Cliff Drive / Wish List before City of Fountains
« on: July 12, 2005, 02:00:19 AM »
I went and played Cliff Drive last night, and wanted to get a wish list of items
that people should work on prior to the event.  If you have any time to help,
some of these are rather simple, some are tough.  I konw that Brandt said that
he was going to head out on Wednesday, as did Jamie B, alas I have a tight
schedule this week, and will not be able to attend these working days so if you
can help, please contact House if you need tools:

1-Tee markers in the ground, remove ivy from trees
2-Remove Ivy from BIG trees (shared on 18 as well) I cut these earlier, but you
can see it back now.
3-would like to have Flag attached for better visibility
5-Would like to secure alternate pin setting between trees, and remove ivy from
trees
6-clean behind the basket area, House and team started a great job, just needs
minor weedeating
7-remove brush from hole, or get a stack going (Jamie B's hole, he may be on
it!)
8-Gulley needs cleared, south side of hill continued weedeating
9-Not much, maybe up around top, or continue towards gulley clearing
10-Fairway area needs weedeating/mower will do it
11-weedeat/mow fairway area, conolidate piles, remove stumps
14-weedeat/mow bigger green around basket
16-Tree by basket, needs ivy cut
Other items-
Need to refresh tee areas on road
Need to paint OB on road (1, 3, 4, 5, 12,15, 16, 17, 18,)

Please pass the word about this event, we want to make it great!!!

Pricing from $22-$62 dependant upon division.  Contact House 816.674.8649 for
more questions.

Tournaments / City of FOuntains Classic NEEDS YOU!
« on: July 08, 2005, 11:53:21 AM »
Like courses in Kansas City, welcome to Blue Valley, think Water Works on Steroids, and Cliff Drive, think cross section of all KC courses.

Blue Valley Disc Golf Center-23rd & Topping KCMO
Cliff Drive Disc Course-Lexington & Prospect Ave KCMO
We want to showcase these courses for the first time, and even in
the rough state that they are in, being new and no concrete pads for us spoiled
types, they will truly shine as another great addition to our stable of courses.  
Please come out to help.

Along those lines, pass the word that the event for next Saturday is ON!  be at
Cliff Drive between 8-9 please for registration:
All fees do NOT include an additional Non-PDGA member fee of $5 if not current
Open-$62
All other Pro divisions-$42
Am Divisions
Adv divisions-$37 (Masters/Grand Masters..etc....)
Adv Women-$32
Intermediate-$27
Novice/Recreational-$22
All current KCFDC members receive a $2 discount.

There will be a players package for all amateur divisions that will be quite
nice, and Budweiser thats right folks Bud will be donating 2 kegs for the party
afterward.  House and Steve Hoog will be cooking at Blue Valley between rounds
for a free lunch as well, and there should be added cash of at least $200 for
the Open division, and possibly $100 for each pro division beyond that.

We have also made strides for Shawnee Mission Park, as we will be having an
event out there, similar to league on August 13.  We need help on the workday
the weekend prior of August 6, and then baskets for the following weekend.  
Contact Dirk Hacker at 816.678.4468 for more information, but entry will be no
more than $10, play one round, have a lunch, then move a few baskets to play
another layout and play round 2.  Ed Gonzales and Dirk Hacker have spent quite a
bit of time working on this project, and the funds are in, so lets get a design
that works for all of us in a Johnson COunty park that sees a ton of people.

Lance Stanton Doubles are right around the corner as well, remember to find your
doubles partner, as this event for Cystic Fibrosis comes on the Sunday of Labor
Day weekend, at Cliff Drive.

Well, I am heading out to Cliff Drive to do some work, if you are reading this
you probably can't help today, but please come out tomrrow to help at one of the
courses.  I am going to try and play a round at Blue Valley today ~3:30, should
be done by dark then!  Come on out and lets play the newest course, as the
baskets are in, tee markers are up, and Kreeger and Penney have husteld it in
for a great new BIG place to play~

Water Works / Work day April 30
« on: March 28, 2005, 05:03:13 PM »
WATERWORKS PARK, BRIARCLIFF GREENWAY
AND BRIARCLIFF PARKWAY
SPRING PROJECT

Saturday, April 30, 2005
9 a.m. – 1 p.m. – RAIN OR SHINE !

Project Participants:
Northland Community Alliance, KCMO Parks Department, KCMO Police Department – North Patrol Division, KC Flying Disc Frisbee Golf Club, Boy Scouts – Troop 9 and Cub Scouts-Pack 9, Claymont Homes Association, and other neighborhood groups.

We will meet at 9am at Waterworks Park in the upper parking lot (closest to North Oak and the playground equipment) to divide into work teams.  Volunteers should provide their own gloves and any other equipment such as rakes, clippers, shovels that they will need to help with the clean up.  Neighborhood groups may also choose to use this day as a clean up day for their own neighborhood.


Project Work Areas Include:

Water Works Park – Pick up trash, tree limbs and branches and stack into piles near edge of road; rake leaves and trash along stone walls and remove; wipe down play equipment, sweep play ground surface and remove branches and trash; spread mulch on frisbee golf trails.  Pick up trash along either side of entrance on N. Oak.
 
Briarcliff School, Trail and Greenway – pick up trash put into trash bags and pile limbs in piles for removal.

Briarcliff Parkway – pick up trash, stack any brush in piles for pick up, rake if necessary.






NCA Staff - coordinate project, request food from N. Oak merchants, design flyers – recruit volunteers, send press releases to press, invite neighborhoods to participate in clean up, take flyers to Briarcliff School to distribute through students to parents
Invite Briarwood West Homes Association volunteers to beautify south end of Briarcliff Parkway??
Invite other neighborhood groups to get involved in project or have clean up in their own neighborhood the same day.
Send info to NCA board members and NCA neighborhoods about project
Get donation of: Water, ice, cups, napkins, paper towels, drinks, 1st aid kit, get donations of food,

KCMO Police Department-North Patrol -  organize and monitor community service workers at work site

KCMO Park Dept. staff – provide trash bags, tools and pick up trash bags and branches, provide portable toilet in park

KC Flying Disc Frisbee Golf Club -  provide volunteers to work on day of clean up

Boy Scout Troop 9: The boy scouts are tasked with picking up trash along North Oak.  This runs from the north boundary of the park (by the bus shelter at Hill Street), to the south boundary (where the guardrail starts--this is also directly across the street from the south driveway at Cerner--previously known as the Farmland building).  Parks Department would also like any downed limbs placed on the shoulder of N. Oak.  It would probably be a good idea to designate an adult leader to be in charge overall and the Troops boy leadership to supervise.
 
Cub Scout Pack 9:  The cub scouts are tasked with picking up trash and tree limbs from around Briarcliff School and the Briarcliff Nature Trail.  Downed limbs should be brought to the top of the hill, or to the east entrance of the trail by the dead end street.  The Pack should also designate a leader.  

Claymont Homes Association Volunteers – participate in their own clean sweep of their neighborhood and beautify northern end of Briarcliff Parkway

Cliff Drive / Workday Planned Saturday, prep work Friday
« on: March 22, 2005, 12:23:44 PM »
There will be a workday at Cliff Drive this saturday morning.  I will be sure to have the gates open to drive in.  Plans include to complete the following:
Finish trail down from 7 to 8 pad.
Remove Temporary baskets 7-11 and place permanent baskets there.
Continue to clear out brush and dead trees along #13
Clear out #14 on the left of honeysuckle
Place alternate pins at #2, #5, possibly #16
Clear out brush and continue alternate trail on #7 to #8 (lower priority but needed)
Determine where to put water fountain at, thinking by #6, with a pad for port-o-potties there as well
Re-spray paint tee Markers
look for 13-18 Big Boulders to use as tee markers, would like to incorporate big rocks as tee indicators, what do you think?
Always pick up trash

I plan on heading out there on Friday, as I am off due to the Holiday.  I will be out there from 9-1 working, then probably play a round.  Don't answer your phone when I call unless you plan on helping.  I am trying to compete with foot traffic at Cliff Drive, as Pete thinks we get none out there!

Come on out and help with the workday on Sat, we will have fun and good times, and Karma will flow through you!

Thanks,

Jack
