Tournaments / Re: To PDGA or Not
« on: August 14, 2009, 07:43:09 am »
Lebron is going to end up much richer than MJ ever was, regardless of his tattoos. He has a tremendous fanbase here in the States, but his following in China alone will probably get him his billion dollars by the time he retires. As was pointed out in that article, the average NBA ticket buyer is 25 y/o, so I don't see the tattoos as a turn-off. The reason the NBA isn't as popular as it was in the 80s and 90s is because the on-court product is akin to the And-1 mixtape series-- too much individual showboating and not enough solid fundamental play.

NO!!!!! The average ticket buyer is NOT 25 years old, that was Jason's point.  His point was that the rookie was not in touch with where the money really comes from, but rather that was his single pointed viewpoint.

Enough people clammored for the PDGA event, so I will make the City Of Fountains a PDGA event again, and based on the work at WaterWorks, next year, we shall see about the Mighty Mo.

Water Works / 2010 Construction project
« on: August 13, 2009, 04:16:00 pm »
I wanted to share that the park is going to get tore up a little, but we will work to grab some new items to help shore up the restoring of the park.  I am hopeful that this will allow some new trees etc...  Here is the information that I was given.

The Water Services Department is constructing a new large water main through Waterworks Park. This construction will impact the park and existing flying disc course. In reviewing the project with Andy Shively from Water Services, they have assured us that every effort will be made to restore the park to as good, if not better condition, afterwards.

We suggested that contact be made with the Kansas City Flying Disc Club so that everyone in the club that uses the flying disc course could be made aware of this project beforehand. Furthermore, we suggested that the KCFDC members who use this park would be in a good position to help secure the construction site and help monitor the work while in construction so to facilitate the quick resolution of any problems that might develop.

At this time the expected start of construction date is March, 2010.

I will be the primary Point of COntact for this from the Water department.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

THanks,

jack

Hidden Valley will have budgeted baskets.  Most municipalities will pay to have new baskets versus the "hand me down" versions. 
Most P&R would much rather have shiny new baskets that all match.

one disc wango.  Try it and see what happens....you will alter how you throw that disc every time.....I have played tournament rounds with one disc (QMS-like a Roc/Buzzz) and though its not suggested.....I almost got Schoen-hopper in Des Moines with it.   Beckett got us both with one disc there that day though, he used a Roc at Walnut Ridge.......I was ticked. 8)

Beginners / Re: Player rankings
« on: August 13, 2009, 10:13:38 am »
The higher rated people you play with the better your rating will be.  This is because the formula works with existing rated people.  If you shoot a 54 at a place where all the players are rated 1000 or above you will have a higher rating than if you shot a 54 with players that were all 900 rated.  Math equation, and thus the reasoning that ratings don't mean squat except as a starting point for determining how well you should play in a field.  Scores are all that matter though....shooting a 53 at Blue Valley and not having it rated 1100 is tough, same as a 45 at Cliff Drive (stupid 5 on 1).......

Too bad we couldn't have just installed them at Smithville Lake, or the park up by Worlds of Fun.

We can, they just need to buy them and approve it.  I'd be willing to talk about doing a deal if someone wanted to use all of them to build a public course.

Baskets were $300 new, price doesn't change them, just age.  It is going back to the Club to help with all the extra expenses that we have this year.  Guarantee that it is a good cause.

$50 & $75.....are you guys nuts?  Come on....$150 is cheap for history, and a real basket that has been proven to catch!
