Prairie Center / Leagues 9/14 and 9/21

I am trying to update stats for all the leagues, and I am missing these weeks.  Also the Safari league no stats will be recorded for group golf, as it will create un realistic scores for some people, so I did not include them.

If you have them, please share, otherwise this information is inaccurate.

Thanks,

Jack

Speaking of Which, I should post what positions will be up for election-
President
Vice President of Missouri
Treasurer
Course Coordinators-
Swope
Rosedale
Olathe
Down Under
Water Works
WyCo
Blue Valley
Cliff Drive
Yates
Pleasant Hill
Shawnee Mission Park
Lees Summit
Blue Springs


We have also talked about re-forming the EC to create a more manageable staff level.  With courses in the following areas coming as a possibility-
Cliff Drive's Scarrit Park East
Blue Valley Red/Blue
Smithville
Blue Valley Scholastic Complex
Hidden Valley

And the private courses
Teds Dread-Private
Thornfield-Private
Old Pike-Private


We may need to align the metropolitan area in zones.  I first started to think stateline, and I-70 as the divider, but it is hard, so we may have to come up with another plan ( I had another idea of North of I-70, and the State line MO & KS for 3 positions)

As we grow we have issues.  We also will need to become a 501c3 this next year, which should allow us the opportunity to gain more corporate sponsorship.

Please come and discuss what you want to talk about.  Its your club, make it happen!

I wanted to take this time to thank everyone who has been a part of the club.  I do not plan on running for any office at this upcoming elections, and as the longest running member of the Club's Executive council I wanted to thank so many of you for all that you do for the sport.  I do not plan on vanishing from the club or the sport, but I am hopeful that I will get more involved with design aspects and am currently in the midst of 4 projects with course design.  Trying to accomplish all of that, and maintain the level of interest within the municipalities that is required for strong relationships with the club is something that is really hard to manage.

The last 10 years that I have been on the board has shown me how great a volunteer organization can be, and also how sad it is that so many within our sport do not realize the contributions that a few make so that we all can enjoy the sport locally.  It seems to be the same people that do the work for the club and in the name of the club, and I am sad that I was not able to enlarge that base even more.  As it stands though, we have grown significantly over this time and I appreciate that.

I ask that you each think about what you can do to help us continue to grow.  In all honesty the best method is to just get new people to join the club and help the cause of promoting disc golf.  Though we work with many parks and recreation departments, we really do a majority of the work on the courses.  That love of the sport and the pride that is shown by us is truly unique and what has driven me to be on this club and help where I can over the last decade.

I am not sure what the future holds for me, but I do know that I have requested community funds to build more courses within the urban core.  I plan on working closely with the next EC to ensure a smooth tranisition, and to keep them abreast of projects that I work on.  I'll still continue to be proactive within my area to ensure the success of the courses immediate to me (yeah I am selfish!  But you all get the benefits as well!), and hope to be able to expand to help us grow even more courses.  We have currently over 20 places to play disc golf in the KC Metro area.  When I moved here in 1999 there were 5.  That success speaks volumes about how many of you love the game, and how you ahve made an impact on the sport.

I ask that you attend the meeting, get involved with your favorite course, and make a contribution to our community and the sport you love.  This is a lifetime sport folks, your ability to play it at all ages will never vanish.  Think about the worlds, ages 7-84 people playing.......You helped to make it happen.  Help to make the next decade even better, get involved, run a course, raise money, join the club, give where you can, time, money, energy, these things are needed to sustain our organization.

This year saw the Kansas City Flying Disc Club put on the BIGGESTE EVENT EVER in the history of disc golf.  Take that pride and share it with your friends.  Get excited, get energized, and help us continue to be the biggest disc golf club in America.  Without each of us, we are nothing, together we are a force that no one else can mess with.  I like that. 

Please come to the meeting to share your thoughts and ideas about how you want to seee the Kansas City Flying Disc Club be.  Bring a friend, and get involved.  Without your participation, we are nothing.  We need you, and the community needs us!

Thanks,

Jack

Yeah.....we may want to do a KS-KCFDC vs. MO-KCFDC before we have an answer for the other event...that could decide the team.....

I like the total ratings points idea added that could work as well......

I tend to play lower than my rating, so you would not want me on any team anyway......

You can't get a waiver for Int.....you can only request to move from Am from Pro classification.  Rec/Int/Adv are all am status......his rating would prevent him from playing in any of those classifications.  It does however take 6 rated rounds before you have an "actual rating", so if he shot some 850 rounds ( I give lessons on those.....) he might be fine.

As I was driving, I realized that we were thinking of a 10 person team, not 8 when we discussed, so that you could have 4 super stars, but the rest of the team was of human talent level.....

What are the rules?  Whos playing, who decides?  Ratings?  Word of mouth?  How is this thing organized?

I ain't driving 4 hours to play 2 rounds of golf in a scenario that I have no clue of how its being done.

We have discussed this for years, no format has ever been given to make it understandable.  THe best scenario that we discussed was with a StL, Columbia, KC event, then ratings based, 6 people teams......

You're talking 15 people ($300/team)  Who decides who can play, is it just the first 15 people?

Wayyy too many items left unattended in my mind.....Ages, gender, how is it balanced so that each municipality is represented fairly?

Let me know when you have some specifics.  Way to vague to spend that much time in the car.

OUr version that we did come up with was as follows:

StL, Columbia, KC
8 people per team
Must have the following:
2-people under 930
2-people under 975
1-Masters
1-Female

The format would be a match play with points awarded for each team.  The first location would be Columbia, with a coin flip for the next location between the two cities.  Those Cities coming would choose the course(s) to play on Columbia was determined to use Back/Indian.....

That information is probably from like 2006 when McCormack and I were talking about the winning team taking the USDGC spot and giving it to the person that team wanted to.

You had to be a member of the club that you represent.

Hope that helps.

Just saying I need 15 people will not get me, but then you may not want me to be there if I try to make it organized and specific to understand the rules for the $900 that you are thinking about.....

Also the best I could win is $40, I'd rather play homey here with people in all the above areas and be home in 30 minutes or less.....

If it is organized appropriately and managed by some assemblence of rules, it could be a lot of fun, and has been in discussion with people for years around here.

Best of luck, I know that I tried to work something, but having 3 weekends to make it work was a challenge for the people as well.
