General Banter / Re: Lee's Summit Course close-need some support
« on: October 25, 2007, 09:10:23 AM »
The Park Board heard the suggestion for a course, and no action was moved forward on it as of now, but it was met with an enthusiastic stance from the board.  We are hopeful at this time that the next meeting will have a motion to move forward with approval of funding securement for the plan.  At this time it appears that things should be ok to move forward with regard to this, but I would ask that you help.

Here is how, send letters supporting the disc golf course in legacy Park, particularly if you are a Lees Summit resident, those will be added to the mext meeting, which is a combined meeting for November and December.  I would send it to the
Lees Summitt Park Board
C/O "I want a Disc Golf Course Please"
220 SE Green
Lee's Summit, MO 64063

If you do not live in the area, you may want to indicate that you would be willing to drive to the park once it is in, and look forward to playing on yet another disc golf course within the Kansas City metropolitan area.

I will keep you posted as we move forward with this and other areas of new places to play locally.

it was a good turnout:
Leslie Palmer
Brian Palmer
Will Love
Jr. Love
Jack Lowe
Dan Coffman
John Theiss
Heath (unsure of last name)
Jake Bowen
were in attendance, and the plan looks pretty good.  We are going to try and plan a watch/look around over the next couple of weekends, we have a prelim map and discussed the idea of housing discs on the community center.  They have thought this through pretty solidly, it goes before the P&R board tomorrow night, if you are a lees summit resident, I would suggest writing a letter to the park board expressing your interest.

It is moving forward, Wednesday will tell if it is this year.....wow....or next....they are looking at finance options....

scheduled to be outdoors at the new Legacy Park shelters will be moved

General Banter / Call for you to HELP-Do you want to make a difference?

It is that time again for the fall elections.  I would like to know if you are interested in making a difference in the way that disc golf is formulated around Kansas City.

The positions that are up for election are as follows:

President

Vice President of MO

Treasurer

Secretary (Former resigned)

All Course Coordinators:
Swope
Rosedale
Olathe
Down Under
Water Works
WyCo
Cliff Drive
Blue Valley
Shawnee Mission Park

In addition to these offices, we would also like to start to work with people that want to help with the 2009 Pro/Am Worlds and start to set up committees to make this event run smooth.  The Committees will vary, and will want to use your expertise in many areas to help us out.  The location for the meeting is to be determined, but with the by-laws, we need to have 30 days notice.  We are looking at the 13-15th of November to make this happen.  The Club Championships will be November 3-4

If you are interested in this position please contact Tavish Sanders our Sgt/Arms (913) 449-8381 or Dirk Hacker Vp of KS (816) 678-4468.

Here are the by-laws for the election process.

6. Nomination and elections of EC members. An election committee, consisting of two members of the EC who are not up for re-election, shall ensure that the elections are held according to the bylaws, including ensuring that the nominated members are active and are willing to accept their nominations. A call of nominations will be announced to all active (dues-paid) members via postal mail and/or email notification 30 days before the fall general membership meeting. An active member may nominate any other active member, including him or herself. The election committee shall announce the nominees for each office, and then ask for further nominations from the floor. Nominees from the floor must be present and agree to run before their nominations are accepted. All nominees (or their proxies) will have the opportunity to speak to the membership and answer questions. Ballots will be distributed as needed. All ballots will be collected and counted by the Election Committee, who will announce the winner before moving to the next officer to be elected. Each office will be voted on separately in this order: President, VP of MO, Treasurer, and the CCs in alphabetical order or VP of KS, Secretary, Sgt-At-Arms, and the CCs in alphabetical order. All at-large officers will serve two-year terms, with the President, VP of MO, and the Treasurer elected in odd-numbered years, and VP of KS, Secretary, and Sergeant-at-Arms elected in even-numbered years. Course Coordinators will serve one-year terms. Newly elected officers will assume office at the first Executive Committee meeting following their elections.

I would encourage you to use this forum to post why you feel qualified to handle the role you are requesting, and will create another forum to discuss the candidates.

Jack

Whoooaaa.

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.

Jack
