike of 2 ob's on 12 and 13, Peter looked strong to make the lead.  Then as though the gods stroke down, the dumbest hole in the universe (hole#16 for those of you not in the know) found a way to eat that disc and allow a 5 to subside, not to be left in the cold, hole #17 showed it could play to as a 6 was to be found on little peter's shoe.

All along the top of the hill, Peter threw and threw again, but still couldn't get to the tree, he took a 3 and as it was, the night was push, and the league was squashed.

Rhys-62

Baskets moved to Mighty Mo position.

Final tabs will be next week on the standings for the initial league of the PDGA league.

We had 23 people start, and 20 finish as the MONSTER known as Big Blue swallowed a few souls out there.  Last look at 9:40 had Ron sending out a rescue party for this buddy Markus who refused to give in to the course when it attempted to eat one of his plastic pieces.

Weather was great, mowers were active, sun was shining, overall a pretty good night for golf.  I cam out in time to get a little help with Swope Gold signage, and place it and then make it back in time to finish up on the league night, and things appeared to be as good as they can be heading into one of the busiest weeks of the year for the course.  If you want to enjoy the park in all its glory, this is the week to do so.  It is looking just fabulous darling, absolutely fabulous!

Enough of the rambles, you are here to read the scores right?  Well the Blackhawks after losing game 3 in LA took the final two games to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in the last 4 seasons.  Boston whom many predicted would be flat against the high powered Oofense of the Pens took it to them in great fashion and the table is set where an Indian will be chasing a bear on Ice in June for a chance to drink from a silver chalice.  In other news the corruption known as collusion Heat are tied to the team defined by consistency.  THis person is hoping for another repeat of a Texas team winning in a sport that this one is not so fond of....

Reminder, we will be playing the Blue Valley Long on Monday the 10th.

If you haven't already committed to helping a local course this weekend, we will be doing a little work at Blue Valley on Saturday morning.  Mowers and weed whackers would be the optimal usage, I have a saw, so we should be ok.  If you have a pole saw though, wouldn't hurt.

Thanks,

Jack

I am thinking of running an additional session for another 10 weeks of the PDGA league out here in the NE on Monday nights.  This would go through to the end of August I think, and then in September we would just run it as a standard league.  I am curious to know what say you.

General Banter / So who you got now?

Thanks much to the EPIC Meltdown of the rubber meeting the ice last night...Blackhawks outscored the Red Wings 10-5 after managing just two goals in Games 2-4 -- they became the 25th team to win a series after trailing 3-1. It was the first time in franchise history Chicago has made such a comeback.

How fitting it kicks Detroit out of the West and sends home to worry about the disc golf housing project downtown.

You know who I am riding the rest of the way, so who you got?

Cliff Drive / Work to be done at cliff-if you have the time....
« on: May 28, 2013, 03:09:22 PM »
Folks,

A lot of love has been going on out at Cliff Drive, and though I know in the future we may be losing holes 7-8-9 as they stand today, we haven't lost them yet, and I have been told that they want to really work with us to try to remain to have them in play. 

What that may mean though is that the fairway on #8 will get TIGHTER, and Tree lined, can you say tough SOB!  but rest assured even with the possibility of having them not vanish, I plan to expand the course.  Ideally if this happens making it a 24 hole course.  I think that is a perfect number for disc golf personally.  Time will tell. 

In the mean time, Beckett has been carving out the new holes with intensity not matched in years out there.  Johnny Harrison attacked holes #5 & #6 to clean them up.

I finished cleaning up #4, and then got #8 long green taken care of last night.

What remains to be done in the annual "summer clean/Spring Clean of Cliff" is the hillside on #6 by the downed tree.  The green on #7 middle, and then the trail from #7 up to the stage to the cliff.  I will try to get out there and work some on it this week, probably Friday so that it looks a little better for the East Championships, but if you have time and a mower or weed whacker, anything anyone does will be appreciated.

Thanks for the love on the course this month out there, it is looking good!

General Banter / Sponsors?
« on: May 22, 2013, 10:36:03 AM »
Anyone looking to sponsor the Wide Open in some way or shape?  I have a couple of folks that have given me information about sponsors for the BBQ party, what say you?  You have someone lined up that would like to get their name out there to about 300 people regionally based that like to go and spread the word about things that help make disc golf events better?

68
General Banter / Volunteers -registration lets get it on!
« on: May 22, 2013, 09:31:16 AM »
We need help, volunteers, more players, you know the drill!  We are less than a month away from the Wide Open, and you can help make it better.  Sign up to help or play, or work on the course beforehand.

Help be a part of the longest running and biggest disc golf tournament of the year in KC!

Looking forward to good times!

I will be in Iowa, and the tradition of not having league on holidays is secure with me running it.  So there is not a league in the Northeast on Monday the 27th.  I will probably be out there working on the course though if you want to come out and help, and will be probably easily manipulated into making you a fine feast following the work.

What I would like to accomplish is relatively simple:
Mowing-
Finish 4 fairway (15 min)
Mow 5 Fairway and Green (30-40 Min)
Mow 6 fairway (30 minutes)
Mow path between 7 & 8 by rocks (40 min)
mow/weed whack around 8 pad (15 minutes)
clear downed tree limb and area around stage mow, etc... (hour)

Looking about 3-4 hours of work, and if you can help, all you need would be a lawnmower, and some time.  If enough of us come out, we could get it done in about an hour, and then maybe play disc golf...if enough, if not, then I will work on it and do what I can!  :-)

Playing the course in round one configuration tonight (of the EAST v. west Team Challenge).  Which means that we are playing #8 to the hangar, and nickels on everything else.

We got some love done on the course, and some still needs to be done, but it should be a great night out there to play for certain.

Par tonight will be set at 56.  We want to be teeing off no later than 6pm on the holes, so please be signed up by 5:50.  Ace Fund is $331 before tonight's contribution.  Aces are available at the following locations:
2
3
4
5
7
8
9
10 (it's going to be an epic shot, but it is there-depending on wind)
12
13
15

SO over half the course is set up for you to take home some money, come and get you some!

I will attempt to be out there as quickly as I can, but we should be in good shape to finish without too much of a hiccup.  Ace Fund is currently at $313 with a bunch of possibilities out there.  We will be playing to the Nickels on all baskets tonight as well, so Ace possibles on :
2
3
4

SO come on out and get rated!

General Banter / Tick, Tick, Tsk....
« on: May 08, 2013, 09:17:44 AM »
FWIW....

"I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best
way to remove a tick. This is great because it works in
those places where it's sometimes difficult to get to with
tweezers: between toes, in the middle of a head full of
dark hair, etc."

"Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick
with the soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few
seconds (15-20); the tick will come out on its own and be
stuck to the cotton ball when you lift it away.

This technique has worked every time I've used it
(and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic
for the patient and easier for me.."

Also, if you just pull a tick off, their heads sometimes break off
and are left under the skin so this is much safer. Be aware

also that a tick with a white speck on its back is a Deer
Tick, these can cause Tick Fever so check yourself and
your family good if you see any of these!

"Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see that this
would be damaging in any way.

Cliff Drive / 5/6/13-NE League Night @ Blue Valley
« on: May 07, 2013, 08:33:50 AM »
Well, what a beautiful day to be out throwing plastic in the park last night it was.  We had 13 people come out to play, but only had 12 get there in time to start it off and finish.  We got all groups back without needing lights, and though the course wasn't set in Uber Long Wide Open settings, we did manage to play from the long pads last night.

Joe Hesting came in and said if my 56 isn't a 1020, this is silly.  Well, it was sorta silly, as it rated out a 1019 on the night as we played the course in a configuration that we are calling par 63 for evening.  This was a 56 with a disc that got stolen on #14 as they looked for Jake Bowen's disc in the Blue River where the geese were trying to decipher if it was a new type of egg for them to use.  I kid, I kid.

Scores-

Open
Joe Hesting-56-=$12
Jose Ossa-59=$9
Matt Crowe-62
Jack Lowe-62
Jake Bowen-64
Jamie Danger-66
Scott Melrose-67

Advanced
Ryan Keck-63=$9 KcKash
Greg Utz-68=$6 KcKash
Tony Burnett-77=$3 KcKash
Jason Gillow-81
Rob Martin-84

I think that there were 3 people that didn't get in the ace fund, so next week back to Cliff Drive and the Ace Fund will jump up to $313 for next week.

Reminder that workday in the Northeast area community is slated for Saturday May 18.  I can use your help to work on the new areas we are working to create within Cliff, as well as some maintenance on the existing areas.  If only a few hours or even one you can do, it will help.  Thanks much-Jack

Reminder, that league is at BLUE VALLEY tonight!!
Well, I am uncertain if I can get there by 5:30 to play on the Big course, and get everyone going.  I should be there close to it though, and if we can get 3-somes going by 5:30, we should have enough time to play the big course.  I can play it generally in 2 1/2 hours if I don't doddle.  So if someone wants to step up and take names and $$$ until I get there, I think that the big course is on tonight boys.  If no one responds, then it will be "inner course" for all.
