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.

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.

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.

Whaaa, whaaaa. I have played quite a few Friday leagues at Wyco over the years, and after Arturo took half the $2,200 ace fund, and somebody hit it again shortly after, attendance died off from what I could tell. Last year was lucky to see 5 people out any given Friday.

A little change doesn't hurt that bad.

I'll see u on as many Wednesdays as I can make it Rob.

Mike, now that Wyco is moved to Wednesday, Let's push for Cliff on Fridays. 

I could help run it, maybe twice a month, if somebody else can split time with me.  My wife will not let me commit to giving all of our Fridays to Disc Golf.

Sounds great!!

I now vote that we move Cliff Drive to Friday Night Party League, in place of Wyco.  This will make Mikey happy.

I would be more than happy to help out with any clinics.  Before leagues would be ideal for me.

$10 Day-Glow Dubs  5:45 sign-up
$1 Ace-fund

I assume Utz still shows up, but haven't heard or seen anything in awhile, and I haven't been able to make Thursdays for quite awhile.

I'll be there either way, if anybody wants to play dubs on a beautiful evening. 

We can celebrate a KSU victory and a KU loss together with beverages!!!

I will pray to the earth gods that the winds stay below 10 mph this time!

Mid April:  I guarantee there will be plenty of wind.

They are all set

The pins were all set on Saturday, thanks to TravisD. Also per conversation with Scott, we won't be putting down extra OB this year.  Weather hasn't cooperated.

The weather hasn't played out as earlier expected. Many of the "ifs" I mentioned have resolved.  With one exception; volunteer help.  And that one may be resolving itself. Talked to Scott and he agreed that if we can get it done, to go for it. So it is quite possible the painted OB will be added this afternoon. I'll post again this evening with what gets done exactly.

I'll be out at 4:30 to help.

Although I will help, boo for OB's. This course is hard enough already.

It would not be Kan-U-Wyco without the OB's.  Hole 2 becomes stupid without OB, everybody would just short-cut it across the open valley.  Hole 10, same way, everybody could just play it wide and avoid all trees.   It's not about how far you can drive, it's about how far can you control a drive:)
