Realizing that these are for Scott, not Rob....

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

which placement on #5 are we going to?

What will be the OB rules on #17, since you have to Cross the street/parking lot with the exception of going WAYYYYY north.

Ok , I couldn't figure out how you were to make the island practice basket a hole in an actual event, glad to hear that isn't part of the equation.  Safety is the biggest thing in regards to this as my biggest concerns would be with the temp holes A/B, and then the safety of throwing over a road on #17 intentionally.


OK, more details.

Hole A is to the left of Standard 1.  It goes down hill.

Hole B comes back up the hill to the practice basket near the playground.

Assuming that we are playing the "ridge" of the hill then and then crossing the street to play back up to the practice basket?  If so, has a provision been made to ensure safety of the playground patrons and prevent any possible injuries?  I mean I understand it....I think....or are we throwing back up the ridge and crossing the road (more safety playing across a street that will be heavily parked car loaded comes to mind....

Holes 1-3 are normal
Hole 4 plays to 5's basket.
(skip teepad 5)
Hole 6-16 normal
Hole 17 to 12's peninsula's basket
Hole 18

There will be mandos set up to protect players, such as on hole 3 that will prevent you from playing from hole 2's fairway if you venture too far right.  Other mando's I'm sure.

14 people out last night for a great round of golf in the weather.  If you were not out playing I hope that you had a better plan on what needed to be done in your life.  It was too nice to be sitting in the house watching TV, that is for sure.  Days this nice are going to start to make people wonder why they don't live in the midwest.  If only it was like that all the time.

The Migration of the Masters players at the behest of "Das" Loomis made for a smaller Masters field, and a larger Open Field.  Thanks in large part to this Joe Hesting took the top honors with a 54 last night, as we played to the "practice baskets" on 1, 8, and 11, but still had #13 and #17 long for a par 56.  With 56 being a magical number there was a 3 way tie in the Open division for 2nd place, and the playoff ensued, it took 3 holes and finally a concession on the last one to call it a CTP finish, but Loomis took the money home for second at $9.  56 was good enough to win in the Masters Division as your prose artist here had moments of steady golf and good playing (a 3 on #13...apparently not as good as Peter Bures who put his drive about 100' from the pin....YEOWWWEEEE!!!!) kept away the Sneaky snake and won $9 in masters.  The Advanced field was waiting patiently for the last card to come up, and as Bill Shinoski walked in and finished his round, his 61 (8 strokes better than last week for him) was better than Ryan Westa's 6 stroke imporovement, but both took home the KCKash, Bill got $8, and Ryan got $4, it should be noted that Jason Allen had the biggest improvement in strokes, improving 9 from the prior week.

Open
Joe Hesting-54=$12
Das Loomis-56=$9
Beckett Carduff-56=$0
Kelly Babbit-56=$0
Derek Holt-59
Dick Parker-60
Peter Bures-61

Masters
Jack Lowe-56=$9
Sneaky Snake (Sully-Left hand wannabe throwing Right Handed in my Dreams Dan Z)-58
Danny Rodriguez (I can throw with either hand.....why isn't this going in?)-61

Advanced
Bill Shinoski-61=$8 KcKash
Ryan Westa-62=$4 KcKash
Graham Long-65
Jason Allen-70

No one got an Ace, so it appears as though that the Ace Fund is now listed at $478

Next week will be another fantastic week at Cliff Drive to come and throw plastic at metal chains.  I do hope that you choose to come visit.  We do realize that you have a choice on where to play Disc Golf, and we appreciate you choosing Cliff Drive.  If you haven't, get over yourself, and get out there!!!!!

:-D

Danny Rodriguez also made current his club dues.

We had 8 people come out that helped this past weekend to start to continue to move forward with Cliff Drive new holes.
Jack Lowe
Brett Shoffner (ERTA)
Trevor Beck (Non club member)
Mark Moseley (Non club member)
Beckett Carduff
Mike Petrin
Mike Keizer
Mike Penney

About half were not club members, but enjoy helping to make the park better.

This is the start of new items, and should be able to be utilized for the Lions Den Open (August 16th) is the plan.

We hope to be out at Cliff Drive every weekend (specifically on Saturdays) between now and the LDO.  Next 2 weekends we will probably be looking at a full 3 days of work, possibly Friday Night, Saturday and Sunday.

If you can only help for a few hours, or even an hour it is all going to be helpful towards the improvement on the park.

We totaled about 50 hours on Saturday and hope to continue the trend.  Contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Jack

Also....FWIW, everyone that showed up to help at Cliff Drive was a direct result of my text messages to them on Friday.  Not one person came because of the forum.......maybe some came because of the FB postings as well, but over saturation of the event is needed to attract folks.

I get it and understand way to much where you are coming from.

HA.

We have to play to get them, so who is going to come on out and see what we have happening?

As a reminder we have the following format tonight at league:

7-14-14-Shortening some holes, playing to practice baskets on #1, #8, #11


You know you want to play this park, so stop on by and see what we have in store for you tonight!

I should be there about 5:30-5:40 to start taking registrations.  EXACT money ($6 for Club members, $7 for non Club) is always appreciated.

Doug,

I am on full force at Cliff Right now, I will try to help after next month or so.  Is there anything that I can try to do in the evening to help out?

I am trying to move earth and holes and extreme trash removal at Cliff for the next holes, so I may be limited, but want to help where I can.

Don't get too frustrated, we had 8 of us at Cliff so that may have stolen from the work efforts you are doing as well.

Cliff Drive / Work Day Saturday July 19
« on: July 11, 2014, 11:26:13 AM »
I will be out by the practice basket working tomorrow from 9am until I stop.

If interested in coming out, please do.  I will probably get some food in the middle of the day for those that are there.

I am working on the continuation of the new holes to the north of the practice basket, that will be 2 new holes.

Probably going to mow #5 fairway as well as try to get the tree removed from the downed stump on #6.

I know about the trees on #3, and #7, but will be working with P&R on those.

Thanks,

Jack

You will want to figure out where to play besides WW and Rosie on these days.  Cliff Drive will be available if you are wanting to stay in the area, and should be in pretty good shape by then as well.  The pools will be playing these courses all day on the 2nd and the 3rd.

Sorry about your luck, hope this helps.  Always good to see family though!

Results on a hot and slightly circular wind.  Beckett took home the low score with a par 56 last night as we played #13 and #17 in the longer positions.  He had 3-5's as well on the night.  That made Beckett the winner in the Masters as well.

Jose held off Dick by one stroke in the open field to take home the cash there, and Ryan Westa held off Bill Shinoski by a stroke to take home the KC Kash (I owe him $9).  the results from the event will be based on the division that people normally play in the PDGA on the site, but here is how it really ranked last night:

Open
Jose Ossa-57=$9
Dick Parker-58
Travis Corporan-71

Masters
Beckett Carduff-56=$9
Kelly Babbit-59
Jack Lowe-59

Advanced
RAW-68=$9 KCKash
Bill Shinoski-69
Jason Allen-79

The ace fund is still being calculated from the weeks that I wasn't running it.  At this point I am confident to state that it is in excess of $463 (last entry is $455, and then $9 from last night =$464).

I moved a few pins last night as well, so we will try again next Monday, the forecast looks to be a little cooler, and hopefully we can have some more come out and enjoy the great Cliff Drive!

Thanks all!!

Ram-n-salmon was a B-day event Doug, like the Lions Den Open.  It happens in march or it doesn't.  It takes a lot of work, effort and energy to pull off events that are fun like that.  It is tough to maintain it.

I am sure that the bird's will come up with new and creative plans, though it may not be as advertised as it has been in the past.

Shamless plug, Lion's Den Open will be at Cliff Drive on August 16th this year.  It is in August because it celebrates the Leo's in the club (there are MANY of us!) and we hope to have another fantastic year.  Planning and motivation is starting to gain steam!

***DISCLAIMER--This is not part of the KC Mini Series, in 2014 or 2013***
