Shawnee Mission / Re: Course installation update
« on: September 27, 2007, 04:54:14 PM »
because the park said so.  We do it at their speed Tom, not ours.  It is their land, and this has been a long time in the making.  Ed and Jake first went to meetings for this over 6-7 years ago, and we are just now at thit point.  A few months longer is going to help us, not hurt us.

Hope that helps.

Real quick.

Yes it is happening.

Location is different even from what I have said to a few people.  It is going to be at Blue Valley in the morning, then Cliff Drive in the afternoon.

River Market is giving us Buy one get one free beer after the event, so we will not have a keg this year at the event, and hopefully no one will drive their car through my house this year as happened last year.

Entries are pretty simple:

Open Men-$50
All other Pro divisions $35

Advanced divisions $20

Intermediate/Rec divisions $15

There will be an additional $5 PDGA fee to pay for non members

$3 Ace Fund 50/50 split CTP at end of round if none hit

Registration at Blue Valley from 8-9:30

Look for more information as I get things going together for this event.  Yes I am listed as TD, but that is because I paid for it at the beginning of the year.  I am working with the people that have ran the event in the past, and will make sure that it does happen.  It will be very low key, and Blue Valley will probably NOT be in the LONGEST setting (esp 17 & 18) everything else may be, but they will be in the short placements.

River Market is going to be the place to play afterward, look for a little more information as things get closer to next week.

New job, takes time, and I am sorry for not being around as much lately, I hope to change that as I will not be traveling in the new position.  Bear with me as we move forward.

Angie--67(58 handicapped for bag-tag, and her personal BEST on the course with the 67!!  She was an up shot machine the card said, dialed in on 200' shots for sure!!)

Reminder tee off on Monday at 5:30 please.  Call if your running late, exceptions can be made, CAN...

Cliff Drive / Cliff Drive to start at 5:30 the rest of the year

in October towards the end, we will look at at a 5:15 start if needed, right now though 5:30 works good

I would like to schedule one, 16 and under only, have it by the PDGA division guidelines, but non-pdga event.  I would like to see us have more Jr's in the worlds in 2009 than any other time.  Tavish and I had talked about doing this, and would probably be at Swope, we would want it to be trophy only, with a minimal entry fee, and possibly a disc for the entry as well.  Would like to see what type of responses come in here for starters.  Would also like to have one adult chaperon with every card to accurately keep score and give pointers to the group on rules and etiquette.  I bet that most of the players that would play have experienced parents that already know the rules, but having that presence to enforce it would be good.  I am also going to hit up the local Kiwanis club to see if they would sponsor food in between rounds.

please respond, this is a great idea.

The park board had asked for members of the EC to attend and discuss the idea of disc golf.  I am working on a presentation if you will of what the KCFDC has done to help parks in KC, and should be able to counter all arguments about it being bad, there are bad eggs in life, and disc golf is not alone, but we have collectively as most of us are members done a good job pushing our sport to the betterment of the communities that we are in, not a detriment to it.  When the park wants a collective showing of support for the project, and open to all parties, we will clearly let everyone know.  The old adage too many cooks in the kitchen applies right now, and we want to ensure that are efforts and the parks efforts are in unison.  The efforts not only on the E side of KC, but also the W side in Shawnee Mission will take time, we do not have a strong track record in these municipalities as we do in WyCo and KCMO P&R, we want to ensure we are favorably viewed not only by the P&R but in this instance non-threatening to the land owners who have valid concerns about their property.  If you owned land that was being used differently than it had been in 50 years, you'd be just as upset, we want to partner with them and have them aware of the benefits of our sport, and also the realization that their backyeard is going to change with or without them, and we can help in some concerns, so lets partner up!

This is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN this weekend.  I know that many of you are sad, as it has been the mainstay of Cliff Drive, but alas the past few years I have always been in CHicago this weekend, and this year I can not get back by Sunday, nor have I done my due dilligence in gaining the required 18 sponsors that I like ot have for this event.

I will work on rescheduling this event for October, probably the weekend after the City of Fountains.....or maybe doing it on the Friday after Thanksgiving is another idea that I have been toying it will happen again, just not sure when you will be able to get a piece of the rock yet this year.

Heading out to Cliff AGAIN!!

Mucho Thanks to Keizer and Dick for coming out on the hottest day of the year recorded yesterday as we cleaned up #4, removed a few trees, and then #8.  I will be heading out there shortly, with plans to work as long as this fat man can stand the heat.  Probably picking up trash on #6 for starters, then working on installing the benches where I can as well.

The course is looking GREAAT, if you cant help clean it, come play it!!
