General Banter / Re: 2010 pdga Mo events

Personally, I think that you would be better served to discuss with the EC, instead of putting it out here.

I run the Mighty Mo as a C-tier, because I don't have time to raise money, and I think that it is silly to give the PDGA more money based on the event level both from a standpoint of entrie fees, and sanctioning fees.

You should also realize that Thornfield will undoubtedly have at least 4-5 events that are charity driven during this time frame, they typically will have at least 60-80 people out there on these days.

I guess I think that you should sit with the new EC and really figure out what you feel is your goal, and see if it aligns with the KCFDC.

The goal of the KCFDC is not to line the pockets of those people playing in events, it is to promote the sport of disc golf to people of all ages, so making some money to help finance that goal has typically been my vision.  We run the Wide Open as the money maker for most people, the otehr events are to help our courses remain in shape, and to enjoy bringing in people to play on great courses that no other part of the country can offer.

Realize that people have been helping running events in Kansas City for over 25 years, and some of them are the same people......You need to ensure that you are looking in the right direction.  You also should seek some of the history, as we withdrew our proposal back in 2004 for the US Womens Nationals, and we had some good topics there.

Getting information from the folks reading online is not the answer, the answer is get the information you need from the people that step up and do the work, and make the events happen.  Also you must realize that the KCFDC has contracts with most of the municipalities within the metro area to help protect all of our interests, so going away from the KCFDC for any event, could be met with some harsh criticism from the parks people.

I guess what I am trying to say, is slow down, wait until your first meeting, bring it up, discuss, see what the EC thinks, and then collectively come up with a plan that works.

That is my suggestion.

I got extra keys..........the only real problem with the pin there is that the Kids use it as a jungle gym.  I have to go by there almost daily and ask them to stay off of it.

I like the Island better, but maybe I'll move the course to World's configuration for you Ryan, its been the same since City of FOuntains, and Club Championships.

After my car was stolen, and I had to replace a lot of discs, that is what I wrote on top of most of them, so it has to be my disc! ;D
