Yeah I was kind of shocked they are doing one at Pomona.  I like that course (mostly).  It's best to play in the spring.

I'm wondering what they are going to do with the hole that shoots over the playground and then the three holes directly after that which have very narrow fairways with the tall grass.  I'm hoping they convince the Corps of Engineers to widen those 3 fairways a bit and do an alternate pin / teepad for the playground hole.  Otherwise, I really do like that course.

Agreed.  That playground hole is a bit dangerous, if other people are using the park, which I am sure there will be.

And some of those fairways are a bit tight.

The spring 2014 PDGA will be a rotating course league.  I'll post more information later when I have some time today / this weekend.

 ;D

Don't worry bout all the cry-baby haters Rob...If you build it, they will come. 
I'll participate in as many as possible.

I'm sure it will be a 2-rounder at Centennial. 

FYI,  The day after this tourney, Sunday June 1, there will be another DD B-tier just south of Lawrence/Topeka at Pomona Lake.  Pomona Open ;D

This year we will be using all three courses with each pool playing two of the three courses.


All Amateur Players who pre register prior to May 1st will get an Event T-shirt and I have added $1000 cash to the Open Divisions.

*Like*
 ;D

We should talk to the Marina restuarant/bar, and see if they will be open.  They mentioned to me once that they would be interested in running some deals for Lunch for any tournament we put on during Lake Season.

It's always at Rosedale at 6:00pm.  But will probably start around 5:45 early in April, due to daylight.

I was working on finding someone to help me split time running this league on Friday, but I guess keeping CD league on Monday is alright with me.  I still think a "Closer to the Central City" league on Fridays would be great.  I could run some monthly fun minis at (Cliff, Swope, BV, WW) if people are interested.  Maybe that would help break some people into the idea.  I got some fun ideas.

As a newbie to Kansas City and a relative newcomer to the game... is this still going on? There seem to be a lot of league nights for more advanced players but I can't figure out where to start.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe New Players League will start with the rest of leagues this year, which will put that on Monday March 31st.  You should definitely get out and try it out.  There is a good group of guys always playing on Mondays, and the more newbies the better!!

General Banter / Re: Wyco League Change?
« on: March 14, 2014, 02:56:55 pm »
In response to the apparent upheaval, I will address what I have read here. First and foremost, Rob Martin took the initiative, gauged interest, created a poll, researched what he needed to do, and brought it to the meeting for approval. (Applause all around for proactive and involved membership!)

It seems odd to me that once the decision was made there was suddenly all of this interest. Where was it before? Quality organizations do not spend their time and energy reacting. Instead, they are proactive and look towards the future. Again, Rob has demonstrated this in every way.  In addition to Rob’s efforts, Chris Timko searched as did Mike Petrin (VP of Kansas), Ben Crosby (VP of MO), and Rick Rothstein (at-large board member and salty staple of the KCFDC). There was no positive response. So, just to be clear there was a lot of behind the scenes work on this well before this meeting.

Changing the league date is not at all about competing with another WYCO league (WYCO Park is 18 miles from Rosedale). We have precedence fort this as well. The KCFDC already runs two leagues on Tuesday night (SMP is 21 miles from Swope). Wednesday is the night Rob can run the league and that is the park he prefers.

The commitment to running a league is more than just being there. It also doing the paperwork, reporting, and depositing. For the league coordinator, this is key to running successful leagues on the club side. If we do not accurately report, we cannot pay out aces in a timely fashion (remember Young Park last year?), nor can we report income accurately which has negative consequences across the board for the clubs status and makes headaches for our treasure and lawyer. I would also add the improvements the KCFDC has funded in the last years are from that income as well tournaments. 

Lastly, WYCO is a Wide Open course this year. I am sure many players, local and out-of-towners, will appreciate the opportunity to play rated rounds leading up to the event. The bottom line is Rob took the initiative, and if in the end this doesn’t work out and people don’t like it, we will make changes. Chamge is hard to do. I get it. People may choose to play WYCO Friday still and that is awesome. No one is saying otherwise. It is true Swope went back to Tuesday, and we have had Van at the reigns all that time as well. IT’S THE PEOPLE that make the difference anywhere and everywhere you go. Let’s not beat down Rob for being on-the-ball.

Cliff Drive / Re: Leagues in 2014
« on: March 14, 2014, 10:28:16 am »
I have come to realize that people really hate change in this town.  So we need the Jack's, Ryan's, Jose's, Ted's, and Mr. Ramirez's of the KC area to weigh in.  These are people, like myself, that actually showed up on Mondays to play Cliff.  We need some more opinions.  I am bowing out for now. If somebody would like to split time running a Cliff Friday league with me, I am game.

Leagues / Re: RESULTS: Spring PDGA League format poll
« on: March 14, 2014, 07:51:15 am »

League Income:
SMP  $1489 (sorry Peter, referenced Rosie up above)


What the heck is going on at SMP?  Is that number real?  Does the club get kickbacks for tickets given out by the cops that is included in that number?  I am flabbergasted by that.
I was thinking the same thing Eric.  Got to be a mistake in the data there.

Went to a couple SMP leagues last year, and there was never more than 6 players when I was there.  Maybe that is total $ since SMP was put in back in 2007.
