Legacy Park - Lee's Summit / Re: 2014 League Director
« on: March 10, 2014, 12:09:24 PM »
I don't like Friday league because I'm usually at happy hour and/or out with the Wife.  I also don't like dubs, because I have to think too hard :)

No problem, that works great.  I'll be playing Rosie on Sat, but not Wyco.  Thanks again, it's nice to see an honest effort to return a lost disc.  May all your shots be aces!

Jon, I found your Voodoo on 17. I called earlier today, 2/14. I live close to SMP, so if you're out there this weekend, call the number I left and I'll get it returned to you.

Awesome!  Can you drop this by the DD shop or DGW?  I live in Lee's Summit, but work in OP.  I got some buddies that could also pick up from DGW if you're closer to there.  Thanks!

Blue Super Stupid Soft Voodo on hole 16 (I think this is the hole shooting up the hill, right turn to some pine trees).  Lost it under the pine trees to the right about 30-40 feet from the hole.  Name and number are on the disc.

From the sound of things, next weekend could be colder and wetter than the Ice Bowl!  Those hoodies are going to come in handy.

What disc are we getting?

I personally thought everything was outstanding for the space/time given.  I will reiterate some of the earlier posts:

Problem: The bathrooms were nasty.  Didn't bother me being a guy, but I saw more than one lady utterly disgusted by the "swamp". 
Suggestion: Since we are taking over the park for two days, maybe schedule a "honey wagon" to come pump out the old swamp water.  I know at Rockfest for instance, they have to bring in the pumper trucks about half way through the day.  Granted that's 50,000 people at a one day concert, but the idea is still sound.

Problem: The pavillion was packed
Resolution: Staff only on the inside of the pavillion.  Set up pop-up tents around the outside for players to interface with registration, chili/beer, etc..  I don't know if the club owns one of the instant shelters, but I'm sure several members do.  I have three, and would be willing to let the club borrow one or more for an event like this.

Problem: Hard to hear what's going on
Resolution: The schedule of events and times were posted.  When it got close to time for something to happen, I would walk closer to the speakers to hear what was being announced.  More speakers, different locations, etc would also help.  I also think clearing the pavillion of everyone but staff would also help.

Problem: Chili contest limited
Resolution: Like Jack, I spent some time/money making the chili, and don't even know who won the Chili contest, where I placed in the contest, etc...  I would like to see a top 10 placement.  I'm not saying prize, because that's not why I make chili.  Maybe some sort of prize for the top 3 or top 5, but just a place for the top 10 or top 1/3 or something like that.

Problem: Beer donations by free will?
Resolution: Not sure I understand the problem if the beer was donated and the donations go to Harvesters.  If you do anything else, that might be pushing the grey area of of selling beer, thus requiring a liquor license and all of the red tape that goes along with it.  I'm no expert, but do we really want Johnny Law hanging around (I know some cities have an ordinance that requires an officer if liquor/beer is being served).  Again, I'm no expert but this just seems like one of those grey areas I would avoid.

Just my thoughts.  I thought everything was mostly smooth with a few hiccups here and there, which are to be expected with an event this size.

Used 8 to get a 48, only 3 helped me (missed that 40 foot putt twice) Used 4 on drives and threw exactly the same drive twice each time (once three in a row)

At least you remembered to bring your Mulligans.  I left ten in my truck when I switched cars with the wife.  I doubt they would have helped me much anyway.  At least we got a great weekend for disc golf!

Do we need to do anything extra to participate in this Mini Series?  Is there an additional cost, above and beyond the tournament entry fee?

I'll bring a power strip and an extension cord.  Along with the cow and hog I will put in my chili.  How many porta-potties are we gonna have again?

Just signed up.  This will only be my third time playing SMP. 

Nice job on avoiding opening weekend of deer season.  Although, I think that's youth weekend, so maybe more gun shots than usual at some of the parks :)

My first time all the way through SMP.  Definitely not a fluff course.  I had a bit of trouble with the trees and a few missed puts.  None the less, I had a blast and might just have to add SMP to the Tuesday rotation.

Summer Leagues / Re: What's going on with the lack of information?
« on: August 13, 2013, 03:09:12 PM »
I'm fairly new to the sport, and have only been a club member for the past two years.  I don't have kids (just the 4 legged kind) so I probably have more "free time" than some.  I would like to volunteer but I'm not sure how.  I'm an IT guy, but I'm not a programmer, so I won't be much help to you in building an app.  I think using spreadsheets for keeping track of league scores is at least a good place to start. is a free suite of software that is compatible with MS Office.  So you don't have to spend a bunch of $$ to get MS Excel.  Almost everyone has a PC, or at least knows someone who does.  Even if you have to convert from analog score sheets within a day or two you could have at least a spreadsheet of the nights scores.  Once you have the data in an MS Excel compatible format, you can export to almost any program such as MS Access for a database where you could then run and publish reports. 

You could also utilize Office 365, or some other hosted solution, to setup a sharepoint site where these reports could be published if the current KCFDC website does not work for this sort of document sharing.  Anyway, I'm just throwing some ideas out there.  Maybe this has all been thought of before, or I'm just preaching to the choir.

Let me know how I can help, and I'll do what I can.

Good deal, just making sure.
