Great tag line.....rightn ow I am awaiting confirmation that everything ni the park is ready from the P&R standpoint, as of right now, I think that the weather has completely put a kabash on the pads, but that is not for certain, I will know for certain tomorrow or even as late as Friday.  They do not want to tear up the grass (or mow it if you haven't been able to tell), but at any rate Saturday is still giong to be a work day at Cliff drive supporting the rest of the community.  So we will be working out there as best as we can!

Cliff Drive / League 4-27
« on: April 28, 2009, 09:34:22 am »
Drove around the course about 5:45 no cars, so I won, got three aces and cracked my skull with a tree that fell on me in the middle of the round by hole #9, this was after a car jumped the road on #7 and hit my disc as it was in straight flight ricocheted off the windshield and hit the big tree, and slammed the chains.   I am pretty sure that's how it happened, but could be the tree that fell on my head hurt my memory, becuase I couldn't find the scorecard this morning. 

I do know I played and got three aces, I just am not sure who witnessed it or where the scorecard went.

Guess I will try to do it again next week!

I paid a $1 on Aaron's shot on #7, hit the flagpole, and prevented his disc from going to #16 down under tee...it was a LASER, he also just missed #1 some of the shirtless told us.....

I would like to know how this is going to affect the Wide Open or even the Worlds this year.  I understand full and well that our players can not drink or do anything illegal while playing their rounds.  My main concern is are they going to be harassing the players during the competition?  I know if I were in the middle of a round the LAST thing I would want to worry about is some cop bothering me.  Will there be an understanding with in the P&R that we are there to merely compete and Outside distractions would be discouraged?

this is a different situation in that they are not rangers, but rather they are police officers of the park.  THe park is essentially its own town.  Now with that in mind, they can ask to search, and you can refuse.  They can ask anything they want it is a free country, but as a citizen you have rights as well, and they are not limited to the park.

So if they ask to look, and you allow them, they will probably move on.  If you say no, I do not consent to having you search my personal belongings then they can go forward with their actions as they see fit, realizing of course you now will have irritated them, the situation could go from bad to worst.

Bottom line, leave it in the car for starters, whatever you may fear the police finding on you at SM Park, or conceal it enough so that a quick glance will not show them any reason to continue the conversation.

I live and work in Johnson County and brought this issue up at work the other day. I was surprised to hear that at least five out of twelve of them had some connection to being searched or busted for beer in the park over the last few years.  Some of them had been fishing others playing softball, but not a single person knew that a disc golf course existed in the park.  This is simple logic with only anecdotal data, but I don't think that they are targeting just disc golfers.  They really don’t want alcohol in the park. 

Its not a disc golf thing.....its a SM Park thing....I don't like the searches either, but if they target all patrons of the park, maybe they just realized that there is a disc golf course there now as a few others have figured out!! ;D

"Your personal attacks are totally uncalled for just as the harassment people are getting that are abiding by the law"-glover

Not a personal attack Steve, but what you said, that you'd go to parks that are safe is absolutely wrong, and hurtful towards the park.

"I obviously meant I will play where I know I won't get harassed."-glover
don't break the law and you wont get harrassed, if it wasn't a problem, which since this is a new issue, as we have had the course in for awhile now, it has become a problem they want to control, good for them, they want the land free and clear for the deer to roam and multiply!! ;D

"I'd say your setting a fine example on here as you are vice pres. of the club attacking one of its members for making a totally innocent comment."--glover

I do not view it as attacking, I view your response as an inappropriate statement to something that has been voiced, stated, and conveyed countless times, and your response that the park is not safe is completely inaccurate, if anything the park is the most safe in all of our parks.  Protected, and secured to the point that they feel there is a problem and they are addressing it within the lay of the land that they control.  If you view it as attacking, then you should practice more your writing skills, because it was not an attack, you the Dorkio comment maybe rude, but not attacking Glover......

The bottom line is that Kevin summed it up great.  Glover all parks have rules, break them and see what happens.  This case SM Park has their own police force, would you really expect them to not abide by the rules that they have made clear are part of the park?  Realize even if we have 200 golfers daily in the park, that we would still amount to less than 10% of the park traffic, and if we are causing 30-40% of the trash then its an issue. 

Folks pack out what you pack in....if you don't have a bunch of beer then its easier to pack it out, and by the same token, if you have it cold in the car, you'll play faster, and leave the area quicker, and have your round done, and have less of a chance to leave trash behind.....

Glover, really.....you want to call me out as attacking.....i'll not bite on that, my teeth would cause dried blood to ruin our servers, then what would we have to chat about without the computer? :o

Cliff Drive / May 2 2009-Work Day
« on: April 21, 2009, 02:46:26 pm »
Tee pad installation shuold be happening this day.  This is also the same day that the Clean Up for the area is planned.  This used to be coinciding with the Great American Cleanup that we have helped to support over the years.

THis year on top of the Tee Pads as usual we want to work on the course to get it ready for the Mighty Mo.

Hole #1-finish cleaning out the rest of the area to the West of the hole now (up the hill).
--Mow around the basket, clean up and ensure its mow ready for the season
--Marquee (Rosedale steel/steal one?)
--Create new area striaght north of tee for new alternate placement (doubtful for this weekend)
Hole #2-mow the fairway, rebuild stairs (replace basket)
Hole #3-chop HONEYSUCKLE on the ROcks down and out.
--Clean up the hillside down to the road
--create exit strategy from the basket
Hole #4-continual loving the fairway with mowers (replace basket)
Hole #5-better stairs, clear out the old fairway (North of existing Basket)
--Get trash out of there, it was dropped from the road, due west from existing basket
Hole #6--mow fairways, clear out the debris, trim tree lines
--Get all the TIRES out from the new pin
Hole #7-trim hillside to the Western pins, remove old cuttings
--------Between #7-#8 clean and mow proof the area for the walkway, design the path better, and ensure no new growth along the rock face
Hole #8-Trim South of pad, try to get the boulders out and use by #7 tee
--remove trash on the hillside
--grab the plastic tubing for the drainage on the pads in some areas that is located on the East side of hill about 1/2 way down for pads, 1, 2, 7
--Trim up the long placement, get the shorty one in, and make the "band staging area" good to go with the bricks, rocks, etc to possible build a stage, or better structure to house the actvities....
Hole #9-clean up the green, work on longer placement (Not this weekend)
Hole #10-clean, mow, trim.
--Marquee to deter #1 pad from being an issue
Hole #11-watch it grow lovingly, clean up around the reservoir to expose wrought iron
--Ivy removal from large tree
Hole #12-Trash teams removal, I would like to bring everything trashy down to the bottom, and create a place for the P&R to come and get it....
Hole #13-Clean up the trees, plant trees
Hole #14-pray the last big tree there doesn't die before Worlds
Hole #15-get the large fallen branch off, and trim and cut all the IVY off the trees
Hole #16-Wrought Iron Fence Clean up some more, lets see how many discs we can actually getin the in reservoir by having no protection.....
Hole #17-Tree trimming up the road to the South
Hole #18-I think its ok.

Let me know if you can help.  I'll make a day out of it, probably 8:30ish-7ish.

The biggest thing needed though is CONCRETE FINISHERS AND TEAMS TO HELP.  Please step up and let me know.
