General Banter / Race tickets April 25, & 26
« on: April 08, 2009, 07:16:32 AM »
I got 4 tickets for the entire weekend.  They are with a group that has an RV, they are infield tix, they cost $140/each, you pick up a wrist band for the entire weekend so you can come and go all weekend long.  There is a group of 10 of these seats, I have 4, a buddy has 2, so we have 60%.  I will be in Lamoni this weekend, so these tickets need to go.  The guys already have a rooftop seating, these are the front row of turn 2 I believe ( I have not used the seats yet, and I am already missing the first race.....)

Let me know if you aer interested.  I believe it is Truck racing on Saturday, and open wheel on SUnday.

says the guy who doesn't know concrete......4 cubic yards for those things, and the monster pads I have are about a 10' circle will cost you about $400/each, vs $150.....try selling that

RIght, I remember the 12:00 kick out for being my typical loud self.....but I also remember vaguely playing this disc golf game, and passing out after I got to the that part of the story I am in full agreement to...

IDK.....I had not heard that the light had turned green, but I have been in attendance the last month at several community meetings where my complaints about holding up the progress is a hinderence to the evolution of the game.  These meetings have included many civic leaders, city district reps, state reps, and vying state who knows.....I'll find out though....

Not calling you out Doug, just putting it out there for everyone to see.  My suggestion was given to Dirk, and I have not seen a response from him.  I have many more other disc golf related issues to worry about this year than starting a new league.

This was more of an ideal list of what has to happen to make it work than a callilng out of anyone.

Very well, another neighborhood association in support of tee pads at Cliff Drive.  Oer the next 10 days I shuold have all the groups letter of support, and then a meeting with the last group that initially had concerns and hopefully by the weekend of the 18th we will be seeing concrete poured, and then the weekend of the 2nd we will be seeing earth backfilled to make the project complete....

That's what I say about my alcoholism.  But then I just stop... Since it's such an important step and I'm already there why go on.

No one likes a quitter, keep it up

Who's talking to the Park people? If the issue is a simple money exchange inside the park, then how come we don't fall under the same rules as the people who pay to run in the triathalon that is held in the park? Or the people who pay for the 3:2 baseball? Has it been communicated to the park officials that some of the money we collect is used for the course?

And while I'm going on...

What is the boundary of the park?

If you would have read all the posts, you realize that the CC has been talking with them, I have been talking with them, and we CAN NOT RUN LEAGUES AS HAVE BEEN THE NORM.

There needs to be someone to do the following:
1)Committ to running the league
2)Work on a plan to develop "league play" not our Mini-tourney format popular in the KC Area
3)Work with the EC to ensure that the plan is ok for all disc golfers
4)Work with the EC to ensure that the JoCo folks are ok with the proposal, night, land use, and activities
5)Develop a strong night to make it happen, and achieve local participation to increase awareness of the efforts of the club over the last 6 years to develop this property, and not to engage in activity that would thwart that effort that many have spent countless hours to harness develop, and infuse within the park, through leadership changes, and economic changes, we have maintained a positive work flow with them, losing it over a silly little thing like a "league" that you have become accustomed to is foolish, so think outside of the box.

I have given a few suggestions, but I will not be running any leagues, I would possibly play a few times, but nothing serious, even though this course is less than 5 minutes from the office for me.  I'd rather play in the trash and dumped debris.  But then that feels like home to me, and I am of course very weird......

Upon my depature of work, and the subsequent drive by of Cliff Drive, outside of seeing new presents donted by undoubtably the wonder new neighbors, there was a television, a bed, and some other new items that if I had a hankering to fix I might make use of...I saw three lonely gentelmen throwing plastic at shiny metal objects.  They then gave this rather large Floridian man an oragne card with numbers on it that appeared at my house.  With this large Floridian, there was "heat" a disc ctaching dog that apparently can not jump as high as a "Darby" but is able to catch these discs better, and is teaching one "darby" how to enjoy the discs....the numbers on the card meant nothing to me though they said the following:
M Hayps-67

THis large floridian then consumed a few barley flavored water bottles with something called Budweiser in them, and amongst all the watching, the mighty Green Spartans valiant to a point, were sliced by the Roy Williams lead Jayhawks to another tournament win to the Kansas Faithful.....oh wait, sorry, he left for a better school......

I'll be out there on MOnday the 13th the new terror begins, where we don't wait for Friday any more!

I have a New Hire Class to teach, and I have a meeting about the tee pads tonight, so I will not be at league.  I am hopeful that someone else will be able to step up and run it tonight, pretty please.

I had mentioned this last week as well.....

But its not me, its many others.  Aaron was seen picking up trash, he told me that he promises to pick up trash for at least 30 minutes before playing....even if he does it every 3rd time, it will make a difference.  Keizer has been a machine out there as well.

I do have a 166 Pro Valk in my car with your name on it though......
