Tournaments / City of Fountains Classic

looks like Mike beat me to this......


There are some great courses that you will be playing in KC, we are constantly working on the new courses, natural pads will still be in play at the Cliff Drive course, but Blue Valley is solid, if you missed your chance during the Wide Open, come play on the courses during the cooler months. I believe that lunch will be provided, and we should have some added cash for this event. There is still the $100 bounty at Blue Valley for anyone shooting a 59 or better........during a competition round, no date 60 is lowest score I have heard of even in casual play. Tell your friends about this awesome event, then stay overnight and play any of our other courses that you all love so dearly!! Don't forget next year is the 25th Wide Open, and though Cliff Drive will be a little different, like concrete pads, and a few tweaks, this will be a chance to practice competitvely with a PDGA win at these newest courses.

Many ways to get from here to there, the easiest is to take Cliff Drive all
the way East to Van Brunt, this means taking the lower road (think hole #4)
and staying left after Chestnut bridge, if you get to the Kansas City
Museum, stay on Gladstone to Van Brunt, enjoy t he houses.
Take Van Brunt South past Independence, past 12th street, follow signs on
continuation.( Take a left then a right to stay on Van Brunt).
At 23rd Street, take a left, go to Topping stoplight, and enter park on
South right after the light.
If it takes you more than 15 minutes, please call Mike Spady 913.269.4407
or Jack Lowe 913.485.5123

No WyCo for me, and  yes I did not care that I was last.  I was proud that I was Ble to sport a 1-2-3-4-5-6 on my card for the night!  Even losing tag #14 for #23 not a problem!  Glad Sprague was on my card to watch it as well!!

Cliff Drive / Work Days Coming Up
« on: August 02, 2006, 10:50:50 PM »
Work needed done-
#1-clear out area of taken out spots, clean it up.  Be sure #1 green is ready.  Remove trash, remove trash, remove trash.

#2-weedeat, take out tree that obstructs path, remove ankle busters, spray honey suckle.

#3-WOW look at this growth, remove growth after spraying with honeysuckle kill all along trail to pad and basket.

#4-trash off hill, spray with herbicide.

#5-put in new placement by old teeing area, spray honeysuckle down especially to the right (north) of current pin, clear out the entire area for newer landing zones.

#6-clean up area as needed

#7-spray all new Honey suckle growth, especially upon the hill heading up to the basket.

#8-MAN can a fella get rid of growth, lets see the CLIFF for crying out loud, get rid of all growth and expose the cliff, spraying the area with herbicide especially up to the "party zone" for the band to be seen.

#9-clear out around the green, take out tree hanging over the fairway that needs to go.

#10-get in the new placement area, to clear out for the stage for the band, will need a bridge to get the band over, need railroad ties initially, this is clearing out to the north of current location, and going deep.

The basic premise is to work on the area between #1, and new #10 and weed eat the funk out of it build a bridge, and clear to see the cliff on #8, I want to get that done this week! (ok before the event)

Any and all help will be appreciated, we need to clear out #3 as well it is OVER grown!

I am going to get this done, I expect you to do it with me.  Call and let me know what time you will be there!!

:)
(think that will work?)

Thanks-

Many ticks.  Beautiful fairways, excellent courses, over all a solid design on most courses with some holes that made no sense, putting a basket wedged in between 3 trees 5 feet above the ground, is about as dumb as you can get in my book.  But alas that was one hole.

I would suggest that anyone that ever gets the chance to play up in the Highbridge Hills courses, they make the trip.

This place is the BOMB, there is truly no other place in world that can compete at this point that I have played, and I am close to 300 courses played.

Thanks,

Jack

General Banter / Do you play any of the Leagues?
« on: July 14, 2006, 08:06:42 AM »
playing against better players only gives you ideas on how to play better, and improve your own game.  Leagues are a great way to cheaply improve your game, find people that will give you pointers, and meet some new great golfers.

« on: July 14, 2006, 07:55:28 AM »
I think that you are sending the wrong message to the P&R.  I think that you need to TALK with them prior to moving the baskets, and develop a game plan.  To just remove the baskets because one was stolen is not fair to all the people that play.  Putting a sign up that says that the basket was stolen on this hole would be better.  The tone in the letter does not exactly make a warm and fuzzy appearance to the P&R as well.

The land that you are playing is the P&R's, I undeerstand that yours and many other lives have been spent there, but you need to have that dialogue with the P&R so that this does not go generally into the wrong hands, and feel as though you are threating them.  I would spend some time talking with the person in charge of the park first then see what action plan you can put together.

I would also suggest if funding is that tight to have a course fund-raising event to give the city some matching funds and see if that would help show that you want to be a part of the solution, and not just asking for money.  Some departments have $$ others don't, if you could work on a game plan to make it so that they look as though they are not doing it alone, but partnering up with a good local organization that cares should go much further than just saying the city should pay.

Just my thoughts, but any basket thieve deserves to have thier thumbs cut off in my book.

Best of luck.

nononononono

If your dues lapsed within the last 30 days, you have a grace period.  At no point is there a clause that would allow you to keep the $$ instead of dues removed, ask Beckett, Arturo, Todd Henry, Mike D........ I think that all of them have hit aces during leagues more than once in the same year.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hope this is as clear as mud.....

Swope / 6-26 league
« on: June 30, 2006, 03:37:59 PM »
course was set SHORT for the solstice doubles, imagine that they didn't move the pins prior to league.

TJ is a slacker.  I bet he put his discs under the baskets before league started, and used some method of mind control to appear to throw discs....... :twisted:

« on: June 30, 2006, 03:35:24 PM »
Regular WW league at one point was over $2000, and was hit by someone from Topeka I believe.  That was before the $1 discount, and directly contributed to the change in the $1 discount.  

Before there was additional charge for non-members, after everyone and their friends started to show up, and it was hit by a non-club member I started a thread and this method seemed to meet with the most approval.

I wanted non-clubmembers to only get $50 for ace funds under $500, $100 for under $1000, etc......but alas this method seemed to be the best to everyone.

Now, for expired club members that hit an ace, as long as it is within 30 days of expiration you are ok, if it is over 30 days and you have not paid, then your loss (exceptions can be made if no notifications were sent.  Check your mailboxes soon as notifications were just sent this week.)

Hope that helps.

Jack
