Cliff Drive / Lions Den-Temp Holes
« on: August 17, 2009, 12:35:45 PM »
I will probably alter the holes #15 & #16 for the event as the airshow is this weekend.  Many people sit along the fence line by 16 and I don't want any issues...I shall see.....I may just move 16 with a portable basket from home for the day.

I had heard that the "new course" in town may be buying the remainder......

I like Chanahon, and I used to like Lbertyville wihen it was 18.  Don't sell yourself short, there are a few good courses in Chicago area for sure.  Just not as many nice courses within a short radius.....and when a course is 18 miles away it takes 20 minutes to get to, not an hour thirty! ;D

Not missing traffic for disc golf ever!

Lebron is going to end up much richer than MJ ever was, regardless of his tattoos. He has a tremendous fanbase here in the States, but his following in China alone will probably get him his billion dollars by the time he retires. As was pointed out in that article, the average NBA ticket buyer is 25 y/o, so I don't see the tattoos as a turn-off. The reason the NBA isn't as popular as it was in the 80s and 90s is because the on-court product is akin to the And-1 mixtape series-- too much individual showboating and not enough solid fundamental play.

NO!!!!! The average ticket buyer is NOT 25 years old, that was Jason's point.  His point was that the rookie was not in touch with where the money really comes from, but rather that was his single pointed viewpoint.

Enough people clammored for the PDGA event, so I will make the City Of Fountains a PDGA event again, and based on the work at WaterWorks, next year, we shall see about the Mighty Mo.

Water Works / 2010 Construction project
« on: August 13, 2009, 04:16:00 PM »
I wanted to share that the park is going to get tore up a little, but we will work to grab some new items to help shore up the restoring of the park.  I am hopeful that this will allow some new trees etc...  Here is the information that I was given.

The Water Services Department is constructing a new large water main through Waterworks Park. This construction will impact the park and existing flying disc course. In reviewing the project with Andy Shively from Water Services, they have assured us that every effort will be made to restore the park to as good, if not better condition, afterwards.

We suggested that contact be made with the Kansas City Flying Disc Club so that everyone in the club that uses the flying disc course could be made aware of this project beforehand. Furthermore, we suggested that the KCFDC members who use this park would be in a good position to help secure the construction site and help monitor the work while in construction so to facilitate the quick resolution of any problems that might develop.

At this time the expected start of construction date is March, 2010.

I will be the primary Point of COntact for this from the Water department.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Hidden Valley will have budgeted baskets.  Most municipalities will pay to have new baskets versus the "hand me down" versions. 
Most P&R would much rather have shiny new baskets that all match.
