Swope / Re: SWOPE Changes DISCussion

And I think that everyone is right in their feelings, so I know I come across harsh and authoritarian, and though kinda my intent, I also am pretty matter of fact in my statements.

I get it, Swope has been in the ground longer than many of our members have been alive.  It is the reason that we (KCFDC) have such a great working relationship with the P&R.  In fact during the meeting with the Director of the Parks, he was commenting on how he went out with Tom Ingle (Original Designer) in like 1979/1980 or so and it was his permission that got the course moving.  So he has an attachment to Swope as well.

To be a little more transparent, this wasn't the Park's call.  It really was the City's call.  The City basically said we are moving forward with this plan...they were blindsided as well initially, but it does make sense.  As many people take animals to the nature Center across the street already, this will ease that confusion.  It is also close to the zoo, thus keeping the "animal family" all aligned and close.

Change is hard, but I am hopeful that I can work this as a catapult to get more than we are losing.  I believe that the timing is right, I feel that they are open to discussion and ultimately it should help us be an even bigger component to park.

I loved it when the signage went up all around pointing to the Disc Golf, and I am hopeful we can add more signs for all of us to enjoy!

I don't mind change, every time a course coordinator turns over they are going to try and change things to be how they want them.

And this is something that the BoD is working on preventing.  The courses were/are designed for a reason, typically the only person that should be making changes are the designer or if P&R wants a change...

BTW though a BIG THANK YOU!!!!!! for helping out at Youngle this week as well bud!  I appreciate it as does everyone!

At the end of the day the KCFDC does not own the park and as such, the city can do what they want with the park.  I'm just glad they're letting us keep the course in the ground and have worked with the club to find a way to incorporate both.  Same applies at WaterWorks.

EXACTLY... a person that has been involved with the club over 15 years and counting your belief that we (KCFDC) can drastically change/alter plans on land we don't own is just wrong.

The best thing about this is the fact that P&R came to us last year when this was presented to them about the notion that we may need to look at alternate options.  At that time I was asked to keep quiet due to the situation NOT being completely understood or approved.  I did as requested because of the level of trust that they had to include us in the initial conversation  I chose to share this information with the BoD privately a meeting or so ago, but again asked their support and understanding in communication per the request of the parks.

There isn't anything wrong with being part of the conversation and there is nothing that the club could do on the land we don't own.  What we got instead is a chance to move forward with alternate ideas that should lead to some wonderful change at Swope and hopefully additional disc golf for everyone.  To me that is way more important than releasing inaccurate information that hadn't been approved by the Parks Board.  Now that it has we can discuss it, but ultimately again, THE LAND IS NOT THE CLUBS.....

Are there any Ams going to this event, that are not staying the night?  If so, is there any interest in carpooling?  I want to play, but I don't want to spend the money on hotel.  Would rather drive back & forth 1 day & ride with someone the next...

Youd save like $20 to drive 8 hours?  Makes more sense to carpool and get a room than to drive back forth a couple of least to me my time is worth more than $5/hr savings...

Socki-Bom said it was sick, that they couldn't see it or hear it.  The camera guy started pumping his fists, so they thought it was a good shot...then as they got closer they realized far away they didn't even hear the smashing of the chains.....

Epic shots that disc golf is becoming "more frequent" on the tube!

coolio Scott!  You may want to edit the first post to reflect this.

Thanks and I am sure that Bill and the staff will help ensure the high level of commitment to the event that you have already started with!

We have our board meeting tonight, so I will work on getting league going but will have to leave afterwards.

With my knee still not operational to the point I want to move baskets, I haven't gotten there to alter them this past weekend.

Derrick indicated he may help move a few but probably will just play it as set for now and see how I do this week.  I am getting better.

Ace Fund $591, its available for you to get.....but you have to be there to play and win it!

Teeing off promptly at 6, please be prepared to be signed up by 5:45.

I really just would like to have a few people there to answer questions more than anything, if you 2 wanna help that would be great, but like I said it won't be any $$$ just bragging rights.

Let me talk with them this week and I will shoot over some more information.

Thanks all!

and here I thought that this was in reference to the crappy melting water they call "the Tank"

Congrats on the Pens and "Sid the Kid" Steeler, it was fun to watch and root for them....

Cliff Drive / 4th of July at Cliff?--Looking for help

There is planned events at Cliff Drive on the 4th, and they would like to include a Disc Golf Event.  I was hoping that someone might be interested in playing/running as I will be in Iowa.

If you have an interest let me know.  I don't think that it will be a "charged" event, but I will have score cards and set the course up quite friendly for people to enjoy.

Let me know if you have an interest in helping.

Found and Lost / Re: Bad day at Cliff Drive
« on: June 08, 2016, 03:03:41 pm »
it was nasty in there off 8, understandable.  It is pretty bad all the way between 7 and 8, but that is the last area that I typically work on.  I have been with people this year and lost 2 discs in there already.

Once my knee gets better I plan on working a hole a night up there, so I may get to it this month.
