Cliff Drive / Final leaguefor the Northeast Results
« on: September 22, 2014, 09:20:12 AM »
Well after the HUGE turnout for league last Monday on Doubles BagTag night, tonight we will decide to play.......whatever the group that shows up to play decides.  We want to be throwing by 5:35, last time on a very similar configuration we were done by 7:08   Please be signed up by 5:25.

I wanted to do a BYOP doubles alternate shot format, but hey I am not sure how many people will do that.  So we will probably play in the "shorter" configuration of the course to have an 18 hole course set up ala "ace friendly" to see if anyone wants to grab a piece of the $561 ace fund out here.  Probably play in this configurations tonight:
1-to original short basket
2-from the road to #1 (ala LDO)
3-new hole in woods
4-other new hole in the woods
5-hole #2
6-Hole #3
7-Hole #4
8-Hole #5
9-Hole #6
10-Hole #7
11-Hole #8 (Hangar)
12-Hole #9
13-from the road by #18 pin to Blue Practice Basket

14-Hole #11 short Red practice basket
15-Hole #12
16-Hole #16
17-Hole #17
18-Hole #10

Please note that this allows us to flow quite nicely from #9 pin to the road, and gives less total walking by making #10 as the "last hole".  Since it is in the "long position" anyway, it will be a tough shot to begin with.

You can take it to DGW probably glover, or DD and let them know what it is for.

longer doesn't equal a non-beginner course son.

Also putting in courses that only cater to "longer throwers" will inevitably lead to less people playing the sport.  There needs to be a balance and an ability to attract that "new player".  We can't all be seasoned professionals with a solid  3 professional events under our belts after a 5 year touring career with 4 wins now can we? ;D

I had to withdraw for a personal conflict this weekend.  Needless to say I am not happy about it, but that is life, and that is the way it goes.

I encourage everyone to attend though, this is a well ran event on a couple of courses that are not in use at all times, and that makes me sad that I can't get up there to play them. :'(

We had 3 of us out there, Josh, Bill and myself.  So we played an 18 hole layout to get us in and out quickly, ala LDO style in some cases:
1-practice basket
2-new hole in woods
3-new hole in woods
4-hole #2 long
5-hole #3
6-hole #4 long
7-hole #5 short
8-hole #6 right
9-hole #7 short
10-hole # 8 to the hangar
11-hole #9
12-hole #10 LONG
13-LDO shot from road to Blue practice basket
14-#11 short to Red practice basket
15-LDO from road to #11 long (Sully Shot)
16-#12
17-hole #16 long
18-from #17 pad to #18 pin by the road

We got done in about 1:40 playing this format, we had lots of ace runs, and it was fun.  I shot a 57, josh a 58, and Bill a 60.

Next week will be the LAST LEAGUE OF THE YEAR AT THE NORTHEAST COURSES.

I wanted to play BYOP doubles alternate shot on a 20 hole format but who knows, if only 3 of us show up again, we will pound it out on the shorter course and see if we can get a taste of the ace money to end the year.  It is about daylight now in my mind.  We will be teeing off at 5:35, registration needs to be done by 5:30.

I have been involved with the City for about 2 years on a course out here with the KC MO P&R.  The plan is to have an 18 hole disc golf course in conjunction with trails and newer amenities in the park.  The trails are going in first as I don't want to infringe on their progress, and once they are in place it should enable a course to work in conjunction with the other programming in the park to ensure a wonderful addition to the courses here in Kansas City.

As work is being done and developed, I will ask for help, so please do stay tuned so to speak, but this isn't a fast moving process.

Had to move the Mighty MO since the Chiefs schedule wasn't out when Scott scheduled the Mighty MO, it goes up against the Chiefs Bye week which has been the weekend to do the event in the past recent years.  So Scott was kind enough to move the date to align with the club event that is now the largest KCFDC tournament event in town for club members.

If it is raining folks, I don't want to play.  So I will go out and get things started, but the rain this time of year and darkness just really doesn't make for a fun round.

Be mindful of that!

I will work with Dick on a map and layout for a fun and exciting 18 hole layout that will have some length, some fun and just a good time for Blue Valley.  Probably something very similar to what was done during the Monday night league out there, using parts of the Executive course as well as the big course and the "inner course" as well.  http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=10691.0

As this isn't a sanctioned PDGA event, you can drink beer provided you are old enough and hide it well enough to not get a ticket, or are able to pay said fines.

I did alter a few out there that night, so I may have to revisit what all we do, but it will be challenging, and fun, that is the goal of the event!

4 rounds at Cliff Drive!  Awesome idea, I will move the pins different on all holes, we can add 6 new placements, and make it a 24 hole course.  that means capped out at 120 this year!  Alright ALRIGHT!

I bet we need to do Rosedale on Saturday to use the top and bottom courses during the day to accomodate people and have enough spots to have people play.  Then reseed on Saturday night for the MO courses.  Since last year we did Swope and Cliff, I bet this year we do WW and Blue Valley?  C'mon man lets use it.  We can come up with a fun 18 hole layout that will get us all out there and enjoy it, it is time to enjoy it, let's do it!
