Their distances sometimes are close to 25% off what the signs say.

I'll see if I can get the plotted points on Swope for us from home sometime.

I tried to give it to Chappy, but it somehow ended up in my yard again....then I was using it as a water dish for the cat, and now it sits in my driveway, neglected and sad.....I'll try to get it to DGW, I was close.....if you are at Cliff, you can swing by place and it is right behind my truck.

no its is barely over 300 to the left pin from the long pad, I've driven past it before.  I know its downhill, but it isn't the mountains.....

Changed the date of the City of Fountains, it will be on Sunday the 21st.

Please plan accordingly.  The Chiefs PLay Atlanta, so it may be one of the games they win this year.......but it is away game, so I did not see any need to mess with the other folks, would rather have them on board than make them mad as they grow into the sport.



I may change it then, would rather have Charity people that had fun come play Cliff and Blue Valley, plus it gives me an extra day to set up the Blue Valley Course the way I want it.



but since the PDGA info has been up since April, I was thinking that way.....I am not opposed to moving it to Sunday though...

Very private.

I have a call in to see if we can move it to Sunday.  We will then advertise it at the City of Foutnains on Saturday.

I am hopeful that we can get both to work that weekend, it would make for some great disc golf that is for sure.

I'd like to thank Kevin Hart, and Joe hesting for all of thier help yesterday.  Without those guys showing up, nothing could have gotten done!! ???

Ok, so they were the only 2 that did not show up that siad they would.
came out and kicked #10 out fast, then moved on to #1.... where we started to clear out the area that will be the tee pad.  For those of you that do not know, the area to bottom of the current location is actually where #1 will be located at.  You will play another BLIND shot up the hill and out, where there will be multiple pin settings.

We started to work on #8, but the heat prevailed after Gates.

Right now we plan on having workdays at Cliff in the evenings prior to the Lions Den, on the 19, 20, and 21 (Non E/C members) of August in preparation for the Lions Den Open on the 23rd.

I would like to make it ready so that on the following weekend we are all set up to put in the forms for the pads, so that we can then have the P&R get ready to pour, or bring in the concrete to make it happen.

I haev not yet determined if I am going to play or work tonight on the course, but it is looking good on the course with the exception of the shaggy grass, but hey, I'll take a mow now, and mow later closer to the LDO.....

Thanks to the folks that have volunteered this weekend, but more if not most importantly thanks to all of the people that have helped over the years.  Every year we do more and more to help this park become AWESOME, and every year we do it right!!



I voted for ya!!!

Looks like the people really wanted you there....

I thought about it.....but no, I have Dylan tonight, so no need to bring a 3 yr old out there in this heat.

Had a "loaner phone" 5 minutes after I got to work....the sad thing is that my SIM card (holds phone # and some contact info) only made it to the letter H.......guess that is what happens when you have over 700 #'s in your phone......

We will start by #10 first, then move to #8, chainsaws are good for the big honeysuckle that is around, it always helps!

Hands are great as well, as when you finish a tree having someone to yank it out is good as well.

How come everyone else got it but you Timko....guess if you still played at Cliff Drive you may know it better.....but then you like to think that you are better than me so I understand the desrie to keep that feeling by not showing up for league.......

It would be better if they don't.  The more work that we can allow the P&R to do to keep and maintain the course, the better off we all are.  With all the courses that we have, donating our manpower needs to be positioned to municipalities that do not have the resources to make it work as much.  Think KCMO, and KCK, most of our suburban partners have more allotment of time, manpower and resources to make that park better.

Being able to help is good, but realize that this park was first discussed in 1997, and coming in a few months later is better than still having it on the drawing board.

Lets let them work on their timeframe.  They are well aware that the desire to have a local course is requested by many, but lets not also become the caretaker for another course.  Unless you are willing to devote your lifetime to it, we need to have the P&R understand it is their area, which in this case I believe that they completely understand, and again a few months of waiting is going to be better in the long run for all disc golfers!!

Did I mention work day at Cliff Drive on Sunday the 3rd in here yet?  Can I HiJack a thread?
