we need to change this to the K-Mont birthday post!

Water Works / Dogs must be on a leash....
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:42:13 PM »

Specifically, Kansas City Ordinance section 14-33, also known as the leash law, prohibits dogs from roaming free in public areas. Dogs can, of course, roam free on its owner's property, but only if confined by a leash, fence, or electronic collar of some sort.

WE need to get in front of this.  There have been a few complaints about disc golfers and their dogs.  If you bring your dog to the course, you need it on a leash. (PERIOD)

I know we all have our great dogs that follow commands, and are well behaved, but we are at risk of losing courses by dogs...(and yes I completely get the notice with Swope as well).

So please keep your dog leashed at the courses, none of the courses are off leash areas.

Those dogs that are well behaved keep the leash on it, and close to your side so your dog doesn't go into any stray areas, as that is the problem, getting into people's yard.  We don't need this.

Please share.

Just spitballin'...How about over by the old campground?  From the road it looks like some possible "fairways" and trails already exist.  Water and some electricity are already in place. The building just seem to be rotting in place.

THis is one of the areas that are being discussed as well.  Shelter #7, and shelter #2.

It's a really nice map though
Oh it is.  I have Maps for the KCMO courses in that format (Topo) but not the pins and placements.  Tim did that map when we first got it in play, changes have happened without an update.  Once everything is truly set, I am sure we can get it redone as well.

I need to have him do that with Cliff as well....

that is the problem with that "map" it hasn't been updated with the "actual" new pin placements and was what was envisioned when it was done a decade ago.

Ok.  Thank you for the clarification

Ok so this is what I think I am seeing.  Please correct me if I am wrong....
1--Original #1 long
2--Executive #2 tee to Exec #3 basket
3--Executive #4 (Downhill towards Bales Lake shot)
4--Executive tee #5 to Executive pin #6 (Please tell me this has been anchored and is level, if not I will try to get out there on Friday)
5--Executive #7
6--Executive #8
7--Executive #9
8--Executive #1
9--From Fishing doc on Bales Lake to short #3 pin
10-From "inner" pad on #4 to "new" long 4 (not the pin that is share with #7 Uber long correct?)
11-From #5 to left pin
12-From #6 pad to short pin by trees
13-From #7 pad to Long pin straight, not '09 worlds long where it is #4 long?  And not the "new #7 pin" Kreeg has been working on?
14-From #8 pad to long pin
15-From #9 pad to "inner short" pin
16-From "inner pad #10" to long #9 pin
17-From "inner pad #13" to long #11 pin
18-From "inner pad" #14 to Inner pin #14
19-From "inner pad" #15 to Inner pin #15
20-From #14 pad to #14 pin by road
21-From #15 pad to long #15 pin
22-From #16 pad to long #16 pin
23-From #17 pad to long #17 pin underneath trees
24-From #18 pad to short pin? or new pin #18?

Please correct me sir.

what holes are you using?

I wanted to get out that we will be hosting the 2018 Wide Open on June 8-10.

As of right now the plan will be to use the following courses, but will be subject to change--Blue Valley(uncertain if it will be normal, or modified), Cliff Drive--Will probably use a newer configuration than what is there now, based on conversations with the PnR about changes and additions I want to see.  WaterWorks--depends on proposed path changes....and there will be a special course TBD.  At this point I am uncertain if it will be a "replacement" Swope, if it will be something that I need work with PnR with another piece of their land, or if it is just going to be so special that we will have to have a local event to map out what gets used.  Basically will be a 4 round event

The A/Tier will be Pro/AM, there will not be a performance flight this year at the Wide Open.  The Players Pack will be determined over the next couple of months as to whether I am going to do a trophy only or not will depend on what comes up to value and make that determination.  Pricepoint will probably be in the $75/range for Am's and $125 for Pro, possible $150 for Open.  I am hopeful to have a B/C Tieron Sat/Sun for Int/Rec divisions, and it will be Trophy only, probably $50 entry (ADD pdga FEES if not current), and more than likely will be 3 rounds for that.  If things progress to where I want them to go, there may be an additional $20/person fee that will accompany the event, but that will be dependent upon course replacement.

What I am hopeful for is the following-
36 to 54--Tee sign sponsors--$100 each ($250 for player sponsored free entry)
Players--I want us to be back over 350 in 2018
Support staff--Ideally we have 4 people per course as our "leadership" squad, and then have at least 4-7 support staff/spotters etc....
Support leading up to the event on the courses--workdays will be announced in advance, and notify me of scenarios on courses that need to take place and be rectified
A good time for all of us to enjoy some great disc golf, rather playing, spectating, or supporting.

There are so many things I am leaving off, but I wanted to start to get the nuts and bolts about the event out as quickly as I could once the date was announced
