General Banter / Re: Snow Report in KC
« on: March 01, 2010, 10:53:00 AM »
Are you for real?? You are seriously sick of a few inches of snow. I would gladly take only a few inches, I have about 2 ft of snow in my yard in Des Moines.

Here in DSM we're on an ongoing streak of 84 days with a snow depth of 4" or more, and currently on a 21 day streak of a snow depth of 13" or more. We've had 62.3 inches of snow this winter, while KC has had 34.3 inches of snow; however your snow melts most of the time as you have only had a total of 13 days with 1 inch or more of snow on the ground. Our average snow depth this entire winter has been 6.3 inches. We've broken about ever record in the books, so don't even start in on being sick of the snow. Here are the totals for ya

I’ll see ya at Wyco in 2 weeks; I’ll be the guy wearing shorts and flip-flops  ;D

I can speak from experience, the snow in Des Moines SUX!

Why isn't the same fee applied at all tournaments then in all divisions?

Masters and Advanced are generally less all the time, very seldom are they all priced at the same point.

Advanced-Dick, how you forget your years of playing advanced, you were not playing for fun, you were playing to win, I still do, you still do when we don't play in open.  Spencer's argument wins hands down.

Glover and Tracy-you really think that we are not going to have enough old men to hold a division?  Have you seen the demographics on our league players?  You'll have plenty of competition to play in your age protected division, ratehr you want it to be for cash or for KC Cash.  This will only make you decide if you want to pony up $2 extra on the Open side.  Some will, some won't.  I think that the EC made a fine choice making it isolated to one division.  Masters players can still play the same dang golf that they have been doing for close to 10 years now (age 35 masters that got hit with having to be 40 remember this argument), and the open players now have a chance to pay for gas back to Lawrence (cooper's argument makes sense here as well!)

Overall, I think that its fine time to make this change.  I personally think that a $10 fee might have been a tad drastic, but at $7 ($8-non KCFDC Ace fund) its still cheaper than a pack of smokes in Chicago from 3 years ago........And you have a much better chance of having a better return if you do play well.  If you want to win in Masters, you can do that as well, just have less cash on hand.

Its not a forced entry, its a decision that you have chosen to view as a force, it ultimately boils down to your decision, the club is merely finally putting options in front of you to make a decision.

You should also consider "frisco" its top notch.

I 2nd that -I have played Frisco a few times if the weather permits it is a fun course and just down the road from Breckenridge.
3rd..easter seals park outside of Denver (west of redrocks about 20-30 miles) is also a good place, that should be relatively safe from snow....not as challenging as the Frisco courses, but I heard that a beatle infestation destroyed quite a few of the courses up still nice, and you play amongst horses...

Not sure if any of you met him or not, Terry and I worked on the initial contract with the KC MO P&R that is of historic precedent, as it gave us some land usage rights that were never given to a disc golf organization before.

Yes, because the city has received no revenue from the person coming in with the drink.  It is designed to prevent this exact scenario from happening.  It makes perfect sense when you look at it from the city perspective.  You are "forced" to buy my beer so that I get the $$$ and not someone else.  This is exactly why they wanted us to have this clause in the contract.

It is still illegal to have alcohol in the KCMO parks unless we are selling it (or giving it away) but the issue is really just being smart, and not putting out more trash in our parks.

See, I think that we can come up with some creativity in our little disc golf mind, lets make it happen.

You folks on the EC see if you can figure out what works best for us players! ;D

General Banter / Re: Player Ratings
« on: February 19, 2010, 12:33:56 PM »
It is an error in the input on the side of the PDGA and is being looked at to be corrected.....

"That looks like a mistake of course assignments (user input) that has the FPO on another course (Rosedale, Wyandotte or Cliff) than MPO in the semis. The MPO ratings are correct and Valarie should also have the same rating as McCabe. I'll check to see and get that corrected."

Tahnks for pinting this out, figured someone would have caught this much earlier.

Are there plans to do the same at cliff (backfill)?

Just curious.....

They have been, except for hole #6, unless you know something that I don't......or haven't played there since July.......

A couple of them need to get hit again, but they have all been already.....
