The course just wears people out, I see A LOT of people quit after #12. Bringing an extra bottle of water and a snack is a good idea.
Most of the work that goes on at BV right now is to flesh out the shorter placements on the course. By the end of the summer every hole will have a long and a short placement, all new maps, new flags, and a few more benches.

BV is not for the average or recreational player.

Most of the holes are the same delivery due to the distance. Drive to fairway,  another same drive, maybe a third same drive too, then lay up and putt out or try for a long distance putt.

Some of the holes are fun there, though there are not many of them, but enough to play the course two or three times a year.

Thank You to all who volunteer at BV cleaning up and improving the course too. It's really appreciated.

For the person that throws only 300' yes.  For those with distance it isn't.  You can't look at this like it's "a course designed for my little arm strength" like the Penguins playoff run.

Look at it for the top people playing that truly want to drive it more.  The biggest argument made that is valid is the RHBH favoritism that it has for said throwers.

For people of moderate discipline, Doug may be on to something, but then again he is old, and this wasn't planned to cater to the guys going older and only throwing their boss katana starlight bubble 300-350..... ::)

TJ was a pretty active guy especially at Swope about 10-15 years ago.  Nice guy, worked hard.  He was always supportive of the sport, not so much the politics of it.

Leagues / Re: 2015 Meandering Monday PDGA League - First Session

I thought there were already 2 leagues at Rosedale on Mondays - ladies and beginners.  As it is the ladies only, I think we can coexist on the same course for one night.

I personally think that is the best idea Rob, go there, start everyone at the top, and see how many you get.  If you get ~20, taking up 4-5 holes shouldn't impede the rest of the course, and save on the land Down Under.

It is better with the weather we have had over the last few weeks to error on the side of protection and caution, good idea for thinking about going this direction instead.

I will try to get out there tonight to mow #4 is my plan, I wanted to try yesterday, but the rain on Saturday threw that right out of the plans.

Sorry, I wasn't out there yesterday as I got back from the doctor, it was raining, and I thought it was going to be raining more than it did.

I will try to get out there on Saturday to get #4 if time allows.

I have had to go to the doctor everyday this week and haven't been able to move so mowing the hills have been right out. 

On a positive note, I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel, and hopefully will be better as time allows me to get there.  I finally feel as though I can throw a disc again, which I haven't felt safe to do since May 3.  Going this long without throwing SUX!

I can get you as many bags as you need.  Weather wasn't right last night, and the doctor told me to not go out and do stuff yesterday....shall see how today goes....  I will leave a bunch of bags somewhere tonight for you to grab, probably in all honesty under a rock in the railroad ties off #1.  But may hide them a little towards #10 basket so they won't get stolen, because you know they wouldn't get used in the park..... :'(

Correct--Should read if OB....sorry that is the notion.  Good catch!

DROP ZONE if you go for the island (and are OB), regardless.  Once you go for the Island, after your second shot, you go to the DZ REGARDLESS of where it went OB.  So if you are throwing from the Peninsula pin, and hit the basket and roll OB, you go to Drop Zone.  Yes that punishes the distance, but that is what we are doing.

At this point I don't believe that this course is to be used for the competition, but......if it is altered, then we could revise the ruling.

However this has long been the model for the placement on the Island.  Anything after the second throw that goes OB does go to DZ regardless of where it goes out.

going to go and work on #4 and possibly #5 tonight after work if there is any interest in helping.  You will have to park down by #5 (off Chestnut) extra hands help out.  #2 looks great thanks to Drew and myself yesterday cranking it out.

There will be a reporter from the Star that is doing an article about Disc Golf in Kansas City, they will be out at Swope at 4:30 taking photos.

If you are interested in possibly having your photo in the paper, hop on out and go over there!

Be sure to be nice and represent well.
