Winter Leagues / Remaining Glow Dates
« on: November 28, 2014, 07:01:21 PM »
We are looking for someone to run the remaining KCFDC glow dates;
DEC 20   Rosedale
JAN 24   Swope
FEB 21   Liberty
MAR 21   SMP

Ben Crosby has other responsibilities to take care of and we'd appreciate anyone who would like to help. I am unable to, otherwise, I would.
This would mean coordinating the set up and return of all the chains and lights. I am guessing a three to six man team can get this fairly quickly if planned in advance. We will provide a payout sheet and all that jazz. Interested in helping out? Contact me or just respond here.

I am planning on running a couple of glow leagues soon; one at Old Pike and the other at WW. Details to follow.

General Banter / November 15th Club Elections/ Voting Item

KCFDC Club Elections
[/b]

November 15th Westport Flea Market Banquet Room 4:00-8:00
[/b][/size]

Once again, the KCFDC hopes a free meal will bring a large turnout for this year’s elections. “Drinks” are on you. The KCFDC has got the rest.

Current club members attend for free. Not current? Re-up or pay 10 bucks for dinner.

The Chiefs and Royals baskets will be raffled that night. Yes, the baskets are going that night. Bag tags are also available that evening.

4:00 -5:00 Disc Swap Meet - Bring what you want to sell or trade. Bring what you think someone will want or throw, not your junk. This will last from 4:00-5:00 and can reconvene after club business and elections.

5:00 -6:00 Dinner- Flea Market burgers, chicken breasts, roasted potatoes, salad, ice, tea and coffee. Alcoholic drinks not included.

6:00 -8:00 Club Business, Nominations, Elections, Basket Raffle, and Results. Disc Swap Meet continues.

There are five positions to fill this year.

Nominees do not to be present. A proxy member will stand in and speak for him/her. Anyone interested in self-nominating can email: ekolkmeier@hotmail.com

IMPORTANT

There is a motion to amend our Bylaws, and this must go to general membership and members will vote on this at our meeting.

Article V covers Officers.
Sections 6 through 9 cover the duties of the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.
It was amended last year (2013) to include: "This office must be held by a board member who attributes less than 51% of their income to disc golf related industries."

The proposal is to eliminate this clause and allow anyone who is elected by the membership to serve in any Board position.

A bit of background is in order. When Jack and Tavish worked with our current attorney to file for a 501 C 3. I believe it was the attorney's suggestion to include the original clause that forbade anyone who made most of their living from disc golf to be elected to the Board.

Last year's (2013) Board softened this by allowing such people to at least serve on the Board, but only as At-large Members.

The motion is to amend the bylaws to eliminate the clause that reads "This office must be held by a board member who attributes less than 51% of their income to disc golf related industries." from sections 6, 7, 8 and 9 in Article V.

Cliff Drive / Shared Use- MTBs and Disc Golf
« on: October 07, 2014, 01:49:49 PM »
This is just a heads up on avoiding some issues at Cliff Drive and Stocksdale as we play the courses and use the parks.

I have been in contact with the shareholders in these parks and everyone agrees we just need to raise awareness and inform and educate. So, there will be some new signs in both parks/courses/trails and as you play/ride be courteous and respectful of each other.

There will certainly be some feathers ruffled but the last thing we want is an injury or bad press for our sport and stewardship in the parks.

« on: July 19, 2014, 10:35:17 AM »
After too long, the Tech Team is returning. Rob Hoesly will be the head, but he is new to the position and will need some of the previous team's expertise. Anyone interested in being part of this can PM me or Rob and we'll get a date together for August. Thanks

General Banter / Disc Golf Demo and Putting at Red X
« on: May 27, 2014, 10:38:17 AM »
I am looking for anyone interested in volunteering on June 14th from 1-4 at Riverside Red X. Red X is supporting the Wide Open this year and we are promoting disc golf during their Father's Day Classic Car Show. I will be set up on the east side of the lot. I am going to have some putting baskets, mini baskets, and open green space to do some demonstrations.
If anyone is interested in helping out, please send me a PM. It should be fun and a good chance to educate some folks on disc golf and our community.

Swope / Swope League 4/29/14
« on: April 29, 2014, 12:58:37 PM »
Just gauging interest in league tonight. Patrick Smith will be there in place of Van tonight, and I'll be helping out too.
So with the rain, I am wondering on how many will come out to play tonight, and if I should wait to bring Ace beer till next week with presumably higher attendance.
I'll check back when we get closer and see what the weather is doing.

Water Works / Erosion Prevention
« on: March 27, 2014, 04:51:10 PM »
The last couple weeks I have put in a couple hours pulling logs and sticks along fairways 3 and 6 to help stop the dirt from flowing down the hill in the rain.

Any help is appreciated and it only takes a couple minutes to place a few sticks or logs along the edges of the fairways.

General Banter / KCFDC Elections and Swap Meet
« on: November 11, 2013, 08:36:44 PM »
<repost>

So, I must admit I have a vested interest in promoting this event. This lies on two fronts; I like to collect collectable and great throwing discs, and I hope the swap meet brings out more members, possibly new members, for the elections.

So dig deep in your closets and golf bags/bins and show up at 6:00 in the back room of the Westport Flea Market to buy, sell, or trade discs and disc related items.

Elections and BoD report starts at 6:45. This year’s KCFDC Bag Tags will be available too.
