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.

Sad....

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

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.....

Then come up with a series play in Ocotober on the weekend.  Play 1-2 courses a weekend in October, come up with a ratins, scoring system, and keep the weekend time frame for this, culminate it with a club championship, and flight those people that played the previous weekend events accordingly.  Then you get singles on the weekend, with no worry about the time, and you have the glow starting for those that want it.

I think that taking a month off earlier is better for most, but those that must work and can't play at 4:00-5:00 start time, still have a chance to play on the weekend.  It allows everyone to play not just those that get off work by 1:00 like some.......(a minority in most cases)

You could do like KS vs. MO courses,

w/e #1 Swope Vs. Rosedale

W/e #2 Olathe Vs. WW

W/e #3 Wyco Vs. P-Hill

W/e #4=Club Championships-
Cliff Drive, Blue Springs
Lees Summit, SM Park

You hit all the courses then and you could truly crown a "Club Champion" not best of the weekend.

You have a couple of options, you can enter as a league play during the weekend event, or you play for score in the overall.  You can also run it as League with payouts that we are accustomed to.

You could either make it each Saturday, start at 9:00 round 1, and 2:00 start on round 2, or do it both on Saturday and Sunday at 12:00, which ever makes sense.  Each course would be a seperate league (SM PARK, you would have to pay in advance elsewhere), so payout will be the same, or we could add a seperate fund ($1-$2) to payout at the Club Championships side bet eligible for those that made at least 80% of the events...

Food for thought.

you can do it early on, it just gets harder in the year.  The early part of the season is not the problem, and you can probably make it to the end of September....quick check indicates that sunset on:
3/15 its 7:24 sunset with twilight at 7:51
3/29 its 7:38 sunset with twilight at 8:05

9/1 its 7:50 with twilight at 8:17
9/30 its 7:04 sunset with twilight at 7:30...

10/4 its 6:57 sunset with twilight at 7:24 (Friday is 6:51 & 7:18)
10/11 its 6:47 sunset with twilight at 7:13 (Friday is 6:41 & 7:08)
10/25 its 6:27 sunset with twilight at 6:54 (Friday is 6:22 & 6:49)


SO I don't think that you need to end it in August, I think that you can make it through September without issue, but Octobr gets really hard to complete....You can see in September we loose about an hour of time of daylight, but in the spring months its not as big of an issue.

You guys can decide, I just know that it is hard to get a good league turnout (except WW) during the October month......

Swope / Re: Stiles is the man!
« on: February 17, 2010, 03:29:31 PM »
I refrain from putting down in the forums what I have removed over the course of time........some people would be downright disgusted, and never walk the land.  I have more than once thrown up while doing trash duty....

Stiles though, you are truly a great man!  We really have great people to do great things in our parks every day that they are in it.  Be a part of what makes our sport great.  We make a difference in the lives of everyone by paying attention to what we love.  Treat our parks with respect, and try to educate, if not at least inform the general masses that individually we make a small difference, but collectively we are an impact machine!

An-yon......
