General Banter / New Officers for the Club
« on: January 30, 2008, 09:55:56 AM »
I am sure that our incoming President will chime in here, but I wanted to thank everyone that came out last night to voice opinions and show support for the KCFDC.  I wanted to get a list of the new officers, and we will update the pages over the next few weeks to reflect these changes.

Thanks to all of you for allowing me the honor of being President since 2001.

Here is your new 2008 EC Board

President-Rick Rothstein (2 Year term)

VP of MO-Jack Lowe (2 Year term)

VP of KS-Tom Butler (Interim term 1 year)

Secretary-Chris Timko (Interim term 1 yr)

Treasurer-John Chapman (2yrs)

Sgt @ Arms-Tavish Sanders (1 yr remaining)

Course Coordinators(1 yr positions)

Swope-Matt Hays

Rosedale Up top-Dennis Freeman

Rosedale Down Under-Jay Rivard

Olathe-Bob Hyatt

Water Works-Bill Neenan

WyCo-Tracy Walker

Cliff Drive-Mike Penney

Blue Valley-Mark Morales

Yates Elementary-John Theiss

Pleasant Hill-Dan Coffman

Shawnee Mission Park-Dirk Hacker

Now we have 17 people total on the EC board.  This club is growing, and we need more people to help out.  When we had 5 courses, back in 2000 it was a little easier, now that we have 11, and plans for 3-4 more over the next year, we need more support, locally at each course.  Take pride and ownership for your course.  You make the difference, and we all need to make the difference when it comes to our courses.  Teach someone how important it is to spend even 1 hour a month at the course to help its beauty.  We are the people that can make the difference, each one of us owe that to our sport.

Thanks again , and I look forward to continuing to make KC the best place in america to play disc golf!!

We heard last night ~$4k total raised.  It takes time to have accurate account, as stragglers come in late, lets push that total to 300 people that helped with the Ice Bowl, start a wimp LIST

the litter is a bothersome component, but the alcohol is a bigger issue, you really must watch it out there folks, this is a serious matter, and although I don't like the idea of a public park not allowing alcohol, be SMART, don't ruin it for all of us.

Ah, but they are not park rangers, they are actually police officers in the SMP land.  The rangers have other things to worry about like Deer, and picnic baskets....

Here Here!

Seriously folks, they will get you there if you drink.....they have their own POLICE DEPARTMENT, not just Rangers, but actually LAW OFFICERS, it will be a sad day when we have to report here the next fund raising event to help Disc Golfer IDIOT out of jail from SMP....

Whose bringing Chili?  Last year we ran out, we need more this year folks, and we would like to have someone bring something besides warm chili, like fresh vege's...since Rick thinks that it is going to be 48, weather should be perfect, and the veges will remain at a great temperature.

I plan on bringing my chili out there again, and hopefully will win the award again as best Disc Golf Chili expert, because, well I'm that good, and I of course did not write down any recipe from last year, so this years chili will not be a repeat of last, but rather a new chili that will be even better.....

What else can you bring to help?

Prizes for Ctp's...
Tables to put prizes and food on
A corporate check for $20,000 or a personal check for $20 is fine, heck even cash of $2 is good....
Buy Mulligans
Bring  a Friend
Bring a mistress
Call the TV stations and ask about the Ice Bowl, when is it, and how do I sign up, and what time will you be covering the finals?

Other ideas?

General Banter / EC Agenda 1/10/08
« on: January 09, 2008, 04:08:00 PM »
All are encouraged to attend, we will be meeting at TMS 701 SW Blvd KCK.  I would encourage all those that want to run for a position to be in attendance, at this point, I would say that we will probably be having the elections after the Ice Bowl, where we can let the other 260+ people that should be playing know about the event as well.  If you have any questions, please call me.



KCFDC E/C Meeting 1/10/2008

6:30-Call to order
6:32-See if we have Meeting Minutes from September Meeting (No Quorum)
6:35- Election location ideas, date  before or after Ice Bowl? , nominations to date

(Shiners lodge-$130, +$50 for a bartender)

(Possible Westin for free)
6:55- Ice Bowl-Rick, have New Belgium on board, where we need other help with, Chili, power, more foods….
7:10-’09 Worlds-Jack-Hotel, is $129-$139 @ Westin too much for our players to pay, does it make more sense to have the event in OP for $109 instead, and should we push downtown with all new amenities towards our players, I think we should, what do others think?  Courses need to get list of what every CC wants done to make their course an A++ ready place to play.

7:25 Newsletter Information-Rick What do we want, and how to get it all online, and available for print to those that need it?  Do we send only the online note with a link and basic advertisement on postcards, or do we continue to make an actual dead tree version?

7:35- Upcoming events, lets plan out the entire year, or at least through the Summer, how many KCFDC events need to be PDGA with the Worlds fast approaching, many events will fill at max levels with the interest.

7:45-Wide Open-Dan, last year for Team Cashen, who will step and take over as the running man for this event, last year for NT probably as well, next year A or B tier to defray from Worlds activity, possibly April or Early May time frame….Where are we at for 2008 KCWO

7:55-Open Discussion

The key is donations.


Set the tone, make it possible to do this like a walk-a-thon, and get sponsors, lets see who can rais ehte most money.

As for the tax status, we are still working on that, I am working with an attorney on that and am hopefule to have by next year.

It takes many people to make it work, and we have been good, but the cities that you mention typically get a matching sponsor for their efforts, we have not, so be sure that you understand how these places make their charitable contributions,  and then try to mirror them.

Every year I drive to each of the TV stations and give them a heads up usually about the first of the year, and then follow it up the week before the event.  Rick does a great job of the press release, and then I give it to them directly so that it does not get lost in the cyberworld.

It takes an army to run and help, so we shall count you in on sponsorhip ideas Steve, Thanks for volunteering.

Really need to get everyone on the EC on the same page and with the holidays here and all, this has always been a hard time to schedule around everyone's interest, so the start of the year will allow us time to meet, get the plans in place and have a more organized meeting that will have substance to it.

Its not like I am disappearing, I will still be on the EC, just in a different capacity, so as for the lame duck....a quote from Duck Soup for ya...."Request help, 3 men and 1 woman trapped in building, if help is unavailable send 2 more women, 3 more women."

Love Groucho.....
