all pads same size
16x8 in the rear
x4 in the front
Plan on heading ahead with Kelly to level and string off the pads, as we finish people can come in and align the wood against the string, and it will be level, then next week get the city to come and pour and finish.
Wood was dropped off by hole #8 basket today, so we will use the "party area" as the staging launch.

It is happening folks......

I am slammed at work, but the plan is for me to pick up the supplies at the Parks building Friday morning.  I am hopeful that this is confirmed with a note to the parks that was sent in follow up to my conversations last week to establish this time line.  I do know that they are out of pocket until Thursday so at this point it is a go.  Do not look for any follow ups from me about it, as I will be heading into meetings the next three days, and will not be checking on this or other threads.

AS of now, yes.  We need tools to make it work, but I believe that Keizer said he has what we need.  If we have others that want to help, the more the merrier, we can maybe station the cutting of the wood, and I will have the boxes marked out to make it easy for other teams of individuals to make it happen.

Thanks and yes, please bring more help, we need it.

Thanks,

Jack

I am planning on starting to get the pads formed up on this w/e.  I'll be grabbing the supplies from the P&R this week or next and then will need help setting things up.  THe only holes that may have to wait will be 1 & 7, and I also want to pick up trash by #1, #5 (top of the hill that has been dumped) and if adventurous, #12.....pipe dream......

I also hope to get the baskets all replaced during this time frame with the actual baskets instead of the practice baskets.

Any and all help would be appreciated, please spread the word.

Lets try 9-3 for a time frame on Saturday, and 10-3 on sunday.

No that was your mamma I gave it to.....I got it from Bensdadfred's mamma on Monday, just passing around the gift that keeps on giving......

My first experience, was my Dad, and Mom taking me to Wildwood park back in 1978 in Ottumwa, I played a few holes, then went looking for tadpoles in the water where I think 16 is located.  This course was seriously less than 1/2 block from my grandma's, though at the time I think it was just a summer w/e event.  Then in 1984 I moved back to Oskaloosa and they had put in a 9 hole course, I of course being of sound mind and thinking that I knew everything, already thought that I knew the sport better than anyone, and started to get rides to the park.  Then I met Jim Brennan, and actually purchased my first discs, I believe it was a hammer, and #1 putter, I think, I remember it having hands holding on to it from both, and then a basket in front....shortly afterward, there were the cruiser (which floated, which was cool, since we played renegade golf in Osky, and playing over the water was tough, but better, then in 1987 the Eclipse came out, and by then it was all over.  

Actually after I wrecked my motorcycle in 1985, and got out of the hospital and rehab, and the sad realization that baseball was done for me, I started on this sport, played regularly until I moved to KC in 1990, where I couldonly find Swope and it was pay to play, kept asking about this Rosedale course, had a votex I bought here with the Rosedale Memorial Arch, and assumed the course was located there, it wasn't, and after 6 months of looking for it (the guy at Swope told me he had never heard of it, I think he wanted my $8) someone came into Oak Park Mall and listened to my sob story, said they were heading there now, I immediately asked for lunch, followed them there, found it, and then played Rosedale.  My first "organized" event was the 1992 World's Biggest, ran by none other than CD....

I moved to Chicago, and my neighbor played, he was from Joliet, where Gary Lewis ran leagues, and then I realized how good KC courses were in comparison, played Water Works before the pads went in one w/e after driving along 9 to NOWHERE but found after getting back to Rosedale, then Olathe, and by this point I had played all the courses in northern IL, central IL, and Wisconsin, Detroit, and mostly central to eastern IA.


When I visited KC after moving to chicago, I was always impressed with the way the courses looked, everyone was clean, easy to follow, and generally a solid test of game.  I promised myself when I moved to KC to get involved to help with this wonderful sport, and here you have me, deal with it!!

Thanks  Jim !!

It is a benefit for the neighborhood.  It has been planned for some time, I doubt that the two will hurt each other, as we are not looking at the same type of format.  I anticpate that the NE festival is going to cater more towards the local community there, and though it will have some fine prizes and giveaways, it is strictly a charitable cause and not a full blown competition, that will be the next day at the Mighty Mo.  There are no other dates that will work for the event at this point based on my schedule, and the already heavy schedule of disc golf prior to the worlds.

Central Plains Jam Band is probably going to have an event at Swope on the 25th of April as well.  That is TBD

The NorthEast Fundraising event is also on May 9th, it will probably be at Cliff Drive.

Mighty MO is going to be on May 10th, as the Lamoni returns, and I will not, and do not want to run against the likes of the Graceland crew, they scare me!

Nope,

Other things to worry about.  Host hotel is locked and loaded, and I am responsbile for filling it, so I will not worry about any other hotels.  There are plenty, but you will be driving, fighting parking, and missing many fun times not staying at the Crown Center.

Too many other things to worry about now.  The hotel has been set, and is a done deal.  I do apologize in advance, but if you call and ask where else can I stay, I will not have an answer.  Do your own homework, there are plenty of cheaper hotels, there are no other "HOST HOTELS".  This facility has 800 rooms, houeses everything we need, and is a one-stop shop for everyone, players, spectators, family, so that even those people that do not like the sport, but have to travel with thier freaky disc golf lovers, have things to do all day every day without having to worry about how to get there.

Westport and the Power and Light district are a short cab ride, or bus ride away, or visit one of the 5 bars in the hotel.......
