THanks,

I think that I am pretty good on this.  I have been working with neighborhood associations for quite some time, so I was a little surprised.  But I am confident that we will be able to move forward.  There is a few items that I think they just need to be assured of, but I have letters of support from all the associations, its just that some of them have changed leadership a few times sicne we started talking disc golf in the park (1999-2000) so some people are just not as informed, and have hesitations. 

Ill keep you all posted as we move forward....

Bad news.......Pasd hit a SNAFU, as some concerns came about with regards to wether or not the pads will blend in well with the design of the park.......I am planning on meeting with the neighborhood associations to ensure that we are all on the same page.  My argument is essentially that the pads will be less conspicuous than the railroad ties that have been there for the last 3 years.....

But I played the course yesterday with the new teeing areas, and the moved pins, and boy its fun to play out there.

Come on out and see for yourself.

I plan on doing some shore up at hole #1 hopefully Keizer will bring the generator on Sadturday ~11 to finish up there and work on a stronger clearing from 1......

17 on the island is TOUGH, probably one of the toughest holes now inthe city.  11 short from teh new pad, is a putter shot, I barely stayed in bounds on first attempt with a DX roc, second attempt with a putter put me OB.

8's new pin will be interesting to see how the foilage comes up this season.......

2, long
4, short
5 long
7 -- has been moved to its new long position, deeper in the shelf that goes up to the left at the end of the fairway. You can reach this pin either by going up the traditional shelf route, or there is also a line cut through the trees that you can use if you throw to the right of the shelf. Enjoy...*(modified 3-9-09)
8 short
10 middle
11 short (new pad top of hill)
13 short (will be putting in a new LONG soon though)
17 Island-OB RULES, you are either on the island, or your not, there will be a drop zone added this weekend ~100'
18 Top of hill

moved 10.....didn't try 11, 17 wasn't going, but I did not have my junk that I use to loosen the locks.  The problem with Cliff's locks is that they are never moved, we don't have a lot of multiple pin placements, and when the locks sit idle, they harden, so they need somje TLC.  I plan on working on it today Dan, just for you!

I also plan on working at the new hole #1 today, I want to clean it up fromt he trash, finish securing the ties, and start to think about a way to cross.

P&R will start to deliver rock either today or tomorrow, and will be working on the pads over the next couple of saturdays.  They got approved OT, and it makes them all so happy.  My plan is to work with them to develop a stronger clearing on #7 and then remove more of the rock from the face on #8. 

We shall see!!!

Changes coming, and the Mighty Mo will have tee pads this year.....really....I mean it for realz....

Tournaments / Mighty MO-May 10th
« on: March 03, 2009, 04:16:26 pm »
WW and Cliff Drive, should be the first event with Tee pads at Cliff (how long have I been threatening to have them there?).

We will start at WW and then off to Cliff in the afternoon. 

I will post details as I come up with the price plan.

RIght now I am thinking about the following-
PDGA-C-Tier
$60-open
$50-Pro divisions
$30-Adv divisions
$20-Int/Jr./Novice

There will be additional fees-
$2/PDGA
$2/Non-KCFDC member fee
$3 Ace fund
$10-non-PDGA fee

There is talk about having a charity event on the 9th @ Cliff Drive for the North East area (Indian Mound Association), I will post more here on that, I realize that there is the prostate event, but it is far away from this event, so I iwll try to ask that you choose what to do, but realize that our time for events is tight, and this date unfortunately was mapped out last December with the organization, based on our plan to have the Mighty Mo the day after the fund raiser.

More information to follow, it should be listed in the PDGA soon, sanctioning has been sent.

Keizer, Let me know who the supervisor was that "authorized this" as that is not the case and in fact it had been asked to be removed by the director of the park on many instances. 

What I would like to do in lieu of this is to work with the people that knew Denise and plant a tree in the area with a plaque acknowledging their support.  Some type of memento that does not look like a cut up wooden cross.

I would not want the club to buy this, but would be willing to work with the family at coming up with some type of idea to make this happen.

Let me reiterate though the P&R at no time authorizes any type of display like this in any parks, and are encouraged to have it removed as quickly as possible. 

This is the plan that I came up with after speaking with my ex brother inlaw whose sister passed in the desert about 15 years ago and every year their family makes a pilgrimage to the spot, so lets make it something that works and give life to us all.
