Tournaments / Re: Mini Golf at Club Championships???

ummm...there are note enough options to answer, I could not find my response listed....

I think it was Mike's veiled attempt at humor, its hard because everything in Detroit is so hard to handle, they still are driving around celebrating their Stanley Cup Victories, and their Football CHampionship years of the 50's there....eventually once the mayor has completed his prison sentence, the rest of the state shuold catch up to the great things at Kalamazoo, and then have a drink of Bells, and be much more 2 hearted to handle in the rest of society.....

AS for Dick.....welll....Kevin you're awfully nice almost as nice as Keizer was mean...... ;D

Can I get some people out here?  Will anyone show up to try to take down ARTURO, thats right, I said it, ARTURO WILL WIN, who is going to prove me wrong?  (note it will not be me!  I want a cool long sleeve shirt, so I will be playing Am!)

I just wanted the flow of #6 to go where the stairs are for people Keizer......I believe that Drew will be the next CC at Cliff Drive as he has expressed an interest.  Maybe I'll keep #5 long........I am leaning that way and started to think about it last night, tromple some of the growth up around there is a good idea.

i am also making BV as short as I can for this event......top pro's calling some of the holes tweener holes I think are more at the top of the course than the bottom of the course from what I was given feedback both at the worlds and when I asked at the USDGC.

We need to talk about the bridge on #3, that could be a little more than I can get a grant for, and I think that it would be a better placement for alternate #13 to go there than 3, so lets think about it before we decide to carve anything out of the woods.....

BTW, I did see mowers out at Cliff Drive this morning, so it may be the last mow of the season, and just intime for this event!

There I fixed it!

Registration at Blue Valley only.
Never got my PDGA Online e-mail set up, and really was too busy to care.

Ryan, probably ~4.

In the past registration is generally from ~8:30-9:30 on Saturday trying to tee off by 10, I know last year I saw Lisa Lampinelli on Friday night and shouldnt have been driving to SM Park on Saturday still.....the on Sunday I think that we shoot for a 9:00 or 10:00 start, hoping to get the ball rolling and the second round of the day ~ 2-2:30....

I could be completely wrong though, but that has been the past few years....

Ohhh I love this change! ;D

I will try to get out on Friday to set the courses.  Cliff Drive is almost set, but I lost my keys last night during league while moving baskets, thanks to Drew I found them, all that needs to move at Cliff will be #5 & #6.  Blue Valley will probably be set with the exception of #3 and #9, as they will require temporary settings.

*Island hole, you must land on island to throw from it, other wise use drop zone, or where it last went out of bounds.  You may throw from drop zone after your drive goes out of bounds.  so if you if throw your drive OB, you play regular OB, if your subsequent shot goes OB, you may go to drop zone where you will be throwing 5 to get on Green.

Blue Valley, I have not been out there since the World's, so I am not sure where the pins are currently, but this is what we will be looking at for the course.

I could use some help in getting #3, and #9 set up.  I will probably have to use one extra basket as I don't have another sleeve, but I may see if I can get one.

Looking forward to seeing folks out there this Saturday.

Tournaments / Re: which tourny are you attending?

BOth are great venues, and it looks like Sunday will be a warmer day!  I doubt that my arm can handle 4 rounds in 2 days after throwing enough strokes at Winthrop for a year of golf.

If you have to make a choice, it will not be a bad one regardless of where you go, but I for one am staying close to home.

I personally think that it is awesome that we have events this late in the year to make up a season!!

Does it matter which course you go to?

Play the one with interesting stories, or the one that gets mowed more often (supposedly) you will have a great time with disc golf in KC this weekend!

Folks,

Mike was our biggest supporter over the years that I worked with him.  His shoes will be hard to replace.

Dear Friends, Peers and Co-Workers,

We wish to share with you our announcement that we will retire from Kansas City, Missouri Parks and Recreation effective December 1, 2009. This decision to retire was not easily reached considering our combined investment of over 62 years in public service to Kansas City. During that time we have had the privilege to serve with four Directors including Frank Vaydik, Jerry Darter, Terry Dopson and, most recently, Mark McHenry. Also, we have had the opportunity to work with twenty-three Parks and Recreation Commissioners on thirteen different Boards, eight Board Presidents and five Mayors (too numerous to recollect are the number of City Council Representatives and City Managers we have supported). Michael was honored to have been appointed as Secretary to the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners from 1988 to 1996. Each of us has enjoyed good opportunities for job growth, satisfaction and security.

For nearly 32 years, we have been part of many changes as KCMO Parks and Recreation has evolved in an ever changing social, political and economic environment. We have experienced at least six re-organizations and seen the number of staff decline from 642 full time employees to 273, a 135% loss. In that same period, responsibilities, expectations and needs have risen dramatically. For example, consider the following increases since 1978: parks from 160 to 219 (+37%), miles of boulevards, parkways and park roads from 126 to 176 (+40%), total acres from 9,366 to 11,885 (+27%), ornamental fountains from 19 to 48 (+153%), monuments and sculptures from 41 to 105 (+156%), soccer fields from 0 to 25, and miles of trails from 0 to 45. In response, we managed to excel despite difficult circumstances. This was possible only with the support, hard work and sacrifice of many loyal and dedicated fellow city employees and community leaders. These are the persons with whom we shared first-hand the challenges, successes, failures, discoveries, disappointments, joys, sorrows, births, marriages, divorces, retirements, illnesses and deaths that are integral to work and life. Many became our mentors and treasured friends. It is an honor to have worked with such exceptional people for an outstanding community service organization and contribute to its success. Our professional careers with KCMO Parks and Recreation have been fulfilling and complete. We are thankful.

We are blessed to be able to retire together with good health and security. Retirement at this time in our lives offers us the liberty to explore new and exciting challenges while we are still able to enjoy them. Plans include time for family, friends, home, travel, projects, hobbies and many other opportunities for self-discovery. We look forward to a life open to new horizons, many of which remain yet undefined. We have not enjoyed this much freedom since we were children! We are excited.

In closing, our decision to retire has been made with great thought and consideration. It is a bittersweet time for us. Over the years Kansas City, Missouri Parks and Recreation has become "family" and will always be part of who we are. Leaving a place that has been the center of our lives for so long is difficult, at best. But, our work is complete and it is the right time for our departure. We salute KCMO Parks and Recreation. We celebrate a brave new world.

Remember, we are not leaving KC as we intend to stay in the city we love. Our paths will still cross, just in different ways.

Sincerely,

Michael and Ellen Herron

Thats just it they are guidelines, if you read it real carefully they "suggest" you do it this way, and it is their preferred method, I just prefer mine.  I think that it is a good start, and especially if you have never ran an event it really helps, but for someone that is a renegade like myself, well...... :-X

but what did i shoot last night when i whooped you?

Enought to take my money, but thats not the point.  The point is that you are a quitter.  Now that we have that acknowledged the world feels better that a quitter only finishes when he is in the lead.  I'll remember this one.  Good Times.....good times....
