Congrats to the many talented people stepping up and helping make our sport continue to be great.

Chase and Clue are great folks, and will do a fantastic job!

Welcome back Mike.

Carl, it is quite simple we had the same issue when private courses get mentioned here people seek them out.  John was being proactive for many, maybe not you in particular, but when people start look in here then they will be able to see.


Take it with a grain of salt.  Lord knows I carry a shaker around with me......

Capital City Classic in Topeka, KS same day.

Agreeing with Rob.  Would rather play Shunga Temp over a new course that isn't as established.  Shunga is a fun trek, and would rather support that event as it is much harder to set up temp and the work that goes into it.

There is another event in Oskaloosa Iowa on Saturday as well that I had thought about attending, but the closeness of Topeka won.....

Water Works / Re: Trash cans?

I understand that these came from a MO P&R and probably have to be used for MO courses

Not the case at all.  They came from a business that I have finally made a contact with to use as we see fit, these aren't tied to any particular affiliation, so we can use them at all the courses as we see fit.

I just had heard they were still up there, but if they are all being used and these are extra's I can make that work as well with other parks!

Thanks folks for the reply!!

BTW, these melt with fire, which is why I prefer the plastic ones, because the metal ones do get used the in the manner that you so eloquently mentioned!

Have these been dispersed out on the course?  I heard that there were some on top still, I am hoping they are on the course not in someone elses yard

was thinking Olathe, Shawnee Mission Park as tops.

Cliff is an easy stay away from in the rain.  As would be WW, but it isn't horrible, but this time of year sticking with the JoCo courses (olathe and Shawnee) is probably your best bet.

WYCO / Fire?

Heard about the Ag Hall of Fame and the fire close by, was it on the course?  Curious if anyone knows....

Funny not seen you there Jack in the last two years...

Mainly because of this....
The only thing I didn't like about it was jumping thru your arse to get to the next venue in between rounds.  That and finding something to eat at the same time.  Otherwise, the courses and folks were/are great.  8)

I stand by my statement, and I did say......
Since Andy left the club there in 2008, it hasn't been ran as well as we get accustomed to here in KC. The courses are nice to play for certain, and you will get a nice mix of people that you wouldn't otherwise see locally.

Worth the trip most certainly.

so uncertain what jab you are trying to get from me.....This is of course my OPINE....but apparently suggesting you go to the event is not what Cap'n Quizzer wanted to hear.....

General Banter / Re: As some of you know, my CD is finally DONE! YAY!

PM one of us on that.  Since it is an all tee times, food isn't being out there at this point as it was last year, but there are options we can look at.

Sorry, I meant Star not CE...

General Banter / Re: PDGA RENEWAL
« on: February 16, 2016, 02:13:58 pm »

Just because this is getting a tad bit confusing.

The PDGA Club Affiliate program allows those members who are active club members locally to get a discount of $5 (I believe) off their new or renewing membership.  There is a code that club members use, the KCFDC has not given that information out as we pool all the PDGA memberships and send them generally within the first couple of months.

The KCFDC has been one of the highest users of this, as such we have over the years received quite a few schwag items that we use for not only saving money, but winning the contest for most club members, so it essentially doubles our "prize portion" that we can get from the PDGA store.

In turn we have used this for varying things over the years to award our club affiliated events.

Hence why we ask that you join the PDGA through the KCFDC, you may not get a discount, directly , but you are clearly supporting the club in general for the long haul of the year.

I hope that this helps before we start looking for discount codes on what is a relatively inexpensive organization to join, of course if you don't play in PDGA events, it may not make any sense for you to join the PDGA, instead just join local and allow us to continue to be one of the best disc golf communities in the universe as we know it!
