::) :o ???

Uh so why Heritage? They don't have an agreement with the club yet.

We do have and have had an agreement in place with JoCo P&R (Heritaage and SMP).  We have worked with JoCo since 2002 to develop a course on SMP and the plan was in place at that time as well for Heritage as it was already on the 2020 Park plan (wanted to have it in before the year 2020).  It took some time to get everything ironed out on the SMP park, and when the timelines opened up for Heritage it was already considered a club course due to the existing contract in place and the partnerships with JoCo P&R.

I am liking the idea of a "pre-registration" but as I indicated having 4 teams of 2 to help at registration day 1 is something that I believe will also help out.

It is a growing event and one that not one person can facilitate, so please let's have the "official TD--Dick Parker" decide the courses, let the CC's of the course set up the layout in a challenging but not incredibly hard set up, and enjoy the weekend of disc golf!

I tend to agree, I also didn't like to do all the work (or have so many others help me in it) for the Championships I prefer to just play on courses we have.  We have enough, and that is also why the list that Doug made me look at and compile make your stance pretty damn smart to me!

Almost any combination of courses that doesn't include Swope would get a thumbs up here.

You didn't like the morphed 2 18 hole configuration at Swope?

I know it's way out south but a Heritage/Birdland day would be fun on the Kansas side. 

I'd love a Waterworks/Cliff day, but that's the mighty mo all over again.

And Old Settlers both of which are a few weeks apart....

I'm pretty sure LS has an agreement now, but I may be mistaken. 

Incorrect you are.   ;D :D  It doesn't.  But there are branches extended.  The work done has been appreciated by the KCFDC BoD and the club overall.  This is why in the recent BoD meetings when approached we did authorize funds to increase and improve the footprint of the course, but there is no agreement in place at this time.

its all good.  Really Doug this made me look up this information so we really can say that we have played at X over the last few years, and we should look at different courses.....So I do appreciate the dialogue with it for right now very much so!

Personally I would prefer a WW/Cliff day and a BV/Swope Short day

2007--Swope--WW-Rosedale--Down Under
2014--Rosedale--Down Under--Blue Valley--WW
2015--Swope Blue--Swope Pink--WyCo--SMP

The KCFDC MUST be played on courses that we have agreements/contracts in place with in order to qualify.

Since I believe in 2013 we have had to "split" the pools on opening rounds because there are more than 108 players (which already makes YUCH 6-somes).

I don't know where Dick will go with the plan this year, though there is something to be said about using courses we haven't to add to the balance of area, but we don't have an agreement with Smithville for example or Lees Summit, or Raymore, to name a few, and I think that many enjoyed using a Hybrid of Swope last year as well.  I could possibly come up with a 36 hole configuration at Blue valley as well (would be needing help with baskets, but it would be very cool....

So let's give the TD time to think about the options he has in front, give you a little history and some options as it requires a lot of work to make this work.  I also know that we need to have a couple of volunteers to help facilitate registration and membership collections.  I am thinking that if we had 4 to 8 people (this would be 2/teams) at check in we could have lines set up for A-E, F-K, L-Q, and R-Z.  That would help, we could register and sign up people in a more orderly fashion to help get the day off to a better start for everyone.

Realizing that if we are at multiple courses we need to move people, carpooling and sharing rides is required, as would be someone to help facilitate the "boards" at each course.  Realistically we are growing to a point on this event that we need to plan well to make it smooth for us all.  These are but a few thoughts that I have.

Swope   9
WW   8
Rosedale   5
WyCo   5
Cliff   4
SMP   4
Prairie Center   3
Down Under   2
Down Under   2
Blue Valley   1
Youngle   1
Birdland   1

The last 10 years of Club Championships Courses uses.  Swope has 9 because of last year with the Blue/Pink configuration, so really it was 7 years as "swope" and then 2 as "Pink/Blue"

Suffice it to say it will be a TD decision more than likely, with nominal input from us on this here 'lectric box making sense.  Let me see what I can find out about something I am thinking about

Lees Summit to/from Blue Springs via 470/70 - 12.9 miles 18 mins
Swope to/from Cliff via 71 - 10 miles 19 mins

Seems reasonable

all in Missouri, so reasonable for MO but not people in the SW KC (JoCo)

So I doubt that this will happen this way.

Remember its tough to pull this off folks especially when you have to have essentially 2 starting times on Saturday.  Then travel needs to be close....

Too much rain this weekend (with last nights area dumping) we got over 9 inches of rain in 48 hours.  As such no league tonight, we will try again on the 12th as there will be no league on the Holiday next week.
