Lets lok at this, and realize that yo-u altered your post after my comments, so I am not really in a position to remember everything that you said and how I responded to it, but I will give it my best shot.
"If they have no intentions of putting one in why worry about it? There are plenty of places with courses going in, just because one is not "in your backyard" does not mean that you should push an item that may alienate the P&R from future usage. I would suggext talking with me about it prior to going forward."
What that is telling me is that you had already discussed with the land owners and that they were not going to put in a disc golf course in the area. What also is not listed here is that at this time we were already knowing that a park was being looked at in Lees Summit at Pottberg Park, but was still in its infancy stages. I also "suggest" that you talk wtih me prior to giong forward. I never heard from you in regards with this, there are many things that I will say to someone on the phone, or better yet in person to actually discuss, and get into a constructive conversation that will not probably happen in a discussion room of a forum.
"I have worked on the development of 4 courses in the area, and talked with people from Lees Summit and Harrisonville about courses."
Here I indicate that I have already talked with the people in these areas, and knew of the chances for courses going in but do not disclose this, because things aer moving forward, and sometimes they fall apart.
"I understand the desire to use land that you feel may be great, but there is quite a bit of history with the club members and who has heard what, and talked with who, it would make you more informed in any case."
Again this sums up what I was saying to begin with, TALK to someone, come to a meeting, make a phone call and figure out how to get things done, typing in a FORUM is typically not going to get an answer, it will only give ideas. Answers are still made by people, and generally not on a machine.
Agree whole heartedly that others can step up but you need to also be a part of that process, not type something and feel disrespected.
Hope this helps, I understand your frustration, but again better communication would be advised. My name and number and contact information is available all over the place that you are upset about, the internet, so when I say I never heard, I did never hear. I read and type many comments, and maybe this is why I choose to stay away from some porums, but the KC one I think makes sense, as all of us can learn by it, and use it to help us better communicate, which is what i think happened here to cause your pain.
