No, if the community, not the city wants it done, then it will happen in accordance with the plans put forward.  This is not a disc golf driven initiative, as a matter of fact, I am on record with the city asking them to repair the basketball courts in the past, because I felt as though that it was used appropriately.  Neighbors there have indicated though that it is not used as it should be most of the time, and the people in the power within the community would like to revist Kessler's design over there which would allow us the chance to use the area.

I will walk cautiously with regards to this.

Swope / Sun Burn Open July 6th-Kansas City C-Tier

Can we keep the pins short, or get them short for this event?  I really want us to be able to play through it in about 1:30 in tourney play  after playing Blue Valley, we need a rest.

Thanks,

Jack

I have had this argument with the P&R, because I as well see that it gets used.  The issue is that at other times it truly is a hangout for inappropriate behavior patterns.

Tournaments / Sun Burn Open July 6th
« on: June 18, 2008, 03:23:37 pm »
Looking for something to do on Sunday after all the family holidays are done from the 4th?  Heading to KC to get some family time, and need an escape clause to throw some plastic at chains?  Look no further the Sun Burn Open is here again, and bring your Coppertone to protect your skin for this one!

Registration will be at Blue Valley Shelter by hole # 1 from 8-9
1st round will be ~9:30 (you know me!)


Entries will be as follows: (Ace fund will be optional $3 at day of event)

Entry Fees:

Open - $50
All other Pro divisions - $40
Advanced divisions - $30
Intermediate - $20
Recreational - $20
Novice - $20

(If you're not a current PDGA member, add the $10 single event fee to your registration.  If you plan on registering for the PDGA, or renewing, please arrive early!!)

Round 1 will possibly be 27 holes at Blue Valley, all 27, in the shortest configuration (sure, that’s only like 11,000 feet of golf).  We may alter Blue Valley slightly and will cover any alterations in the players meeting.  In the event that Blue Valley is altered it may switch to an 18 hole format to emulate possible World’s Semi-Finals layout for timing mechanics, yeah you can be a tester of the worlds courses if you are here.

Round 2 will be at Swope for with a shortened version to give everyone an ace run.  More importantly it is a PDGA event, and getting you more points to qualify for the Worlds in 2009 here in Kansas City. 

Thanks,

Jack

(Obviously contact me with any questions.)

I doubt the changes take place this year, and I need to have the course erady for the Worlds, so I will probably go with what we have for right now.  This really creates the biggest issue of #1, and where to tee, and the alternate pins that I envision, with a practice basket on that side instead of using 10 short.

I need to gain much more community approval before I worry about the changes, but if I can get them, realistically, it will mean only changing 3 pads and 2 pins.

 :(

Sorry that it can not be done yet, but this is already year 3 w/o pads.

I will try for sure.  I tried to move them all the week that I said I was going to, but the locks need to have graphite or loosening agents in them.  I hope to go out this weekend and spray those locks, look at which holes REALLY need a haircut, and start 1 by 1.  I want to start with #1, as the hillside needs to be cleared out. 

I did go and buy 5 sprayers so I want to play with a few people on Saturday and SPRAY the area for weeds this week, and then mow next.

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive-Bringing back Monday Night League!

Starting June 23rd (everyone say happy birthday to Marley for me (you can say it in your head as well!), and Susan Taylor, and Savannah Hartness) Leagues will once again resume on Monday Nights. Blue Valley will still have a league on the First Saturday of the Month.

League fees for standard mini's apply.  $5 league, $1 ace fund, $1 discount to current KCFDC members.

League will begin at 6:00, with last entries being accepted no later than 5:50.  If you are running late, please call my cell phone 913.485.5123 to confirm a spot.

With this endeavor the hope is to continue to see more play at Cliff Drive, and work on getting Tee pads within the next 2 months.  I will be tearing out the weeds and honeysuckle to "clean the course" primarily from 1-10.  I will be moving #10 to the long placement, and will be adding an additional hole on #15 (shorter behind BIG tree to South).

Unfortunately I have to work this Saturday and attend a B-day party on Sunday, but plan on working out at the course over the weekend of the 28th.

Watch for more exciting information to follow. 

Ace Fund is currently $475, with 1/2 going to the player that hits it after club dues are paid for a year.

Looking forward to bringing back Monday night leagues to the center of the city.

Tell one, tell all, it will be great!!!!!
 ;D

DANGIT, Leigh Ann Hoglund is the best! :-[
She has a 277 differential, and Lori Coffman and I are tied at 238, Brad and Fred at 207 and Caleb Walker at 206.....close is Graham Long at 198 on the 200 point threshold.

That is some great improvement for Leigh Ann and Lori.. ;D :D..as for Fred, Brad, and Caleb......well.....we may wanna check to see if we should play this sport.....

I had read last night in one of the brochures that it was available to people ages 4-90, so I thought that I would cut off at 94, I am not sure who would code the 95+ division, but if Pete Shive is still playing then, all sorts of records would be broken.....

Actually Alcohol is not allowed in any of the KCMO parks, we have a contract with the KCMO that allows us to sell alcohol, therefore administer it but for the average person, alcohol is not permitted in parks.

Most parks are free to play, but many are nominal fees of $1-$5 to play.

Disc golf can be enjoyed from ages 4-94, and the only thing that you need is a $7 disc, and a desire to meet great and unique people.

Just a couple of suggestions on the wording, otherwise looks great.  Based on this Map, there is no way that PH would make it, the sign removed would still not have enough space for the location.

Otherwise, what a great initiative.  This is inspirational, and cool!
