With the overwhelming response from the 23 people that viewed this post since I put it on here..... ;D

I need to add another topic that MIGHT get done.  Tee pad gravel was put down today on 4 more pads, so now then the following holes have gravel:

My guess is that this week they will get them all taken care of, and then for my meeting with the neighborhood association next Tuesday they will either be all done, or all ready, and we are awaiting the poruing.

What that could mean, is that we need to install tee-signs as well possibly.....
WOW...whats BP gonna say abuot that?

Its a great course John, don't fool yourself.  Just because it plays under 5,000' doesn't mean that the course isn't good. 

Getting the 8th grader started, thats how it starts.  By the time I was 14 I was playing daily myself......probably better and with a lot less discs than I do now!

I just sent this to the old KCFDC forum list, and hopefully this new item will attract more attention.  I need help to make this work.  Keizer, and I can not, and will not be the only people to make this happen (yeah I know there are a few others that are good helpers, but he is the Course Coordinator, and thus called out by me!)

SO come 10, come all, and call a friend, and have them call 3 others.  if everyone that reads this calls 3 people and 30% of all those people come....well we may have 5 show up....that'd be great......but it'd be better if we had 20-30 people, we might get done early enough to play on Sunday instead of working.....(nah too many things to do always......welllll)

Here is the note....

Sending this to most of the people running leagues, and then also to the old board.  First off if you are reading this, you shold be signing up and reading items at the sign up today if you haven't.

Please spread the word about the work days this weekend at Cliff Drive.  We need to have work done there, and all of our courses.  We are less than 6 weeks away from having over 1100 people come to our house.  How does your room look for the company?(courses duh)  Get out and help where you can.  If you can't make it to Cliff this weekend, please get out and help soon.  Down Under is going to be used as well, and we need to buy new baskets for this course, repair the tee pads,'ve played it you know it needs it.  So watch for more information about a tourney/workday/fundraiser for that to come up soon.  I woud anticipate that event in the next few weeks.

Some things that will be needed this weekend at Cliff Drive-
We plan on working on the holes 1-8 for the most part, taking out trash, mowing, triming, removing honeysuckle, repairing trails, finishing the stairs out, weedwhacking, repairing trails, and removing honeysuckle.....did I mention removing honeysuckle, and repairing trails yet?

Getting the overgrowth out is what we want to do.  The road around #3-#7 is closed during the weekend, but I have access to it, so call me and I will come get you in and out if need be.  We look forward to your help with making Cliff Drive another fine gem in the stable of disc golf courses that Kansas City has to offer.

Don't just be a USER, be a helper as well, the Karma will help your game.

Please SPAM this to every disc golfer you know.

I know that many of us will be knee deep in helping to prepare for the World's these dates, but if someone is interested in promoting and nurturing some of the youth towards disc golf, there is a potential outing for a few huors a day during this time frame.  If you are interested, and know how to teach the youth appropriately, please PM me and I will work with you on getting the specifics.

The rest of you have many hours to give to the park to make them go back to work, less than 45 days we have guests in our house, how does your room look?

I lost my tag at PC a week or so ago and wondered if anyone had found tag #55. It is mine if you have it I play league at PC every Monday. Thanks.

Has anyone, like me, been playing 20+ years and never had an ace?  I've hit plenty o' chains but never got anything to stick.  Am I the only one?

Well last night was my 8th ace.

My first ace was in 10/1999

I first played in Summer of 1978

I played regularly (daily 3-4x) throughout the 80's

COntinued to play consistently in the 90's

Moved back to KC in 1999 and got my first ace at Swope on the "Dobie Hole" before the trees were removed.

Went through so many chains and fall outs, I had lost count at about 70.....Hole #1 in Oskaloosa I hit over 30x, and it never stuck.  On World's Biggest in 1999 I hit the chains at Rosedale on #7 2x with an MS....I was so mad....

It'll come......some of my aces now have been for some good cash, and others, like last night are just fun to hit!

Of course most of my aces happened after I was away from Rumple....I think knowing him slows everything down! ;D
