Blue Valley / Re: Course Re-configuration
« on: August 18, 2008, 01:14:21 PM »
Basically there are items that many people are unaware of in regards to the land, and what plans there are in the future.  It is still in its infancy, people are attached to it, and by all means those that have spearheaded it from its early days need to be counseled with those that want to make some changes.

A Reconfiguration at the course is not really realistic, but some tweaking that would make the course more representative of challenges that players need can be done hopefully minimally and then also creating an even better venue.

No changes at this point will be in play until after I have a chance to work it out with others in the process.

Thanks,

Jack

We will discuss the most recent worlds, and other items.

We need you there to help.

We had planned a night this upcoming Monday, with me running league, I don't want to start late.

Lots of good from K-Zoo, looking to improve in some areas, and steal from them in others.

You can help make history, and it starts now!!!

Thanks,

Jack

I would think the parks dept has insurance for stolen park equipment.

They typically do not, and the price of having a basket replaced at $500 would negate most deductibles....

City of fountains will be played on a different layout for the Worlds preview.  We will not run a tourney of that caliber without data.

Changes will bve made, and I will announce them.  Realizing that before BV went in, I had over 60 different hole configurations.  Of which maybe 3 holes are in the current design.

Some holes will be LONGER, like #9, will be much longer, probably another 250', and will try to bring in a few short technical shots, and 17-18 as it is now, will vanish, and be practice fodder probably for the worlds.

Flame away.

#3 will not be left alone, the entire area just off the pad is over grown with honeysuckle. 

I am not talking about the area by the basket, but rather off the pad so that you can see it go into the woods.  It just needs to be cleaned up.

#12 is not a roller hole, it has gotten that way from lack proper pruning.  It can be a roller hole, and continure to be so, but it needs to have lines even to roll at, which it doesn't right now.  LaRon threw a sky Hyzer over the top of all the trees at one point, and though that is gone, there should still be an option if you have pinpoint accuracy to allow a thrower the option.


Forcing shots is a bad design, having options with risk rewarsd is a good design.  This holes just needs love to make it work in all aeras, with all the placements.

but the "straight at it line" is less than the size of one of Paul Eklund's coolers.....it needs to be big enough to actually think about, not a hope and a prayer shot.

Cliff Drive / Bike Race 8-9-08-Saturday start #17
« on: August 06, 2008, 05:27:09 PM »
Saturday Morning and all day there is a BIKE RACE, you will have to start at #17, or walk down to get to the course at Cliff, but it is pretty cool to watch, also then be very careful heading to #4 on Saturday.  It will be a little tricky to get to Cliff Drive, but you can get there...

Thanks for the heads up, I sent a note out to the P&R, it was an excuse as well to mention the pad on #8 needs to be fixed also.

Excellent!

You will want to call the North Patrol (police Dept 816-437-6200 ) at Water Works and let them know about playing there, or risk getting a ticket for being in there after dark as well.

WyCo would have a similar policy to Rosedale, as they are the same department.......

Of course we parked on 38th(I think) then walked to start on #16 when we play ROsedale late night........

Water Works / 2 Work days planned 9/27 & 10/4

The nieghborhoods around Water Works are planning a workday on the 4th of October.  We want to help.  In order to help them, we should have our own workday the previous weekend to have them help with the cleanup of the debris that we create.  Some of what I personally think needs to be done is as follows:
1-clear out the honeysuckle by the sign in area, chop it all off, maybe replace with actual shrubbery.  Prune the trees around the teeing area.
2-clear out the Honeysuckle around the pad to the right, and clean up the teeing area in general.
3-CLEAR OUT THE AREA TO THE LEFT, it is over grown, and needs to be cleaned deep.  This will allow those errant shots on the way down to be more visible.
4-mulch
5-prune trees up, mulch
6-fix stairs up to pad, they need it bad.  throw grass seed all over......
7-address erosion issues all over (more than this workday will do)
8-maintenance
9-maintenance
10-maintenance
11-clear out stumps by road
12-Walnut trees need to be raised all over and have some actual "lines" put in(same with that silly shot way left, trees need cleaned up to give an actual shot, not just a righty hyzer, unfair shots suck.
13-the area to the right of the tee pad to woods needs mown, chopped, etc.  The area up the hill has been cleared out nicely.  We also should think about the far right top of the hill pin, and creat a couple of erosion areas, built up walls, one with the pin, and another about 30' away.
14-maintenance
15-maintenance
16-maintenance
17-maintenance
18-plant some trees, really miss that double mando of a few years back, and just clean up the area, as well as possibly replace the old "stairway" to the original top pin.

Some ideas that I have, please start to share with what you feel may need to be done.

Thanks,

Jack

Cliff Drive / League Results 8/4/08
« on: August 06, 2008, 11:00:17 AM »
On what some may consider a hot and humid night, 9 players determined that disc golf is just the right thing to do on MOnday at Cliff Drive.

With the work done on the new hole #1 teeing area, and moving #10 into the long position, the determination was made that the not ready for play yet #1 would have to wait.....soon, soon......it will come.

With the heat, the throws from many were hard to keep it in the -, and thus the scores showed it:

3-way tie for first, that Hart Donation had to relieve himself from after the first playoff left a tie after 4 extra holes in the heat.  Which meant that Brain Gammon and Jamie Dangers "won" the league.

Brian Gammon-56
Jamie Danger-56
Kevin Hart-56
Jack Lowe-57
Mark Morales-58
Dan Coffman-59
Steve Hostetler-64
Matt-70
Lexi-80

No ace was hit, so come on out next monday and try to take some money!
