This is not the best way to retireve a disc from the lake.....

Car submerged in KC lake
Kansas City firefighters are trying to determine whether anyone is inside a car submerged in a pond at Blue Valley Park.

Dispatchers sent emergency crews to the site at 24th and Topping streets about 10:05 a.m. They reported that the top of the car was about a foot below the surface, and the car may have gone into the pond during the night.

I know of a couple of singel digit tags that never made it in the circulation, and that was not to be the case. 

I think that since we kept stats for most leagues all year and events for ratings, one could even argue going with the ratings for those that played in at least 15-20 leagues.

Giving the low tags to the people that play the most though makes sense.  I mean Dick played in a lot of leagues, and he lost many tags, and would not qualify  for a good # because, well....look at his scores ;D

My suggestion was to give out the top 25 to the people that play the most leagues, that way initially you will have the top 25 in circulation when leagues starts, and everything after that would be based on losing the good number.

But hey its really about bragging rights, but not seeing a couple of the tags out there this year sorta ticked me off........and certain groups that only play within themselves for tags is frustrating, the club works towards this, not the individual cliques.....

Buy more MONARCH's!!!

Thanks Ryan,

We miss you.

House lost 6 games in a row and made the playoffs....I still can't figure that out......

This course has had its share of issues.  It has some great people working with the city on it, and we have a fine ambassador in Mr Palmer to help facilitate what the city wants.  Park changes, originally planned in 1997.....neighbors protesting.....

What we want to get away from is us doing the work for the city.  Volunteer hours are needed always in disc golf, but in areas that have more available manpower to support local efforts, (LSPR does for this), lets let them do it.  We currently have over 14 courses in the metropolitan area, this is a stark contrast to the start of the decade.

Is every course going to be world class, no, should it, no.  Enjoy the fact that you are in one if not the most spoiled part of the world for disc golf.  Many great people have helped to promote the sport to help with this insurgence.  Many of them are no longer playing, or live here, but set forth the groundwork for new people to step up and help.

With every new course it changes.  LSPR tried to do a few things that they felt would work, others talked with them to help encourage some minor changes, and I feel as though those are the communication lines that are important.  The best way to help, is to support what they are doing, get it in the ground, work with the changes and evolutions that will happen with any course, and let people play our sport.  If people don't like it, guess what, there is another course less than 20 minutes away, as a matter of fact there will be 3-5 courses within 20 minutes of it.

Our sport will have slug bugs, they get you going, and then you find a Chevy, then a caddy, then you see someone in a red Ferrari, and you follow them, and then you join the local club, then you join the PDGA, then you help run a worlds, then like an idiot you help with another worlds to help your city get even more disc golf........

Bottom line, if you are reading this, then you should let me know how you want to help with the Worlds.  Typing in this room is good for some things, but it really does nothing to help.  Actions speak louder than words, and for the most part we have many people that type a mean game, and show up infrequent to help with the remainder of the work.

Those of you helping, thanks as always, the rest of you think about what you truly can do to make this sport better.  It really starts with joining the club, if you are not member of it (Dr. Ryan you can be excused for leaving the Continent, and then choosing to return to a warmer climate!) then what are you really doing to help support the club that has been around since there was one course.  Swope, then Rosedale, and that’s all you could play until Olathe, and that’s all you could play until WaterWorks, and that’s all you could play until......somebody came to help build more and develop relationships with the P&R so that Disc Golf became a value added partner with the P&R, not the hippie sport that people sometimes feel it is.  

We are a great group of people, don't ruin it by thinking that the P&R are not "professional disc golf designers", they are not, but they can learn from our comments constructively and in the right fashion, not spiteful and harmful sayings with cheek and tongue comments.

Did I spew enough to kill this thread yet?

Meeting tonight for the once in a lifetime experience to help ensure KC's place in history.

How will you help it be that?


Club Archives / Worlds Meeting 12-2 @ 7pm @ River Market
« on: December 01, 2008, 12:16:42 pm »
As stated at the Club Meeting, we will be meeting at the River Market for the last Worlds meeting of the year.

This is basically to look at new art, start to finalize projects, and work on new ideas to reach out to others that want to help.

After this meeting, all Executive meetings and the Worlds Meetings will be together on the same night.  So our next meeting is slated for 1/6 I believe at TMS, after the EC meeting.

This is not a course that is open for a re-design.  There are VERY specific parameters that the park has given with the lay of the land.

I am working with JCPRD, on this as is Dirk if you want to help, get involved with the people that have been working on this project for over 5 years now.

If you want to help there will be some work days, and that would be the best method.  If you want to go out and look at opeiongs, and such that is fine, but please be mindful that many many hours and administration changes have taken place, so we must be careful, and more importantly we have to be as one.

Are there some nice pictures of the 09 Worlds courses around, not otherwise buried in a Flash presentation?  :)

I do not believe so at this time.  We have been spoiled by PlayDg, and really haven't done much else with regards to that.

they open the registration to everyone about 6-8 weeks after invites, then it is first come first served.  So have your PDGA membership active and ready to go.
