Tournaments / Re: 2015 Lion's Den Open has been canceled
« on: July 27, 2015, 07:45:12 pm »
Dick has said it better than I.....

Friends, family and fellow Leos. We have a very important announcement to share with you.

After 12 years (or 13),the Lion's Den Open has been canceled for 2015. This was a tough decision for both Jack Lowe and myself (Dick Parker). But, we feel it is necessary to recharge the batteries for a year and hopefully come roaring back in 2016.

We know that this news may disappoint many of you who have looked forward to this event every year. We are sorry for those whom we have let down. But we didn't feel good about throwing together a half-ass event just to say we did it 13 or 14 times. We always strive to be the best hosts and give the best party but this year just wasn't shaping up the way we had hoped.

The good news is that Jack and I will now be free on our ACTUAL birthday, Aug 22nd, to do... whatever the hell we want. Because, what really matters is, let's face it, US. After all, we are Leos.

We will still accept gifts, cash, or lottery tickets for our birthday this year. None of that has changed. FYI.

So, at this point you may tell your bosses and loved ones that you are now free on Aug 22nd. If you need a tissue right now, we'll understand. It's a lot to take in.

Thank you everyone for making the last 12 or 13 years some of the greatest memories we could ever hope for. Not many people can say they have 200+ friends, 2 bands, Lunch, Dinner, Beer, Disc Golf, and of course Mini Disc Golf at their freaking birthday party every year!!

We hope to see you next year!

-Dick Parker and Jack Lowe

There was never a parade, there was never a beer tasting festival...

But there wasn't a band that Keizer never heard of playing that same day....

This statement is incorrect.

The president decides an appointment and the Board ratify.

http://kcfdc.org/docs/Bylaws_2010.pdf

Article III section 6.

Though having the board involved hurts nothing, but staying true to the by-laws the President should be offering up the next appointment.  There is no need to put a date on it, but it should be the first order of business to ratify the decision at the next meeting.

It was a Mini-Sota, and I have one as well, but can't find it anywhere online.  Mine still glows as well.

Dick's Pickle Bucket Mini baskets cost him about $25/ea to make if memory serves me correct, and work very well for mini entrapment devices.

This is a very mild chat room if you start to look at other organizations in all honesty...we are pretty civil for the most part, but then comparing us to others isn't always the best way to get people to not have it the way they want it.....

I'm not PO'd, nor am I b*tching....I'm just curious as to why MG1 is relegated to a B-Tier?  The only difference between them and MM1 is well, not much.  8)

Challenge Accepted  Bring it "Shorter now guy" ;D

UTZ be very careful what you say to me and about me.  I'm don't joke around.  I'm not Nalier where I laugh it off...   So if you really got something to say to me I'm real easy to find.

^^^^  this is too serious, close to be banned because of threatening context in my mind....That there is no place for.
There is NO where I threatened anyone.  SO if you want to band me do so.  I really don't care.

I don't plan on Banding you and I don't have that power, but your statement clearly lacking any emoticons comes across as a threatening tone dude, minus all the misuse of words repeatedly as well... I'm not jokester where I tiped it of either

It is up to the TD on how they choose to conduct their players meeting.  I have played in events (Wulbucker-sorry for spelling) in Council Bluffs who starts his players meeting with a prayer.  He isn't alone.

There are MANY, and I mean MANY that start it off with the Star Spangled Banner (Twisted does it I think before EVERY event that Joe runs).

Pledge allegiance I believe was done at GBO or Worlds in the cinema.

Right wrong or indifferent, RESPECT the people that have beliefs different than yours.  If a TD wants to start it off as their beliefs feel entitled to, by all Freaking means, then let them.  They gave HOURS and HOURS and Weeks of time for your sorry excuse to complain about their right to do as they see fit at an event they chose to run for you.

Get off it folks, this is a silly thread.  Tolerate, respect, and if you must ignore, but be polite when the people running events do something you don't like......like not having a players party so everyone can eat.....it may not be the religion objection you have....people asking, or demanding people to move in order to allow fair competition to happen.....

Lets not throw rocks in our cardboard houses we live in.  Let's be better than the rest of society and truly engage and enjoy the people that share this passion of our sport even if it is slightly different in how you want to deliver it.....
