General Banter / Used PLastic needed for Police Athletic League
« on: August 21, 2009, 09:53:44 am »
I am going to be giving the Police Athletic League a few Tone Poles, and designing a course within the small footproint that they have. 

Any used plastic that you have, please let me know.  If you bring it to the Lion's den I will be sure to take it.  I also plan on using some of my Kiwanis discs for them, but would prefer to use them as prizes for the games that we will be working on.

I plan on meeting and discussing this next Wednesday with the Sergeant there.

The park is very close to Blue Valley.  I am hopeful that this will help with some recent park funding requests that I have in for the Blue Valley park.

Anything helps folks.

THanks,

Jack

I sent him a private note thanking him for disc golf in general.  I think that would go far, if every disc golfer sent a thank you ESPN may have to look at that as a push.  But then again he is a beat writer.....so who knows how much influence he has, but at any rate the article was in very good taste.  I loved Kenny's comments, CLASSIC!

Cliff Drive / Work day Friday Afternoon Hole 7&8
« on: August 20, 2009, 08:39:04 am »
We will be cleaning up the holes by 7&8 for preparation of the Lions Den.  You will also be entertained by some fly overs from the air show probably during this time!  I plan on getting there about 2 and working until 5.  Paul, Billy, Marley and myself did quite a bit of damage on it last saturday.  Mainly we have to focus a little off 8's pad and then the green on 7 for the baskets in the woods.  This will primarily be for the mini golf, but will of course help the overall course.

The more hands on deck the easier it will be.  I also plan on bringing in more plywood for the stage to expand it for the band! ;D

Saturday's weather looks great, and the airshow to boot is a beautiful place to watch it from Cliff Drive.  I will alter 15 & 16 to accomodate the folks that will be watching so we have no instances.  I would appreciate it if you would do the following with the neghborhood folks. 

Thank them for letting us play there. 
Comment on how well the park looks now.
Say wow that fence sure gives you more space now huh?
You should really take advantage of this park/course.  Right in your neighborhood, man you are lucky!

Then leave with a smile.

What I am planning on doing is after 14, you will tee off from the road and go to a basket behind the big tree.  You will then walk back to the street and play a shot that goes across the field and walk up the street to 17.  It should be pretty simple to follow, but I will have next tee signs and flags up for reference.

Should be a great day weather, and scenic views to abound!

Looking forward to getting another year older in one day!

Tournaments / Re: Thornfield Hunger Relief Challenge Cup
« on: August 19, 2009, 01:04:51 pm »
Saying they hate the date was the issue of my comment.  I think that we typically have had a good relatinoship with Thornfield.  In fact so much so that pads will be in the course to run events like the Wide Open there as well in the future.

The reason that disc golf is so popular in Kansas City is because of the Club.  If the club were not here the courses would not be added, and we would not have seen the growth of the sport locally as much as we have.

Not saying it wouldn't have happened, but having a local org with over 300 members makes an impact over a person that lives here and likes the sport....

I kept it off because, well 8-22 is all about me.
 ;D

Of course I am sharing the date with other Leo's so I guess its ok to share then!

Actually Dave, I liked how it did come up with an event every weekend for rest of warm weather.

Hate the date of the ace race -- scheduled the same time as this event. 


In the future, plpanning events, you may want to reach out to the club members or executives that have an idea of events.  AS you can see from our most recent meeting, we scheduled our events around most other area events.  It is silly to hate the date, as this date was announced over a month ago in the posting, now the other events, I can understand as they were not issued, but in all honesty, talking with us instead of maknig your first post this way....well....it would have looked better in my eyes.

Best of luck with the event however.

Jack
