General Banter / 2016 KCFDC Elections and Dinner-Saturday at Old Pike
« on: November 07, 2016, 12:36:41 PM »

Club Elections and Annual Meeting Scheduled for November 12!

On November 12, 2016, beginning at 5 pm, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club will hold its annual meeting and Club elections at the Old Pike Country Club, located at 5101 NW Old Pike Rd, Kansas City, MO 64118. This event is free to Club members who RSVP (fill out the form below) and will include a disc Swap Meet/Fly Mart, dinner, distribution of the 2017 KCFDC Club tags (based initially on the results of the Club Championships for those able to compete and then on a first-come, first-served basis for all others), and, of course, the election of new members to the Board of Director’s for the KCFDC. The Swap Meet begins at 5 pm and the dinner and elections will be from 6-8 pm. The Club will be responsible for cleaning up the venue and any attendees willing to remain and help clean will be much appreciated. In addition, the Board will be hosting a flex start event from noon-3pm at Old Pike that day, with all cards teeing off by 3 pm (the Board will provide score cards to those who wish). In addition, Club merchandise will be available for purchase at this event. Visit for more information leading up to the event.

The following Board of Director’s members will be completing their two year terms at the end of 2016: Kelly Babbit (current Board president), Pete Cashen (current Kansas Vice President), Nate Zier (current Missouri Vice President), Crispian Paul (current Secretary to the Board) and Mark Hogins (at-large member). Each year, the members of the Board meet after elections and vote amongst themselves which member will fulfill each position, meaning that the members who remain may not remain in their current roles. With only nine spots on the Board of Director’s, 2017 will be bringing big changes to the Board with five members leaving. If you are interested in joining the Board, are able to attend monthly Board meetings, and are willing to volunteer your time and energy outside of Board meetings, please attend this meeting if at all possible and if not, express your interest in consideration via the current Board of Director’s, whose contact information is available on the website.

yeah, I was really impressed on how short the grass actually was.  About the shortest I've ever seen it.

End of season mows, they go down as low as they can.  It won't be mowed again until next year.

Good luck on the event, truly sorry I can't make it this year.

I expect nothing but the best from Mike, and completely deserve just about anything for posting this!


General Banter / Cooper Arnold--Apology and thanks

I wanted to post this because I believe that it is over do.  Cooper has been playing very solid and though this isn't the reason for the post, it reminded me that I want to take time to apologize to him on the forum as well as thank him and congratulate him.

There are a few people that get my blood boiling at times, and Cooper had to take the brunt on what I felt at the time was a warranted conversation (man emotions huh?).  He moved away, he returned, and I wanted to say that I for one noticed a change that I welcomed.  It may be the lack of internet fodder as the culprit, but beyond that Cooper has stepped up and helped out in many areas around town, and I notice it.  I appreciate it, and I for one wanted to say thanks, and apologize for my tone in the past on the internet.

I have re-read some of the heated flames we spewed at each other, and it clearly wasn't my best side by any stretch, and I am completely as certain I could have gone a different way to get my message across, so I am ashamed of some of my own comments.

That being said, I wanted to say great play this past weekend as well as throughout the year, and my sincere thank you for your seemingly unselfish help that you have done as I have seen this past year.  I appreciate it, I love seeing it, and by all accounts I should make it known in the public circles that I for one thank you for your help as a perceived vision of mine (I am not delusional I know that my glasses are rose....) may not have reflected that.

I appreciate that you are playing very well also, seeing the scores, and the folks you beat this weekend, it is cool to see!

Congrats, and thank you sir!

I am moving to INT for Sat b/c I want to watch football on Sunday.....

Is there an XL document somewhere showing all past champions?  Curious!

finally CD

Is about the gist of it.....(going off Memory)

I believe that basket #17 is used 2x as #10 and #17 if that helps.....

I get it as well.  I just didn't want people to starting thinking that they had to come prepared with their own card!

there will probably be "singles" so really this isn't a completely "create your own card" type of thing, we will try to accommodate, but it may not always work out, and based on #'s we may have 5 somes or GASP 6-somes (though we hate that, please register online for your course at )

Help us all by signing up.  It makes the day better for those that make it happen for you!

Cliff is.... I moved #11 to short yesterday (Scott may not be aware) but the thought is that by having it in the short it will significantly speed up play and prevent many errant shots into the reservoir there.  This also balances out #13 being moved to the long position for some distance as well.

WW is set up for the Club Championships, I am not certain if that is the same format or not for Mighty Mo.

Thanks Doc for the reminder about crazy fast left turns.....

I supported the Lincoln Prep school a few years ago with the robotics team.  Bought them all shirts to match for the event.  It is a pretty cool thing to say the least.
